Reports of Britney Spears appearing on an upcoming issue of Vogue have been greatly exaggerated.

In fact, it ain't happenin' at all!

So what gives? Read on to find out how this rumor got started...

The confusion began this morning when gossiper Liz Smith reported that "Vogue's celebrated Patrick Demarchelier has come to the U.S. from London to photograph Britney Spears."

Sure he shoots for Vogue, but Spears must be posing for another magazine, a source tells me.

Spears' first and only appearance on a Vogue cover was back in November 2001 for an issue dedicated to American fashion (it hit stands just weeks after Sept. 11). The issue was a flop, according to the source.

Editor-in-chief Anna Wintour "will never put her on the cover again," the source says. "She's just not a Vogue kind of girl."

A rep for the magazine confirms there are no plans for Spears. "She is not appearing on or in Vogue," the rep said.

No matter because Ms. Spears is still a hot commodity. And no doubt there are plenty of other editors doing backflips and more to get the comeback pop princess on their covers.

See ya on the newstand, Brit!
