Britney Spears made another cameo in the midst of her comeback — this time at a Los Angeles courtroom.

Spears appeared unexpectedly Friday for a hearing in her ongoing conservatorship. A court spokesman said after the hearing that Spears appeared to give an update on her upcoming album, "Circus," and details of her tour and other promotions.

Her father, Jamie Spears, has had control over his 26-year-old daughter's personal and financial affairs since February. The court made the arrangement permanent last month, but Spears can petition to end the arrangement.

The court spokesman says she did not make that request Friday. Spears has not appeared in court during months of conservatorship proceedings, but has been represented by a court-appointed attorney.
