Britney Spears' New Boyfriend David Lucado: Just a Fling or the Real Thing?

Spears' new man is a regular guy she met through friends -- but can the pop princess relate to someone who hasn't lived in the spotlight his entire life?

Britney Spears has more going on than a new hair color -- she's got a new man! Since Valentine's Day, the pop princess has been repeatedly seen stepping out with David Lucado, a non-famous dude who recently moved to L.A. Lucado seems very different from Jason Trawick, the talent manager whom Spears dated for three years before calling off their engagement in January. But is it serious -- or just a rebound?

Since Lucado is, you know, not famous, details about him are scarce. In some ways, he seems like a good fit for Britney. He hails from Virginia (just like Justin Timberlake!), and you know that Britney likes a guy who brings out her Southern charm. He's also a self-made man, working as a legal assistant; it doesn't sound lucrative, but on the other hand, he's not in desperate need of a sugar mama (like, say, Kevin Federline). He's also reportedly a nice, down-to-earth dude, which could be refreshing for someone as entrenched in celebrity culture as Britney.

Then again -- can Britney Spears handle a totally normal guy? As a former child star, her sense of "normal" is pretty warped, and it may be tough for her to connect with someone who hasn't lived his life in a fishbowl -- not to mention how much the paparazzi chases and tabloid stories might freak him out. A manual to help you prepare for this kind of thing doesn't exactly exist!

For now, Spears' relationship appears casual and happy. The couple frequently hits the tanning salon together, and they were spotted dropping off Britney's sons Sean and Jayden at gymnastics class on Wednesday. Since it's still pretty soon after Spears' big break-up, slow definitely seems like the way to go!
