The popular popstar has created a Path account, which is sort of counterintuitive as the mobile social network only limits you to 150 friends. This was Spears’, who has over 14 million followers on Twitter, first time visiting Silicon Valley.
Rumor also has it that Path is raising a Series B round of funding, wanting to bring in between $25 million to $30 million at a $250 million valuation. Existing investors and Khosla and Greylock have expressed interest amidst an environment that is producing many high-profile Series B raises.
The company has previously raised a total of $11.2 million in angel and Series A funding from Index Ventures, First Round Capital, Founders Fund, SV Angel, Crunchfund and others. It recently experienced unprecedented scale, due to a successful pivot.
Update: We’re hearing that Spears also visited the SOMA-based Beautylish. Guess she’s interested in tech, finally.
