Happy Friday, kids! Ms. Spears kicked off our new ‘Mixtape Music News’ segment this week, so to close out the week, today’s music news is living that Britney life. Be a music slave for these five pieces of Britney music truth….
1.Britney opens up about her Vegas residency to Billboard magazine….
In the issue out today titled, ‘Britney’s Gamble,’ our girl Brit Brit is on the cover and inside she dishes about her (somewhat) domesticated life in Vegas, what inspired her residency and….when new music is coming out. In the coveted issue, the magazine also takes a glimpse into the starlet’s life since she blasted off on her Planet Hollywood residency, ‘Britney:Piece of Me,’ on Dec 31st, 2013. Since the first curtain call, the pop diva has performed over 100 shimmering shows and of course, making it rain all the way to the bank. To check out more on this story (you know you want to), head to Billboard.com and read this.
2.Celine Dion and Britney did what in Vegas??
Also in the exclusive article, Britney admits that Celine Dion was her inspiration for the show…..after they had a gal pal sleepover at Celine’s place. The piece goes on to say that in 2003, right after Brit wrapped up her dazzling ‘Dream Within a Dream Tour,’ her and a friend stayed at Celine Dion’s palace off the Strip to see how the window shattering chanteuse did her thing away from the touring circuit. “I remember how beautiful it was — really cool, low-key — and her dressing room was great,” says Spears, who did the interview from her family’s residential suite in Vegas, “I was actually jealous, like, ‘Oh, my gosh, she gets to be in one place all the time.’ Everything clicked: To have your children and your family and that way of life, it just makes sense to have everything in one place.” I wonder if they braided each others hair and told secrets? To be a fly on the music wall that night….
3.This squeaky ‘Oops’ video….
Sorry, I just had to….one more time.
4.Her new album is….NOT coming soon.
The good news? Britney’s working on new music! The bad news? It’s not hitting headphones anytime soon. “I’m gonna do [a new album] slowly but surely,” the Starbucks queen told the mag, “There’s a lot going on with my kids and schools and, you know, adding new sports and stuff like that. I’m gonna try to do my best to do an amazing album, but it’s not my full priority right now.” She then added, “Kids can drive you crazy.” Love the reference, boo! We all know Britney’s last album, the “ugh” ‘Britney Jean,’ flopped on the charts, so the longer the wait the better so maybe this time our girl will come striking back with something Spears-licious. “Right now we’re just concentrating on putting out a few great singles as they come,” says Spears’ manager Larry Rudolph, “We’re not really talking seriously about a new album yet. Albums just aren’t as important in the digital age as they used to be. Britney will get to one eventually, but not right now.” Sigh….get to work, Brit. We’re waiting….
And we’re done.
