Britney Spears Gossip
Britney Spears gossip, latest news, photos, and video.
It’s MTV VMA weekend. Which is why everyone seems to be running a retrospective – the VMAs often deliver gossip that lasts the entire year. Look what happened with Miley in 2013. We talked about it for months. Lara sent me this look-back this morning – click here to see the slideshow. The last line made me laugh.
But I miss Britney.
I ALWAYS miss Britney this time of year.
Sarah was watching old Britney videos yesterday and couldn’t believe it. Someone tried to tell me recently that the Britney you see in Vegas now is back up to the standard of what Britney gave us at those old VMAs. That person is 23 years old. And then I realised…oh my God they don’t know. Read Full Intro
I read an article yesterday on the LA Times website. The title: Why isn't Britney Spears' latest album a hit? Britney Jean was released last week and came in at #4, the weakest first week of sales of her career. The article notes that the releases from Katy Perry, Gaga, and Miley Cyrus all did better.

Beyonce played Vancouver on Saturday night. Some of these costumes are different from when I saw her in Toronto in the summer. A few people I know who were at the show say that some of her faces seemed different too. That there is a little Kanye West’s fiancée in there now. But maybe it’s the other way around. Full Story
Britney Spears gave an interview to Entertainment Tonight and talked about her boyfriend David Lucado denying that her dad was the one who set them up. OK. We still don’t know exactly what this man does. It’s always just been, like, something at a law firm. Apparently they have mutual friends. Full Story

Britney Spears was at work yesterday on a new music video, presumably Perfume? Her hair was totally fried chicken. But there was a model hired to make out with her. Did she enjoy it? Looks that way to me. It looks to me like we’ve just pressed rewind on 10 years. She used to love making out with random hot guys in her videos. Full Story
It’s her new song. It’s the first new song in a long time that isn’t a dance track. Which, even though I don’t love it, and I certainly don’t feel about it the way I feel about Everytime, is a refreshing change. For the last few years, they’ve just hidden her behind the beat and all kinds of computer sounds. Full Story
From Britney to Miley and back again… Britney Spears called into a radio show yesterday to talk about Work Bitch. At one point, the conversation became about how “sexy” the video is – “sexy” highlighted because that it’s up for interpretation. Anyway, apparently Britney is uncomfortable with it. Full Story
Better…? Hear it the way I’m saying it. Which is drawn out and cracking in the middle: behhhhhhhh-tter? It depends on what we’re comparing it to. If we’re comparing it to, say, Ooh La La, sure, it’s better. If we’re comparing it to Hit Me Baby One More Time, celebrating its 15th anniversary this week, no, no, it’s still not the same.

Justin Timberlake’s new album The 20/20 Experience Pt 2 drops today. His movie, Runner, Runner, opens on Friday. So he’s right up in your face, breathing his sick germs all over you. JT is sick. He has the flu or some sinus issue. He was supposed to perform on The Tonight Show last night but couldn’t, or he was saving himself for tonight, when he’s scheduled to sing on Hollywood Boulevard.

There was a big ass Britney deal in Vegas this morning to formally announce her Vegas residency at Planet Hollywood. Work B**tch, her new song, is blowing up. It’s a dope track, non? With every listen I love it more. But it’s a song that requires badass choreography. And I suppose we’ll be seeing some of that in Vegas. Full Story
Britney’s new song Work Bitch was supposed to drop today but since a low quality version leaked yesterday, she decided to go ahead with the official release a few hours later. And? Well, I’ll be running to it later this week. Definitely a running jam. And spin class too. That’s a solid repetitive beat to work to. Full Story
When Miley Cyrus arrived on the red carpet at the VMAs last night, it was implied that she was about to take over from Madonna and Britney. Like, that’s how Sway opened. He name-checked both of them and then…
I’ll say this, before Duana takes over on Miley later on: back when Britney was what Miley is trying to be, in that sparkly nude bodysuit which, sh-t, seems conservative by today’s standards, she could dance her ass off. With more than just a tongue and a crotch lift.
“Britney would have made it better” was my final tweet last night after live-tweeting the VMAs. Miley is supposed to be in her prime. So the equivalent Britney’s Oops I Did It Again. What Miley gave us last night was pretty much that time Britney’s nail went flying during Gimme More. Read Full Intro
