Britney Spears Was In The Studio…With A Pack Of Marlboros: Photo

You know what’s great? When Britney Spears says she’s been recording new music, she means she’s been recording new music. Last week Variety published a somewhat eye-opening read on the big business of Britney’s empire, and in it, the pop veteran stated, “In my off-time I do record. Once in a while I’ll just go into the studio if there’s a really good song that I have in my head and want to do. I think as artists you’re constantly in creative motion. If I stopped writing songs then that’s a part of me that would stop in my life, and I need constant motion… I’m definitely more in a creative space now.”

As if to prove her point, Spears posted a photo on Instagram last night that shows her in the studio, with headphones attached, lyric sheet at hand and pack of cigarettes and Starbucks beverage front and center as well.

Britney quite clearly means business. Head below to see the pic full size.
