Britney Spears kicked off her Las Vegas residency Piece of Me in late 2013, drawing devout fans and pop stars like Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry. The last time she renewed her residency, she planned to perform shows up until the end of 2015 (and there were even reports that her stay could easily extend to December 2016).
Now, though, Spears has confirmed to Good Morning Britain that she has renewed Piece of Me for another two years, up until 2017. “The last time we chatted here on Good Morning Britain to you, you just started that tenure,” said host Richard Arnold. “It’s been extended for another two years.”
“Yeah, I’m very excited,” Spears said. See the interview below. More »
During the London pit stop for her “Intimate Britney Spears” lingerie collection, Britney Spears sat down for some entertaining interviews. The singer first spoke with London’s On Demand Entertainment about the line, stating that she included both “Sexy Britney” and “Fun Britney” into the designs. She also spoke about what she’s been cooking up for her forthcoming studio album!
Spears has been spotted looking very happy in the recording studio, and the singer discussed who she’d love to work with on the new LP. A few names that popped up included Gwen Stefani, Katy Perry and Iggy Azalea! She also threw even more shade at her ex-boyfriend, stating “I’m gonna have a lot of ‘I hate men!’ songs and a lot of ‘I love men!’ songs, so it kind of goes both ways.”
In her second interview with Glamour Magazine, the singer talked about what she likes to wear to bed and her all-time favorite look from her music videos. View what she had to say below! More »
:: The Princess of Pop may soon become friends with the Duchess of Cambridge! Well, not yet. During her promotional tour stop in London for her lingerie collection, Britney Spears expressed that she’d love to see Kate Middleton in her designs. “That would be splendid. I’m going to send her one of every piece. So she’ll have plenty to choose from,” the singer said. [Vanity Fair]
:: Justin Bieber and David Hasselhoff were spotted on California’s Venice Beach shooting a secret music video. The odd pairing apparently worked out well, as Hasselhoff thinks the singer is pretty cool: “We had a lot of fun, and he’s a cool guy. You’ll hear more about it, but we’re just keeping it quiet because it’s really a cool video, and we had a blast.” [People]
:: Andre 3000 has acted as the legendary Jimi Hendrix in Jimi: All Is By My Side, but for a potential OutKast movie the rapper has someone special in mind to depict him on the big screen. Andre 3000 told Rolling Stone that he’d cast Leonardo DiCaprio as himself and Kevin Hart as Big Boi. He also wants it to be a comedic biopic. That actually sounds pretty awesome! [Rolling Stone]
:: Taylor Swift had a secret listening party for her fans at her Los Angeles home on September 23, as the lead-up to her forthcoming album 1989. But it wasn’t just as listening party, this is Taylor Swift we’re talking about! The singer reportedly baked cookies and had a dance party for her fans. Sounds fun! [Los Angeles Time]

Last summer, Dev Hynes and William Orbit‘s brief Twitter exchange fueled rumors that Hynes was cast as one of the many producers on Britney Spears‘ Britney Jean (released in November 2013). The speculation ended up being true, but his work for the project was ultimately rejected. A little over a year later, two of the demos that Hynes recorded for the Princess of Pop have surfaced online.
The first one is an airy mid-tempo that’s filled with computerized glitches and Hynes’ whispering “Leave us alone,” which Spears’ breathy coos would have worked wonders on! The second demo is a melodic ballad with a beautiful piano melody at its core.

You think you got what it takes to date Miss Britney Spears
? You better work, bitch!
Last night, after appearing at the New York Public Library to debut her new line of lingerie and sleepwear (The Intimate Britney Spears), the newly single “Perfume” pop icon came to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to chat with Jimmy about the pros and cons of dating a living legend.
Arriving to the stage to a thunderous applause from the audience (“it’s MY show!” Jimmy jokingly yelled), the diva — looking drop dead beautiful in red — was shown her very first Tinder profile (with a bio that reads, amazingly, “This better work, bitch!”) before launching into a silly pros/cons weigh-in with Jimmy. Although we know she’s busy in Las Vegas at her Piece Of Me residency (and in the studio!), it’s so, so nice to see her out having her fun too. She looks amazing!
Check out Britney goofing around with Jimmy up top, and let us know what you think of Singleney in the comments below! More »
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. More »
one gets away with cheating on our Brit Brit.
Last week, the “Work Bitch” superstar revealed (quite candidly) that she is now single on Twitter (“Ahhh the single life!”), which led to a string of TMZ stories (and a hilarious Instagram) detailing the break-up: Reportedly, ex David Lucado cheated on B, and there’s a tape involved. Or something like that. Regardless, Miss Britney Spears just ain’t got time for that foolishness and f–kery — and she’s speaking out about it.
During Sunday night’s show of Piece Of Me residency, Britney decided to speak up about the situation in an incredible mini-rant to her adoring fans: “The best thing about your boyfriend cheating on you…is that you get to go on another first date. Oh em gee, a first date! Woooooo!“ she exclaimed. Something more personal, indeed!

The Business Of The Legendary Miss Britney Spears
is a mighty thing: From her albums, to her ongoing Piece Of Me
residency in Las Vegas, to her billion dollar perfume empire with Elizabeth Arden, Hasbro deals and her recent foray into lingerie
, she truly is the definition of a work bitch.
As a result, Variety took a deep dive into the legacy behind Brit Brit to explore her many business ventures, as well as the way her team operates and what lies ahead.
For one thing, Brit’s truly the CEO of Britney Spears, according to business manager Lou Taylor, bitch. More »
At this Sunday’s (August 24) MTV Video Music Awards, Pharrell
will be the one male facing off against female pop forces Beyonce
, Miley Cyrus
, Iggy Azalea
in the Video Of The Year category
. And of course we all know those names today, but who remembers that Panic! At The Disco
once waltzed away from the VMAs with a Video Of The Year moonman? Or what song Green Day
nabbed the award for in 2005? Or what year Britney Spears
emerged victorious in the category?
Ahead of the latest staging of MTV’s annual extravaganza, we decided to flash back through the past decade, all the way back to 2004, to refresh our memories on exactly which artists and songs won the big prize on VMAs night. We then compiled snippets of all the winning clips into one two-and-a-half-minute video, which you can watch above. More »
is serious about the lingerie business. She’s already spent more time promoting The Intimate Collection
than her most personal album Britney Jean
and continues to delight the interwebs with amazingly airbrushed images that evoke the glamor (and fantasy) of Mariah Carey
‘s last three album covers. It’s completely over-the-top but I’m strangely here for it.
Take the pop icon’s latest promo picture. Britney models pajamas in a room so softly lit you can barely make out the furniture. And that’s fair enough — every diva wants to look their best — but what’s with the ultra-soft lens and bizarre Photoshop on her nose? See the full image (as well as one of the 32-year-old modeling sexy pink lingerie) after the jump. More »
