Britney Spears Is Getting Her Own Holiday, As She Rightfully Deserves

It’s Britney (Day), bitch!

Incredibly, it’s already been just about a year since Brit Brit began her Las Vegas residency, Piece Of Me, and the reviews and sales numbers have been utterly stellar — so much so, that Planet Hollywood is now giving back to the living legend in the form of a new holiday.

On Wednesday, November 5, Las Vegas will be celebrating “Britney Day” at The LINQ Promenade, where Clark County Commission Chairman Steve Sisolak will “present Britney with an official proclamation, as well as the Key to the iconic Las Vegas Strip.” What will B do with that key? Likely indulge in her outrageous shopping spree for a bit with her BFFs, and then help herself into the Starbucks on the ground floor of Planet Hollywood for some delicious frappes. More »

Did You Hear?

:: Remember that horrible time when U2 added their new album, Songs Of Innocence, to our iCloud accounts? Well now they are finally apologizing…kind of. The band’s frontman, Bono, addressed the fiasco during a Facebook Q&A session: “Oops. I’m sorry about that. I had this beautiful idea and we got carried away with ourselves. Artists are prone to that kind of thing. Drop of megalomania, touch of generosity, dash of self-promotion, and deep fear that these songs that we poured our life into over the last few years mightn’t be heard. There’s a lot of noise out there. I guess we got a little noisy ourselves to get through it.” [Pitchfork]

He was just saying what it is, and what we need to do as young artists and how we just need to take control of this shit. We got the voice, and people follow what we do.” Read what else Tyga had to say here.

Two Demos Dev Hynes Recorded For Britney Spears Have Surfaced Online: Listen

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 SpearsBritney 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.

Listen to both demos from Dev Hynes after the jump. More »

It's Singleney, Bitch!
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 »

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. More »

It's Singleney, Bitch!
No 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!
