Britney Spears Fans Start Petition To Change ‘Glory’ Album Cover

Britney Spears‘ ninth album was officially announced yesterday (August 3), which is legitimately exciting music news. Once you got the title (Glory) and the release date (August 26), naturally you moved on to the album cover…and you probably made some sort of underwhelmed or confused “Oh…” the same way our staff did.

Well, that feeling is so widespread among the Spears stan community that there’s a petition asking RCA to change the album cover. “We Britney fans find that the cover art is not a suitable representation of the music that Britney is putting out and we are calling for it to be changed,” lead petitioner Austin Dame writes. “We ask that RCA Records/Sony Music Entertainment change the album cover to one that would be a better and more suitable choice for the album.”

The letter never gets into specifics, but everything from the font to the Photoshopping job to the duckface to the overall feeling that it has like three Instagram filters have been pilloried online. There’s also this simple oversight: “Show us her body!”

As of this writing the petition has 739 signatures.
