I enjoy Britney Spears as a personality. She’s slightly slow in a charming way (don’t play, you know it’s true), can’t sing a note under the seven layers of autotune but still makes killer songs AND enjoys a good deal at Walmart. What’s not to love? Her music isn’t as good as it once was, of course – the days of ‘Boys’ and ‘Slave 4 U’ are long gone – but at least she’s still trying and somewhat managing to remain relevant well past the late ’90s teen pop boom. Good for her.
Speaking of which, she’s been hard at work on a new album – her 8th, if you can believe it – and she’s been holding a countdown on her website to some “big announcement” to be made on September 17:
Everyone believes this is a countdown to the release of the name of the first single from the new album, but it looks like the cat’s out of the bag because it’s called… ‘Werk Bitch’. Here are some tweets courtesy of Breathe Heavy:

Well, that’s exciting!
