Britney Spears is a big fans of “the gays” – which is a good thing considering they make up 95% of her fan base (the other 5% are girls who are nostalgic for ’90s pop, whether or not they grew up during the era or weren’t even born when it took place). In any case, apparently people were shocked when, during a Q&A on Twitter, she named an anti-gay nutso pastor as her favourite author:

If you don’t know much about Max Lucado, check out a little something he wrote about his feelings on gay marriage:
“How will homosexuality impact our culture? What about the spread of disease? If gay lifestyle and gay marriage is endorsed – what follows? Polygamy? Legalized incest? If we can’t draw a line, will lines be drawn at all? Men and women were not intended for identical gender but opposite.”
“The legalization of gay marriages will erode the traditional family… Legalized gay marriage will lead to legalized polygamy and other deviations… The highest reason, however, for opposing gay marriage is simply this: God does.”
LOL yeah, okay bro. It’s amazing how fucking stupid people are, and how willingly they’ll follow a God that they truly believe could be so terrible as to hate his own creation because they happen to prefer their own parts in bed. So glad I’m an atheist (and before the nutters hop on board here, I’m not saying Christians are terrible people or that everyone believes the same thing this dickhead does).
Anyhow, do you REALLY think Britney sits down and reads any books, let alone Max Lucado’s? I wonder which member of her team came up with that answer and typed it in for her, since we all know she’s banned from the Internet. Don’t worry, gays, Britney still loves you.

Britney is work(bitch)ing her ass off doing promo for Britney Jean, her upcoming studio album, and it’s nearly time for her second single from the record to be released. It’s called ‘Perfume’ and it’s out today (check her Facebook page for when she puts up a stream). The lady herself recently chatted with E! Online about the song, which she feels will be relatable to everyone:
“‘Perfume’ is incredibly special to me because it hits close to home, and I think the story is relatable to everyone. Everyone’s been through an insecure moment in a relationship that’s left them vulnerable and I think this song captures that.”
It’s a ballad, so take that as you will – it could be very hit or miss. Here’s a little sample of the lyrics so you can decide for yourself:
Do I imagine it, or do I see your stare
Is there still longing there?
Oh I hate myself, and I feel crazy
Such a classic tale
Current girl friend, ex girlfriend, I’m trying to be cool
Am I being paranoid, am I seeing things?
Am I just insecure?
I want to believe
It’s just you and me
Sometimes it feels like there’s three
of us in here baby
Hmm… dunno, really. We’ll see!

Britney Spears has a new album coming out, Britney Jean, and with it, a new cover. She unveiled it (above) to her fans. How do you like it compared to Gaga’s ARTPOP cover? Both are anticipated albums from pop princesses.
Brit also wrote an open letter to her fans. Here it is, from her website:
I haven’t sat down to write you guys in SUCH a long time. Long overdue! We’re all so used to getting our thoughts out in 140 characters, but sometimes its nice to take time to sit down and write something a little longer and more personal. I am putting the finishing touches on my new album, “Britney Jean” over the next few days and I am so excited for you to hear it. I poured my heart and soul into this album and it’s been an incredible journey. I’ve learned a lot about myself, and as I am finishing, I am reminded of the incredible foundation that has supported me for the last 15 years. Thank you all for continuing to follow me on this journey and for allowing me to do what I love to do. I can’t believe this is my eighth studio album and I know I keep telling you that it is my most personal record yet, but its true and I’m really proud of that.
I have been through a lot in the past few years and it has really inspired me to dig deeper and write songs that I think everyone can relate to. Working with people like Sia, William Orbit, and of course Will.i.am has been an amazing experience. They have listened to all of my ideas and helped me bring them to life. There are a lot of really fun, upbeat dance songs, but it was important to me that I show my strength, and my attitude, and my vulnerability. Of course, I also have some surprises for you guys ;)
I want to show you the different sides of Britney Spears. I am a performer. I am a Mom. I am funny. I am your friend! I am Britney Jean.
Hope you love my labor of love!
Anyone here excited, or at least curious, for Britney Jean? Her video for the single “Work Bitch” (which is “for the gays” apparently) was interesting but only mostly because of the unnecessary photoshopping done to her bod.

Britney Spears is so precious. While it’s rather unfortunate that her past mental health issues (and perhaps current, though I know she’s well-managed via medication and her handlers) have kinda dulled her personality, a bit of BritBrit still peeks out from time to time. Of course, that’s a rarity – mostly she’s fed a script of soundbites and non-controversial topics to cover during interviews, the most recent of which is her Captain Obvious observation that there is pressure on women to be sexy all the time. Still, it’s a good and important topic to discuss – especially considering this is a trend she participates in and is obviously central to her career. I mean, look at the ‘Work Bitch’ video!
From Showbiz 411:
“I think it goes with what I do. It’s my job to portray more of a sex kitten than what I really am at home with my kids. As artists I think people who are really shy – I’m really shy in person – so when I get on stage, it’s really good for me to become this different character because it’s like therapy for me.”
“I think there is a pressure for girls to have the right nose, the right body and you are your environment so it becomes contagious when you get in that environment. You actually become that yourself, so it’s important to keep cool people around you to keep you grounded.”
While I know this is a bit of a “no duh” statement on Britney’s part, it’s good when big stars like her speak out on something so basic. Is it going to change the world considering she’s still playing her part in the machine? Of course not, but it might make little girls who look up to her think a bit more.

Britney Spears has had some boyfriends in her life – and even a husband, for a few short weeks – but Jason Trawick seemed like he was there to stay. They even got to the point of getting engaged (like, for real this time, y’all) and seemed to be on a path of matrimony, though I don’t know if I’d call it happy since he stood to inherit and control ALL of her money since she’s still got that weird conservatorship over her. In any case, that relationship ended and you’d probably think Britney would be really torn up over it… but you’d be wrong.
Here’s what she said about the whole thing and how it affected her new album on This Morning (via DS):
“It was a hard break-up, but it wasn’t one of my hardest break-ups, but I definitely had some things to say in my album about it, so you’ll see.”
On her new album, she continued: “I wanted to do something that was a little more personal for my fans because I went through a lot this year and I wanted to share those personal moments with them.
“I co-produced it with will.i.am. He is so much fun to be with. It was really cool. He’s so excitable!”
Right, so who’s the worst break-up then? You thinking what I’m thinking? JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE! I still think they would have a marriage made in heaven. Also, is everyone getting excited for Britney Jean?

Oh, Britney Spears. What a dear, precious soul. Her single, ‘Work Bitch’, is doing relatively well, it seems, and she’s over in the UK promoting it right now on a variety of programs. Most recently, she stopped by Alan Carr’s Chatty Man (airing tonight), where she talked about the innocent motivation behind the single’s title. You see, Britney’s not all that into profanity – she uses the word “bitch” in a loving way!
“I don’t call everyone… that word. I just use it as, it’s like in respect to the gays as a term of endearment.”
“It’s like a street slang for everyone, you know, like you get to work, that’s what you do when you get to work and it’s like, cool.”
I call people bitches all the time. If someone annoys me, it’s “THIS BITCH”. So… I guess that’s not actually a term of endearment, but it’s also not the sexist brouhaha many try to turn it into. Live it up, BritBrit. Embrace your potty mouth, so long as you can actually have an intelligent conversation and be well-spoken without it. Wait, on second thought…
I kid. I love Brit! I also think it’s hilarious how she’s always talking about “the gays” – but hey, I guess you gotta know your audience (and I think that’s the only crowd still hanging on, there).
