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).

In case you missed it, Britney Spears‘ new album will be called Britney Jean and it’s gonna be… I dunno, probably slightly disappointing but still totally listenable, if ‘Work Bitch’ is anything to go by. She’s also just inked a deal for a Las Vegas residency but despite all this being on the horizon, she’s already looking forward to taking a long break.
Appearing on Nick Grimshaw’s Breakfast Show on Radio 1 this morning, Britney was asked if she’d ever have imagined she’d be putting out an eighth album, to which she put on an English accent and replied, “Never in my wildest dreams! I’ll take a break after this one for a while.”
Like, girl? You haven’t even started promo for this one. You need to chill (and maybe that’s exactly your point). To further prove the fact that Brit Brit has problems even with scripted answers not sounding robotic, here’s what she said when Nick asked her if she likes performing her old material:
“I don’t like performing my old stuff. I like performing my new stuff. I do it for the fans because they like the old hits, but I prefer the new stuff.”
So is it the new stuff you like, then? You like the new stuff as opposed to old stuff? Sorry, Britney, I think I missed it – which is it you like performing? Was it the new stuff? Bless her. She also did a sweet horse impression on air. Ha!

Britney Spears has talked about how hard it was to be sexy in her brand new music video, “Work Bitch.” It appears that someone gave her a little help in the sexy department. Images surfaced that show the “before” Brit from the music video from HOAX Films, the visual effects team for the video, and were posted on E Online. Yeah, they’re called called “HOAX” but they’re legit. E Online reported that the company said they, “completed sky replacements shots, set extensions and cleanup” for the video.
I hate to be that “that guy” but, leave Britney alone! Although it is fascinating to see these side-by-side and it makes me feel a little better about myself. Although even in the “before” she still looks pretty damn amazing.

Azealia Banks was recently prancing around Twitter (that’s totally a thing you can do) bragging about a big name collaboration she was doing – Britney‘s ‘Work Bitch’ remix, that is. Considering Azealia says a lot of shit that never sees the light of day, no one took much notice of it. But surprise! It actually happened and it’s here and you can listen to it!
Don’t get too excited, though – she didn’t actually work with Britney on this, it doesn’t seem – she basically just wrote a rap to put over the beat of the song. Well, that’s… special. So… how exactly is this a “remix” instead of a remake? Or just a sampling of the beat for an original song? I just don’t know. There is literally one tiny sliver of Britney’s background vocals left in this. Awful.
Also, I’m not a major Britney fan, but I gotta say, I like the original better. What about you guys?

Miley Cyrus may be a “big star” at the moment due to her bullshit antics and willingness to get naked at every turn, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some artists who aren’t interested in her fuckery. Put Gwen Stefani‘s name at the top of that list. You see, Miley wanted to duet with Gwen for her album, but instead she ended up with Britney Spears because apparently that’s how God wanted it or something.
Songwriter Sean Garrett penned Miley’s ‘SMS’ track (which sucks, by the way), and explained to MTV News that they wanted both Gwen and Nicki Minaj on the track but Britney was the best they can do. No shade to Britney, bless her, but… she’s not necessarily the most discerning creature.
“The first name that we tossed around was Gwen Sefani. We were talking about Gwen because you know Gwen got that edge too, but that’s how God works. We were throwing around those ideas,” Garrett said on Wednesday (October 9) about the song he helped pen with Mike Will Made It. “Nicki, we were talking about putting Nicki on there too. That would’ve been nuts too, but I think that’s how God works, this was absolutely the right one.”
“It’s like five different things, it’s hip-hop, it’s the girls, it’s a female anthem, Salt-n-Pepa, Britney and Miley… people didn’t get that.”
First of all, no. Do not dare compare Miley’s corny ass to hip-hop greats like Salt-n-Pepa. Like, take their names out of your mouth. Second of all, God didn’t will Britney spears onto that song – I guarantee you both Gwen and Nicki gave it a big HELL NO and they just had to go with it.
I think Bangerz is quite good in very small parts. I like the singles, I like the opening track and there are one or two others on the album that are listenable, but some of it is downright offensive to ears to have to listen to. That ’4×4′ song with Nelly makes me want to throw myself out a window. ‘SMS’ is “okay” but there’s a reason those ladies didn’t take part in it, and I assure you the Lord had nothing to do with it.
