Today's Evil Beet Gossip

Get Psyched!

When Britney Spears was photographed enjoying a beverage from Starbucks yesterday and looking considerably less crazy than the last time that happened, there was some speculation that Ms. Spears had something coming up.  Then today, MTV made an announcement that makes me feel like Christmas is going to come a little bit early this year:

Britney Spears will be releasing a new album in just a “few weeks”, according to producer Rodney ‘Darkchild’ Jerkins.

Britney’s label Jive confirmed back in March that she had begun work on her follow-up to 2008’s Circus, and now Jerkins has told UStream: “Britney fans are gonna be so happy in a few weeks.”

The as-yet-untitled album will be Britney’s seventh, and is expected to include contributions from producers including Danja and Predator Dub Assassins.

We can’t wait!

Me neither, MTV.  I feel like this is going to be something special.  Yesterday, as I was shuffling through my music, “Lucky” came on.  I smiled, and remembered a time when Britney Spears had her shit together, or could at least pretend like she did to make fun music.  I thought of how much fun it would have been to be able to dance to an awesome Britney song at the gay bar (“Womanizer” does not count), and I mourned the fact that it probably just wasn’t in the cards. Then this announcement was made.  And even though she’s been looking kind of jacked for the last little bit, I’m going to go ahead and get my hopes up.
