Fans of pop princess Britney Spears around the world can breathe a collective sigh of relief today that she’s finally decided on her new single. I can reliably confirm that it will be titled, “Make Me (Oooh).”
“The single and the video will thrill fans because it’s all new, totally different and somewhat unexpected. It’s different; it’s a turn. She’s gone from pretty straight-forward pop to a really interesting vibe with a lot of really cool stuff.”
If all goes as planned, Britney’s new ninth studio album will follow one month after the single’s release. Britney has said: “I just know that the direction I’m going in is so good. It’s the best thing I’ve done in a long time.
“I’m just particular with this record — it’s my baby. I’m proud of the work, and it’s very different. It’s not what you would think at all. I’m not rushing anything. I would much rather have it be completely how I want it to be. I just want it to be done right so that my fans will truly appreciate it.”
Meantime, British tabloid reports that she will appear in a London Palladium “Cinderella” show in the British capital for five weeks over Christmas are being officially denied by her team.
“It’s simply not happening, and we haven’t even been approached with an offer,” I was told. Britney is expected to continue her hit residency “Britney: Piece of Me” at Axis at Planet Hollywood over Christmas and New Year’s as she did last year.
Britney’s new single “Make Me (Oooh)” will be added to “Piece of Me” at Axis when the next segment of her residency resumes June 17. Her current run wraps April 22.
