Welcome back to another week of Planet Britney, where we summarize all things Britney related from last week into one easy and simple post, perfect for those of you who just simply do not have the time to catch up on Britney news every single day.
This year has been pretty tough on man kind, we have lost so many innocent lives. We will never recover from what happened in Orlando, our hearts are with those who have lost loved ones.
Britney, Gwen, JLO, Selena (alongside a long list of iconic artists) joined forces to record a song to raise proceeds for the families of those lost and the words cannot be any more perfect. This song will represent every single soul lost and your memory will live on forever.
Although this song was recorded with the Orlando shootings in mind, we would have hoped that this would be the last lives lost at the mercy of a gun. Unfortunately this was not the case. We would also like to take this moment to dedicate this song to Aston Sterling and Philando Castile, you will never be forgotten. We stand with you when we say #Blacklivesmatter.
We would also like to take a moment to explain to those who misunderstood the #Blacklivesmatter movement. Yes, all lives do matter and the movement is saying exactly that. Of course all lives do matter, but what is happening, focus is being lost on the fact that everyone is equal. We are all family, we are all one, we are all brothers and sisters and we aim for the day that everyone is treated as an equal. We need to focus our attention on those who do not have an equal privilege. With this in mind, there are those that twisted the purpose of the movement as an opportunity to encourage violent behavior in return. This is not what #Blacklivesmatter stands for. Because of this, we lost more innocent lives in Dallas this week. We would also like to dedicate this song to those who tragically lost their lives. Not all members of the police force are an embarrassment to the nation, not all members of the police force have evil intentions, there are members of the police force that are there to protect us all and are with us in the fight for equality! To those who lost their lives, you will also never be forgotten.
We will also like to dedicate this song to Dylan Noble who lost his life, again to the mercy of a gun. Unfortunately Dylan was forgotten about by the media. His life was important too! Some claimed that gun crimes (and we call it for what it is) happen so often in America that most deaths sadly go unnoticed. This is not good enough! This is not the reality that we wish to accept! Dylan, like Aston and Philando was killed unfairly by those who ironically were meant to protect them. How many lives must we loose before our voices are heard? #Disarmhate Dylan, your life will also never be forgotten.
We would also like to take some time to remember those lives lost in Iraq and Turkey who again did not get the media attention they deserved! Why were their cries not heard! Why did the media decide that their lives were not valuable enough for intense media attention! Their lives matter! To all the lives lost, you will never be forgotten! More people are dying due to hate crimes every day! We need to stand together, only we can fix this! We need to show the world that we are all equal, that we are all one. Spread love, not hate! We want a change! The time is now!

SPOT THE BRIT
Our fave ‘Where’s Wally’ inspired game is back! Where has Brit been spotted this week? We kick off this week with a Flexi-Brit pic from 7 July:
Wowzers! And here we are getting an injury from stretching our arms whilst typing this text.. Good work B! Brit was also caught shopping with Princess Lexie in Vegas on the 8th July:
Totally adorable! Best aunt ever!! Britney was also spotted keeping up that super fit body at the gym:
Does B ever get some time to rest? Insane! Britney also posted a pic playing her amazing new game, ‘American dream’ on the 9th July:
If you have not played it yet, you need to get straight to it! So much fun! And last but not least, Britney brought the braids back and they look amazing:
What a week full of slayage!
Okay, we have to say it… We are dying for ‘Make Me (Oooh)’ to be released already! It feels like we have been waiting an entire lifetime. We tried our best to be patient, but B, seriously! We cannot wait any longer!
Can you blame us? With pics from the video shoot and this totally epic G-Easy interview…
…our hearts just cannot take it anymore. If this was not enough, you then went on to tease us even more by bringing the song’s producer, Burns, up on stage with you as your latest ‘Freakshow’ guy!
Like come on!! We are unbearably thirsty! And just when you think B9 chat was not driving us insane enough already, we then got this! Pouya, you are killing us!!

Does this mean another collab? Does this mean the song has already been recorded? Does this mean that the album is not finished yet and you are a new addition? What in the holy name of ‘Blackout’ is going on here? And just when you think we should calm down, we get these new outfits to raise our heart beats through the roof!
Holy Moly! Someone call 911! We may as well go and finish it all by watching this professional footage from ‘Piece of Me…’ We are officially done..
Missy gets us! That last Emoji sums up our feels…..
