Britney Spears delighted fans on Thursday night (14Jul16) when she dropped her comeback single Make Me.
The 34-year-old singer hasn't released any new material since Pretty Girls, her collaboration with Iggy Azalea, failed to set the charts alight last May (15). But Britney didn't have that problem with Make Me, featuring rapper G-Eazy, which shot to the top of the U.S. iTunes single sales chart just hours after its release.
When Britney was informed of her success by a fan on Twitter, she replied: "This is an incredible feeling. Thank you, thank you, thank you!! #MakeMe."
Britney is back to her breathy best on the single, which features lyrics such as: "No rules, From the butt of the car, let's take it back to my room, Igniting the heat of the woman, let the sparks fuse, Blowing up to the ceiling, we're burning bright, When we cross the line."
She also shared the cover art for the single, which sees the mother-of-two showing off her incredible figure in a white crop top, skirt and thigh-high white boots.
Her ensemble features a train on the back, and Britney flicks her blonde hair to the side as she poses sexily for the shot.
Make Me is the first single from Britney's upcoming ninth studio album, which she has been working hard on for the past few months.
Speaking recently about her next record, Britney told V magazine: "It's not what you would think at all. It's the best thing I've done in a long time. I'm proud of the work, and it's very different; it's not what you would think at all. But I'm not rushing anything. I just want it to be done right, so that my fans will truly appreciate it."
Britney has also been kept busy with her Piece of Me residency at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, which she is set to continue until 2017. (Bron: Music-News)
NEWS / Het Amerikaanse popicoon Britney Spears zou in de periode 2007-2008 gekampt hebben met een drugsverslaving. Dat verspreidt entertainmentnieuwssite TMZ, aan de hand van gerechtsdocumenten. Britney Spears belandde in die periode ook in een instelling vanwege psychische problemen, maar ook dat zou nu in verband gebracht worden met haar overmatig druggebruik.
De documenten die TMZ in handen kreeg, betroffen een rechtszaak tussen de zangeres en haar voormalige vriend en manager Sam Lufti. In die documenten werd de (zeer matige) toestand van Britney Spears beschreven toen ze in 2007 Lufti ontmoette.
De zangeres lag toentertijd in scheiding, ze was verwikkeld in een voogdijstrijd en had het contact met haar ouders verbroken. Bovendien worstelde Spears, zo blijkt uit de documenten, met een drugsverslaving.
Volgens de rechters deed Sam Lufti zijn best om Spears 'clean' te krijgen, maar familieleden van de zangeres beschuldigen Lufti er juist van degene te zijn die haar aan de drugs hielp.
Ondertussen heeft Spears haar leven opnieuw op de rails. Vader Jamie Spears kreeg in 2008 het beheer over de financiën van zangeres, die zo haar carrière succesvol kon uitbouwen. (Bron: Belga)
NEWS / Singer Britney Spears was literally stuck atop a tree after suffering a stage malfunction during her concert on Saturday (2Jan16).
The 34-year-old pop star is currently performing shows as part of her Las Vegas residency series Britney: Piece of Me and when she graced the stage over the weekend, Britney found herself stuck to a tree while singing her hit song Toxic.
Fortunately the entertainer was able to keep it professional, dancing and singing while a stagehand unhitched her from a harness that broke down. When functioning properly the harness attached to her body allows Britney to fly over members of the audience, but due to the mechanism failing she had to stay rooted to the tree.
When she was released from the harness by the stagehand, Britney walked down some stairs attached to the tree prop and continued the show.
The entire incident was captured in video footage obtained by TMZ.
Just a few days into 2016, the musician has experienced many clumsy moments.
On New Year's Day (01Jan16) Britney took to Instagram to post a picture of a facial injury, informing fans she collided with a pole.
"Good morning 2016! Don't mind the little bruise on my forehead... Ran into a pole," she added in the photo's caption.
Meanwhile Britney has plenty of things to keep her focused as the year unfolds, including new music.
In November (15) the blonde beauty confirmed via social media she has been in the studio creating fresh songs.
"Working hard and hardly working...new album...wheeeee! (sic)" she wrote alongside a photo of herself and two friends pulling secretive poses on Instagram and Twitter.
Britney's 2013 album Britney Jean boasted hit single Work B***h and will.i.am collaboration It Should Be Easy, following their successful teaming up on his song Scream & Shout.
Her Las Vegas concert residency Britney: Piece of Me began in December 2013 and it officially comes to an end on 22 April (16). (Bron: Music-News)
