So, there's good news and bad news. The good news is that Britney Spears is working on a new album. The bad news is that we have NO idea when it will come out. Why? Because the pop star herself doesn't even know.
The thing is: Britney's been busy. Like really, really busy. She's got a super successful show in Las Vegas that she basically commutes to (she lives in Southern California), she just launched a lingerie line, she's got a new boyfriend and she's got two kids. Needless to say, she doesn't have a ton of time to spend in the studio.
In a new interview with Billboard magazine, BritBrit explained why she's only sort of working on her next album. "I'm gonna do [a new album] slowly but surely," she tells them. "There's a lot going on with my kids and schools and, you know, adding new sports and stuff like that. I'm gonna try to do my best to do an amazing album, but it's not my full priority right now....Kids can drive you crazy," she joked.
We love that she's such a hands-on mom. We often see pictures of her at her kids' soccer games or just out and about with her little ones.
As far as her music, Britney's manager Larry Rudolph tells the mag that they're just "concentrating on putting out a few great singles as they come." Like the duet with Iggy Azalea?! We don't need an album, we'll take that song any way we can get it, which is exactly his point. "Albums just aren't as important in the digital age as they used to be," he explains. "Britney will get to one eventually, but not right now."
