We’ve known about it for weeks, prior to several songwriters spilling the beans (Elijah Blake, Ina Wrolsden). However, the icing was not complete until hearing it from the horses mouth. Britney Spears has confirmed on Twitter that she is working on her eighth studio album. She wrote that she is “really focused on her music right now”, as well as expressing excitement at collaborating with “some new inspiring producers.” This admission further fuels speculation that she wont be back as a judge on The X Factor amid rumours of her impending sacking. Turns out she’ll be ditched because her ‘nuttier’ side did not come across (she was too boring) and her vocabulary (equivalent to a five-year-old) did not extend much outside of the cliched “amazing”. The big issue that might have sealed her fate is that she failed to bring in ratings and they’re smarting over the fact that they paid her an eye watering $16 million without seeing any results of their massive investment, LOL.
Technically she can’t be sacked because she was only contracted for just one season. The only thing that will likely happen is that they don’t ask her back plain and simple. She should have just did an LA Reid and announce early that she wouldn’t be returning because these ‘sacking’ reports make her look really bad and truly question the nature of her star power. Anyway, this new album will mark the last contractual one with her label RCA, and with mention that she’ll be exploring new sounds, it seems like this would be the one she makes a statement with.
