Ever since 1998, when the 17 year old teenage ‘pop sensation’ Britney Spears hit the top of the charts with “Baby One More Time”, she has owned the throne as the ‘Princess of Pop’ for over two generations. Even after all these years of press, two children, having the best-selling album by a teenage solo artist and eight studio albums so far, Britney continues to reign supreme.
However after an exclusive interview with Billboard, the thirty-three year old ‘pop princess’, reveals that she has her eyes on another younger pop sensation and can’t help but have her album on repeat. Whilst chatting about her ongoing residency show Britney: Piece of Me at The Axis at Planet Hollywood casino and resort in Las Vegas where she’s holding court all the way through to 2017, she revealed that she loves singing along to Taylor Swift’s new album 1989 while getting her hair and makeup done.
“It’s so much fun — ‘Out of the Woods’ is a good one”, Brit admits, almost as if she is about to hand down her well-deserved crown. However, I think its safe to say that Taylor shouldn’t exactly slow down just yet, because from what she revealed to Billboard, Britney is far from giving up her hard-earned crown. The “Oops, I did It again” singer also revealed that she’s “slowly but surely” recording her ninth studio album, and that won’t be the end (I know, right?)!
However, with recording the album alongside having two sons, a lingerie line, her Vegas show and a blooming relationship with boyfriend Charlie Ebersol, she admits she is taking her time. Even though this will be the penultimate album before having an extremely impressive TEN studio albums, I really do think it will hit the charts with vengeance.
