Britney Spears set for Christmas no. 1?
Britney Spears is gearing up to release an album in time for Christmas, thanks to her improving health and still-huge popularity, according to reports.
The last two years have seen Britney go through immense personal trauma, including shaving her head, a bitter divorce battle, losing custody of her children and, ultimately, being hospitalised in a psychiatric ward.
Her increasing ill-health left industry bigwigs concerned about the future of her career, but a fantastic comeback appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards – where Britney shone in Versace and picked up three awards – have left bosses so impressed, they’re hoping to release an album for Christmas.
One source told The Sun: ‘Britney’s last album, Blackout, was released in the middle of her meltdown and carried negative associations.
‘It did OK but wasn’t as big as her previous releases. Label chiefs vowed her private life would never be allowed to overshadow her career again.
‘However, they’ve been astonished by how well she’s managed to piece her life back together.’
Britney has reportedly been working on songs back-to-back for the last few months, being a regular face in the studio.
And now, plans are in the making for a single release in November, followed by an album launch in December, supported by high-impact live shows and performances.
We, for one, hope it’s a runaway success…
