britney-spears-out

Hello, world.

In case you’re one of the few members of the Britney Army/Godney Air Force/Spearitual Warriors who stayed up into the wee hours tonight (or, you know, you live in England or whatever and it’s morning), you might have just tuned into Capital FM to hear the Legendary Miss Britney Spears make a very special announcement.

Britney’s upcoming eighth studio album, due out on December 3, is called…

BRITNEY JEAN.

From Capital FM:

Britney explained the decision to title the record after her middle name by saying that she wanted to share the name with fans because her family call her it as a “term of endearment”.

I swear, I had no idea. Really. No idea at all… (Okay, so I did. Oops!…I did it again.)

Britney Jean: It’s raw. It’s real. It’s Britney, bitch. This is an album title for true lovers of BJ.

And so, as much as it saddens me to say, this officially retires the album’s working title, Blackout 2.0: It Gets Urbaner And Also More Spearitual And A Little More Personal (Raw). It is gone, but shall never be forgotten.

For now, let us gather together our vanilla candles, hold fast to our Spearitual rosary beads and prepare for the 8th Coming of Britney Jean — things just got even more Personalney (raw).

“Work Bitch” was released on September 16. (iTunes)

    I still prefer Blackout 2.0: It Gets Urbaner And Also More Spearitual And A Little More Personal (Raw).

    Me too. Me too.

  • Julio Ivan Acosta-Nieto

    She no longer has to prove anything to anybody, anymore.

  • Edgar Chávez

    Totally unexpected I must confess, but still kinda cool!

  • XXX

    hopefully the record will live up to its title… i expect an introspective record with not just songs like “will i am forced me to work, bitch”

  • Fre

    Would have preferred “Britney Jean Spears” instead. This personal title should be reflected with some introspective tracks, doubt we’ll get those. I just want more songs with lyrical content that relates to her life, doesn’t have to be insanely personal, rehashing her demons. I just want more “Piece of Me” lyrics and Brit’s most personal song to date (aside from “Everytime”) was overprotected for me, one of her few songs I love the lyrics to and relate to & that has an actual meaning vs just dance music. I wish DARKCHILD was a producer on this album, he’s way more ‘urbaner’ than Will.I.Am. (Also, as a Lindsay fan give her credit for using her sophomore title!!!! “You know I think it’s kinda cool when people talk in the beginning of songs…. I think that’s kinda rad..something a little more personal!” That Lindsay album was amazing!

    Billy Jean is not my LOVAAAAAAA
    Britney Jean is!!!!!!!!!!!! SO excited about this album!!!!!!! and I hope Alien is the next single!!!!!!

  • PieceofMitch

    This is a joke, right? Most artists don’t use their names in a title even once. Yet Britney’s uncreative team uses it twice? I can’t wait to see how “personal” this album is…

  • QueenB

    shut the fuck up bitch! This name is wayyyy better than something pretentious like flopfart! fuck off

  • PieceofMitch

    Calm down, bro. I didn’t bash your obsession over the name, so you can respect my opinion, as well.

    “Britney Jean: It’s raw. It’s real. It’s Britney, bitch. This is an album title for true lovers of BJ.” True lovers of Blow Jobs, muahahahaha

  • Matt25

    What?!
    OMG, I though it couldn’t go worse after un-creative song Work Bitch, and now this, her first and second name, God why?
    ZERO creativity…

  • Luke

    Interesting. I wonder what kind of album art it’ll be.

  • Teo

    I’m not crazy about the title, but I really don’t care about the name. I’m more interested about the content.

  • Carlos Rosso

    I hate that name! :S
