Britney Thanks Fans, Album Release Update

Britney Spears thanks her fans via her official website and clarifies that her album will be dropping this year. No official release date. Check it!

Dear Fans,

It has been a while since I’ve addressed you personally here on my official website. The last couple of years have been quite a ride for me, the media has criticized my every move and printed a skewed perception of who I really am as a human being.�Behind every decision I have made in my public life there always seems to be an apparent contradiction. I have come to terms with that which is why I usually don’t pay much attention to it.

The last couple of years have been very enlightening for me and now that I’ve had the time to be “me”, I’ve been able to sit down and think about where I want to go with myself as an entertainer with absolutely no strings attached. I am now more mature and feel like I am finally “free”. I’ve been working so hard on this new album and I can’t wait for you all to hear it and to go on tour again! I would like to exclusively tell you that I am working hard to release the new album sometime later this year, but the date is of course not certain yet. I look forward to coming back this year bigger and better than ever, and to also reaching out to my fans on a more personal level. I noticed today that one of my biggest fansites is shutting down soon and I want you all to know that I do understand all the reasons that went behind making that decision, and I am sad to see it closing. If I were you I’d be unhappy too if I had to read what I’ve been reading every day. But trust me, I get it. I know I’ve been far from perfect and the media has had a lot of fun exaggerating my every move, but I want you all to know that I love my fans so much, and I appreciate everything you have done for me, so Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

Love,
Britney

    This Chick is So Dis-Gus-Ting !

    She Cant Possbily Think She Will Actually sell Records Again. All The Producers And Song Writers [She's Never Wrote a Song In Her Life] In The World Cant Help Her [Parisite Hilton]

    The Negative Backlash From her Dirty, Nasty, Sluty, Pathetic, Disgusting Behavior Is Going to Be *HUGE* And Oh So EnTerTaning

  • Chanel

    Anybody who is still a fan of this ‘trailer trash trainwreck’, is just as dense as she is.

  • tanique

    the thing is she says it’s what the fans read, turning them off. i’m not sure she gets that it’s what we SEE, not read.

    she’s talking a good game, but i’m not really buying.

  • ?!?!

    (HOW) DID THE MEDIA EXAGGERATE WHEN SHE FLAUNTED HER VAGINA SEVERAL TIMES? PUHLEEZE!

  • Christy

    This would be contrite, sincere, and sweet…though still full of serious delusions of grandeur and abusively gross misstatments… if she had actually written it. And she may not be as “adequite” as BLOhan…but this has educated, thoughtful, grammatically-aware-ghostwritter-pretending-to-be-Brittney-by-forcebaly-dumbing-down-the-prose-ability written all over it. That’s what this really says…ya’ll.

  • Lucia

    I’m sorry but that is a load of bull!!! It is unbeivible to think that she is a mother to two very young children!!!! And where does it mention who’s been taking care of them while she’s been out on the town???

  • CBear

    Umm… “absolutely no strings attached” who the hell does she think she is kidding!? She has two very innocent little strings attached… her children. Where does she leave these children at all hours of the night and day while she is busy showing off her junk?

    Crap head who deserves to fall and wipe out. She should be taking care of those children!

  • lurker

    Did she even write this?

    The redeeming quality to Britney would have been her talent, if she had any, but she doesn’t.

    That’s what’s so annoying. She can’t sing and most of her music was just music producers working their magic with the use of machines and techno sounds. Britney was a pre-packaged producted fed to the public and everyone bought into it.

    Showing your privates three or four times to the public, partying, getting drunk almost every night, probably doing drugs, smoking, and overall acting like a immature childish pop tart is not something the public will forget. She’s a mother of two. If she’s getting drunk at night, having a hang over in the morning, and passing out at clubs, when exactly does she take care of her kids?

    With Britney it’s all about Me, myself and I. Good luck JJ and SPF.

    BRITNEY COULDN’T HAVE WRITTEN THAT IF HER LIFE DEPENDED ON IT. By the way, what happened to her little Bit Bit. Did the “dog as a handbag” fashion craze end?

    Britney will release again and, with adequate marketing, sell enormously large amouts of records. This behavoir will serve as nothing but a catalyst in a country that rewards publicity in any form with the only thing it has: money. Write whatever you see fit but don’t be so typically ignorant, you may not approve of her actions but they will NOT prevent her from selling records in America. In Europe? We buy what we enjoy, regardless of what an artist does in their personal time, so if the material is of a high quality it will sell, and after these “atrocious actions” it is unlikely that she will release anything but top class pop, and make more money than any of us ever will. And fair play! Well done Brit, screw ‘um, what you do is your choice, not any conservative American’s.

  • MIKESMOM

    If whoever composed this piece of fluff had mention her getting the
    mental assistance she needs and is over due for, maybe her fans
    would consider that she has acknowledged the fact that she
    is out of control and is seeking help…. first to get well… second for
    her children…. and then only then her so call career.

  • sudo

    I will buy it for sure

  • Apelilae

    At the risk of being totally tarred and feathered, I feel some compassion for her. I’m not a fan, but I don’t dislike her. Yeah, she has trashy tendencies, but at least she’s real and honest about herself which is more than I can say about other celebs. I’ll have to see how her next album is. Maybe it’ll be the first I buy (or download). I just hope she’s spending time with her babies. Her actions recently made me wonder if she was having some PPD or was totally overwhelmed by two tiny tots.

    How many celebs do you know of who expose their privates to the world for little boys to see? Tell me, huh?

  • Chanel

    Now the filthy slut is campaigning to get more money from you suckers, to replinish her coffers.

  • Denise

    How many innocent little boys have seen Britney’s private? As a mother, I don’t appreciate this whore exposing herself for little children to see. We have to protect our children from this kind of behavior. No, I would never buy anything for my children with this nasty whores name on it.

  • kae

    Irish Guy,
    From your blog, it sounds as though you think Americans are conservative and ignorant. Congratulations on making a blanket statement and ignorant generalization about people. Well done. Being a liberal myself, and having family that lives in Europe, I have generally agreed with European politics. America certainly has it’s problems and I will be the first to acknowledge them but please, get off your high horse. In America, Europeans are often perceived as having a high opinion of themselves and you certainly have projected that nicely. Good for you!

    In regards to Britney Spears, you obviously like her music. That’s your opinion and I respect that. In my opinion, there is no such thing as “top class pop” and honestly, Britney Spears has very little talent to begin with. There will always be people, especially young people, who will buy her albums because they like her presentation. Many of us, however, do not suscribe to the culture of raunch, which is exactly what Britney Spears represents along with Paris Hilton, Lindsey Lohan and others. If you do suscribe to that, then fine, buy her albums. I personally don’t care for her music or how she handles the media attention. I believe that she is behaving in this fashion because she seeks the same audience that once bought her albums. Fortunately, people are growing tired of her routine.

    And one last thing, to write that all America has is money is one of the most ridiculous comments I have ever read over the internet.

  • LV

    kae,
    very nicely written.

  • Susie

    I think she needs a time out. Stop all the partying and madness for a few months. Make people wonder where is Brtiney Spears. Try hard to clean up this mess. That said I have never bought any of her music. I am not her target audience which is made up mostly of very young girls and teens. I am a woman in her 30s with a professional job husband and three year old daughter. Now if my child starts to emulate her then we have a problem. Till then I like everyone is watching the train wreck. Always thought Christina was the more talented of the two. Seems she is also the more clever one as well. She sure cleaned up nice and found a nice chap… Britney should also try some of that…

  • claire booth luce

    It’s over skank.. forget you!

  • kae

    Susie,
    I totally agree with you!

  • Maturing?

    I find it hard to believe that she is maturing. Her behavior choices show a lack of maturity: the man she chose, the missteps with her children, the friends she chooses the clothing she does not wear, do not show maturity. No, she does not get it!
    Her children deserve better than to have parents like them!
    Do not get me started on her LACK of talent!

  • James

    Lack of talent is the small issue. The bitch is just plain vulgar.

  • Jillian

    Britney: “Yeah, I am the vulgar bitch’, but you people are the SUCKERS, keep buying my no-talented records, my foul perfumes. Keep padding my bank accounts. SUCKERS!!!!!!!!!! I need more money SUCKERS!!!!!!!!!!

  • May

    I am apalled by her behaviour! Please get the police! and save the children from this woman. She is not fit to be a mother.

  • Denise

    Irish Guy, just because some of us don’t appreciate that whore exposing her privates for our children to see, does not mean we are conservative, I’m a liberal. I don’t want my little boys being exposed to a grown-as woman showing her privates parts, little children should not see that. Yet by it being on the internet a lot of children might be exposed to it. That trashy vulgar sk*nk should pay for what she did, not once, but 4 times. Everybody I know is making sure they do not give her any money, not support anything with her name on it.

  • May

    Kae, you are smart!!

  • disgusted!

    If any other mother acted the way Britney does, you KNOW the CPA would be all over it, but because it’s Britney, no one says anything.

    The CPA or some kind of ADULT needs to step in for the sake of those kids. It’s not about how crazy Britney acts anymore, it’s about those poor kids. Let her party and get drunk but she should learn that if she’s not going to act like a responsible adult and mother, then there are consequences that she has to face.

  • Susie

    One question where are Britney’s parents? All of a sudden they seem to have faded totally. She needs parental guidance right now. Also there are new photos of her partying again. So which is it? Does she want to repair her image or does she want to keep partying? I mean it is her life and she can decide what to do with it but she needs to make up her mind about all this and decide. She should have said I am young and I want to enjoy myself leave me alone. Either way this girl does not have more than a few more years in the business. Can’t sing or act. Mandy Moore, Christina and Jessica Simpson have all tried hard to manage their lives if you ask me. Jessica handled her divorce with dignity and is not a party animal. Nor does she hang with the wrong crowd Say what you want about her father but at least the Simpson camp is doing something right. She should take some cues instead of trying to be friends with Paris.

    Ill buy her album and I bet a lot of people would buy it.

    Britney’s sweet and this letter means a lot to her fans.

  • the truth

    Sorry if this sounds harsh but I don’t care what Britney does and think the world should stop caring too. We should stop caring what party bimb*s like Paris, Nicole, Lindsey, and Britney do. They obviously do not care how destructive they are being and neither do their parents. Their parents are just making excuses on behalf of their daughters and covering up their antics with lies. If the parents don’t care, then why should we? They are all going down a dangerous path, maybe what happens to them will serve as reminder to what will happen to all those girls that think these girls are good role models. Let them self destruct so they can be immortalized as a reminder for every person out there that chooses to defend their actions. I for one will not worry my head about they do. They do these things for attention, once the media and people stop providing them with that attention they feed off of, they’ll either stop or do worse things to get attention. If their actions causes them to self destruct, go right ahead. Then maybe finally will get it through their heads to stop defending this kind of behavior and prevent others from going down the same path.

    Irish guy sucks…Kae rocks better than Britney anyday.

  • Browsing

    You go Kae!

    My general observation is that Britney’s prior success was due mostly to the image she sold to the public. Her first image was that whole Lolita ploy with her sexy school girl outfits–that balance between innocence and blossiming sexuality. She played to that image (for her tween/teen fan base) by that whole I’m a tease but still a virgin gimmick (until Timberlake busted that myth). After that, she cultivated the sexier image of young woman in control of her sexuality/life/destiny thing and since her fan base was growing up with her, that image proved successful for her since some young women could still relate to that. These past images/personas however are no longer viable for Britney for as she has so publicly demonstrated, she is neither the sexy innocent anymore nor the young woman in control of her life (see downward spiral since marriage and break- up to K Fed).

    Britney did have talent and although that may not have been exceptional vocals, she could at least dance and sell an image and a catchy tune. These days, though its unclear whether she even has that going for her. If Britney has a chance of making a comeback, she needs to find a new image to project that will ring true for her and that a significant segment of the population can relate to. Liberated young mom? Introspective artist? Who knows but she better find one aside from the Hilton/Lohan character she’s been exhibiting lately because otherwise, she’ll discover that the number of people willing to buy her next album can all probably fit into Hilton’s SUV.

    Irish guy,

    Britney Spears can’t sing or dance.

    People forgave Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson the whole boob debacle, honestly people really didn’t care as much as the media made it seem they did. But thing is, Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson can sing and dance. That’s the difference.

    I don’t care if people in Europe think Britney is so great. Europe brought us the damn Spice Girls. There is obviously a sector in Europe of people who enjoy crappy music and want to spread the crap all over the world.

    Conservative, liberal, blah, blah, blah. You have bad taste in music period.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    Use of the word “Skewed” is proof that Britney did not write this.

    “Like”, “Y’all”, “Whatever” would be more along the lines of a Britney-ism.

    Skewed is a publicist’s word.

    Britney write your own mea culpa next time. You’d be more believable.

  • SandiJ

    Britney, shut up and go away. No one cares.

  • stacy

    christina Mite have more talent but aint near as famous as britney is and doesnt come near how much money britney has made. BUt Britney hasnt gOt any excuse to act they way she acted and she needs really to make up for her actions. Everybody makes mistakes.But she needs to show that she is coming back not by words but by actions.

  • carrie nae

    Flaunting her P***y was exaggerated by the media??? Anyone who buys this crappy letter are really stupid!!!

  • angie

    yea….sorry but im NOT buying it [or your new record] go home & TAKE CARE OF YOUR KIDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • OMG

    she’s quite pretty and her music is ok but i’m disgusted of how she treats her children. She goes partying till early hours in the morning and just got out of rehab.
    what is she going to do next?
