Capital FM have tweeted that Britney has ideas to tour the UK in 2014.

So the speculation i think will come into play this year soon. I just hope this time she has more success...or may play smaller areas...regardless a may think about going seeing her choreo/moves and presence is better by what people have said/what i have seen.

Also on another note...when i play Britney Jean...i cannot help but feel it would have been cooler if she incorporated more alien/spacey elements in the look and style of the album...seeing her eprformances and spacey glam stuff in Vegas just made me think...why not for the album too? I dunno just an idea of the images coming to my mind as i play the album really....i imagine her in space on a quest and landing on earth and feeling closed off and isolated.

Sure it sounds very Ziggy STardust but it would have worked i think. Anyways...just a random thought...love the album more and more.

Hehe, thank you...sometimes i would love them to happen just to see if my ideas are right or not you know?? I dunno XD But hey that is what i think and where i think she could have gone if perhaps 110% was focused on the album and music and imagery.

I do wonder if...if Britney is here i nthe Summer a re-release of BJ may happen OR a Europe only single is released to boost the album?? hmmm.

Been watching her CD:UK interviews/performances for In The Zone...man what a magical album and great era

Listening to "Britney" for the first time in ages on Spotify. I played this album to death when it came out. I think that it might be time to add it to my car.

This is when I became a big fan.

Britney Jean is a confusing album, Some tracks have really grown on me so much that I love them now, songs like Alien, WB, Perfume, TTK, Body Ache etc, whereas some I just hate now! Don't Cry, Chillin' and Hold on Tite (lol), are just so meh for me now.

Well done Britney for yesterday at the PCA!

Well deserved....killer album, Vegas residency and her own legacy....and she wa sin total awe of it...loved seeing that...she has no idea how loved she is...she closes herself back emotionally...i find it refreshing her seeing the ovation for her.

Well done Britney!

And Britney Jean is on blast again ) keeps growing on me...while i wish Dev Hynes made the cut and Naughty Boy and mroe Orbit...as i lvoe the mid-tempos o nthe album....i do hope they are saved back for a future release.....but Britney Jean as a melancholy, trippy, EDM affair works too. I love that.

I listened to that album again recently and I was surprised at how strong an album it was. It had quite a few good songs on it. I read that some of the songs on it were intended for the soundtrack to Britney's Crossroads movie but they decided to put them on the album instead. The soundtrack was never released as a separate album.

Wow! Congratulations to the pair of them if true. All very sudden though. They haven't been together for that long, have they?

Blackout is still my favourite album of hers I don't think they have been together too long. Did you see that the guy she married is a legal researcher?

Been listening to BJ this week, it has grown on me a lot, I liked it when it first came out, then I went off it, now I like it even more for some reason.

Our Britney has brunette hair now: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz...w-perfume.html

I think it looks nice. I remember seeing her with dark hair during the Blackout era.

Personally i love that she has gone darker and rooted loved it in the Blackout era....and loved when she did earlier last year too and went to Eltons Oscars event...wish she kept it or did something funky for the Bj album and era...i mean the music doesnt suit the "plain/blonde" look Britney had for it :/...needed to be spacier/glammer and a bit rooted .

dont know if you have heard yet...but Unbroken from the Femme Fatale sessions has leaked...and it is ....better than most of that album so massive in beats and love her voice on it...wish the full version was out there but it is a real corker and such a treat...wish this made the album cut

https://soundcloud.com/e-z-w/britney-spears-unbroken

one ay i hope that her label just lets Britney put all the material she wants on the album without "trying to be commercial" or whatever...i liked the themes and directions on Britney Jean...but i wish William Orbit kinda was the executive of the album so we could hear all the stuff they recorded...and Naughty Boy and Blood Orange and Danja....all intrigued and excited me...CHarli XCX penned some material too...would have been beautiful to see and hear that material and wish it made the cut...i hope one day she puts it out there...would be a success too.

Leaves us fans too hungry for more!

Also been having a Blackout heavy past couple of days....adore the album so much....just shows when an artwork is still so fresh and timeless today.....such gold!

Speaking of which i love that she has darker hair again

Unbroken is better than anything on Femme Fatale.
It's amazing, exactly what I want from her.
I wish she had the freedom to do what she wants.

I would agree. I think her label are holding her back. I read on a website about unreleased Britney music that Femme Fatale was originally gonna be an urban/R&B type album but the label didn't like the direction and changed it to be more dance-pop as that was what was popular at the time. There's also the mess that was Britney Jean. I thought it was gonna be Blackout 2.0 and she was gonna experiment more with her sound. Instead we get a rather watered-down generic pop album. I blame will.i.am for that. Why was he made EP of it?

Then of course there's the Original Doll mystery. That could have been her most personal album - even more personal than Britney Jean - and yet it was pulled? Nobody knows what happened to the songs from that album, even though some of them leaked. Some of her unreleased songs are very personal. There's one called Guilty and that's clearly about K-Fed: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_qvB75rLT4 And what on earth happened to Rebellion? Why has the full song never leaked? Another Britney mystery we might never know the truth about

Got Britney Jean recently for my birthday.

My faves are Passenger, Brightest Morning Star, Till It's Gone, Body Ache, Now That I Found You.

Don't Cry reminds me of a song from Circus but I can't think which one.

Work Bitch was a mistake for lead single. Perfume is so dull why was it a single, no wonder it flopped.

Alien could be excellent it wasn't for the unnecessary autotune.

I love Work Bitch but it didn't really fit in with the rest of the album. It should have been released as a non-album single to promote Vegas. Perfume is so boring! It's probably one of her worst singles. I think Alien or Passenger should have been singles instead. The album is ok but it's no Blackout or In The Zone. Speaking of Britney albums, I've rediscovered Oops I Did It Again and Britney (the album with Slave 4 U on it) recently and they're actually really good. I used to hate the Oops album but I quite like it now. Still not keen on most of the ballads on it though.

Post 47,000 for me
