Britney Spears has been battling some bad tabloid press this week about her boyfriend, but took a moment today (Dec. 2) to confirm that her new album will be out next year -- in March as a matter of fact.
"I'm almost done with my new album and it will be coming out this March. I AM IN L-O-V-E WITH IT!" she Tweeted. A fine note for the birthday girl.
Newly anointed Grammy nominee Dr. Luke said in a video early last month that the album would "definitely" be out before March but, y'know, things change. The producer -- who has frequently collaborated with Spears before -- said that Darkchild may also be a featured contributor to the "grimier," electronic as-yet-unnamed effort.
Singer-songwriter Jessie J has also claimed to have written a single for Spears, 29 today.
The "Toxic" singer's manager Adam Leber also Tweeted that a new single will drop before Christmas.
And to put icing on the cake, the pop star also had some choice words for those tabloid report writers. "Ok, off on a romantic weekend with Jason for my birthday. xoxo Brit," she posted. "PS - Star Magazine, Radar Online, Jason Alexander and the rest of you liars, Ya'll can kiss my lily white southern Louisiana *ss!"
