Britney Spears Blackout
Britney Spears should consider renaming her upcoming album. However fitting, Blackout just doesn't seem like an appropriate title for a woman who was declared, in court, to be a habitual drug and alcohol user. Did we mention she also recently lost custody of her kids?
The latest news, pertaining to Spears' album, is that the release date has been moved to Oct. 30. Its was originally slated for Nov. 13, the same day Celine Dion's new record drops.
Perez Hilton's theory is, Britney didn't want to pull a Kanye to see who could sell more albums. He alleges that Spears is afraid to compete with Dion.
However the official reason for the early release, a rep tells People, is "internet leaks." The rep tells the mag, "the label is doing everything possible to prevent and avoid any further illegal distribution of songs, including moving up the release date of the album to Oct. 30.”
