OOPS…SHE DID IT AGAIN: Britney Spears is continuing to expand her brand. The pop icon, who appears in Kenzo’s latest campaign, is partnering with Epic Rights to launch a line of branded merchandise.

The Britney Spears Lifestyle program will span fashion apparel, hair care, accessories, exercise gear and electronics. It has an anticipated retail launch of spring 2019.

“I am excited to collaborate with Epic Rights to create a new contemporary lifestyle collection,” Spears said in a statement.

“We see this new lifestyle collection as Britney’s next step in connecting with her legions of loyal fans around the globe,” added her manager, Larry Rudolph. “Sharing her style and fashion sense through products she has developed is a testament to her authenticity as well as her commitment to and appreciation of the fans that have made it all possible.”

The superstar hopes to expand her brand presence in the marketplace on a global scale through the partnership with Epic Rights. The global brand management and licensing company will also manage her e-commerce initiatives, which include Amazon.

“Britney continues to be one of the biggest pop stars in the world with numerous multiplatinum records and awards over the past 20 years. As a passionate artist, successful businesswoman and devoted mother, her strive for excellence is unparalleled,” added Dell Furano, chief executive officer of Epic Rights.

In 2013, Spears opened her record-breaking residency, “Britney: Piece of Me,” at The Axis at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. The residency has sold almost a million tickets, generating more than $140 million in gross revenue. She will embark on a tour across the U.S. and Europe starting July 12.

New duet with Panic! At The Disco coming soon?

There’s a rumor floating around that Britney has recorded a new song with the american rock band Panic! At The Disco.

The info came from a Panic fan account that tweeted the info and the tweet would have gone unnoticed (like many other rumors on social media accounts) but Panic’s official twitter liked it… and back then they only had like 100 liked tweets ever (the account was created in 2008). This can only mean two things: They confirmed the rumor or whoever manages the account thinks it’s a good/funny idea.

What do you think? I love the idea.

On why she prefers to work with younger artists and when will she release new music: “I don’t know,” but added that she “would especially like to write for others. There are amazing artists nowadays and I would like to work with the young generation. They are the ones who want to experiment. The older ones are more jaded… they don’t always put their heart into what they do. Working with young people… you see them shine and open themselves [up]. It’s a lot more interesting.”

On the matching denim outfits she and Justin Timberlake wore at the AMAs: “It was my idea. I love denim and corsets so that’s what I asked my stylist [to create]. As a joke, we gave Justin a jean jacket and honestly we thought he would never wear it., but he did and it went down in history. Beyond the fact that we were matching, I think it’s because it was different. I was also wearing a lot of diamonds and I think that the casual side of jeans along with a lot of jewelry made the whole outfit very cool.”

New Blackout demo “Red Hot Lipstick” leaks!

Merry Britmas!!! A new demo has been leaked a few hours ago! The song is called “Red Hot Lipstick” and the producer says it was recorded for Blackout but it could have been for Original Doll too, because it sounds similar to some songs recorded during that period of time (Ouch, Welcome To Me, Everybody for example).

Click here to listen to Red Hot Lipstick.

Here’s what Doug Elkins said about the song and also the full lyrics.

I produced and co-wrote this song for/with Britney Spears. I could write a few chapters about my professional life with Britney Spears, but since I have always chosen to be pretty discreet on the subject, I’m just going to say a couple of things here:

1) Britney can sing. I often would beg her to stop chewing gum in the vocal booth (to no avail), but she really can sing well when she puts her heart into it. It totally bums me out when I see her lip-syncing (which is almost always).

2) I know it is ridiculous to feel bad for someone as wealthy and beloved as Britney, but when I see that medicated Francis Farmer-esque look in ward Britney’s eyes and her less than passionate performances of late, I really do feel like she is really not all there.

One of the most exciting moments of my professional career was the day Britney handed in this song as part of her finished record to her label Jive Records. As I waited over the course of several months to find out the fate of the song, I watched along with the world in horror as her marriage imploded and she went bat sh*t CRAZY. “Blackout”, the album that came out after her hair had finally grown back (at least enough to put in extensions anyway) included none of the songs she had turned in to the label originally. I have to admit “Blackout” was pretty good… of course, minus one glaring omission.

Shout out to my boy Christian Janson (AKA Noterock) for jumping on the track for eight bars and destroying it as always!

Lyrics

It’s time for us to take our flight,
Ooo yeah.
Just grab my hand and hold on tight,
Ooo yeah.

Come on take a second,
Take a ride with me,
Listen to the breakdown,
And you’re feeling free.
Come on everybody,
‘Cause we’re digging deep.
(repeat)

Red Hot Lipstick,
It turns me on.
Ooo yeah.
Red Hot Lipstick,
Just check out my song.
Ooo yeah.

(smack)

Red Hot Lipstick
Red Hot Lipstick

I like that
Red Hot Lipstick

Come on take a second,
Take a ride with me,
Listen to the breakdown,
And you’re feeling free.
Come on everybody,
‘Cause we’re digging deep.

(solo)

Red Hot Lipstick,
It turns me on.
Ooo yeah.

Noterock:
Something about you got me lifted,
Got me twisted.
All emotional,
You’re hips are gifted.
Red hot girl with red hot lipstick.
Ask her to dance?
Yes, I insisted.
(I like that)
Yes, I figured you would.
Lipstick on my neck,
We up to no good.
Don’t say nothing,
Just move to the beat.
Before I know it,
I’m in the passenger seat.

Come on take a second,
Take a ride with me,
Listen to the breakdown,
When you’re feeling free.
Come on everybody,
‘Cause we’re digging deep.

Red Hot Lipstick,
It turns me on.
Ooo yeah.
Red Hot Lipstick,
Just check out this song.
Ooo yeah.
