Vogue Interview: Britney talks about her new campaign for Kenzo and how she defines mom fashion

Britney Spears has one not-so-fond memory of the 1980s. “I used to wear big bows on top of my head,” she says on the eve of the debut of her first luxury fashion campaign (it’s hard to believe there’s something she hasn’t done). “I mean, ugly was the way to go in the ’80s, it was all just completely obnoxious—but there was also something so refreshing about that and the fact that we didn’t care what anyone thought about our clothes.” When Spears was approached by Kenzo’s creative directors, Carol Lim and Humberto Leon, about becoming the face of the label’s second nostalgia-based La Collection Momento for Spring 2018 (a tribute to the debut of Kenzo Jeans in 1986), she was excited by the prospect of bringing back that loud, no-holds-barred, ’80s attitude.

The bright campaign was shot on location in Los Angeles by Peter Lindbergh and features pieces like a cropped denim jacket, thigh-high lace-up boots, and a sweatshirt and baseball hat stamped with a throwback version of the original Kenzo logo. “This collection is very youthful,” says Spears. “We had fun on set, even though it was a bit weird for me at first. I am used to shooting in a studio or a small space, and this was on the street. We were out there and I had really promiscuous clothes on, which felt odd, but, of course, on film it turned out to be really cool.”

Let us not forget that Spears is a 36-year-old working mom of two. The days of schoolgirl miniskirts and red vinyl catsuits are far behind her, and she tends to gravitate toward more practical, bohemian-inspired clothing, mostly in a palette of soft ivory and white. “It’s tricky because as a mother, you don’t take as much risk with your style,” she says. “I think when I was younger I took so many risks and really went for it. There was no planning what I wore, and it was like, okay, I am just going to put on the most outrageous thing. I think as a mother you hold back from that out of fear of embarrassing your kids and out of respect for them.”

When Spears is home with her boys, Sean and Jayden, she is “in a nightgown most of the time.” And while she may not be wearing things like meat dresses or thongs on the red carpet, she does say that “there is something very courageous about the younger generation just wearing whatever they want all the time, but I don’t know if I could do it at this point. I think I would go and hide under a rug or something, because I’ve been dressing a certain way the past 15 years and I wouldn’t know how to react to a big change.”

Luckily the Kenzo campaign has given Spears a new outlook on embracing more playfulness in her current wardrobe. And playfulness, after all, is something that comes naturally to her—just watch one of her incredible Instagram videos featuring her own idiosyncratic version of a runway walk. The giant hair bows might be long gone, but Spears is not afraid to step out of her comfort zone and get experimental. And her sons sometimes give her the confidence she needs to mix things up. Watching them wear things that clash or have wild prints, she says, is “intoxicating because you are like, You know what? I’m not going to care what I wear today.” She adds, “As a mother, I used to be very strict about what they wore, but, at this point, they are growing up and becoming their own people. I want them to do their own thing—I respect that.”

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
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.
Red Hot Lipstick,
Just check out my song.
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.

Secret Project leaked: Britney’s the new face of KENZO’s latest collection

O.M.G. Britney’s secret project might be that she’s the new face of KENZO’s latest collection and the first photos from the promotional shoot leaked a few hours ago! They look amazing tbh (A bit too much photoshopped but amazing anyway).

Neither Kenzo nor Britney have confirmed this new partnership but the pictures are being removed from everywhere because of copyright. Also, Brit’s wearing the same clothes that we saw on the original instagram post and also the set is the same.

As I said before, they are being taken down so I won’t post them here directly, but you can see new 3 pictures here.

Anyway, we are still waiting for the official confirmation. Stay tuned.

Secret project 😜🍎🌺🍎
