Bad news, B-Army. Britney’s new single “Make Me (Oooh)” is being delayed until summer due to technical production difficulties outside Brit and her management’s control. Brit was supposed to premiere the single during her BBMA’s performance next sunday but that’s not going to happen anymore, so she will only perform a greatest-hits medley. Here’s the full report by Robin Leach.
I have good news that will make Britney Spears’ fiercest fans very happy, but I also have bad news that will get them very upset. As I pleaded a couple of weeks ago, please do not make me your punching bag: I am only the messenger!
As of Monday night, the 2016 Billboard Music Awards rundown for Sunday’s live 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET show has Britney kicking off the three-hour extravaganza hosted by Ludacris and Ciara.
Britney will be in the new T-Mobile Arena to perform a medley of her super hits, but plans for her to debut her newest single, “Make Me (Oooh),” hit a snag over the weekend.
I’m reliably told that technical production difficulties outside Brit and her management’s control have caused a delay in the scheduled release of the video and single until later this summer.
“There’s no point in Britney previewing it so far in advance if we don’t even have a new release date yet,” I was told. “She is like us truly saddened that matters outside our hands have set back the hoped-for schedule.
“We’re told that it’ll now be later in the summer, but we don’t even know exactly when yet until production hiccups are resolved.”
Britney also will be presented with the prestigious Millennium Award during the ABC telecast that also stars fellow Las Vegas headliner Celine Dion and regular Pink.
