Spears back in the limelight
HUNDREDS of fans cheered, sang and danced at the Roundhouse music venue in Camden as Britney Spears and a troupe of dancers performed her charttopping hits, including ... Baby One More Time and Oops! ... I Did it Again, at the Apple Music Festival in London on Sept 28.
The concert comes a month after Spears’ ninth album came out where she delivered a steamy, high-octane performance at MTV’s Video Music Awards.
“I feel like it’s been a while since I brought new music to the table,” Spears ( right) told Reuters ahead of her performance at the festival in London.
“I didn’t want to do a typical pop record for this. I wanted to do something really different.”
Spears, 34, said which features the hit song, Make Me, is still her style but with “a little bit of a flair to it”.
The new album also cements a steady return to music after Spears took a hiatus following a personal and career meltdown in 2006-2007 that included shaving her signature blonde locks, losing custody of her two children, and being put under medical care and a courtordered conservatorship. She made a comeback in late 2008 and since 2013 has helmed a successful residency show in Las Vegas. As for future musical collaborations, Spears has a couple of rockers in mind, specifically Aerosmith’s charismatic frontman Steven Tyler and Lenny Kravitz. – Reuters
