Britney Spears says she will never return to the music industry

Amid rumors that Britney Spears is working on a new full-length studio album — which would be her first since releasing “Glory” in 2016 — the singer shut it down with a strongly worded post on Instagram on Wednesday.

Presumably inspired to speak out after Page Six published a report the same day saying that Charli “Becoming Princess of Pop for almost a decade.” “She calls the news 'garbage.'

Next to an image of the painting “Salome with the Head of John the Baptist” by artist Guido Reni, Spears writes:

Just so we are clear that most news is garbage!!! They keep saying that I'm reaching out to random people to make a new album… I'll never go back to the music industry!!! When I write, I write for fun or I write for other people!!! For those of you who have read my book, there are a lot of things you don't know about me… I've written over 20 songs for other people in the last two years!!! I'm a ghostwriter and honestly I enjoy it!!! People also say that MY BOOK WAS ILLEGALLY PUBLISHED WITHOUT MY PERMISSION and that is far from the truth…have you read the news these days??? I am so loved and blessed!!!

Rumors of a new album have been circulating for some time, with Forbes citing a previous Page Six rumor from August 2023 that the singer was working on a writers' camp and sourcing songs from “some big artists.” But based on what Spears herself says, fans will just have to keep waiting.
