Julia Michaels talks about working with Britney

Julia Michaels has spoken to ‘V’ Magazine about working with Britney, as part of the promotion for her new single, “Issues.”

“Britney is phenomenal. I don’t think people realize how talented she is. She would come in, we would play some chords, and she’d sing the best pop melodies, because they’re so ingrained in her brain at this point, and come up with the concept, sit down with us and make sure the lyrics sounded perfect to the concept, and she’d be like, ‘Cool, I’m gonna go!’ And I was like, ‘Cool! See you later, Britney!’ – she’s the best!”

Larry Rudolph confirms Piece of Me is ending

Britney Spears is ending her Piece of Me residency at Axis Theater at Planet Hollywood on 31st December, as her contract with Caesars Entertainment expires, her manager Larry Rudolph said today.

Rudolph said her next venue “could be conceivably anywhere, we could have it at the needle on the top of the Stratosphere, and do the bungee jump afterward.”

“We are done with this show, and our next move is undecided. We are still talking with Caesars Entertainment and other interested parties in Las Vegas.”

But that does not mean Brit is finished in Vegas; other venues, including The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, Park Theater and The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel are all in play.

“Anything is possible. We have made zero decisions. We expect a lot of interest from all parties. Britney basically sells out every show, and she loves Las Vegas, she loves performing in Vegas, and Vegas is a possibility going forward.

“She might tour, she might work on a new album. It’s too early to talk specifics about anything.”

Israel’s Labour Party postpones election due to Britney concert

The Labour Party Israel has rescheduled one of their party elections because it clashes with Britney’s concert in Tel Aviv. Britney is performing in Hayarkon Park, for the first time ever in Israel, on 3rd July; the event has been deemed so important that the Labour Party, which was due to vote for its new leader on that day, has ended up changing the date.

A party spokesperson told the Times of Israel that, because of the concert, there had been ‘a difficulty in recruiting security guards’ for the election and that moving the date of the primaries would ‘make it easier for people to reach polling stations’. Their statement said: ‘The election date was delayed by one day due to the fact that there is a major event at Hayarkon Park on July 3, 2017.’
