Welcome back to another week of Planet Britney, where we summarise all things Britney related from last week into one easy and simple post, perfect for those of you have just simply do not have the time to catch up on Britney news every single day.
It has been just over a month that Brit showcased her new revisited ‘Piece Of Me’ Vegas show and left the world in absolute awe! Everyone has been talking about the show and if you have not yet had the chance to see it – WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? Get Booking peeps!
A month later and Britney is still making headline news, journo’s are absolutely digging the show!
The revamp is just brilliant and Britney is on top form! Besides for the show being a roaring success, the costumes are just to die for, complementing Britney’s super toned body and completely matches the Vegas vibe. Soyon An gets full credit as Britney’s new costume designer and this week, we got to know a little more about this talented artist.
Britney Spears seems to reaffirm her living legend status on a semi-daily basis — whether that means posting a Googled photo of corn on the cob to her Instagram, nonchalantly picking up abstract painting as a hobby, or dancing about in her bikini, proving her body hasn’t aged a day since “…Baby One More Time.” So, of course, when the singer decided to totally revamp her sexy Las Vegas show “Britney: Piece of Me,” she wasn’t going to do the new costumes halfway.
Britney’s stylist for the performance, Soyon An, has worked with a number of big name talents such as Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, Nick Jonas, and Katy Perry, and now she’s bringing her masterful understanding of pop star apparel to bear on a number of new, custom-made pieces for the musical superstar. First on the docket? Showing off that aforementioned killer bod. “There is a lot more skin showing in these costumes,” An told People exclusively via email. “We are also using more bodysuits than the previous iteration with a lot more stones and crystals …We wanted to create whole new worlds within the show for some of the new sections while giving new life to the sections that would remain intact from the previous version of the show.”
As to the reason behind this major change? “Britney wanted to take the costumes to the next level,” An says. “She looks better than ever and her body is in incredible shape. That means hotter, sexier costumes showing more leg, more midriff, more cleavage. The costumes on the new and improved show are the sexiest she’s worn.” One example: The green camo bodysuit with matching cape she wears, entitled “Dark Angel,” created by designer Nicolas Jebran, who tells PeopleStyle that “anything Britney wears looks amazing, so naturally it was easy to design with her inspirations and visions in mind. Being as creative as she is, we went back and fourth and came up with a gorgeous military look that opens the show.”
‘Piece Of Me’ is a force to be reckoned with! Don’t believe us? Well, we will let the box office figures do the talking. Britney’s show has yet again topped the charts…

Whilst we are on the topic of world domination, Britney’s billion dollar perfume empire was also a talking point this week:
We all know that perfume by Britney Spears is hugely successful, and with a bottle of Britney Fantasy selling every 22 seconds in the UK, the savvy businesswoman, pop icon and mum of two knows what notes we’re all going to love.
Maui Fantasy Britney Spears is her latest limited-edition launch and her 19th perfume! Yes, that’s right – Britney has blazed her way through the perfume world, winning awards and being bestsellers for over 10 years.
So what’s the inspiration behind the latest perfume launch from Britney Spears? It turns out that Maui in Hawaii is her favourite holiday destination. ‘Whenever I have a chance to relax and spend time with my family, we escape to Hawaii. Maui is one of my favourite islands,’ says Britney. Here, Britney chats to us about what’s inspired her new perfume launch…
Oh, it is good to be a Britney stan…

Britney’s Instagram account has been the number 1 talking point of the last year, mainly because of how real and close to home her account really is. Unlike other celebrities who photo shop their pics and carefully select what makes the cut, Britney just posts what she likes whenever she likes. Let’s tale a look at this weeks highlights:

Every week the posts get more and more personal and we can totally relate! Long live Instagramney!
Just recently, Britney told V magazine that B9 was still in the works and about 80% of the album is complete. As for a time frame on how long the other 20% will take, we will just have to wait and see… So when we found out that more songwriters were creeping out the wood works this week, we were not surprised..
Ladies and Gentlemen, this week we welcome Carla Marie Albert to the B9 crew! Carla revealed this epic news in a recent interview with Mirror.com.
Britney Spears is working on new music with Beyonce’s hit songwriter Carla Marie Williams.
Speaking at her Girls I Rate gala dinner in London, on International Womens’ Day , inspirational Carla tells 3am: “Recently I’ve been working with Britney, which has been great.”
Interesting choice! Looking back at all the people involved in B9 – this may just be an extremely different sound for the Queen Of Pop… Artsy Fartsy is looking more and more likely by the day…
Carla also revealed that she has been working with Beyonce on her new album, could this mean a possible duo? It would not be completely reaching… Beyonce did after all visit Brit recently, to watch her slay the ‘Piece Of Me’ show, so you never know what might be going on behind closed doors..
Let’s have a look at what sound we should be expecting from Carla..
Can B9 be released already – our little hearts cannot take this wait any longer… That is all for this week y’all! We will leave you with this ‘If U Seek Amy,’ clip! It would be rude not to, as the video did reach it’s 7th Birthday this week!!
We off to find Amy… See you all next week!
