Britney Spears Wrote An Open Letter — No, It's Not About Miley Cyrus

At this point in Britney Spears' career, 2007 is just a little blip on her radar. It's no secret that she's been back — Circus and Femme Fatale more than made up for whatever party foul Blackout was. But, with "Work B*tch," her poppy club banger ode to Rosie the Riveter, Spears is crowning herself queen.
In her 15 years as one of pop's biggest icons, Spears has put out seven chart-topping LPs. December's Britney Jean, her eighth full-length album, promises to be one of her biggest. Now that the album art has been released, we have our second glimpse into the new era of Spears' oeuvre. While similar to Femme Fatale's art, Spear's signature in neon lights signals a more personal direction than her previous. It is, after all, her second self-titled album (2001's Britney being the first).
To commemorate the release, Spears penned a letter to her fans describing what to expect, who she worked with on the album, and her joy in sharing it with all of us. "I want to show you the different sides of Britney Spears," she writes. "I am a performer. I am a mom. I am funny. I am your friend! I am Britney Jean." Love it, girl! December 3 can't come soon enough. And, hey, at least she didn't end it with the usual "It's Britney b*tch." It truly is a new era.
