She’s already revealed that her new album is going to be very personal, and to go with that, Britney Spears has now shared its personal title — Britney Jean. The 31-year-old said that the reasoning dates all the way back to her roots in Louisiana, and is a nod to her family members.
“They always called me Britney Jean,” she explained. “It’s like a term of endearment. I just wanted to share that with my fans.” This album will be the “Work Bitch” singer’s eighth, and her first since Femme Fatale, which was released in March 2011.
Last month, Britney told Ryan Seacrest that her upcoming album will be her most personal, and will mostly be about her recent breakup with Jason Trawick. “After having a huge breakup this year, I had a lot to say in the studio, so it was really nice to have a therapy like that and to be able to share that with my fans.”
The album comes out on Dec. 3, and just a few weeks after that, the mom of two will begin a two-year residency in Las Vegas.
