Spears described the Vegas show as having a “theater meets club” vibe, and fans will definitely be pleased to know that she’s incorporating her brand-new material — such as her new single Work B**** — into the show. Pics: Britney, Madonna Rihanna — Most Memorable Stage Styles “I’m definitely going to do the greatest hits, but I’m gonna have to put some of my new material into it just to keep it fresh,” she dished. But is Spears, who suffered a psychological breakdown in 2008, both physically and mentally ready for such a grueling schedule? “I’m definitely ready. I have training for sometimes five hours a day,” she said. During the exclusive GMA interview with Sam Champion, Spears also expressed her support for Miley Cyrus’ controversial MTV Video Music Awards performance. No stranger to MTV VMAs controversy herself — having famously performed Oops! … I Did It Again in a nude jumpsuit and memorably kissing Madonna onstage — she clearly sympathized with the outspoken 20-year-old. “I think anytime you do a performance that’s that memorable, you’re going to have criticism,” she mused. “I think she’s doing her thing. She’s being herself, so, I give props to her.” Video: ET’s Power List — Britney Spears Spears was surprised Tuesday morning by more than 1,000 of her fans who had gathered in the Mojave desert for her highly anticipated appearance. The fans held signs showing a picture of Spears, as the singer circled above in a helicopter. “I really enjoy what I do.
In it, she croons about ones desire for a hot body, a Lamborghini, and a big mansion and to get that, you better work, bitch. In fact, she uses the B-term no less than 15 times throughout the song. We counted. This isnt the first time weve heard Spears sing out the term that once was used to describe female canines, but is now used mostly as a derogatory jab at her own gender. Almost six years ago to the day, amid a highly-publicized meltdown, Spears released Gimme More with the catchy opening Its Britney Bitch. In November, she released the song Scream and Shout with will.i.am and played homage to that hallmarked phrase with the lyrics you are now rocking with will.i.am and Britney, bitch. And in her 2009 song Lace and Leather, Spears told us straight up, first verse: French fingertips, Red Lips/Bitch is dangerous. And while it has been a long time since Spears was the sweet smiling, wide-eyed Disney-darling turned teen pop star, she is a mom of two boys and still courts young fans, which has some critics saying the B-word thing is both inappropriate and getting a little long in the tooth. “Using curse words in pop songs doesn’t show off artistic talent, it shows lack of creativity. Its sad that so many female recording artists think in order to stay relevant they must degrade themselves, entertainment publicist Angie Meyer-Olszewski told FOX411s Pop Tarts column. And as a parent, it becomes more difficult to set a proper example for our kids, when mainstream musicians are portraying images and lyrics that contradict traditional teachings of right from wrong.” However, very little has been said critically of the title word in the mainstream media since Spears dropped the song. According to New York-based PR guru Elissa Buchter, that’s because the once shocking B-word really doesnt have much of a sting these days. The word doesn’t hold quite the stigma that it used to and has become a part of the mainstream; younger women even use it as a term of endearment to describe their friends now. That could signify the decline of American culture or perhaps it’s just a product of changing times, she said. Britney and her team are savvy in capitalizing on that shift to create a song her demo will respond to, however her song would probably be a hit even without the controversy Miley Cyrus is courting in order to build her brand. Despite her own personal struggles, Britney has a huge built-in audience who will devour any catchy dance song she releases, controversy or not. But as veteran PR guru Roger Neal pointed out, eyebrow-raising lyrics isnt a necessity for hitting the big time. It does not have to be like that. Look at Donny Osmond, in his day he was bigger than Miley and Britney together, he said. Today, hes hot all over again and never had to push boundaries.
