For the first time since October 2007, Britney hasn’t got any releases in the UK top 75 charts, as “Blackout,” “Piece Of Me” and “Break The Ice” all leave the albums and singles chart this week. This is only the second week in its run since release that “Blackout” will not have been in the top 75, having sold over around 250,000 copies in the UK, including around 120,000 this year alone.
According to sources in the US, ‘Radar’ is already being played on several radio stations! The song is rumoured to become the fourth release from the album ‘Blackout’.
According to E! Online, Britney’s perfume brand was the biggest selling in 2007 among all the other celebrity perfumes.
The scents are reported to have earned a total of $84 million for Elizabeth Arden in the last year alone!
Good news BRITNEY fans! “The Insider” has just confirmed that the singer turned special guest star will be back to reprise her role as Abby on “How I Met Your Mother” for their May 12 episode on CBS. Production begins today.
The synopsis of the episode, “Everything Must Go,” was released by 20th Century Fox: “Barney and Abby realize that they have one thing in common, their mutual hatred of Ted.
