Britney Spears has become a very busy lady in the lead-up to the March 29 release of Femme Fatale.
After rumors came out on Wednesday that Spears would make several appearances on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” the week her album drops, a press release posted on her website now confirms that and a few other engagements on Brit’s calendar.
The release also confirms that Spears will pre-tape her “Good Morning America” appearance on March 27, two days before it airs on the show. MTV will dedicate March 29 to the femme fatale herself for what is being dubbed a “Britney take-over” day on the network. Additionally, Spears will make an appearance on the Kids’ Choice Awards on April 2, though there is no word on whether she’ll be performing, presenting or just getting slimed.
Spears is currently rehearsing for her appearances and working on the video for her second single, “Till the World Ends.” It will be directed by Norwegian director and photographer Ray Kay, who has worked with Lady Gaga, the Backstreet Boys, Beyoncé and Justin Bieber. The video will be shot in L.A. No date has been set for the video’s premiere.
In recent weeks, Spears has been on several magazine covers (including Out and V magazine), and in interviews she has talked about wanting to try something new on the album.
“I think Femme Fatale speaks for itself,” Spears told V. “I worked really hard on it and spent almost two years recording it. I think it’s the best album I have ever made. There’s nothing to say. I’ll let the music speak for itself. … It’s definitely my edgiest and most mature sound yet.
“It’s a little bit of [an evolution and a revolution],” she continued. “There are songs on this album that don’t sound like anything else and are completely revolutionary, but I also believe this album expresses where I am today as a woman and is an evolution of who I am.”
