As we sit here alone up in our rooms, thinking ’bout the times that we’ve been though (REFERENCE), The Holy Spearit has just provided us all with a glimmer of hope to get through the day.

A few hours ago, Godney took a moment away from her hourly household scattering of Christmas-scented potpourri to hop on Twitter and announce that Billboard readers chose her upcoming album — which is due out by the end of the year — as the Most Anticipated Event of 2013. OH, RLY? People are excited about new Britney music? In related news, the Smurfs are blue.

But then, she went on to deliver an even holier blessing.


We already know she’s in the studio with William Orbit, and that a Spearitual Ray Of Light is imminent. We know that she’s recorded a song for her boys. (Which boys? It’s anyone’s guess.) We also know that has been promising us a personal record ever since the Brit Army/Spears Navy/Godney Air Force began spamming his mentions with demands, death threats and YouTube links to “Unusual You.”

But now that Queen B is calling it personal? Her most personal? Well, it must be true.

The Living Legend is coming for all kinds of wigs, chart records, and maybe even a long overdue Pop Grammy Award with Album 8, tentatively titled Blackout 2.0: It Gets Urbaner And Also More Spearitual (We’re Just Having Lots Of Lunches Right Now). Bye 21! What’s a Red, even?

Personalney. Rawney. Intimateney. Bring on the MTV Unplugged sessions.
