Britney Spears says she ‘will never return’ to the music industry

Britney Spears wants the world to know she will “never return to the music industry,” despite rumours this week that the popstar was planning to record a new album.

On Wednesday, tabloid publication Page Six reported that Spears, 42, was gathering influential musicians, including singer Charli XCX and writer Julia Michaels, to create her first full-length album in over a decade. The outlet said the Princess of Pop’s latest project was only in its early days, and that Spears had yet to record any vocals.

Rolling Stone, also on Wednesday, released an article citing an anonymous source that said Spears’ management and music teams were “trying to get her excited” to record a much-awaited album.

As both reports were gaining traction online — and being celebrated by Spears’ dedicated fanbase — the Toxic singer took to social media to adamantly deny the claims.

“Just so we’re clear most of the news is trash,” Spears wrote on Instagram. “They keep saying I’m turning to random people to do a new album … I will never return to the music industry !!!”

Spears made the comment as part of a post that included a photo of the 17th century Guido Reni painting Salome Bearing the Head of St. John the Baptist.
