Britney & Her Comeback Album Go To The Birds

Britney & Her Comeback Album Go To The Birds

What does Britney need? Another living thing to take care of, obviously! She was out, Allie in tow (as if that needs to be said anymore), buying herself a pet bird at Petco yesterday afternoon. At least she looks happy? Unfortunately, things aren't sounding so happy with her supposed comeback record. Despite hearing yesterday that it contained a few sure hits, Britney's on-again-off-again publicist Leslie Sloane Zelnick is now saying the album has been delayed until 2008 at the earliest. She even issued this convoluted statement to Life & Style:


“I put her on hiatus,” Zelnik says. “Brit’s album is pushed until ’08. If she has no album, there’s no reason to do anything. I’m representing her in theory right now. I said that since the album is pushed back until ’08, let’s go on hiatus until we have a campaign to do.”

A music-industry insider says the album is delayed because Britney’s struggling creatively. "I'm surprised the album wasn't pushed back to ’09 — everything's up in the air with the album right now," the insider says. "Jive [Records, Brit's label] hated the songs Britney was coming up with, except for a few. The executives are not happy. And she didn't want to listen to anyone. Everything was a problem for her. They wanted her to work with certain people, and she wanted the opposite."

While Zelnick's statement is a little confusing, it doesn't sound like things are going well at the recording studio for Britney. Hopefully she won't scrap the idea all together -- we've been waiting too long to give up on her comeback just yet!
