Britney Spears celebrates holidays with new squeeze, assures us she’s alive

With the Grim Reaper ramping up his end-of-the-year visits, I’m happy to report that you won’t be seeing Britney Spears’ name pop up during any of the 2016 “In Memoriam” videos that are already starting to flood your Facebook timeline.

On Monday morning, the Sony Music Twitter account was hacked, reportedly by the same group who recently targeted Mark Zuckerberg, Marvel and Netflix. The hackers sent out two tweets, which were later deleted, leading fans to believe that the singer was dead. The tweets in question read, “RIP @britneyspears #RIPBritney 1981-2016″ and “Britney spears is dead by accident! We will tell you more soon #RIPBritney.” A separate tweet relaying Britney’s alleged demise was also posted on Bob Dylan’s Twitter feed, which really should have tipped the public off that this was a hoax. I can only imagine Bob is more of a Cher fan.

Brit’s manager, Adam Leber, reassured fans that the tweets were untrue, telling CNN that ”Britney is fine and well. There have been a few Internet clowns over the years who have made similar claims about her death, but never from the official Sony Music Twitter account.” The label later confirmed that their social media account had been hacked, issuing an apology which said, “Sony Music Entertainment’s Twitter account was compromised. This has been rectified. Sony Music apologizes to Britney Spears and her fans for any confusion.”

Phew. Suck it, Mr. Reaper. Britney herself took to her Instagram earlier this week to pay her respects to the late, great George Michael. In the short, heartfelt post, Britney recognized his “positive effect” on the world and added, “He was a brilliant artist, talented songwriter, inspiring performer, and did amazing things for the LGBTQ community. He will be missed, but his kind soul will never be forgotten.”

So, not only is Britney alive, she’s living. She recently made her relationship with Persian model/fitness trainer/hunk Sam Asghari “Instagram official” with a cute video of the pair nestled in bed and sending Christmas wishes to her fans. If I snuggled up with that at Christmas time, I’d have more than visions of sugar plums dancing in my head. He’s quite a looker, even with a reindeer face. Yowza.

Britney met Sam, who also appeared in the video for Fifth Harmony’s “Work from Home,” when the two worked together on her video for the single “Slumber Party”. They have been spotted out on a few dates over the past few weeks. They do make a good looking couple. I’m glad Brit’s found love. She deserves it, she’s done a bang-up job raising her two boys. In fact, the 35-year-old Mom posted pics of sons Sean, 11 and Jayden, 10, showing off their Christmas finest (well, plaid shirts) in their holiday bedazzled home.

What a couple of cuties…and boy, do I feel old now. Glad Santa was good to you and your family, Brit. Hope you have a great 2017!

    Her sons are adorable! I can’t believe how much they’ve grown, and they seem close which is awesome. But, yeah, feeling old now!

  2. Jenni says:

    I look at her and it makes me feel old. I remember when she was the hottest sh#t in the business. Now it is just sad. She got stuck visually and musically in the mid ’00. I think performers like her who were huge at some point should also dissapear at some point.

  3. Rico Shew says:

    Refreshing to see that their age difference wasn’t highlighted in the headline or mentioned in the article.

    • Megan says:

      Yes, but if she was 22 dating a 35-year-old it would have been noted. Not sure why there is a double standard for women dating younger men.

  4. Joni says:

    That picture tho…..

  5. Jade says:

    Wow soon to be teenagers of a teen idol. Still love you Brit Brit.

  6. Ankhel says:

    Bang up job raising her boys? I believe she did the best she could, but I think Federline and nannies had a lot to do with it. From what I’ve heard she hardly saw them at times, when she was ill and/or heavily medicated. Also, you’d think someone would get some proper dental care for them?

    • Cally says:

      Wow, that’s uncharitable. These are two children and you are critiquing their looks. britney is the star, let’s keep the comments about her instead of two children who never asked to be in the public eye. If only everyone was as perfect as you, huh?

  7. QQ says:

    FAM… What in God’s Name was that header Picture.. She looks bizarre… It wasn’t mych better when it loaded in the article… Head to Toe “What?!”

    Also, we both know Britney Jean Spears went nowhere near that statement about George Michael

  8. Odette says:

    Adore Brit. Adore. (But I feel like gossiping, sooo…..)

    I feel some sort of way about her outfits. Not because they’re risque or anything, but because they feel so….90s? (Is it 90s?) Combined with the girly hair, it feels…weird.

    Or am I just feeling some sort of way about the “tacky” quotient?

    It’s all just so…much.

    • QQ says:

      Honestly my eyes just .. Im having all kinds of cognitive dissonance.. IT IS SO MUCH but yeah everything from her hair/color/makeup/her horrendous casual shoe platform wedge thing/the Baby blue and the bpowder pink obsession/ her costumes, nothing has at all change since 98-2003 ANY of her NOW pics could be from that period of time Britney to be honest

  9. CItyHeat says:

    Have always had a soft spot for BritBrit. Was so happy to see the successful comeback, recognizing she continues under conservatorship. Her dads supervision of her health and her career is a blessing to her…..yet……

    All these deaths remind me how time marches on. Her dad can’t (shouldn’t?) continue in this role indefinitely . At some point, something needs to evolve to a next level.

    I hope it’s with Brits ability to assume more control with checks and balances in place.

    But maybe a wardrobe and hair makeover is a good first step.

    Hello 2017.

  10. Hazel says:

    ‘I can only imagine Bob is more of a Cher fan’. Good one!😉

  11. TJ says:

    She is ridiculously cute!

  12. PoliteTia says:

    Hats off to Kevin Federline. He is doing an amazing job raising their children. Papa Spears must dote over his grandchildren.

  13. L84Tea says:

    Okay, I just have to say it. Brit’s style and the way she looks with it is starting to remind me of the woman who played Ellie Maye Clampet on The Beverly Hillbillies and how she was still walking around dressed like Ellie Maye even in her 70’s. I know Brit’s look has always been a little zaney, but she’s starting to look really ridiculous and like she’s holding onto the year 2000 a little too tightly.

    • Odette says:

      Right!? Confession: Sick in bed, I’ve become obsessed with that top picture. Can’t stop staring at it. It’s a little bit…creepy (in the fun way). Like someone took a 15-year-old picture, and then did a seriously impressive job of Photoshop’ing adult Brit’s face onto it.

      • QQ says:

        I Myself have come back like 6 times to really REALLY take it in Odette… But L84Tea Thanks for zeroing in on that… that’s exactly it… or even Charo , always out as Charo

      • Odette says:

        LOL @QQ! Right. It’s like one of those optical illusion pics you can’t quit!

        And it’s not like she looks bad, per say, it’s just the whole package is…distinct in its temporal overtones. It’s like an homage to Contempo Casual / The Limited, circa 1994.

    • Tourmaline says:

      Agree that picture is umm… Striking

  14. Lambda says:

    Nice arms.

  15. what's inside says:

    Youth and beauty — anything to hang on….Vegas baby. P.S. her new squeeze is gorgeous, but it will never work in the longterm. Agnan anyone?
