She was at one point undoubtedly the sexiest pop star in the world. Her last album, Femme Fatale, was a critically praised piece of pop perfection. And for her next move, the highly anticipated new song from legendary recording artist Britney Spears can be found… on the soundtrack for The Smurfs 2?
Britney tweeted today that her new song “Ooh La La” is for her “boys” ― meaning her sons ― and thus it’s at least kind of sweet that Britney recorded something with them in mind. (On the other hand, the title “Ooh La La” doesn’t exactly sound like the sort of thing you normally aim at a preteen male, but we’ll reserve judgment until we hear it.)
Aside from that angle, though, this news is a bit of a letdown. Fans who grew up with Britney are grown-ups now, and what sentient adult wants to be caught dead listening to the Smurfs 2 soundtrack? After waiting a full two years for new music from Britney (aside from that little ditty with will.i.am), don’t we deserve better?
