Britney Spears Says She Will ‘Never Return to the Music Industry’

Britney Spears is slamming rumors of an upcoming album.

“Just so we’re clear most of the news is trash,” she wrote in a lengthy caption via Instagram on Wednesday (Jan. 3) alongside a photo of artist Guido Reni’s painting, Salome Bearing the Head of St. John the Baptist. “They keep saying I’m turning to random people to do a new album … I will never return to the music industry !!!”

Spears’ post comes following a Page Six and US Sun report that the pop superstar is working with Charli XCX and Julia Michaels to co-write a long-awaited 10th studio album. The singer’s last album was 2016’s Glory, though also teamed up with Elton John for 2021’s “Hold Me Closer.”

“When I write, I write for fun or I write for other people !!!” Spears continued in her post. “For those of you who have read my book, there’s loads that you don’t know about me … I’ve written over 20 songs for other people the past two years !!! I’m a ghostwriter and I honestly enjoy it that way !!! People are also saying MY BOOK WAS RELEASED WITHOUT MY APPROVAL ILLEGALLY and that’s far from the truth … have you read the news these days ??? I’m so LOVED and blessed !!!”
