Therefore, labels like Evil, Good, dangerous and others are assigned or given to anyone or any group that looks, thinks and talks different.

“It’s very exciting,” the superstar told E! News June 2.”I’ve been working on this project for a year and a half now, almost two years so it really means a lot to me. It’s my baby.” Amen to that, as we’ve been in a Britney drought ever since Britney Jean dropped waaaaay back in Nov. 2013. We knew she’d been recording new songs for awhile now, so it’s great to know that her ninth studio album has finally come together!
