Prepare yourselves, Britney Spears fans: She’s about to release a brand-new single called “Hold It Against Me” in just over a week. Sharon Dastur, program director for NYC’s Z100 radio, has heard the new single, and she loves it.
“It’s produced by Dr. Luke and Max Martin, and the beat that they give her is really unique compared to other artists — this infectious bass beat beneath the song,” Dastur says in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, on newsstands tomorrow. “Plus, the hook is just amazing.”
Dastur tells us that “Hold It Against Me” will premiere on Jan. 7, next Friday. It will presumably precede Spears’ seventh studio album, about which little is known aside from a March release date.
Excited yet? Spears doing her thing over an “infectious bass beat” from pop maestros Dr. Luke and Max Martin sounds pretty enticing, no? Let us know if you’re looking forward to hearing “Hold It Against Me.”

Britney Spears is the latest mega pop star to be getting a "Glee"-full makeover.
"We are writing a Britney Spears episode," Ryan Murphy, creator of the hit musical comedy TV show, told celebrity news show Entertainment Tonight.
It was not clear whether Spears, 28, the biggest pop music phenomenon of the early 2000s with hits like "Oops!...I Did It Again" and "Piece of Me", would also appear in the episode planned for the new season which starts in the fall.
"Glee", which won 19 Emmy nominations on Thursday, based two episodes earlier this year on the music of Madonna and Lady Gaga but neither of the singers appeared on the show.
"Glee", about a struggling high school show choir that sings cover versions of pop, Broadway and hip-hop tunes, was one of the most-talked about TV programs of the last year.
It produced three hit albums of music while also sending sales soaring for the original artists whose music is featured, and its young stars recently completed a U.S. concert tour.
Producers however have denied reports that Spanish movie star Javier Bardem, who won an Oscar in 2008 for his role in "No Country for Old Men", would appear as a guest in the new season.
"No, javierbardemjenniferanistonjuliarobertsbradpittelvis katieholmestomcruiseandu2 are not appearing in season 2. But wouldn't it be fun...." Dante Di Loreto, an executive producer for "Glee", said in a Twitter message earlier this week.

Helping celebrate their sons' latest milestone, Britney Spears and Kevin Federline put on a united front at their boys' preschool graduation.
The pop star, who was joined by parents Jamie and Lynne Spears, and her ex-husband arrived separately at a San Fernando Valley school Thursday, but met up briefly. Preston, 4, and Jayden, 3, were later treated to McDonald's Happy Meals after the ceremony, says a source.
Spears, 28, "was very excited about her boys' graduation and she dressed them up for the festive occasion," the source says.
The exes, who tied the knot in 2004, split in late 2006 before finalizing their divorce a year later. A custody settlement reached in 2008 gave Federline, 32, sole custody of the kids while Spears, who is under the conservatorship of her father, was allowed several weekly visits.

Here’s Britney Spears out and about in her hot little pink eighties prostitute dress the other day. I like it, but I have a thing for prostitutes from all decades. Of course, it’s Britney Spears so it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that her wonky nippers decided to make an appearance. Those things are pretty amazing. Like cows lying down when it’s about to rain, I’m pretty sure her nippers can sense when there are cameras around and pop to attention. Well done. By the way, her dad is not around to impose the must-wear-bra rule. We are glad for that.
When it comes to the world of high-fashion and A-list celebrities, photography duo Markus Klinko and Indrani have snapped almost every fabulous face over the span of their careers.
But among all the stars they've worked with, from Jennifer Lopez to Naomi Campbell, the star they think is the hottest woman alive, just might surprise you.
Yup – it is Britney Spears, y’all.
“Britney would be the hottest woman I have ever photographed, she was super sexy. At the time, she was just unbelievable – so natural and so sweet,” Klinko gushed to Pop Tarts, referring to a large-scale, garden-themed shoot they did with the pop princess at the beginning of 2004. “Britney was just so personable and she had a lot of the ideas for the images. It was one of the loveliest experiences.”
While this was years before Brit married and divorced Kevin Federline, shaved her head and lost custody of her kids – it seems the seeds to that eventual breakdown were already starting to sprout.
“Britney was very vulnerable. She had a big entourage but they didn’t really pay attention to her – she felt like she was on her own,” added Indrani. “She worked day and night singing and dancing for a video she was working on, and she was working up to the minute that she left for our shoot. That was 11 at night and we worked until 3 in the morning. I was amazed, I just couldn’t understand how someone could keep up that pace.”
And perhaps Spears was looking for a way out too – just a few days later, the then 22-year-old hit up Sin City and got hitched to her childhood pal, Jason Alexander, in what turned out to be a marriage that lasted just 55 hours.
But this certainly isn’t the only troubled Tinseltowner Klinko and Indrani have photographed. The professional partners (and formerly ‘personal’ partners) have captured Lindsay Lohan several times over the years, and most recently in a new campaign for her leggings line. Viewers can even see all the drama go down in an upcoming episode of the new Bravo docu-series “Double Exposure,” premiering on Tuesday at 10 p.m. EDT, which takes much more than just a simple snapshot of the trials and tribulations they deal with in their celebrity-driven business.
“Lindsay is extremely talented and very charismatic and I think she is very, very intelligent. Although some of her choices have maybe questionable in the past, I think that’s part of the process of becoming a great artist is going through a lot of challenges. You can’t become great without experiencing challenges,” Indrani said.

Britney Spears relationship with Jason Trawick is about to unravel!
According to Star, Jason has been carrying on a long-term affair with a brunette behind the singer's back! The other woman is actress and author Jessica Steindorff who met Jason in 2007.
"Jason has been cheating on Britney with Jessica from the beginning of their relationship," a close friend of Jessica's reveals to Star. "He has deceived Britney with his lies for too long, and somebody needs to tell her the truth, even if it hurts."
"He was always telling Jessica that he had broken up with Britney so it was OK that they were sleeping together," the friend tells Star.
Star posted secret emails exchanged between Jason and Jessica, including one from December in which Jason wrote: “Miss you. Best u left. Just wanted a kiss.”

This is quite unbelievable and ridiculous, but Britney Spears has been accused of sexually harassing her minder.
Former policeman Fernando Flores, 29, has quit his job as the pop superstar's head bodyguard after the mother-of-two allegedly paraded around naked in front of him on numerous occasions.
Flores is now reportedly considering a sexual harassment lawsuit against the 'Toxic' singer.
A friend of the father-of-two said: "She was always giving him the come on and he felt if he didn't reciprocate he could lose his job. He finally handed in his notice last week and is considering legal action.
"Working for Britney is tough. She's a nightmare to deal with and her emotions are totally out of control. She runs round the house naked and yelling at staff."
The situation had increasingly become "unbearable" for Flores, but he was finally motivated to quit when he was blamed by Britney's father Jamie for the singer going out without any underwear.
The pal explained: "Unfortunately for Fernando, she took a liking to him, so he was under more pressure than most. He wanted to be a good security guard and look after her but the situation became unbearable.
"It was embarrassing to tell her to put on underwear. Some guys would do it but others were too ashamed."

New York, June 2 – Pop star Britney Spears had a public fight with her boyfriend Jason Trawick in Los Angeles.
‘Britney was rude to the waitress and then started arguing with Jason, saying she’d had enough. He was trying to calm her down but she wasn’t in the mood,’ nypost.com reported quoting a source.
‘They had been sitting down for dinner but just over 30 minutes into the meal, Britney decided she wanted to leave,’ the source added.
The ‘Toxic’ hitmaker was fuming as she left the hotel while Trawick was trying to mellow her down.
‘She headed out of a back door of the hotel, with Jason following and still trying to calm her down. She looked furious,’ the source said.

I thought that when Britney Spears‘ dad decided to get a court order or some crap like that to force the popstar to wear a bra when she left the house she had finally sorted out her boob situation. Apparently I was mistaken because here she is looking a little sloppy while she refuels with a foot long. That sounded dirty, but you know what I mean. Anyhow, I actually like sloppy breasts, that’s why I normally hit the clubs around last call and clean up some of the mess. It’s not pretty, but it’s effective.

Britney Spears is having serious personal issues again, reports in the media are saying. Just recently in Disneyland on Mother’s Day, the singer got into an argument with her boyfriend, Jason Trawick, and had an outburst in which she locked herself in the bathroom and hacked at her hair, InTouch says in its most recent print issue (story via here).
According to the tabloid, which is quoting unnamed insiders that could very well be on of Brit’s bodyguards or nannies (after all, this wouldn’t be the first time than someone from her entourage is selling her to the media), Britney has been having more and more of these episodes. The last time she argued with Jason, she went into the bathroom and cut her hair and then tried to flush it down the toilet, claims InTouch.
“When they checked into the Disneyland Hotel, it looked like Britney and Jason had just had an argument. With the boys in another room with their nannies, Britney locked herself into her hotel room. ‘She started out crying hysterically and refused to go out,’ an insider shares. ‘Jason and the boys were left sitting with the nanny all day. They never got to meet Mickey Mouse.’ That night, things went from bad to worse when Britney ordered scissors sent to her room and began cutting off her hair. The insider says: ‘When the cleaners came to the room, so much hair had been flushed down the toilet, it was blocked’,” the tab writes.
And there’s more, apparently. “Sadly, strange scenes like that one are becoming more and more typical. On May 1, she paid a local tattoo artist $5,000 to ink a red crown on her butt, a pal shares, to show ‘she’s the ruler of her life.’ It hasn’t helped. Britney’s relationship with Jason is more tumultuous than ever, and even her dad has been away lately. ‘Jamie [her father] has spent the last two weeks in Louisiana and only checks in with Britney by phone… he is basically relying on her staff to look after her.’ Feeling unloved, Britney has begun acting out. ‘If things keep going the way they are, she is headed for something very bad’,” InTouch further says.
This is not the first time in recent weeks that such reports make it to the press. In April, for instance, after she was photographed sitting in a car and crying her eyes out, paparazzi were saying that she had started to be increasingly violent towards Jason, believing he was somehow responsible for things going downwards in her life again, as we also reported at the time.
