Katy Perry: The self-crowned “Teenage Dream” says she hopes to release her third album by summer. Promising it will be a “black box” of who she is, she hinted to MTV it will be “real dark” given her divorce from comic Russell Brand.
Britney Spears: Now that she’s free from ”The X-Factor” bench, Britney has been chatting up her eighth studio album online, tweeting “Working hard. Collaborating with some new inspiring producers. Really focused on my music right now.” Lots of names have been linked to the pop princess but so far only will.i.am and hip-hop producer Hit-Boy have been confirmed as collaborators.
