Britney Spears did a spoken word performance of the iconic "I'm a bitch, I'm a mother..." song and she SLAYED
If you’d been performing the same basic stage show for three years, you’d probably want to change things up every now and then, right? Well, that seems to be the case for Britney Spears, who took an unexpected turn during a Las Vegas “Piece of Me” concert at Planet Hollywood this week.
Decked out in a sexy, strappy bra-and-underwear ensemble, Britney surprised her audience with a spoken word-style performance of the iconic chorus of “Bitch” by Meredith Brooks, that classic ’90s song you probably hear more often at karaoke these days than you do on the radio.

In September last year, Britney announced that she’d extended her residency at Planet Hollywood through 2017.
The show has been a phenomenal success and has allowed Britney to live a life with her two children that she’s dreamt of since she was 21. As she explained to Billboard last year, she once stayed at Celine Dion’s estate in Las Vegas during a tour in 2003 — Dion’s home during her residency at Caesar’s Palace — and she fell instantly in love with the idea of of living somewhere year-round instead of traveling constantly.
Said Britney, “I was actually jealous, like, ‘Oh, my gosh, she gets to be in one place all the time.’ Everything clicked. To have your children and your family and that way of life, it just makes sense to have everything in one place.”
We’re so happy to see Brit living this dream, and we’ll love you forever you keep up your Meredith Brooks schtick!
