Info Leaked About Britney Spears' New Album

An internal Jive Records memo that contains information about Britney Spears' upcoming album has been leaked, according to Rolling Stone.

The memo stated that Britney's album will be released on March 15. It also revealed collaborations with Dr. Luke and Max Martin.

The majority of the information in the memo was in regards to promotional strategies that will be used to market the record, which include promoting an "LGBT/lifestyle campaign" and a "major TV event."

There were also details about the new single "Hold It Against Me," including plans to release a music video for the song, which is no surprise. Apparently the video will be a "sexy, edgy dance piece." Isn't that too obvious to even be put in the memo?

What I don't understand is how a memo could have so much important information yet not include the name of the album anywhere in there. Isn't that considered to be important information too?
