It’s almost time for the blast-off!
Late last month, news dropped that the 40-year-old queen of pop and the classic rock legend and activist had a huge surprise up their sleeves. Spears and Sir. Elton John had been in the recording studio putting a brand-new spin on one of John’s most beloved songs.
The duo had been creating magic in a California-based recording studio on a remix of “Tiny Dancer,” which had originally been released on John’s 1971 LP, “Madman Across The Water.”
The opening track on the album had also been given a new lease on life when it was memorably used in Cameron Crowe’s autobiographical love letter to his life in the music business, the 2000 film “Almost Famous.”

Alongside black text on a simplistic white background, the post features emojis of a rocket and a rose.
John’s post comes after a busy news-related weekend for Spears. Her ex-husband and father of her two sons, Kevin Federline, opened up in a recent interview with the Daily Mail, alleging Spears hadn’t seen their two teenaged sons in a while for a variety of reasons, one being her frequent Instagram posts that tend to be on the NSFW side.
Spears’ new husband, Sam Asghari, debunked Federline’s claims on social media over the weekend.
“There is no validity to his statement regarding the kids distancing themselves, and it is irresponsible to make that statement publicly,” he wrote in a statement via his Instagram stories.
