Los Angeles, CA (BANG) – Britney Spears is apparently a huge fan of exotic animals. First, there was the “I’m A Slave 4 U” period where the pop princess was seen with a huge python wrapped around her neck at the 2001 MTV Video Music Awards show, but now the blonde has developed a fond liking to tigers. Britney recently wrote a new song inspired by the powerful animal and included a snippet of it on her website.
The song opens with the sound of a tiger growling and Britney sighing.
The lyrics seemingly criticize her husband as Britney sings, “Be wary of others, the ones closest to you, the poison they feed you and the voodoo that they do. You’ll find that in rebellion your body stops breathing, they’re not believing what they’re seeing.”
The website, www.britneyspears.com, was updated around the same time that Britney went into hospital to give birth to her second son, Sutton Pierce. The revamped site is still under construction but the old pictures of fairies have been removed and the home page now features the song and a picture of a tiger’s face, with Britney’s own face superimposed over the top of it.
A source said, “She’s got a thing for tigers now. It’s because they’re a mysterious and powerful animals and incorporate a spirit of free-mindedness.”
Britney’s spokesperson has refused to reveal whether the unusual song will be included in her new album, only saying, “There’s no immediate plan for a new album, but Britney is in and out of the studio regularly.”
