It’s been an amazing year for Britney Spears and on Black Friday, Music Choice is awarding her with the Icon Award! HollywoodLife.com has the exclusive first look at her acceptance speech right here. Watch!
“This is such an honor to receive this award. It’s really beautiful, and I’ve really worked hard on this project and this really means a lot to me,” Britney Spears says in the acceptance speech for Music Choice’s Icon Award. “Thank you so much for enjoying my music!”
Britney, 34, has had a huge year! She covered V Magazine‘s 100the issue in March, right after revealing that she was working on her ninth album. She launched her own role-play gaming app titled, Britney Spears: American Dream in May. She hit the stage at the Billboard Awards later in the month, completely wowing everyone, and was honored with the Billboard Millennium Award. Then in July, she dropped “Make Me…” featuring G-Eazy, the first hit off her album, Glory. Of course during all of this, she’s also still been performing her Piece of Me Las Vegas residency three nights a week!
“I don’t really see it as a comeback,” Britney told the Today show backstage at the MTV VMAs, when asked about Glory. “I think I’ve never really left. I’ve always been here. So (it’s) just like . . . maybe a reinvention of myself and just a different time in my life — a really good, glorious time.” Well we’ve had a glorious time watching!
Britney’s award was part of Music Choice’s 100 countdown, a celebration of the fan favorites of 2016, which is set to air on Friday, Nov. 25. During the special, you can always expect to see Rihanna, Demi Lovato, Future, Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, and 2 Chainz as well as newcomers Zayn, Desiigner, Dej Loaf, Tory Lanez and iLoveMemphis.
