I have done this for the last 13 years.” “I’m not going to put on heavy makeup and try to be on stage again and not get the real deal with remixes of my songs over the years and put my new music on my shows for my fans.

Earlier this month, Spears’ longtime manager, Larry Rudolph, reportedly announced his resignation in a letter to his patrons, citing the pop icon’s intention to “officially retire” from music.
Rudolph told his father and Montgomery that he was resigning because he had become “conscious” of Brittany’s unhappiness and performing under conservatism.
The letter was published by Deadline and The Wrap. In it, Rudolph said that Britney Spears told her in 2019 that she intended to take an “indefinite work hiatus”, and now that she has reiterated that desire, she no longer needs a manager.
In January 2019, Spears abruptly suspended her Las Vegas residence due to her father’s health issues. He hasn’t performed since.
Last year, she released a deluxe version of her 2016 album, “Glory,” which included a new single featuring the Backstreet Boys.
