The Word: Why Britney Spears didn’t like the ‘Breaking Bad’ finale

Here’s a weird thing: Britney Spears is a huge “Breaking Bad” fan. However, after seeing the finale, she has a few notes for Vince Gilligan et al. Spoilers ahead for the end of “Breaking Bad,” and for Britney Spears’ opinion on it.

“I didn’t like it at all. I didn’t think [main character Walter White] should have died,” she told Z100. “Maybe they’ll do another episode where the ambulance, like, comes and revives him or something.” Uh… maybe. Or maybe Britney is just the most bizarrely optimistic “Breaking Bad” viewer of all time. I’m pretty surprised that she’s into it at all.

Maybe that’s the real twist ending: Britney Spears is a fan of “Breaking Bad.”

Brit also addressed her odd choice to have a British accent in her latest single, “Work B—ch”: “I just feel like British people have more personality,” she explained.

Faking a British accent when you’re from Mississippi is certainly a sign of a distinctive personality, yes.

Britney Spears’ new single, “Work B—ch,” came out unexpectedly in September, after a leak the day before prompted the singer to release the song earlier than planned.

“Disheartening that one bad apple had to spoil our release for the entire fan community but nonetheless, we hope you love #WORKBxxCH,” her manager Adam Leber tweeted, before announcing the song’s official release a few hours later.
