Katy Perry says "Passenger" on Britney Jean is her favorite song that she gave away

Recommended Posts

Katy Perry reveals "Passenger," a song that landed on Britney Spears' eighth studio album, Britney Jean, was her favorite song that she wrote but gave to another singer. :cheese:

"Passenger" was initially intended for her 3rd studio album, 2013's Prism.

"I loved when Britney did 'Passenger,' which is a song I wrote with Sia and Diplo a long time ago... I liked that song. It's a song about control and letting go... which is a constant message I have to tell myself all the time because I'm a control freak, and in these times I'm just spiraling."  

She also mentions Kelly Clarkson's "I Do Not Hookup" and a Selena Gomez track.

I don't know if this is too conspiracy but I wonder if Britney refused to try / do the vocals on Passenger because of the lyrics and subject matter of the song. Clearly britney loves songs about control and in terms of the c-ship, it's a slap in the face.

It's the only Britney song I don't even have in my library. I hate it so much. I wish Katy did just keep it.

I love Katy's version, it definitely suited her. I too struggle with "Britney"'s version, as good as it is, due to the fact it isn't her. :parisok:

Also, I don't care if Katy apologizes for the mental health remarks as I personally don't see them as digs at Britney at all - I see them as her relating her own hidden struggles. And if we're being real for a second, Britney probably never actually heard about said remarks and even if she did, I doubt she gives a ****. :cheese:

Not surprised the ultimate clown gave up the worst song Britney has ever recorded :haha: I wish she had kept it for herself and Britney would’ve had an even more immaculate discography :mcry:

"Passenger" is my least favorite song that Britney has ever released
