Cancel your life: Britney Spears' new single won't drop for several months.

A story by Robin Leach from the Las Vegas Sun last month claimed the legendary pop star would debut her new song "Make Me" this Friday then perform it live at the T-Mobile arena during the opening of the Billboard Music Awards awards show on Sunday. The story picked up major traction when Britney herself confirmed she would perform a medley of hits at the event, leaving fans to wonder if she'd include the single at the end as a surprise.

An update from the same outlet claims those plans are no more. Leach shared the bad news Tuesday evening:

"I’m reliably told that technical production difficulties outside Brit and her management’s control have caused a delay in the scheduled release of the video and single until later this summer," he said.

BUT WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?

“There’s no point in Britney previewing it so far in advance if we don’t even have a new release date yet,” said an insider. "She is like us truly saddened that matters outside our hands have set back the hoped-for schedule."

“We’re told that it’ll now be later in the summer, but we don’t even know exactly when yet until production hiccups are resolved.”

PRODUCTION HICCUPS LIKE WHAT?

Looks like we're just going to have to sit and play the Britney Spears: American Dream app instead...
