It’s easy to see why Spears chose this particular song. Aside from her penchant for 90s female country-pop, the lyrics address those who like to talk without knowing the full story, and kicking up a bit of deliberate controversy just to witness their inevitable reaction. No doubt Brit was throwing some serious shade when she remarked that holding a mic with no backing music felt “illegal” before stating “I’m a Southern girl, I keep it real, I just wanna make sure I give you motherf*ckers something to talk about”. QUEEN.

Something To Talk About originally peaked at #5 on Billboard, back in 1991:

Is this a special one-off performance? Is Britney planning on incorporating more live performances into Piece Of Me’s final leg? Should we expect a Bonnie Raitt covers album? Is it safe to speculate about a Superbowl performance? Who knows?
