Prerogative is her first unisex scent

Britney Spears is a veteran in the perfume industry—with a casual 23 perfumes under her belt, to be exact—and she’s not slowing down anytime soon. So how does an accomplished perfumer step up her game after, pretty much, doing it all? By creating her very first gender-neutral perfume.

While the pop icon has focused on releasing women’s scents in the past, Prerogative, named after her 2004 cover of Bobby Brown’s “My Prerogative,” is unisex. On Monday, Spears took to her Instagram to release a teaser video, featuring her dancing in black PVC lingerie no less:

Britney Spears on Instagram: “Prerogative. A fragrance for all. 📹 #MyPrerogative”

Encased in a black-and-magenta bottle, Prerogative is described as having top notes of “energetic pink pepper,” “juicy red goji berries,” and apricot nectar. Other base notes include red calla lily, espresso cream, and saffron cream. “A fragrance with no boundaries, Britney’s new fragrance was created for the woman or man who defies inhibitions and social limitations. This unique scent fuels the confidence and determination to be whoever you want to be,” a press release reads.

Even though Spears is not the first celebrity to explore gender-neutral perfumes, her fans are praising the star for being more inclusive. Spears’ Prerogative perfume comes in three sizes, ranging from $32 to $52, and a body mist for $9.99. You can snag the scent at Walmart this month at Kohl's beginning in August, in stores and online.

Delevingne shared why they chose now

Last week, Cara Delevingne and Ashley Benson officially confirmed the rumor that they're dating, with Delevingne posting an Instagram video of the two of them kissing. Now, in a new interview, she revealed why they confirmed the rumors. Basically, it was in celebration of Pride.

In the interview with E! News at the TrevorLIVE Gala, Delevingne was asked why the pair chose this moment to take their relationship public, and she answered: "Because it is Pride, it's been 50 years since Stonewall happened, and I don't know... It's been just about our one year anniversary so, why not?"

Why not, indeed? Delevingne also said that the kissing video was "just a little something," which makes sense. After all, the couple were recently spotted lugging around a kinky sex bench, so some simple kissing must feel pretty elementary.

At the Gala, Delevingne shouted out Benson during her speech too, though not by name. "I also have another very special woman in this room to thank and you know who you are," she said. "She's one of the people who help me love myself when I needed it most and I really needed it. She showed me what real love is and how to accept it, which is a lot harder than I thought." I'm swooning.

"I don't regret it at all. I mean I'm a man, and as a man, you do real things."

In 2017, Atlanta-based artist iLoveMakonnen (or just Makonnen) had already experienced exhilarating career highs and disappointing lows. Drake had hopped on a remix of his viral hit "Tuesday," and then signed him to his OVO Sound label in 2014. Hits like "I Don't Sell Molly No More" and "Look at Wrist" on his first album, I Love Makonnen, put him on track to be the next best thing in rap. Makonnen was part of a class of rappers and producers who were expanding the trap genre to broader audiences. But problems with OVO led to a delay in a follow-up album, and so he parted ways with the label and, later, announced a short-lived retirement from music. Then in January 2017, Makonnen tweeted that he was gay.
