Britney Spears is “honoured and humbled” to be working on her next television gig: as co-host for the one hour tribute special, We Will Always Love You: A Grammy Salute to Whitney Houston

The pop star announced the news to her 21 million Twitter followers on Wednesday afternoon adding, “[Houston]’ll always be 1 of my heroes!” The tribute to Houston will include performances from Céline Dion, Usher, Yolanda Adams, CeCe Winans and Jennifer Hudson.  

While Spears is not set to perform, she will be presenting segments and iconic Houston footage alongside actors Halle Berry, Taraji P. Henson and rapper/actor LL Cool J. 

This isn’t the only project on Spears’ agenda. 

Beyond her seat at the judge’s table on The X-Factor, the pop star also recently teased the ad campaign for her latest fragrance, Fantasy Twist. Shot by photographer Ellen Von Unwerth, Spears appears as a dominatrix and Cleopatra in the ad. She is also promoting the latest edition of Twister, Twister Dance (in a $20,000 limited edition sports bra no less). —Portia Baladad
