One of Britney Spears' songwriter partners has denied she said a track on new album 'Circus' is about the singer's much documented fling with paparazzo Adnan Ghalib. He, of course, was a central player in Britney's life for a short time during her much documented breakdown, and Us Weekly magazine quoted Spears collaborator Nicole Morier as saying (or at least implying) new track 'Mmm Papi' is based on the singer and photographer's relationship. The mag also quoted a 'source' as saying of the track: “It's a gift to him [Ghalib]. She is crazy for him”.
But lyricist Morier has denied she ever linked the song to Ghalib. She's told Perez Hilton: “I never said that to Us Weekly! The song is definitely not about Adnan and in the whole time I worked with her last spring and summer I never once saw that guy. We strictly wrote the song for fun. The 'Mmm Papi' part came out of 'Mmm Papa Luv U' and I came up with it because the track was a fun up beat track and we wanted to do something crazy like 'mmmpapamowow'”.
Morier adds that she doesn't want the press implying Spears still has some attachment to Ghalib and that whole mad time in her life, saying: “Please be kind to Britney and I and post this correction. She was oh so sweet and professional to work with, and I believe she's really gotten her life together”.
