Britney Spears gets mobile game

Britney Spears is launching a mobile game.

The 'Womanizer' hitmaker is following in the footsteps of reality TV star Kim Kardashian West and is working with games developer Glu Mobile on her own app.

The company's chairman, Niccolo de Masi confirmed: "I am thrilled to add Grammy Award-winning legend Britney Spears to Glu's growing list of partners, as we continue to expand our celebrity gaming platform.

"We anticipate the title resonating tremendously with Ms Spears's nearly 90 million multi-generational social followers around the world."

The news comes after Katy Perry, as well as Kendall and Kylie Jenner announced their plans to launch their own mobile games in a bid to mimic the success of 'Kim Kardashian: Hollywood', which earned $1.6 million in its first five days of release.

The news comes just days after the chart-topping star - who unveiled her new single with Iggy Azalea, 'Pretty Girls', yesterday (03.05.15) - injured her ankle while performing on stage in Las Vegas.

Following the accident, the mother-of-two insisted she was "ok" but was later forced to postpone two shows as a result of the injury.

She wrote on Twitter: "Breaks my heart to share this news. After hurting my ankle last night my doctor has advised me not to perform this weekend #Heartbroken

"Your kind words mean everything to me! I'm rescheduling this weekend's shows and will let ya'll know when we have the new dates. xoxo (sic)."
