Brittney Spears has accomplished a lot during the last few decades of her career. From killing it on The All-New Mickey Mouse Club to making the Billboard charts numerous times, she’s done it all… or so it seemed. Recently, the reigning Princess of Pop has added another achievement to her résumé: disrupting a country’s major election. Yep, you read that right: it's months before she’s even scheduled to go on tour, and she’s somehow already caused one of Israel’s political parties to reschedule their election.

According to Refinery29, Britney will be singing an outdoor concert in Tel Aviv on July 3. Unfortunately, Israel’s Labor Party had originally scheduled its primary election on the same day, at a venue close to Britney's. If these two events were to be held simultaneously, this would cause major safety issues. As a result, the election has been moved to July 4.
Liron Zach, a spokesman for the Labor Party told CNN, “We couldn’t hire enough security for the election because of the Britney Spears concert on July 3. There would also be a lot of traffic and roadblocks that would make it hard for the vote to go ahead.”
The spokesperson explained to Times of Israel that the decision to postpone the election will “make it easier for people to reach polling stations.” I guess "Sometimes” you just have to reschedule for the greater good.
