Britney Spears had quite the busy week.

After wrapping up the North American leg of her tour with two concerts in Las Vegas over the weekend, the singer debuted her new single, “3,” on radio station Z100 Tuesday morning.

But that wasn’t enough excitement for her: On Wednesday, Spears purchased a pet parakeet.
