Britney Spears', "Ciricus"
The Lyrics:
There's only two types of people out there.....
The correct english grammar is 'There 'are' only two types of people out there' If something is plural, you're meant to use 'are' For eg: my foot is sore or my feet are sore. Not my feet is sore....

Britney Spears', "Unusual You"
The Lyrics:
There’s so many things, when I was someone else
I've heard this many times, it should be "There ARE so many things" and in this song it should be "There WERE so many things, because she's talking a bout the past, not only it should be plural, but also past.
