Sam Lutfi Claims He’s Trying To “Help” Amanda Bynes, Her Parents Deny His Involvement

Sam Lutfi Claims He's Trying To "Help" Amanda Bynes, Her Parents Deny His Involvement

You remember Sam Lutfi don’t you? Back during Britney Spears’ head-shaving days, Lutfi swooped in to become the pop star’s “manager” following her estrangement from her family, digging in his claws during her darker hours under the guise of “helping her.” Spears’ loved ones claimed he was a Svengali-like figure who took over Britney’s life, giving her pills, calling the paparazzi during opportune moments, and even moving into her house. Ever since Britney got her life back together and reunited with her parents, Lutfi has been kept out of the picture, including by restraining order. (Check out a long list of claims made by Britney’s mother Lynne in her restraining order petition — it’s disturbing.) Since then, he has worked with Courtney Love, and now he’s claiming to be a friend of Amanda Bynes, desperate to help her in her hour of need. Are you noticing a trend? Keep reading »

Britney Spears Without Auto-Tune Sounds Exactly Like You Would Expect [UPDATE]

Gird Your Eardrums

UPDATE, 3p.m.: Bwah-ha-ha, someone else grabbed it. Here it is on Daily Motion. Quick, watch it before this gets taken down, too.

UPDATE, 2:45p.m.:  We regret to you inform you YouTube has taken this audio clip down, citing a copyright issue. Too bad. Trust us, it was terrible.  

I always knew that Britney Spears was held together with eyelash glue and rhinestones, but the extent to which her music is made consumable for the public has been artfully kept under wraps. Now the audio of her song “Alien” without the cosmetic enhancements of auto-tune has been released and it’s clear just how many little elves have been working behind the scenes. You’d get booted off “American Idol” right quick if you sang this badly! Nevertheless, veteran producer William Orbit gallantly took to Facebook to defend Brit, claiming the audio was simply a vocal warmup. He added, “Whomever put this on the internet must have done so in a spirit of unkindness, but it can in no way detract from the fact that Britney is and always will be beyond Stellar! She is magnificent! And that’s that.” Auto-tune or not, we have to agree with him! [YouTube; Facebook]

Postmodern Jukebox Takes Britney Spears’ “Womanizer” Back To The 1940s

Postmodern Jukebox Takes Britney Spears' "Womanizer" Back To The 1940s
Britney Never Sounded So ... Sultry

On the rare occasion I decide to give a sex partner a lap dance, Britney Spears’ “Womanizer” is my usual song of choice. This Postmodern Jukebox cover — done in a 1940s torch style — slows things down a bit, but has the potential to inspire some sweet new booty-shaking moves. Noted! (Also, way to continue to fucking kill it with the covers, Postmodern Jukebox. So awesome.)

Guy Pastes Himself Into Britney Spears’ “Work B**ch” Video, Awesomeness Ensues

Guy Inserts Himself Into Britney Spears' "Work Bitch" Video
Go Call The Police! Go Call The Gov'nah!

Ladies and gentlemen, meet your new role model, Gal Volinez. Gal decided that Britney Spears’ iconic “Work B**ch” music video could use a little less Britney and a little more … him. So he recreated all of Britney’s trademark writhing and neck-snapping dance moves, showed a little midriff, and pasted his performance right over the top of the video. The result is strangely compelling, and way more erotic than the original. Sorry, Brit. [YouTube]

Lily Allen’s “Our Time” Music Video Reenacts The Time Lindsay, Britney & Paris All Hung Out

It's A Former It Girl Trifecta!

Once upon a time, there lived three wild, crazy, barely-to-moderately talented entertainers who ran in the same circle but did not often hang out together, either because of jealousy, competition and, some say, bits of unrequited affection. Then one day, all three of these starlets were photographed in a car together and the universe practically exploded considering all the possible outcomes of this new and powerful trifecta. But alas, it was not meant to be, as nothing particularly special resulted from that packed front seat and the three went their separate ways, with none of them churning out anything of particular achievement since. Why am I telling you this story? Oh, because that photograph, the one of the three starlets (Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears and Paris Hilton, obviously), is so bizarrely infamous that Lily Allen has used it in her video for the song “Our Time,” only she plays all three herself. Watch above! [Chart Rigger]
