Britney Spears‘ Femme Fatale was a little bit of a letdown. The videos just weren’t what we’d hoped for and her live performances were oddly stiff. But BritBrit is heading on tour this summer and now that she has had more rehearsal time under her belt, perhaps she’ll redeem herself? Britney, at least, is super excited for the tour. In this video, which she posted on her website, she checks out the stage for the first time. “Yeah! Yeah,” she squeals. “I love it. Thank you!” I think it’s sweet how in awe she is here. And it does look pretty dope—especially with all that lightening imagery. Keep reading »
“I wish her the best — that goes without saying. We haven’t spoken in nine or 10 years … We were two birds of the same feather — small-town kids, doing the same thing. But then you become adults, and the way you were as kids doesn’t make any sense. I won’t speak on her, but at least for me, I was a totally different person. I just don’t think we were normal; there was nothing normal about our existence. We spent way too much time being the biggest thing for teenyboppers.”
– Justin Timberlake on his ill-fated romance with fellow teen pop star Britney Spears in the new issue of Vanity Fair. I believe there are two kinds of people in this world: people who hold out hope that someday fate shall bring Britney and Justin back together and people who just don’t give a crap. I am in the former camp and it makes me sad these two kids don’t even talk anymore. Sigh. I mean, honestly, they once wore fancy matching denim ensembles on the red carpet — that’s a connection that shouldn’t just be tossed away. [ONTD] Keep reading »
Remember when Britney Spears
used to perform at award shows as, like, a rule, because she was a huge pop star? Nowadays it seems like she’s trotted out of her holding pen to make random, half-assed appearances during other
stars’ award show performances as some sort of “comeback” statement. So, that makes her random, half-assed, minute-long cameo during Rihanna
‘s “S&M” performance at last night’s Billboard Music Awards
her, what, 8th comeback? I love Britney, don’t get me wrong — I will love her until I’m old and grey and cranky and think even classical music sounds like racket. But seriously, I wish Britney was let off her leash and given the opportunity to stand and perform
on her own, not just as a backup dancer in Rihanna’s sort of sad “good girl gone bad” fantasies.
Phew. Rant over. Last night’s big Billboard Music Award winners, after the jump… Keep reading »
Maybe it’s because I’m done with finals and I have nothing to worry about. Maybe it’s because all of my favorite TV shows are going on hiatus. Maybe it’s because I zoomed through my blogs too quickly this week, but I have to say, I’ve come to a sad realization.
Celebrity scandal is dead. Keep reading »
Guys, I’d like to come to the defense of Lindsay Lohan. No, not for stealing/”borrowing” that jewelry. And not for making the movie “I Know Who Killed Me,” either. No, I’d like to defend Lindsay for showing up to her first day of community service without a bra on. Because who among us hasn’t walked out of the house without a bra on and realized a half hour later that maybe going without was a bad idea? Happened to me the other day. I went to walk my dog and pick up some tacos for lunch wearing just a loose sweatshirt. I took a look at myself when I passed a reflective surface and, holy crap, I did not realize my tits so obviously jiggled. I felt almost naked. I crossed my arms and hurried home, sans tacos. So, I’ve been there, Linds. I stand with you in stupidly bra-less solidarity. And so do these 29 other sexy braless stars!
Ever wonder what would happen if Britney Spears took Adele to Da Club for a dance off? I have a theory. Britney would start dancing, natch, and Adele, in her proper English accent, would be, like, “Bitch, I ain’t no dancer, I’m a singer. I’m turning this into a sing off!” And then while Britney gyrated and sweated to the hot beats, Adele would sing her ass off, and the whole thing would look and sound something like this mash-up of Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep” and Britney’s “Till The World Ends.” I thought it was just in my fantasies, but apparently not. Thank you, Jarod Ripley, for making my pop music dreams come true. Keep reading »
“Skinny dipping. It would be a dress-up-like-Ke$ha-or-Britney party. I have a small, salt-water pool that has laser beams in it and a stereo so you can be under water listening to music. It’s really magical. I hope people are ready to come and take their clothes off.”
—Ke$ha describes her dream party to celebrate the release of Britney Spears‘ Femme Fatale, which contains several tunes Ke$ha penned like “Till the World Ends.” Hey, if people sleep over they can always brush their teeth with Jack Daniels in the morning. [People] Keep reading »
Let’s just call it “Slave 4 U 2011,” okay? Britney Spears’ apocalyptic video for “Until the World Ends” has arrived and it has almost the exact same vibe as her video for the 2001 hit
— gorgeous and sweaty people in ripped fishnets grind on each other in a warehouse, with Britney leading the charge, only this time, chaos is ensuing outside. Oh, and these days, Britney’s a little older, her abs aren’t exposed, and she dances primarily with her hands rather than her whole body. Whatever. I am a diehard Britney fan and this is one of my favorite tracks on the album because it reminds me of going to raves in San Francisco in the late-’90s. This video gives me a mad craving for orange juice. Win! Keep reading »
