I am an unapologetic Britney Spears superfan, so I welcome every musical endeavor of hers with open arms, even if they include collaborations with lame dorks like Will.i.am from the Black Eyed Peas. Brit and Will.i.am debuted the video for their single “Scream & Shout” last night, and I have so many feelings about it. First of all, it’s a great, fun, if completely soulless club song. Second, Britney Spears sing-talks with a posh British accent, why? Third, she looks amaaaaazing. Fourth, less Will.i.am, more Britney please. It’s no “Toxic,” but I’m happy to have Britney flexing her pop muscle again.
Kelis has had one crazy year. First, she got pregnant with then-husband Nas‘ baby. Then, she filed for divorce and had to fight him for spousal support. After that, she gave birth with her mother and sister by her side. We’re pretty sure she’s looking forward to the new possibilities that come with a new year. “2010 is around the corner and I can’t wait to put out new music and spend time with real music fans on tour again,” she said in a released statement. And the stars are already lining up for her. Keep reading »
Since posting about the alleged physical altercation between Perez Hilton (real name: Mario Lavandeira) and Will.i.am and/or a member of his “entourage” yesterday, I’ve been thinking about some of the details. Supposedly, the fight started when Fergie, also of the Black Eyed Peas, confronted Perez about being mean to her on his site. This led to Will.i.am, along with the band’s tour manager, Polo Molina, calling Perez out later that night at a club, and someone — now believed to be Molina, who turned himself in to the police — punching Perez in the face. The fight escalated from verbal to physical when — according to Lavandeira himself — Perez called Will.i.am a “f*ggot.”

This weekend, at the after-party following the Much Music Awards in Toronto, Perez Hilton tweeted that he had been physically assaulted by Will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas. And then Tila Tequila was all, “Perez is lying!” Will.i.am then responded on his Twitter and posted this video. Apparently whatever occurred started when Fergie got sad because Perez was making fun of her. According to Perez, the authorities are now involved. He posted his own response video. What a bizarro story. [via Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
I totally did a double-take when I saw Bryan Greenberg in the Obama/Will.I.Am “Yes, We Can” video (watch it, after the jump). While I may have missed him originally on One Tree Hill and October Road, he fully caught my attention as Uma Thurman’s way-younger beau in Prime. And he was so effing adorable trying to impress her that he impressed me into full celebrity crush mode. Look for him in the upcoming Bride Wars, also starring Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway, the shooting of which has captured by the paparazzi and been in every tabloid for the last few months. Just wish they had caught a few shots of Bryan…
