Britney Spears, I love you, I really do, but it’s not for your singing. I love you for your songs, your silliness, your sheer Britneyness. While I don’t think people give you enough credit in the singing department (and oh God this autotuned mess didn’t help) I would never call you a singer over a performer or pop star, you know? Yeah, you get it.
Brit’s got a new album coming out and her producer, William Orbit, tweeted about it to fans. When one fan suggested a stripped down song on the album, Orbit agreed but maaaaaybe took it a little too far. He replied (via Stereoboard.com),
@britneyspears never needed that auto tune thing . . . just know how to make singers sing great
Uh, okay. For the curious, here’s what Britney sounds like completely a cappella. It’s her singing “happy birthday” to L.A. Reid on The X Factor. Skip to 11 seconds.
Again, not terrible, but not…noteworthy. (PUNNED IT.)
Our little Brit Brit has a heart of gold and is always doing nice things for the less fortunate. She’s already given a homeless guy $100 from the ATM, but now she’s upped the ante and thrown a few hundred at a homeless family she spotted outside a Walmart in Filmore, California over the 4th of July weekend. LOVE HER!
She and boyfriend David Lucado were driving by when they saw the family holding up a “HELP” sign and she gave him a few hundred bucks to get out and give to them. Aw, Britney. Say what you will about her shitty music, but homegirl has a heart of gold!
I still think she needs to drop David, though. That dude has gold digger written all over him, and I’m not feelin’ it.
Miley Cyrus‘ new video for “We Can’t Stop” is full of “is this changing my image yet?” sights, including the dance move all the kids are suddenly doing: “twerking.” Here’s Miley doing it (center, in white) surrounded by lots of black women, for scenery street cred. (There’s a debate going on right now fueled by Jezebel about whether or not Miley is appropriating “rachet culture” and is “accessorizing with black people” but that’s not something I’m getting into here.)
Anyway the point here is that Britney Spears is showing her approval for Miley’s new video and moves, as evidenced in this tweet:
Loving your new video for #WeCantStop @MileyCyrus! Maybe you can teach me how to twerk sometime LOL ;) xo
“LOL”, a winkey-faced emoticon, and an “xo”? Someone’s really serious here!
As for Miley twitter updates, she’s about to make some paparazzo’s life a living hell by tweeting earlier,
Britney Spears has a smurfy new song for the new Smurfs movie that’s kind of a big load of smurf. But she may not have dropped this load of smurf all by herself. Lots of people have pointed out that Ms. Spears’ song, “Ooh La La” sounds a lot like Madonna‘s song “Superstar”, from her 2012 album MDNA. People are probably only noticing this just now because no one bought Madonna’s album, let’s be real. Madonna wrote and produced “Superstar”, along with ardy “Indigo” Muanza and Michael Malih.
“Ooh La La” came out in June of this year for the Smurfs 2 soundtrack. This load of smurf took 7 people to write (Bonnie McKee, J. Kash, Lola Blanc, Fransisca Hall, Lukasz Gottwald, Henry Walter, Joshua Coleman) and 3 to produce (Dr. Luke, Cirkut, Ammo) and in the end, it does sound pretty similar to Madonna’s “Superstar”.
Bikini season is upon us. ‘Tis the time of year where we get to see “BEST AND WORST BIKINI BODS OF 2013″ splashed all over celeb magazines, along with hints of “HERE ARE 100 PEOPLE HOTTER THAN YOU ARE, F-CK YOU!” So let’s get it over with and take the wind out of our sails with this post of celebrities in bikinis and get to the inevitable who looks fat and who doesn’t and let’s cry into our pizza. Our delicious f-cking pizza. I think all these ladies look great, although I doubt some of their bikini choices, simply because some of these are ugly.
Britney Spears is headed to Las Vegas, and I told y’all. She talked about how psyched she is about it in Shape magazine (source: I read Shape magazine on airplanes) but people are having doubts that she can handle such a major commitment. From Metro:
The Oops!… I Did It Again star is reportedly preparing for a string of shows at Planet Hollywood Resort and at a casino in Sin City.
But concerns are growing from within Brit’s camp that she won’t be able to handle the pressures of delivering a knock out show day after day.
‘There is little chance that she can actually do this,’ a source close to the star told Fox News’ FOX411 team.
‘The stress of a daily public appearance and the physical nature of a show could overwhelm her for sure.’
Friends and family would have reason to be anxious for Spears after she suffered a very public breakdown in 2008 and her mental health could crumble again.
‘As the show comes closer, she may start to fall apart. It’s definitely a concern,’ the source added.
First of all, no one even MENTIONED the delicious buffet in Planet Hollywood, and that’s definitely a major concern for me. But that’s neither here nor there. I can understand why “Brit’s camp” would be concerned about these shows, but Brit’s been under conservatorship for quite some time now and there’s no way she could have signed off on this on her own, so clearly someone thinks she’s ready. It’s a huge commitment ut I think it will be the best thing for her. She’ll have a regular job, everything scheduled, no surprises, a huge support team, and she’ll be doing what she loves to do most.
Positive thoughts, people. I really, really want to see Britney in Vegas because the buffet!!!
