It’s heeeere! Time for Britney Spears‘ video for ‘Perfume’. It’s an interesting one, guys – we’ve got BritBrit lying in a bed in lacy lingerie trying to look innocent, BritBrit cuddling up to a blonde hunk, BritBrit singing about wanting to “mark [her] territory” by putting her scent all over this man to take back to this other woman he’s with now that they’ve broken up… you get the hint.
This song is kind of a hot mess – basically Brit is the other woman and doesn’t seem to think this is a problem. And yet this is the song she personally relates to? What’s going on in this girl’s life? SMH.
What do you think of ‘Perfume’?

Britney Spears‘ video for ‘Perfume’ isn’t actually coming out yet, but it is finished and in order to drum up excitement, she’s released a sneak peek for it.
Let’s keep it short but sweet: What do you guys think?

Sure, big sister Britney gets most of the attention, but Jamie Lynn Spears did have a burgeoning career at one point… until she got pregnant at 16 and left the limelight (and Zoey 101) for mom life. Now that she’s older and so is her baby, she’s engaged and life is coming together, it’s time to focus on her career again. With that in mind, she’s released a single called ‘How Could I Want More’ and oh snap, it’s actually good! It’s a bit Taylor Swift-ish – that was my first thought – but I think it could do well for her. And guess what – she can actually sing!
The song was inspired by her fiancé, apparently. I’m into it, but I’m not sure why she’s styled so old for the video. She’s only in her early 20s, so why is she dressed like she’s 20 years older? Ah, well, can’t win ‘em all.

Christina Aguilera and A Great Big World (stupid name) performed their single, ‘Say Something’ on The Voice a couple of weeks ago and it really freaked me out because I swear I’ve heard this song somewhere a LONG time ago and I can’t figure out where. In a movie? A TV show? I don’t really listen to the radio besides Radio 1, so I’m not sure where it could have been, but anyway, it’s an okay song, even if it is a little dramatic/cut out for a Nicholas Sparks movie.
It’s nice seeing Christina doing something that’s a bit more scaled back and isn’t all over the vocal charts. As she often coaches her contestants on The Voice, sometimes less is more and you don’t need be running scales every five seconds to prove that you’re a good singer. Now, if you don’t mind, I’m going to watch The Notebook.

If there are two names you don’t expect to see in the same sentence, they would be Wiz Khalifa and Adele. But here we are, putting those names together, because apparently they’ve collaborated for Wiz’s new album. This all apparently started because Adele complimented Wiz’s wife, Amber Rose, at this year’s Grammys. I’m not sure what that has to do with anything, but let’s just go with it.
Here’s what he told something called SKEE LIVE:
“She ran up on Amber. She was like ‘Amber! Amber!’ and told her how beautiful she looked.”
“Her people contacted some of my people when they found out we were working on the album and sent some ideas through, so we were able to knock some things out.”
Well, this should be interesting. I keep thinking of that Childish Gambino remix of ‘Rolling in the Deep’, which is making me think this might end up being really good, actually! I wish Adele would get work done on her OWN album, though. We’ve been waiting for that shit!

If you loved Katy Perry‘s video for ‘Roar’, then you’re going to love the 20-minute behind-the-scenes clip she just released about what went into making it! To be honest, I don’t think I’ve ever watched the full video (y’all know music videos ain’t my thing) so I don’t really have any interest in this, despite my love for Katy.
The video was filmed at the Arboretum in Los Angeles and features a monkey named Ripley. Fun!
“We like to make big visuals and basically re-remind people that we like to paint with broad strokes… we like to have fun. There’s a wonderful message in this song about… standing up for yourself. Sometimes if you have a serious video and a serious song it can be a little tough. We [wanted] to have a lighthearted visual to go with the song.”
Kewl, Katy. We’re with it. Watch the ‘making of’ video below:
