In which the Femme Fatale flips off the press, gets felt up by a hot cop -- conveniently next to a 2012 Volkswagon Beetle (product placement!) -- gets all Gogo-from-Kill-Bill on a few paps on the street, and pays homage to MJ's "Thriller" at the end. Cute, but it ain't no "Last Friday Night."
Ah, April. A time for spring showers, overdosing on chocolate Easter eggs, and the calm before the summer movie storm at the box office. Here's what we're anticipating/obsessed with this month.
1. "Till The World Ends" Video Premiere - Britney runs for cover underneath the streets of Los Angeles during the 2012 Apocalypse (or presidential election) and works up a sweat dancing/bouncing with a bunch of Mad Max rejects:
2. Scream 4 - We were fortunate enough to attend a special screening of this highly anticipated fourquel two weeks ago, and we're excited to attend the Hollywood red-carpet premiere next week (look out for our interview with the cast - sneak peek below). Who will survive? Who will be unmasked? Be a good horror fan and visit your local multiplex on April 15 to find out.
3. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I on DVD & Blu-ray - Savor every on-screen moment with Harry, Hermoine and Ron before you bid that final farewell in July. We're stocking up on Kleenex as we write and sending out save-the-dates for the weekend-long marathon we're going to host. Yep, we plan on watching all seven films before Part II hits theaters.
4. Bossypants by Tina Fey - "Short, messy, and impossibly funny," says Amazon. "We want to go to there," says HIH.
5. Diddy Riese - For $1.50 you can make your own personalized ice cream cookie sandwich, and voila, you have the cheapest (and tastiest) dessert this side of Westwood Boulevard. Bring a buddy to wait in line with you...because there will be a line out the door.
The online teaser campaign for Britney's "Hold it Against Me" video is so ambitious, so OMG-you're-gonna-die intense, you'd think it was the best thing to happen to music videos since...Britney Spears.
We're a little over a week away from the debut, and with the way this thing is attempting to build up anticipation you'd also think it was some epic action flick coming out in the summer. Well, hopefully 'epic' is a word that can be used to describe it at least. After all, this is coming from Jonas Akerlund, the man who brought us Gaga's crazy "Telephone" opus last year.
From what we can tell from the images we've glimpsed thus far, there's some kind of media chamber filled with video images from Brit's past, a cool-looking wreath of microphones she'll sing into, and -- surprise, surprise -- a group of shirtless young men with ripped torsos. Ergo, it appears to be one of those concept videos - no narrative or story to go along with the coy lyrics of the song. Hmmm. Interesting.
For those of you jonesing for the ultimate Britney package, Britney: The Singles Collection will be released just in time for the holiday shopping season (Nov. 24). Promising to be bigger than that Greatest Hits compilation she released back in '05, this mega volume comes in two editions (but of course): One with a DVD and bonus tracks, the other listing every song the girl's put out since cooing "Baby One More Time" 10 years ago. And judging from the album cover above, everyone's favorite tabloid sensation has managed to evolve that come-hither look quite well...y'know, despite those years of crotch shots, head shavings, messy interviews, inevitable divorce and embarrassing custody battles.
It has become our American birthright to savor and obsess over the rise and fall of celebrities. It's become one helluva national pastime. Who we build up and idolize eventually will become who we badmouth and kick off that shiny pedestal. After all, what goes up must come down.
So it's no wonder why Kira Coplin and Julianne Kaye's shamelessly addictive novel, Pop Tart, is being gobbled up by everyone and anyone who's ever quoted TMZ as their trusted source in news.
The book, which came out a little over a month ago, chronicles the crazysexycool life of a hugely popular pop star through the eyes of her makeup artist. Backstabbing. Scandals. Meltdowns...Hmmm...could all of this drama have been inspired by someone with a name that sounds a lot like Whitney Schmears?
Split personality jokes aside, here it is folks...Britney's much-anticipated video for the controversial third single off Circus, "If U Seek Amy." The premise? Well, let's just say it's what you would get if you were to attend an orgy on Wisteria Lane:
The music bloggers have spoken, and thanks to my hero over at Ali's Blog, we have the top 10 vids of the year (read: not "best"). With most of these having been released during the second half of '08 (what, no Natasha Bedingfield?), it goes to show what kind of attention span the kiddies have nowadays. Still, I think it's a pretty hot list (gotta love a chorus line of jilted brides).
Here's the seven-and-a-half megamix to help you flashback...Enjoy:
Dodger Stadium went bananas when JT came out to perform "4 Minutes," his hit duet with Madge.
From MSNBC: As expected, Madonna brought out the big guns for her concert at Los Angeles’ Dodger Stadium on Thursday night, as Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake joined the Material Girl on stage, although at different times.
Wearing a subtle white blouse and black baggy pants, Spears joined Madonna on stage to sing the last verse of the track “Human Nature,” much to the delight of the packed house, which included some serious star power, including Jennifer Lopez, Ryan Seacrest, Heidi Klum, Drew Barrymore, Fergie and Donald Sutherland.
At the end of the song, Madonna proclaimed, “I’m not your bitch!” She then pointed to Britney, adding, “She’s not your bitch,” drawing raucous applause from the crowd.
During the concert, Madonna also took the opportunity to offer a bit of political insight, in light of the controversy surrounding California’s Proposition 8, the state's ban on gay marriage which was passed this week: “If we can elect an African-American as president, we can support gay marriage! Defeat Prop 8! We will not give up!” she told the audience.
