A New Release From Britney Spears! September 23, 2009

Filed under: Britney Spears,Music News — Alexandra @ 4:12 pm

Yayayayayay! It’s no shock that I adore Britney Spears, so this new news is very exciting for me (and all Britney fans!)

BritBrit will be releasing The Singles Collection this November in honor of her 10th anniversary on the music scene, AND it will include a brand new single, “3” – which was produced by Max Martin, the genius behind “Baby One More Time.” The single will hit radio stations September 29th.

I know. OMG.

The Singles Collection will come in two versions:

  • The ultimate fan box set version of The Singles Collection will include all 29 singles (complete with a b-side or remix) packaged in its own sleeve with original artwork. There will also be a DVD with all of Brit’s videos in chronological order and a booklet featuring the pop star’s iconic photos and trivia on each track.
  • The other is a standard version that will include 17 of her greatest hits, including the new single “3”

Can’t wait!!!!! I know which version I’ll be purchasing!

Drama With Britney’s New Single! January 20, 2009

Music Britney Spears

Word on the street is that Britney Spears & team have to re-name her single “If You Seek Amy” because it says a not-so-nice-thing. Say the title very slowly.

Radio stations have said that they would ban the single if the name of the song isn’t changed.

So what have they decided on?…  “If You See Amy”

Because that makes sense. Hell, in the song she sings, “All of the boys and all of the girls are begging to if you seek amy.” Like people won’t catch on.

This is beyond brilliant. And she should do acoustic performances more often so she can showcase how talented she really is.

Check out her acoustic performance of “Poker Face” above.

Direct a Video For Usher! December 16, 2008

Filed under: Just Because,Music News,Usher — Alexandra @ 4:54 pm


Aw, this makes me happy – Usher being all nice and friendly.

The new dad wants YOU, well, teenagers, to direct a music video for his new album, which is due out next year.

“It gives me another way to give back, inspire young people and also reinvent music videos,” he said in a statement.

If you’re between the ages of 13-18, then apply at Got-Noise.com. But hurry, you only have until January 31. Then, in March, 20 finalists will be flown to Los Angeles where they’ll have a week to work in two teams directly with their star to conceptualize and create their videos. Both videos will debut in April, and fans will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite.

Winners of the contest, which is sponsored by Body by Milk, will receive Usher concert tickets, Apple laptops and editing software.

Not too shabby, huh?


Scarlett Jo Wants to Record Second Album!

Filed under: Music News,Scarlett Johansson — Alexandra @ 3:37 pm


I love Scarlett Johansson as much as the next person, but I don’t know if I could take another album of her monotone voice.

Ms. Jo told MTV News that she’d like to record another album, only this time, she’d like to record her own material and not a cover album. Her last album was a cover of Tom Waits songs. BUT, if she were to record another album of covers, she’d choose Leonard Cohen.

However, this will have to wait, as she’s focusing on her new life as a wife and as an actress.

Good idea.
