Britney Spears is making a comeback; at least that is what producer Rodney Jerkins is predicting. Jerkins, who is working on Spears’ new album, slated for 2009, told Rap-Up TV, that he and the “Gimme More” singer are working on tracks that are “very dance-y, really up-tempo, in the clubs, aggressive, catchy and real hook-friendly.”
Jerkins revealed, “I’m trying some new things [with Spears]. I’ve always worked with Britney, and I love working with her. I’m trying to reinvent her and reinvent myself with her project.”
Regarding the pop star?s reported chaotic personal life,
Young Jeezy took on John McCain recently, drilling the presidential hopeful about his plans to help those in need when they appeared together on Saturday Night Live. He called the Senator a “fraud” and described their tense encounter:
?I told [John McCain] the ?hood was f**ked up, and he was like, ?How you doing?? (It was) real talk. They know entertainers, so they shake your hand (and say), ?I?m your friend.? But my mama is about to have surgery that I gotta pay for out of my pocket because she can?t get insurance. ?I don?t really feel McCain. It ain?t just because Barack is black; he can make change. Just like Bush equals recession, Barack equals progression. I really feel that.?
Amy Winehouse‘s adoring husband Blake Civil-Fielder is allegedly in the middle of a sexy letter-writing romance with a heroin-addicted lady jailbird. Blakey and Melissa Goldstone have been writing to each other for over seven months, and promises her “the best snog of our lives” and insinuates that Amy not only cheated on him (they are in a open relationship now!) but may be into having a threesome.
Red Sox fans who love Madonna are going to find themselves in quite a pickle this morning, after word is leaking that the legendary singer is possibly shacking up with Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez. We all know Madge’s marriage is teetering on the brink of divorce, but would she really take up with a married man right now – and a much-younger baseball player at that? Well, this is Madonna. She may be old, but anything still is possible. Both UsandOK! magazines are reporting that the Madge and the superstar b-baller have been getting close since October, when they were spotted working out together in NYC. He attended her concert in May, and she took her family to watch the Yankees play – and sat in A-Rod seats. Even more scandalous – they’ve been spotting having secret meetings at her place late at night.
15-year old Miley Cyrus is finally breaking her silence about that infamous Vanity Fair pic of her wrapped topless in a sheet. You know the one. She had previously said she was “embarassed” by the pics, but now she seems to be seeing the upside of such a scandal.
?I was embarrassed, but also it?s like, every career thing that I do can’t be perfect, and sometimes my decisions are wrong. I think that just makes me even more relatable.?
She is right – everyone can relate to doing stupid sh*t in high school. The difference is we didn’t have a bedroom full of Benjamins to come home to and cry in at night. Stars: they’re still not like us, no matter how many regretful topless photos they take! [MSNBC]
Hurray! The greatest celebrity feud has just begun. Animal-lover Pam Anderson labeled Jessica Simpson a “bitch and whore” in an interview, after the singer was spotted wearing a t-shirt that read “Real Girls Eat Meat.” Yup, it’s pot and kettle time! She went on to say, “Actually, I don’t know if she was talking about food or men.” Dissed!
Pam Anderson is a vegetarian, among other things, but still we’ve gotta call bullsh*t on her for a couple of reasons.
1. She may not eat meat, but she wears it. While she renounced Uggs in 2007, she stuck her feet deep into those sheepskin boots for years. And seriously, if you can’t figure out those are made of animal fur and skin, then should you really be talking?
2. Google “Pam Anderson sex tape” and you get 1,750,000 results. So really, Pam, who you callin’ a whore?
Rapper DMX was arrested – again – this weekend trying to purchase some coke n’ weed from an undercover police officer. After asking the cop for “30 Powder & 15 Weed,” the Ruff Ryder handed over $45 and was immediately arrested. This is the fourth – yes, FOURTH – time DMX has been arrested since May 7th, when he was popped for reckless driving, among other charges. On May 9th he was nailed for animal cruelty and drug possession, and just last week on June 23 he was popped driving without a driver’s license.
Does this guy have any friends to look out for him (besides his abused dogs)? Can’t the Lohans and the Spears clans rally round this guy and haul him off to rehab, starlet style? [TMZ]
What a great weekend for Wino wackiness. Amy performed at both Nelson Mandela’s 90th birthday celebration and the UK’s Glastonbury festival, and thankfully she was up to her regular insanity! During her Glastonbury set Amy got physical with a fan in the audience, flailing wildly and whacking the guy before a few beefy security dudes stepped in. (Check out the clip above.) Unfazed, Amy then improvised some lines in her song “Some Unholy War” about Blake Incarcerated, adding in “I’m not opening for a c*nt like Kanye.”
Kanye then took to his broken MacBook Air – of course – to tell the world that he doesn’t give a sh*t what Amy Winehouse thinks of him. Do these two thrive off of the drama or what? If Blake gets locked up for good they should seriously think about getting together. It’d be the hottest mess ever!
Mama Christina Aguilera appeared on Larry King Live last night to promote her PSA for Rock the Vote.
The “Dirrty” singer revealed to the veteran talk show host that last year was the first year she exercised her right to vote and that she felt “ashamed” for waiting so long. To make up for it, Christina picked up her 5-month-old baby Max Liron, wrapped him in an American flag, and posed for a PSA to promote the organization, which helps register young voters.
Christina, who follows a long line of artists to be the face of Rock the Vote, including Madonna as the first almost 18 years ago, was referred to by Larry as a “soft” singer. Xtina cooly set him straight, letting him knowing that she is actually known for her powerful vocals. Max’s mama will again show off her powerhouse voice when the Rock the Vote PSA is revealed, which features the singer belting out her special version of “America the Beautiful.”
