It hasn’t been a banner year for Britney Spears. The world has seen her “undercarriage” multiple times as a result of her commando tendencies. Her amazing marriage to Kevin Federline has dissolved. And she had the most widely publicized nervous breakdown ever, complete with shaved head. But Britney could be getting back on her feet.
Why is it that hip-hop always seems to have a plethora of feuds? The latest of such spats involves ultra producer Timbaland and Scott Storch. Let the games begin.
Timbaland’s new song “Give it to me” contains some harsh lyrics. Initially Timbaland’s rep claimed that it was fictional, having no actual target. Unfortunately, Timbaland made his rep a liar the other night at Club Marquee.
Nelly Furtado was running around like crazy last night at the Juno Awards. Juno is the Canadian equivalent of the Grammy, by the way. The pop singer was both the host of the show and a scheduled performer.
But that isn’t what made the event memorable for Furtado. She ended up being the biggest winner of the evening, taking home trophies in all five categories in which she was nominated.
Springtime marks one of the most popular music release periods in the industry, second only to back to school-time. This week finds us looking at a smattering of new material from Hilary Duff, Fountains of Wayne, Timbaland, and Paul Wall.
Puerto Rican popstar Jennifer Lopez is getting back to her roots. At the advice of her Latin Lover husband Marc Anthony, Lopez has recorded a new album of Spanish love songs. She has also dropped her “J. Lo” moniker.
"I'm not J.Lo any more. That's all gone with all the ridiculous stories about tantrums and Egyptian sheets. That's all my past,” she told the Guardian newspaper in Great Britain. "I'm Jennifer Lopez. I think, as a woman, I've finally grown surer of who I am. It does seem ironic that it has taken me more than a decade to basically get back to who I am."
The always charitable rock-star Bono became a knight of the British empire Thursday. Showing his humility and sense of humor, Bono graciously accepted, but would prefer that he not be called Sir Bono.
"You have permission to call me anything you want... except sir, all right? Lord of lords, your demigodness, that'll do," the 46-year-old U2 frontman told reporters "after he was crowned a Knight Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire in a jokey, informal ceremony in the Dublin home of British Ambassador David Reddaway," according to the Post Star.
It seems that Chris Sligh won’t be “bringing chubby back.” The 28-year-old American Idol contestant has been eliminated. Sligh joined Haley Scarnato and Phil Stacey as the bottom three contestants after Wednesday’s results were read.
Sligh performed the Police’s “Every little thing she does is magic,” as what would turn out to be his swan song. Unfortunately for him, the judges weren’t very impressed, and America actually agreed with the judges.
Jamie “Taboo” Gomez, 31, was in the wrong place at the wrong time on Tuesday Mach 27th. The rapper/singer, one fourth of the Black Eyed Peas, crashed his car. But that isn’t the worst part (he didn’t have any injuries).
When the police showed up, they found him to be a bit tipsy. Then they searched his car and found that he had less than an ounce of marijuana and a prescribed medication without a prescription.
