The other day, a teaser of one of Britney’s bonus tracks called “Selfish” surfaced and it was so good that people thought it should have been included in the album proper. Today, teasers of the other three of the four bonus tracks on her Femme Fatale Deluxe Edition have now surfaced. Rodney Jerkins produced the songs called “He About To Lose Me” and “Don’t Keep Me Waiting,” and co-produced “Up ‘N Down” with Max Martin.

I like two of the three songs, while “Don’t Keep Me Waiting” just doesn’t do it for me. “Up ‘N Down” is probably my favorite of the three, and that’s probably because Max Martin had a hand in it. The “Selfish” teaser from earlier this week seems to have vanished online, so we’ll just have to wait til it all comes out officially. Man, what will we do when we don’t have Britney teasers to listen to every second day? I guess we’ll get right back into those 5 second music video clips for her next single, like she did for HIAM.

Top 5 Ark (Cheese) Music Factory Music Videos

In: Music, Patrick

In the past couple days, a song called “Friday” by a young girl named Rebecca Black has gone viral. You must be thinking, “this must be an amazing song if it’s gone viral,” right? Well, the truth is it isn’t…which in turn makes it amazing. Black sings about everything she does. Something like this, “I wake up, then I go downstairs, I got to have breakfast, cereal, have to catch the bus now, oh my friends! Should I sit in the front seat or the back seat?” That’s pretty much how the song goes, when she’s not explaining that after Friday comes Saturday, which is then followed by Sunday. Unfortunately for us, the beat is catch and the lyrics are so terrible, you can’t help but watch it over and over. At that point, you’re not sure if that means you actually like the song or if you’ve just been brainwashed by it. All I know is, that’s the stage I’m at and I can’t wait until Friday.

It’s this song, one of the many songs produced by Ark Music Factory, that led me to a collection of their other gems. Before retiring for the evening, last night Tyrell and I decided to have a good laugh and go through them last night, selecting our favorite ones to share with you. Oh man, are you ever in for a treat.

American Idol 10: Top 12 Performances

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Idol started off the night’s show with a tastefully done PSA regarding the devastation occurring in Japan. It was like a mini Idol Gives Back episode. The judges and Ryan Seacrest revealed that all the proceeds from any of the download songs from tonight’s show would go to the Red Cross in their relief efforts. Hopefully they’ll raise a lot of money to help those who have been affected by this horrible natural disaster. Onto the show…

In the audience this week were former Idol’s Tamyra Gray and Carly Smithson. By far two of my favorite also-rans. Kate Hudson was also spotted in the crowd in some really bad seats with baby daddy Matt Bellamy from Muse. This week’s theme was “The Year They Were Born“. Yawn, I’m so tired of this recycled theme. Give me some an electro-pop, country, R&B week or something else new. Hell, I’ll even take 50s week.

Contrary to what Steven Tyler said, this, IMHO, was the weakest show of the live shows so far. There were a couple of really bad trainwrecks. Remember when making it your own was stripping a song down or playing an instrument. This year, the mentor producers are obsessed with giving ballads dance remix treatments. So, not fantastic. Find out how I ranked this week’s performances at the end of the post. I’d love to know your rankings too. Be sure to post them in the comments section.

Yesterday, the world was treated to two slices of American Pie. For the first piece, we received a bit of ice cream when we learned that a majority of the original cast had signed on for American Reunion with filming to begin in the upcoming weeks. Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg who wrote and directed Harold & Kumar are set to write and direct this installment of the American Pie franchise. That’s awesome.

Now, for the second slice of pie, 86 the ice cream. Stifler aka Seann William Scott has entered treatment for health and personal reasons. That seems to be the only information available as the true details seem to be undisclosed. His reps say: “Seann William Scott has voluntarily admitted himself for proactive treatment to address health and personal issues,” the reps say in a statement. “He appreciates the support of his many fans at this time.”

Previously on America’s Next Top Model, Tyrant subjected the wannabes to some seriously lackluster makeovers. And in one case, one the worst makeovers in ANTM history. Poor Molly got the world’s worst weave. Tragic comes to mind. The girls were then paired up for some group photo action. Some continued to impress, several fell flat, and one was bad enough to get the boot. Buh bye Dominique. I’m gonna miss your freckles. You know what I won’t miss? Kasia’s open-mouthed pouty face. She puts Trouty Mouth to shame in her pics. OMGlee! Ten girls whose careers are already over remain. Who will be eliminated tonight?

Today’s side note is brought to you by McDonald’s. I just wolfed down a big-ass shamrock milkshake on my way home from a late meeting. Damn that shit is good. Don’t judge. Tomorrow is St. Patty’s Day. I was celebrating. How do you think they get the shake that AMAZING colour of green? How many calories did I just consume? Wouldn’t it be fun to pour that green shit all over Tyrant’s weave? Bitch poured beer on my weave! Ahhh… memories. I miss Tiffany.

We start off this week with Alexandria in confessional saying she wants to redeem herself after Tyrant said she had a bad attitude. Redeem hard sister. Redeem hard. ‘Cause you’re a piece of work. Kasia then confesses that Alexandria should have been sent home, not given top photo because of her ‘tude. And the claws are out! Molly’s just scratching her nasty weave.

Just one week before the 9.0 earthquake shook Japan, the Black Eyed Peas shot their video for their latest single, “Just Can’t Get Enough“.They make a dedication at the beginning of the video to those suffering and grieving as a result of the catastrophe: “Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the people of Japan. We love you.”

The video was directed by Ben Mor, who also directed their other videos, “I Gotta Feeling,” and “Meet Me Halfway”. In their usual style, the video has a very futuristic feel, with their style, lighting, and special effects. The video captures the hustle and bustle of a very advanced, futuristic city, only one week before it was literally shook to the core. The mellowness and lyrics of the song are eerily fitting for the visuals of Japan post earthquake/tsunami… “Boy, I think about it every night and day…”

Towards the end as the song picks up the pace, and the futuristic feel is amped up. I feel like I wouldn’t have been as interested in this video as I was had it not been filmed in Japan, and if it wasn’t a sad song. That being said, it was filmed in Japan and it works. It was nice of them to dedicate the video to the those affected and at the end, they provide info on how to donate/help.

Check Out “Friends With Benefits”

In: Movies, Tyrell

Call me crazy but doesn’t this premise seem familiar? Doesn’t a movie like this already exist starring an Oscar winning actress? Will Ashton Kutcher punk Justin Timberlake (for the second time) at the premiere saying “Ha, I already made this movie?” May I introduce you to Friends With Benefits.

This film starring Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis tells the story of two friends who have recently become single and decide to be friends with the benefits of sex. When Dylan (Timberlake) goes to LA to see his family, Jamie (Kunis) joins him and the two embark on more of their not-so relationship. My vote is they end up together in the end.

The most interesting part of this movie seems to be its list of supporting players including Jenna Elfman and Woody Harrelson. As much as the plot seems strikingly similar to No Strings Attached, I still can’t wait to see this movie and chemistry between Kunis and Timberlake. (Possible current friends with benefits?)

Check out the trailer after the jump.

Last week, the infamous Russell Hantz was sent home from Redemption Island in tears, as he failed his third attempt at Survivor. This week, Matt faces off with Kristina on Redemption Island, after she was voted out of her tribe. To watch the dual, Ometepe sends Rob & Grant, while Zapatera sends Stephanie & Krista. The two girls are on their own after their fearless leader Russell was voted out. Their plan is tell Boston Rob they want to join their tribe at the merge.

For this week’s challenge, they each have to put together a puzzle with heavy box pieces. As Matt works, he says to Rob on the sidelines, “Rascall, voted me out for no reason.” Rob says it takes more than one person to vote someone out. In the end, Matt wins the challenge, and a breathless Kristina loses her shot at redemption. Stephanie says to Rob & Grant, “I think yellow might look good on me.” Krista agrees. Rob thinks that it’s great, as long as they’re not lying.
