And they are all INCREDIBLE! The HOTTEST vocalists on the scene right now are all booked to perform at Jeffrey Sanker’s White Party in Palm Springs this April. After a very impressive DJ lineup announcement (including some of my faves Freemasons, Joe Gauthreaux, Kimberly S, Peter Rauhofer, Rosabel and Hector Fonseca), the performer list was revealed a couple days ago and it’s unbelievable! I wasn’t sure if I was wanting to go this year, but after the performer announcement, it’s making me REALLY want to go! Here are the girls!
Arguably the hottest vocalist out there right now, her song “Happiness” was one of the best club tracks out for almost 2 years. Being only 18 years old, she’s also one of the youngest? Can she even get into clubs (I’m teasing). She’s got a new track out “Good Girl” with a sickening remix done by The Freemasons. Alexis is performing the Sunday T Dance, the BEST event of the whole weekend with The Freemasons.
The buildup for Britney Spears’ “Hold It Against Me” music video has felt like a lifetime. For days now, we’ve been bombarded with 5-7 second teasers giving us just a brief look at her upcoming visual opus directed by Jonas Akerlund. I almost feel numb from the media blitz. If you can’t wait to see the full clip (like me) when it premiere’s tonight on MTV before a brand new “Jersey Shore“, I’ve got a 30-second preview of the finished product to quench your thirst.
Unlike those annoying teasers, this actually gives you a good look at the music video. I have to say, Brit looks pretty darn hot. She’s got some really sexy come f*ck me hair. The record label must’ve shelled out mucho dineros for this shoot. The set, the scenery, the special effects, it all looks super big-budget. Everything about it looks wicked. Check it out below.
He’s danced with the biggest pop stars, and now 30 year old Leo Monctezuma (photo above by Ali Salehi) is stepping into the spotlight with his debut single “Unconditional” with it’s accompanying music video. He danced for Britney Spears on her “Dream Within a Dream Tour” and her “Onyx Hotel Tour,” as well as in Christina’s “Stripped Tour,” and Ricky Martin’s “Livin’ La Vida Loca” World Tour, among others.
He’s good friends with Brian Friedman, choreographer and former judge of X-Factor UK, as well as the choreographer for Britney’s highly anticipated “Hold It Against Me” music video that comes out on Friday.
The video is directed by Cole Walliser & choreographed by Kevin Maher and has over 12 thousand YouTube Views after only a week online. He calls the vibe of his music a, “Music Cocktail”: Pop R&B on the Rocks with a Latin Twist! The song kind of reminds me a little of Seal’s “Amazing” and I like it! Check it out!
Let me just start by saying that not too long ago, Britney Spears flexed her muscles and set the records for most downloads of a single in the first week for “Hold It Against Me” (which has the accompanying music video coming out this Friday – YAY!). Now, Lady Gaga just beat the record. Spears set the record at 411,000 sold in the first week, while Gaga just broke that, selling 450,000 in less than three days! When put male musicians into the mix, “Born This Way” comes in fourth after Flo Rida‘s “Right Round” at 636,000, Black Eyed Peas‘ “Boom Boom Pow at 465,000, and Flo Rida’s “Low” 460,000.
There has been a lot of talk about the similarities between Gaga’s new song and Madonna’s “Express Yourself”. I mean, I see a bit of similarity, but in my opinion people are reading into it more than they need to be. In setting the record straight, Gaga was on Jay Leno Monday night where she put to rest the Madonna “Express Yourself” and “Born This Way” similarity controversy. Sidenote: She was freaking hilarious (and well spoken) on Leno. I had actually never seen her as funny as she was. She brought her Grammys and put M&Ms in them for Jay Leno, and when he asked her about something she didn’t really want to even acknowledge, she simply said, “I’m ignoring you.” HA! Anyway, here’s what she said about Madonna…
Britney Spears just announced the name of her upcoming album this morning via Twitter: Femme Fatale.
“I’ve poured my heart and soul into this album over the last two years. I’ve put everything I have into it. This album is for you, my fans, who have supported me and have stuck by me every step of the way! I love you all!”
Gay music video parody master Ryan James Yezak has just released his parody to Britney Spears’ monster hit, “Hold It Against Me“. If you checked out my Top 10 Gay Parodies of 2010, you’d know that his videos were five out of the ten I included in the list – he’s really good at what he does.
Yezak always releases a video announcing what his next parody will be, and he did just that a week ago. Needless to say, I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what he’d come up with for this one. He had informed everyone that a fierce dancer by the name of Donna Hood, who had made appearances in a couple of his previous videos, would be starring as Britney in the video.
Although it’s well made and he tries some things he hasn’t before, it’s not my favorite. I feel like he definitely has moved away from his usual gay music video parodies in this one and instead just made his own interpretation of what he would make the music video look like if he was directing Spears’ video. I mean, I don’t blame him for wanting to make himself more marketable as a director by not focusing only on gay videos…but I just didn’t enjoy it as much. There’s a world of difference between this one and the entertainment value of his parody for Katy Perry’s “Peacock“, for example. See for yourself.
Bluewater Productions is back with another issue from their FAME comic book series. Past FAME creations have included Taylor Swift, Taylor Lautner, Robert Pattinson, Justin Bieber, David Beckham and Lady Gaga. Now, Britney Spears is taking her turn on the pages.
The FAME comic books are created to depict the lives of stars from their humble beginnings all the way through to their superstardom. While most of the covers have been great artistic impressions of the star at hand, Britney’s cover looks like she is in some desperate need of a face lift. The lines on her face are too much.
At first glance, the comic book looks fun for the average Britney fan. Take a closer look and you’ll see the writer of the comic didn’t take too much time to learn much about the Hold It Against Me singer. Most of the information is found on her Wikipedia page or basic fan site biographies. While some specific details may be missing, it still may be a fun addition to your Britney shrine.
Ding ding, round 2 of my new favorite post of the week, Who’d You Rather. Last week, I pitted two male models against each other. Although both in the same field, you highly agreed that Todd Sanfield should be crowned the winner. This week, I’m pitting two male models once again, but this time, they have something else in common: they have both starred in female power house music videos. Meet today’s match up.
Brandon Stoughton is not only ridiculously good looking but also the male star in the video for Britney Spears’ Womanizer. Rumour has it that he’s gay and has a little bit of a romantic history with one Lance Bass. He is an LA native born in 1981 and in ’07, snagged his first big ad campaign with Calvin Klein.
Willy Monfret is the steamy tall dark and handsome man with the most appealing eyes in Nicki Minaj’s video for Right Thru Me. This leading male was discovered in Paris when he was 27 years old after leaving the world of athletics due to an injury. Naturally, with a body like that, he decided to make the move to modelling. Good choice.
