In 1979, The Bellamy Brothers released a track called “If I Said You Had A Beautiful Body,” with the lyrics “If I said you had a beautiful body, would you hold it against me?” Needless to say, they are a bit peeved about Britney Spears‘s new song having very similar lyrics. I’m a little undecided on whether I think this is even an issue. The lyrics aren’t even exactly the same and their song came out over thirty years ago.
David Bellamy explains, “Howard and I have no personal beef with Britney. She’s a talented gal. But professionally we feel completely ripped off.” Britney’s HIAM lyrics say, “If I said I want your body now, would you hold it against me?”
Listen to the track below and share your thoughts on whether or not you think they have a case here.
Over the years, Britney Spears has provided some pretty visually stunning music videos. While some can be attributed to special effects and intricate choreography, others are HOT based solely on her jaw-dropping hunky male co-stars. While some of the highlighted hotties were lesser known fashion models, others have been up-and-coming actors and one of them even became Mr. Britney Spears.
Considering Britt has made numerous iconic music videos, only two of them have garnered her “Moon Man” statues from the MTV Video Music Awards- “Womanizer” and “Piece of Me“. VH1 also honored the pop princess by ranking her fourth in their “50 Greatest Women of the Video Era” countdown, behind Whitney, Janet and Madonna who was top dog. Though she’s worked with many well-respected directors like Billie Woodruff, Herb Ritts, and David LaChappelle to name a few, Spears reportedly often comes up with the the theme and storylines for her videos herself. She’s practically a female Martin Scorsese.
Her latest video “Hold It Against Me” is already a huge hit. On its first television telecast, over 3.5 million viewers watched its premiere. As of today, it’s racked up almost 5 million views on YouTube.
Producer Dr. Luke and Britney Spears have just revealed a snippet of her next single, “Inside Out“. The song is slower, more of a dubstep tempo, and I guess you could say it seems comparable to “Why Should I Be Sad,” from her Blackout album. Here are some of the lyrics you here:
“C’mon! Won’t you give me something to remember…Baby shut your mouth and turn me inside.”
Listen to the snippet below and share your thoughts on if you think this will be another smash hit for Britney. No word on the release date for this one.
It’s finally here! After much build up, with teaser after teaser, the Princess of Pop Britney Spears has revealed the highly anticipated music video to her new chart topper “Hold It Against Me“. The video is very different from anything she’s ever done. That said, just like her other videos, she spritzes some of her fragrance onto herself at the beginning before diving into her video. But, just like in Lady Gaga’s Telephone which was also directed by Jonas Akerlund, there is a lot of product placement. Luckily, it doesn’t bother me.
The set we saw in the teasers is pretty much where everything takes place. Once a meteor hits earth, it’s lights, camera, action…literally. Cameras and screens everywhere, and at one point, under a giant white dress (I’m guessing wedding dress) come several male dancers dressed in white…with no eyes. Later in the video, we see Britney vs. Britney, as she seriously kicks the crap out of herself. I love it! Flash to another scene, there is a florescent stringy substance shooting out from tubes attached to her hands & fingers onto everything around her, creating an orgasmic masterpiece of color. Then she’s out , and so are the two duelling Britneys.
I love the video and think it’s very visually stimulating and creative. I just can’t figure out the concept – LOL. A meteor hits earth, Britney wakes up, goes on Plenty-of-Fish, puts on a wedding dress, beats the crap out of herself, passes out, then busts a move one last time? Honestly, I really don’t care. I do wish we got to see her dancing for longer periods of time, rather than the quick flashes, but all in all, the video is fantastic.
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…
