Just imagine if Tom Hanks had this useful piece of info in Captain Phillips.
Let me just preface this by saying this is legit and not an April Fool’s Day joke several months early. And in Britney’s defense, it’s all types of western music, but her hits, “Baby One More Time” and “Oops! I Did it Again,” seem to be the most effective. Just imagine how much faster Somali pirates would leave if they heard Spears’ actual “live vocals.” I kid ;)
File this under random. Fun, but random nonetheless.
Britney Spears appeared alongside Nick Grimshaw for a Halloween sketch on BBC Radio 1. The “Work Bitch” singer channels her inner Vincent Price and recites the lyrics to Michael Jackson’s classic “Thriller.” She’s definitely not as ghostly and frightening as Price, but it’s nice to see Brit getting into the holiday spirit. Check it out below.
It’s Britney Jean bitch. The pop princess unveiled the cover of her upcoming eighth studio album and it’s surprisingly simple. Brit is in black and white with a heart around her name in neon. No doubt a nod to her upcoming Vegas residency.
In addition to unveiling the artwork, she posted a personal letter on her website. In it, she talks about the producers she worked with, how personal the album is and thanks her fans. She also confirmed the Sia-penned balled “Perfume” is the follow up to “Work Bitch.” It’ll drop November 5. Read the letter below.
It’s the announcement Brit’s army has been waiting for. Britney Spears revealed the title for her forthcoming eighth studio album. Due to the personal nature of the new LP, the 31-year-old stated Britney Jean would be the title. She further explained that her family always call her by that name.
Other topics Spears discussed during her interview with Capital Breakfast include her Las Vegas residency, Miley Cyrus’ VMA performance (can we please stop talking about this now?) and much more. Check out the video below. Surprisingly, Brit seems actually engaged, alert and dare I say it… animated.
“Work Bitch” debuted just outside Billboard Hot 100′s Top 10. In its second week it dropped all the way to No. 41. Thanks to online video streams and increased radio play, Britney Spears has rebounded quite nicely this week. Avoiding being called a bomb, “Work Bitch” propels back to No. 13. Looks like the single is a slow burn with fans just now getting into it now.
One of those fans is none other than Azealia Banks. The 22-year-old rapper remixes Brit’s latest single by adding several fresh verses to the catchy beat. She lets Spears close it out with her original vocals. Banks plans to release her next album, Broke With Expensive Taste, early next year. Check out the hot remix below.
Do you wanna dance with Britney Spears? Simple. Just record a dance track that references her current single and voila. Tom Neville & Zen Freeman enlisted the talents of Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul for “Dance Bitch.” It’s sputtering synths merge to a sexy house beat as Paul, in his signature voice, proclaims “dance bitch.”
The 34-year-old actor tweeted Brit a link to the track and asked if she ever wants to dance with him. She responded, “@aaronpaul_8 Omg I can’t believe you tweeted me. I love watching your show. Huge fan and yes, we can dance anytime!” Perhaps, he can sweet talk Spears into making a cameo in the music video should they decided to film one. Check out the track below.
Earlier this week, Britney Spears debuted her new music video for “Work Bitch” and it featured the incredibly sexy, Richie Nuzzolese. As shown him above, you may recognize him from Katy Perry‘s “Last Friday Night” music video, among other things like the “Dirty Laundry” Andrew Christian video and more. We’ve also previously featured him in a Model Behavior post.
Aside from the music video, Nuzzolese is working on a YouTube project with some friends and is working on his own music. He’s posted a few covers on line and is busy recording his own original stuff as well. Other things you might recognize him from is a Renuzit commercial and if you watch the E! Network, he’s the guy promoting the Ross Matthews talk show.
Check out a bunch of videos as well as some exclusive never before released photos of the hottie below. Enjoy!
Since Britney Spears recently revealed she wasn’t comfortable being sexy anymore because she’s a mother (I call BS) and nixed almost half of the original footage, I’m shifting all these plagiarism claims to her people, most notably director Ben Mor. Just like with that Jonas Akerlund debacle with similar visuals for Katy Perry’s perfume commercial and Beyonce’s Miss Carter World Tour promo. Ultimately, it’s the director’s vision, especially when said artist is Spears who seems, no offense, heavily persuaded by her creative team.
In the end, everyone borrows from everyone. Maybe I should say, gets inspired. Much more polite, right? At least with Britney’s awesome “Work Bitch” it wasn’t one specific artist that was targeted. Mor went global and picked a Serbian dance diva (Nikolija), Mexican pop duo (Prima J) and a Chinese sensation (Jane Zhang) to get “inspired” by and fuse together ideas for Brit’s latest clip. Arguably, Zhang was the biggest influence. Her desert backdrop while grooving with an army of backup dancers on a raised square-shaped platform is practically a carbon copy. Check out all the original clips below and weigh in afterward.
