Heading into the 2015 Billboard Music Awards telecast, Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea’s first performance of “Pretty Girls” was without a doubt the performance everyone was looking most forward to. About two hours in, the duo did themselves proud. It wasn’t at all a trainwreck, and in fact, both ladies looked sensational. Britney, IMHO, hasn’t looked this great and comfortable on stage in years. Well done.

Mariah Carey also made a notable appearance as well. She hit the Billboard stage for the first time in 17 years. Perhaps she’s still recuperating from bronchitis, but Mimi wasn’t at her vocal best. Every note felt so laborious as opposed to the ease she belted out those notes years ago.

Meanwhile, Kelly Clarkson absolutely slayed her vocals during her “Invincible” performance as did Tori Kelly and Nick Jonas on “Nobody Love” and “Jealous” respectively.

Speaking of Jonas, he was in fine form tonight. Dude looked beyond sexy. Charlie Puth and Empire‘s Jussie Smollett also smoldered on stage during their respective performances. Check out all the videos below.

With Iggy Azalea involved, an entertaining music video is pretty much guaranteed. The Aussie rapper’s cinematic approach is always on point. I’m willing to bet the farm it was Iggy’s idea to draw inspiration from the 80s cult film, Earth Girls Are Easy. Right?

Pretty Girls” starts off with I-G-G-Y arriving on Earth in Britney Spears’ pool, looking fierce in her silver intergalactic outfit and skyscraper beehive. After a quick Valley Girl couture makeover, the duo ride top down telling the world exactly how pretty they are.

The Camerdon Duddy-directed clip features both ladies showing off their acting skills. Not surprisingly, it’s a bit awkward and unnecessary, but fun to see, in a hate-watching sort of way. Check out the video below. It’s not a bad clip, but it still doesn’t endear me to the song yet. I’m a little worried this will never grow on me.

To celebrate one of my friend’s upcoming 30th birthday, we decided to head to Las Vegas. Why Sin City, you ask? My friend is probably the biggest Britney Spears fan I know and he wants to watch her Piece of Me show for the second time. This time however, we’re forgoing the table and taking our chances in the pit. #GodHelpMe 😉

In honor of our debaucherous weekend, I thought I’d share this recent spread featuring Willie Gomez, who is arguably Brit’s hottest dancer. Last time, I focused too much on Gomez and the other dancers and not on Spears. Not going to lie, it’ll probably happen again since this time I’ll be even closer. LOL.

Check out Gomez strutting his stuff below for photographer Darren Tieste in the latest issue of Dorian Magazine.

Who knew pairing up Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea together would yield something Gwen Stefani might’ve recorded a decade ago. Seriously, this sounds like “Hollaback” 2.0, which might not necessarily be a bad thing.

Pretty Girls,” not surprisingly, leaked days before its official release. It’s more urban pop than club banger. It’s not what I expected from the duo, but I’m kinda liking it. With the loyal fanbases of both ladies, this will surely be a contender for 2015 Song of the Summer honors.

Reportedly, Little Mix recorded a demo but ditched it. If this becomes a huge smash, I’m sure the British quartet might be a little upset. Oh well, at least they have songwriting credits on the track. That’s where the real money is at, right?

I can’t wait to see the accompanying music video which was inspired by the ’80s cult comedy Earth Girls Are Easy. Give it a listen below. No fuglies allowed. This is only for the pretties 😉

Britney Spears’ Cover Of Tom’s Diner Leaks In Full

In: Donovan, Music

The decision for Britney Spears to cover “Tom’s Diner” is pure genius. Let’s be honest. It fits perfectly within her vocal wheelhouse. No one can sing-speak like the 33-year-old entertainer.

Tom’s Diner” was initially released by Suzanne Vega in 1987 and became a Top 5 hit. It returned back to the charts and surprisingly the clubs in the 90s when DNA did a killer remix.

It appears Spears’ cover for Giorgio Moroder’s forthcoming album follows more in that vein. Her rendition is hypnotically haunting and robotic. In essence, quintessential Brit. Give it a spin below.

It was one of the worst kept secrets regarding the 2015 Billboard Music Awards. Practically everyone and their dog knew Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea were going to perform their new track “Pretty Girls” in Las Vegas on Sunday, May 17.

The “Toxic” singer officially confirmed the performance earlier today by appearing in a promo for the annual event. Spears and Azalea are among a star-studded lineup which includes Kelly Clarkson, Meghan Trainor, Nick Jonas, Ed Sheeran and more performing on stage. Check out the video below.

PS. How hilarious would it be if this highly-hyped Britney-Iggy collaboration turns out to be one massive flop? Personally, I don’t think it will, but I also don’t think it’ll reach the heights of “Fancy” or anything during Spears’ glory days. Do you? Weigh in below.

Ever since I heard the first cut, the Kylie Minogue collaboration “Right Here, Right Now” which I love, I’ve been chomping at the bits to hear more from Giorgio Moroder’s highly-anticipated album. With only two months to go before Déjà Vu drops on June 12, we finally get a new song. It’s none other than the title track featuring Sia.

As one would expect, “Déjà Vu” is a disco-tinged masterpiece from the legendary 74-year-old producer. Hopefully, this gets an accompanying music video. If only to see what kind of wig or apparatus the Aussie singer uses to block her face. Too bad, Moroder only previewed a minute. I can’t wait to hear the entire thing.

I’m also curious to hear Britney Spears’ cover of the Suzanne Vega classic “Tom’s Diner.” Quite an interesting choice. Kelis, Matthew Koma, Charli XCX, Mikky Ekko, Foxes and more have contributed to the album as well. Check out the official tracklist below along with previewing the Sia-assisted song.

She may not have the same magic touch when it comes to album sales when compared to her hey day, but Britney Spears is looking hotter than ever these days. I mean c’mon, those legs are killer on the cover of the latest issue of Billboard magazine. Holy MILF!!!

For the accompanying interview, the 33-year-old singer talks about new music. She reveals she’s working, albeit slowly, on her eighth studio album. Given that Britney Jean gave Spears her lowest debut for a studio set ever at 107,000 copies, I don’t blame her for taking her time. Two bombs in a row would be catastrophic for her career.

“I’m gonna do [a new album] slowly but surely,” Spears tells Billboard. “There’s a lot going on with my kids and schools and, you know, adding new sports and stuff like that. I’m gonna try to do my best to do an amazing album, but it’s not my full priority right now.” The mother of sons Sean Preston, 9, and Jayden James, 8, then added with a laugh, “Kids can drive you crazy.”
