I can’t stop listening to will.i.am & Britney Spears‘ new “Scream & Shout” song (the official cover art shown below) and am excited to share some of the details on the release of the upcoming music video. The video will be released on Wednesday, November 28, first premiering on The X Factor (which airs on FOX 8:00-10:00 pm ET live/PT tape-delayed). The video, directed by Ben Mor, will be available for viewing on VEVO immediately following the west coast broadcast.
The track was produced by Lazy Jay was released to radio this past Monday. Today, a new star-studded commercial for Beats By Dre was released which features the “Scream & Shout” song as well. In the ad, will.i.am mouths the lyrics to his verses in the song in between clips of people dancing to the song while Beats By Dre cover their ears.
Some of the celebrities that are dancing in the video include Ellie Goulding, Lil’ Wayne, Azealia Banks, Lebron James, MGK, Nyjah Huston, Zendaya and more. Watch the video below!
YES!! “It’s Britney, bitch!” Will.I.Am‘s new song collaboration with Britney Spears called “Scream & Shout” has leaked and we’ve got the full version for you to check out below! The song was supposed to come out on Monday, but low and behold, it’s here for the weekend.
The upbeat track seriously makes me what to go out and dance! Britney comes in right at the beginning of the first verse and says the following with a bit of an accent: “When you hear us the club, you gotta turn this shit up / you gotta turn that shit / You gotta turn that shit up / When we up in the club, all eyes on us / all eyes on us / all eyes on us.”
Occasionally, you here the following as well, “You are now rocking with Will.I.Am and Britney, bitch!” The “Britney, bitch” part is an actual soundbite from her “Gimme More” hit from 2007. In the chorus, the both sing, “I wanna scream and shout, and let it all out“. The new song will be available to download next week but in the meantime, give it a listen below!
Last night, Britney Spears and Simon Cowell stopped by The Tonight Show with Jay Leno for an interview to chat about The X Factor. I’m loving Britney’s new look with the bangs!
I’ve included a few clips from the interview. The first is Leno talking to Britney about what it’s been like to have people boo at her, considering that is obviously something she’s not used to. Simon explained, “She looked at me like what have I signed up for here, after two hours we had a conversation and it was like I’m not sure I should be doing this they all hate me, they’re booing me… I said you’re doing a brilliant job get used to it.”Britney added, “You’re just like ‘cringe,’ you’re just like ‘oh my god’”. They also discuss their new political commercial for The X Factor that included both Barack Obama and Mitt Romney.
Watch the videos below. I’ll add more clips from the interview as they come available. Can’t wait to start watching the live shows this week with Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez!
Back in 2000, Britney Spears sang a song about a girl named “Lucky“. Remember that ditty? Twelve years later, the 30-year-old singer is gracing the cover of Lucky magazine. Her cover leaves me asking one huge question. Why in the world is she wearing a wig? At least that’s what it looks like? Did Miss Spears shave her head, oops one more time? The hairline looks awkward, especially in the pictures inside the December 2012 issue. I’m sure Team Xtina will be proclaiming the “Genie In A Bottle” singer’s Lucky October 2012 cover is better. Check out the pictures below along with a few quotes from her interview.
“They’re in the middle right now of trying to figure it out. They try to figure out where I go when I go to film X Factor. They’re like, ‘Mommy’s going off to be a superhero.’ and then I get back, and they just see me as Mommy. And then when I’m back working on the show, they say, ‘Oh, Mommy’s a superhero again!’”
The X Factor has been a lot of fun this season so far, and with the live shows just around the corner with Mario Lopez and Khloe Kardashian as judges, there’s a whole lot more in store.
This week, the judges released videos as mock election-type campaigns against each other. In Simon’s, he targets Britney Spears, Demi Lovato, and L.A. Reid. In the video, he says all of them are pushy and then takes a jab at their credibility by saying Britney Spears is “flirty“, Demi Lovato “crosses boundaries“, and that L.A. Reid is “suggestive” with both men and women. He suggests that those three judges refuse to remain impartial while judging. The video wraps up with emphasizing how amazing Cowell is and that America deserves a judge like him. “I’m Simon Cowell and I approved this message,” he says at the end. Watch the silliness below.
Find out what the other judges had to say about each other in their campaign videos below.
During her “dark phase,” Britney Spears released the Blackout album on October 26, 2007 (as a side note, today is also Homorazzi cast member, Tyrell‘s birthday!) At that time, the album hit number two on the Billboard 200 with very little promotion. That being said, it took up until May of 2012 to hit platinum, officially selling one million copies.
This was a time where you stuck by Britney, or you wrote her off as a trainwreck. It was a comeback, then it wasn’t, then it was… etc. I was definitely on #TeamBritney the whole way and actually really loved this album. It’s the only studio album of Brit’s to not debut at number one on the Billboard 200. What happened? It was outsold by the Eagles’ Long Road Out of Eden album that was sold at Walmart. The bargain chain then put out a press release that the Eagles sold double of what Spears had done and then Billboard did a controversial and shady rule change that allowed the sales from Walmart to count, in turn making Britney number two.
If you recall, she received the MTV Video of the Year for “Piece Of Me” that year and overall, critics and fans alike loved the album. Rolling Stone critic Rob Sheffield went so far as to say that the unique electronic sound in 2007 inspired many contemporary pop albums and artists. Back in January of 2011, he also added that the album is “possibly the most influential pop album of the last five years.” I’m totally pressing play on this album right now. Listen to it below and vote for your favorite tracks from the album. Happy 5-Year Anniversary, Blackout!
With the broadcast fail of ‘The X Factor‘ last night, we’re going to talk about Britney Spears‘ alleged new home instead. That being said, if you do want to know who made it to the live shows, our Top 16 Spoilers article has been 100% accurate thus far.
As the title mentions, Britney’s speculated new home is not the one shown on The X Factor (big surprise). I say “alleged” and “speculated” because although The Real Estalker believes it to be pretty accurate having some unsolicited sources, it hasn’t been confirmed. The mansion is located in Thousand Oaks, California and had a listing price of $8.5 million. It boasts 8,456 square feet with five bedrooms and seven bathrooms. It is located behind the gates of prestigious Sherwood Country Club. The pictures are stunning: High ceilings, luxurious decor, open-concept, and a spectacular view.
Boy would I love to live in this house. The gigantic pool is definitely a plus. Check out the pictures of the property below.
I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely excited about the Judges Homes Round on The X Factor this week. We’ll finally know for sure (despite the Top 16 Spoilers) who has made it through and who has which judge as their mentor.
This week, we get to see the superstar guest judges stop by the judges homes to help them analyze the contestants and provide their own feedback and opinions on each of them. At Will.I.Am is at Britney Spears’ house, Justin Bieber & Scooter Braun are at L.A. Reid’s house, Marc Anthony is at Simon Cowell’s house, and Nick Jonas is at Demi Lovato’s place. Based on the preview below, it looks like it’ll be a good episode.
Also, at the beginning of the preview, we see L.A. Reid storm off after hearing some disappointing news on the phone. Watch all the drama and discussion in the preview belw.
