We are getting word that Jive is going to get around the suggestiveness of If You Seek Amy by editing out “If you” and change it to Seek Amy?! Do you think that the song loses its meaning or do you think it will be alright? What do you guys think?
Jewelry designer Dara Dubinet has designed a $27,000 black Chinese agate rock ring for Britney Spears to wear to the Grammy Awards in February.
Dubinet started work on the huge gem after she spotted Spears wearing a Tourmaline ring she had created and sent to the pop star when she appeared on Good Morning America on her 27th birthday in December.
The designer tells Life & Style magazine she was told Spears “loved” her birthday gift.
And a source tells the publication, “She’s worn it several times, She says it has a positive energy, and it just makes her smile.”
A lot of people are already complaining about Britney’s new single. The timing of this annoucement is actually really odd since the Circus single just came out a month ago and they are already revealing the next song. Is this to keep Britney’s name in the news after weeks of no news? Or does Jive really think that they will able to keep it on the radio? Most thought Jive would hold off with this single to try it out for the last single? What do you guys think?
Breathe Heavy reports Looks like all those choreographer auditions paid off!
According to McDonald Selznick Associates, the agency that represents new tour director / choreographer Jamie King, JaQuel Knight and Tony Testa are the Contributing Choreographers, with Dreya Weber as the Aerial Choreographer.
Testa has danced with Britney for the VMA’s, Beyonce in “Dreamgirls” and choreographed and danced for Janet Jackson in her “20 Y.O.” project. He recently choreographed Season 1 of Nickelodeon’s “Dance on Sunset,” (airs sat. 9pm pacific) as well as a music video for Miranda Cosgrove, (icarly) and for Danity Kane’s “Making The Band 4″ The Tour.
BritneySpears.com has announced that the next single off of Circus will be If You Seek Amy. The single is to be released early March.
OK! Magazine reports She has a #1 album, recently entertained audiences on Good Morning America and shared the stage with Madonna. But with the March 3 launch of her concert tour in New Orleans, Britney Spears is hoping to regain much more: to fully reclaim the adulation and fame she had exactly 10 years ago, when her controversial single “Baby One More Time” shot to the top of the charts on Jan. 30, 1999.
But it’s no secret that, as she starts to climb back to the top, there are sacrifices she’s had to make along the way — specifically, spending less time with her two adorable sons, Sean Preston, 3, and Jayden James, 2.
Now, OK! has learned exclusivly the extraordinary price the singer is paying for her comeback, voluntarily giving up the fight to regain custody of her boys in exchange for fame.
Last fall, as her upcoming concert tour was being organized, Brit’s camp discovered that because of the star’s history, they could not purchase insurance to cover her tour unless she was still under the conservatorship of her father Jamie Spears. Until that point, the plan was for the conservatorship to be lifted on Dec. 31, followed by Britney, 27, heading to family court with a petition to regain custody of Preston and Jayden.
But an insider tells OK!, “The insurance situation changed everything.”
And so, on Oct. 28, the singer agreed to indefinitely accept her father as her conservator – a decision which meant she would still legally be considered a child. No judge would give her custody of her kids, nor would her ex-husband, Kevin Federline, agree to it.
“Whether it was her decision or whether she was pressured into it, Britney’s deal with the devil put the tour ahead of the kids,” the insider tells OK!.
Britney.com is reporting that If You Seek Amy will be the next song. Hopefully the radio will pick it up and the FCC doesn’t block it.
Britney Spears’ dad Jamie has officially been handed legal and permanent conservatorship over the singer’s estate almost a year after he was first put in charge of his daughter’s affairs.
Jamie Spears was made a co-conservator of his daughter’s legal, financial and personal dealings in February following a public breakdown in which the singer was entered into hospital to undergo a mental evaluation.
The elder Spears and lawyer Andrew Wallet stayed on as co-conservators throughout the remainder of the year , overseeing the “Toxic” superstar’s every move, including plans for her forthcoming Circus tour.
In October, a Los Angeles judge made Jamie Spears’ control of his daughter’s estate and wealth permanent, and in December he was provided with a pay raise from $10,000 to $16,000 a month.
And on Monday, court papers were filed in L.A. Superior Court to make the conservatorship legally official, stating that the star “is substantially unable to manage… her financial resources or to resist fraud or undue influence.”
According to Access Hollywood, the documents also state that Jamie Spears will have full power, even over who visits and befriends his daughter, saying that he has “the power to restrict and limit visitors by any means.”
Showbiz Spy reports Madonna is set to perform with Britney Spears in the summer, according to reports.
The Material Girl hitmaker, 50, is determined to mend her reputation in the UK following her recent divorce from husband Guy Ritchie.
So, the superstar has arranged to share the stage with Spears on some of the Toxic singer’s global Circus tour.
A source tells British tabloid the Daily Mirror, “Choreographers have been asked to create an out-of-this-world dance routine for Britney and Madonna.
“When Britney joined Madonna on stage for her Sticky and Sweet tour it was very sedate. This is going to be a high energy dance routine – getting back to what they are both good at, performing.”
Pop Crunch reports Jamie Spears’ control over daughter Britney’s upcoming Circus World Tour has driven her concert director and dance choreographer to quit, tabloid spies claim.
Tour director Wade Robson and lead choreographer Andre Fuentes, who have worked with Britney since the start of her career, jumped ship on The Spearses due to Jamie’s micromanagement, rules, curfews, drug tests, and over controlling nature, insiders reveal in this week’s edition of the National Enquirer.
“Jamie Spears is getting a reputation as a stage dad,” revealed a source. “It’s embarrassing for Britney.”
As Britney’s court-appointed conservator, Jamie is responsible for all decisions regarding his daugher’s finances and professional life.
Britney Spears flew to Louisiana Sunday with her two sons, Jayden James, 3, and Sean Preston, 2. The pop star is believed to be in her home town to attend the rumored New Year’s wedding of her brother, Bryan Spears, and his fiancé, Graciella Sanchez.
Sources say the couple recently began seriously dating. They have known each other for several years as Sanchez is the manager of Bryan’s younger sister, ‘Zoey 101’ actress Jamie Lynn Spears.
The entire Spears family, including Jamie Lynn’s 6-month-old daughter Maddie and fiancé Casey Aldridge, are expected to attend the ceremony.
Britney Spears is said to be “angry and jealous” over her ex-husband Kevin Federline’s new girlfriend, Victoria Prince. Sources say the pop star is upset with Federline as they were considering giving their relationship another shot when he began dating the former volleyball star.
“Britney is furious with Kevin. They were seeing a counselor with the idea of getting back together. When she recently returned from court performances in Japan, she learned he’d been out with a new blonde,” an insider claims. “Britney asked Kevin why he is seeing this woman. Kevin just shrugged it off, saying he is not married and free to do what he wants.”
Spears and Federline were married in 2004 and have two sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James. They were divorced in 2007.
Lindsay Lohan said “Britney Spears is an amazing talent, and she has gone through a lot, (just as I have) in the public eye. It teaches young girls and boys that there are certain things in life that you should not let get in the way of your dreams and accomplishments. Also that you need to take care of yourself before anyone else. You have to look at yourself in the mirror and see who you really are. Stripped of all the distractions in life. So YAY Britney for just being you and still following through with your dreams.”
There is really not much news going around but Circus did get to #1 on the World Chart! So congrats to another #1 on a chart for Britney!
The staff at BSO wants to wish everyone a happy and safe Christmas!
Britney Spears is forfeiting a night out on New Year’s Eve to look after her children.
The pop star is set to stay home on December 31 with sons Sean Preston, three, and Jayden James, two, while their father Kevin Federline – who has sole custody of the children – parties with new girlfriend Victoria Prince in Las Vegas.
A source close to Britney and her ex-husband Kevin told Britain’s Daily Star newspaper: “Kevin has been getting on much better with Britney recently, so he didn’t want to risk setting their relationship back by mentioning Victoria.
“And he knows she’s desperate to see the boys over Christmas, so he’s letting her visit them at his home over the festive period.
“He then added she could have them on New Year’s Eve, as if it was a great favour.”
It was recently revealed that the 27-year-old singer – who is currently enjoying a successful career comeback following the release of her new album ‘Circus’ – has asked Kevin to rekindle their relationship and move back in with her.
However, Kevin is apparently not interested in giving their romance a second chance.
He said recently: “There were times when I was up and down about it, but I just figure I’ve made all the right decisions.”
This week’s Fan Feature is on Mike a 22 year old, marketing student, that is currently signed as a working model in North Carolina.
When did you first start to like Britney?
I remember going to a birthday party in the sixth grade and everyone was standing around in a group looking at the baby one more time album. After that it seemed like everywhere I went her song was playing. It wasnt until I saw her video for the first time did I really start liking her. Back then it was the it thing to like her music
So you have been a fan throughout the years. What are your favorite songs?
I would say my top favorite songs have to be: Baby One More Time, Born To Make You Happy, and probably Oops I Did It Again.
Have you heard the Circus album?
Yes I bought the album the day it came out, but I heard most of the songs before it was released. What I love about the album is that the some of the songs are more deep and intellectual than any of her previous work. Especially the song Unusual You.
Has your opinion of Britney changed since last years events the breakdown, shaving of the head, and etc?
Yes. I think she has become even more real and relatable in my opinion. Its cool to see someone you thought was the perfect person for so many years actually go through what many of us go through daily. I believe everyone goes through deep and dark times and it seems like she truly will be stronger than yesterday. I am proud of her.
Has Britney influenced anything in your life?
Yes. Seeing her drive and determination over the years has inspired me to try to reach my goals and dreams. She has accomplished so much in her career and is a great role model for anyone who has a dream.
Did you watch For The Record?
I thought it was amazing. it felt like I was watching a movie the entire time. It made me laugh, sad and i almost cried. It had a really great underlining message of hope and faith in it. In the end it made me excited for her future.
Britney has been performing a lot more these days? What do you think about her dancing and what is your favorite performance?
I think that for what she has been through her performances have been great! My favorite perfromance had to of been the X-Factor one. Basically she rocked her energy was much higher and she seemd very comfortable in it. She got the crowd into it… I thought it was amazing.
What advice would you give Britney?
I would tell her to always have faith and hope for a better future. Keep doing what you love and find true happiness within yourself, because money and fame will NOT bring a long term joy. Basically… keep truckin =)
Some of the biggest singer/songwriters in pop history have visited “American Idol” over the past few seasons: Mariah Carey, Dolly Parton, Neil Diamond, Tony Bennett, Jon Bon Jovi and even Bono.
But while judge Simon Cowell said during a conference call Wednesday (December 17) that the show has never been able to nail down the one mentor it has tried to get “every year” to help the kids on the show — ex-Beatle Paul McCartney — he has big hopes for this year’s slate of mentors. Specifically, he has one name in mind that he would love to see on the marquee: Britney Spears.
“She would, literally, be first on the list as far as I’m concerned in any capacity,” Cowell said. He didn’t actually divulge who would appear as mentors/performers for the upcoming season — which kicks off January 13 — but he said the door is open any week for Britney to drop in. “I would love to see her mentor the contestants, but if she doesn’t want to do that, and she wants to come on the show and perform, I would welcome her anytime.”
Part of the reason Cowell is so open to Spears stopping by is that when she appeared on his British talent show “X-Factor” recently, “The buzz we had on our show when she came on was extraordinary. And even with all the stuff that’s gone on with her the past two years, there was more excitement and interest in her than I’ve seen in anyone in years. She would be very, very welcome.”
McCartney and Spears are at the top of the list, but Cowell said he’d also love to have another recent “X-Factor” guest make her way to “Idol”: Beyoncé. “We just recently had Beyoncé on the British version of the show. … [She] was absolutely incredible. … You want those kinds of artists. I’d like people with personalities.”
He also opened the door for a couple of past judges/mentors he’d like to see come back: Lionel Richie and filmmaker Quentin Tarantino.
