VMA’s Preview August 26th, 2011
VMA’s Preview

The 28th Annual VMA's will be taking place this Sunday at Los Angeles' Nokia Theater. The award show has always been a highlight of the year for pop fanatics. The biggest names in music come together under one roof to, well, go crazy. The award show has always been remembered for its outrageous moments. I mean who could forget Micheal Jackson's surprise appearance during NYSNC's 2001 performance, Gaga's bloody performance and meat dress, Kanye storming the stage in 2008, and the various iconic moments delivered by pop princess Britney Spears. I have to admit in recent years the VMAs have lost a bit of its former glory. Years of mediocre performances and bland hosts plagued the awards show resulting in a huge ratings dip. Last year, the award show saw a big turnaround breaking the 10M audience mark for the first time in six years. So what's in store this year? Although the performer roster is smaller than previous year expect the highlights to be: Gaga, Beyonce, and Adele. Another major reason to watch this year would be a tribute to Britney Spears. Although the network has been fairly quiet on what the tribute will entail expect a grandiose spectacle. ...

Concert Review: The Femme Fatale Tour August 12th, 2011
Concert Review: The Femme Fatale Tour

After seeing the "Circus" tour in 2009 I had my own worries about the show. Although the show itself was a triumph, the only sore spot at times was Britney herself. I'm happy to report that isn't the case this time. The show's spectacle is on par with Britney's showmanship and energy. The theme of the show is, you guessed it, a femme fatale. Britney is on the run from a man that has his eyes set on capturing her, but the catch is she isn't just on the run she's out to get him as well. In the opening video the pop icon, gun in hand, runs through alleys and streets until cops finally catch up with her setting the stage for the show opener, Hold It Against Me. The first section of the show was enjoyable as she followed with fan favorite Up 'N Down, Piece of Me, and her #1 hit 3. One of the defining moments of the show was the revival of Gimme More. It marks the first time she's performed the song since the infamous 2007 performance and what a rendition it is. Let's just say Britney pulls off a great modern day Cleopatra in ...

Britney debuts new single “Till The World Ends” March 5th, 2011
Britney debuts new single “Till The World Ends”

Pop culture had quite a week as Britney Spears kicked off promotion for her highly-anticipated album Femme Fatale. Earlier this week, the pop icon's cover for V Magazine, her first American cover in over a year, hit the media. The shoot, shot by the legendary Mario Testino, features Britney in multiple colored photos wearing high-fashion garments by Givenchy, Ralph Lauren, and more. In the interview she revealed that she's over her past obstacles and that "the bitch is back and better than ever". What greater validation but the release of her new single Till The World Ends?! The single, produced by the always infectious team Max Martin & Dr. Luke (with additional production by an amazing newcomer Billboard) is another dance floor stomper. Britney took some time out of her day Friday to visit Ryan Seacrest and formally premiere the euphoric single, after it leaked online on Thursday. In the single Spears sings about dancing until the world ends, and the song itself makes sure that we do. Continuing the elements of dubstep (not as prevelant as Hold It Against Me) the song assures us that the upcoming album will be nothing short than an epic dance affair. While at Seacrest, she ...
