Britney standom is in total chaos today as Black Eyed Piss frontman, no.1.wants, officially revealed that he will serve as the executive producer on Britney’s 8th studio album.
If you read the article, he clearly states:
“…not producing and writing every song, but to be an executive producer on the songs.”
This doesn’t mean every song is going to be a rehash of their previous collaborations, there’s still going to be Dr. Puke and Diplo productions and what not, it just means that he gets to oversee the entire project.
He also goes on to say:
“We can’t do another song about going on the dance floor. Really? Didn’t we see a bunch of Britney doing that already? Don’t we want to see something that comes from her heart?”
Now, I could always use a “Britney on the dancefloor” tune and I’m sure we’ll get a few, but it’s time someone shifts gears on Britney’s career and has her bring something new to the table, don’t ya think? Besides, do you really think she’s going to flip the script entirely? Highly unlikely.
Last but not least, let me remind you that one of Femme Fatale’s best cuts was “Big Fat Bass”. The track was so fresh, even for a masterpiece such as Femme Fatale. I won’t even dive into that one song they did called “Scream And Shout” cause we all know what a flop that was.
Bring it will.i.am, my body is ready.
He still is trash and I'll hate him forever, along with his music and the BEP, but then again, I decided to give him a chance since he wants to try something interesting for Brit's new album. Also, I love BFB and S&S grew so much on me (not to mention the fact that is was a worldwide hit :D). I for one am not worried. Brit never disappoints.

Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan's crime thriller The Fall will premiere on BBC Two on Monday, May 13 at 9pm, it has been confirmed.
The highly-anticipated series, which also stars Archie Panjabi (The Good Wife), Hollyoaks trio Gerard McCarthy, Emmet Scanlan and Bronagh Waugh, and Niamh McGrady (Upstairs Downstairs), was written by Allan Cubitt (The Runaway, Prime Suspect).
Anderson stars as DSI Stella Gibson, who is brought to Belfast from the London Met to find a killer. Dornan stars as killer Paul Spector, who has a dark fascination with solicitor Sarah Kay (Laura Donnelly).
The five-part series will air on Netflix in the US. All five episodes of the series will stream on Netflix starting May 28.
BBC drama boss Ben Stephenson said: "The Fall is a unique, forensic and characterful take on a classic genre that continues BBC Two's commitment to original British drama.
"Cubitt's rich and complex psychological thriller combined with another compelling performance from Gillian Anderson will keep viewers on the edge of their seats."
CBS' soap The Young and the Restless earned a leading 23 Daytime Emmy nominations on Wednesday, including three of the four competitors for best actor, while ABC rival General Hospital had 19 nominations.
The 40th annual Daytime Emmy awards will be held June 16 in Beverly Hills, televised for the second year on the cable network HLN.

Her love life is constantly whispered about in gossip columns.
But on Saturday, January cleared her plans to make time for one very important lunch date with the most important man in her life - 19 month old son Xander.
The pair were spotted going out for lunch in Los Feliz, California.
January wore vintage wash bootleg jeans, a tie-dye t-shirt and some brown thong sandals.
She finished off the look with a straw trilby and some dark sunglasses to shield her from the sun.
Xander also cut a fashionable figure in little boat shoes, checked shorts and a grey vest.
They then headed to a gelato bar to get a treat in the Californian sunshine.
Whilst the paternity of Xander is still shrouded in mystery, there's certainly one famous parent he takes after.
With equally fair locks and the same striking eyes, the toddler is looking more like his mum every day.
However, as he gets older, questions regarding who his father is won't disappear.
And whilst others might offer sympathy, January has remained adamant that she enjoys raising him alone.
She told Glamour magazine: 'People keep saying, "Oh poor you, being a single mum". But I don’t want to be pitied. I can do anything I want to do. I work, I date, I have friends. I have time for everything I had time for before. I just have an added amazing thing in my life.
'I don’t think being a single mum is something I need to feel sorry about or need to go to group therapy over. It’s really a joy in my life and that’s it.'
Hayden Panettiere, Nashville
Although Panettiere's sassy and sexy Juliette Barnes was initially presented as a superficial threat to Rayna James' country empire, Juliette quickly became the most layered (and fun) character on the show. Panettiere surprised us with her vocal chops, whether doing a simple acoustic solo or performing in front of thousands, but she really wowed us with the emotional vulnerability she brought to what could have been a trite story line involving her mother's addiction. Sure, Juliette can still be a brat, but thanks to Panettiere's raw, honest performance, we often find ourselves taking her side of the argument.

Millions of FHM readers voted for the sexiest woman in the world.
12 months ago, FHM announced that Tulisa Contostavlos - of N-Dubz, X Factor and sex tape fame - had officially been voted the World’s Sexiest Woman by the readers.
Millions of you – took to the streets (or at least the internet) to voice your outrage. It was front-page news on every tabloid newspaper. So many people clicked on FHM.com that our server crashed three times. FHM received letters, emails, tweets and letter bombs denouncing the result. How could – in a world of 3,301,112,087 women – Tulisa possibly be the world’s hottest?
Our answer was simple: Democracy. 99% of those who threw their toys out of the pram did not cast a vote. If they had, things could have been very different.
This year, they were. Across three long months of polling FHM received more votes than ever before. And the result? The most competitive, and the most trouser-shatteringly sexy 100 Sexiest countdown of all time.

Britney Spears has “cut all ties” to and “won’t return calls” from Demi Lovato after leaving “X Factor,” claims a source (aka Demi Lovato)
Is poor talented Demi Lovato getting the cold shoulder from former gloriefied pop star Britney Spears?
According to the National Enquirer, the former pop star has been ignoring her fellow co-worker and has basically cut all ties with her by not answering her calls or returning them!
"Brit was so upset 'X Factor' producers had cooled on her - but kept Demi on - that she X'd out her 'X Factor' pal," Jamie Lynn reportedly told the tabloid. The story also suggested that Britney's rejection could possibly "send Demi around the bend." (ugly self-harming/ rehab reference)
All of this could easily be true, there's basically more jealousy in Hollywood than anywhere else,.
Do you think there's really beef between Britney and Demi? Would Brit deliberately ignore her?

There's something in the air. Or the water. Or the ether. Or wherever something would have to be to somehow influence the TV landscape for a hot minute. One theme/plot point is popping up all over television right now, and that theme is virginity. Virgins! They're everywhere.
Sunday night brought us two divergent tales of virginity: The devastatingly sexy and apparently sexually gifted Jon Snow on Game of Thrones broke his vow of celibacy with beautiful snow lady Ygritte, while dweeby and anxious Ginsberg on Mad Men openly confessed to his date that he'd never had sex. (And given his demeanor, it didn't seem like that was about to change any time soon.) Yesterday afternoon, Yahoo announced it was launching a web series called "Losing Your Virginity with John Stamos," wherein celebrities will tell the stories of their first times. Last night's New Girl traced how each of the characters lost his or her virginity, from Cece's wild night with Mick Jagger to Winston's magical night with a woman who turned out to be a prostitute. And last night's Awkward had Jake and Tamara losing their virginities to one another. In a few weeks, virginity
is a minor plot point on an episode of The Big C, too. So much deflowering!
And so much, well, good deflowering, for lack of a better term. For some people — characters and real people alike! — virginity is a huge, huge deal, and they want their first time to be with someone they love love love who loves them back. For others, it's just not as significant: a rite of passage, sure, but not the be-all and end-all. For some it's more of a nuisance, and for some it's an incredibly fraught proposition, one that's more anxiety-inducing than anything else in their lives up to that point. And we're actually seeing that range of experience on TV right now, which defies pretty much everything I know about TV's sexual politics, which tends to punish women for demonstrating sexual agency and ridicule men who demonstrate anything other than total sexual prowess.
Rest at the source
Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow have been hoping to get Tony Stark’s ladylove Pepper Potts into some armor ever since the second Iron Man movie, fulfilling the character’s comic book evolution from the damsel in distress to the high-powered heroine known as Rescue. With Iron Man 3, it finally happens. “It’s sort of the comic-book version of a Cinderella story,” Paltrow says of her character’s four-film arc. “She starts timid and sort of cleaning up after Tony, and then she evolves into full strength and a superhero.”
But there’s a chance that her first time in the suit may also be her last …
In this week’s cover story, Entertainment Weekly explores a question that everyone who sees Iron Man 3 this weekend will be asking: Is this the end?
Downey has fulfilled all his contractual obligations to play the hero that made him a blockbuster star, and there’s currently no Iron Man 4 on Marvel’s slate, which spans the next several years. Everyone involved — including Downey himself — expects he’ll at least return for writer-director Joss Whedon’s Avengers 2 in 2015, but Iron Man 3 doesn’t exactly leave the billionaire/playboy/philanthropist that we know and love in mint condition.
Iron Man 3 plays rough with Marvel’s Most Valuable Superhero, which allowed director and co-writer Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) to go for broke with a whole host of story points, including finally getting Pepper into the armor, and presenting a twisted version of Stark’s most infamous villain, The Mandarin (portrayed by Ben Kingsley.) “I thought we needed to do something in the third movie to make it feel like a game-changer,” Black says.
The cover story also comes with an extensive look at all of Marvel’s post-Avengers Phase Two slate of movies, with details on the status of each of the studios upcoming projects: Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Avengers 2, Ant-Man, and beyond.
The Marvel Studios chief Feige spills new details about the stories, and dispels some of the false rumors about what’s in the pipeline.
Some online rumors turn out to be true, however. A source confirms to EW that the twin characters Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch will be joining The Avengers 2, which Whedon hinted at recently when he said he was writing a brother-sister duo into the movie. Feige maintains a poker face on that scoop, saying only: “I’m not confirming or denying. The draft could change six months from now.”
Fans may still hyperventilate over that news. But as long as Downey’s Iron Man is definitely in it, they can also breathe a little easier.

Paramount Hopes New ‘Star Trek’ Is a Global Crowd-Pleaser
For “Star Trek Into Darkness,” the coming $190 million movie from J. J. Abrams, the mission is to boldly go where no Star Trek film has gone before — and get audiences overseas to care.
“Star Trek” may be one of the biggest franchises in Hollywood history, but it has one surprising flaw: Captain Kirk doesn’t travel well. Foreign moviegoers for one reason or another have never fully embraced the swaggering Starfleet captain and his oddball crew. That is a major problem for Paramount Pictures now that international ticket sales account for up to 80 percent of a movie’s total gross.
A 2009 effort to revive the Star Trek movie series was a smash hit in North America, taking in about $280 million, after adjusting for inflation. But box-office analysts were deeply disappointed by the film’s foreign box office total of $139 million.
So Paramount has revved up its engines to warp speed for “Into Darkness,” which is already playing in some countries and will arrive in the United States on May 17. The Viacom-owned studio has increased its international marketing budget for the film by 35 percent over that for the 2009 film, asked stars to do an unusual amount of globetrotting and staggered the release dates to shield “Into Darkness” from competition.
Paramount’s bid to draw in more foreign ticket buyers even extended to casting decisions and the script, which turns on a more terrestrial story. “Into Darkness” finds the Enterprise crew called back home, where a terror force has infiltrated the Starfleet organization.
“The team has really been in the weeds, so to speak, going country by country and looking at every possible opportunity,” Brad Grey, Paramount’s chairman, said of the studio’s marketers in particular. “On a profit level, focusing on your shareholders, this is now how detailed you have to be on pictures of this scope and scale.”
Mr. Grey added, “Between J. J. outdoing himself and our efforts to build up our global distribution system, I’m very, very confident that the franchise is finally going to live up to its potential.” In 2009, “Star Trek” may have been a disappointment outside North America, but it also represented enormous progress. The preceding film in the franchise, “Star Trek: Nemesis” in 2002, took in a grand total of $31 million overseas.
But Paramount and its financing and producing partner, Skydance Productions, are counting on “Into Darkness” to do much better — perhaps delivering a 100 percent increase over the 2009 movie’s overseas gross. The studio has little room for error. Hollywood’s major studios will release as many as eight movies each over the summer, but Paramount will issue only two: “Into Darkness” and the risky “World War Z,” an intense zombie thriller starring Brad Pitt.
Pure science fiction has long been a difficult sell overseas, where audiences generally prefer space movies that have more fantasy elements, like “Star Wars.” The Star Trek movies, at least until Mr. Abrams came along to direct the 2009 version, also lacked eye-popping visual effects, leaning more on makeup tricks and drama on the bridge of the Enterprise.
Six “Star Trek” television shows, all notable for their kitsch, have been dubbed and distributed overseas, creating a solid (albeit older) fan base. But the TV show also hurts Paramount’s big-screen efforts, adding to a perception that the franchise is an impenetrable universe of characters and story lines.
The 2009 film, which featured a young cast but no proven stars, was in some ways torpedoed by Paramount’s own distribution decisions. Four other big releases — “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” “Angels & Demons,” “Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian” and “Terminator Salvation” — all opened in the same period, giving “Star Trek” little time to find its way.
This time, Paramount has decided on a staggered rollout, releasing “Into Darkness” in Australia, Germany, Britain and Mexico before the United States and Canada, and holding the movie back elsewhere. It will not arrive in Japan until August, for instance. Unlike the 2009 chapter, “Into Darkness” is planned for distribution in China. All told, Paramount will stage red carpet premieres in seven countries.
Cast members and producers have been crisscrossing the globe for months as part of advance marketing efforts. Chris Pine, who plays Capt. James Kirk, was dispatched to Tokyo in December to unveil a nine-minute trailer. More recently, Bryan Burk, an “Into Darkness” producer, went on an 11-city foreign tour — South America, Asia, Europe — to show 35 minutes of the movie, almost a third of it, to journalists and exhibitors.
Paramount went out of its way to cast foreign actors, in particular adding the British star Benedict Cumberbatch as the villain. And writers tried to produce a self-contained plot that would be exciting to loyal Star Trek fans but not put off people who know nothing about the franchise, which now includes 12 movies. (Research showed that foreign ticket buyers viewed the 2009 film as “too Trekkie and too sci-fi,” in the words of one Paramount executive.)
“Classically people think that it’s a space film, but this one is a very earthbound story,” Mr. Pine recently said at a convention for theater owners.
Judging by advance excerpts Paramount has shown, the studio has added some superhero touches; Mr. Pine, for instance, dons a space suit and zooms through an asteroid field in a sequence that resembles an “Iron Man” moment.
The “Iron Man” movies, as Paramount knows, having distributed the first two, are enormously popular overseas.
The first film was too Trekkie and too sci-fi? I just can't with this comment.
Ireland Baldwin is embarking on her career as a model, but the 17-year-old blond beauty is already a social media superstar.
In fact, Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger's daughter is so prolific on Twitter (and so sometimes-sexy, sometimes self-effacing on Instagram), that she actually met her boyfriend, stand-up paddleboarder Slater Trout, somewhere in the midst of all the online chatter.
In the June issue of Vanity Fair, Ireland confirms she and Slater, 18, met through "mutual flirting efforts on the Internet," explaining that Twitter is "a modern-day public diary of your thoughts. You have to be careful, but at the same time it's kind of fun not to be too careful."
Part of Ireland's charm is that despite having Kim's good looks and Alec's wit, she still manages to seem down to earth. One of the reasons behind that? Well, she hasn't always been the picture of confidence.
"I went through a lot in middle school, and you always try so many different looks and try to be so many different people," she explained. "I finally realized I'm awkward, I'm lanky, and I'm going to embrace it—make fun of myself and just laugh"
But Ireland does take her career seriously, and she's willing to work at it. "For any kid raised under the circumstances I was raised—having a famous family—people often think you have everything laid out for you and you don't need to work," she said. "But everyone has to work for what they want, and everybody has to make a name for themselves."
Kanye West interrupted Taylor Swift's acceptance speech for the Best Female Video award at the MTV VMAs way back in 2009, but the incident seems to be still on the mind of his friend Jay-Z.
In '100$ Bill', Jay-Z's contribution to The Great Gatsby soundtrack, he raps that he "took that Taylor Swift to a hundred fucking million, bitch! I wish I could continue but... [laughs]". West himself has previously claimed that his interruption caused Swift to "have 100 magazine covers and sell a million first week".
At the time of the 2009 incident, a Rolling Stone journalist with backstage access reported that Swift was seen "hysterically crying". Swift's mother confronted West, who gave "a half-hearted apology in which he added he still thought Beyoncé's video was superior". In the event's press room, Swift denied having "any hard feelings" towards West and proclaimed herself a fan of his music. The following day, she discussed the incident during an appearance on The View and later said she had accepted West's "very sincere" apology.
Swift refused to discuss West in subsequent interviews, terminating a radio interview when the host refused to drop the subject: "I'm just honestly trying not to make it into a bigger deal than it already is. It's become more of a big deal than I ever thought it would be. It happened on TV, so everybody saw what happened. I just would like to move on. I've talked about this in one interview, and that was going to be it. It's not something I feel like we need to keep talking about."
However, after an initial truce, things turned nasty again in 2010. West remarked that it was "inaccurate" for Swift's Fearless to have been named Album of the Year at the Grammy Awards earlier that year. He said he failed to see what was "so arrogant" about his VMA interruption and described his actions as "selfless". He argued it was "just disrespectful" and "retarded" for Swift to be included in the same award category as Beyoncé. He added that "if it was the other way around" and Swift were an established artist who had "made the video of her career, do you think she would have lost to a brand new artist? Hell no!" Also that month, he claimed that, "If I wasn't drunk, I would have been on stage longer ... Taylor never came to my defense at any interview. And rode the waves and rode it and rode it".
Swift responded by performing "Innocent" at the 2010 VMAs. The Washington Post described the song as "a small masterpiece of passive aggressiveness, a vivisection dressed up as a peace offering". Other critics found Swift's performance overly serious and petty.
As recently as February 2013, West dissed Swift on stage: "Taylor Swift beat Beyoncé at the Grammys? Beyoncé be dancing in heels and s***."
