Britney Spears, who will be debuting the music video for her new single Perfume next week, is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of In Style magazine. Unlike Britney‘s recent interviews that don’t really reveal much, homegirl really opens up and divulges a lot of new and surprisingly candid information about her private life. Yes, she talks about the launch of her upcoming Las Vegas concert residency Britney: Piece of Me but it’s the personal stuff that she shares that is most interesting, I think. Also, she looks utterly fabulous in the accompanying photospread. Have a look below at Britney on the cover of In Style, read a few excerpts from her interview and see a couple photos from her lovely spread. More »
Yesterday morning I boarded a Delta play for a 6 hour flight into Honolulu, HI ahead of this weekend’s big marathon race and here I am, reporting to you from paradise. Some of you may recall that I made this very same trek to O’ahu a year ago to run the Honolulu Marathon which was my first marathon ever. I loved the experience so much that I had to return for a second go. I got into town early enough to hit up the marathon expo to pick up my race bib but I spent much of the rest of the day just chillin’. That’s really the goal for this trip, er except for the hours of running on Sunday, I hope to just relax and do as little as possible in one of the most beautiful places on Earth. More »

Yesterday we learned the happy news that Amanda Bynes not only successfully completed her months long stint in rehab but has moved back to her family home and is taking into consideration the possibility of furthering her education in fashion school. Today we get our first look at Amanda as she settles back into her normal home life now that she’s continuing her recovery at home. According to In Touch Weekly magazine, Amanda is busying her days with excursions with her parents Rick and Lynne Bynes and her beloved dogs. It’s great to see and hear of Amanda doing so well after the year she’s had thus far. We can’t know what the future holds for Amanda but we can hope for the best for her. I like the idea of her attending fashion school. The creative outlet could do her wonders. Fingers crossed for a healthy and happy recovery.

Remember last week when the world was so shocked to learn that Brian Griffin, a main character on the long running animated Fox series Family Guy, was killed off on the show that folks started rallying in order to try and get the character back on the series? Well, either those efforts have worked extremely well OR the Family Guy producers have been effing with us all along because today we learn from Entertainment Weekly that Brian will reportedly return to the show later this month. Even more telling that Brian‘s death was never meant to stick comes the revelation that a major comedic actress has already been hired to appear on Family Guy NEXT YEAR as a love interest for Brian Griffin. HMMMMM. It sounds like we’ve all been bamboozled, y’all. More »

Last month our dear Britney Spears shared a photo from the set of the music video of her new single Perfume and today she brings us a quick preview of the finished video. The full music video for the song will be released next week but in the meantime, we get a tiny taste of what’s to come with the just-released :36 second preview clip embedded above. While I can’t say that I’m really diggin’ on the way the video scenes are presented in this preview clip, I am excited to see how the final product turned out. Oh and as for all of that retirement talk we heard yesterday, I’m just going to pretend that IT NEVER HAPPENED. Nope, never happened at all.

It’s that time of the year, and we are about to be bombarded with all of those really cool mash-ups recapping all of the important going-ons. The other day we saw DJ Earworm‘s United State of Pop mash-up of the biggest pop hits of the year, but today we have something different. We’ve had plenty of great conversations on this blog about the portrayal of women in media– Miley Cyrus, Amanda Bynes and many others have given us plenty to talk about. While I don’t agree with every idea expressed in the video (for example, I loved Seth MacFarlane‘s boob song), some great points were definitely made. And I’m looking forward to another year of pop culture/feminist critique with all of you!
