Britney Spears Thinks That It’s Her Job to Look Sexy

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music Videos, Performances, Pop,

Britney SpearsBritney Spears thinks it's her job to look more like a "sex kitten" than she really is.

The 31-year-old star's video for her new single "Work B***h" shows her flaunting her figure in sexy outfits while she whips her dancers and she claims this is a different role to what she plays at home where she is mother to sons eight-year-old Sean and seven-year-old Jayden - who she has with ex-husband Kevin Federline.

"I think it goes with what I do. It's my job to portray more of a sex kitten than what I really am at home with my kids," she said when quizzed on her sex appeal.

The pop star finds her stage persona therapeutic as it nothing like her real life and her performances give her the opportunity to portray a "different character." She explained, "As artists I think people who are really shy - I'm really shy in person - so when I get on stage, it's really good for me to become this different character because it's like therapy for me."

Britney Spears’ Team Briefed to Deny Lip-Synching

Britney SpearsBritney Spears' team have been briefed to cover up her plans to lip-sync during her Las Vegas concert residency.

The "Toxic" hitmakers' managers have created a "cheat sheet" of answers to be given to curious media and fans about her two-year Britney: Piece of Me shows in the US gambling capital, and the document has now been obtained by the New York Daily News newspaper's Confidenti@l section. According to Confidenti@l, the paper features stock answers like, "Yes! She will be singing live!," "Certainly she will be singing live!," "Yes, all vocals will be live!" and "No lip-syncing will happen at the show."

However, the "special notes" section of the sheet indicates otherwise, and contains a note reading, "All vocals will be pre-recorded." It adds that the "live" band "will be pre-recorded also." The document warns staff at Planet Hollywood to "try and stay in the margins of the provided answers and refrain from elaborating replies."

The pop princess will kick off her residency on December 27 and is reportedly being paid $15 million a year.

Britney Spears in

As fans all over go gaga over Britney Spears' latest music video for "Work B***c," it has forced the pop star herself to question her hypersexual image.

In a recent interview with a Boston radio show, the mother of two commented on her experience in the editing room for the making of the music video: "Oh my god, we showed way more skin and did way more stuff for the video then what is actually there. Like, I cut out half the video because I am a mother and because, you know, I have children, and it’s just hard to play sexy mom while you’re being a pop star as well."

Britney Spears Video Banned in UK

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Gossip, Music Videos, Pop, New Releases,

Britney SpearsBritney Spears' "Work Bitch" video has been banned in the UK.

The song not only sees the star say the word "bitch" 19 times, but also displays it written in neon, as well as numerous racy scenes featuring dancers being whipped and in bondage gear, making it unsuitable for broadcast by British TV stations before 10pm. While channels have called for a "clean" edit of the video to show in the day, so far Britney's people haven't decided if they will provide one.

"While the video has gone down a storm online, it's a bit too much to play on TV. Music stations like The Box and MTV have their hands tied," a source said.

Not all the tracks on Britney's forthcoming eighth album will be so racy, as she has also co-written an "emotional" ballad called "Perfume" with Sia - who has been behind hits for Rihanna, David Guetta and Flo Rida - about her life. "'Perfume' is a really personal track and very emotional. This is the first album Britney has completely co-written. It's all about her feelings and experiences and she's very proud of it," the source added.

Miley Cyrus at this year's MTV VMAs

Miley Cyrus claims she made history like Madonna and Britney Spears with her performance at the MTV Video Music Awards. The "We Can't Stop" singer made a provocative appearance at the event in New York City last month wearing a skin coloured latex bikini and "twerking" up to Robin Thicke while sticking her tongue out and posing suggestively with a foam hand, but despite provoking outrage she claims the performance will go down as a pivotal moment in the event's history.

"I don't pay attention to the negative because I have seen this play out. How many times have we seen this play out in pop music? You know now ... you know what's happened. Madonna's done it, Britney's done it. Every VMA performance, anyone that performs ... That's what you are looking for. You want to make history. Me and Robin, the whole time, said, 'You know you are about to make history right now?'" she said in an interview with MTV.

I was so worried I would f**k it up. I was doing some stuff for that yesterday actually. Who knows how it will go. We've written one song and it's a great track and if she likes it then amazing. It was just an honour to be asked," she said previously.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Artist News, Concerts / Tours, Pop,

Britney SpearsBritney Spears was the top earning woman in music this year.

The X Factor judge - who neither released a new album or went on tour in 2012 - raked in an estimated $58 million in just 12 months, according to Forbes magazine.

Most of the 30-year-old popstar's profits - which are just slightly less than the $64 million she earned in 2010 - came from her comeback Femme Fatale tour that grossed $68.7 million worldwide, followed by her Femme Fatale album, in addition to her popular fragrance line with Elizabeth Arden and her endorsement deals.

Music attorney Lori Landew, who helped Britney negotiate her first record deal as a teenager, attempted to explain her huge success despite a few rough years, saying, "Britney has an electricity that connects with audiences on screen and off, and it is that intangible quality that always seems to leave her fans, old and new, breathless."
