96-1


Guess who I’m blogging about again?? Britney Spears… in news just in the previous pop wreck is now back to her pop STAR status, climbing a massive 96 spots of the official Billboard Top 100 to the coveted NUMBER 1 position. This is the first time in almost ten years that Spears has done something like this. The last time was when she released her debut single “Baby One More Time” in January 1999. GO BRIT!!!

Britney’s back


News just in… Ms Britney Spears will release her 6th studio album on the 2nd of December, which also happens to be her birthday. The album will be entitled “Circus” which is probably fitting for all that she has been through in the last two years. I’m glad she’s bouncing back (3VMAs), looking super-fly and I reckon this album will put her back at the top where she belongs. GO BRIT.

More on the album:
– the first single is called “Womanizer” which will be released sometime next week in the US (Apparently the 22nd)
– The new album features collaborations with Max Martin, Dr. Luke, Danja, Bloodshy & Avant And More

There are also rumours about Britney calling on Pharell and Ne-Yo to help produce some tracks too, but more on that to follow.

I’m really stoked for Britney… I think many were counting down the days until the end of princess Brit. Luckily she’s back, safe and ready to take on the world again! Maybe Amy “nUtty, druggie” Winehouse can learn a thing or two about Brit… time will tell. In the mean time, here’s a little video of Britney rehearsing with her dancers for your viewing pleasure 🙂 Oh and Brit has topped the list of most searched celeb in the world (again).

Awards


AWARD season has popped up again, and this time it’s the chance of the film and television stars. The 63rd annual Golden Globe will take place on the 16th of January 2006 in Beverly Hills. The nominees were announced yesterday… My predictions:
1. Charlize… AGAIN. This lady is top class
2. Heath Ledger. This Ozzie lad is expected to take the Golden Globe. Should he win that, he’s definately in the running for the Oscar. Check out the film Brokeback Mountain
3. ABC‘s Lost and Desperate Housewives are both in there. Tricky- the both rock
4. Tsotsi– GO SA again. So in two award shows, South Africa or South Africans have been nominated. Well done to Ladysmith Black Mambazo again for their second Grammy nomination. Perhaps they’ll notch up their second award…

We’ll have to wait and see on January 16th. PS Work is sooooooo slow again. Jen have a look at the comment under the Usher post to see a short list of things to do in Joburg… Later

Whose it gonna be?

And the nominees for the 48th Annual Grammy Awards are…
So how did my predictiopns fare?
1. Mariah Carey leads with seven nominations. Songs taken off her platinum selling album “The Emancipation of Mimi”
2. Lead vocalist for rock band No Doubt’s Gwen Stefani, who’s gone out on her own is second with no less than 5 nominations. Songs off the album “Love Angel Music Baby”
3. Oh and who could forget the wonderful and brilliant Kelly Clarkson… Two nominations for her. Go Kel!!!
