Britney Spears releases Work Bitch

You want a hot body? You want a Bugatti? You want a Maseratti… You better work bitch… Those are the lyrics by pop superstar, Britney Spears. It will become an anthem for many, as we make our way towards the December holidays. In the southern hemisphere most people head down to the coastal regions to enjoy some fun in the sun and that means taking off your shirts, putting on your bikinis and board shorts… Like she says, you better work bitches 😉

Lets be honest, Britney has definitely bounced back. She’s worked hard on her image, her sound, her appearance and she’s looking gorgeous in this video. It’s nice to see her putting her dance moves into action again. Cool video by director Ben Mor. Share your thoughts in the comment box below.

Sidebar, fifteen years ago the star released her debut single Baby One More Time… I remember it clearly, gosh how time flies.

Ne-Yo in South Africa with Malibu Red

This week has been good. I got to chat to the guys from Mi Casa ahead of their big performance for President Obama on Monday. I also got to chat to Ne-Yo, who happens to one of my favourite artists. He’s super talented and let me tell you, in person, he’s so awesome. Friendly, forthcoming, intelligent and just the sort of dude you’d like to hang out with.

He was here in his capacity as Creative Director for the new range of Malibu called Malibu Red. Last night I hit up the red carpet event at The Venue in Johannesburg. Some of SA’s finest were in attendance walking the carpet as was Ne-Yo. Check out the highlights above – and stay tuned for more on my one-on-one interview coming soon (when I can finally convert the format to something workable).
