Is Britney Spears The Sexiest Looking Mermaid?

She’s certainly making a case for herself! Britney posted a photo to her Instagram account with her two boys, 9-year old Sean and 8-year old Jayden, while laying by the pool.

We can’t help but notice that Britney’s been in great shape lately, probably due to her rocking BRITNEY: PIECE OF ME shows at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. Dancing can definitely be a workout, especially since she’s been doing this for more than a year and a half now. And while the show is slated to end in December (it was initially a 2-year residency deal), Britney is not quite sure which direction to take it.
 
Marc Malkin from eonline asked Britney about her plans at the recent Teen Choice Awards regarding renewal plans, if any. “I’m not really sure,” she said. “I haven’t made up my mind. I really love doing the show. It’s a lot, a lot of fun but I’m kind of torn right now. I don’t really know what I want to do.”
 
All we know is that the show has been great to her career as well as her image.
 
And hey, if those plans don’t work out, maybe she can become a yoga instructor!

Iggy Azalea And Britney Spears: Pretty Girls Fighting?

The Pretty Girls music video may have us believing that Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea are gal pals in an industry where not many of those are found, but it sure looks like that friendship has gone for a toss now.
 

After the Pretty Girls video was labeled the flop of the summer, it seems like Iggy and Britney are having a go at each other over social media.
 
Now, a No. 29 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 may seem like a really big deal to most artists, but for those like Britney and Iggy, the ranking is a joke. So yes, Pretty Girls didn’t quite take off the way they thought it would and even fans of both the entertainers will agree that the song didn’t really have a lot of oomph to begin with.
 
Well, whatever the reason may be, the song didn’t do well and that could have been the end of it. After all, not every collaboration works and not every song with two hit artists always turns out to be a smash.
 
Only, the issue started to snowball into another matter altogether after Iggy chose to respond to a tweet.
 


 
These tweets certainly looked like Iggy was blaming Britney for not promoting the song enough, considering the Australian rapper was “just featured” in the song. Now, this knock didn’t go down well with Britney’s fans and Iggy, in defending her comment, sent in another one that sounded a bit too rude.
 


 
The tweets caught the attention of many and soon, the Internet was buzzing with news of how Iggy had laid the blame for the flop of Pretty Girls on Britney.
 
To add fuel to the fire, Britney chimed in.
 


 
This tweet of course couldn’t really be held accountable as one that was in direct response to Iggy’s tweets, but that was how it was perceived.
 
Then, it was Iggy’s turn again. This time, instead of making badass comments, the rapper chose to explain her side of the story through multiple tweets, trying to put to rest the alleged beef as well as explaining how female artists were being subjected to unnecessary ridicule in the media.
 


 
Well, the general opinion is that the 25-year old could have shown a little more respect towards Britney, an artist who is from a generation that literally opened several avenues for artists like Iggy through their hard work. If it weren’t for artists like Britney, the music world would still be a tough nut to crack for newcomers, especially female artists.
 
Iggy has always had a bad run on social media and had even gone on an online sabbatical not so long ago. Guess the break didn’t really teach her the secret of staying away from online controversies!

 

 

Britney Spears – The Matchmaker?

David Krawsek and Woody Arenas are a gay couple who fell in love and are now married, and for all this, they have Britney Spears to thank! It all began during Britney’s Las Vegas show ‘Piece of Me’ in December 2013. David and Woody met each other at the show, thanks to the common love they share for the pop diva, and in spite of having to cope with the pressures and challenges of a long distance relationship, they managed to bring their relationship to a place that simply screamed marriage!
 
And that’s what they did! Only, they chose to come back to the place they first met and had a beautiful ceremony at the entrance of the Las Vegas AXIS auditorium where it all started. The day they chose to marry each other was special too – their first anniversary!
 

The vows were special with David beautifully saying, “I promise to catch spiders in the house, kiss you when you’re upset, touch your butt and buy you pizza.”
 
Of course, going with the Las Vegas spirit, their minister Roland August was a mini-celebrity too, having appeared as the minister dressed as Elvis Priestly in Katy Perry’s Waking Up in Vegas video. Even August couldn’t hold back his joy at seeing the gay couple dedicating their lives to each other and had some beautiful words of his own during the ceremony. “I love doing same-sex weddings because when you were growing up, this wasn’t a lifestyle choice, this was a lifestyle that chose you. It made you stronger men for having to forge your own personality when there wasn’t a gay guy G.I. Joe that you could emulate. Look how far we’ve come. We’re out today honoring you in front of everybody. This is what makes the world go round – people falling in love every day,” said August.
 
The best message of the day was yet to come though and soon enough, David and Woody were in for a pleasant surprise as Britney herself supported their marriage and wished them all the best in life, even saying she was proud to be a part of their story of love. “Hi, David and Woody. I’m so excited to have you back at my show where the two of you met on the first night on opening night in 2013. I’m honored to be a part of your love story. Congratulations and all the best for an amazing life together,” said Britney in a video she made especially for the couple. The pop sensation even mentioned the story on Twitter!
 


 
As for David and Woody, they couldn’t be happier that their love story has Britney in it. After coping with a long distance relationship, the two are now finally together and the wedding in Las Vegas will always be a cherished memory!

Britney Spears Is Loving Her Life!

Britney Spears has three men in her life right now and she’s loving it! While her boys, nine-year old Sean Preston and eight-year old Jayden James have been making it all worthwhile for years now, the latest man to enter her life – 32-year old Charlie Ebersol – seems to be taking everything to the next level! Here’s the story.
 

Thanks @JeffLipsky for taking such a beautiful photo of my boys and me! New @Peoplemag cover out this week!

The April issue of People magazine has Britney and her two boys looking oh-so-cute together in their mansion in California and inside, Britney shares intimate details of her life, including some juicy details on her relationship with her boyfriend Charlie. It has been only around six months since the two have been seeing each other but already, Charlie has not only become a huge part of the successful singer’s life, but is really bonding well with the boys.
 

“I’m the happiest I’ve ever been,” Britney says, and those are uplifting words indeed! The singer has had more than her fair share of troubles over the years, the 33-year old mother of two has now turned things around. The last few months have been especially kind to her and Britney reveals how a major reason behind her strong relationship with Charlie has been his relationship with the kids. “They relate to him really well and they have fun together. He’s refreshing to be around and really lighthearted,” she revealed.
 
Speaking of love, Britney spoke of how it is a difficult emotion to fathom. “Love is a hard one. I don’t really understand love as far as relationships. With my kids, it’s just unconditional and that’s hard to find,” she said. But she certainly believes in giving herself another chance! When asked if she would give marriage another go, in spite of two divorces behind her, Britney said she would and put it beautifully saying, “I would love to. I believe in the fairytale.”
 
Although Britney has opened up about her relationship, one look at the story via Instagram is surely worth it too! The pictures are so beautiful and truly show just how important a part Charlie now plays in Britney’s, as well as her boys’, lives. In the meantime, enjoy these beautiful pictures!

Britney Spears and Steven Tyler Reunite at the Super Bowl After 14 Years

You would have to be a little on the older side to remember watching the Super Bowl performance Britney Spears and Steve Tyler put up at the halftime show of the 2001 Super Bowl. Even if you don’t, we are sure you must have heard about the performance.
 

 
Well, the two entertainers met at the Super Bowl again this time, though they were only there to watch the game, not perform – Katy Perry took care of things on that front.
 
Meeting old friends or colleagues is always a pleasure and when you have something as great and memorable as a Super Bowl performance to remember each other by, it gets even better. When Britney ran into Steve at the Super Bowl XLIX this time around, the two hit it off again, just as they did onstage several years ago.

Clicking a couple of photographs was of course a mandatory move and so was sharing them on social media with their fans, which was exactly what the celebrities did! Steve posted his image of Britney giving him a peck on his cheeks on to Twitter with the words, “JUST GIMME A KISS…BRIT… #2001HALFTIMESHOW #WALKTHISWAY #REUNITED” while Britney posted her own photograph of the chance meeting to her Instagram account with the words, “Just ran into this guy @iamstevent #SuperBowl #reunited #2001halftimeshow,”.

Steven Tyler and Britney Spears at Super Bowl XLIX


 
In 2001, Britney had swayed the crowds at the Super Bowl with many of her hits while she took over the stage in the middle of the field with Steve and his band Aerosmith. The list of performances that day also included ‘N Sync and therefore Justin Timberlake, who was then Britney’s boyfriend. Her most popular hits back then included Baby One More Time and Oops! I Did It Again. Well, now that we mention these songs, it sure does seem like a long time ago! Well, it was a great performance even so, and a great time for both artists who were then on top of their game then.
 
Thank you, Britney Spears and Steve Tyler, for some amazing memories.

Stephanie Moseley and Earl Hayes Dead in Shocking Murder-Suicide

In one of the most horrifying incidents to hit the entertainment world in recent memory, Stephanie Moseley, backup dancer and Hit the Floor star and her husband, rapper Earl Hayes are dead. On Monday, Hayes reportedly shot at his dancer wife 12 times in a jealous rage over her alleged infidelity before turning the gun on himself, all this while he was on FaceTime with boxer Floyd Mayweather.
 
The Los Angeles Police Department has confirmed the incident in a statement saying, “The initial investigation revealed that 34-year-old Earl Warren Hayes shot his wife, 30-year-old Stephanie Elyse Moseley to death and then took his own life. The Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded to the scene and pronounced both Mr. Hayes and Ms. Moseley dead at the scene.”
 

Moseley, a star of the VH1 show Hit the Floor and a well-known backup dancer who has performed for Chris Brown, Beyoncé, Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez and Janet Jackson among others, reportedly had an affair with rapper Trey Songz a couple of years back. Though Hayes and Moseley reconciled, the rapper husband supposedly never got over the incident and often brought it up. Sources close to the couple claim that the two were on their way to breaking up. Hayes’ friend and life coach, Burrel Wilks, however expressed shock revealing how Hayes was never violent. “I’ve had sit downs with both of them so whatever happened behind those doors we’ll never know, but I heard out of her own mouth, he never raised a hand on her so this is kind of stunning,” Wilks said.
 
Yet another shocking twist to the story was the involvement of Floyd Mayweather. Hayes was reportedly FaceTiming Mayweather and complaining to the boxer about his wife’s infidelity just before he shot his wife. Though Mayweather allegedly advised Hayes to leave Moseley, he was shocked when his rapper friend said he was going to gun her down. Mayweather supposedly tried to talk Hayes out of it but Hayes ignored his pleas and eventually took a gun and shot his wife while she was in the bath.
 
The news took everyone by surprise and Moseley’s close friends as well as those who had worked with her took to Instagram and Twitter to express their condolences. Trey Songz was among the first to take to Twitter. “R.I.P babygirl. Once an angel on earth, now watching over us from Heaven. You’ll b missed but never forgotten. Love”, he tweeted.
 
Chris Brown posted a picture of himself with Moseley on Instagram and wrote, “RIP baby girl. Danced with me on tour and was always the coolest person. My prayers go out to you and HAZE family.” Eva Marcille Pigford, a close friend of Moseley spoke to KTLA about the loss. “Stephanie was an absolute angel. She really was. She brought so many people into my life. She’s connected so many people. She’s just loved. She will never, ever, ever, ever be forgotten,” she said.
 
 

Kesha Files Lawsuit Against Her Producer For Sexual Abuse

Singer Kesha, whose full name is Kesha Rose Sebert, is accusing record producer, Lukasz “Dr. Luke” Gottwald of rape as well as exerting “suffocating control” over her personal and business life for more than 10 years.
 
It all started when Sebert was an 18-year-old high school student in Nashville, Tenn. The lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, states that Sebert, now 28, “was an intelligent, family-oriented, and joyful young woman. Ms. Sebert was enrolled in the prestigious International Baccalaureate (IB) program at her high school, audited classes at the nearby university, and had nearly perfect SAT scores. Ms Sebert excelled academically and had a bright future ahead of her.”
 
Kesha2
 
At this point in her life, Sebert met Gottwald, who encouraged her to quit school and sign with his music production company. That was the beginning of nearly a decade of sexual, physical and emotional abuse. Sebert claims that Gottwald drugged her with GHB (gamma-hydroxybutyrate, known as the date rape drug), and then raped her while she was unconscious.
 
The claim is detailed in the lawsuit: “Ms. Sebert took the pills and woke up the following afternoon, naked in Dr. Luke’s bed, sore and sick, with no memory of how she got there. Ms. Sebert immediately called her mother and made a ‘fresh complaint,’ telling her that she was naked in Dr. Luke’s hotel room, she did not know where the clothes were, that Dr. Luke had raped her, and that she needed to go to the emergency room.”
 
Kesha-Dr-Luke
 
Sebert’s mother blames Gottwald for her daughter’s eating disorder, for which the singer attended a rehab facility early this year, saying that the award-winning producer, who has created more than thirty Top Ten singles, continually belittled the singer’s physical appearance, with insults like comparing her to a refrigerator.
 
In addition to attempting to destroy her self-image, insulting her looks as well as her talent, Sebert says that Gottwald threatened to ruin her if she went public with the abuse. The career of the ‘Tik Tok’ multiplatinum singer was completely under the thumb of the now 41-year-old producer, who drew up contracts that the lawsuit alleges deny Sebert “any meaningful profit from her work due to Dr. Luke’s exploitation of her over the last decade.”
 

Kesha Filing Lawsuit Against Dr… by splashnews
 
Although the star tried to assert her independence, once by hiring an unapproved manager, and another time by refusing to record her second album, the complaint confirms that Sebert has never reported any of the abusive behavior until now. She is looking to void all recording agreements with Gottwald, and to be allowed to freely enter into contracts with other producers and/or recording companies.
 
Gottwald, who has worked with pop stars including Miley Cyrus, Britney Spears, Katy Perry, Pink, Avril Lavigne and Kelly Clarkson, has filed his own counter-suit, claiming that not only does Sebert’s lawsuit constitute defamation, but that it is solely due to a contract dispute. He claims that Sebert wants out of a valid six-recording exclusive contract, which the platinum-selling artist signed with him when she was a complete unknown.
 
Kesha
 
His lawsuit states that “As part of the effort to get out of the Gottwald Recording Agreement, Kesha and Pebe [Kesha’s mother] have also orchestrated a campaign of publishing false and shocking accusations against Gottwald to extort Plaintiffs into letting Kesha out of the Gottwald Recording Agreement.” It further says Sebert and her mother have published defamatory statements of physical and mental abuse “that [they] themselves admitted are false.”
 
In a statement to TMZ, Sebert’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, explained Sebert’s action, saying: “This lawsuit is a wholehearted effort by Kesha to regain control of her music career and her personal freedom after suffering for ten years as a victim of mental manipulation, emotional abuse and an instance of sexual assault at the hands of Dr. Luke. The facts presented in our lawsuit paint a picture of a man who is controlling and willing to commit horrible acts of abuse in an attempt to intimidate an impressionable, talented, young female artist into submission for his personal gain. Kesha is focused on moving her life and her career beyond this terrible time.”
