Britney Spears Pulls Out All the Stops for Video Premier

Britney Spears premiered her newest videos for her song "Hold It Against Me" tonight and she made the most of the event. The post video event had special guests Pauly D. of Jersey Shore and Brian Friedman, the choreographer of the video. Spears has been teasing fans for two weeks with sneak peaks from the video which features her in multiple costumes. Fans seemed to really like the video and it was a great step forward for Spears.

Radiohead is all set to release their new album, The King of Limbs, which will be made available for digital download starting this Saturday. The band made the announcement on their website over the weekend with a message to their fans that said "Thank you for waiting."

This album will be the band's first since their 2007 release "In Rainbows". The band promises something much different from their last album. Though the digital version goes on sale this weekend, the physical package won't be available until May 9. The CD release is going to be much pricer and will contain a CD, to 10" vinyl records and apparently quite a few sheets of artwork.

Lady Gaga's "Born This Way"

People are calling Lady Gaga's newest single "Born This Way" the new gay anthem and with lyrics like Don't be a drag, just be a queen" and "No matter gay, straight or bi/ Lesbian, transgendered life/ I'm on the right track, baby/ I was born to survive," it's hard to argue with that statement. I've heard a lot of opinions about the new song and I wanted to hear some of your opinions, for those of you who have heard it.

Personally I think it's kind of a step backwards for her. Listening to the song on the radio, you wouldn't know it's Lady Gaga if you hadn't heard about it already. It's missing that signature Lady Gaga "wtf factor". It sounds like it could be anybody. It sounds like The Spice Girls, or Madonna. It sounds like she traded in musical interest in this song and just went with provoking lyrics. And seriously, what's with showing up to the Grammy's in an egg??

Travis Barker Premiers his Collaboration With Lil Wayne

Once again Weezy is in the headlines, this time making news with one of my favorite artists, Travis Barker. The former Blink-182 drummer invited critics to come listen to his first solo album "Can a Drummer Get Some?". The title track from the album features verses by Rick Ross, Swizz Beats, and of course, Lil Wayne.

Barker said their collaboration really began at last year's Grammy's when he joined Weezy, Eminem, and Drake for their performance of "Forever". He said that they would often just break into beats and the rappers would freestyle and it was just an all around great time. I know I'm looking forward to hearing Barker's whole album and am looking forward to more collaboration between Barker and Wayne.

Details Emerge about Lady Gaga's New Video

Not much has been revealed about Lady Gaga's Newest Video "Born This Way" until now. Details are beginning to leak out about the video are starting to leak out. A source told that the video was Lady Gaga's love letter to the homosexual community. Gaga has been editing the video for the first week of February in Greenwich Hotel in New York City.

The video took about 4 days to film in New York City and it features Gaga in a range of roles including quite a bit of gender-bending, not something new to Gaga. The video was directed by Jonas Akerlund who also just finished working on the new Brittney Spears "Hold It Against Me" which has been causing quite a bit of buzz.

Gaga is ready to debut the video on Friday, two days earlier than expected, and she will perform the song at the Grammy's on Sunday.

Linkin Park Sounding Good on SNL

Last week when asked about their upcoming performance on Saturday Night Live that took place this Saturday night and they promised a show that would be "unique". They were right as we all found out when we watched their performance which featured video screens, laser lights, and some black and white imagery. Linkin Park is working extra hard at the moment to put their best foot forward as they promote their newest album, "A Thousand Suns". The album took them 2 years to make and they endured a lot of criticism about the quality of the album but now their biggest hit from the album is doing well in the charts. Their appearance and high-energy show on Saturday Night Live can only help them promote their new album. We wish them the best of luck!
