Carson Daly on Britney Spears' strict interview conditions: 'It's insane'

You can try Till the World Ends, but you won’t be getting a live, unedited interview with Britney Spears—even if you’ve known her for approximately half her life.

Carson Daly, who first met the now-29-year-old Spears nearly a decade and a half ago during their mutual pre-TRL days, ripped into her management team on his personal Twitter after being asked to pre-tape an interview with her (standard practice right now for the star, who has primarily been conducting interviews via email), and then submit it for approval and editing before air.

In a series of frustrated tweets he wrote:

“I was jst TOLD my @britneyspears interview tomm on @ampradio MUST b pre-recorded & submitted 4 approval by HER mgmt b4 it can air! F THAT!”

never that restricted. Even when I interviewed Michael Jackson, it wasn’t anything like this…it’s really insane.

And to a fellow tweeter who called him an “unprofessional a–hole,” he replied: READ FULL STORY

Enrique Iglesias will not be touring with Britney Spears

Britney Spears’ announcement while performing this morning on ABC’s Good Morning America that she would be touring this summer with Enrique Iglesias seems to have been a bit premature: Iglesias’ reps just released a statement saying that the pair will not be hitting the road together. “Despite initial reports based on formal discussions of the possible run, Enrique will continue on his solo tour in support of his new album Euphoria,” his reps said. “Enrique has great respect for Britney and is a longtime fan of her work. He is very sorry for the confusion this might have caused to anyone.” Britney had originally revealed the news as a “special announcement” from backstage at the morning show, stating that she’d join Iglesias on tour starting in June.

Britney Spears performs on 'GMA' from San Francisco: Does she still have it?

Britney Spears’ Sunday concert from San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Auditorium aired on Good Morning America today. (She was originally slated to perform in front of the historic Castro Theatre, but weather concerns moved her show indoors and out of the famous gay-borhood).

After the ABC morning show rounded up the news of our confusing world (from the U.S. military involvement in Libya to a gorilla choosing March Madness brackets) the GMA hosts took us to something much easier to comprehend: the pure pop power of Britney. Opening with lead single “Hold It Against Me” from her seventh album Femme Fatale — which drops today — the 29-year-old pop princess took her throne (literally) onstage while flanked by leather-clad male dancers/servants. Watch it here: READ FULL STORY

Britney Spears' 'Femme Fatale': A listening guide to all the leaked tracks and snippets!

femme-fatale

Another day, another leak from Britney’s much-anticipated album Femme Fatale! Today, we’re getting the full versions of “(Drop Dead) Gorgeous” and “Inside Out,” plus a snippet (the Britney leaking team just loves a snippet!) of “Gasoline.” You can hear those three all over on Idolator. We here at EW are waiting for the full, mastered versions of everything before we weigh in too much, but I can say this: This album is already rocking my world, based on what we’ve heard. Our official review is forthcoming, of course, and will be timed to release. The interesting thing is that so many of the Femme Fatale tracks have leaked — in fact, some version of each track from the regular release is somewhere out there on the internet. So in the mean time while we wait for the album to drop on March 29 and for a little Friday fun, let’s recap what we’ve heard exactly and where you can listen, based on the official track listing:

Britney Spears says: 'Femme Fatale is my most upbeat and mature album yet.'

Ruven Afanador/Out

With the release of Britney Spears’ much-anticipated seventh studio album, Femme Fatale, less than three weeks away, the pop diva is beginning her round of promotional interviews. Of course, she’ll be doing the Good Morning America thing on Tuesday, March 29, the day the album hits stores. But one of her first print/online interviews is with Out magazine in a story called “Britney E-Mails Her Heart.” The story is slugged that because, as you might guess, the interview was done entirely via email. (Her handlers are obviously still keeping her close, which is no fun.)

Since email interviews allow the subject to really think about what he or she is saying—and the luxury of having a publicist read over and edit anything before it goes back to the journalist—this particular interview didn’t yield the juiciest of quotes of anecdotes. But, what the hell! We’ll bite! She talks her new album, the album she thinks changed the world (you’ll be surprised!), which Golden Girl is her favorite, and lots more. Here are a few of our favorite bits from Britney’s chat with the gay magazine:

When you were starting out, whose career did you want to mold after yours? “Madonna. No question. She is an amazing entertainer. Besides Madonna, I also admire Sarah Jessica Parker’s career and her shoe collection?”

Are there any of your songs that you wish you hadn’t recorded/you don’t really love? “No. All my songs are f—ing amazing.”

How is Femme Fatale different from your other albums? I think Femme Fatale is my most upbeat and mature album yet.

Britney Spears: Hear her new single 'Till the World Ends' co-written by Ke$ha

It seems like every day there’s a new snippet released from Britney Spears’ upcoming album Femme Fatale. But today we’ve been gifted with a full-length song from the March 29th release: the new redonkulous dance track “Till the World Ends,” reportedly produced by Max Martin and Dr. Luke and co-written by Ke$ha. It actually has a Ke$ha-esque party vibe with Brit Brit challenging fans to “Keep on dancin’ till the world ends.” My verdict is immediate love but I’m also a staunch Britney fan. Listen below to form your own opinion…

Pink tweets on Christina Aguilera's drinking bust: 'Didn't everyone think I was gonna be the troublemaker?'

Pink-Christina-AguileraImage Credit: Todd Duffey/PR Photos; Christopher Polk/Getty ImagesOnce upon a time, there was beef between our Ladies of the Marmalade.

More recently, a certain kind of tweet-y peace had seemingly been brokered between Christina Aguilera and Pink. Still, the latter is not above a good-natured 140-character poke at her former rival in aughties pop supremacy—two rivals, actually.

Today, following Aguilera’s detainment for public intoxication, she posted to her official Twitter: “Out of Myself, Britney, and Christina—didn’t everyone think I was gonna be the troublemaker? LOOK MA!!! No CUFFS!!”

It’s true that the original don’t-let-me-get-me girl does seem to have settled happily into married-and-expecting adulthood, raising her glass to rebellion largely in her music, and leaving the thornier tabloid adventures to Brit and Xtina. Is Pink right to say that’s not how we all expected it to play out? Tell us what you think in the comments, below.
