OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder has confirmed that he is working on new material with Kelly Clarkson.
Tedder, who co-wrote and produced Leona Lewis’s number one hit ‘Bleeding Love’, told DS that Clarkson’s new songs will feature “big choruses” and “heavy drum programming”.
He also revealed that the songs are influenced by nineties electro-rockers Garbage, while one song, a mid-tempo rock ballad, features an experimental bridge inspired by Mozart.
Clarkson reportedly clashed with her record label over the musical direction of her last album, 2007’s My December, after Sony BMG chief Clive Davis deemed it less commercial than her previous releases.
Britney Spears will appear on hit US TV show ‘How I Met Your Mother’.
The troubled singer – who first showed off her acting skills in the widely criticised 2002 movie ‘Crossroads’ – will appear in the CBS sitcom in an episode due to air in April, a representative for the show confirmed.
Britney is expected to play a character called Abby – who works in the doctor’s office owned by main character Ted – who is described as ‘sweet and friendly and scattered and a little nerdy’.
The 26-year-old star is already working hard to make sure she is fully prepared for the role. She was spotted leaving the 20th Century Fox studios in Los Angeles yesterday (10.03.08) after having a script read-through with other cast members, including Alyson Hannigan, Neil Patrick Harris and Jason Segal.
The show revolves around Ted, played by Jason Segal, who tells his children the crazy stories behind how he met their mom.
As well as starring in ‘Crossroads’, Britney appeared on successful US TV show ‘Will and Grace’ in 2006, and also starred in her own reality show with ex-husband Kevin Federline, ‘Britney and Kevin: Chaotic’. Meanwhile, Britney – who has an estimated $100million fortune – has been given a $1,500 weekly allowance by Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Reva Goetz.
In a ruling yesterday (10.03.08), the commissioner also approved hiring two specialist attorneys to help the mother-of-two sort out her financial affairs while she is under the temporary co-conservatorship of her father Jamie until July 31.
Geraldine Wyle, attorney for the conservators, said the allowance is intended to allow Britney to start to ‘enjoy herself and have some freedom of choice’.
The title says it all…, i’ve looked at soulja boy’s bebo and MySpace and other social networks and he seems to not have done anything within the last month. All dates on there are either the 01/01/2008 or 31/01/2008 and Soulja Boy doesn’t see to be doing….anything. Now i’m not suggesting that ridiculous rumor that he’s dead but for some reason it looks like Soulja Boy’s ducking away from the Media.
Amy Winehouse is to earn £500,000 to sing at Paris Fashion Week, according to The Sun.
The singer, who is in talks to launch her own clothing range, has flown to France for a one-off gig at Louis Vuitton’s show.
Karl Lagerfeld has based a new fashion line on Winehouse, which he unveiled at London Fashion Week earlier this month.
However, she was voted the worst dressed star of 2007 at last night’s NME Awards.
The 24-year-old was spotted moving out of her London flat yesterday.
– Amy ‘asking why he’d tell such an awful lie’
–>Amy Winehouse’s husband lied to her about trying to commit suicide in jail.
Blake Fielder-Civil – who is currently in London’s Pentonville Prison awaiting trial on charges of assault and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice – phoned his troubled wife to tell her he had been found unconscious in his cell after attempting to hang himself.
Amy was left distraught by Blake’s confession, but her friends have now persuaded her she would have been informed by the prison if the suicide bid had actually happened.
A source said: “Blake told Amy he had tried to hang himself in his cell. Now it seems it didn’t happen and she’s asking why he’d tell such an awful lie.”
A prison source said: “We can state 100 per cent that he has not been involved in any suicide attempt.”
A note written by Blake has revealed his fear Amy will leave him if she manages to overcome her drugs battle. It read: “Baby, oh darling. I’m so worried that now you’re thinking straight you’ll realise I’m not worthy of you.”
Blake’s friend added: “He wants to pile on the guilt so she can’t leave him. He’s utterly controlling, even when behind bars.”
At last night’s (10.02.08) Grammys, Amy dedicated her five awards to Blake. Speaking via satellite, she said: “This is to my mum and dad – and for my Blake incarcerated.”
BACK TO BLACK singer AMY WINEHOUSE is reportedly considering launching a cosmetics and clothing line inspired by own sense of style.
The often-troubled star is rumoured to be aiming to capitalise upon her success and unique image, enabling fans to copy her style.
According to the Sun, a friend of the GRAMMY-winning artist, said that AMY has a “distinctive look”.
“She wants to bring out a range of cosmetics and fashion products. There could be hairspray, head scarves, liquid eyeliner, perfume,” they explained.
Another source within the fashion industry told the newspaper that they expected the products to sell well in the capital.
Recently appearing with producer MARK RONSON at the BRIT AWARDS, AMY took home five GRAMMY AWARDS earlier this year.
It’s a true birthday celebration, as we celebrate the birth of Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony’s twins!
The twins, a girl and a boy, were born early this morning (Friday), in Long Island, New York. The baby girl was born at 12:12 a.m. and weighed 5 lbs. 7 oz., and the boy followed 11 minutes later, at 12:23 a.m., weighing 6 lbs.
Jennifer’s manager, Simon Fields, told People Magazine:
Jennifer and Marc are delighted, thrilled and over the moon,” Lopez’s manager Simon Fields tells PEOPLE exclusively.
They’re the first children for Jennifer Lopez, 38, and the fourth and fifth for Marc Anthony, who is 39.
People reported that “the couple celebrated the impending births with a baby shower in New York on Jan. 19. ‘They were just beaming the entire time,’ said one partygoer.”
recent comments made to me made me further research, i visited his offiical site http://www.souljaboytellem.com where there was a fake picture posted of him dead.
for one this doesn’t even look like Soulja Boy and apparently wasn’t his mother supposed to be dead too. I read comments on his site and even people there said he ain’t dead and this is just a publicity stunt by his PR company, i personally believe that. I also visited Yahoo! answers, didn’t really give great answers, so finally i say SOULJA BOY IS NOT DEAD! thank you for reading
Amy Winehouse is giving one of her Grammy Awards to her imprisoned husband.
The troubled singer – who won five prizes at the prestigious US music ceremony on Sunday (10.02.08) – wants Blake Fielder-Civil to display the trophy in his prison cell as a symbol of their love.
A source said: “Amy is planning to give Blake one of her beloved Grammy Awards to prove how much she loves him.”
Prison guards at London’s Pentonville Prison will check the golden
gramophone-shaped prize thoroughly to make sure there is nothing hidden inside.
Security must also declare the statue can’t be used as an offensive weapon. Amy dedicated one of her five awards to Blake – who is currently awaiting trial on charges of grievous bodily harm (GBH) and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice – on Sunday.
The ‘Rehab’ star – who performed at the ceremony from London via a satellite link due to problems with her getting a US visa – said: “This is for my mum, my dad and my Blake, my Blake incarcerated.”
The answer to that question is no. Young rapper soulja boy is not dead there has been two rumours going around about his death,
1. That he was out drinking heavily with his friend Arab and in a hotel room with two girls, jumped out the window, trying to do the ‘Superman’ and said ‘Yoouuuuu!’ whilst falling.
2. That he and his mother died in a car crash.
These suggestions are both incorrect and this is nothing but a media stunt, Soulja Boy’s mother is perfectly alive currently
So for anyone who believes that soulja boy is dead they better listen to something else becuase that is crap!
