“Extra” is reporting that Britney Spears will be starring in a Las Vegas show. In honor of her being in the Nevada city, it will be mandatory at all Blackjack tables that players must say “Hit me baby one more time.”
Shocking news about how the Post Office wants to discontinue Saturday mail delivery in August. The shocking part is that there are people who still use the Post Office.
Generally, this year’s Super Bowl commercials weren’t memorable. The most effective was the GoDaddy commercial that featured a slurping kiss between a nerd and Victoria Secret model Bar Refaeli. Dot-com domain sales rose 40%. Everyone is buying getthisoutofmy head.com, oohgross.com and Iamsellingmytv.com.
Lindsey Lohan has reportedly turned down a $550,000 offer to be on “Dancing With the Stars.” Makes sense. Did you ever try to do the Tango with a police ankle bracelet?
Disappointed about the news that Honey Boo Boo’s mom, Mama June, has lost more than 100 pounds. I was sure she dropped the weight by sending Honey Boo Boo to live with relatives. Because of the weight loss, “The Soup” host Joel McHale will have to stop calling Mama June the “human thumb” and now call her the human finger.
Me: What’s with the background? Those squares are giving me Saved by the Bell and Mickey Mouse Club flashbacks. Maybe she was just trying to get in touch with her roots? H-Mac: “Blackout is the state she was in when they recorded this, I’m sure. All she had to do was lay on the floor, moan and make some noises, and they just produced around her.” My fiancee: “I guess she has to have the hat to cover the extensions.” Colleague Felicia Matlosz: “Ewww, that’s awful. Are you sure that’s real?”
And yes, it’s real. Straight from Jive Records. There’s a tracklisting from Jive below:
Sent: Wednesday, October 10, 2007 10:14 AM Subject: BRITNEY SPEARS NEW ALBUM RELEASE DATE!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE OCTOBER 10, 2007
Jive Records announced today that the label is moving up the worldwide release date of Britney Spearsâ€™ latest release Blackout to October 30th.
Recently, songs from Britneyâ€™s Spearsâ€™ forthcoming album, along with unfinished material and demos represented as completed legitimate songs, were leaked on-line. A label spokesperson stated, “due to these numerous unauthorized on-line leaks, the label is doing everything possible to prevent and avoid any further illegal distribution of songs including moving up the release date of the album to October 30th. ”
Kanye West – “Graduation”
Just a quick review, since I’m only on my second listen, but Kanye trimmed the fat and cut the skits from his previous albums, making “Graduation” a lean 12 songs.
On the whole, the album is very, very good, with “Champion,” “Big Brother” and “Everything I Am” being immediate stand-out tracks. Even the song with T-Pain (“Good Life”) is nice — any time T-Pain is listenable, well, that’s quite the achievement.
As if she’s not having enough trouble caring for little Sean Preston, Fresnan-by-marriage Britney Spears is allegedly already carrying baby No. 2.
So says one of those exclusive reports from U.S. Weekly, which claims poolside pictures from her Las Vegas jaunt last weekend prove that a second child is expected for Ms. Toxic and Mr. PopoZao (that’s our hometown hero Kevin Federline, if you have luckily missed the monstrosity that is his rap career).
Sure, it’s early to start thinking about names, but how about a little Fresno love for this half-Fresno seedling? William Saroyan Federline? Has a ring to it.
