Jennifer Lopez has been on a whirlwind promo tour as of late, promoting her new movie The Boy Next Door, American Idol and the million other projects that the A.K.A. diva is involved in at the moment. Seriously, she’s been on Wendy Williams, the Daily Show and the cover of Complex all in the matter of, like, one day. She’s an unstoppable force!
Last night, the “Booty” entertainer came to Bravo TV’s Watch What Happens Live once again to discuss a range of topics, from the men her life, to the era of booty and some health tips. (And considering how utterly flawless she looked in her barely there, boob-baring dress, she’s certainly one who knows a thing or two about beauty!)
Of course, she was also grilled by host Andy Cohen in the infamous “Plead The Fifth” segment. Topics included: The craziest place she’s ever had sex, Nicki Minaj‘s “Anaconda” and…Mariah Carey and Britney‘s Vegas residencies.
But which one would J.Lo attend if she could only see one of them? Spoiler alert and another clip after the jump. More »
The Giorgio Moroder project — his first artist album in over 30 years — kicked off with a bang last year in the form of “74 Is The New 24,” along with a press release that unveiled the enviable list of contributors, including Kylie Minogue, Sia, Charli XCX and Britney Spears.
Now, the legendary disco producer responsible for everything from Donna Summer‘s “I Feel Love” to Blondie‘s “Call Me” is starting to speak out about his experience creating the album, including some very subtle hints about what to expect.
For instance, the Britney feature will be “an old song,” which he says she put her “special touch” on while recording the track. And it was all her idea! “Britney actually came to me. She asked me if I was interested in doing an old song, which obviously I liked and I knew.” A Coverney! How exciting! He also explains that he loved Sia’s “Titanium” with David Guetta, as well as “Diamonds” for Rihanna. “As busy as she is, she was ready to work with me so that was quite nice,” he says.
What else did the producer have to say about his upcoming LP? Watch up top. More »

Iggy Azalea is known for spilling the tea to her fans on Twitter, and last week the rapper confirmed her collaboration with Britney Spears! She responded to a fan on the social media site with this: “To answer ur question: bliss isn’t real or the name of our song. also our song isn’t about booty or sonically similar.”

In a recent interview with Boston radio station Kiss 108 for their Jingle Ball, Azalea stated the single will be coming next year. “We recorded a few different things and then one of those just ended up being, I think, undeniably great.
