You wanna hot bodeh? No one knows how to get to work (bitch) better than Miss Britney Spears, who flaunts her unbelievably toned figure on the cover of the upcoming January/February 2015 issue of Women’s Health.
With her upcoming highly anticipated collaborations with Iggy Azalea and Giorgio Moroder both on the way next year, the Piece Of Me Vegas showgirl’s showing off her incredibly sexy bod and talking fitness, food (“I’m really into raw food — sushi, basically”) and staying Healthyney inside the magazine. She also shares her outlook on life: “I’m not about the biggest and the best…I’m about enjoying my life, more than anything.” It’s nice to see and hear our Brit Brit so happy and healthy!

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.”
Now I-G-G-Y is revealing even more information about the forthcoming duet with pop’s princess. 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. Hopefully everybody will get to hear it at the beginning of next year,” she said. “I think people are really going to love it and enjoy it. It’s a really fun track.” More »
Iggy Azalea set tongues wagging when she randomly admitted to hitting the studio with Britney Spears in November. She didn’t give any further details but social media soon started buzzing with fake track titles (“Bliss” being the most common). The femcee finally shed more light on the tantalizing collaboration yesterday (December 10), when she responded to a fan on Twitter. “To answer ur question: bliss isn’t real or the name of our song. also our song isn’t about booty or sonically similar.”
Obviously in a chatty mood, the multiple-Grammy nominee also confirmed that the next single from Reclassified is Jennifer Hudson-assisted bop “Trouble,” which is a blow for those of us hoping to hear “Heavy Crown” on the radio. The reason? Radio formats and audience testing. “['Heavy Crown' is] not formatted for pop or rhythmic radio and i would lose two formats of airplay,” Iggy explained. “People need to realize they ‘test’ the songs w ppl and give them scores. thats how it works, they pick based on what scores.”
And if that isn’t enough I-G-G-Y news for one day, the “Beg For It” hitmaker also followed Selena Gomez on Instagram this morning — prompting speculation that she’s working on the former teen queen’s Interscope debut. See Iggy’s Twitter spree after the jump. More »

Iggy Azalea casually dropped a bombshell on Twitter last night (November 20) and then carried on with her latest tirade (this time about bootleg vinyl). The rap diva’s big revelation? That she has been working with the Queen of Las Vegas, Britney Spears. A fan asked if she would ever consider working with the most personal pop princess and she unexpectedly answered: “I did and it was amazing.”
When asked what came of the studio session, the “Beg For It” hitmaker held her tongue. “Can’t say anymore info about it,” she tweeted. This sounds like a no-brainer. Britney needs a hit and Iggy is hot enough at the minute to almost guarantee one — even if it’s simply via YouTube views like her feature on Jennifer Lopez‘s “Booty”. Which garnered the veteran pop queen a surprise top 20 hit. See the femcee’s tweets after the jump. More »
Now here’s a major plot twist for your Monday morning: Synth-pop pioneer Giorgio Moroder is returning with his first original artist album in 30 years — and he’s got a few famous friends to help him out this time around.
74 Is The New 24 is the (brilliant) title of Moroder’s upcoming LP due out in Spring 2015 according to a press release issued today, which will feature contributions from some of our favorite pop acts, including Britney Spears, Sia, Charli XCX, Kylie Minogue, Mikky Ekko, Foxes and Matthew Koma among others.
The legendary producer, responsible for dozens of iconic gems from the past four decades including Donna Summer‘s iconic “I Feel Love,” said that he was inspired by Daft Punk to make a grand return. “After they asked me to be on their record I started to get offers to DJ, which I had never done, and that was a great thing, and then I started to get offers for a deal, and Sony/RCA was the best, so I went with them,” he explained to VICE.

Taylor Swift could eclipse a record Britney Spears set way back in 2000 for the highest first-week album sales tally by a female artist. The 24-year-old’s new LP 1989 sold 1.316 million copies in its first seven days of release according to Hits Daily Double, which is marginally less than the 1.319 million opening bow of Oops!… I Did It Again in 2000. However, HDD doesn’t include all sales data, so the “Shake It Off” diva could still squeeze past her.
And even if Taylor doesn’t beat that record, 1989 will still deliver the biggest first-week sales tally of her career (Red sold 1.208 million copies in 2012) — an incredible achievement given the steady decline of album sales. It will be interesting to see how many copies the former country queen can sell by the year’s end. She has a hectic promo schedule and another single on the horizon, so three million copies doesn’t seem out of reach.
EDIT: Taylor Swift ultimately fell short of Britney’s record. 1989 sold 1.287 million copies this week according to Billboard. More »
