Blame It On The Music

Don't call it a comeback? Britney Spears is rumored to give a thrilling performance at this year's MTV VMAs. UBritney.com has news of Britney's top secret performance plans. The news was "leaked" by VMA insiders and is allegedly trying to be suppressed by MTV. I'm not sure how much of this (if any) is true but it would be pretty cool if Britney gave a stunning performance (like the one she did when she performed I'm A Slave 4 U in 2001).

"So Britney will come out of a huge pyramid dressed as Cleopatra to perform a Boom Boom/Outrageous medley. She'll concentrate on sexy moves and fire circles, sexy men holding her down to the fans and then, an easy-to-do choreography. Britney loved her VMA 2001 Slave outfit so bad that she asked the same designer to do her eye-attraction costume for this year's show. It'll look a bit like Elizabeth Taylor's costume worn in her Cleopatra movie. The performance from Britney is one of the most anticipated ones during the night."

It seems odd to me that she would be asked to perform since she is supposed to be recuperating from knee surgery. Though, on the other hand, it does make sense that she would be asked to perform since she had to cancel the second leg of her U.S. tour and any performance would be greatly appreciated by her fans. I hope it is true, I'd love to see Brit give a hot performance that will leave everyone talking all night long and will create a buzz all over the Internet the next day. We'll see ...

Last night I downloaded the new Hilary Duff single Fly from iTunes (suggested to me by my friend Shane) and I have to admit that I love it! It's not as good as Ashlee's stuff but it can hold its own. Geeze, with all this pop stuff getting released (Lindsay Lohan has a song on the Princess Diaries 2 soundtrack) it's hard to keep track of all of it. I just found out that Ashlee's Autobiography is getting released in Japan and that it will include 3 extra songs (Harder Everyday, Sorry, Endless Summer). I would be *very* interested in owning that cd. Oh yeah, and Lisa Loeb has just released her latest album (The Way It Really Is) this week. Whether it's pop or rock I'm down with all of these kickass ladies. Ack ... so much new music to procure!

Today and tomorrow are going to be very laid back (i.e. they will involve no money at all) so that I can replenish my financial reserves for Erik's birthday. So, I'll probably be blogging a lot. Here's today's lowdown:

And that's it. I will leave you with a stunning picture of Julianne Moore that was shot for this month's issue of W Magazine:


There are more pictures to check out HERE. She looks amazing in all of them. Enjoy!
