The promo video for Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea’s hit duet ‘Pretty Girls’ has finally dropped and boy was it worth the wait! In the video, Iggy plays an alien who crash lands on earth and is befriended by a very 80s looking Britney Spears and her gang of Valley girl pals.

The two singers have been filming their retro themed video in Los Angeles.
Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea looked to be having the time of their lives on Thursday and Friday, as they filmed the video for upcoming duet ‘Pretty Girls’ in Los Angeles. The video looks to be ‘retro’ themed with both girls spotted sporting some crazy big hairstyles on set.
Iggy and Britney look to be going for an 80s theme with the video
The highly anticipated single is set to drop on May 5th and both Iggy and Britney have been careful to keep exact details of the track under wraps. The single will reportedly be the lead track on Spears' forthcoming ninth studio album.
But the ‘Fancy’ rapper will soon be teaming with Britney Spears on 'Pretty Girls'.
After taking a break from Twitter last month rapper Iggy Azalea is in no hurry to return to the social media site, even hinting that she may never come back. "Yeah, so nice not to be on social media so I'm kind of going to continue that until, maybe forever," Azalea told the Associated Press in a interview on Thursday.
Don't expect Iggy Azalea to be tweeting again any time soon
In her last message to fans on her Twitter account, Azalea announced her exit saying, “I am taking some time away from social media. I need to be happy and it is too negative and draining.” The rapper’s social media accounts have since been updated by her management team, posting as ‘Iggy HQ’.

The pop icon is strongly rumoured to be an integral part of the half-time entertainment for Super Bowl L next year.
It’s been barely a month since the drama of the 2015 Super Bowl, but gossip is already heating up as to what will be happening at next year’s game. Strong rumours indicate that Britney Spears will be performing the half-time show, and that she’s currently in talks with the NFL to flesh out the details.
An inside source close to Britney told the National Enquirer that the singer feels that it would be the right time to make a pop comeback, coming off the back of a successful residency in Las Vegas. “She’s ready to do something massive,” the source stated.

‘The Voice’ judge channelled her fellow ex-Mouseketeer when she stopped by ‘The Tonight Show’ sofa on Monday.
Christina Aguilera might be about to make her return as a judge on NBC singing competition ‘The Voice’, but the pop diva proved she has more than a few ‘voices’ in her repertoire, when she appeared on Monday's edition of ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon'. The host challenged Xtina to a game of ‘Wheel of Musical Impressions’ while on his sofa, but Fallon probably wasn’t expecting his guest to be such an expert mimic.
Christina Aguilera could have fooled us with her Britney impression.
Aguilera was first challenged to sing the "Folgers Coffee" jingle in the style of her Burlesque co-star Cher, which she managed perfectly. Then Fallon’s turn came, where he delivered a pretty impressive impression of David Bowie, if he were to sing ‘You're a Grand Old Flag’.
With clips from more than 200 teen movies made in the decade after 1995's Clueless, this lively kaleidoscopic documentary entertainingly traces how America has depicted the teen experience on screen. The film's structure feels a little deliberate, and it of course is looking at a portrayal of puberty, not the real thing. But it's inventively edited by first-time feature director Charlie Lyne, with a snappy pace and some seriously interesting observations along the way.
These 10 years are significant because they marked an expansion in the style of coming-of-age movies, encompassing genres from comedy to sci-fi to horror to explore the clashes between high school factions of jocks, nerds, burnouts, artists and mean girls. Taken together, these films paint a vivid, perhaps exaggerated portrait of adolescence, including key rites of passage, the mob mentality, and the various things that feel threatening to the "herd" (like smart kids or loners). High school is the time when teens experiment with alcohol, partying, rebellion and sex, while facing up to peer pressure and their own mortality for the first time. And ultimately, everyone must navigate this emotionally overwrought period on his or her own.
The film breaks down this experience into five chapters: fitting in (as either a maverick or conformist), acting out (challenging the rules), losing yourself (developing your own identity), toeing the line (being forced to obey the rules) and moving on (growing into an adult). This kind of makes the movie feel like an academic thesis, especially with the somewhat overwritten narration (voiced by teen star Fairuza Balk). But the movie is packed with telling connections between this vast variety of movies, all of which reflect reality without ever depicting it too honestly. Thankfully, Lyne's editing is knowing and often very funny, putting scenes together to say something completely unexpected.

Firstly, he revealed that he’s recorded a handful of new songs with his friend and erstwhile collaborator Taylor Swift. The two featured together on last year’s hit ‘Everything Has Changed’, and Sheeran stated “it’s just a case of finding out where to put them as I don't really put collaborations on my albums. She did her last record, 1989, really quickly, in about a month, I think, so there was no time to put any on there.”

Now you've seen everyone do it...
Just when we thought the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge couldn't get any better (we honestly thought the swearing toddler topped them all!), an unlikely group of people have decided to take it on over in Ireland; they would be none other than Redemptoristine Sisters of Dublin.
Nuns can have fun too!
In the latest viral Ice Bucket Challenge to hit the web, a group of six nuns dressed in their traditional habits and red robes drench each other in icy water after hearing about the hugely popular charity internet craze which was set up to raise money for the ALS Association. Now it seems LITERALLY everybody has done it.
The 32 year-old singer tells a sold-out crowd at Las Vegas' Planet Hollywood, "my boyfriend cheated on me."

Britney Spears has split from her boyfriend David Lucado.

The couple had been together since 2013 but have now split

She had appeared recently to be happy with Lucado, who works at a law firm and was introduced to Britney through mutual friends. Back in November, she told Entertainment Tonight "I'm in love. I like the fact that [Lucado is] very stubborn and he's stuck in his ways. He's just a simple man. I adore him. He's really funny and he's really passionate. I love the fact that anything he's involved in he's passionate about and it's contagious."

Beyonce performing at the VMAs just unlocked a world of yes.
Umm, Beyonce will be performing at the MTV Video Music Awards... is anyone really , surprised? Bey is everywhere these days. In the wake of her surprise album last December Bey has been at every show and received every music award, basically.

A British record producer has defended Britney Spears after a recording of her singing 'Alien' without auto-tune was leaked online.
There's a reason why everything Britney Spears has ever done has been autotuned, she simply isn't the greatest vocalist,as least not on her leaked 'Alien' studio recording. It's not being unkind, it's just true. But this is something we've known for years: yes Spears is pretty, yes she can dance, but it appears she can't sing terribly well.
Britney Spears' studio recording was leaked online and it didn't go down well.
Sandra Bullock isn’t the first celeb to have crazed fans sneaking around her house
Oscar-winning Hollywood actress Sandra Bullock has just recently discovered how far some fans will go to come into contact with their idols as a man broke into her Beverly Hills home in the early hours on Tuesday. Since being arrested, the man who has been identified as Joshua Corbett who is aged 39 and resides in the San Fernando valley, Los Angeles.
A man broke into Bullock's Beverly Hills home while she was inside.
Despite the apparent exclusivity and subsequent security that Beverly Hills affords inhabitants, Bullock’s run-in with the obsessive fan proves that they will often go to ridiculous measures in order to gain recognition from the subject of their adoration. It also presents a worrying security concern as a lapse in mental health often fuels these celebrity obsessions. Most famously, John Hinckley Jr’s assassination attempt on then President, Ronald Raegan, was seen by Hinckley as a way of courting the attention of actress Jodie Foster. But to have a fan invade one’s personal space and most intimate of dwellings is a unsettling notion for most people, never mind those of the celebrity calibre. Here are a selection of unfortunate celebs who’ve been subject to break-ins, robberies and warped fans who got a little too close for comfort.
The newly proposed deal wants the 32 year-old singer to extend her residency until Christmas 2016.

According to Noel, Britney's management backed out of the agreement to pay for the dancer's medical care.
Maybe Britney Spears’ aggressive persona in Work B**** rubbed off on her in real life. A dancer is now suing Brit for battery and negligence, after the star allegedly injured her during the video shoot. According to E!News, Dawn Noel claims that Spears was in a “disheveled and confused state,” when she arrived on set for Work B**** on August 19, 2013. She adds that, "although the choreography involving Britney Spears was fairly basic, she was having difficulty learning the moves, performing dance steps and following simple directions."
The dancer has called into question Britney's professionalism on set.
The lawsuit seems to allege that the injury was not intentional on Spears’ part. Noel says that after about a half hour of rehearsing, Spears "twirled in an unbalanced and reckless manner, arms extended out to her sides and forcefully backhanded" her directly in the face.

No-one could imagine that Justin Bieber and Slipknot would ever combine to make musical magic together, but someone did it and it was pretty great. These other mad mash-ups work too, against all odds.
There are certain things in life that don’t sound like they should ever go together, but then you put them together and...they just do. Peanut butter and jelly, French fries dipped in chocolate milkshakes, Justin Bieber and Slipknot. Huh? Yep, you heard us right! Some musical masters out there are just capable of seeing the potential for a great/totally bonkers mash-up song, when the rest of us could never imagine mixing two totally different artists together. The result can be oddly hypnotic and scarily addictive. Take these mad, but surprisingly great, mash-ups for example.
You’d never imagine that Carly Rae Jepsen, she of super cheesy ‘Call Me Maybe’ fame, could ever be teamed up with industrial rock band Nine Inch Nails and the result not make you want to claw your ears off. Call Me a Hole, the Carley Rae Jepsen vs. Nine Inch Nails mash-up is surprisingly easy listening. The poppy beats of Miss Swift behind Trent Reznor’s recognisable rasp kind of works, perhaps these guys could actually get together for a legitimate collaboration one day!

Miley Cyrus' upcoming cover of The Beatles "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" is not welcome news to Beatles fans, we look some of the other worst cover songs released by artists.
News that Miley Cyrus is set to team up with The Flaming Lips and Andrew from MGMT to record a cover of The Beatles “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” wasn’t exactly received with a wave of enthusiasm. One Beatles fan replied to The Flaming Lips’ frontman Wayne Coyne’s Instagram announcement by saying “Sorry if I don’t want a washed-up Pink Floyd tribute band, and Hannah Montana, ruining one of the greatest songs of all time.”
Miley's impending Beatles cover is not eagerly awaited
Outraged Beatles fans may be jumping the gun a little, as we haven’t heard what the track even sounds like yet. However, these songs have been released and we can safely agree that they have produced some of the worst song covers of all time, most of them bordering on outright offensive.
It was the wedding of the century... sort of.
Congratulations to Jamie Lee Spears and her new husband! Britney’s younger sister just married her beau James Watson on Friday and the pair could not look any sweeter. The couple tied the knot in an intimate setting - at the Audubon Tea Room in New Orleans.

The bride wore a Liancardo gown. Earlier in the day, she was spotted with mom Lynne Spears, heading to a nail salon near the family’s home in Kentwood.

Amanda Bynes is hopefully on the road to recovery, but what causes child stars to become so troubled as adults?
The Amanda Bynes saga was funny at first. When she started dressing like Nicki Minaj, pierced her cheeks and began tweeting strange messages to rapper, Drake, it all just seemed like harmless Miley Cyrus attention seeking. But then things took a turn for the worst when Amanda’s behaviour became increasingly erratic, culminating in her attempting to start up a fire in a neighbour’s driveway before accidentally covering her puppy in gasoline.
Amanda began behaving strangely, emerging from court wearing a knotted blonde wig
The actress’ problems didn’t seem to really start until 2012 when she received a DUI and later that year she was charged for two more alleged hit and run incidents. By 2013 she had been arrested for possession of drugs and her hard partying seemed to be a symptom of something a little more sinister. When things finally came to a head with the fire incident, it was clear that Amanda wasn’t high on drugs or ‘acting out’, this was somebody with mental health issues.

If it wasn't for the popstar's inclusion, we might have never met Ted's wife!
How I Met Your Mother is a phenomenal success in sitcom terms. To get one season is a dream; to get two is teetering on the unthinkable. To get nine – well you’re in ‘Friends’ and Frasier’ territory there, and that’s not bad company to be keeping.
Britney Spears filming her new perfume ad
But it all could have been so different for the hit show had they not attracted the star power of Britney Spears, who starred back in 2008, providing a welcome boost for the flagging sitcom.
Former flames Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears both shared in the success at the 2014 People's Choice Awards as they took home big prizes.
The former lovers were both victorious the 2014 People's Choice Awards on Wednesday (Jan 8th).
After ending the year with 'The 20/20 Experience' being 2013's top-selling album, Timberlake's triumphant return to the music industry continued as he won 'Favourite Album'.

As the Pretty Little Liars star looks set to take her first steps into being a musician, she will do so with the help of the show that first launched her to success, when it returns from it's mid-season break on Tuesday, 7 January.

How did Britney Spears fare on the NYE opening night of her Las Vegas residency?
Britney Spears caused a stir in Las Vegas on New Year's Eve as she kicked off her residency with a spectacular performance of all her best-loved hits.
The 'Work Bitch' singer was a highly anticipated event for all who attended and certainly kicked off 2014 in style. The show was awash with more sequins and scantily-clad, extremely toned backing dancers than you could imagine and, in spite of the poor ratings her latest album 'Britney Jean' received, no-one could deny that she was on form throughout the night.
Britney Spears has spoke about ex-Justin Timberlake and had only kinds words to say about him as she admits his music is "inspiring for me."
The 32 year-old performed to a full house which included several fellow showbiz heavyweights from singers to actors.
But who does the 'Toxic' singer look at with admiration and for inspiration?
The high-octane performance let down some audience members when Britney was caught out lip syncing to some songs
Britney Spears kicked off her two year residency at Las Vegas' Planet Hollywood Resort on Friday, 27 December, to a packed out crowd that included a number of famous faces, including Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez. Most of the audience members left the auditorium in awe of what they had witnessed, whilst others were left disappointed at the fact that Britney lip synced through parts of her performance.
The first 'Piece of Me' show contained a lot of dancing, but little singing
According to the New York Daily News' '[email protected]' section, Britney had long been planning on lip syncing through parts of her performance and on the debut night she did exactly that on hits like 'Womanizer' and 'Perfume.' The 32-year-old singer performed to a packed-out crowd inside the Axis Theater and went through a number of fast-paced dance routines during some of her more exuberant songs, as well as performing some slower paced number that featured a stripped back routine with little stage action. Apparently Britney lip-synced through both kinds of performances.
