Britney Spears gets harsh on ‘X-Factor’ debut

HollywoodNews.com: Britney Spears made her debut on ‘X-Factor- last night, and she is not playing the role of the nice judge.
Spears ended up having to judge Don Philip, a vocal coach who sang a duet with her for the song “I Will Still Love You” from her album ‘…Baby One More Time,’ states RadarOnline.
And while he was excited to see her one more time, she wasn’t too crazy about his performance: “I feel like through the years maybe you’ve gone through a lot of hardships and battles but your voice isn’t really up to the bar of ‘The X-Factor’ and what we want.”
He ended up not making it through the audition round.

Britney Spears Photos: Hollywood Music Photo Gallery of the Day Aug 25, 2011

HollywoodNews.com: Our selected celebrity to be included in our “Hollywood Music Photo Gallery of the Day” is Britney Spears.
It was recently revealed that Britney Spears would be receiving a special honor at the MTV Video Music Awards this Sunday. Not only will Madonna reportedly be presenting the tribute, but stars like Lady Gaga, Ke$ha, Katy Perry, Demi Lovato, Nicki Minaj and Janet Jackson are expected to perform.
Enjoy this pop princess’ gallery!
Britney Spears came onto the music scene with her debut album ‘ …Baby One More Time’ in 1999. She instantly became a teen sensation as she turned out other hit songs like “Oops!… I Did It Again.”
In 2001, Spears released her third studio album and took a chance in film with the movie “Crossroads.” But, she stuck with music and turned out her fourth album by 2003.
However, she hit a rough patch in 2008 when her personal life became a little dramatic. She did manage to release her sixth album around that time and turned out the hit song “Womanizer.”
Spears has already sold over 100 million records worldwide and she is only 29 years old.
Spears has won a number of awards including a Grammy for “Toxic” as the Best Dance Recording. And now that her career is back in action, only time will tell if more Grammys are in her future.

‘Glee’ star Darren Criss on his character’s experimentation

By Greg Hernandez
HollywoodNews.com: Darren Criss, who plays openly gay student Blaine on ‘Glee,’ talked about locking lips with Lea Michele’s Rachel on last week’s episode during an appearance Friday on ‘Access Hollywood Live.’
“It was clearly, for Blaine, an experiment, which I think is a cool thing to address,” Darren told hosts Billy Bush and Kit Hoover. “More often than not, it’s like the straight guy or the straight person thinking out of the box, but the other side of that is just sort of… conflict.”
The 24-year-old actor/musician talked about originally auditioning for the role of Finn (landed by Cory Monteith) and says his formerly crazy coiffed hairdo may be partly to blame for his not getting cast.
“For the longest time I would come in [to auditions] with my big, sort of hobbit hair and my guitar and sing like Motown and Disney songs… basically just being a goofball,” Darren recalled.
Darren trimmed his hair when he returned to audition for the role of “preppy” private-schooler Blaine and performed his own take on Britney Spears’ “Baby One More Time.”
“For [the role of Blaine] it was very clean-cut, preppy… so I did the ‘Dead Poets [Society]’ hair,” Darren said, referencing the 1989 Robin Williams drama. “I actually sang a Rodgers and Hart tune, which is very sort of classical musical theater, then I did a version of… Britney.”
Though Darren plays an openly gay high school student on ‘Glee,’ he is straight in real life.
“I’ve been pretty overt about the fact that I am straight,” Darren said. “I think it’s an important thing to be explicit about — not for my own sexuality, but just as a general statement that I am comfortable with my sexuality and very comfortable with the fact that I’m playing a strong gay character.”

“Glee” star Matthew Morrison doesn’t want a Britney episode

HollywoodNews.com: Not everyone is a fan of Britney Spears.
Namely, star of “Glee” Matthew Morrison is not on board with the idea of an all-Britney musical episode. Maybe it’s because he’s a talented Broadway actor who can’t image singing “Baby One More Time.” Although he did rap “Ice Ice Baby” last week, so his standards can’t be that high.
After the wild success of the all-Madonna episode and the buzz surrounding the Lady Gaga episode coming this season, it seemed only fitting that Britney Spears would be considered for an episode.
Morrison told US Weekly that he wasn’t interested in spending time of the princess of pop’s music.
“That’s a rumor her manager started. I hope our show doesn’t go along that route,” he told the publication.
Spears’ manager, Adam Leber, suggested the idea on Twitter, and the creator of “Glee,” Ryan Murphy, admitted that he was considering the idea.
