Britney Spears‘ music video ‘Till the World Ends’ proved one thing: that the pop star is able to dance her way out from any kind of trouble, catastrophe or calamity, including a world-ending apocalypse.
Now even though ‘Till the World Ends’ is based on events that have yet to occur, the theme of her video was definitely nothing futuristic. The tense ambiance, sexy and sweaty on-screen characters and the collection of raunchy dance moves are reminding many of her own 2001 smash hit ‘Slave 4 U.’ The two videos share some similarities that are too striking to ignore. The sweaty bodies, the dirty dancing, Britney’s multiple dress changes are all indications that someone sampled her own stuff. The similarities reach its peak during a scene which is almost identical to a Slave 4 U sequence. The scene in question is the one in which Britney is sitting among a group of dancers, which certainly brought a dose of nostalgia to the viewers that had previously seen the ‘Slave 4 U’ video.

Rapper Nicki Minaj frequently unveils new alter-egos for different songs and this is exactly what she has done again for ‘Where Them Girls At’ – her collaboration with dance music great David Guetta. Since she was working with a mainstream dance musician for the first time, she went for a never-used-before hybrid theme, which in her own words is a mixture of her previously used personas Nicki and Roman.
In a recent interview with MTV News, Minaj said that she will be going with an English accent and that, while it may sound weird to some, she isn’t the kind who gets disturbed by what others think about her. The Trinidad & Tobago-born raptress, who moved to the US during her teens, said that she wanted to give the song her trademark rebellious touch, and therefore she came up with the new hybrid character. She also revealed that her lyrics will contain some of the most insane and crazy things she has ever said in a song, but it will all be about having fun and good time.

Beneath the multiple layers of creativity, ultra-modern attire and tons of addictive songs, Lady Gaga has always been loyal to those around her and to her brigade of fans. This was only one of the numerous qualities mentioned by her colleagues in the MTV program “Lady Gaga: Inside the Outside,” a documentary which shed light on both Gaga as an artist and as a person.
In another MTV program, “Lady Gaga: The After-Show,” the show’s host James Montgomery arranged sit-downs with many of Gaga’s close allies in the music game, such as Semi Precious Weapons lead singer Justin Tranter, her longtime friend Lady Starlight (shown with Gaga in photo to left), documentary maker Davi Russo, and her frequent producer Fernando Garibay.

When Davi Russo was contacted to directed the Lady Gaga-based documentary “Lady Gaga: Inside the Outside,” he was aware that he would get to spend a lot of time with the pop superstar, something her diehard fans would love to do as well.
But what Russo wasn’t aware about was that he would also have to give her suggestion about her dresses for the documentary. Giving wardrobe advice to someone like Gaga, who is known for her creative outfits is a tall order. But thankfully, Gaga and Russo are both New Yorkers and they shared enough things to know each others style, which meant that even though the duo had never met before this project, their creative ideas still synchronized to some extent.

In a lengthy Twitter post, Britney shared, “I would describe it as moody, edgy pop with A LOT of energy. I co-wrote a couple of songs. I think it’s some of the best work I have ever done. There are a few mid-tempos that could be considered ballads. I have a lot of history with #MaxMartin and @TheDoctorLuke so it’s always fun to collaborate with them. They make such incredible music. I’m so excited and I can’t wait for you guys to hear it. I think its some of the best work I have ever done!”
She then went on to thanks her dedicated fan base for sticking with here through all the ups and downs of her career. “Just want to say that I really love you guys and can’t thank you enough for the support throughout my entire career,” Britney tweeted.

The basic theme used by Marsha Ambrosius in her ‘Far Away’ music video is not the most freshest of the ideas. The unfortunate love affair of two lover is a subject that has been used in thousands of plays, movies, dramas and musicals, still Ambrosius’ clever addition of hot topics such as suicide, homosexual rights and discrimination, have added a unique touch to the song.
The clip features Ambrosius hanging out with a charming man who is well-liked by everyone in his company. However, as soon as his sexual orientation becomes clear, all who previously enjoyed the man’s company suddenly start acting completely differently towards him, which eventually leads to that man committing suicide.

When Britney Spears made her debut in late nineties and quickly achieved superstardom, she had just the right amount of cuteness and sex appeal to woo her listeners and viewers. She continued producing hit albums after the immense success of her debut album ‘Baby One More Time,’ with the latest in line being her new ‘Femme Fatale’ album. Even though fans have already developed a liking for her latest dance-rich offering, a small section of critics are not especially fond of the fact that Britney didn’t write any of the Femme Fatale songs herself.
