Briney Spears : Femme Fatale? That's Me...

 It seems that one of my fave music babes Britney Spears is back in vogue. Her latest album Femme Fatale has rocketed to the top of the Billboard Charts at No. 1

I'm glad that sexy Brit has made a successful comeback. Below is a glowing review of her latest album:

By Jed Gottlieb

Britney's back, baby!

This is a great dance record.

Revoke my critic’s card, label me a pop poseur, confiscate my Bob Dylan vinyl, but it’s the truth. Brit’s seventh album — in stores March 29, now streaming for free on — kills as a dance floor soundtrack.

So pretty

After a decade of monumental success (six platinum studio albums, 20 Top 40 hits) and outsized failure (temporarily losing her kids, shaving her head, needing to keep an ambulance on retainer), Brit finally seems stable. And, thankfully for her, pop fans are still listening: “Femme -Fatale” already has a No. 1 single in “Hold It Against Me.”

This clear head has led to Spears making her most unified piece of art ever. Elevating a million-dollar bundle of purring kitty-cat coos, incessant beats and Auto-Tuned dance epics to the status of art will irk many. But pop architects Max Martin and Dr. Luke — the producers behind many of Brit’s hits and karaoke faves from Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson and Pink — have done just that.

“Femme Fatale” isn’t without problems: It’s wicked -vapid (natch), loses speed halfway through and features an awful “rap” (seriously dude, I got more flow than you). But Martin and Luke manage to (mostly) overcome their inconsistencies and deliver thumping club jam -after thumping club jam.

No ballads. No detours into attempted irony (see: “Circus”). No thinly veiled sexual innuendo (see: “If U Seek Amy”). Nothing distracts from the “Dance! Dance! Dance!” directive. From hypnotic Euro-disco opener “Till the World Ends” to hypnotic Euro-disco track six “(Drop Dead) Beautiful,” it’s all hooks.

The momentum sags a bit until has his moment, but rebounds on the ridiculous (and ridiculously fun) “Trouble for Me.” And when Brit turns introspective on the closer, “Criminal” (“Mama I’m in love with a criminal and this type of love isn’t rational, it’s physical”), after 40 minutes of Hot 100 hedonism, it’s actually welcome.

“Femme Fatale” won’t re-define Brit — she’s too deep into her strange history for one album to change how she’s perceived by the public. Nor will it become required listening or some kind of pop milestone — it’s not “The Fame” or “Fearless.” But give the girl a break and enjoy a great dance record.

Charlie Sheen...Back to "Winning"

Just days ago, the Sheen Machine looked like it was in danger of stalling. There were the reports that Charlie Sheen Tour was not really selling as well as was hyped,  and also reports that Sheen was booed during one of his live appearances, and even some in the audience left halfway.

Miley saves the day for Sheen

However, who other than Miley Cyrus who came to save the day for good ol' Charlie, as she joined the Sheen bandwagon, tweeting "'Do not fear...the Sheenius is here!' I'm not gonna lie. I came back to twitter for 2 reasons. My fans and to follow @charliesheen #winning." 

Nice legs, Miley

No doubt Charlie was elated to have Ms Cyrus on his side, and he replied  "Dear Miley, Welcome back to Twitter! Always felt you were epic... Now you proved it! Thanks for the love! ybh c @gypsyhearttour."

Miley didnt let ol Sheen down, as she replied in her tweet "@charliesheen I always felt the same about you! You have taught me everything I know about WINNING. Duh!"

Very perky

Sheen winning with his goddesses

What can I say about Mr Charlie Sheen? He is really a winner - gorgeous babes fall all over him, the gossip rags love him, and now even cute chicks like Miley are his "team". He looks to be back to "winning"!

Big Games Coming! European Champions League Football

I must admit that I dont usually follow the European Champions League matches. However this year I have made an exception as there were some really big games that have been played, and many more on the way. The 1st leg  quarter finals are going to begin playing in a few days, and these are the last teams standing:

Chelsea vs Manchester Utd in England (Stamford Bridge)

Barcelona vs Shakhtar Donetsk in Spain

My opinion?

I'm rooting for Spurs, coz they are massive underdogs. I liked how they performed so well against the giants from Europe such as Inter, Bremen and AC Milan. So I'm hoping they can create a major upset by putting out Real... (There might be a better chance for Spurs if Gareth Bale is fit and  plays)

As for the other matches, I think Inter, Man U and Barcelona should go through to the semis. Barca, with Argentine wizzard Lionel Messi in top form, should have too much firepower against anyone in the semis and the final.

Prediction?... Barcelona to take the whole thing!
