It's nice to know that Britney Spears isn't asking for much for Christmas.
"What do I want Santa to bring me?—I have everything," the pop princess exclusively told me while promoting tonight's premiere of her new E! special, I Am Britney Jean. "I'm so happy. I don't need anything. I just want good health, happiness and love."( Collapse )

UPDATE: THE DOC IS RE-AIRING FROM 11-1 am. Enjoy (again)!
(Note though that the promo's aspect ratio seems like it could be off too, and in the opposite, widened way. So that's really fucking confusing.)
As far as the content goes, I Am Britney Jean was not particularly raw and candid, but it was well made since it was a World of Wonder (RuPaul's Drag Race, The Eyes of Tammy Faye, Dark Roots: The Unauthorized Anna Nicole) production. The weirdest thing that Britney said was that her onstage persona/alter ego is a different person and that it's "seriously bipolar disorder." (Ever since her 2008 meltdown, it's been widely speculated that Britney is bipolar, and here she is kind of joking about it.)
It was refreshingly honest of Brit to admit, "Personally, I'm really a shy person and I'm particularly not really made for this industry because I am so shy." But at the same time it's like, why are you still doing this then? It would be one thing if she were a singer's singer or a dancer's dancer or if there were some virtuosic, honed craft that her inner artistry compelled her to express despite the unfortunate byproduct of fame. But no, her craft is being an all-around entertainer, a star, and that's how her career was engineered. It's how her life was engineered, and from a very young age, at that. If she is "not really made for this industry," is it any wonder that she freaked out five years ago and hit an SUV with an umbrella, or that she routinely shows up in public and music videos with dead eyes, looking like she wants to crawl out of her skin? Was happiness ever a possibility for Britney Spears? Did anyone ever actually think about that?
She at least seemed more alive and spirited in I Am Britney Jean than she has in years. She was often endearingly goofy. She used big-ish words like "intangibles" and "naiveté," and she also used "fart" as an expletive. She lamented, "Being a perfectionist sucks," and discussed her love of watermelon bubblegum and sex. She seemed kind to her employees and she seems to work very hard to keep the industry that has been organized around her propped up. The artist was present on I Am Britney Jean, but given her comments, you can't help but wonder if she really wanted to be.
With his critically applauded, epic — and now, Grammy-nominated — good kid, m.A.A.d city, — Kendrick Lamar used rhymes to tell a chilling story of a boy becoming a man in the gang-driven streets of Compton, California. And while every track on the poetic album was almost disturbingly honest, it was the haunting — and, according to Lamar himself, "definitely true" — "Sing About Me, I'm Dying of Thirst" that was the most haunting. A narration about the death of his partner's brother, "Sing About Me" is a sprawling 12 minutes long, which is why, when it came time to release the video on Friday (December 20), Kendrick decided to divide it into chapters.
this is my fave song off his album so i'm happy he did a video for it. him rapping the last verse (or at least part of the last verse) a capella gave me chills ngl.
For many, Sailor Moon was a major catalyst that sparked an interest in Japanese animation and culture. Next to Dragon Ball Z, Sailor Moon made up one-half of a particularly influential anime-focused afternoon action block. The Sailor Moon series was a huge influence on many children growing up in the 1990’s, especially young girls. The Sailor Scouts were childhood heroes and role models–a source of inspiration and empowerment.
In honor of Sailor Moon’s 20th anniversary and the upcoming remake, Anime Expo is pleased to welcome the classic Sailor Moon series’ voice cast for their first full reunion appearance in the United States! Anime Expo 2014 Guests of Honor, Linda Ballantyne (Sailor Moon, seasons 3 and 4), Susan Roman (Sailor Jupiter), Katie Griffin (Sailor Mars), Karen Bernstein (Sailor Mercury, seasons 1 and 2), and Stephanie Morgenstern (Sailor Venus, seasons 1 and 2) will all be participating in a Sailor Moon panel as well as individual autograph sessions.( Collapse )
If you're anything like us, you've been listening to and watching Beyonce's surprise self-titled "visual album" on repeat since it dropped overnight last week. With 14 new tracks to digest and 17 new videos to obsess over, we're still trying to decide which is our favorite.
Now, for one time only, Fuse is bringing you the chance to catch all the videos from Beyonce on the big screen—or at least a bigger screen than your computer.
Tune in to Fuse Monday, December 23 at 8 p.m. ET to catch the exclusive U.S. premiere of "Beyonce: The Visual Album." We'll be playing all 17 videos back-to-back in the order they appear on the album, including the bonus video, "Grown Woman."
(Check out our Channel Finder so you know where to tune in.) Prior to "Beyonce: The Visual Album," Fuse will feature a Beyoncé Takeover comprised of programming dedicated to Beyonce's legendary career. Beginning at 6 a.m. ET, tune in to catch her most memorable moments, music videos and more that lead Beyonce from Destiny’s Child to the icon she is today.
