Get ready to see more of Britney in the future. Her new album's due in November - along with an HBO concert special. On another note, the Dixie Chicks have run into a little trouble with Sony Music.

1Britney's been quiet lately but not for long! We're gonna be seeing a lot more of the pop princess again in the months to come. She's put another dime in the jukebox for her new album which is supposed to be released on November 6, 2001. Britney has recorded the Joan Jett 1981 hit, I Love Rock 'n Roll. She'll perform the song in a bar scene for her upcoming movie What Are Friends For and will include it on her new CD. Britney's version uses the original melody but has a hip-hop feel to it. Apparently the vibe of the new album is less poppy and more funky. It's also gonna have more of an attitude and edge to it and some tracks will even have a "club feel."

1In Britney's first movie, What Are Friends For, she plays an innocent girl, Lucy, who goes on a cross-country adventure in hopes of being a singer. The road trip flick is due out early 2002 and also stars Taryn Manning from Crazy/Beautiful, Dan Aykroyd as her father and Kim Cattrall (Sex and the City) as her mother.

She'll also be gracing the TV screen in her first HBO special - a live concert special. The show takes place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on November 18, 2001. Britney will sing with Cher on the Sonny and Cher tune The Beat Goes On. Britney recorded a remake of the tune on her first album. According to the Associated Press, Britney said, "I really want this to be shocking and edgier. This show will be an event. It's going to be to the next level as far as stunts." Spears also said, " I want to do things that people have never seen before - I don't want to be considered a role model."

1In non-Britney news, the Dixie Chicks have run into a little trouble with Sony Music Entertainment. The company filed a breach of contract lawsuit against the Chicks to get them to honor a 1997 contract with the label. Apparently the girls wanted to make some adjustments to the contract after the success of their first two CDs. Sony says, according to the contract, the Chicks owe as many as four more albums. In a statement Sony Music says, "We filed this complaint to confirm that the Dixie Chicks remain signed to an exclusive recording contract with Sony Music." Hopefully the Chicks will be able to saddle up some kind of agreement.

    I know little to nothing about Tom Hiddleston, but he seems like a really nice guy, and I'd hate for Taylor to ruin his reputation. However, that isn't why I dislike their relationship. I dislike the fact that they are together because Taylor cheated on Calvin Harris with him and is playing the victim, as she does. Once her and Tom split, which they- inevitably- eventually will, she is going to blame it all on him although it will not be his fault. (If Tom is to ever cheat on her, she has absolutely no right to cry and whine about it. Maybe it'll be his fault, but it won't be his fault, if you get what I'm saying.) "EndlessDream" wrote:I give them 2 months until they break up.  That's a bit generous, considering Taylor's non-exhaustive track record. But you're probably right, yeah. 2 months, maybe 3.

    I give them 2 months until they break up. And it won't be Tom's fault. Hopefully it will happen before I spend a day with Tom so that there is no chance he would bring Taylor with him. Also, yes, she is just using guys for music.
