The Backstreet Boys have postoned more tour dates for A.J.'s rehab - Britney's teamin' up with her man to write some songs and P. Diddy is getting some help from a rock star on a new tune.

1Backstreet Boy A.J. McLean isn't ready to leave rehab just yet. He has extended his stay for two more weeks and the Backstreet Boys will have to postpone more concert dates on their Black and Blue Tour. The show which was supposed to continue in Vancouver, Canada on August 7th is now rescheduled for August 24th in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. (The August 7th to 22nd dates will be made up in October, 2001.)

In a statement Kevin Richardson said, "A.J.'s initial treatment is going very well. His doctors have suggested it would be in A.J.'s best interest to take an additional two weeks in transitional care." The band hopes A.J. will be able to return in two weeks but have discussed the possibility of touring without him if he needs more time.

1Britney's writing songs with her man, Justin Timberlake and Wade Robson (the co-writer of *NSYNC's Pop) for her next album. Robson will also be directing Britney on her fall tour which he's said, "will be a sexy show." Robson, who has choreographed tours for Britney and *NSYNC before, also said,"it's again really theatrical, a lot of acting in it, massive set pieces." It should be interesting to see the direction Britney takes for her third album which is going to be a lot edgier.

1P. Diddy, formerly known as Puff Daddy, is teaming up with rocker David Bowie for a new version of Bowie's song This Is Not America. P. Diddy didn't want to just sample Bowie's song, like he's done in the past, he wanted to work with him in the studio. P. Diddy has used samples from other artists before including David Bowie, Led Zeppelin and The Police. P. Diddy's song Been Around The World sampled music from Bowie's song Let's Dance. This Is Not America will appear on the soundtrack and movie Training Day starring Denzel Washington and Ethan Hawke.

    Hello and welcome to the first installment of my new series "Alpha Reviews". Whenever I see a new movie, I'll write a review of it here. Don't worry, the first part of the review will be spoiler free, and I'll make sure to give a warning when I talk more about the specifics of the movie.  Today I'll be looking at Roland Emmerich's sequel to (arguably) his greatest work, Independence Day. His original alien disaster film came out in 1996, and while it wasn't a major hit with the critics, it trounced the box office by raking in more money than any other film of that year. Over the past two decades, love for the movie has only grown, and it's now seen as the ultimate popcorn movie.  So how did the sequel hold up? Well...it's not easy to tell. On the one hand, there are some things that this movie did really well. On the other, this movie had moments that I absolutely hated. This is such a hard movie to crituique. Not because there's nothing to critique, but because there's so much right and wrong in the movie that making a final call on it is hard to do.  For one, the story is serviceable. I can buy pretty much everything that they're saying. While there are a few obvious plot holes, impeccable writing isn't what you expect from ID.  The characters vary from the fun and interesting to the idiotic and annoying. Jeff Goldblum does a great job here, and so does Bill Pullman and William Fitchener. As for the new characters? Not so much. The (arguably) two main characters are played by discount Chris Hemsworth (Liam Hemsworth), and discount Micheal B. Jordan (Jessie Usher). Neither give a stunning performance. And my goodness, there is one character in this movie who is so stereotypical and unrealistic, that it literally made me facepalm when I saw it. You'll know who I'm talking about if you've seen the movie. But, the movie is set up so that everyone gets a healthy slice of screen time, so it's okay.  The action is phenomenal, but kind of unoriginal. The first real action scene we have is the destruction of London. Know what it looks exactly like? The destruction of Paris in 2012. Know who directed 2012? Roland Emmerich. Now, I'm one of the few who enjoyed that movie, so I'm fine with it. And most of the other scenes do have a more original feel to them. But, this guy doesn't stop at copying his own movies. There's an action scene where they're on the moon, it looks exactly like Prometheus. I guess I can forgive some of this, but come on, really?  The nostalgia was WAY off the charts. I count this as a category for review because it's what old movie sequels do now. Some do it at the right amount, some don't do it enough, and some...like this film...do it all the time. Almost everything is recycled from the past movie, and there so many callbacks that it's hard to remember them all. But I will give it credit, some of them had me laughing. But, some of them made we want to scream "You're not even trying!" in the theater.  All in all? I'd say that you need to see this movie if you had any enjoyment out of the first one. But, just know that this has a lot more nonsense to put up with, even though it does give much of the entertainment value of the first one in return. I can't guarantee that you won't be disappointed, but if you go into it expecting a mix of good and bad, you'll be glad to see the good parts of a true classic film on the big screen once again.  That's it here. What were your thoughts on the movie? Who do you think gave the best performance? What did you want to see more of? Post what you think about Independence Day: Resurgence below.
