Destinys Child hits the theater, Grease lightning is not happening for *NSYNC, and Britney is gonna team up with the king of pop, wacko Jacko. Read on to get the latest buzz on your music faves.
Can things get any better for Destiny's Child? Their new CD Survivor is out, their songs are taking over the airwaves and their videos are all over MTV and Much Music. What's next for the Texas gals? How about movie theaters! They aren't starring in their own Charlie's Angels movie or anything, but they are taking their concert to the theater. Destiny's Child - Survivor in Concert will play in select movie theaters in five U.S. cities including Dallas and New York at the beginning of May. The show captures the girls shakin' their booties in front of 60,000 fans in their hometown of Houston, Texas.
Grease is not the word for *NSYNC who were supposed to star in the movie Grease 3. According to Much Music, *NSYNC is not doing the movie because they were unable to get the rights to the Grease name and characters. However, Lance Bass and Joey Fatone have been busy filming their movie On The L in Toronto. The comedy is due out this fall.
No Doubt are madly writing songs for the follow-up to Return of Saturn. This time around Gwen and the boys are teaming up with Prince, Dr. Dre and the Eurythmics' Dave Stewart. Gwen's been singing with other artist like Moby and Eve - guess she's got the duet bug. The band hasn't set a release date yet but I hope we won't have to wait as long as we did for Return of Saturn.
Britney is set to sing with the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, at his comeback concert special called Michael Jackson: The Solo Years 30th Anniversary Celebration on September 7th, 2001. The show will be held at NY's Madison Square Garden and Jacko is also scheduled to perform with *NSYNC and Whitney Houston. Hmm... I wonder if Janet will perform with her bro?
In other Britney news... the word on the street is that Dido is giving Britney a hand with her new album. Dido wrote two tracks and produced a couple of other songs for the follow-up album to Oops! That should be very interesting, as Dido's style seems a little more relaxed than Brit's.
