Katy Perry has filed a lawsuit against Australian magazine NW for claiming she cheated on husband Russell Brand. The publication ran a cover story last month detailing Perry’s alleged affair with producer Benny Blanco.
Perry’s lawsuit, which was filed against the magazine’s publishers on Wednesday in Australia’s Victoria Supreme Court, claims the singer has been “gravely injured in her reputation and feelings (and) has suffered distress, embarrassment and humiliation.” Perry is pursing damages for this defamation, as well as aggravated damages, which would be worth a six-figure sum if she wins, according to PopEater.
NW’s March headlines read “World Exclusive: Katy’s Other Man—Split Fears After Shock Revelation,” stating that Perry had an “intimate relationship” with Blanco, who has produced songs for her as well as Britney Spears, Ke$ha and Mike Posner. The story cited Perry’s “friend” Angela Summers and “insider” Marlon David, both of whom Perry says she’s never heard of.
We’ve now officially heard two songs off Britney Spears‘ highly-anticipated new album, Femme Fatale, which is set to be released on March 22nd. Following last week’s release of her new single, “Till the World Ends,” a tracklisting for the disc (which has been confirmed to be true by Spears’ website), has now appeared online.
The final tracklisting for the album was posted on Spears’ website later on Friday. The album has 12 tracks (with production work by familiar faces: Dr. Luke, Max Martin, Benny Blanco, Bloodshy and will.i.am) while the deluxe edition will boast four extra songs (produced by hitmakers including Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins and Stargate).
Spears appeared on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show last Friday to premiere “Till the World Ends” and said she was excited about the new song’s vibe. “‘Till the World Ends’ is fun! It’s fun. I like it,” Spears said. “It’s good energy. I’m a vibe person, and I think I love good-mood songs, and if it puts me in a good mood, it clicks for me.”
Check out the complete tracklisting for Femme Fatale below.
Britney Spears has officially announced the title of her new album. The disc, which will be released March 15, is titled Femme Fatale.
Spears tweeted a photo of the album cover earlier today, saying “I’ve poured my heart and soul into this album over the last 2 years. I’ve put everything I have into it. This album is for you, my fans, who have always supported me and have stuck by me every step of the way! I love you all! Sexy and Strong. Dangerous yet mysterious. Cool yet confident!”
The album cover is, of course, a close up photograph of Spears looking very glowy and seductive. In December, Spears tweeted, “Had such an amazing photo shoot with Mario Testino today,” however it’s unclear whether this is one of the to which photos she was referring.
According to the press release announcing the album’s title, Femme Fatale is “a tribute to bold, empowered, confident, elusive, fun, flirty women and men. It’s not a conceptual album, Spears is letting the music speak for itself.”
If you’re like us, you’ve had “Black and Yellow” stuck in your head, so this will come as good news: Wiz Khalifa has announced that he will release his major label debut, Rolling Papers, on March 29 via Rostrum/Atlantic.
The album will feature production by Benny Blanco, Jim Jonsin and Stargate (who produced the album’s first single, “Black and Yellow”). The second single, “Roll Up,” will be released next Monday, January 31.
In a press release, Khalifa (whom we named our “Best New Artist of 2010“) said of the disc’s title, “I quit writing a long time ago. I stopped physically writing it down or putting it in my BlackBerry or iPhone. I write notes down, but I don’t write whole verses, so it was like saying goodbye to the paper. The paper’s rolling out too. So everything is real natural. The first thing that came to my head is how I really, really feel. I feel like this is my most natural sound. I paid the most attention to this shit when I did it. I was real focused. I was real keyed in on this shit when I was working on it and I didn’t use any paper, except for rolling papers.”
We know what you’re thinking: Two pop songs are similar? How could this possibly be? But the plot thickens when you consider that both tracks were co-written and produced by Dr. Luke and Benny Blanco, who seem to write every pop song on the radio these days. Take a listen below and decide for yourself.
