Slave 4..are you hot or are you cold?

Though the term “bastard pop” first became popular in 2001, the practice of assembling new songs from purloined elements of other tracks stretches back to the beginnings of recorded music.

I don’t know why they had to go calling names. It’s not bastard pop, this music isn’t meant to be irritating and it’s certainly not a person born from unmarried parents.

Mash-ups like this one make me want to grab my own music-production-fixa software eg. Mackie Tracktion.

Biggest star of the past decade?

Britters
Pop princess Britney Spears has been voted as the biggest star of the past decade as per a new Internet poll.

Spears, 28, who shot to fame at the end of the 1990s, has dominated the charts and newspaper headlines throughout the past 10 years, reports Contactmusic.

And visitors to PopEater.com found her to be the 00s’ top celebrity.

Thirty-five per cent of more than 25,000 voters placed the singer above actress and humanitarian Angelina Jolie, who drew 26 per cent of the votes.

Beyonce Knowles came third ahead of Justin Timberlake, Tom Cruise and Paris Hilton. (ANI)

Additionally, rumor has it, the singer’s beau, Jason Trawick met with her ex-husband, Kevin Federline to ask for his blessings to marry her.

Wahlberg is hitched, Brit is blonde and Entourage is a hit

Jude Law was shocked to find out he’d gotten model Samantha Burke pregnant with his fourth child – he thought she was on the Pill, it has been claimed.

“Jude assumed she was on the Pill,” a source told Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper. “He was stunned at being informed of the pregnancy. Jude feels like now he has been made to look the bad guy. One of the reasons their brief relationship didn’t work out is because Samantha was a little too keen.

She claimed she was falling in love after just a couple of weeks.”

And that is what you get for assuming…

Oxygen Tanks, Tom Hanks and MTV Awards

Britney Spears has many demands, but when she is staying at a hotel while on tour she has some interesting ones indeed.

Among her requests: a room that has “never” been smoked in, humidifiers in all areas, a selection of current magazines, fresh flowers she’ll arrange herself, chick-lit novels, DVDs of Marilyn Monroe movies, 100-watt light bulbs, running routes for Hyde Park and more. She won’t need special pillows because she bring her own. And one more thing: Security will sleep outside her room.

She also recently decided she wanted to shell out $30K on an oxygen chamber.

“Since her Vancouver gig, where she ran off stage as it was too smoky, she’s become paranoid about breathing in too much bad air,” a source told British newspaper The Sun. “She’s keen on an oxygen chamber that will reverse any smoke inhalation damage.”

Spears isn’t the only star to indulge in the the expensive gadget – Madonna, Mick Jagger and Michael Jackson all own one.

Tom Hanks has declared he is finally confident about his acting ability.

“I no longer feel insecure about my acting. Early on I took any job that was offered, milking it for the money,” said the double Oscar-winner.

“I had no idea what I was doing – that’s when insecurity and self-loathing start.”

The 52-year-added that he has also thrown away his vanity.

“After a while you have to give up being vain. In [new film] Angels And Demons I have to wear a Speedo to go swimming,” Hanks told Britain’s Radio Times.

“It takes a real man to slap on a Speedo and say, ‘I’m ready for work.'”

The singer is reportedly furious with her ex-husband – with who she has two children, Sean Preston, three, and Jayden James, two – after he proposed to current girlfriend Victoria Prince because she still has feelings for him.

A source close to Britney – who is rumoured to be dating her backing dancer Chase Benz – said: “Britney’s face fell when Kevin told her he had proposed. She’s been flirting with her dancers and has a thing going on with Chase but she still loves Kevin and always hoped they’d get back together.”

Ashton Kutcher Twitter Winner!

Game on. The race to 1 million followers on Twitter has a new player, after singer Britney Spears’ manager made it known she has joined the competition.

For those who have not heard about it, the race started earlier this week when actor Ashton Kutcher challenged cable news channel CNN to a Twitter duel, promising to ring CNN founder Ted Turner’s doorbell if he wins.

Then on Wednesday, Spears’ manager posted the following statement on her Twitter page. “Let’s get Brit across the million mark!,” he wrote. It was the equivalent of the United States joining World War I after sitting on the sidelines, because Spears is a Twitter powerhouse with more than 940,000 followers as of Thursday afternoon.

Kutcher had challenged CNN to the Twitter race, saying he would donate 10,000 mosquito bed nets to charity for World Malaria Day in late April if he beat CNN, and 1,000 if he lost. CNN agreed to do the same.

And Kutcher wound up the winner. Go Ashton!

It’s one of the most shrouded summer movie mysteries: What will actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt look like as masked baddie Cobra Commander in “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra”?

The 28-year-old actor isn’t giving away any details, but Gordon-Levitt says the villain’s look was the main reason he signed on for the movie, based on the popular Hasbro toy line.

“The way the character looks, that’s what ultimately convinced me to do the part,” he says. “I saw the designs and drawings of the way they interpreted my character for this movie – the costume, the whole getup – and I was like, ‘Oh, wow. I get to be that guy? Fantastic. Sign me up. Please. Thank you.'”

Megan Fox will be playing the She-Hulk.

A source said: “‘She-Hulk’ comics are popular so it’s only natural that the character makes the transition to the big screen.

“The idea is to make She-Hulk sexier but even more savage than the Hulk, which is why Megan is the big favorite for the lead. She’ll be green of course and will have to hang on to a few more pieces of clothes than the male version when she transforms!”

Megan Fox has a nice body, I admit this, but she does NOT have a Hulkish body. This will not work and I hope it’s not set in stone.
