New Britney Photoshoot With Sean & Jayden

Written by admin. Posted in Comeback

Manhattan Beach California resident, fashion photographer, Dani Brubaker, shoots private portrait sessions with the queen of pop, Britney Spears and her two boys – Sean Preston and Jayden James.

Ms. Spears admired Dani’s fashion photography, connected with the imagery and requested Dani photograph her family. Dani was given exclusive access to photograph Britney and her sons.

The photos, taken in Ms. Spears home, depict the children and Ms. Spears playing in the yard. The classic, black and white photographs are stunningly beautiful and represent the bond between the children and their mother. Ms. Spears was overwhelmed with the images. About the experience Dani says, “The kids were so adorable, it’s obvious they are well loved.”

Elegant composition and lighting, happy, energetic boys, girls and tweens – and stunning, sexy adults showcasing fresh, trend setting new fashion, is what Dani excels at. Her keen attention to style and detail, reassert the ambitions of growth, manufacturers desire and eye-catching imagery that buyers love. Dani closely collaborates with her clients, delivering imaginative, engaging imagery that directly contributes to the growth of the brand.

Regarding her photography, Dani states, “For me it’s all about the eyes, the connection I have with my subjects. My camera embodies a powerful medium of expression and communication; nothing is more moving than capturing raw human emotion …whether it’s a twinkle in a child’s eye or the playful banter between children, or the wholesome, sexy glance of an adult. Capturing those moments for posterity is what my photographs are about.”

This isn’t saying that we will ever get to see these pictures, though.

Britney The Most Searched Person Of 2007

Written by admin. Posted in Personal Issues

It may not have been a particularly good year for Britney Spears, but at the very least, it was an interesting year.

A shaved head, a stint in rehab and numerous other missteps combined to make the embattled pop princess the most popular Yahoo search term of 2007.

Spears, who turned 26 on Sunday, drew public curiosity over antics that included attacking a paparazzo’s car with an umbrella, losing custody of her children to ex-husband Kevin Federline and releasing her first studio album in four years.

Noteworthy as her actions of the past year may have been, Spears is no stranger to the Yahoo top 10 list, having led the list for six out of the past seven years. In 2004, she briefly ceded her top spot to Paris Hilton, only to reclaim it the following year.

Hilton, in turn, came in third on the list, thanks in large part to her 45-day jail sentence in a reckless driving case. Last year, she was the number five most-searched term.

For the second year in a row, World Wrestling Entertainment placed second on the list, with an enormous amount of interest generated by Chris Benoit, the wrestler who killed his wife and son before committing suicide in June.

Naruto, a Japanese manga cartoon, was the fourth most popular term, edging out Beyoncé, who came in fifth.

Two DUI arrests and three stints in rehab added up to a sixth-place finish for Lindsay Lohan, moving the actress up from her 10th place slot last year.

Online gaming held down two slots in the top 10, with RuneScape coming at number seven and fantasy football at number eight.

Fergie’s lady lumps were lovely enough to warrant a ninth-place slot, while Jessica Alba rounded out the list at number 10.

Among the formerly popular terms to drop off this year’s list were American Idol, Pamela Anderson, Jessica Simpson, Chris Brown and Shakira.

Early "Piece Of Me" Chart Watch

Written by admin. Posted in Charts

Seen as “Gimme More” is nearing the end of its long run in charts all over the world, it’s time to start reporting some “Piece Of Me” chart positions!

The song is currently at #19 on the US iTunes store, based on downloads of it as an album track. Airplay wise, it’s doing quite well so far, it’s reached #32 on Pop stations, but I don’t think it’s been released officially to radio yet (it was meant to go for adds on November 27th but I haven’t heard anything since before that.)

On the official US Billboard Hot 100 it’s at #63 due to unofficial radio play and legal downloads of it as an album track.   It’s at #27 on the Canadian version of the same chart.

That’s it for now…

"Blackout" Sales Still Suffering In The UK

Written by admin. Posted in Blackout, Charts

Britney’s latest album “Blackout” has fallen another 20 places this week to #70 in the official UK albums chart.  Hopefully it will rise substantially when “Piece Of Me” is released next month.

On the plus side, “Gimme More” is still holding strong, it hasn’t moved since last week, staying at #18 on the official singles chart.
