Britney’s new single was released just in time for Claire’s birthday. It is called “Womanizer.” On my first listen (at work, snuck into the board room) I was not over-the-moon, ecstatic, zomg. BUT let me tell you that (1) Britter’s second singles are always better than her first (see: Toxic, Piece of Me, Stronger) and (2) this song gets really awesome really quickly. Just listen to it twice more and you will lurve it. I like the stuttering chorus best because it is effing fun to sing along to. It def harks back to the “ooh ooh baby” song from Blackout, but has less of that weird hockey anthem vibe and more awesomesauce. I have a feeling Circus is going to better than Blackout and that album is EXCELLENT.
in news of other returns of great things, Hank Moody and the Californication ace gang are back tonight on Showtime. I may get to watch the first four episodes tonight because some people have mad access to screening copies (not me). Sharelle, do not die of jealousy. What the heck is going to happen to Hank now that he’s got what he wants? Oh the temptation of life in Hell-A. You can follow Mia on Twitter if you are the kind of person who follows fictional characters on social networking sites (I am). And you can follow me on Twitter if you are the kind of person who understands the point of Twitter at all (I do not but still I twitt).
Today is Word on the Street and there are millions, literally MILLIONS, of ECWers reading. I’m a-heading down later this afternoon for some bookish excellence. There are loads of ECW book launches in the next few months, especially in the next few weeks: the Show that Smells launch, the Dora Borealis launch, and the Richard Crouse TINARS event. We are going to have a laugh and a half so you should come on out.
Anyway, my two main nitpicks are (1) way too many headscarves! what is going on? are they on Team Serena? and (2) the girls go to anexclusive yacht party (“Kanye might show”) and they need to step up the fashion. So the Pushover Girl, Rose, wears a dress that Miley Cyrus wore to the Country Music Awards two years ago.
FAIL. We remember these things, Costume Designer. Especially when one has worked on a book on Ms. Miley. I might know what Miley wore to every awards show ever so don’t try trotting that stuff out again.
Tonight is also Gossip Girl night on A-Channel. Serena and Blair have a total friendship meltdown as S decides to stop living in the shadows and be the socialite/model she was born to be. The preview makes it look like S is modeling in Eleanor Waldorf’s Fashion Week show. Did they learn nothing from last season’s “S models in an Eleanor Waldorf campaign” episode? GEEZ.
