While Mathew Knowles‘ dismissal as Beyonce‘s manager continues to make headlines, the ripple effects of their business split is starting to become apparent. A ripple effect which has had unfortunate consequences for talented young vocalist Tiffany Evans.

And people thought that they still hated each other. Christina Aguilera made the surprising decision to reach out to Britney Spears on Twitter just minutes ago to congratulate her fellow Pop star on the release of her new album, ‘Femme Fatale’.
Aguilera and Spears were involved in a longtime feud following constant media comparisons during the peak of their careers in early 2000s. The tension climaxed after the duo performed alongside Madonna at the 2003 MTV VMAs where Aguilera accused Spears of using her controversial kiss with the icon as publicity for her ‘In The Zone’ LP.
Spears jokingly responded to her peer’s claims on ‘TRL’ days later by highlighting the fact that Aguilera kissed Madonna as well and was simply jealous. See what Aguilera tweeted to Spears below:
Get your pillows ready because Britney Spears has just revealed the list of dates for her upcoming tour with Enrique Iglesias. The 26-date US trek is set to be launch in Sacramento, California on June 17th.

Having trouble sleeping? Then take a dose of Britney Spears’ performances on ‘Good Morning America’. The shameless lip-syncer’s appearance on the show aired today, just in time to promote her recently released ‘Femme Fatale’ album.

Pop superstar Britney Spears‘ 7th studio album ‘Femme Fatale’ arrived stores worldwide today.
The eagerly anticipated set has both industry insiders and fans alike abuzz. For, as well as being the singer’s first original collection of tracks in 3 years, the release is one of the biggest on Sony Music’s calendar. Put simply, there is expectedly a lot of pressure on the album to deliver both musically and saleswise.
Early indications suggest on the musical front, Spears is onto a winner. After all, the project’s lead single ‘Hold It Against Me’ hit #1 on charts around the world including Billboard’s Hot 100, where follow-up single ‘Till The World Ends’ also occupies a top ten position.
However, with so-so reviews for ‘Fatale’, and even more questionable performances to support it, many have been left wondering just how much tank is left in Machine Britney. Particularly as more pervasive machines continue to populate the Pop landscape (see: Lady GaGa, Rihanna, Beyonce).
In any case, we want to hear from you…
The King of Pop may no longer be here with us, however his spirit undeniably lives on. This, a mindset the makers of Michael Jackson‘s ‘Hollywood Tonight’ video clung tightly to while filming the clip for the single .
