MTV Buzzworthy — Britney Spears photo retrospective
Britney's Teens, I mean DIVAS, will be taking The X Factor stage tonight!!! The contestants gave The X Factor the inside scoop:
Arin Ray decides less is more: "It's most definitely different this week. I did two upbeat songs [last two weeks], so to go slower is good. I don't have too many dancers onstage. You just get the real me. I'm going to try not to do so much because when you do so much that can actually take away from your performance a bit. Less is more. I wanted to do something real special."
Beatrice Miller shares her "oh crap" moment: "I'm not really into the modern divas, I guess. Of course, I respect them all, but like Beyonce and Madonna, I don't really listen to their music. I listen to older stuff, so I was a little nervous. I was like, 'Oh crap. They have such big ranges and I really don't.' I don't sing in that style. So, I got a diva that isn't really known for being a diva, but she is more of an oldies singer, which is cool. The song is slow, which is good for me."
2nd Place — Carly Rose Sonenclar (Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On")
7th Place — Diamond White (Beyoncé's "Halo")
8th Place — Beatrice Miller (Cyndi Lauper's "Time After Time")
9th Place — Arin Ray (Madonna's "Crazy For You")
Oh my goodness!!! The BIGGEST thank u from me & all my teens. U all never cease to amaze me - love u! #ThankYouBritneyArmy

I've been waiting for tonight's Whitney Houston tribute special ever since I saw these pics of Britney Spears as a presenter for the show. Love that dress! Brit is a longtime fan of Whitney's and cites the "I Will Always Love You" singer as a driving force in inspiring her career. Be sure to tune in to the touching tribute to a music legend tonight at 10pm ET on CBS.
Honored to have been a part of the Whitney Houston Tribute recently - she will always have a special place in my heart & I miss her...

Britney briefly appeared on last night's Restore The Shore Hurricane Sandy Telethon on MTV, encouraging folks to donate to the Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund. Lives were lost, homes were destroyed and businesses were ruined. The Shore that so many of us know and love is a complete wreck. It makes me so sad, as I'm a definite Shore girl! Some of my favorite memories took place at Point Pleasant and in Seaside Heights. Check out the clips and find out how you can help below. xx
Seeing the devastation firsthand through the eyes of Jersey Shore cast member Snooki breaks my heart:
Here's how you can help:
Few things are sacred when it comes to Britney — be it photos, videos, music and new will.i.am singles that feature the one and only Britney Spears. 'Tis the nature of the Britney beast; when you're that talented, fans can't get enough. *cough* ME! *cough*
The highly anticipated "Scream And Shout" single by will.i.am featuring Britney hits radio tomorrow and iTunes later this week! Thanks to whoever leaked the track online, #ScreamAndShout has been trending on Twitter all afternoon. If you can't beat 'em, join 'em! (Right?) If you've already heard the track...I have to ask, what do y'all think?? xx
Can't say I'm thrilled our song leaked but…
