Spears Back On Top After Record-Breaking Sales Week

15 October 2008 6:56 AM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Britney Spears' pop comeback is complete - she's back on top of the U.S. charts thanks to a record-breaking sales week.

The singer's Womanizer tune has scored the biggest chart jump to number one in Billboard Hot 100 history after rocketing up 95 spots from last week's 96 to get there.

It's the first time Spears has been on top since her debut single ...Baby One More Time hit number one at the beginning of 1999.

The feat marks the third time in the past two months that the record for the biggest jump to number one has been shattered - rapper T.I. soared 70 spots with his Whatever You Like at the beginning of September, and he toppled himself last week (ends10Oct08) when he took his Rihanna duet Live Your Life from 80 to one.

Womanizer tops the new chart thanks to download sales of 286,000 - the biggest opening-week tally by a female artist since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking digital downloads in 2003. »

8 September 2008 12:11 AM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

One-time pop rivals and former Mickey Mouse Club darlings Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears were the toast of Hollywood on Sunday night at the MTV Video Music Awards.

Spears opened the show with a toast to the prizegiving on its 25th anniversary and went on to pick up her first of three VMA 'moonmen' prizes for her Piece of Me video.

And new mom Christina Aguilera stole the show with her comeback; in what was her first public performance since becoming a mum in January, the busty blonde showed off her new X-Men-style look and disco sound.

Wearing black leather and a black eye mask, the Genie in a Bottle singer stunned with new single Keeps Getting Better.

Other performers, like Pink, T.I. and the Jonas Brothers used the VMAs' Paramount Pictures site to launch into tunes from the studio's backlot.

And the night was full of live collaborations - Kid Rock performed his summer anthem All Summer Long with Lil Wayne, while Rihanna and T.I. teamed up and Leona Lewis tackled the Animals' Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood with Lil Wayne.

Kanye West brought the climax to the show a year after insisting he'd never return to the event after his treatment at the 2007 VMAs in Las Vegas.

The night's winners were:

Best Female Video - Piece of Me by Britney Spears

Best Male Video - With You by Chris Brown

Best Dancing in A Video - When I Grow Up by Pussycat Dolls

Best Rock Video - Shadow of The Day by Linkin Park

Best Hip Hop Video - Lollipop by Lil Wayne

Best New Artist - Tokio Hotel

Best Pop Video - Piece of Me by Britney Spears

Piven Denies 'Diva' Reputation

2 September 2008 5:02 AM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Entourage star Jeremy Piven has been forced to deny his "diva" antics cost him the job of hosting a forthcoming fashion event in New York.

The actor hosted Fashion Rocks in 2007 but this year he has been replaced by Rescue Me star Denis Leary - amid rumours that Piven's outlandish demands infuriated staff at last year's event.

A source tells New York Post gossip column PageSix that the star demanded a separate backstage green room and insisted on rewriting the script at the last minute.

The source says, "(Piven) was a nightmare. And it wasn't even funny. (This year will see) a more trustworthy and mature host."

But a representative for Piven has denied that the star acted inappropriately at last year's concert - insisting he worked hard to perfect his onstage routine.

The spokesman says, "Not true. He had his own room, just like everyone else, and came in a week early to work on the script as expected."

Fashion Rocks - a collaboration between musicians and fashion designers - will this year feature performances from Beyoncé Knowles, Rihanna and Justin Timberlake and will air in the U.S. on 9 September. »
