Britney Spears Books TV Appearances, Talks 'Fresh' New CD

Jive Records(NEW YORK) -- Britney Spears' new album Femme Fatale isn't out yet, but it's already on a roll -- the first single, Hold It Against Me, hit #1, and now the second single, Till the World Ends, has just become her tenth top-10 hit. 

Britney will travel to San Francisco to record her upcoming Good Morning America concert performance on March 27; it'll air on March 29, the day Femme Fatale comes out.  That same day, MTV will host a "Britney takeover day."  At some point that week, Britney will appear on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and on April 2, she'll appear on Nickelodeon's Kid's Choice Awards.  Meanwhile, Britney is gearing up to shoot the video for Till The World Ends, which was written by Ke$ha.

Meanwhile, Britney tells Rolling Stone that her vision for Femme Fatale was to "make a dance album that was ahead of everything else out there, but unique to me," and "a fresh-sounding album for the clubs, or something that you play in your car when you're going out at night that gets you excited." She says, "I think my first two singles...sound completely different from anything else and I think when my fans hear the rest of Femme Fatale, they'll see how fresh every song is."

Even though Britney has worked with big-name producers on her albums, she says she's no pawn: she's always been the one to call the shots.  She tells Rolling Stone, "I have always been heavily involved in every album I have ever made. I'm very stubborn when it comes to recording and will only record songs I love, which is why it takes me a long time to make an album."  She adds, "I guess it's a good process because I love all of my music. I know there are a lot of artists that hate songs they recorded. I don’t feel that way."

Avril LaVigne Covers Ke$ha's 'Tik Tok' for British Radio

D Dipasupil/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Before super-producer Dr. Luke created hits for Katy Perry and Ke$ha, he worked with Avril Lavigne.  So it's not so surprising that Avril would feel comfortable covering one of Dr. Luke's biggest hits of the past year for BBC's Radio 1 Live Lounge, a show that features artists doing acoustic covers of other performer's songs.  Avril did an acoustic version of Ke$ha's smash hit Tik Tok for the show, and perfectly mimicked Ke$ha's half-rapping, half-singing delivery.

Avril's new CD, Goodbye Lullaby, is in stores now.  She'll appear on The View on Wednesday, and on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Monday, March 14.  On Tuesday, she'll be on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and Chelsea Lately will welcome her on March 21.
