NSYNC Reunion?!?!

Justin Timberlake could soon be returning to his musical roots if Lance Bass has his way - the singer is keen to reunite 90s boyband 'N Sync.

The boyband split in 2002 and the stars went on to pursue solo projects - but Bass wants to bring the band back together to record new material.

He tells In Touch, 
"It's a definite possibility. We are like brothers - it's perfect."

Bass, who finished third in the final of U.S. reality show Dancing With The Stars earlier this week, has been bombarded with offers since his appearance on the hit show - but music is the only thing on his mind.

He adds, "There are so many crazy doors opening. 
There is talk of putting an album together next year, but I would much rather do it with 'N Sync. So we are going to be talking about that."

What do you think? Excited?

Quick Updates

Alicia Keys, Christina Aguilera, and John Legend honored those making a difference in the world on “CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute,” which aired on Thanksgiving Day.

Katy Perry has a girl crush on Natalie Portman. The singer recently revealed that her smash hit single I Kissed a Girl was inspired by actress Scarlett Johansson. She says, "Scarlett Johansson is a beautiful woman as everybody in the world probably agrees and the I Kissed a Girl song is inspired by all beautiful women and the power they release in their beauty.

Miley Cyrus has been inspired to give up her acting/singing career to study photography following her controversial shoot with legendary snapper Annie Leibovitz. The Hannah Montana star sparked outrage by posing in just a bedsheet for a Leibovitz spread in Vanity Fair magazine earlier this year. But the singer/actress was so fascinated watching the artist at work, she is now determined to gain a degree in photography herself. And Cyrus is convinced that the best way to study the medium is by enrolling at a university in Britain. She says, "I do want to come to London to study photography. I hear there are some really great art schools, so I would love to do that."

According to BritneySpears.Com,  Britney’s X Factor appearance pulled 12.8 million viewers meaning more than 53 percent of the entire viewing audience tuned into the UK show to see Britney’s performance.

How Did Aubrey O'Day Spend Her Thanksgiving?

Aubrey O’Day helped serve a Thanksgiving meal to the homeless at the New York City Rescue Mission on Thursday. Her mother, Kandy O'Day was there too.

Solange Still In Beyonce's Shadow..

BEYONCE's younger sister SOLANGE KNOWLES had to fight to get her songs heard by top music producers - because no one wanted to be known for helping out the sibling of a superstar.
Solange, 22, recently released her second album Sol-Angel and the Hadley St Dreams, but she admits having such a famous star in the family was more of a hindrance than a help as she struggled to win over big names like Q-Tip and Pharrell Williams with her own talents.
She tells Britain's Hello magazine, "I can see how people would think that I'm here because of Beyonce. "But with this record, that really wasn't in my head. I started this record completely independently - I had no record label, I had no main producer, and everyone turned me down.
"Probably because of that, like, 'We're not going to reward her because she's Beyonce's sister', and I understood that."

MTV's Aids Awareness Turns 10

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

MTV marks the 10th anniversary of its AIDS awareness campaign this year with an hour-long documentary by U.S. singer and Destiny's Child founding member Kelly Rowland. 

The music channel launched "MTV Staying Alive" in 1998, and has produced films, competitions and celebrity tie-ins to educate young people about the risks of HIV and AIDS and encourage them to talk about it. 

The latest initiative is a video diary featuring Rowland, who along with Beyonce Knowles helped launch the successful girl band Destiny's Child in 1990. The group split in 2005. 

In "
The Diary of Kelly Rowland," the 27-year-old travels to South Africa, Kenya, Tanzania and the United States and meets young people affected by HIV/AIDS and those trying to educate people about the risks. 

"It places HIV/AIDS out in the open, and in doing so creates an openness of dialogue on the 'taboo' subject," MTV said in a statement. 

The video can be watched at from Monday, which is World AIDS Day.

Aubrey O'Day Poses For Playboy!?

Aubrey O’Day has gone all the way. In a not-so-surprising move, Diddy’s former least innocent angel has reportedly posed nude for Playboy.

The ex-Danity Kane member spent all day at a Manhattan photo studio on Tuesday doing a spread for the popular men’s magazine, according The photos were taken by photographer Markus Klinko (Mariah Carey, Beyoncé). Lion cubs were supposedly involved in the shoot.

Mariah Carey Pregnant?

Is Mariah Carey pregnant? No way, the singer insists on Wednesday's episode of Ellen
But Ellen 
DeGeneres seemed determined to put her to the test. "Let's just toast with Champagne," the sly talk show host suggested, reaching for a bottle and some flutes. "It's just fattening," demurred Carey – who married Nick Cannon in May – adding, "This is peer pressure!" 
When DeGeneres persisted, the two clinked glasses – but Carey only 
pretended to drink the wine. "You're pregnant!" DeGeneres declared. "No, no, no," Carey insisted. "We will let you know when we're going to have a family." 
So why refuse the bubbly? 
"It's too early for me," explained the Grammy-winner. "I only drink after 3 p.m." 
She then only pretended to sip the bubbly.
So on second thought..."You're pregnant," Ellen said.
But still Mariah resisted: "I didn’t say that. No, no, no. My mother would be at home like, on the computer like, What are you talking about? We will let you know when we’re going to have a family."

All Eyes On Me In The Center Of The Ring Just Like A Circus

A year after her very public meltdown, Britney Spears is back to work and out of trouble. But what has the comeback cost her? Rolling Stone has Britney’s full story in the issue of Rolling Stone that hits newsstands this week. “I feel like an old person now,” Spears tells RS’s Jenny Eliscu. “I do! I go to bed at, like, 9:30 every night, and I don’t go out or anything, you know what I mean? I just feel like an old fart.” Spears says she’s considering lopping off the weave she’s worn since shaving her head in 2007, and counts up her tattoos (they now number seven), giggling.

Critics Review Kanye's 808s And Heartbreak

Kanye West’s new album 808s & Heartbreak hits stores and the internet today. What are the critics saying about Kanye?

The Washington Post: 808s & Heartbreak [is] an album so exquisite, so assured, it threatens to invent an entirely new strand of urban pop music. The result is the best album released this year, an information-age masterpiece about falling into the depths of loneliness while a nation of millions checks your blog for updates.

Chicago Tribune:This is not the album Kanye West fans likely expected, nor is it one they likely will embrace as eagerly as his previous multimillion-sellers. It also assumes that West’s fans care about his inner life, even though endless controversies have given them good reason to write him off. West plows ahead anyway. This one is for him. 4 out of 5

USA Today: His career has been built on pushing boundaries and expanding possibilities. This time, the Louis Vuitton Don does it by stripping away the celebrity trappings and exposing his naked emotions. 4 out of 4

Los Angeles Times: Though several tracks—the oddly peppy “Paranoid” and “Robocop,” about a monstrous ex—are danceable, 808s & Heartbreak heavily endorses the rave scene’s concept of “chill.” Its mood comes closest to the vaporous electronica of obscure artists like the Junior Boys and M83.

Chicago Sun-Times: The formula is touching and very effective at times, notably on “Say You Will,” “Welcome to Heartbreak,” “Coldest Winter” (which builds on the 1983 Tears for Fears song “Memories Fade”), “RoboCop,” and “Love Lockdown.” But a formula it is, and it wears thin and becomes slightly predictable and repetitive over the course of 12 tracks.

Boston Globe: It is by far the strangest record he’s ever made: a willfully sullen and uncompromising electro-pop album from one of hip-hop’s biggest stars. Aside from the first two singles (”Love Lockdown,” “Heartless”), much of 808ssounds like a sonic wasteland, with West’s digitized voice floating in like a tumbleweed.

The Guardian (U.K.): Predictably, the hardcore are baffled (sample Internet response: “Has Kanye gone crazy?”) but West stopped appealing to them after he toured with U2. He’s a pop star now, and, thankfully, an iconoclastic one.
4 out of 5

My Favorites: Love Lockdown, Amazing, and Paranoid
