We can hardly contain our "Twilight"-obsessed excitement for Thursday, November 3, at 7:56 p.m. ET when we will premiere a never-before-released clip from the hugely anticipated "Breaking Dawn - Part 1" live on-air, to be introduced by megastars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner.

This extra-special event is "MTV First: Breaking Dawn - Part 1," which is an opportunity for us to provide our fellow "Twilight" fans with some insider excitement surrounding the impending release of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 1," due November 18, and catch up with the three actors following the clip's debut on MTV.com.

To get a feel for what members of the "Twilight" fandom hope to hear or see next week, MTV News sought out the expertise of Laura Byrne-Cristiano, who owns TwilightLexicon.com; Kara Hassell of TwilightersAnonymous.com; and Kallie Mathews from TwilightSeriesTheories.com.

In the exclusive clip, Byrne-Cristiano and Mathews hope to see some reactions to Bella's pregnancy from the wolf pack, while Hassell hopes more humans are involved.

"I love the Cullens and werewolves as much as the next 'Twilight' fan, but I'm dying to see a little snark from Charlie Swan (Billy Burke) or Jessica Stanley (Anna Kendrick)," Hassell said.

The ladies are also eager to see the dynamic between Stewart, Pattinson and Lautner during the MTV.com Q&A following the premiere of the clip.

"I hope and expect to see some great chemistry and a lot of comedy from the three," Hassell said. "We've seen them individually in interviews recently, but it's always a whole different ballgame when they are all together."

"I would really love to hear them discuss acting together, i.e. when Jacob finds out that Bella is preggers," Mathews added. "And what it was like to play off of each other's emotions in such an intense scene."

"[I would like to know] what scene are they the proudest of that they took part in," Byrne-Cristiano said. "In terms of end result on film."

Continuing with the theme of patiently waiting and eager anticipation, how are our dedicated experts preparing for the film's opening day and making the wait less painful?

"I'm so busy grabbing every interview and news story. It takes my mind off of it," Byrne-Cristiano said. "Plus, we are planning this big private movie showing for our fans in the Nashville area, so I've been really busy with that."

"I have re-watched each of the first three films, and I have the soundtracks on repeat in my car!" Hassell admitted.

"I am planning to be at the premiere with the rest of the fans!" Mathews said. "We are also giving away a ton of 'Twilight' merchandise at TwilightSeriesTheories.com leading up to the release. I will stay very busy!"

Don't forget: Fans can get in on our interviews with Stewart, Pattinson and Lautner by submitting video or text questions via MTV.com or Twitter (using @MTVNews, plus the hashtags #AskTwilight and #MTVFirst).

Be sure to tune in to "MTV First: Breaking Dawn - Part 1," which kicks off Thursday, November 3, on MTV at 7:56 p.m, followed by a Q&A with Kristen, Rob and Taylor on MTV.com!

Check out everything we've got on "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1."

Nick Jonas & Delta Goodrem's Good Neighbor Lunch Date

With their relationship still going strong, Nick Jonas and his girlfriend Delta Goodrem enjoyed a relaxing lunch date in Studio City, CA over the weekend (October 29).

The casually clad couple loving walked hand-in-hand as they opted to chow down at the Good Neighbor Restaurant during the Halloween weekend outing.

Meanwhile, Nick happened to be proudly wearing his Texas Rangers ballcap - despite his favorite team having lost Game 7 of the World Series to the St Louis Cardinals the previous night.

Of the contest, Jonas tweeted, ?Even though the Rangers didn?t win? That was hands down one of the greatest/most entertaining baseball games I?ve ever seen."

Sarah Jessica Parker Covers Marie Claire UK December 2011

She's a favorite when it comes to cover girls, and Sarah Jessica Parker finds herself front and center on the December 2011 issue of Marie Claire UK.

The "Sex and the City" actress brightens up the magazine's latest installment while posing for a Tesh shot spread and chatting with the publication about topics ranging from her marriage with Matthew Broderick to not wanting to be famous.

Highlight's from SJP's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to check out Marie Claire UK!

On a New York Post report claiming she complained about being called for jury duty:
"I was outraged by the character assassination! I have served so many times. I was asked to speak at Jury Appreciation Day! I expect I should be more calloused by now, but I'm so sensitive about not living up to anybody's worst idea about an actor."

On not wanting to be famous:
"I never wanted to be a celebrity; I never wanted to be famous. And in my daily life, I work really hard to not trade on it in any way. I am so worried about anybody saying, 'She's cut in line' or 'She took our table' or 'She got out of jury duty'. The comments that are counter to who I am and the way I live are the ones that bother me. It's not like it's hard to be decent and respectful and well-behaved. I do wait in line, and I do take the subway, and I do take the kids to school. But it almost doesn't matter to a certain segment of the populace - they're projecting onto you this status and entitlement I don't have."

On not taking anything for granted:
"We didn't have a lot when I was growing up, and it's the best thing that happened to me because I appreciate everything. I have a strong work ethic and don't take anything for granted."

On claims that husband Matthew Broderick resented her spending seven weeks filming in Morocco shortly after they adopted twins:
"No, no no! Matthew is a working actor, and he knows sometimes things require some hardship. It's the same when he goes away for two or three months at a time. We're accustomed to this, and he wouldn't have wanted it any other way for me."

On her passion for acting:
"I love, love, love being an actor. It's still the hardest and scariest thing I do, outside of parenting. But I love the opportunities, and if I can manage my time, and the children are OK and we're OK, it's hard to say no to things that are challenging and enriching."

Michelle Williams Covers ELLE UK December 2011

Nabbing yet another cover gig to add to her already impressive portfolio, Michelle Williams graces the front page of the December 2011 issue of ELLE UK.

The 31-year-old posed for a holiday-themed shoot taken by photographer Alexei Hay while looking chic in a Prada lip print short dress from the Resort 2012 collection.

As for her interview - which focused on her upcoming movie "My Week with Marilyn" - highlights as as follows. For more, be sure to check out ELLE UK!

On speaking to Marilyn?s ghost:
?While we were filming, something came out in the National Enquirer that a psychic had spoken to her and that she approved of what we were doing and she thought I was doing a really good job. So maybe she likes it!?

On Marilyn?s voice:
?I studied tapes. There?s really nothing that exists of her, that I could find anyway, that exists of her having a conversation with a friend? So there wasn?t a template that existed for her everyday vocal pattern, so at a certain point you have to make it imaginatively.?

On taking the role of Marilyn Monroe:
?I was so apprehensive. It was daunting living up to people?s expectations as well as my own expectations.?

On parallels with Monroe?s life:
?There were so many connections and parallels for me in making this film. I was 30 when making the movie, the same age Marilyn was when she filmed The Prince and the Showgirl, the picture our film is based around. We filmed in the same studio at Pinewood where that movie was made. I had the same dressing room Marilyn had used and we also shot at the same house, Parkside, where she had stayed during filming.?

On wanting to know the real Marilyn:
?I had always been more interested in the private Marilyn, and the unguarded Marilyn. Even as a young girl, my primary concern wasn?t with this larger than life personality smiling back from the wall but with what was going on underneath.?

On what Marilyn?s experience was like in England:
?What Marilyn anticipated happening and what actually happened were two very different things and they created discord and unhappiness for her in England. She was expecting to go to London and make a movie with the most esteemed actor of the time and hoped it would bring her the respect that she deserved and craved. When she arrived she felt she was being mistreated and laughed at. Olivier sneered at her and didn?t treat her with the kind of attention she was hoping for but when you watch the film now, you can see Marilyn wipes the floor with the rest of the cast. They are all very stiff, mannered and archaic but if she were making that movie today there is nothing about her performance that has gone out of fashion or faded. She is very real, very in the moment and so beautiful.?

Britney Spears, Boyfriend Get Steamy In 'Criminal' Video

Brit's real-life boyfriend Jason Trawick stars in Chris Marrs Piliero-directed clip.
By Jocelyn Vena

Britney Spears' posh but incredibly mean English boyfriend asks his lovely girlfriend, "Why don't we see that pretty little face of yours?" at the beginning of the "Criminal" video. That remark sets off a chain of events that will certainly leave Britney fans watching the Chris Marrs Piliero-directed ("I Wanna Go") video on repeat.

As Britney and her abusive beau make their way out of the party, with him yelling at her for standing up for herself as he flirted with other girls, they come across Britney's real-life boyfriend, Jason Trawick, who is playing one really hot bad guy with a heart of gold. The boyfriend slaps Britney, and Jason comes to her rescue, setting into motion their very hot — and very naked — love affair.

He takes her back to his place, where a headline reveals he's -- you guessed it — a criminal. But Britney doesn't seem to mind. She kisses him. He kisses her. They get it on, showing lots of skin and giving fans a sneak peek into their personal life.

They then head to a convenience store, where Britney decides to break loose and hold the place up, guns blazing. After the stickup, the pair steal a car and head back to Jason's loft for a very revealing shower scene that includes lingering shots on their wet, naked bodies.

As they wrap up the steamy shower session, the authorities close in on them, blasting bullets into the apartment. But Britney and Jason just continue to share passionate kisses as bullets soar around them John Woo-style.

Just when you think it's the end for pop's reigning Bonnie and Clyde, the police enter the apartment to see that the duo has escaped, unhurt, driving away on Jason's motorcycle. As the credits roll, everyone's left wondering what they will do next.

Britney first teased her "Criminal" single to MTV News when we caught up with her at the 2011 VMAs in August, and she was already thinking about what the visual element might look like. "Actually the song, when I first heard it, it's really different and it's not anything I've heard like this before," Brit said. "So I really wanted to deliver this song. I was thinking of a really cool concept for the video just to make it interesting," she added. "You'll have to see."

Shot in London in September, "Criminal" is the fourth single and video from Femme Fatale.

Britney Spears To Premiere 'Criminal' Video Next Week

'Just saw the final cut of the Criminal video... It's so hot,' Britney tweets.
By Jocelyn Vena


Britney Spears' <i>Criminal</i>

Britney Spears is ready to release her cheeky clip for "Criminal" next week, Spears and director Chris Marrs Piliero confirmed Thursday (October 13) on Twitter.

"Just saw the final cut of the Criminal video... It's so hot. Can't wait for you guys to see it next week," the pop songstress tweeted.

So when exactly will the video drop? A rep for the singer had no further details about the premiere when contacted by MTV News.

Earlier this month, Piliero stayed pretty quiet about what fans should expect from the video, but he did gush about Spears' performance on Twitter. "Not a whole lot i'm allowed to say about the @britneyspears criminal vid other than that i love this video and can't wait for it to come out," he wrote. "Oh and that she looks gorgeous in it... pretty sure it's cool for me to say that..."

Spears shot the video last month in London, right before kicking off the European leg of her Femme Fatale Tour. The video features Spears and real-life beau Jason Trawick. Little is known about what will happen in the video, but when Spears was photographed carrying a prop gun on set, politicians in the U.K. accused the star of glorifying violence after the London riots. The video was shot in Hackney, which was hit hard by the August riots, and local politicians were upset by what they saw as an insensitive gesture by Spears.

"It is only a music video, but it's images like this, with pop stars glamorizing gangs, which means that some young people ... get drawn in," Hackney's Member of Parliament, Diane Abbott, told the ITV news program "London Tonight." "Britney should really know better."

However, Spears shrugged off any criticisms in a statement to MTV News. "The video is a fantasy story featuring Britney's boyfriend, Jason Trawick, which literally plays out the lyrics of a song written three years before the riots ever happened," the statement read.

What are you expecting from the "Criminal" video? Let us know in the comments!

'RHONJ' Recap: Season 3, Episode 19

One afternoon in Jersey, Teresa calls Melissa as she's choosing a sexy dress for her next stage performance. While Melissa squeaks around in her liquid leggings, Teresa talks about the family portrait she's planning. Melissa says it means a lot to Joe to be included because the Giudices have taken portraits before and not invited them. Melissa says she's with her stylist and has to hang up. The minute she clicks off, the stylist is all, "Whew! You dodged a bullet not telling Teresa that I was here."

Apparently the stylist works for both of them, and -- as we know -- Teresa doesn't like to share her toys. Melissa brushes it off and returns to choosing from the trash-tastic selection before her. And I quote, "Do you like the gold pants?" Meanwhile, over at the Giudices, Milania is running amok (as usual), and Audriana is toddling around while Teresa tells Juicy about the family portrait and her hope that taking it will bring her family back to the good old days -- days that I have officially decided never actually happened.

Kristen Stewart Hurt On 'Snow White' Set?

'It's a wrap for today. Kristen has hurt herself,' co-star on the film tweeted.
By Jocelyn Vena

Kristen Stewart was reportedly hurt on the set of "Snow White and the Huntsman," halting production until Friday. While details about her injury remain a mystery as of press time, her co-star Max Manganello, who plays one of the duke's soldiers in the film, announced it on Twitter.

The tweet has since been taken down, but according to E! News, Manganello had this to say about the injury on Tuesday: "It's a wrap for today. Kristen has hurt herself ... nothing scary. We shoot on Friday."

A rep for the movie studio had not responded to MTV News' request for comment by press time and little else is known about Stewart's condition.

Stewart has been busy shooting the film abroad. In late September, she was spotted in Pembrokeshire, Wales, filming a battle scene, and days later she was photographed drenched and wearing a gown on the back of a white horse.

The film is expected to open on June 1, 2012 and also features Charlize Theron (the Evil Queen), Chris Hemsworth (the Huntsman) and Sam Claflin (Prince Charming). The story centers on the struggle between Snow White and the Evil Queen, who, jealous of Snow White's beauty, wants to destroy her. The catch is that Snow White has been training with the Huntsman, who has also been ordered to kill her. And in true fairy-tale form, Prince Charming is enamored with Snow White.

"It's not a little girl sitting by a well with little tweety birds telling her what to do and where to go," Stewart told MTV News of her character. "[The costume] makes you feel kind of strong occasionally, sometimes, but I kind of feel tiny, my pinhead sticks out of these enormous things."

Check out everything we've got on "Snow White and the Huntsman."

During her emotional acceptance speech, Gaga said, ?My first experience with music was my father playing a vinyl of the E Street Band. I knew every time the song played that my grandpa was looking down and thanking me [for]? the gift I had given to my father by having Clarence on that record. There is no edge when it comes to Clarence?s glory."

On another note, the 25-year-old took to Twitter on Friday night to post a YouTube link to a video featuring one of her lookalikes in a Halloween themed clip.

With the video link (watch below), Gaga wrote, "OK THIS IS AMAZING MONSTER VIDEO, haus of gaga just peed in the bed laughing. This girl looks just like me! GAGAWEEN"

Michael Jackson Doctor Called Girlfriend As MJ Died

Three of Dr. Conrad Murray's former girlfriends take the stand Tuesday.
By Gil Kaufman

Prosecutors in the involuntary manslaughter trial of Michael Jackson's physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, called one of the cardiologist's girlfriends to the stand Tuesday (October 4) in an attempt to nail down what Murray was doing as his famous client was dying of cardiac arrest.

Houston, Texas, steakhouse waitress Sade Anding told the jury that six minutes into a phone call with Murray on June 25, 2009, Murray suddenly disappeared as she was telling him about her day. "I realized he was no longer on the phone," she said of the call that took place less than a half-hour before Murray placed a frantic call to Jackson's assistant asking for help. At one point, she described hearing coughing, mumbling and other voices on Murray's end, as if his phone was in his pocket. The call was one of a half-dozen that phone records show Murray made during a crucial time when prosecutors say he should have been monitoring Jackson's vital signs closely.

Other testimony on Tuesday:

» Another woman, Michelle Bella, said she got a text message from Murray that morning, and an employee of the doctor said she exchanged eight minutes' worth of calls with him during the final hours of Jackson's life.

» Murray's current girlfriend and the mother of one of his seven children, Nicole Alvarez, 29, at first denied knowing that the doctor was pulling down $150,000 a month for treating Jackson. She said she met Jackson in 2008 and that she spent time with the pop star and Murray several more times after their son was born in 2009. Alvarez also testified that by June 2009, Murray was leaving their apartment at 9 p.m. almost every night and returning in the morning and that she signed for packages in April, May and June of 2009 but didn't know they contained the powerful anesthetic propofol. She told prosecutors that she planned to travel with Murray to England for Jackson's planned string of 50 This Is It shows.

» Alvarez said she spoke to Murray as the doctor rode in the ambulance to the hospital with Jackson's body, one of four calls the two exchanged on the afternoon of the singer's death.

» ABC News reported that none of the propofol bottles recovered from Jackson's room had the pop star's fingerprints on them, a detail that may deal a blow to the emerging defense theory that Jackson dosed himself with the surgical anesthetic while Murray was out of the room and caused his own death

» Pharmacist Tim Lopez told prosecutors he sent Murray 225 vials of propofol in total, as well as 20 vials of lorazepam and 60 of midazolam in April 2009, with some sent to a Santa Monica address that was likely the apartment the doctor shared with Alvarez.

Murray has pleaded not guilty to the charge of involuntary manslaughter. He faces four years in prison and the loss of his medical license.

No hay m&#225;s Led Zeppelin

A pesar de lo dicho ayer, Peter Mensch, manager del guitarrista Jimmy Page, se retractó totalmente en eso que la banda buscaría un reemplazo al ultragenial Robert Plant para seguir rockeando y toureándola por el mundo tras su show de 2007 en el O2 Arena de Londres por el poder de la música más sexual de la historia. No habrá más Led Zeppelin, no hay planes de que lo haya.

Mensch comentó: "Led Zeppelin se acabó. Si no los vieron en el 2007, se los perdieron. Probaron reemplazantes a Robert Plant, pero nada funcionó. Se acabó. No hay planes para continuar. Francamente, ojalá todos dejaran de hablar al respecto."

Los fans no están nada contentos, especialmente los británicos, considerando los precios delirantes de las entradas del show reunión.

Anne Hathaway at ?The White Fairy Tale Love Ball?

Anne Hathaway

On Wednesday night (July 6), Anne Hathaway dazzled at 'The White Fairy Tale Love Ball' at Chateau de Wideville in Crespieres, France. Looking princess-like as she stepped out for a good cause. As for the cause, The Naked Heart Foundation has a stated mission "to provide a safe and inspiring environment in which to play for every child living in urban Russia." The praiseworthy effort actually just launched a new program based on the principle that: ?Every Child Deserves to have a Family? - which supports the implementation of new and development of existing family support centers.

Kellan Lutz: I Prefer to Live with Gay Guys

He's long been bombarded with speculation surrounding his sexuality, but Kellan Lutz says he doesn't mind the senseless chatter because he's secure with himself.

"I don't Google myself, but I've heard that people think I'm gay... Most of the girlfriends I've had have come after me. So it's really funny when girls get offended because I don't hit on them," the "Twilight" hunk told The Advocate recently.

Kellan continued, "They'll transform their insecurity into, 'Oh, that makes sense, because I heard you're into guys and have a boyfriend.' I'm like, 'Seriously? That's your tactic to get me to like you?' There will always be rumors, but I know who I am."

Despite having to defend his own sexuality, Lutz says he has no issue with his LGBT community itself, telling, "Oh, they're the best. I love them. When I meet gay fans out and about, they're so great to talk to -- and I'm big on hugging, because I'm from the Midwest," adding, "I'm proud to have those fans, and their support means a lot to me. I don't want just girls coming to my movies; I want guys to come too."

Furthering his point, the 26-year-old actor explained, "Honestly, I'd prefer to live with gay guys. They're the cleanest, and they just take care of stuff. Because I'm always away, coming home to a clean house means a lot to me. Trust me, I've lived with a lot of roommates, and straight guys are just kids who don't pick up after themselves."

Brad Pitt 'World War Z' Set Raided by SWAT Team

Brad Pitt 'World War Z' Set Raided by SWAT Team

Brad Pitt may soon be fighting zombies with his bare hands! On Monday, a SWAT team descended on the Budapest, Hungary, set of Pitt's new horror-thriller World War Z, where they confiscated a warehouse full of prop weapons. As it happens, the zombie-fighting guns -- including 85 automatic weapons and assault rifles, plus ammunition -- were a little too real for use on a film set.

"Guns like these are highly illegal to transport even if they were to be used as stage guns, which hopefully they weren't," Hadju Janos, the director of Hungary's anti-terrorism unit, explained to Us Weekly.

To follow the letter of the law, says Janos, the film set should have been equipped with non-functioning weapons -- and if they were going to use the real deal, they should have consulted the Hungarian police. But he says that Pitt, who is producing World War Z with his company Plan B Entertainment, probably is not at fault for the error.

"The movie company's employees must have made a mistake bringing the guns in without the Anti-Terrorism Unit's permission," Janos theorizes.

This isn't the first time that the World War Z set got a little too real for comfort. In August, Pitt rescued an extra from underfoot when a stampede of actors playing zombies threatened to trample her.

But despite the setbacks, director Marc Forster says that working with Pitt (as both star and producer) has been a dream. "I think he is an incredible actor and an inspiring collaborator," Foster told MTV News.

World War Z has taken Pitt, Angelina Jolie and their kids all over Europe, as Pitt (who plays a United Nations official) has been filming in Malta, London, Budapest and Glasgow, Scotland. The movie is scheduled for release next Christmas.

Mary J. Blige Dishes On Her 'Crazy' Led Zeppelin Covers

'I've listened to their music since I was a child,' says the R&B diva, who recorded 'Stairway to Heaven' and 'Whole Lotta Love.'
By James Montgomery, with reporting by Larry Carroll

You wouldn't peg Mary J Blige as the black-light-and-tapestry sort, but, as has become readily apparent in recent weeks, she absolutely loves Led Zeppelin.

In early February, reports began circulating that Blige had re-recorded Zeppelin's classic "Stairway to Heaven," working with Travis Barker, "American Idol" judge Randy Jackson and guitarist Steve Vai on the track, which is slated to appear on the international reissue of her Stronger With Each Tear album, due Monday.

But after she had recorded "Stairway," Blige continued to get the Led out, covering another Zeppelin classic — the thunderous "Whole Lotta Love" — for the album too. And when MTV News caught up with her on the Essence Black Women in Hollywood red carpet, she told us all about channeling her inner Robert Plant for the tracks, a process that came much easier than you'd probably imagine.

"I did Led Zeppelin's 'Stairway to Heaven' and 'Whole Lotta Love' — it's crazy," she said. "I am a Led Zeppelin fan. I'm not going to say I've been to their concerts, but I've listened to their music since I was a child, and it's always moved me, especially 'Stairway to Heaven,' and 'Whole Lotta Love' is just fun."

Blige also said she recorded another new song — a "club record" called "I Can't Wait" — for the re-release. And while it's only slated to hit shelves outside the U.S., she hopes her fans will get a chance to hear all the new songs pretty soon.

"I want y'all to hear it," she laughed.

Britney Spears' "Criminal" Music Video: Watch Now!

With anticipation having reached its pinnacle, Britney Spears delivered as planned by releasing her latest music video "Criminal" at midnight on Tuesday (October 18).

The 29-year-old pop star messaged her faithful followers just hours prior to the video's debut, writing, "Excited for yall to see the Criminal video! Whose gonna stay up & watch on @iTunesMusic tonight at midnight EST? Brit "

The action-packed piece features Spears' manager beau Jason Trawick while having been shot in London, during which time she garnered plenty of criticism from the English bureaucrats for including the use of a gun while filming in one of the UK city's boroughs shortly after the August riots.

To go along with the "Criminal" video premiere, Britney also posted a string of messages accompanied with cover artwork.

With the five photos found below, Miss Spears' lineup of one-liners were as follows: "I just can't deny, love the guy?," "He's a bad boy with a tainted heart?," "Unpredictable..." and "Villain of the devil's law."

Britney Spears Armed And Dangerous In 'Criminal' Pics

Britney Spears has landed in London and she's taking the city by storm.

Since arriving in the U.K., the singer has been hard at work on the set of her "Criminal" music video, according to photos that hit the Web. The pics reveal there will be a cameo from a super special guy in her life.

In one photograph, a smiling Spears holds a gun as she leaves a convenience store with her real-life boyfriend Jason Trawick behind her. Other photos show Spears inside the store tucking the gun in the waistband of her pants, and Trawick carrying groceries and pulling Brit by the arm.

In a chat with AOL, the pop star explained that it was her idea to shoot the clip in London. "I'm shooting a video [and] I've never shot on location out of the country of America for a video," she said. "So, it should be very interesting. It was partly my idea ... to see if it could to happen, and they were like, 'Yeah, it's a great idea,' so we did it."

The Femme Fatale singer also opened up about her busy career, including the European leg of her tour which kicks off this month. So, how does she stay tour-ready at all times? "Sometimes it is [a lot of work], but I genuinely love what I do and I get on a routine and a schedule to keep me motivated and inspired to have the energy I need for the show," she said. "A lot of cardio, a lot of running and just try and eat clean."

Britney added that it's all about balancing motherhood and career. "You just have to find your balance and niche in your life," she said, crediting her mom and nanny with giving her a helping hand. "It's a process you learn to figure out."

Soap Dish: A Get Well Letter To Kirsten Storms

If you are a General Hospital fan then you know the lovely Kirsten Storms, who plays Maxie Jones, is sick. It is so bad that they had to bring in a replacement Maxie until the actresses gets better. When people are sick they like get well cards, wishes etc so I decided to make this week?s Soap Dish a get well letter to one of my favorite soap stars Kirsten Storms. Dear Kirsten, Please get well soon. Port Charles is not the same with you. Although your stand in is holding her own nicely, you in my eyes are Maxie and I miss seeing you on my TV. Even though I originally knew you as Belle on Days Of Our Lives I have grown to love you as the ever so entertaining, witty and sometimes very witchy Maxie. You are perfect as this character with your wonderful talent and chemistry with pretty much everyone on the show. You are a scene stealer for sure and there is something seriously missing from GH without you! Besides how much you rock on the show, after watching you on Dirty Soap the past couple of weeks I feel like I have grown to [...]

Britney Spears may have been looking back on her impressive career during a Jo Calderone-helmed tribute at Sunday night's VMAs, but there's still so much for fans to look forward to. The singer has a lot up her sleeve after taking home the Moonman for Best Pop Video for her "Till the World Ends" clip and the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award -- and she revealed all to MTV News.

There's been some hot debate about what the singer's next Femme Fatale single is going to be, and finally her loyal fans are getting the confirmation they've been waiting for.

"I don't if I'm at liberty to tell," she teased MTV News backstage at the VMAs. "But I will anyways: It's 'Criminal.' "

The slow jam should make for some interesting visual fodder, and Spears told us she knows what the video will look like, but she's going to keep everyone waiting a little longer. "Actually the song, when I first heard it, it's really different and it's not anything I've heard like this before. So I really wanted to deliver this song. I was thinking of a really cool concept for the video just to make it interesting," she said, teasing, "You'll have to see."

She's also set to hit the road again when the Femme Fatale Tour heads to Europe. She'll be joined by Joe Jonas for select dates.

The 28th annual MTV Video Music Awards have wrapped, but the real action is just getting started! Stick with MTV News for winners, fashion pics, video and behind-the-scenes stories about everything that went down. Visit VMA.MTV.com for the latest.

No hay m&#225;s Led Zeppelin

A pesar de lo dicho ayer, Peter Mensch, manager del guitarrista Jimmy Page, se retractó totalmente en eso que la banda buscaría un reemplazo al ultragenial Robert Plant para seguir rockeando y toureándola por el mundo tras su show de 2007 en el O2 Arena de Londres por el poder de la música más sexual de la historia. No habrá más Led Zeppelin, no hay planes de que lo haya.

Mensch comentó: "Led Zeppelin se acabó. Si no los vieron en el 2007, se los perdieron. Probaron reemplazantes a Robert Plant, pero nada funcionó. Se acabó. No hay planes para continuar. Francamente, ojalá todos dejaran de hablar al respecto."

Los fans no están nada contentos, especialmente los británicos, considerando los precios delirantes de las entradas del show reunión.

¿Y a ti? ¿Qué te parece todo esto?

Coldplay, Led Zeppelin Album Covers Featured On New British Stamps

Album art from Pink Floyd, Blur and David Bowie also included.
By James Montgomery


Coldplay's new British stamps

On Thursday (January 7), the U.K.'s Royal Mail unveiled a series of 10 new stamps, honoring the most iconic album covers of the past 40 years.

The albums featured in the new series are the Rolling Stones' Let It Bleed, Led Zeppelin's IV, David Bowie's The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars, Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells, The Clash's London Calling, New Order's Power, Corruption and Lies, Primal Scream's Screamadelica, Pink Floyd's The Division Bell, Blur's Parklife and — the most recent album on to make the cut — Coldplay's A Rush of Blood to the Head.

Meant to honor "the most potent graphic images of modern times, many of which have provided a visual soundtrack to people's lives," the series is the end result of a lengthy research process by the Royal Mail, who looked through thousands of album covers by British artists before deciding on the final list. And, during a Wednesday night BBC Radio broadcast, it was revealed that the queen herself actually approved each design.

Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page — who helped design the cover for IV — was on hand to celebrate the release of the stamps and recalled the mysterious nature of the album's iconic imagery.

"Almost 40 years after the album came out, nobody knows the old man who featured on the cover, nor the artist who painted him," he said. "That sort of sums up what we wanted to achieve with the album cover, which has remained both anonymous and enigmatic at the same time."

Of course, any great honor is befitting of an equally great contest, so, on the same day the stamps were made available to the general public, Coldplay decided to give one of their Rush of Blood stamps away. In a message on their official site, the band held a contest to send one lucky fan "a letter using a Coldplay stamp, postmarked with today's issue date."

"We visited our local post office earlier today and bought some of the Coldplay stamps," the message read. "Very nice they are too."
