Katy Perry is facing backlash after she appeared to shade Britney Spears in not one, but two red carpet interviews at Sunday night’s GRAMMYs. Katy was asked by a couple of hosts about her new hair and her new music, and she stuck to her talking points. The problem was her go-to line sounded an awful lot like a dig at Britney’s infamous 2007 haircut.

Ashley Tisdale is keeping nostalgia alive on her YouTube channel. Following on her Paramore cover and a duet with her “High School Musical” bestie Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley is at it again with an acoustic cover of Britney Spears’ 2003 song “Toxic.”
Their version is a little more low key than the original. It might not get people dancing, but it gives Ashley’s husband, Chris French, a chance to show off his guitar skills while Ashley delivers pre-breakdown Britney in style.
Hear Ashley’s latest YouTube cover below.

Fifth Harmony have been actively looking for a fifth member to replace Camila Cabello who was either kicked out or left willingly—depending on which statement you believe. Putting out a social media challenge called #BeThe5thChallenge, the remaining four members posted edited photos from fans who cropped in pictures of other celebrities into their first promo photo as a foursome.
One of those celebs included Britney Spears’ little sister Jamie Lynn Spears and the more successful sister is here for the inclusion. The singer tweeted the edited photo of her sister joking that she was now the fifth member of the pop group.
Britney Spears appeared on Tuesday’s episode of UK-based talkshow “Loose Women.” The singer sat down for a few rapid-fire questions, which included “Snog, Marry, Avoid.” She was asked to pick among Justin Bieber, Simon Cowell and Madonna and Britney quickly second guessed herself. “Justin Bieber marry,” she says. Britney then corrected her response to “snog.” When asked who she would actually marry if it wasn’t Justin, Britney confidently says “none.”

The singer recently stopped by the Kiss FM UK studios where she was asked about how she felt watching Ariana channel her best Britney. “That’s funny,” Britney says after hearing Ariana’s cover of “…Baby One More Time.” Britney did compliment Ariana’s real voice, but quickly let it be known that Ariana was good but not great.
“I’ve heard better,” Britney remarks.

Britney Spears is really trying to tap into the younger market to get her album sales up. The singer recently praised Selena Gomez and her album “Revival” for inspiring her. Now the pop icon is showing love to Selena’s bestie Taylor Swift.
While making an appearance on “The Jonathan Ross Show,” Britney participated in the helium challenge where she had to sing a song after taking a breath of helium. Britney chose Taylor’s “Shake It Off.”
Singing her music may be Britney’s way of apologizing after saying she had never met Taylor, despite the fact that they met at an awards show and even snapped a picture together.
Watch the clip of Britney singing “Shake It Off” below.
