Dressed down in black skinny jeans and a peplum top, a radiant Britney Spears gave a small crowd a sneak peek at her "personal" upcoming album, Britney Jean.
With her long hair down in waves, the singer, 31, even sang along to a few tracks while joking and giggling with the album's executive producer will.i.am and moderator Andy Cohen, who kicked off the evening by asking her what the inspiration was for this particular album.
"It's my most personal," she said. "With the breakup [from ex-fiancé Jason Trawick] this year … what you do to get through it … being with your family and getting through it." As for what gives the pop star fuel in the studio? "I like sushi and skittles," Spears said, laughing.

Monday's two-hour The Voice, featuring the Top 8 live performances, was bookended by a pair of diva-strong performances that showcased both glamour and range.
Judith Hill, a former duet partner of the late Michael Jackson, opened the show with her own disco-inspired version of the electronic pop hit of Will.i.am and Justin Bieber, "#thatPOWER." Wearing a sci-fi Mohawk ponytail and a silver-feathered jacket that looked both rocker and angelic, the always-strong Hill owned the stage with her original vision of the tune.
"I think it was great to see you flip that song," said Shakira.

Looks like things could be getting pretty weird on American Idol.
Shortly after reporting that Adam Lambert might be replacing Jennifer Lopez as a judge on the show, E! News announced Monday that Idol producers might also be considering Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, Fergie, Katy Perry, and will.i.am for the high-profile gig.
"There are going to be lots of names coming up now," Idol producer Nigel Lythgoe told CNN. "Everything's still up in the air, I have to say. Nothing is confirmed. Hopefully, I'm going to push for Charlie Sheen and Jerry Lewis as judges on American Idol. I'm not sure how far I'll get with that, but I think that would be fun."

Even the royals like to rock out.
At Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee pop concert Monday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge sat with Prince Harry and Princess Beatrice to take in the show.
The royals were seated in a box high above the crowd of 20,000 invited guests to enjoy music from the 60 years of the Queen's reign. Many of the attendees waved Union Jack flags – Kate included!
The Duchess – in an Alexander McQueen jacket and a dress from Whistles – sat between Prince William and Beatrice. The young royals were just behind Prince Charles and his wife Camilla as they all listened to tunes from the likes of Paul McCartney, Tom Jones and Stevie Wonder.

Fergie was certainly animated at the launch party for Ubisoft's Black Eyed Peas Experience dance-themed video game at L.A.'s Supperclub. The singer was chatting with her bandmates and fellow revelers, like Wilmer Valderrama, at her VIP table at the back of the dance floor. But Fergie and the Peas also treated the crowd to an impromptu (and intimate) performance. According to an onlooker, she stood behind the deejay booth and rocked out to "Boom Boom Pow" while the guys worked the room. – Jessica Wedemeyer

For millions of Black Eyed Peas fans, songs such as "I Got A Feeling" and "Boom Boom Pow" make them want to dance.
For college student Elijah Williams, the songs make him want to … study.
"I think I should go do homework or something," says the Wilmington University freshman, one of four friends whose entire college education is being bankrolled by the band's frontman, will.i.am, through his i.am scholarship fund. (The scholarship also covers room, board, and books.)
The Grammy winner, 34, who grew up in a Los Angeles housing project and didn't attend college himself, came up with the idea for the scholarship fund two years ago after earning a hefty paycheck to deejay a party.
