Durst, 32, revealed the news himself, on his official website. He wrote: "I really like her and that's about all I should say." Choosing, however, to continue he added, "She's a sweet, amazing girl and I'm happy to know her right now. You are my family and you know you can trust me and my judgment!" The Limp Bizkit singer had been spotted spending nights in Spear's home, and the pair have been enjoying boozy nights at all the right clubs. Fred Durst has also been linked to Britney's arch-rival Christina Aguilera a few years ago (who in turn, was also linked to Justin Timberlake just after he split from Britney). Meanwhile, the video for the N'Syncer's latest effort see's the white soul boy breaking into the house of an estranged blonde girlfriend who is a carbon copy of Britney. In the song, Timberlake croons about infidelity and loss, and the lyrics, coupled with the Britney look-alike, have been interpreted as everything from gut-wrenching to just plain mean.

VS Britney Spears BRITNEY SPEARS' UPS AND DOWNS FOR 2002 2002 has been a tumultuous year for Britney Spears. The news that she has been fired by drinks giant Pepsi was the final indignity which began with disappointing sales of her third album and poor reviews of her big-screen debut in 'Crossroads.' Then a world tour turned into a public relations disaster. In Mexico the press turned on her after she "flipped them the finger", fans chanted at her and she was booed. It's not the first time the twenty-one-old singer has enraged both press and public recently. Her angelic image was initially tarnished when she was booed in London, England and Sydney, Australia. While promoting her film 'Crossroads' in Australia in April, fans where outraged by how little time she spent with them. Even that was a case of 'Oops (I Did It Again).' The pop princess had been booed just weeks earlier at the London premiere of 'Crossroads'. The 20-year-old star enraged thousands of young fans who had waited for hours in the cold, by failing to go on a walkabout or sign autographs before the start of the movie. So, could it be that the once pristine Britney is losing her once Midas touch with her fans? Some in the British press have suggested that the sex kitten image she has adopted in the videos for 'I'm A Slave 4 U' and 'Overprotected' may be alienating her young fans, and hurting her album sales. Whether or not her young followers are turned off by her erotic new look, she can certainly ill afford to upset her loyal fans base again. Then there were problems with her Manhattan restaurant Nyla, which resulted in her breaking off her involvement at the beginning of December after just five months. Finally, a well-publicized break-up with long-tem boyfriend Justin Timberlake, her parents' divorce, and a self-imposed six-month break from the business fueled rumours that Spears' once rock-solid career was beginning to crumble.

Music clip 'Boys' BRITNEY 21 TODAY Pop icon BRITNEY SPEARS celebrates her 21st birthday today (December 2, 2002), three years after she broke onto the music scene with her smash hit 'Baby One More Time'. Born in rural Louisiana, teen popster Britney Spears was groomed for stardom from the start. She spent her early childhood performing in talent shows and dance reviews before, at age eight, she was discovered by a TV producer who hooked her up with a New York agent. Britney spent her summers in New York studying at the Off-Broadway Dance Center and the Professional Performing Arts School and began picking up television commercials. At 10 she landed a role in the off-Broadway production 'Ruthless' and a year later was cast in the Disney Channel's popular Mickey Mouse Club Show. After two years of taping the Disney show in Orlando, Britney returned to Louisiana and set her sites on a career in pop music. She was quickly recruited by Jive Records, home of the Backstreet Boys, and teamed up with Eric Foster (Whitney Houston, Hi-Five) and Max Martin (Robyn, Backstreet Boys), who produced her debut album. 'Baby One More Time' hit record store shelves in early 1999 and became one of the best selling albums of the year, helping to earn Spears a Grammy nomination for "Best New Artist." (The award went to teen queen rival Christina Aguilera.) Spears' sophomore effort, Oops!...I Did It Again, came out in May 2000. The album - which sold 1.3 million copies during its first week of release, beating Mariah Carey's record for the highest first-week sales by a female solo artist - earned Spears nominations in the Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance categories at the 43rd Annual Grammy Awards the following year. Britney mania reached an all-time high as fans eagerly anticipated her third album, and the paparazzi tried to document every move she made with boyfriend Justin Timberlake. In 2001, the simply-titled 'Britney' marked a departure for the pop princess. Spears moved away from bubble-gum pop and more toward techno (thanks to the production team of the Neptunes) and more mature ballads. The singles, 'I'm a Slave 4 U,' and 'I'm Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman,' did their best to position Spears away from the pre-teen audience. 2002 has been a tumultuous year for Spears. The sales of her third album were considered disappointing, reviews of her big-screen debut in 'Crossroads' were less than stellar, and there were problems with her Manhattan restaurant Nyla, which resulted in her breaking off her involvement last week after just five months. Finally, a well-publicized break-up with Justin Timberlake, her parents' divorce, and a self-imposed six-month break from the business fueled rumours that Spears' once rock-solid career was beginning to crumble. Spears denied the rumours and told the story in her own words for People magazine. While there are no immediate plans to record another album, Spears, after a making a cameo in 'Austin Powers: Goldmember,' may concentrate more on acting. In fact, she signed a deal with NASCAR to make a film about car racing in the near future.

And I actually got a chance to talk at the VMA's and clear things up; it's all a good energy kind of thing and the purpose for even having all the interlude for all this stuff was that it kind of set up myself to have an answer to not anyone in particular but just all the hype and rumours and gossip in a way." 10.

Sot Christina Aguilera - On why the album took so long to record - "A lot of personal things came up along the way, that prohibited me from finishing it sooner than I wanted to, just personal things kind of that everyone goes through, but the deadlines and being in this business, being in the spotlight it's harder sometimes going through them, being in the public eye. So I had to just take a break for a minute here and there, and breathe a bit. But in the end, I think you know, a lot of hard times that I had gone through even while making the record, gave me a place to come from, more with emotion, and get in out on the record. So it worked out. Everything happens for a reason." 12. Clip Video - 'Dirrty', Christina Aguilera 13. Sot - Christina Aguilera - (having trouble talking) - "I'm sorry, I'm having a rough time, not feeling very well. 'Stripped' is a very personal record to me." 14. Clip Video - 'Dirrty', Christina Aguilera CHRISTINA AGUILERA TALKS "DIRRTY" When Christina Aguilera burst onto the pop scene in 1999, she was following in the wake of the first teen pop queen Britney Spears. But she proved herself when she had two number one hits in a row and beat sure-thing Britney to the Grammy award for Best New Artist. But now Christina seems to have taken a leaf out of Britney's book again with her latest offering, the sexually charged new single 'Dirrty'. Similarly to Britney's 'Slave 4 U' video, 'Dirrty' shows Christina writhing around with other semi naked bodies scantily clad in a bra top and leather trousers. But this time Christina has gone one better by making her trousers crotchless revealing her tiny red knickers underneath. When asked what the video is about she said "Turning 21, doing what any other 21 year old would do is go out and party and have fun." Her changed look also includes black streaks and braids in her blond hair, and piercings in her nose and underneath her lip, among other places. 'Dirty' is the first single from her latest album 'Stripped' which was released on 28th October. Instead of cheerful, pleasing pop tunes, the new disc has brooding ballads, introspective songs and hip-hop collaborations with Redman and Lil' Kim and Aguilera has co-wrote most of the songs. The change of image and sound wasn't something that her record company was that willing to accommodate and took some convincing on her part. "I had to fight pretty hard, I mean definitely the label could have been happy with another pop, really super driven, that way record, and you know it's playing the safe route and where to go; but I really don't like playing it safe, I am an individual and I don't like to go that route." Aguilera had been hoping for even bigger numbers from 'Stripped', considering it's part of her move to a more adult sound and it's her first proper studio album since her 1999 self-titled debut, which opened at number one. Her album didn't match up to the sales of Britney Spears whose 'Britney' sold 750,000 in its first week last year and it was also beaten to the number one slot in the album charts by Eminem's movie soundtrack to '8 Mile'. Aside from their chart battle the relationship between Eminem and Christina seems to have been patched up after she showed up last week for the premiere of his latest film '8 Mile. When asked about the situation she said, "He had any real hatred towards me, he just thought that obviously I had dissed him in an interview or something, which I haven't done. And you know he reacted, and how does he react but make a record about it you know, put it in his rap. And I actually got a chance to talk at the VMA's and clear things up."

Clip - 'Die Another Day', Madonna MADONNA CALLS BRITNEY HOMOGENISED Madonna has slammed manufactured pop acts and labelled Pink, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera "homogenised". The pop star accused record chiefs of working out how wannabes can be marketed rather than finding true talents. In an interview with the May edition of music magazine Q Madonna said she could not understand the direction the music world was taking. In the UK acts spawned by talent shows Pop Idol and the two Popstars series have enjoyed a number of huge successes. And in the US, where Madonna is currently based although she still has a home in the UK, American Idol 2 is again enjoying a large audience. Madonna said: "I arrived at a different time - before the time of Svengalis holding talent searches; finding a girl that looks right and can carry a tune and then figuring a way to market her." Referring to Pink, Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears, she said: "I'm not saying those girls can't grow into something, but I really don't know where we're going with the world. "Everything's so homogenised." Madonna, 44, was also critical of young hopefuls' craving for celebrity for its own sake, rather than finding acclaim for their abilities. "It's the allure of this beautiful life. Drive this car, you're gonna be popular," she told Q, which goes on sale on April 1. "It's a very powerful illusion and people are caught up in it, including myself - or I was." The singer rose to fame thanks to her provocative image, but despite years of wearing ludicrous outfits she takes a firm line on what her own children should wear. Asked if she felt able to stop her daughter Lourdes from dressing how she wants, Madonna said: "I can and I do."

CARLOS SANTANA, whose career took off when his band headlined at Woodstock in 1969, was showered with 10 Grammy nominations on Tuesday for his multiplatinum album, "Supernatural," including an album of the year nomination. Santana received more nominations than any other group or artist, including TLC was second with six nominations for the album 'FanMail'. 'I was really shocked,' TLC member Chilli said.

The teenage singing sensation spent three years of her childhood in Japan, and told the assembled press how glad she was to be back in her "second home". And just to make her feel really welcome, the cult Japanese character 'Hello Kitty' presented Christina with a bouquet of flowers. The nineteen year old also spoke about her excitement over her nominations for this year's Grammy Awards, where she'll be up against Madonna in the 'Best Female Pop Vocalist' category. The nominations have left fans wondering how Christina will fare against the Queen of Pop when the Grammy results are announced on February 21st. Not to mention whether she will be able to emulate her success last year, when she beat off competition from arch-rival Britney Spears to win the 'Best New Artist' Grammy. Christina's current tour has seen her travelling through Latin America, and the singer is certainly playing on her Ecuadorian roots to court the huge Latin market. Late last year she released a Spanish-language album, 'Mi Reflejo', which features six original songs as well as Spanish versions of her worldwide smash hits 'Genie In A Bottle', 'What A Girl Wants' and 'Come On Over Baby' ('Genio Atrapado', 'Una Mujer' and 'Ven Conmigo' respectively. 'Mi Reflejo' has been a huge hit in the Spanish-speaking world, and has earned Christina a further Grammy nomination for best Latin Pop Album. The singer gave the Tokyo crowd a sample of her Spanish songs. The Spanish language single 'Pero Me Acuerdo De Ti' ('Then I Remember You') is due to be released in Japan in mid-February. Christina's latest English offering is 'Nobody Wants To Be Lonely', her duet with fellow Latin sensation RICKY MARTIN. It will be released at the end of February. SHOTLIST: 1.

CARLOS SANTANA, PHIL COLLINS, THE BEATLES and GARTH BROOKS were the big winners at last night's American Music Awards in Los Angeles in a ceremony dominated by veteran acts. However, a few newcomers like SHANIA TWAIN and BRITNEY SPEARS managed to make appearances among the prizewinners at the annual backslapping event. Country giant Brooks picked up two awards for best country male and country album with DOUBLE LIVE. Apart from making his usual humble 'I am not worthy' speech, Garth raised the possibility that he may retire at the end of the year. "I'm not sure that people don't need a breather from Garth," says Garth. Brooks was also named artist of the Nineties. Santana continued his remarkable career revival receiving a standing ovation after accepting the favourite pop-rock album award for "Supernatural." He called up his co-producer CLIVE DAVIS to the stage. Music legend Davis has been in a power struggle with the people who own Arista Records Former GENESIS frontman Collins won in the best adult contemporary category. Veteran musicians like Brooks and Santana held their own against a wave of young up-and-comers, including the Backstreet Boys and the Dixie Chicks. Twain won for pop-rock female artist and country female artist. LAURYN HILL was honoured as favourite soul-rhythm and blues female artist while "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill" won for soul-R&B album. DMX won for favorite rap-hip hop artist. Tyrese took the honors for new soul-rhythm and blues artist. Nominees for the 27th annual awards were chosen by music industry representatives. The winners were decided in voting by about 20,000 music fans nationwide. The show also featured results of an Internet poll that named Elvis Presley favorite artist of the 1950s, the Beatles of the 1960s, Stevie Wonder of the 1970s and Michael Jackson of the 1980s. MARIAH CAREY received an Award of Achievement for her "rare and distinguished accomplishments." Michael Jackson and Prince are the only previous winners of that honour. An Award of Merit went to GLORIA ESTEFAN, who was honored with a musical tribute featuring 'N Sync. WILL SMITH was named best male artist while Spears picked up best new artist award. Among the celebrity guests attending were Spice Girl MEL C, ENRIQUE IGLESIAS, CHRISTINA AGUILARA, SAVAGE GARDEN, EMINEM and DR DRE.

"Her bra-topped collection of Madonna rejects are pure fashion overkill," bitched the former dress designer in his 41st "worst-of" countdown of celebrity fashion victims. Spears topped Blackwell's list this year. Also making the dishonour roll for Y2K: Britney's rival, Christina Aguilera. "Is she a boring and body-baring bungle--or just auditioning for Sheena, Queen of the Jungle?" For singer-turned-actress Bjfrk, Mr. Blackwell thought she must have been dressing, not dancing, in the dark. Never one to be left off a top 10 list, Madonna earned Mr. Blackwell's wrath for her chameleonic ways. "From Ghetto Glam to Rhinestone Cowgirl to Mrs. Guy Ritchie. Any way you label it, she's still just kitschy, kitschy, kitschy!" Of Mariah Carey ("her X-rated Baby Doll disasters are laughably low-rent"), Mr. Blackwell could only wonder if her designer was Larry Flynt? Blackwell also thinks advice queen Dr. Laura Schlesinger could use some advice herself. "When it comes down to fashion horror, no one does it better than Dr. Laura. A turtlenecked Terror!" Other notables Blackwell bagged on for their sartorial crimes: Angelina Jolie ("Fashion interrupted. Hit by a Gen-X gothic hex!"), Elizabeth Hurley ("Poor Liz: Her barely there fashion bombs have hit a sour note--a word of advice, buy a coat!"), Courtney Love ("When push comes to shove, no one's fashion is tackier and wackier then punky, funky love!") and Florida's math-challenged Secretary of State Katherine Harris ("The pretty, brassy lassie from Tallahassee needs cosmetic direction--her paint-by-numbers make-up screams out for discretion! A recount please!"). Lest you think Mr. Blackwell mightn't have anything nice to say, he points to the 10 best-dressed women of the year. The "fabulous fashion independents" are Juliette Binoche, Halle Berry, Charlize Theron, Faith Hill, Liz Smith, Gwyneth Paltrow, Heather Locklear, Ashley Judd, Winona Ryder and Queen Rania of Jordan.

SOT Peter Gilchrist; "The difficulty is when you explode into fame and wealth and don't have background any more. The background is now managers and agents and other stars and certainly for a young woman a young girl of 14 which is probably very attractive as well she is now going to be sought after by people on whom she is going to rely when she should really have relied on her father or older brothers or whatever and and it is going to put a lot of pressure on them a lot of psycho sexual pressure and everything else on them . And there isn't that sounding board off which to bounce those middle years 13 to 16-18 years of your life. 9.

I think that I am just really lucky that my personality is really suited to this industry.

So there is not a lot of pressure that goes with...I don't think I really was that famous. " 13: B-roll Christina Ricci at 'Moulin Rouge' Premiere 14. SOT Peter Gilchrist, Educational Psychologist: "If you can imagine being 15 and suddenly extremely famous overnight ...signing contracts for million pounds or dollars, you can have anything you want, by definition you are moving away from home because your work is going to be in America or all over the world.You're still who you, where it doesn't matter where you find your rainbow - the one great truth, trite that it may be, is that at the end of the rainbow there may be a crock of gold but you are still going to be there and you are still the person you were, you are still only 14 or 15 and you now don't have your school pals around you in the same way ,, you haven't got that degree of stability, you haven't got your siblings, you haven't got your parents, and so now you have got to look for other people to fill that role and they are quite often going to be inappropriate peers. " 15. Clip TV Trailer (Drew Barrymore ) - ET (Re-release 2001 version) 16. B-roll Drew Barrymore at 'Charlie's Angel' Premiere, London 17. SOT Peter Gilchrist, Educational Psychologist: "Bearing in mind the sorts of pressures that they are actually under, they are under a lot more pressure than you or I at a dinner party because they are having to ape adulthood and they are not. So I think there is that kind of help me cope use of drugs and alcohol, but there is also the pressure of a peer group wanting them to abuse drugs too which is a very different kettle of fish. I mean plenty of cases of youngsters that have gone right off the rails and their careers... Jennifer Capriati had a terrible time with drugs and to her great credit she has fought her way back and is now in the top 3 or 4 in the world which is an amazing achievement , but I wonder how many people that have hit early stardom ever have the courage the strength and the support to get back in the rails again, I should think it is only one in ten. " 18. B-roll young looking Charlotte Church - APTN File 19. B-roll Charlotte Church shopping for clothes 20. Sot Charlotte Church - "I'm changing like every teenager does and the American public are growing with me and I am really grateful for that. In the UK it's a bit different. If I come out in something that looks more my age, I look like a 15, 16 year old, then people are like 'what happened to the 12 year old school girl we used to know?'. The 12 year old school girl is 3 years ago, she's moved on, get used to it, people. They can't really except that." - File - 29/10/01 21. Sot Peter Gilchrist - on Charlotte Church : "The world is not terribly fair in letting people change, I mean Charlotte Church has had this problem hasn't she, having been very much the Miss Prim and Miss Proper, she is being seen as a leather-panted hot panted girl, a hot bit of stuff. And what she is saying is go on, give me a chance, I am growing up. I want to have a more sexy image now thank you very much, and why shouldn't she. But she is coming to it awfully soon . But probably not if you looked at her peer group in the ordinary school system you would find a lot of them going out in the evening dressed rather the same way. It is just that people have trouble with people coming to terms with this rather innocent image suddenly becoming a sex object. becoming a sex object." 22.

The album is just a reflection of what I am going through right now in my life and what I have been experiencing, and it is very therapeutic to go into the studio and just get that out like that. I am just in a transitional stage in my life where I am just figuring out what I want and who I am and so that is what the album is about." 25. Britney Spears on Bondi Beach, Australia - APTN file 17th September, 2001 26. Sot Peter Gilchrist : "I think she has had to keep the sexual issue at bay by making an almost political stand on it and saying I am sorry but women really are entitled to keep themselves until they get married, and make a major public issue out of it . And she became a major media target for a long time because of this and started a whole groundswell of attitude among other young women. I think it has been much more difficult for her. That's the extent she had to go to to say 'I'm not ready to have sex', I am only 14, leave me alone, and don't think of me being inadequate because I don't want to, philosophically I made a stand and that is a hell of a step for a teenager to take. It suggests that she is quite well defended really. " 27. Clip Video - 'Slave 4 U', Britney Spears 28. Sot Peter Gilchrist - How sexy videos impact on fans?: "It is a very mixed message really, in fact it looks like a lie, that is the trouble. It is hard to believe Britney Spears when she performs like that, and looks like that and dresses like that, the body language says 'I am a very sexual woman', and that is one of the big problems in it . Youngstershave that problem with body language. I often see girls of 14, 15, 16 who come in and say, 'Why is it when I go to a party and all the men want to do is get me into the back of a car.' And you look at the way they are dressed, and their make up and you say 'what signals are you giving, you are saying I am available, I am sexually aware and I want it'. And that is the trouble with the message that Britney Spears was giving, she looks and looked quite other from her political statement." 29. Clip Video - Slave 4 U, Britney Spears I'M NOT THAT INNOCENT NOW As Britney Spears makes the transition from flirtatious virgin to full time temptress, her fans, the media and celebrity watchers will carefully analyse her every move to detect whether the growing pains of stardom will put a curse on the pop princess. The tragic lives of many a child star litter the road to fame, most notably Judy Garland. Beloved by millions she was hooked on drugs, exploited and eventually driven to an early grave by unscrupulous producers, managers, agents and greedy hangers-on. Fifty years on in an age where a ravenous 24/7 media watches a young celebrity's every move, top celebrity psychologist Peter Gilchrist says the pressures on young celebrities is enormous. Many stressed out teenage performers, as well as sports men and women and the children of major stars, have sought help his at his exclusive practice outside London. Fame and wealth can be a lonely business taking the young and vulnerable along way from home and security, he warns. "You are still only 14 or 15 and you now don't have your school pals around you in the same way, you haven't got that degree of stability, you haven't got your siblings, you haven't got your parents, and so now you have got to look for other people to fill that role and they are quite often going to be inappropriate peers. " Britney, who shot to fame at only 16, was marketed as Lolita who never went all the way. While obviously a plus to the mums and dads of America, it was not merely a calculated gesture to increase sales, believes Dr Gilchrist. He believes it helped raise the issue of vriginity for teenagers who might feel under pressure to rush into a sex life. But Britney's latest image move unveiled in the erotically charged 'Slave 4 U,' has transformed her into full time vamp sending confusing messages to her young fans. Drew Barrymore was a classic example of a child star sucked into Hollywood's debauched underworld of partying, sex and drugs. The baby-doll blonde who won hearts as the sweet six-year-old in Steven Spielberg's E.T was in drugs rehab at the age of 14. By 19, she had a failed marriage behind her.In her autobiography, 'Little Girl Lost,' she admitted: "I had my first drink at age nine, began smoking marijuana at 10 and at 12 took up cocaine." The perils of drug abuse are ever present days Dr Gilchrist: "I think there is that kind of help me cope use of drugs and alcohol, but there is also the pressure of a peer group wanting them to abuse drugs." Luckily, Drew pulled herself out of the mire of drug addiction and stormed back on the big screen, a reformed character and serious actress. Christina Ricci was another child star who was forced to grow up in front of millions of cinema goers. She told APTN: "I don't know, when you are a kid you don't really think about coping. I think that I am just really lucky that my personality is really suited to this industry. I am the kind of person that, I don't take anything really that seriously, so I never felt any pressure or anything because this is something that I did because I wanted to, not because I had to." When singer Charlotte Church sprung into the spotlight with her angelic voice beloved by presidents, popes and legions of fans she was still young to wear gingham pinafores and girly curls. But now the15-year-old from Wales is a maturing and confident songbird. "If I come out in something that looks more my age, I look like a 15, 16 year old, then people are like 'what happened to the 12 year old school girl we used to know?'. The 12 year old school girl is three years ago, she's moved on, get used to it, people."

ENTERTAINMENT DAILY: ENT3- RICKY MARTIN PT 1

Their new version of 'Nobody Wants To Be Lonely' realises a long-held desire of the two artists to work together. But following this year's Billboard Music Awards - where Martin performed his latest hit, 'She Bangs,' and Christina won Female Artist of the Year - the pair finally seized the opportunity to sing together. Although Martin has been a superstar in the Spanish-speaking world for some time and had had varying success in Europe with some of his English language songs, it was really the release of "Livin' La Vida Loca" which put the former member of boy band Menudo on the international stage. Since then the Puerto Rican hip-swiveller has produced a stream of bona fide hits and he has become the object of desire of women all over the world. As a result, he has scooped numerous awards and his latest album "Sound Loaded" has sold more than 5.4m copies. It seems like a marketing dream come true for both Christina Aguilera and Ricky Martin to duet together. The pair are both seen as being two of the hottest young stars of the Latin music scene and both have had phenomenal success with their respective English and Spanish language albums. Although Christina Aguilera's musical career may have seemed to be overshadowed by that of her doppelganger Britney Spears when she was first launched, Aguilera branched out from the all-singing all-dancing young blonde schoolgirl image to produce a Latin version of her debut album, which has given Aguilera her own unique identity in the music industry. In fact her Latin album, "Mi Reflejo" has dominated the US' Latin charts for many weeks now and shows no signs of abating. The single, "Nobody Wants To Be Lonely" is a newly recorded duet version of the track off Martin's new album, "Sound Loaded", and is not available in any other format than the single, which will most likely ensure its success. Although the song is not released until the end of February, APTN caught up with Martin as he was warming up for his performance spot at the NRJ Awards in the South of France to bring you one of the first insights into what will no doubt be a phenomenal chart-topping combination.

Interscope 19. Music clip 'Lady Marmalade' LIFE HOTS UP FOR CHRISTINA AGUILERA ======================================== Latin teen star CHRISTINA AGUILERA is having a bumper year. Not only has she had a hit with her duet 'Nobody Wants to be Lonely' with Ricky Martin, she's got another single soaring up the US charts. The reworked 'Lady Marmalade' is another collaboration, this time with some of pop's finest females. And to top it all, she's just been named World's Best Selling Latin Female Artist at the World Music Awards in Monaco. The singer arrived at last week's awards ceremony with her boyfriend, and once inside performed with Ricky Martin for the celebrity heavy audience. The song has won her some notable fans - singer Anastacia among them - as well as lifelong support from her singing partner. Ricky Martin is quick to enthuse about her talent, saying he expects her to be talked about for many years to come. It's a view backed by many - the world music awards are based on sales, with trophies going to top selling recording artists from around the world by genre and by nationality. Christina was thrilled to receive hers, remembering how producers she worked with before she released a note would talk about the Monaco based prize as the award of awards. The event also gave the singer a chance to meet Prince Albert of Monaco. While the star admits she has mixed with royalty before, she claims Prince Albert is 'the coolest'. Aguilera's latest single sees her teaming up with Missy Elliot, Pink, and Lil' Kim, for a raunchy version of Patti Labelle's 'Lady Marmalade'. The song is part of the soundtrack for the Nicole Kidman movie 'Moulin Rouge' and features the singers imitating her 19th century courtesan character by wearing lingerie and show jewellery. It's all a long way from her early days as a 12 year old on the Mickey Mouse Club alongside fellow future stars Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake of 'NSYNC. At 14 she moved to Japan to record 'All I Wanna Do', a hit duet with local pop star Keizo Nakanishi. 1998 saw her back in America recording 'Reflection' for the soundtrack of Disney's full length animation Mulan. Shortly afterwards she was snapped up by RCA, and her debut album 'Christina Aguilera' hit the shops. That first long player was recorded with a host of leading songwriters and producers, and entered the US album chart at number one, following her assault on the US singles chart with 'Genie In A Bottle', which after 5 weeks at the top became the biggest selling US single of the year. She followed that success with another number one single in January 2000, 'What A Girl Wants', and another in October with 'Come On Over Baby (All I Want Is You)'. And her future career shows no signs of letting up - the star is heading back into a Los Angeles studio to record her next album. While there has been a Christina Aguilera Latin album 'Mi Reflejo' and a Christina Aguilera christmas album 'My Kind Of Christmas' the singer considers her new project to be the first real follow up to her debut collection Aguilera is eager to get going on her new material, saying the album will take her to a more personal place. And the rest of the world's invited.

Video clip 'Get The Party Started' by Pink STORYLINE: PINK CORRECTS MISSUNDERZTANDINGS R&B star PINK has been giving a press conference in London to answer questions about her second album 'MISSUNDAZTOOD'. The event gave her the chance to clear up a few long standing questions, and new rumours. For instance, the singer is adamant there is no feud between herself and pop princess Britney Spears. Reports have surfaced that Britney recently changed hotel rooms because Pink was next door partying hard. And lyrics in Pink's next single 'Don't Let Me Get Me' features the line: 'Tired to being compared to damn Britney Spears/She's so damn pretty/That's just not me'. But Pink says there are no hard feelings. "I can be loud and so I can understand if it was true. If you are not the party type then you probably wouldn't want to stand next to me. We get along, I don't think she hates me, if she does she is very good at faking it." Although the singer insists she has never been very good at getting along with other stars, the collaboration with Lil Kim, Christina Aguilera, Mya and Missy Elliot for the smash hit 'Lady Marmalade' seems to have been an exception. And demand for their version is still high - "We are doing that again for the Grammies so we will never be through with that. It was fun, it wasn't as dramatic as everyone thought it was going to be, collaborations are fun." Another persistent misunderstanding is the relationship between her nickname and her hair colour. Pink (born Alicia Moore) set things straight once and for all - "Well Pink came from when I was 8 I went to the YMCA for camp and this kid that I had a crush on pulled my pants down in front of everybody, in an auditorium and I had no underwear on and I blushed and turned pink and it basically followed me througout my life. It was pretty mean when they called me Pink the first time, they were all making fun of me. So it was kind of like a thowback." The first single off the album, 'Get The Party Started', is currently at number 2 in the UK charts, and has already been a hit in the Billboard hot 100. 'Missunderztood' is the follow-up to her double-platinum debut album, 'Can't Take Me Home' The singer had a hand in writing 95 percent of songs on the new disc, and has incorporated the talents of some major guest stars. Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler and Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora both feature, as does R&B producer Dallas Austin. The collection also includes the song 'My Vietnam', which ends with 'The Star-Spangled Banner'. Pink's patriotism is strong enough to make her want to do something for the troops in Afghanistan. But despite being inspired by Marylin Monroe's morale boosting trip to Korea, she's not sure a mere performance is enough. "I have a tremendous respect for soldiers and anyone that fights for freedom in any kind of way. So I definitely want to do something, I want to do something a little more powerful than going over and singing a song. I'm sure it's a great distraction, it was cool when Marilyn did it but it seems a little... it's seems like it is all done for press." As for other plans for the future, Pink is keeping her options open - "Take over the world and change all the laws, I don't know." 'Missunderztood' is due for release in the UK on 28th January 2002.

Unlike other awards which are voted upon by fans or industry insiders, the World Music Awards are based on sales, trophies going to top selling recording artists from around the world by genre and by nationality. A full list of winners follows at the end of the script.

The last show, recorded by American ABC, was viewed by over 1 billion viewers worldwide. With broadcast rights to the show sold in over 160 countries, figures are likely to be comparable this year. The World Music Awards is the only European awards show on primetime television in America. Veteran Scottish singer, ROD STEWART, formerly of The Faces, was given a Lifetime Achievement Award.

Other artists singing for their royal supper included Ricky Martin, Christina Aguilera, Shaggy, Nelly, Anastacia, up-and-coming Canadian singer Nelly Furtado, Italian Eros Ramazotti, German band Pur, The Vengaboys, Belgian singer Lara Fabian and Algerian Rai singer, Cheb Mami.

Video clip 'Complicated'. THE NEW CANADIAN BRITNEY? The new Britney, the new Christina, the new...well, the new hot, young singer to hit American radio. That's Avril Lavigne, a seventeen-year-old popster from Napanee in Ontario, Canada, who has gone from small-town high school student to releasing a debut album in just a year and a half. Her story began with a videotape of herself singing and dancing, which she sent round to various labels. That resulted in a phone call from one company which led to her moving to New York to work on some songs. As luck would have it, someone from Arista Records heard her singing and brought along the head of the company, L.A. Reid, to check her out. He liked what he heard and signed her up immediately. Critics have compared her singing voice to Natalie Imbruglia and Alanis Morissette, wrapped up in a punk princess package. And although her youth means that people say she's like Britney Spears, Lavigne gets angry at the suggestion that they are anything alike. Now the album is finished, as well as her new single, 'Complicated', which is about past relationships. And she's looking forward to getting out on the road with her band of punky boys.

FATBOY SLIM SWEEPS BOARD AT MTV AWARDS. Fatboy Slim's 'Weapon of Choice' video was the big winner at Thursday's MTV Video Music Awards, winning six of the nine awards for which it was nominated, but it was the sexy video 'Lady Marmalade' that took home the year's top trophy. On the over-the-top-goings-on front, Puff Daddy entered straddling an 18 wheeler truck while rapping his latest single 'Bad Boys For Life', the host made fun of Backstreet Boy AJ McLean's battle with alcohol abuse, Britney Spears writhed with snakes and the power went down just before U2's performance. 'Lady Marmalade,' the 'Moulin Rouge'-inspired video, was a collaboration featuring Pink, Christina Aguilera, Mya and Lil' Kim. It also received an award for best video from a film. The night's other big winner was 'N Sync, who received four awards for their special-effects laden video, 'Pop', including the viewer's choice award. The 'Weapon of Choice' clip by Fatboy Slim, a DJ, doesn't even feature the artist; its star is actor Christopher Walken, dancing around an empty hotel lobby. Among the early awards it nabbed was for best direction, for Spike Jonze, and best choreography. Fatboy Slim, real name Norman Cook, flew to New York with wife Zoe Ball for the show, playing a surprise set at a trendy club in the city earlier in the week. As always, however, the awards themselves tend to be an afterthought, upstaged by the evening's over-the-top moments. Thursday was no exception, as 'N Sync capped off a colorful rendition of 'Pop' with the King of Pop himself, Michael Jackson. Jackson gyrated for only a few seconds to 'N Sync's hit, but received a standing ovation from the crowd. Another anticipated moment was Spears' performance of her new song, 'I'm A Slave For You,' which featured the singer slithering on stage with a snake and a tiger, despite the protestations of animal rights campaigners PETA. The radical campaign group PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) had written to the 19-year-old star requesting that she not use big cats on stage, but the appeal failed and the singer performed a raunchy routine in a bikini top and low-cut hot pants. Her choreographer Wade Robson defended the routine, saying: "There wasno mistreatment of any animals. They had trainers and handlers." He added: "She was not afraid of the tiger. But the snake freaked her out." Mudvayne won the MTV2 award spotlighting emerging artists, but it was hard to concentrate on the heavy metal group's acceptance speech: They appeared at the podium in gory makeup that made them look as if they had been shot in the forehead, with fake blood oozing down their face and chest. And Macy Gray upstaged the announcement of the award for best new artist as she urged everyone "to take a minute and concentrate on my dress," which read: 'My new album drops Sept. 18, 2001.' The night was not without its glitches: As U2 was about to perform 'Elevation', a technical problem forced MTV to cut to commercials until it was fixed. "So MTV weren't paying their electricity bill," quipped Bono before the group received the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award for lifetime achievement. Collaborating with No Doubt's Gwen Stefani proved to be good move for Moby and Eve; the DJ won best male video for his 'South Side' video featuring Stefani, and Eve won best female video for 'Let Me Blow Ya Mind,' also with Stefani. Comedian-host Jamie Foxx got the evening off to a somewhat raunchy start. After parodying the evening's setting at the Metropolitan Opera House with opera renditions of hits like '"Bootylicious,' he launched into a monologue that had to be bleeped by MTV censors. Foxx had previously said he would not lampoon celebrities during the show, but apparently had a change of heart, joking about Mariah Carey's recent nervous breakdown and Backstreet Boy AJ McLean's battle with alcohol abuse. The Backstreet Boys gave out the evening's first award, for Best Hip-Hhop video. Before OutKast picked up their trophy, McLean thanked MTV and fans for supporting him during his recent stint in rehab. "Today is 64 days sober, and I'm proud of it," he said to applause. As the group made its way off the stage, Foxx held out a bottle to them. "You want some champagne, some champagne?" he joked before the stunned crowd. "It's apple cider, apple cider! You can drink apple cider, can't you?" Moments later, however, the mood turned somber with a tribute to Aaliyah, who was killed Aug. 25 in a plane crash. Janet Jackson, Missy 'Misdemeanor' Elliott, Ginuwine and Timbaland joined Aaliyah's brother, Rashad Haughton, in remembering the 22-year-old singer and actress, who was to be a presenter Thursday evening. "I think what we've got to learn out of this to appreciate each other while we're here on earth," said Elliott, who wore a white jacket with Aaliyah's image on the back and her name on the side. "I love you Aaliyah, and you're forever missed." Bono also paid tribute to Joey Ramone, who died earlier this year of lymphoma, as he introduced the remaining members of the legendary punk rock group The Ramones to the audience. Among the evening's performers was Jennifer Lopez, who sang her latest hit 'I'm Real' with rapper Ja Rule during the show; Linkin Park; U2; Jay-Z and Elliott, who dedicated her performance to Aaliyah. Prior to the show, fans who gathered outside to greet their favourite stars were treated to concert performances by Alien Ant Farm, City High and Eve. Sean 'P.Diddy' Combs made the grandest entrance: He arrived on top of an 18-wheeler truck, rapping his latest hit, 'Bad Boys for Life.'" Stars at the event included veteran rocker Mick Jagger, who arrived alone, and Craig David, currently in America trying to repeat his British success. Janet Jackson arrived hand-in-hand with a mystery man, while newly-engaged Jennifer Lopez was accompanied by fiance Chris Judd, but continued her series of revealing fashions with leopard-skin hotpants and top. And Pamela Anderson created a frenzy on the red carpet when she appeared with new boyfriend Kid Rock, dressed in a low-cut, midriff-baring leather top and hotpants. The awards ceremony was aired live on MTV. And the winners were . . . Best Video of the Year: 'Lady Marmalade' by Christina Aguilera, Lil Kim, Mya and Pink featuring Missy Elliott.
