  • BRITNEY SPEARS was the big winner at the NRJ Music Awards, scooping two gongs at the prestigious ceremony in Cannes, France.The Toxic hitmaker, who wasn't in attendance for Saturday's (17Jan09) prizegiving, was honoured with the Best International Female Artist accolade as well as a Best Video prize for her hit single Womanizer. Enrique Iglesias was stunned after he was named Best International Male Artist, telling the crowd he wasn't the deserving winner: "I feel like Akon should have gotten this award. It’s a great honour for me to receive it." The Pussycat Dolls scooped the Best International Group, beating off competition from rockers Coldplay. But the British group's frontman Chris Martin wasn't left empty-handed - he took home a statuette to celebrate his band's 10th anniversary. Delivering his acceptance speech in almost perfect French, the star said: "I’m sorry but my French is like an old car - it’s very slow and very boring to listen to." Explaining his bandmates' absence, he joked: “I came here alone as my bandmates are on the beach, probably eating ice cream at the moment!" The main winners are as follows:Best International Male Artist: Enrique IglesiasBest French Male Artist: Christophe MaeBest French Group/Duet: CleopatreBest French New Artist: ZahoBest International Song: Rihanna - DisturbiaBest International Album: Katy Perry - One Of The BoysBest International Female Artist: Britney SpearsBest International Group/Duet: Pussycat DollsBest International New Artist: The Jonas BrothersBest Video: Britney Spears - Womanizer
  • on Obama's Inaugural -It's hard to imagine what will be more exciting for Sasha and Malia Obama next week: their father's historic swearing-in to the Oval Office – or seeing the Jonas Brothers perform live. "We know Sasha and Malia are fans of 'Burning Up,' so we'll be playing that," Nick, who will perform with his brothers during next week's Inaugural festivities in Washington, D.C., told reporters at a Television Critics Association panel for their Disney series Jonas Friday. This won't be the Jonas's first encounter with the First Family-to-be: Nick, 16, says the Obama girls beat him at ping-pong backstage at The Ellen DeGeneres Show. "[There was] a little pressure with the 25 Secret Service agents there," Joe Jonas, 19, piped up in his little brother's defense. The Jonas's Camp Rock co-star Demi Lovato is also Washington-bound. "I'm ridiculously nervous, to a point where I don't know what I'll be able to do with myself," she said. "It's a huge honor to be a part of this especially because it's not any just any other president. It's an amazing opportunity," said Lovato, 16, adding that she would be performing "Get Back" and "La La Land" from her album. Although she's not old enough, Lovato says she can't wait to vote and is interested in politics. "We'll get into political debates, me and my friends, and I get into heated debates," she says, adding that she won't share her viewpoints publicly. "I'm definitely private on that matter." With any luck, Nick Jonas says this won't be his last time in the nation's capital: "I've always talked about working in the White House one day," he quipped.

  • OMG! Thousands of screaming Jonas Brothers fans crammed Joe Louis Arena Sunday night, swirling their glow sticks, tugging on homemade band T-shirts and, totally jumping when the trio belted out tween favorites.
    But many in the crowd, which was composed primarily of the Claire’s set, had to thank not Kevin, Joe, and Nick for the chance to hear the bubblegum ballads, but the other Big Three.
    You know, like, the Detroit carmakers.
    Tori Ley, 7, of Westland was among the fans who got in thanks to the splashy auto show charity preview gala. Every $400-a-pop ticket for the Friday night event came with a Jonas Brothers concert pass. Friends who’d attended the soiree passed them along to her family.
    “They’re cute and cool,” she said of the well-coiffed cuties on stage, her own hair laced with glitter gel for the big night.
    She liked all three of the brothers Jonas equally, but Melissa Woy had a clear favorite: Nick.
    “Every time he sings ‘A Little Bit Longer,’ he cries,” gushed the 14-year-old Mt. Clemens resident, who was wearing a self-designed puffy-paint T-shirt crammed with Jonas Brothers trivia and doodles.
    Although most chaperones were moms, a handful of dads were on deck — more than a few fortified with concession-stand beer. LOL!
    “It’s a little bit weird,” confessed Tony Rosati, 37, of Windsor, who usually goes to the Joe for Red Wings games, but was now hanging out with his 11-year-old so-excited-she-danced-around-before-the-show-even-began daughter Olivia.
    Despite the Beatles-esque reception at the concert, the EMT station nearest the VIP entrance was still empty after the first few songs

  • DETROIT — It was like so awesome clean-cut fun you wanted to totally dance your feet off!
    If, that is, you could hear the music.
    The Jonas Brothers, the hottest boy band on the planet, delivered their catchy pop wrapped in smiles and fashionable costumes Sunday night at the Joe Louis Arena.
    The screaming that welcomed the Jonas family bore a nuclear-fusion feel, that started with the band’s orchestral intro and continued when a giant JB sign was lit aflame, and somehow intensified when the brothers launched into their hit That’s Just The Way We Roll.
    When they sashayed into Don’t Take My Heart, it sounded like they were singing what the entire crowd was thinking.
    The steam kept erupting for hits Hold On and the rocking BB Good, also a theme of the wholesome act.
    With grins, karate kicks and the occasional flip, these youngsters boast a confidence and stage presence that belies their age. And with that sort of reception, how can you blame them?
    Their reach keeps growing, helped by energetic stage antics and main singer Joe’s connection with the audience.
    The Jonas Brothers achieved their popularity through the children’s network the Disney Channel, and Kevin, 21, Joe, 19, and Nick, 16, have been gaining ground ever since — as the hysterical Joe Louis crowd emphasized.
    People who bought $400 charity preview tickets Friday night at the North American International Auto Show had a ticket thrown in for the Jonas Brothers. But if the ritzy car crowd expected a business-like environment at the Joe Louis — as they had Friday night at Cobo Arena for the comparatively ancient and sparsely attended Doobie Brothers — they had another headache-inducing thing coming.
    This was mass hysteria dressed in pink, waving glow-sticks and largely chaperoned by smirking parents.
    When opening act KSM, a punky all-girl band, strutted onto a high-pitched scream went up as if everyone had just won a free iPhone.
    Same goes for the next warmup act Honor Society, an energetic troupe of preppy boys in jeans and ties.
    But the Jonas Brothers forced the group squeal into ear-damage territory.
    The lads, of course, were playing to a receptive audience. And never mind that the Jonases have taken vows of purity, wearing rings to prove their commitment to abstaining from sex before marriage, not to mention declining drugs and alcohol.
    Amid a sea of ecstatic teens and tweens and kids as young as perhaps four, this was Jonas as religion. It seemed like every second girl in attendance wore a T-shirt professing some sort of love of the brothers Jonas — with the likes of “Mrs. Joe Jonas” emblazoned on the back.
    Windsor’s Ariana Ventrella, 12, attending her first concert ever with her friend Ciara Multari, 12, considered the event amazing.
    “It’s really exciting,” Ariana said from her main-floor seat. “I’m a pretty big fan. Huge fan.”
    “We like listening to their music and dancing to it all the time,” added Ciara. “We listened to it coming over here.”
    Take away the parents, and some bemused adults may have liked the idea, the average fan was about 12 — seemingly every one armed with a camera for souvenir hug shots and phones for real-time texting.
    OMG, the JBs are sooo HOT!!!

  • Brittany Snow recently chatted it up with J-14 mag and dished all about friendship, Prom Night and Zac Efron. Here’s what she had to say:On the special features of her horror flick DVD, Prom Night: “Throughout the entire movie the director, Nelson McCormack, Jonathon Sheck and myself did commentary to talk about the funny things that happened on set. There’s also a gag reel, which is really funny.”On good friend Sophia Bush and Amanda Bynes: “We catch up every once in awhile, and whenever we see each other it’s really great. It’s great to have girlfriends you can go weeks without talking to and know the next time you talk to them, it’s going to be totally normal and back to the way it always is. That’s where you know you’re really good friends.”On teen heartthrob Zac Efron: “Zac is one of the most genuine, sweet people that I’ve met, and he deserves every good thing that comes to him. He really is just a normal, sweet, charismatic guy, and he’s very special. He’s so busy, and he’s all over the place, so when we do hang out, it’s him dodging the paparazzi and stuff like that. I don’t understand how he does it.”You can see the pictures from Brittany, Vanessa & Zac hanging out here!
