Live Nation CEO Irving Azoff originally mentioned in Feburary that a marger could happen for the star sometime later in the year. ”Live Nation, prior to the merger, entered into some of these all-rights deals, so there are certain artists, Madonna being one of them, that there is a recorded-music strategy,” Azoff said. “Once she gets the album recorded, we’ll sit down with her and her manager, Guy Oseary, and figure out what’s best for the record. It has to start with the music.”

Britney’s Songwriter Claude Kelly Explains ‘Gasoline’

Britney Spears Gasoline Britney’s Songwriter Claude Kelly Explains ‘Gasoline’

Britney Spears’ album Femme Fatale is a saucy but dark LP that has everything to do with club and dance music. One of the less talked about songs, which holds the essence of the whole album in it is the fiery self explanatory song ‘Gasoline,’- a Claude Kelly written song. According to Kelly, he wrote this song while focusing on the sexiest moments of Britney’s career.

Talking in an interview with MTV, Kelly said that when he was writing the song, the theme he wanted to emulate was that of the one displayed in previous Britney songs such as ‘Toxic,’ ‘Slave 4 U’ and ‘Boys.’  he said that Britney in the physically hot club with guys around her is a very popular theme and he thought that revisiting it once more would be a lot of fun.  He said that even though some may think that Britney would not have been able to recreate the kind of ‘man-eater’ persona that she was once known for in her raunchy songs, she actually pulled it off without breaking a sweat, proving that she still has what it takes to do whatever she wants. page go Britney’s Songwriter Claude Kelly Explains ‘Gasoline’ Continue reading Britney’s Songwriter Claude Kelly Explains ‘Gasoline’ »
