It’s and Britney, bitch! The highly-anticipated collaboration between Black Eyed Peas' creative mastermind Will.i.Am and pop superstar Britney Spears made its visual premiere on last tonight’s episode of 'The X Factor USA', where she serves as a judge.

The single, which currently holds the top spot on iTunes, serves as the latest single off his upcoming solo album '#willpower', which is scheduled to be released next year. Check out the video, which features a lot of product placement, beneath:

Sigh. On a positive note, Spears looks stunning and luckily for Will, the song will make a mark simply because she is featured on it. Beyond that, it is a struggle to find anything good to say about this mess of a collaboration.

Alabama-bred heartthrob Channing Tatum bared most of his sculpted body for the surprise summer hit 'Magic Mike', and it clearly paid off for the stripper turned actor, who has been named Sexiest Man Alive by People magazine.

When the 32-year-old star found out he'd be joining the list of elite men that includes last year's winner Bradley Cooper, Ryan Reynolds, and two-time winners Brad Pitt and George Clooney, he almost didn't believe it. "My first thought was, 'Y'all are messing with me,'" he told the magazine, adding that he then told his wife, actress Jenna Dewan Tatum. "Yeah, she calls me the Sexiest Man Alive now." The issue is on newsstands now.

New Music: Rihanna featuring Chris Brown - 'Nobodies Business'

Rihanna, Rihanna

As their controversial relationship friendship continues to make headlines, Rihanna and Chris Brown add fuel to the growing fire with "Nobodies Business".

Taken from her seventh studio album 'Unapologetic', which hits stores tomorrow (November 19th), the song sees the former lovers playing a game of manipulation as they declare their relationship is private, while ironically singing about it. Listen beneath:

There are several positive factors about the Michael Jackson-influenced cut, which samples "The Way You Make Me Feel", and most of those positives lay within the track's thumping beat and slick production.

The lyrics, however, reek of desperation and the use of auto-tune doesn't help the case that Rihanna and Brown are going completely out of their way to make.
