VIDEO: Rihanna And Britney Spears Team Up On Stripper Poles For Billboard Music Awards

Published

on

Rihanna took to the stage at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards for one of the night’s buzzworthy performances. She sang her single “S&M” with Britney spears, Rihanna in white (but not exactly the chaste variety!) and Britney in sleek black with bunny ears. Then it was off to the stripper poles to finish off the song. (Britney comes in at about 2:45.)

Spears, who has come under some level of scrutiny lately for phoning in her choreography in recent videos, didn’t have a lot of it on her plate tonight either, but she looked great. The audience didn’t seem to mind when the duo pulled away from their stripper poles and started a pillow fight, either. That said, hasn’t the stripper pole thing been done before? Isn’t it becoming a little cliche?

The video is below… although it may get pulled down before too long!)

Brian Balthazar Hosts Miss Mississippi USA, Crowning First Black Winner In the State’s History

Miss Mississippi USA crowned its first African American winner in the organization’s 67-year history.

What an amazing night I had hosting Miss Mississippi USA in Tunica, Mississippi. First of all, I am always impressed by the women competing. They work hard on their education, spend countless hours doing public service work, and many of them have already formed their own charity initiatives before they’ve even hit 22 years old.

But this one was particularly special because Asya Branch was crowned Miss Mississippi – a beautiful, bright young woman. She will go on to compete in the Miss USA in Nevada later next year.

Branch has dedicated her platform to helping children with a parent in prison. Her own father has been incarcerated more than half of her life, and she has spent those years fighting the stigma and judgement that can come with it.

She told the Clarion Ledger in 2018, “I want to empower people all throughout our state. Not just women, but young children, young men, young adults. Just anyone, young or old, I want to leave some sort of impact in their lives.”

Here is the moment she discovered she won. And yes, that’s my voice there making the announcement!

POP Video Flashback: In 2005, I Was Santa’s Elf At Macy’s For A Day

In 2005, a younger, idealistic me spent the day at the amazing Macy’s Santaland, under the name “Peppermint Stick.” It was a great time, and the kids were both funny and adorable. (The ones I didn’t scare.) Some of them are applying for college now.
