Described by some as the Korean Britney Spears, BOA, which stands for Best of Asia, is hitting the States with her single Eat You Up. The single has already hit #3 in the iTunes Dance Chart and there are talks about a Flo Rida remix. I know what you’re thinking…is BOA really as good as her name proclaims? I’ve personally never ventured to Asia so I am not qualified to judge, but based on the single, I’m going to say no. Don’t get me wrong, this is a great dance song, but I can think of at least 10 things off the top of my head which can easily top that title.
Watch the video after the break, and tell me if I’m wrong. Don’t be swayed by her dance moves. Leave your thoughts in the comments.

“I have someone else that takes over when it’s time for me to work and when I’m on stage, this alter ego that I’ve created that kind of protects me and who I really am,” explained Beyonce Knowles, singing superstar and movie maven.
Who is this alter ego, this doppelganger who looks like Beyonce but acts provocative? From now on, you can just call Mrs. Jay-Z Sasha Fierce. Her new album “I Am…Sasha Fierce” debuts November 18 and the ad campaign has already begun among a blitz of public relations ops and even a weird MySpace page.
“Sasha Fierce is the fun, more sensual, more aggressive, more outspoken side and more glamorous side that comes out when I’m working and when I’m on the stage,” Knowles explained…or should I just call her Sasha? View the Sasha Fierce MySpace page for your opportunity to win a personal message and gift bag worth $500.
Is all this just about her new album…or is Beyonce really undergoing a name change?

Score another one for the Disney network. Just over a week after debuting Britney’s new video, it’s being reported that ABC will also be hosting Spears’ return concert.
According to the New York Post, the pop star will be hitting New York City’s Bryant Park on December 2. The Good Morning America appearance - which happens on the singer’s 27th birthday - will air on the same day the new album, Circus, drops.
While any Britney appearance would be highly-anticipated, this winter concert carries extreme significance. The morning show gig will be the first time Spears has sung (or lip-synched) in public since her 2007 MTV spectacle. The GMA event will also help kick off the tour reportedly set for next spring.

In case you weren’t planted in front of the Disney Channel yesterday, here’s your chance to watch the official video for “Lovebug.”
The Jonas Brothers clip - the latest for their A Little Big Longer album - features actors Camilla Belle (10,000 BC) and Josh Boswell in a period love story. (Those who are old enough to remember the ‘80s might feel like they are watching Elton John’s “I Guess That’s Why They Call It the Blues.”)
After the jump, you can see the trio briefly talk about the making of the video.
In some MTV performances, it’s the lead singer’s intention to end up on the ground. (Remember Madonna’s classic Like a Virgin number?) Unfortunately, that was not the case for Katy Perry last night.
At yesterday’s MTV Latin America bash, the “I Kissed a Girl” singer gave the foreign audience something to remember the American by. Perry - who coincidentally used a cake as a prop like Madonna - thought it would be entertaining to dive into the large dessert at the end of her song. Unfortunately for her, the entertainment she provided was clearly unscripted.
The embarrassment begins around the :20 mark.
Forget the preview pics. Now it’s time to watch Britney’s new “Womanizer” video in full.
In the clip, Spears plays a sexy waitress, a sexy limo driver and a sexy office worker. (Sense a theme?) She also spends a great deal of time in the nude. (I guess there’s no point in wasting that toned up body.) Not surprisingly, “Womanizer” was directed by Joseph Kahn, the same man who had her in a barely-there sparkly number for her “Toxic” video.
Britney’s next album, Circus, drops on December 2.
While it’s customary for artists to debut one single at a time, Beyonce Knowles recently previewed two tracks from I Am…, her third solo album.
In a message posted on her website, the 26-year-old revealed that it took longer to create this “baby” than anything else she’s done in over 10 years. Then again, she did record over 70 songs for it.
“I have worked on this album for close to one year. I have taken the time so I can create my sound. Something that says who I am at this stage in my life. I have poured my heart and soul into it. It is my baby. It is the most time I have spent on any project since my first records as a member of Destiny’s Child when I was 15 years old. I have recorded over 70 songs and have created a sound that reveals all of me. I am in a different place right now and I wanted people to see the many sides of me. The music is upbeat for the dance, fun side and it is reflective, passionate and serious for the personal side. I have taken risks here. I am not afraid and my music will explain it all. There is no label or tag on my sound. It’s me and I am so excited to share it with the world on November 18.”

Last year at this time, fans were getting their first look at Britney Spear’s horrible video for “Gimme More.” Now in just a few short days, we’ll get our chance to see what a revamped Spears has been working on.
“Womanizer,” the first single off the singer’s upcoming album, comes at a time when the 26-year-old’s life is on an upswing. Just last month, Britney picked up three awards at the 2008 VMAs for her “Piece of Me” video. Even though she repeated the same acceptance speech several times, it was hard denying a marked improvement since her last appearance.
This Friday, viewers of 20/20 will get the first opportunity to preview “Womanizer.” In the video, a physically-fit Britney takes on three different characters. (Thankfully, a woman dancing around a stripper pole is not one of them.) You can see two more of her looks after the jump.
