OK, gang. Let's get a couple of things straight. Let the record show that we here at Buzzworthy were WAY OUT IN FRONT on this whole "John Mayer Looks Like Johnny Depp" thing. You hear us, Kanye West? Just because you tweet it, doesn't mean we didn't plant our flag on this one first.
Here we have Depp, I mean, Mayer, at LAX. Now, we always like to look at pics of celebs in airports. And we must say, John Mayer is looking rather "Jack Sparrow For J. Crew S/S '11" in this shot. You know when he looks even more like Johnny Depp?
That's right. Nothing brings out the Scissorhands in Mayer like being forced to nearly disrobe for airport security. Seriously, that is uncanny!
What do you think of Mayer's new, goatee-d, "Pirates Of The Caribbean" look? Let us know in the comments.
Britney Spears' "Hold It Against Me" video has been one of the most teased videos of all-time. Not that we're complaining; all it does is turn us into even more frothing-at-the-mouth Britney fans than we already are.
We've been posting the teasers, as they drop, for a couple of weeks now; each one giving only the slightest of glimpses into the insane, sci-fi, Brit-tastic universe held within the video. If you haven't read T. Kyle's unbelievable, .gif-heavy posts on the teasers, do yourself a favor and rectify that situation.
But now, devoted Britney faithful, comes the mother lode! Below we've got for you an epic 30-second trailer for the "Hold It Against Me" video, which provides us with perhaps the most sustained look into what is sure to be a pretty phenomenal video. It features Brit rolling around in some paint and pulling off some truly fierce dance moves.
Then, in the following two videos, teasers 12 and 13 respectively, you'll get some very brief glimpses of the action; some flashing lights in 12 and some dancers writhing in their underwear in 13.
If you're feeling all teased out, don't worry. The full-length "Hold It Against Me" video is only one day away! Britney Spears' "Hold It Against Me," directed by Jonas Åkerlund, will premiere on MTV.com, 9:55 p.m. ET, Feb. 17.
Well, didn't that just make the Internet go boom! Katy Perry is still riding high off of the inspiration house anthem "Firework" (which is to say nothing of the fact that you can't make it through the day without humming "Teenage Dream"...just ask Nicole Kidman), but that's not stopping her from releasing another single off of her huge sophomore album. And this time she's brought along Kanye West for a little remix action on her track "E.T."
The O.G. version of "E.T." is a mid-tempo number about an addictive love, swathed in keyboards and swirling guitars. On the remix, the song remains the same, but with some Kanye psycho-sexual rhymes to kick things off, "Welcome to the danger zone, step into the fantasy, you are now invited to the other side of sanity," Kanye spits, unwittingly invoking Kenny Loggins.
It's great to hear these two on the same track. And we're even more psyched to watch them in the upcoming video for the song. If it's anything like the photo from the set that came out yesterday...

The Foo Fighters have a new album, Wasting Light, coming out soon-ish. And as sure as water is wet and the sky is (usually) blue, it will definitely rock. These are just things we've come to expect.
The first single from Wasting Light is called "Rope," and it's expected to drop on March 1. Which would make this new track, "White Limo," something of a coming attraction, I would guess. As coming attractions go, however, this will certainly make your Wednesday 10 times more thrashy.
"White Limo" finds main Foo Fighter, Dave Grohl, returning to his roots. And by roots, I'm not referring to his time behind the kit as the drummer for Nirvana. Nope, we're going all the way back to Grohl's days in the D.C. hardcore punk scene as a member of Scream.
What you get is a blistering, paint-stripping thrash track that mixes mosh-inducing hard-core with the Foo's penchant for melody. The track also comes with a vaguely official video, starring Lemmy of Motorhead and the Foo Fighters as some irate gardeners.
Check out the Foo Fighters' "White Limo." Wasting Light is out April 8.

Girl. The fire. What is the deal? First there was the "Love The Way You Lie" video with Eminem and there was fire and we were like, OK, we get it: metaphor for the end of a relationship (or not metaphor for...being on fire, whatever).
Then there was Sunday night's Grammy performance of "What's My Name?" and we started thinking, your name is pyromaniac (na na na). Even Drake seemed a little alarmed! Then! Last night, at the Brit Awards, you break out the flamey flames again! In England!
I mean, this is a place where the cops don't have guns, so it's only safe to assume the firemen don't have hoses! You need to be careful with that. You know who is a flammable object? You!
We don't want to hear about you cuddling up with a Blu-ray copy of "Backdraft" or doing "Fire Marshall Bill" impersonations at parties. Slowly back away from the matchbook....for the good of us all!

While we're all here in the States, trying to get over the eggs, the Bieber snubs and everything else that came out of the Grammy Awards, Avril Lavigne is simply on to the next one.
Here we see the punk pixie in a seemingly awesome mood, hanging out in London in preparation for tonight's annual Brit Awards. But before all that she was walking around the greater London metro area, rocking a hairstyle that delightfully reminds us of a package of Starburst.
Lavigne will be presenting at tonight's awards, though, as of this morning, she was still in the dark about her duties, telling the BBC, “I don’t know what award I am presenting yet, but I am excited." Taking a very "What The Hell" kind of attitude!! We approve!
As MTV's POSTED Artist of the Month, the men of Linkin Park have been sending us updates from the road as they tour the U.S.A. in support of their A Thousand Suns LP. This winter has been a tough one on everyone, and Linkin Park is no exception. In the below tour blog, the band's third missive from the road, drummer Rob Bourdon explains the reasons behind the band having to cancel several shows on its tour. Read the tour diary below, enjoy more photos (from Atlanta, Boston, Philadelphia and Minneapolis) and watch a video of the band warming up for a show in Tampa, Fla. You can check out more blogs, videos and photos over at Posted.MTV.com.
After battling a snowstorm last week, we're facing a new challenge to overcome. [Singer] Chester[Bennington] is ill and under doctor's orders to refrain from performing. We've had to cancel back-to-back shows in Washington, D.C., and Uncasville, Conn. We're extremely disappointed that we're not able to play these shows, but Chester needs to take this time to get well. Even though we know you're bummed, you guys have been incredibly supportive and Chester appreciates all of the "get well soon" messages posted on linkinpark.com, Twitter and Facebook.
Thanks to everyone who's come out to support us on this tour. The crowds have been insane, and we're excited to get back onstage.

I think, without naming names, we all know that childhood stardom can be a slippery slope. But Miranda Cosgrove, star of "iCarly" and burgeoning pop music sensation has remarkably managed to keep her balance. And with this new video for "Dancing Crazy," the lead single from her upcoming High Maintenance EP, she sort of shows why.
"Dancing Crazy" depicts the kind of mildly illicit fun that won't get you on TMZ. In the clip, Cosgrove sneaks out of her house at the very PG hour of 11 p.m., only to head over to the high school football field for a dance party in the U.S.A. It's basically like "Friday Night Lights" meets "Footloose."
The song itself is a combo of Miley Cyrus' (somewhat) aforementioned "Party..." and Avril Lavigne's "What The Hell" (it seems like organs are very "in" for 2011).
Check out Miranda Cosgrove's "Dancing Crazy" below. High Maintenance is due out March 15.

So why don't we just say what is right there, staring us in the face, shall we? Justin Bieber is a little salty. It's understandable. Sunday night's Grammy Awards was supposed to be a coronation; the cherry on top of his 18 months of world domination. Heck, even the guys in Train thought it was going to be his night, making a joke about his assumed trophy haul when they picked up their award.
But it wasn't to be. Esperanza Spalding won Best New Artist and Bieber failed to pick up any other hardware. At first, he was respectful, if obviously a little disappointed. But now? Now he's starting to seem a little salty!
Biebs appeared on "Chelsea Lately" last night, where, in the course of talking about his rotten Grammy night, he took some shots at Lady Gaga, dissing the artistic merit of her egg arrival.
Above, we see Bieber exiting a plane in London. Transatlantic travel can do anyone's head in, but that's a scowl we don't commonly see on the face of the Bieber, is it? My man is really taking this loss to heart!
Frankly, I'm kind of into angry Bieber. Teens need to let their emotions out somehow or they'll go nuts. Just because he's on camera 24/7 doesn't mean he's not going to be in a rotten mood from time to time. If anything, it makes him more human. We were starting to wonder!
