Cee Lo Green may have just finished a residency at the Colosseum in Las Vegas, but he’s still not about to offer any words of wisdom to Britney Spears about her upcoming Sin City gig at Planet Hollywood.
“She’s a seasoned veteran, you know what I mean,” the returning judge on X Factor said at the Billboard Music Awards. “I don’t know if she needs any of my advice. I need some of hers.”
Meanwhile, Las Vegas show veteran Celine Dion also talked Britney.
“She knows exactly what she needs to do,” said Dion, who is currently recording a new English language album. “She is a hard worker. She’s very talented and you know what, there’s a place for everybody. You just have to make sure you take your seat. You have to make sure you get ready, you prepare yourself, you focus and everybody can do it. She can do it.
“I’m a mom,” she added. “I do my show and I enjoy the moment and I run to my kids. That’s my success.”

Zoe Saldana says she knows the reason why Britney Spears’ star shined so much brighter than other pop stars of her day — and it didn’t have to do with her incredible abs.
The 34-year-old saw the pop starlet in action on the set of “Crossroads,” a 2002 MTV Films-produced flick about three best friends who go on a road trip across the country after high school. Although the movie was panned by a majority of critics, Saldana said it opened her eyes to Spears’ celebrity.
“Britney’s a very beautiful human being,” Saldana told Allure for the magazine’s June 2013 issue. “After I worked with her, I realized that there was a reason why she was the most popular pop artist over so many other pop artists at that time who were more talented, had better voices. And it was because of her heart, her soul.”
Saldana has long been a fan of Spears. In 2011, she told the Daily Beast that she has been on Team Brit Brit since “…Baby One More Time.” Although the two didn’t necessarily become BFFLs while making “Crossroads,” Saldana still gained a respect for her.
“I have so much pride in that,” she said. “I played a character I’d never played before—this little Southern belle—and I got to meet an artist that was at her peak at that time. She had the most amazing energy and was always positive and a very discreet person. We were young, too, and got to make a movie about three friends on a road trip. It was so much fun!”
The “Star Trek” actress isn’t the only celeb to show Spears some love. Before the MTV Movie Awards last month, Selena Gomez revealed Spears inspired her to get a little sexier with her “Come & Get It” performance.
Idolator: “Maybe we’ve all just grown accustomed to seeing Britney Spears pushing boundaries, but the pop provocateur is playing it safe on her Smurfs 2 soundtrack cut “Ooh La La” — and the critics have taken note. While they complimented the song’s sound, nobody seemed particularly floored by it — then again, nobody hated it, either, which is a good thing.”
Spin: “It’s peppy, guitar-bursting dance-pop that shouldn’t overly upset Papa Smurf. After the ‘Britney, bitch’ swagger of ‘Scream & Shout,’ this one is decidedly PG-13, beckoning us to ‘come with me and be my ooh la la.’ Spears will still dance with us if we don’t wear ‘designer clothes,’ she promises.”
E! Online: “The catchy ditty layers Brit-Brit’s whimsical vocals atop upbeat electro bangers, while a rollicking guitar strums in and out. Consider it vintage Britney…with an oddly folksy pop-tart twist.”
Vulture: “‘Ooh La La’ is undeniably reminiscent of ‘I Wanna Go,’ with a little Ke$ha influence thrown in there. She raps! Well, actually, she speaks: ‘Turn it up till the speakers pop.’
MuuMuse: “It’s a shimmering, summery guitar-led track with a punchy pulse, very similar to Madonna‘s ‘Superstar’ off of MDNA (‘Ooh la la, you’re my superstar!’).”
Popdust: “Word on the web is that ‘Ooh La La’ sounds exactly like a Katy Perry song, and while we wouldn’t exactly dispute that—it was written by Bonnie McKee, who penned some of Perry’s biggest hits—it does have an appropriately sugary take on EDM. No grime this time for Britney, and no Perry-style double-entendres either; this is a song from a kids’ movie, and it shows.”
Metro: “So what’s ‘Ooh La La’ like? It’s a moody, stripped down little acoustic number, in which Britney meditates on ego and mortality amidst avant-garde instrumentation reminiscent of Bon Iver. Ha, no, it’s a bouncy summer pop song with agreeably nonsensical lyrics like ‘Baby, come with me and be my ooh la la.’ But wouldn’t my version be amazing?”

Pop star Britney Spears has come under fire from gun-control groups after her young son was photographed playing with a large toy weapon at a California hotel earlier this month.
Six-year-old Jayden was pictured brandishing a plastic gun during a family trip to the Four Seasons in Westlake Village on May 4, and now the founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, Shannon Watts, has taken aim at the Toxic hitmaker for allowing her child to play with fake weapons.
She tells the National Enquirer, “As parents it is our responsibility to set a good example for our children, and as a celebrity parent it is especially important. Jayden was photographed not just playing with any toy gun. It looks like an assault weapon.
“It is very disappointing to see Britney allowing her young son to play with such a violent toy.”
