Pop acts on television this week include Britney Spears, who phones into ‘Total Request Live’ on Monday to premiere her new video ‘Everytime’; Fefe Dobson, who appears on ‘TRL’ on Tuesday; Evan and Jaron, who perform on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ on Wednesday; *NSYNC star Joey Fatone, who appears on ‘The Sharon Osbourne Show’ on Wednesday; and Toby Lightman, who performs on ‘The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn’ on Friday.
Fefe Dobson was on MuchMusic’s Much on Demand on March 2nd to promote her new video ‘Everything’. The Canadian singer talked about touring with Justin Timberlake, as well as teaming up in the weight room with the *NSYNC star. Asked if Justin’s body glistened while working out, Fefe cooed, “Yes, and somehow the sweat on his body wrote out ‘Fefe’. I don’t know. That’s insane.” But did she teach him any exercises? “I was definitely teaching him everything he knows,” Fefe giggled. She also commented on Janet Jackson’s Super Bowl breast flash, which led to her Pro Bowl performance being nixed. Dobson complained, “Man, it’s just a boob. I mean, it’s not a big deal.”

Edna Gundersen of USA Today took part in an online chat on Tuesday with readers, and was asked about newcomer Fefe Dobson, and how she reminds people of Avril Lavigne. “She’s a fascinating and promising newcomer, whose self-titled debut (radio-friendly alt-pop with rock bite) arrived in October,” Gunderson said. “She’s a Toronto teenager with a lot of sass. I frankly think she outclasses Avril.” Read more.
