Britney, Kris Kross & More

How would you like to read a new book written by Britney Spears?

Seems fascinating, right? I mean think of the possibilities – a look inside her life, both then and now, from touring to family issues to X Factor judging to children and everything in between.

But actually, Brit is in talks to write a fiction novel about a pop star. AKA, she’s probably going to write all true stuff but call it fiction, since we’ll never know the difference! Haha. No firm announcement on when this will happen yet, but rumors say early 2013.

Apparently, this will be the second fiction book from Britney. Somehow I missed the first, in 2001, that she published with her Mom (Lynne Spears). That one was called “A Mother’s Gift.” Either way, it’ll be interesting to read this if and when it comes to fruition.

Next, we get to the bottom of a listener question.

This one comes to us on Twitter (@roundtrip90s) from Emilie in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

“Love ur show. What happened to Kris Kross? Any idea?”

Wow… that’s a good question. Especially since google searches tell you different answers.

From calling a couple of my friends in the record industry who usually know what they’re talking about, I can tell you the following.

Chris Kelly and Chris Smith (Kris Kross) are both still very much in the music industry, although mainly behind the scenes.

Kelly runs a record label called “C.CO. Records” and Smith works as a producer for many different artists. There were also quiet rumors in 2008 that the two would get back together for a reunion show and new album, but these days, that seems like a long shot.

If you have any random questions about any 90’s artist, fire ’em my way, @roundtrip90s on Twitter or

Until next time, Take Care, and keep livin’ the 90’s dream!
