Beyoncé has done something no other major pop star has done before. She released Friday, without notice, a self-titled album with 17 new music videos. The Parkwood Entertainment/Columbia Records set is available exclusively on iTunes. "I didn't want to release my music the way I've done it," she said in a statement. "I am bored [...]
They don't call him the Motor City Madman for nothing. Ted Nugent, who turns 65 on December 13, may be getting long in the tooth, but he's still got the bite of a rabid pitbull and still attacks a guitar like it was a wild boar. Put simply, Nugent hasn't mellowed with age. If anything, [...]
It's not hard to take literally the title Serial Killers, the name of B-Real, Xzibit and Demrick's new super group. The trio that released its debut mixtape, "Serial Killers Vol. 1," on Halloween, lives up to its namesake for the video for its lead single, "The First 48." A play on A&E's homicide investigation series, [...]

Why did Britney Spears’s latest album, "Britney Jean," perform so terribly? In fairness, Spears did score the only debut in this week’s Top 10, and she’s having to compete with the "Duck Dynasty" people, who have the Lord on their side. But nobody is calling "Britney Jean" a success. The album debuted on the Billboard [...]

The rocker debuted her new track, "Uprising of Love," in NYC this week, in conjunction with the launch of the same-named new Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex (LGBTI) non-profit organization. The group took [...]
While many music videos are merely slick, soulless promos for potential hit singles, occasionally a video comes out that transcends crass commercialism and actually stands alone as a work of visual art. Happily, quite a few such artworks hit TV screens and computer monitors for three or so minutes at a time this year, and [...]
Do we even need to say it?! Okay: It's Christmas time, pretty baby!

A 16-year-old kid from Quebec, David Thibault, is wowing everyone from local music fans to the Twittersphere with his spot-on rendition of Elvis Presley's classic "Blue Christmas."

Q: How much does Garth Brooks stand to make off of his boxed set? How pent up is demand for his music, given that he has released three box sets? A: The Oklahoma-based musician may have given us nothing between 2001 and 2009, and he may have limited his distribution to a single store — Wal Mart — but demand for the singer’s twang remains almost as insane as it was during his pre-Chris Gaines days.
"The Monster" by Eminem featuring Rihanna jumps to #1 on the Hot 100, displacing Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball." "The Monster" is Eminem's fifth #1; Rihanna's 13th.

Oops!...She Didn't Do It Again. Britney Spears' Britney Jean enters The Billboard 200 at #4, with first-week sales of 107K.
