    It's no secret that Demi Lovato has been through some tough times. The chart-topping pop singer has made no bones about it, sharing stories of her struggles with drugs, alcohol, and bulimia with her fans and the media. In fact, the reason the singer was chosen to sing "Let It Go" – the emotive, Oscar-winning song from Disney's animated film, "Frozen," about overcoming adversity – is because she transcended her tumultuous past.

    Unlike Guns N' Roses' notorious album, "Chinese Democracy," which took more than a decade to finish, Jack White has announced that he will release the fastest record ever made – completing it in less than a day.

    The former White Stripes frontman plans to enter the studio at his record label, Third Man Records in Nashville, on the morning of April 19 – Record Store Day – and record a live, direct-to-acetate version of the title track from his forthcoming album, "Lazaretto."

    The masters of the limited-edition single will immediately be sent to a nearby record pressing company, United Record Pressing, which will begin pressing the 45s right away, using photos of White's performance as the record sleeve design.

  • Kylie Minogue on Her New Album, Upcoming Tour and Crying on Pharrell’s Shoulder

    Kylie Minogue is a woman of many contradictions. She effortlessly switches from a pop diva in gold hot pants one day to a warm and nurturing judge on "The Voice U.K." and "The Voice Australia" the next. She's also someone who appears poised and completely pulled together, but will openly admit that she has bad days just like the rest of us; times when she doubts herself and ends up in tears.

    Of course, in Minogue 's version of a bad day, she ends up crying on Pharrell Williams's shoulder. She had just met the famed singer/producer and was supposed to be recording a track for her new album, "Kiss Me Once," when she broke down.

    "Pharrell was great – I had two days with him," she recalls. "One of those days was a bad day and I was trying to stay cool. I had a meltdown, lots of tears. I don’t even know what I said to him. But he talked me through it. He was very warm and he wrote that amazing single."
