Beyoncé's next album release and tour status remain uncertain, but she has good reason: the 31-year-old singer is reportedly expecting her second child with husband Jay-Z.

The news, as reported by Us Weekly, would offer a clear explanation of her recent ailments: Beyoncé canceled a show this past Tuesday in Antwerp, Belgium on doctors' orders due to dehydration and exhaustion. However, she went against medical advice and performed in the city the next night. Last week, multiple sources at the Met Gala in New York told the New York Post that Beyoncé is pregnant.

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
