News Ticker: Paula Abdul, Janet Jackson, Sarah McLachlan, Taylor Swift

By |

  • A deal that would have brought Paula Abdul to ABC's revamped version of Star Search has collapsed, according to the Hollywood Reporter, because the former American Idol judge's salary demand was too high.

  • Janet Jackson's new single will be released March 30th, Jermaine Dupri tweeted last night. The track, called "Nothing," appears on the Why Did I Get Married Too soundtrack.

  • Sarah McLachlan's first new studio album in seven years, The Laws of Illusion, will hit stores on June 15th, just weeks before the Canadian singer's Lilith Fair reboot launches its first date.

  • Taylor Swift's six-times-platinum Fearless has become the most awarded country album in history. The 20-year-old star was honored by her label earlier this week, as she scored her 10th consecutive Top 10 Hot Country Song.
