Rod Stewart has signed a deal with Random House to pen a tell-all memoir due out next year. Stewart says that he intends to "hold nothing back" in the book, and will be rather explicit in writing about his prolific love life. "Forget skeletons in the closet; this one's going to be socks and knickers under the bed," the singer said in a statement.

In addition to opening up about his string of romances with various blonde bombshells, Stewart's book is likely to touch on the various phases of his long-running career in rock, his battle with thyroid cancer and his youth in North London.

Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
