I never thought I’d say this, but, Thank You IRS. While Lauryn Hill has downplayed the role her recent tax debt has in her grudged decision to release new music, her fans couldn’t be happier to welcome her return. The angst behind her new song, “Neurotic Society (Compulsory Mix),” is its much-needed fuel.

Countless male football fans were disappointed last month when Faith Hill made the announcement she'd be retiring as the sexy opening number for NBC's "Sunday Night Football."

There are weeks when one can look at new album release lists and wonder who in their right mind would buy any of these? This, however, is not one of those weeks. I don’t know if anyone might’ve guessed ten years ago that contemporary country music would become one of the hottest genres going, but here we are. New releases by Lady Antebellum, the Pistol Annies and the Dixie Chicks’ own Natalie Maines are among this week’s most hotly anticipated albums, and all of them... | More »

As "American Idol's" ratings continue to freefall (Wednesday night, it hit a new series low), and controversial judge Nicki Minaj continues to bear most of the public blame, Nicki sadly isn't doing much to help "Idol's" tarnished tabloid image. On Thursday morning, Her Minajesty took to her very unfiltered Twitter page, and she often does, to reignite her feud with co-star Mariah Carey. It wasn't pretty. Or professional. Nicki was responding to a tweet posted by go... | More »
