    In a given week, if I select the most noteworthy new releases for this blog--albums that either will sell the most (few) or are exceptionally interesting (fewer)—I’m not above pretending Celtic Thunder is Celtic Frost, that Josh Groban has devoted an entire album to the works of Pink Floyd, or that any artist named Dog Bite deserves a review simply because of his wonderful name! Rare are the times I actually care about all 10 albums! No need to worry, though. As long as Lil Wayn...  | More »

    March 25, 2013 5:30 PM ET | Yahoo Reality Rocks

    Jessica Sanchez is a petite girl who's about to have a very big 2013.

Snoop Lion raps, “We don’t want to see no more innocent blood shed. Me don’...  | More »

    additional reporting by Tiffany Lee "American Idol" has held songwriting competitions before--the Season 6 and 7 coronation singles were penned by contest winners, and two years ago, the show launched the "Coca-Cola Perfect Harmony" program, which enlists fans to help pen a new, original tune to be performed by a pop star on each "Idol" finale.

  • Shooter Jennings Talks Why ‘Outlaw’ Is ‘Worn Out’, New Album, New Film

    Shooter Jennings may be known for his status spearheading all things outsider in the music world--the son of outlaw legends Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter, he champions artists that don't fit in traditional molds, shuns the Nashville machine in favor of Los Angeles, and generally operates on his own wavelength without variation. It could be forgiven that one might assume he's somewhat prickly--or at least unpredictable--in person. However, nothing could be further than the truth....  | More »
