Miley Cyrus and Flaming Lips are recording a Beatles cover.
The "Adore" hitmaker and the rock band have announced they have teamed up in the studio and are in the process of creating their own version of the 1967 hit "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds."
Frontman Wayne Coyne took to Instagram yesterday to announce the collaboration. He posted a picture of Miley, 21, in the studio, accompanied with the caption, "Miley in the studio vomiting diamonds while singing Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds!! If you're a Beatles and John Lennon freak you gonna love love love this track!! Got Andrew from MGMT too!!!! [sic]."
Wayne, 53, hinted at a possible collaboration last Friday when he posted a picture of Miley rolling a cigarette, but he failed to divulge too much information. "Recording with Miley... High as f**k..." he wrote.
Is Prince William our next big rock star? A video documenting the royal's trio act with Taylor Swift and Bon Jovi (seen after the jump!) performing "Livin' on a Prayer" might convince you if you're actually having a hard time imagining it.
Swift and Bon Jovi were present at the UK's Winter Whites Gala held at Kensington Palace for a fundraiser in aid of the Centerpoint charity. Although Swift performed a song about palaces and princes in a palace with a prince - "Love Story" - folks in attendance were in for a huge surprise when Bon Jovi took the stage, encouraging the British royals' newest father to join him on stage. At first hesitant, Prince William hinted that he'd only agree if Swift would join in - to which she easily obliged (who wouldn't get the opportunity to sing alongside a real-life prince and a living musical legend?).

Robin Thicke is filming a music video with Will Ferrell's Anchorman 2 character Ron Burgundy.
The "Blurred Lines" singer and the legendary star have already recorded a cover of Christopher Cross' 1980 hit "Ride Like The Wind" for the movie's soundtrack. Now sources say they want to make a video to promote the song but are struggling to find the time. "Everyone's on board for a proper music video, but Will's concerned about his schedule," an insider told the New York Post's Page Six.
The insider says he fears Ron Burgundy will be overexposed but would like Robin to join him on one of his upcoming TV appearances to promote the film.
Ariana Grande will release a single each week leading up to Christmas.
Fans of "The Way" singer will be treated to one festive track per week until the December 11 as part of her Christmas Kisses campaign, which includes two original tracks and two popular covers including Wham classic "Last Christmas," which was released today.
Ariana paired up with famed producers Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds and The Rascals - the team behind her debut album Yours Truly - to put a fresh spin on the 1984 hit, with re-written verses. The single has quickly become a trending topic on Twitter, and the brunette beauty took to the social networking-site to share her excitement after it entered at number seven in the US iTunes chart. "#LastChristmas is already in the top ten :D so glad ur enjoying it y'all are so good to me, thank you [sic]," she wrote. "So grateful for your reaction to #lastchristmas can't wait for you to hear what's coming next week....... 1 song down... 3 more to go.''
Lady Gaga has topped the UK charts with her album ARTPOP.
The "Applause" singer scored yet another number one with her latest release, following her previous works The Fame and Born This Way which all took the top spot.
Gaga's success means she has pushed back Eminem's comeback effort Marshall Mather's LP 2 into second place after the album's second single "Monster" featuring Rihanna landed a number one earlier this month. According to the Official Charts Company, the 27-year-old singer also beat off stiff competition from Celine Dion, whose Loved Me Back To Life sits at number three while Little Mix second studio album Salute entered the charts at number four.
Meanwhile, Martin Garrix topped the singles chart with his debut "Animals." The 17 year old Dutch DJ beat out Lily Allen, whose cover of Keane's "Somewhere Only We Know" - featured in John Lewis' Christmas ad - came in at Number Two. The original version of the song also re-entered the chart at Number 29.
With her controversial award show performances and shocking fashions, it's easy to forget that Miley Cyrus can actually sing.
The former Disney star covered Lana Del Rey's "Summertime Sadness" for BBC Radio 1, putting a slight country pop spin to the tune. Although Cyrus sounds great on the track, it would've been nice to hear her stray a little farther from Del Rey's original version of the song. Hopefully Del Rey inspires her new work - it's definitely more interesting to hear her belting out notes like this compared to her current material!

- Although online music service Spotify won't divulge approximate numbers, the company claims that Daft Punk has set the new record with their song "Get Lucky" for the biggest streaming day for a single track - a title previously held by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' "Thrift Shop."
- Perhaps weirdly influenced by her new role as a mother, Beyonce shocked Serbian concert-goers by somewhat-flashing them with a glittery leotard complete with bare faux-boobs.
- Those attending the Americanarama Festival of Music ought to be extra-ecstatic for the concert this summer, as Bob Dylan just signed on to perform on the tour alongside My Morning Jacket and Wilco.

Cyndi Lauper and Adam Lambert are set to record a duet of "Mad World."
The pair previously collaborated on a live version of the Tears for Fears track in aid of Cyndi's charities, and were so pleased with the results they want to cut a studio version. "Adam and Cyndi talked after their performance. They want to record their duet of 'Mad World' at the studio and release it. It's just a project they want to do for fun," a source said.
Beck wants to hear Jack White perform one of the tracks from his Song Reader album. The "Devil's Haircut" musician's latest album is only available as sheet music, as he wants to hear other people's interpretations of his tracks before he releases any recordings of his own, and he's particularly interested to hear Jacks' take on the track "I'm Down."
"Initially, I'm curious to hear what other people do with the songs. I don't want to throw my hat in until later. I sent the songs to Jack White and he was very encouraging. He liked 'I'm Down,'" Beck said.
Bjork will only let certain people cover her songs.
The "Mutual Core" singer chooses artists she thinks will do a fresh take on her tracks to record their own versions.
"I'm in a protected situation. I've already done my version the way I want it to be. I ask people I already like, it's not like I'm asking just anybody. I sometimes compare it to jazz standards. You hear two different versions of 'My Funny Valentine' by Billie Holiday and Miles Davis and neither of them are correct. I like the remix platform. There are invisible rules but a lot of freedom."
