Daft Punk is planning a second album with Nile Rodgers. The French duo - Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter - teamed up with the disco legend for three songs on their new album, Random Access Memories, and he is keen for them to collaborate again on his hoard of unreleased material.
"I recently found a treasure trove of old stuff I wrote years ago that's been hidden in a studio vault. It's unreleased material from the late 70s and early 80s, and it has to see the light of day - especially now I've met producers that I trust like Daft Punk. I already know they'd love to work on some of this music. There's some solo stuff, tracks by Johnny Mathis and Fonzi Thornton, the soundtrack to a film called Alphabet City and Chic recording in Stockholm," Nile said.
Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber are recording new music together. The "Can't Be Tamed" singer was spotted leaving a Hollywood recording studio within minutes of Justin, 19, on Thursday and they are believed to be working on a collaboration.
"There aren't that many recording booths at this studio, they must be doing something together. Justin and Miley left within minutes of each other - it's too coincidental. There's gotta be a collaboration in the works," a photographer from X17online.com said.
Miley recently worked with gangster-rapper-turned-reggae artist Snoop Lion on the song "Ashtrays and Heartbreaks." He said, "Miley Cyrus was always a great singer to me and I knew she was a fan so it was great for us to collaborate. It's what she's going through and what I'm going through, she makes great music."
Beyonce has cancelled her concert in Belgium tonight. The "Grown Woman" singer was due to take the stage at the Sportpaleis arena in Antwerp this evening for the latest date on her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, but she has pulled out of the gig citing dehydration and exhaustion.
The 31-year-old star - who began her tour in Serbia last month - will not be able to perform and is under strict doctor's orders to rest, her publicist has confirmed. The concert will be rescheduled and Belgian fans who were eager to see the singer perform will have their tickets honored at a later date.
A second show due to take place at the same venue tomorrow night is now also in doubt, with the publicist stating that Beyonce "is awaiting word from her doctors before making a decision."
Rumors began circulating earlier this week that Beyonce is expecting her second child following her appearance at the Met Ball in New York City last week, where the star's alleged pregnancy was the talk of the night amongst the A-list crowd.
Rihanna slammed long-term rival Ciara for allowing the media to "play her."
The 25-year-old pop star hasn't always seen eye-to-eye with the "Body Party" singer and has taken a swipe at her for always mentioning her in interviews. "Why am I still the main topic of her interviews!! She don't be shame tho? How she let em [the press] play her like that everytime?? It's like, 'yea I know you're here to talk about (insert album title) but we wanna talk about a more relevant topic...Rihanna!!! Like she sits there and falls for it everytime!!!! #whurrisyopublicist (sic)" Rihanna posted on Instagram.
The bitter row between the singers initially began two years ago when Ciara accused the Barbadian babe of not being "the nicest" when they met at a party. Rihanna sarcastically replied," My bad ci, did I 4get to tip u? #howrudeofme.(sic)"
The spat between the pair has fizzled out over the past year but Ciara recently re-started the argument when addressing Rihanna on an episode of Fashion Police saying she was "nuts" for ignoring her.
Apparently, it is possible to capture unflattering photos of Beyonce.
The singer has banned all press photographers - save for her approved personal photographer Frank Micelotta - from taking any photos of her while performing on her latest tour, The Mrs. Carter Show.
The much buzzed-about action comes after unflattering photos of the 31 year-old surfaced online from her performance at this year's Super Bowl (right) - something she has vowed to prevent from occurring in the future with the new photographer ban.
Though she can stop press photographers, who's to say there won't be an audience member snapping up bad photos of her with an iPhone? In a world where photos can be taken and uploaded to the internet in moments, it's quite unrealistic to believe in preventing any unfavorable pictures. Perhaps the best route she can take is to learn how to control her extreme grimacing while performing.
The North American leg of The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour arrives at the end of June.

Kelly Rowland says Destiny's Child could make another album together.
The 32-year-old singer reunited with her former bandmates during Beyonce's half-time Super Bowl show in February and Kelly insists there's a chance they could work together again on new music in the future. When quizzed about the possibility of another record at Elle's Women in Music event in New York on Wednesday night, she said, "It's not a no."
Although the girls haven't ruled out a studio reunion, Kelly insists the trio are content to focus on their own respective solo careers at the moment. Kelly did work with Beyonce and Kelly on separate tracks for her own upcoming solo LP Talk A Good Game and she can't wait for her fans to hear the results.
Richie Sambora didn't quit Bon Jovi's Because We Can tour over money.
Singer Jon Bon Jovi insists the guitarist - who suddenly left the band ahead of a show in Calgary, Canada on April 2 - hasn't fallen out with him over finances, as suggested by some sources. "I think Richie's doing all right, I haven't spoken to him. We were surprised. It was 3:30pm on show day on Tuesday and we got a phone call that he wouldn't be there. It's a personal matter. Don't believe what you read on [website] TMZ because it's the furthest thing from the truth," a source said.
Richie - who has been replaced by Phil X for the remainder of the US leg of the tour - missed some of Bon Jovi's tour dates in 2011 after he checked into rehab for alcohol issues, but sources insist he is currently still sober.
Jon also discussed the band's What About Now album, saying his main inspiration was rock 'n' roll legends The Rolling Stones: "It's a wide array. I just downloaded [David] Bowie's record to listen to that. I just bought a Bruno Mars record before that. Influences? [Tom] Waits. [Leonard] Cohen. They're huge lyrical influences. For rock bands, I look to the Stones, who at least show me where the bar is so you know how far and how high I gotta jump."
Lady Gaga turned down $1 million to appear at the US Republican conference last year.
The "Bad Romance" singer was offered the huge sum to appear at the event in August 2012, and the party even promised $230,000 of the money would go to domestic violence shelter if she agreed to perform.
Other artists to say no to the event included country star Dolly Parton and rapper Pitbull, although they were offered lower fees.
The discoveries were made in a lawsuit filed by the Republican party's fundraising organization, American Action Network against Cater America LLC, who organized entertainment for the event. Gaga, 27, has previously been critical of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, and showed support for current president Barack Obama, when he was elected ahead of his opponent for the Democrat party in November last year.
Justin Timberlake may release a follow-up to The 20/20 Experience later this year.
The "Pusher Love Girl" star released his first album for almost seven years today, but The Roots' drummer Questlove claims the ten track album is the first part of a set and he will release more material before the end of 2013.
"Spoiler alert. 20/20 Vol 2 comes out in nov. (10 songs now . . . 10 songs later= 20 vision). He played me songs out of order and off both records so i don't know what made the final cut (sic)," he wrote on music forum Okayplayer.com.
Justin has yet to confirm whether the musician's claims are true. The singer took time off between his last album FutureSex/Lovesounds in 2006 and The 20/20 Experience to work on his acting career, and says the experience helped him develop the characters in his songs too.
Beyonce has released two new tracks, "Bow Down" and "I Been On." The 31-year-old singer unveiled an audio clip of her first new material since 2011's 4 album on her website yesterday. The track was accompanied by a photo of the singer as a child standing in a room full of trophies.
Lyrics include the lines, "I know when you were little girls you dreamt of being in my world / Don't forget it / Respect that / Bow Down b****es." Elsewhere she sings, "I took my time to live my life but don't think I'm just his little wife / Don't get it twisted this is my sh*t."
The clip takes pieces from two different songs, "Bow Down," which has reportedly been produced by Hit-Boy and "I Been On" which is thought to have been made with Timbaland.
Beyonce's lyrics appear to refer to her absence from the music industry as she has become a mother to daughter Blue Ivy, now 14-months, and her husband, rapper Jay-Z, but her choice of words and apparent attitude have divided opinion. "I'm not sorry that @beyonce is a trend-setter and doesn't sound like everyone else. It's about changing the game #beyhive (sic)" one fan wrote on Twitter.
