Will.i.am is recording new tracks for his solo album to replace those leaked online.
The Black Eyed Peas singer was so angry tracks from solo album #willpower leaked, he is writing new ones to replace them. This means the release date has been delayed from the original September 24, so he can go back into the studio.
Urging fans to help him find the culprit who shared the songs, he Tweeted, "I'm trying to finish #willpower...& now because of all the leaks I have push the album back to make new songs...I will give you updates soon. If you know anyone that knows the people responsible #stopthem (sic)"
The tracks were leaked shortly after the singer's car was stolen last month during a launch party for the album. An anonymous man later claimed to have stolen the car and posted a video online threatening to leak the album. In the video the anonymous man rummages through a bag, saying, "Now what's inside, let's take a peak, gadgets, gadgets, songs to leak. I'll leak them here, I'll leak them there - I will leak them everywhere."
Kesha has hinted her new single could feature Rihanna.
The "We R Who We R" hitmaker posted a video teaser for her track "Die Young," which features a waffle house waitress holding a piece of paper with an "R" written on it, which looks much like Rihanna's logo. A caption then flashes on screen which reads, "What's it all mean??? (sic)"
Also in the video, Kesha sings the song's chorus to a group of confused commuters on the Tokyo metro. Another caption reads, "Getting closer. get hyped. eternal boners (sic)."
Kesha - famed for her songs about getting drunk and partying - has previously said she plans to show her "vulnerable" side on her second, as-yet-untitled, album.
Kanye West raps about Kim Kardashian's sex tape in his new song.
The "Stronger" rapper - who has been dating the reality TV star for around five months - appears to make reference to Kim's infamous 2007 tape in latest track "Clique." The song - which was leaked to gossip website TMZ.com and will be featured on his album Cruel Summer - includes the line, "Eat breakfast at Gucci. My girl a superstar all from a home movie."
The sex tape stars Kim and her Kardashian and ex-boyfriend Ray J, and after it was leaked online, the 31-year-old socialite became a huge star. While he is singing about the sex tape, it was recently claimed Kanye - who has known Kim for four years - had refused to watch it.
"For all his bad-boy image, he's quite old-fashioned and [while they were still just friends] he thought it inappropriate to view Kim's tape. Now that they are a couple, there's no way Kanye's ever going to look at it," a source said.
A 31-year-old man Spanish man has been arrested over the leak of a new Madonna track. The suspect, identified only by the initials J.M.R., was arrested in the city of Zaragoza in northern Spain yesterday then subsequently charged and released, according to a police statement.
The leaked song, "Gimme All Your Love," surfaced online in November, greatly upsetting the singer and her team, with manager Guy Oseary urging fans to help track down the person responsible. He tweeted at the time, "Madonna told me this morning 'my true fans wouldn't do this'- whoever is responsible for this leak, we ask that you please stop (sic)! I'm very happy with the positive reaction to the demo, but we are very upset with whoever leaked the song!!!!!!!! (sic) We are asking that the fans please help us police any more leaks. We have a lot in store for you, but please respect the process (sic)."
Lawyers working for Madonna traced the leaked track to Spain and police said they found recordings of the song in a search of the suspect's belongings.

The Catholic League has already taken offense to the song, but that was even before the single leaked onto the Internet. The content of the song itself -- not to mention the title -- won Gaga a heated response. In a statement, League president Bill Donohue said “this is a stunt,” and “Lady Gaga tries to continue to shock Catholics and Christians in general.”
Take a listen to the video and decide for yourself -- sinfully good, or just plain sinful?
