Nicki Minaj
Nicki Minaj has revealed that her three-episode series on E!, Nicki Minaj: My Truth, will premiere on Sunday, November 4 at 10:30 pm. Minaj wrote on Twitter: "We watched the REUP DVD and the 1st episode of the E! series....u guys are going to go crazzzzyyyyy when you see it! NOV19TH DVD, NOV4TH E!" Minaj will offer the album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded - The Re-Up on November 19, which will include five to six new songs.

Carrie Underwood, P!nk and Pitbull have joined the lineup for this year's American Music Awards. Previously announced performers include Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj, Linkin Park and Christina Aguilera, while Rihanna and Minaj lead the nominations with four each. The show will air on ABC live from Los Angeles' Nokia Theatre at 8 p.m. ET/PT on November 18.

The Rolling Stones played another "secret" gig in Paris on Monday night in preparation for their upcoming 50th anniversary concerts. The band tore through 12 songs at the 1,800 capacity venue le Théâtre Mogador, and they posted the set list on their website. It includes "It's Only Rock & Roll," "Tumbling Dice," "Miss You," "Doom & Gloom," and the encore of "Brown Sugar." The 50th anniversary shows will take place on November 25 and 29 at London's O2 arena and on December 13 and 15 at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

The Jonas Brothers have been hard at work on a new album, and now they have announced two concerts at Los Angeles' historic Pantages Theatre. The band will take the stage for two nights on November 27 and 28, which follows the immediate sell-out of the Jonas Brothers' October 11 show at New York's Radio City Music Hall. "We were completely humbled and blown away by the fan response when we announced our New York show," said the band in announcing the dates. "The energy at Radio City was so incredible; we just couldn't wait to do another U.S. show. We are thrilled that we'll be able to share that same excitement in Los Angeles!"

Jimmy Page has revealed that he is working on remastering a number of Led Zeppelin albums that will be released with extra material next year. Page told Mojo magazine that the albums will see the light of day in a series of box set releases, starting in 2013. "There are a number of Led Zeppelin projects that will come out next year because there are different versions of tracks that we have that can be added to the album so there will be box sets of material that will come out, starting next year," he explained. "There will be one box set per album with extra music that will surface."
