After suffering from a blood clot in his throat a few weeks ago, teen singer Austin Mahone's health is improving. "I'm feeling a lot better than I did a week ago," he told Rolling Stone. "Still not feeling 100 percent, but trying to get better." Doctors pointed to lack of rest, proper nutrition and exercise as causes for the ailment, so Mahone is taking precautions for his health as he prepares to hit the road for a series of Jingle Ball radio concerts across the country. "I'm going to make sure I'm not staying up too late," Mahone added. "Rest is important. Eat better and just take care of my voice." Meanwhile, his MTV Artist to Watch Tour is rescheduled for February, and his new single, "Banga! Banga!," is slated for release on Cash Money Records on November 10. Mahone's forthcoming, still-untitled album is due in early 2014.

Sting and Paul Simon are planning to link up for a North American tour, during which they will perform some of their best-known songs individually and as a duo, according to the New York Times. Eighteen dates are scheduled from February 8 through March 16, with additional dates to be announced. "Paul and I both share this abiding curiosity about music and where it's going," Sting told the Times. "We don't really know where this is going. We don't really have a clue how this is going to pan out."
According to a statement posted on fan site True to You, Morrissey has been "discharged from Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles following treatment for concussion, whiplash, and an arm injury." It's not clear how he sustained the injury, but Moz has had a tough year in the health department. He was previously sidelined for severe food poisoning, which caused him to postpone his South American tour, and before that he scrapped most of his North American leg due to a bleeding ulcer, Barrett's esophagus, and double pneumonia. On the bright side, the audiobook version of Morrissey's new Autobiography will be read by British actor David Morrissey of The Walking Dead. The audiobook release is due on December 5.
