January 13, 2014


Bruno Mars
Red Hot Chili Peppers will join Bruno Mars as a special guest during his performance at the Super Bowl XLVIII Halftime Show on Fox in MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ on Sunday, February 2. The announcement of the pairing was made on January 11 during Fox's broadcast of the NFC Divisional Playoff game between the New Orleans Saints and Seattle Seahawks. Just last week, a number of concerts were announced surrounding this year's Super Bowl. VH1 will hold six different shows in the New York City area, branded as the "VH1 Super Bowl Blitz." J. Cole, Janelle Monae, Fall Out Boy, TLC, Goo Goo Dolls and Gavin DeGraw all will headline a different venue each night, from January 27 to February 1, and air on VH1 as well. Billboard also reported that Prince will make a cameo appearance on the sitcom New Girl in an episode that will air directly after the big game.

After Outkast announced that they will play this year's Coachella and Governor's Ball festivals, the duo has revealed that their reunion will actually include 40 shows. Their Facebook page says that Outkast will return to the stage "with a full festival run of over 40 dates" to celebrate the 20-year anniversary of their debut album, Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik. "Returning to the stage together is the most exciting way for us to thank everyone for their 20 years of supporting Outkast," said Andre 3000. Big Boi added, "I'm looking forward to rocking the stage with my Bro Ski and to all the fans - stank you smelly much, this is for y'all!"

More than 15 years after announcing her retirement from Fleetwood Mac, Christine
McVie is apparently back in the band. According to the fan site Fleetwood Mac News, Mick Fleetwod announced the news during a concert in Maui on Saturday night. "This is the worst kept secret there is, but Christine McVie will be rejoining Fleetwood Mac," he reportedly told the audience. McVie did reunite with her former bandmates at a Fleetwood Mac concert in London in September 2013, but aside from that, she has been largely under the radar in recent years.

Five months after releasing her debut album, Yours Truly, Ariana Grande is already working on her sophomore effort. "Back in the studio this week," she tweeted on Sunday night. Details about her new album are scarce, but back in October, Grande tweeted that she was once again working with producer Harmony Samuels, who helped craft her hit song "The Way."
