Quick Hits: Shakira, Ke$ha, The Wanted, Tool, Trent Reznor
January 22, 2014

Shakira has decided that her new album, slated for a March 25 release, will be self-titled. In a post on Facebook, the singer explained that the title makes sense because the album basically shows off all the different aspects of herself. "When the time came to put a name to this album, I realized that itís not exactly a thematic album, though love is and always has been one of my main subjects and sources for inspiration. Itís also not necessarily conceptual, as some of my albums have been in the past," she wrote. "In the end, what I realized is that throughout the course of creating this body of work, I learned a lot about myself. Though I didn't realize it at the time, all the directions I began exploring in the initial phases of recording were helping to pave a path for me of rediscovery. I realized that I will always be a little bit of everything and I donít have to choose. I am sometimes extremely sensitive, sometimes upbeat, others dreamy and romantic, and even at times a little melodramatic. But always authentic and always sincere. Most importantly, I am enough. Imperfections and all. So what I am offering you now is just that. Shakira. Nothing more. A little bit of rock, a little bit of folk, a little reggae and naturally some dance--but as always, and above all, a lot of heart."


Ke$ha
Ke$ha checked into rehab earlier this month to treat an eating disorder, and her stay at the Chicago facility does not allow access to social media. However, she did ask a friend to use her Twitter account to pass along a message to fans. "she says 'THANK YOU. SOOO MUCH. I'm overwhelmed to tears by all of the love, letters, and support!! I'll be back soon and better than ever,'" the tweet reads. "ohhh and she can't believe 'Timber' is still number one! PARTY ON!!!!" In a statement to MTV News earlier this month, Ke$ha wrote: "I'm a crusader for being yourself and loving yourself, but I've found it hard to practice. I'll be unavailable for the next 30 days, seeking treatment for my eating disorder... to learn to love myself again, exactly as I am."

British boy band The Wanted has released a new video and single, "Glow In The Dark," from their latest album, Word of Mouth. However, they also announced that they will go on hiatus following the upcoming Word of Mouth tour. "This tour will be their last for a while as Tom, Max, Jay, Siva and Nathan have collectively decided to take time to pursue personal endeavours following the tour's conclusion," reads a message posted on the group's website. "The band wants to stress to their fans that they will continue on as The Wanted and look forward to many successful projects together in the future. They thank their fans for their continued love and support and look forward to seeing them on tour."

Tool is set to play some shows in North America for the first time since 2012. The band has listed seven dates on its website, which begin on March 4 in Spokane, WA. So far, the dates include five shows in the U.S. and two shows in Mexico. There is still no word on a new Tool album (which would be its first since 2006's 10,000 Days), and it's unclear if there will be more shows added to the tour.

After working together on the musical score for The Social Network and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross will team up again for another movie. "Atticus and I are scoring David Fincher's upcoming Gone Girl," Reznor wrote on Twitter. The film, which is set to star Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike, is based on the 2012 novel of the same. It's due in theaters in October 2014.
