Eminem
After releasing several hit singles together, it's time for Eminem and Rihanna to play some shows together as well. The pair have announced three concerts in New York, Detroit and Los Angeles that will take place in August as part of The Monster Tour. However, specific dates, venues and ticketing information have not yet been announced, and it's unclear whether more shows will be added. Eminem and Rihanna first teamed up on the 2010 smash "Love the Way You Lie" before reuniting for their current hit, "The Monster."

Panic! At The Disco has announced their next trek, dubbed The Gospel Tour. The band will take their live show on the road starting July 18 in Magna, UT through August 28 in San Jose, CA. Special guests Walk The Moon will perform on all dates during The Gospel Tour, while Youngblood Hawke and Magic Man will join Panic! on select dates.

Soundgarden is celebrating the 20th anniversary of Superunknown with a special reissue in two deluxe versions that will come out on June 3. The first Deluxe Edition is a two-CD package featuring the remastered album along with demos, rehearsals, B-sides and more. The Super Deluxe Edition is a five-CD package featuring the remastered album, additional demos, rehearsals and B-sides and a fifth disc of the album mixed in Blu-ray Surround Sound. The Super Deluxe Edition will come packaged in a hardbound book with a lenticular cover, liner notes by David Fricke and newly reimagined album artwork designed by Josh Graham. In addition, the Superunknown singles and associated b-sides with newly interpreted artwork sleeves will be reissued for Record Store Day, on April 19, as a set of five limited edition vinyl records.

In honor of Record Store Day on April 19, Bruce Springsteen will release a four-song EP entitled American Beauty. Three of the tracks – "American Beauty," "Mary Mary," and "Hey Blue Eyes" – are from the same sessions as Springsteen's latest LP, High Hopes. The fourth track is called "Hurry Up Sundown."

Christina Aguilera reportedly is pregnant with her second child. The singer is said to be expecting with her fiancé, Matt Rutler, according to Us Weekly. Aguilera also has a six-year-old son, Max, from her first marriage to music executive Jordan Bratman.

KISS

KISS announced that the band won't be performing at their induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in April due to disputes between old and new band members. Former drummer Peter Criss wrote on his website: "It's disappointing to have to say to you, the fans, that Ace [Frehley] and I have been denied a performance with Gene [Simmons] and Paul [Stanley] for our Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction... This is disgraceful and I feel bad for the fans who were looking forward to the four of us being inducted together." However, Simmons and Stanley tell a different story in a statement on the KISS website, which reads: "Our intention was to celebrate the entire history of KISS and give credit to all members including long time present members Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer, and additionally Bruce Kulick and Eric Carr all who have made this band what it is... Although KISS has moved forward far longer without them, Ace and Peter are at the very foundation of what we have built and this would all be impossible had they not been a part of it in the beginning. Contrary to claims made through the media we have never refused to play with Ace and Peter. This is understandably an emotional situation where there is no way to please everyone. To bring this to a quick end, we have decided not to play in any lineup and we will focus our attention on celebrating our induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame."

Jennifer Lopez is turning her attention back to acting as she will be the star of a new detective series called Shades of Blue, that will air on NBC in 2015, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Lopez will play Harlee McCord, a dirty cop working undercover for the FBI's anti-corruption task force. Her character also a single mom conflicted by her assignment to expose the corruption of the colleagues who have been helping raise her child.
