Some Jay Z recordings that disappeared more than a decade ago have reportedly turned up, as part of an alleged extortion plot that has come to light.
TMZ reports Chauncey Mahan, a producer who worked with Jay between 1998 and 2002, was in possession of the recordings, which belonged to Jay's Roc-A-Fella Records and went missing in 2002. Mahan allegedly contacted Live Nation, which has a relationship with the rapper, and said he would put the recordings up for auction unless he received a 100-thousand-dollar "storage fee" to relinquish them.
Both sides reportedly agreed on a 75-thousand-dollar amount, but on…
The Voice launched its live round on Monday night, with the 12 remaining artists taking the stage for solo performances. Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Shakira and Usher were there to offer their two cents.
Here's what happened during the two-hour show:
Team Usher's Bria Kelly opened the broadcast with a risky song choice: Adele's "Rolling in the Deep." Adam said it was a tall order to take on that hit, but she brought angst and something different to it. However, both he and Shakira wished Bria sang it in a higher key. Usher said he felt the passion and fire…
Hey, did you hear? Madonna's album is totally done...and a famous photographer has heard it! Except...it's not, and he didn't, and the whole thing is a lie.

This week, Neon Trees is out with their brand-new album Pop Psychology, and lead singer Tyler Glenn is out, period. The singer recently revealed in a much-publicized Rolling Stone article that he is gay. While some of the songs on the album, including the first single "Sleeping with a Friend," directly address Tyler's situation, he said he didn't set out to make an album solely about that.
"As I was writing, I didn't know I was going to come out, you know. It was a process," he tells ABC News Radio. "And for me, it started out as writing a…

Ever since Kelly Clarkson announced she was expecting, glimpses of her baby bump have been rare. But this past weekend, she was out and about with her pregnant belly definitely on display.

Katy Perry doesn't have any children -- at least, right now -- but she's proving to have some great mothering instincts.
Exhibit #1: Katy has posted an Instagram video of herself "reading" the classic children's book Pat the Bunny to her new puppy, Butters. In the video, Katy is seated at a dinner table with Butters on her lap, and she's turning the pages of the board book while Butters pretends to be interested. When she gets to the part where you can scratch 'n sniff the flowers, she holds the book up to Butter's nose; the puppy then turns…
Eminem has announced that he's got some big news for his fans. However, instead of instead of just revealing what he has planned, the rapper has posted a mysterious picture on his Instagram page, in which his face is juxtaposed on a Wild West-era cowboy sitting atop a horse.
"Texas – 'Square Dance' with me! Announcement coming 4/22," Eminem wrote in the accompanying caption. The rapper's lack of detail has caused many of his fans to speculate that he's plotting to headline this fall’s Austin City Limits fest at Zilker Park, taking place early October.
The timing would seemingly align with…
