Panic! At The Disco's third album will be entitled 'Vices & Virtues' - "all the songs really relate to that title, all of them have to do with an inner battle" - and is expected to be released on March 8th, 2011. The first single is (tentatively) called 'Mona Lisa' and is expected to be released in late January next year.
Of the upcoming single, frontman Brendon Urie said: "Mona Lisa is a metaphor for the story that takes place in the song. It seems like it's about a guy and a girl but really it's more about a fight inside yourself. It's a schizophrenic kinda thing where you don't have to rely on people..."
Ellen asked Katy if she has anybody calling her Mrs. Brand after marrying Russell Brand last October.
Katy said “I do actually. Sometimes when people try to get my attention. Like if I’m at an event or something like that and they want special attention. They go, “Mrs. Brand!” and I go shwoosh [looks back].”
Helen Mirren, who stars with Russell in both The Tempest and next year’s Arthur, also makes an appearance on the same show as Katy.
When Ellen told Katy that the 65-year-old actress has a crush on Russell, Katy joked “Yeah, she needs to step off my man!”

Will.i.am, Fergie, apl.de.ap, and Taboo’s sixth album The Beginning comes in at No. 6 on the Billboard 200 with 119,000 copies sold in its opening week. In comparison, The E.N.D. topped the charts with 304,000 in the summer of 2009. The group earns their third top 10 entry based on the success of the Dirty Dancing-sampled single “The Time (Dirty Bit),” which peaked at No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100.
The Peas can blame Susan Boyle, who bumps Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy from the top of the chart down to No. 7 with 108,000. Nicki Minaj’s debut Pink Friday drops six spots to No. 8 with 103,000.
R&B powerhouse Jazmine Sullivan blows in at No. 17 with 57,000 units sold of her sophomore set Love Me Back. Fellow songbird Chrisette Michele finds her third LP Let Freedom Reign entering at No. 25 with 42,000 units.
Meanwhile, Soulja Boy finds his third album The DeAndre Way with meek first-week sales. The “Speakers Going Hammer” rapper only managed to sell 13,000 copies of the disc, putting him way down the chart at No. 79. Comparatively, his 2008 album iSouljaBoyTellem debuted at No. 43 with 45,500 copies sold.
