Speak Now Certified Triple Platinum

There is still a market out there for albums. Just ask Taylor Swift. First her album Speak Now roared into stores in late October 2010 and sold more copies in one week than any album in the last five years. Now, after just seven weeks of release, the collection has been certified triple platinum by the RIAA for shipment of over three million copies. Now all three of Taylor Swift's studio albums have gone triple platinum or beyond. Her self-titled debut is sitting on a quadruple platinum certification, and Fearless is leading with six times platinum certification. In addition, the single "Love Story" has sold over five million copies. Taylor Swift is now in a horse race for top selling album of the year with the also triple platinum certified Need You Now by Lady Antebellum.

Panic! At The Disco Announce 3rd Album

While in Germany recently to perform at the Telekom Extreme Playgrounds, Panic! At The Disco confirmed the titles of their next album and forthcoming new single in an interview with Disordered Kitten.

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..."

Katy Perry: Call Me Mrs. Brand!

Katy Perry chats with Ellen DeGeneres while making an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, which airs on Wednesday (December 8).

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!”

Black Eyed Peas Earn Third Top 10 Debut

The Black Eyed Peas return to the top 10 on the albums chart with the follow-up to their multi-platinum release The E.N.D., but their labelmate Soulja Boy didn’t fare as well in this week’s sales., Fergie,, 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.

One Night

Avril's Album to Be Out March 8th + Artwork

Two years in the making, singer-songwriter Avril Lavigne's fourth studio album, Goodbye Lullaby, will be released by RCA Records on March 8, 2011. Lavigne will debut the first single "What the Hell" on New Year's Eve during "Dick Clark's Rockin' New Year's Eve."

Lavigne worked with longtime collaborators Deryck Whibley, Evan Taubenfeld and Butch Walker, as well as songwriter/producer Max Martin. Lavigne continues to share her personal experiences through her writing and music, and Goodbye Lullaby is a further evolution of this, propelled by a more raw and organic sound.

Among its upbeat tracks are "What the Hell," an unabashed embrace of fun and freedom, and "Stop Standing There," fueled by an early-‘50s girl-group feel. The album runs the gamut of emotions: Lavigne expresses her gratitude for special people in her life in the rocker "Smile," explores the dynamics of a relationship in "Push," shows her vulnerable side in "Wish You Were Here," and finds the strength to close one chapter of her life and move on to the next in the title track "Goodbye."

Ke$ha Hits The Desert For 'Your Love Is My Drug' Video

Ke$ha is gearing up to tour with Rihanna this summer, but not before taking time out to shoot the third video from her Animal album, "Your Love Is My Drug." The clip was filmed on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week and features Ke$ha hanging out in the California desert.

The video reportedly "follows Ke$ha on a fun journey through an animated world" and was shot in Lancaster, California. In it, Ke$ha is seen dancing and performing near sand dunes while wearing a khaki-colored bathing suit; she's also seen wrapped in what appears to be a fishing net.

While she was all by her lonesome during the sunset scenes, once the sun went down, she filmed a kissing scene with an unidentified guy next to a campfire. Later on, Ke$ha performed — under black lights while wearing body paint — near some giant rock boulders. The video follows up Ke$ha's other clips for her hits "Tik Tok" and "Blah Blah Blah."

Ke$ha actually worked with her mom, Pebe Sebert, on several Animal tracks, including "Your Love Is My Drug." She's previously described the track as one that delves into the sordid details of her love life. "I wrote a few songs with my mom, who's a sick writer, and taught me everything I know about songwriting," she said.

"My mom and I are best friends, so it really comes naturally. She taught me how to write my first song. I can also be really honest with her. We're like best friends and there are no really forbidden topics."

Lady GaGa 'Denies New Single Axed'

"Lady GaGa has dismissed rumours that new single 'Alejandro' has been scrapped in the US after poor feedback from radio station bosses.

The singer was alleged to have become embroiled in a row with her record label over the upcoming release. She wanted to issue the track ahead of the company's preferred song 'Dance In The Dark', Contactmusic reports.

The speculation was sparked following news that 'Alejandro' struggled to make an impact in other territories - entering the Canadian charts at number 78 and in Australia at number 49 - since its release earlier this month.

However, GaGa has now taken to Twitter to reassure fans that the track will be released, posting: "Alejandro is on the radio. F**k it sounds so good, we did it little monsters."

'Alejandro', the follow-up to her huge hit 'Telephone' with Beyoncé, is due out in the US on April 20."

Michelle McGee Attacks Chelsea Handler

Jesse James' alleged mistress Michelle McGee is slamming E! talk show host Chelsea Handler for making fun of her.

On her E! blog, Handler, 35, wrote: "Jesse James' first alleged mistress, Michelle McGee, is being supported emotionally by her father. In a recent interview, Denny McGee said that Michelle really believed that Sandra and Jesse were separated and was 'shocked' to see them together at the Oscars. I guess she doesn't read magazines, which makes sense since she basically has one on her face."

McGee, 32, didn't find the tattoo remark funny.

On her Facebook page, she criticized Handler's appearance, advising her to "use some of that botox from your forehead and put it in your flabby underarm skin..Ive seen better wings in a bucket of KFC chicken." A short time later, she added she felt "so honored to have a transexual [SIC] poke fun of me..."

Justin Bieber Makes Billboard History!

"Justin Bieber debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart with "My World 2.0," after shifting 283,000 copies in its first week. It's the teenager's second album and first No. 1. His first set, "My World," debuted at No. 6 upon its release last November. This week it rises to a new peak, scooting from No. 10 to No. 5 with 50,000 (up 50%).

At 16-years old, Bieber is the youngest solo male artist to reach No. 1 on the Billboard 200 since Aug. 24, 1963, when the then-13-year old Stevie Wonder spent one week at No. 1 with "Little Stevie Wonder/The 12 Year Old Genius." (Wonder recorded the album when he was 12, but released it after turning 13.) "My World 2.0's" opening frame is also Bieber's best sales week, surpassing his previous high, when the first "My World" sold 157,000 copies over Christmas week of 2009.

Thus, with albums at Nos. 1 and 5, Bieber is the first act to concurrently chart two albums within the top five of the Billboard 200 since the chart dated Oct. 9, 2004. That's when Nelly ranked at Nos. 2 and 4 with "Suit" and "Sweat," respectively. Nelly had bowed the simultaneously-released albums at Nos. 1 and 2 on the previous week's chart. "
