Was Rihanna Pregnant?
Hecklerspray reports: The Chris Brown/ Rihanna saga is like a soap - a really bad soap about the most inexplicable pregnancy ever.

Oh yeah, you heard. Rihanna was pregnant. Or Rihanna is pregnant. Or Rihanna wasn't ever pregnant at all. But definitely one of those three. Unless there's a fourth option that we haven't accounted for, like it was Chris Brown who was pregnant. We don't know, we're not obstetricians.

But anyway, some reports are suggesting that Rihanna was pregnant with Chris Brown's baby when he allegedly attacked her this month. Goodness, Chris Brown and Rihanna really want be on Maury, don't they.

Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix Coming In May
PR reports: Paris, France's Phoenix are set to release their eagerly-anticipated new album, Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, on May 26th, 2009. Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix is the follow-up to 2006's critically acclaimed It's Never Been Like That, and a release between Glassnote Records and the band's own newly-formed imprint Loyaute.

Born out of restlessness and a steady hunt for inspiration, Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix is a career-defining album, filled with the band's signature melding of synthetics and organics, sharp, danceable rhythms, infectious choruses with a considerable dose of aural panache, and candy-colored pop sensibilities. These songs are some of their most exuberantly playful, yet also some of the most complex they've recorded, more layered and intensely propulsive than previous efforts. Indeed, Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix is nothing short of elative, creating what is sure to be the soundtrack to late-night summer adventures all over the globe. Staying true to what makes Phoenix so special, a sense of whimsical breeziness envelopes these songs, as if they've sprung fully-formed from the band's collective creative hands in a state of utter pop perfection.

Tiny Masters Of Today Announce Album and SXSW Plans
PR reports: Brooklyn, New York's Tiny Masters Of Today announce details of their new album, "Skeletons," out on Mute June 16, 2009 and a show at SXSW on Saturday March 21, 2009.

The Brooklyn, NY teen punk sensations have finished up 11 new songs and will be debuting them live at SXSW in Austin, Texas. The core unit of siblings Ivan and Ada (ages 15 and 12 respectively) is joined by drummer Jackson Pollis. The SXSW show will be their first live performance following a six-month hiatus.

It has certainly been an action packed journey for Tiny Masters Of Today. Almost overnight, the band went from a few homemade recordings on a MySpace page to collaborating with Karen O and Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Kimya Dawson, Fred Schneider (B-52s) and Gibby Haynes (Butthole Surfers), being remixed by CSS and Liars, and touring the world. David Bowie even lauded their first homemade single as "Genius." Not bad for a band that double as full-time students in the New York Public School System. - more on this story

UK Tabloid Rumors Has It That Lily Allen and Lindsey Lohan Plan CD
antiMusic reports: Lily Allen and tabloid darling and part time actress Lindsey Lohan may be heading to the studio together if you believe UK tabloid reports based on unnamed sources.

Angry Ape's report (based on a report from The Sun) says, "The two friends, who recently got matching tattoos, are said to be in talks about collaborating on a new album whilst holidaying in the Bahamas."

"They've discussed making a record together, possibly at a pre-arranged studio, while they're away on holiday," a source told The Sun. Who is the source? A source that knows them or works for one of them? Was it the editor of the tabloid or another writer? They could make up anything that way and claim a source told them. That would work with a random person on the street as well. If you actually give a damn, you can read more from this source - at Angry Ape
