Apparently Ne-Yo has so much money you can pinch millions from him without him realising. Also heading to court was someone who helped out a Pink tribute act and got nothing but grief for her efforts.

Jonathan Ross returned to Radio 2; the Mail returned to Sachsgate like a dog to its own vomit.

Kanye West is the smartest man in the world, but doesn't like it when people quote his lyrics back at him. Beyonce tried to explain the elevator fight by pointing out how rich everyone involved was.

The homes of John Denver and Michael Jackson went on the market. They should get Papa Roach to help sell it.

"No photos" cried Kate Bush but everyone loved her anyway.

Design a shawl for Stevie Nicks. That was an actual thing.

The Co-Op tried to promote unsigned artists. Their customers were unimpressed. Elsewhere, a Canadian radio station decided its listeners lacked the stamina for full songs.

NME sales slid, again, as they usually do.

Jessie J went off to crack America. No news as yet. The Dominican Republic was even less welcoming to Miley Cyrus.

Turned out Hop Farm Fest wasn't properly licenced.

Who will speak up for the pigs? Shirley Manson will speak up for the pigs. And Justn Bieber can frighten off bears. But could Kate Moss frighten Justin Bieber?
