Arrests, new records, etc.

20 Aug

Run-ins with the police, new music, new books….the entertainment world is abuzz this morning.

  • Let’s get the cops out of the way: Uncle Kracker was arrested this weekend, as was Pete Doherty (but the last one really isn’t a surprise).
  • It almost feels like seeing your ex out with somebody new (but kind of in a good way): J.K. Rowling is working on a new book.
  • Hasn’t Garth Brooks released several greatest hits albums already? Either way, he’s got a new one coming.
  • Just as I was beginning to think that Jordin Sparks had already fallen off the face of the planet, here’s some news on her. She’s signed with Jive and will release her debut album in November. Her first single, “Tattoo,” hits radio at the end of August.
  • Of course, Bruce Springsteen has a new album coming out too. Rolling Stone has the dish on it.
  • Update on the next Dashboard Confessional record: “The Shade of Poison Trees” drops Oct. 2 and will be a lot more acoustic.

And in case you haven’t heard, Shawn Klush won the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist competition in Memphis this past weekend.
