STAR Artist Jason Mraz will have a busy fall. Next month, to coincide with his North American Tour he’ll release a photography book called A Thousand Things and then he’ll re-release a deluxe edition of his current album “We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things” which will include 2 CDs and a DVD with a 30 minute documentary, different versions of his songs and a one hour live concert from New York City.

According to Travis Barker's friend Jermaine Dupri, STAR Artist Blink 182's Travis Barker is "doing good, he's gonna be all right. He's just got a lot of healing to do." Travis is recovering from a fatal airplane crash that took the lives of 4 and critically injured Travis and his friend DJ AM.

It’ll be called “Dark Horse”, in stores November 18th and starting Monday at 5 a.m. you’ll be able to download the first single “Gotta Be Somebody” for free from Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger did tell me this album is more of an “adult affair” saying, "There's a lot of truly filthy subject matter and adult themes."

Hugh Heffner thinks Vice President wanna-be Sarah Palin is qualified to hold a position – maybe not the one she had in mind but a bunch of famous women have held the position in the past. Okay yes I’m talking about a Playboy centerfold. “I don't know what it is, but there's something about a really sexy-looking woman wearing glasses. Imagine what she's like when the glasses come off!” I will say this, in this situation, Palin is a much better choice than Biden...

Ellen DeGeneres feels so strongly about breast cancer awareness, she's spreading the word with a series of customized phone messages. She’s been asked by vitamin producer One A Day to join their campaign, dubbed the One A Day Women's Wake-Up Call, as part of October's national Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The messages, which can be delivered through an online request, emphasize the importance of maintaining checkups for the disease. “Hi, this is Ellen DeGeneres and your sister told me to remind you that it's Breast Cancer Awareness Month.”
