Morning click: Ticketmaster will issue refunds for Springsteen ticket debacle; Avril Lavigne's "Alice" video

- Ticketmaster has agreed to distribute refunds to thousands of Bruce Springsteen fans who purchased marked-up tickets through the Ticketmaster-owned website TicketsNow.com. Last year, Springsteen spoke out against the ticket retailer's seemingly unfair business practices, which roped customers into paying triple or quadruple face value for tickets to 14 of his gigs. Live Nation Entertainment Inc., which owns the ticket seller, has not admitted to any wrongdoing.

- Avril Lavigne has released a new music video for her song "Alice," which will appear on the soundtrack to Tim Burton's upcoming film "Alice in Wonderland." The video portrays a scarcely matured Lavigne-- as Alice, of course-- ensconced in a world of freaky Tim Burton-y characters. The song is about... actually, what is it about? Something like how she's Alice... because she fell down... into Wonderland... and she was forced to unconvincingly play a product-placed Yamaha piano... and wound up at a gothic tea party with a Johnny Depp body double... or something along those lines.
