Lou Reed and Susan Boyle a perfect match; Marilyn Manson goes indie

By David Malitz

- While a Lou Reed/Susan Boyle beef may be a wonderful thing to dream about, it's simply not reality. When "Britain's Got Talent" breakout star was not allowed to perform Reed's "Perfect Day" a few months ago it was due to a publishing mistake, not Reed being a curmudgeon. And just to clear things up, the Velvet Underground legend has directed the video for Boyle's version of the song. Watch above.

- Marilyn Manson is back, and this time he's indie. The '90s shock rocker signed a deal with U.K. label Cooking Vinyl for his next album.

- It was inevitable -- indie stoner lovebirds Wavves and Best Coast will tour together next year.

All's well that ends well, I guess. The video is beautiful and Boyle is in top form; she seems more confident now as a performer and more comfortable in her own skin. That voice and the Scottish landscape with the wind and dark clouds; stunning.
