New Strokes album done; Dr. Dre's returns with "Kush"; Susan Boyle knocks off Taylor Swift
- According to frontman Julian Casablancas, the fourth album by the Strokes is completed and will be released in 2011. It's the band's first since 2006's "First Impressions of Earth" and let's hope it's better.
- A five year wait for an album is nothing compared to the decade-plus wait Dr. Dre has put us through. The long, long anticipated "Detox" seems to be on the horizon and the first single, "Kush," is streaming on Dre's Web site.
- It was a short stay at the top of the Billboard charts for Taylor Swift, who was knocked to No. 2 by Susan Boyle. Her holiday album "The Gift" sold 318,000 copies in its first week, more than 100,000 better than Swift's "Speak Now."
- Punk rock icon Patti Smith can add National Book Award-winner to her impressive list of accomplishments. She took home the 2010 prize in the nonfiction category for her memoir "Just Kids."
