- The ailing Aretha Franklin -- who had major surgery just last week-- has pancreatic cancer, according to the Detroit News. Citing a "source familiar with the situation," the News report says the disease is what prompted Franklin to take six months off; the Queen of Soul's publicist, however, has not yet confirmed that information.

- Susan Boyle continued her Billboard charts domination, returning to the top of the charts with "The Gift," apparently coming to a great aunt's stocking near you. Black Eyed Peas posted disappointing first-week numbers for "The E.N.D.," coming in at No. 6 on the charts. Kanye West dropped to No. 7 in his second week while Nicki Minaj fell to No. 8.

- The all-time leader in Latin Grammy awards, Juanes, will visit the Patriot Center on his P.A.R.C.E. 2011 tour. The show will be on Sunday, April 10, with tickets going on sale Friday.
