- Punk icon Henry Rollins is turning 50 and he's celebrating with a new spoken-word tour appropriately titled "50." There will be a handful of shows in New York and L.A. along with one show in D.C. on Feb. 13, the day of his 50th. Ticket details will be announced soon.

- Snoop Dogg wrote a song for Prince William's bachelor party. It's called "Wet" and is said to be "the perfect anthem for Prince William or any playa to get the club smokin." So there.

- Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day will reprise his role of St. Jimmy in the Broadway version of "American Idiot" starting on Jan. 1. The slumping show will likely see a ticket sales boost when Armstrong returns.

- Two interesting things on the Root: A compilation of Miami-inspired songs and a profile of Chicago rapper Nikki Lynette.
