- Teena Marie died on Sunday in her Los Angeles home. The beloved R&B singer was 54 years old. The cause of death has not been reported, but the singer's friend, fellow musician Sheila E, said on Twitter that Marie had a history of seizures.

- Chris Brown's image rehab is complete when he sings a duet with Justin Bieber, right? Expect a new song from these two in early 2011.

- If you're looking for someone to blame for the implosion of the record industry, blame... Duran Duran? Promoting the band's upcoming album, frontman Simon Le Bon says the spoils of the band's ascent were emblematic of the industry's overindulgent past.
