- Rock-and-roll founding father Chuck Berry fell ill at a Chicago concert on Saturday night. The 84-year-old singer of iconic songs such as "Johnny B. Goode" and "Maybelline" was checked out by an ambulance during the show but was apparently simply suffering from exhaustion.

- R&B star Jazmine Sullivan announced on Twitter Sunday night that she would be taking a break from all things music-related. "I’m making an official announce that I am taking a break from music. I’m trying to figure out who I am…w/o a mike, paper or pen," she tweeted. Those statements have since been deleted from her page, though.

- Are you ready for Kim Kardashian pop music star? Too bad! With an assist from writer/producer The-Dream, Kardashian debuted her single "Turn It Up" on New Year's Eve.

- If that's not doing it for you, there's always the new M.I.A. mixtape.
