- Country firebrand Miranda Lambert took one more step to superstardom yesterday when she picked up seven nominations to lead the pack for the 46th annual Academy of Country Music Awards. Zac Brown Band, Kenny Chesney and, of course, Taylor Swift also received multiple nominations. The show airs on April 3.

- What are the Woodies? It's an awards show hosted by MTV's 24-hour college network, mtvU, thanks for asking. This awards show is the hip cousin go the VMAs, with a nominees list including Black Keys, LCD Soundsystem, Wiz Khalifa, Robyn and more. The show airs live on March 16, from SXSW in Austin.

- An unlimited supply? Not so much. Recording giant EMI Group Ltd., was purchased by Citigroup yesterday. The corporation now controls the music of everyone from the Beatles to Katy Perry.

It was all a frame - they only did it 'cause of fame. Who? EMI!

(Then again, the Sex Pistols became a commodity a long time ago. Filthy Lucre, indeed.)
