Courtney Love to pay $430,000 for defamatory tweet; Britney's new single leaks; Pitchfork festival announces initial lineup
- Maybe Courtney Love will be a little more careful about what she says on Twitter after settling a lawsuit and agreeing to pay $430,000 to fashion designer Dawn Simorangkir for a series of defamatory tweets. Ha, we said "Courtney Love" and "be a little more careful" in the same sentence. Good one, us!
- The new Britney Spears single hit the Internet Thursday. "Till the World Ends" was written by Ke$ha and produced by Dr. Luke. That combo worked in 2010 -- does it still make magic in 2011?
- Pitchfork has announced the first slate of bands scheduled to perform at its annual festival, taking place this year July 15-17 in Chicago's Union Park. D.C.'s Dismemberment Plan keep their reunion going with yet another high-profile gig; other big names include Animal Collective, Fleet Foxes, TV on the Radio, Odd Future, Cut Copy, Destroyer and more.
