The 24 year old diva was released less than two weeks ago with a caution after accusations of assault. The police are currently declining to give further details.

The Journey Ends For Jason Castro

The dreadlocked singer, Jason Castro, from American Idol has been eliminated as predicted. The show is now left with only 3 singers, Syesha, David Cook and David Archuleta. In my opinion it's still a David Vs. David finale but I'd like to see Syesha go further.

The world was happy when 'self-confessed retiree' and legend Rock Hall of Famer Tina Turner took to the stage with Beyonce for the Grammy Awards in February. Most speculated it would be one of her last public performances ever. 

But it turns out that the "Tiny Dancer" singer plans to embark on her first tour in eight years starting early October at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Mo.

After completing three dozen shows in North America 'the Queen' is expected to continue to Europe and possibly international shows she announced on a Thursday taping of 'The Oprah Winfrey Show'.

Winehouse's 'Bond Theme' Shelved

UK soul singer Amy Winehouse's work on a possible James Bond theme song has been abandoned due to the singer 'not being ready to make music' says long-time collaborator and UK producer Mark Ronson.

Although Winehouse's spokesman said the decision was taken because she has "other ideas" about how the song should be developed. 

It's a great shame that this hasn't come to anything I think a Winehouse track on the latest Bond flick would have work wonders for the film franchise and for the troubled singer.
