  • Country star Brad Paisley doesn’t want to apologize for his controversial new song “Accidental Racist”. Paisley claims that the collaboration with LL Cool J is meant to “to promote discussion” about “accidentally [making] a statement you’re not meaning to make.” [USA Today]
  • The wait is almost finally over for Fleetwood Mac fans. Lindsey Buckingham announced on Saturday night in a concert in Philadelphia that the band’s new EP featuring all new material will be released “in a few days”. [Rolling Stone]
  • Avril Lavigne may technically be getting older, but judging by these pictures from the set of her music video shoot for “Here’s To Never Growing Up”, it looks like she isn’t into the whole “maturity” thing. Avril is seen posing in a princess dress, fishnets and a wire crown as fiance, Chad Kroeger, watches from a golf cart. [Daily Mail]
  • It seems that Taylor Swift is less stressed about her dating life than her legions of adoring and noisy fans are. She says, “I have no idea if I’m going to get married or be single forever or have a family or just be on my own,” and seems to be cool with how “very complex” that is. [MTV News]
