Back to the day job: Keith Urban announces new album as he waits on word from ‘American Idol’ – Keith Urban is no different than the rest of us: He has no idea what’s going on with “American Idol.” “I have no official information of anything,” the 45-year-old country singer-guitarist said. “I’m pretty much in the same boat as everybody else here with the rumors that have been floating around. I don’t know anything more about what’s happening next season. It was like this before I signed on … so it’s not unusual for the ‘Idol’ folks to be in this place of figuring out what they want to do, then they always pull it together.” Urban’s got plenty to distract him while he waits. The Australian country music star has set a Sept. 10 release date for his new album, “Fuse,” and that means he’s got to finish it. Urban thinks he’s got a few months of work left to do on the follow-up to 2010’s “Get Closer,” but leaves on tour in mid-July and hasn’t left himself much of a cushion. – Read more at The Washington Post

She’s very athletic, she likes to do every sport that all the boys are doing. Then at night, she likes to pull out the super glam sexy short dresses. She’s got those legs that are killer when she’s in a short dress,” says wardrobe head Cary Fetman, who has been dressing Bachelorettes since 2008. “She’s also more classic, she doesn’t wear a lot of jewelry. Last season I could pile as many necklaces [on Emily Maynard] as I wanted to, but this Bachelorette brings something different as to how to she carries the clothes.” – Read more at Entertainment Weekly
Goodbye Norma Jean – Bombshell songwriters talk music for Smash, song by song. A must read for fans of the show! suppose the greatest frustration Scott & I felt were how the actual moments in Marilyn Monroe’s life that led us to write our songs were almost never explained in the episodes, which was a shame for it would have enriched the storylines of Tom & Julia and made many of our choices clearer and maybe made our songs more meaningful.
So, what follows is the story of why and how our songs were written. – Read more at Terrace Productions.com
