* Melbourne born DJ Havana Brown's star is most definitely on the rise - after releasing a number of compilation albums throughout the past couple of years and being chosen as the support act on Britney Spears' forthcoming tour of the country, Havana is now ready to whisk her way off to Singapore to play the 'F1 Rocks' party as part of the city's formula one grand prix from September 24. She shares the billing with Black Eyed Peas, Beyonce and N.E.R.D.
* EMI has announced that Lily Allen's latest album 'It's Not Me, It's You' has just rocked up triple platinum status in Australia. The album, which has spawned the hits 'The Fear', 'Not Fair' and '22' has now sold over 210,000 copies in the country.
* Rock outfit Thirty Seconds To Mars will release their brand new album 'This Is War' in Australia on November 20. In a unique move, the album will have 2000 (yes, two THOUSAND) different album covers - each featuring the photo of a fan. Check HERE for more information to see how you can get involved.
* Speaking of clever marketing and rock acts, Pearl Jam, whose new album 'Backspacer' hits the stores this weekend, have announced that fans who buy their new album on CD, iTunes or at Universal Music's digital music site GETMUSIC.COM.AU will receive the audio of two entire Pearl Jam concerts absolutely free. What's more is that there are a number of live concerts to choose from and the band may give fans access to more bonuses in the future.
* Pop queen Madonna looks set to nab the No.2 spot in the UK with her latest single 'Celebration' if the all-important mid-weeks are to be believed. They currently have her 10.000 copies behind Taio Cruz in the race to the top spot.
* Meanwhile on the Aussie iTunes charts, David Guetta is back in the No.1 position with his single 'Sexy Bitch'. The Black Eyed Peas have raced into the top ten with their latest single 'Meet Me Halfway', while Glee fever looks like taking over the country - the cast single 'Don't Stop Believin'' is up to No.20.
* And in the Tweet world, Beverley Knight had her credit card cloned (and we thought they were only doing that with sheep), Frankmusik reckons he's looking old and Anthony Callea gave it to someone while in the checkout at Coles and came home with two tubs of sorbet. Interesting place, Twitter, isn't it?
