Madonna releases new video, says tickets will be very expensive; Black Sabbath drummer might sit out reunion; Courtney Love killed her daughters pets

- Tickets for Madonna ’s upcoming tour are going to be very expensive according to ... Madonna. “Start saving your pennies now,” she told reporters yesterday. She will, of course, be performing at Sunday’s Super Bowl halftime show, and tickets for her upcoming tour are expected to go on sale soon. The tour will be in support of upcoming album, “MDNA,” out March 26.

- One track from that new album is “Give Me All Your Luvin’,” and it features M.I.A. and Nicki Minaj. (There it is above.) There’s a new video featuring all three of them, out today. As those two are confirmed as guests for this Sunday, you can expect to hear this song. Both M.I.A. and Minaj have new videos themselves. M.I.A.’s is for “Bad Girls” and Minaj’s was banned by BET for some reason.

- The promised original-lineup-reunion of Black Sabbath is in jeopardy with drummer Bill Ward threatening to sit out until he receives a “signable contract.”

- Lana Del Rey ’s “Born to Die” is expected to make a very respectable debut on the charts next week. She won’t beat Adele — who does? — but should still come in at No. 2. She also performed on “Letterman” last night and avoided disaster.

- In your latest sadly-not-so-shocking Courtney Love news — daughter Frances Bean Cobain said her mom killed her cat and dog.

- Dave Grohl is developing a sitcom about a rock band that needs to see a therapist in order to stay together. First thought is — why? No way it’ll be more hilarious than “Some Kind of Monster.”
