- The Flaming Lips are preparing to release an album of collaborations. Those who have signed on so far include (from least to most terrifying) Bon Iver, Nick Cave and Yoko Ono. Lips frontman Wayne Coyne is holding out hope that Ke$ha will participate as well.

- The Brit Awards nominees were announced and hey, Adele is the big favorite. But the bigger news is that she will perform at the London event on Feb. 21, her first scheduled performance since her throat surgery.
