- Speaking of sales, Beyonce predictably topped this week’s Billboard charts, moving 310,000 copies of her new album, “4.” It’s her worst sales debut, though. Fitting for her worst album.

- Hey, there’s more Wugazi .

- “This game 2 fake I quite (sic) rap after this year.” Say it ain’t so, Waka!

- Noel Gallagher announced details of two upcoming albums at a London press conference.
