Wham! reunion? It's a no-no.
George Michael has denied claims that he is to perform with Andrew Ridgeley at his final two concerts next month.
Reports suggested that the popstar was planning to reunite with his former Wham! bandmate as one of a "series of surprises" at his retirement shows at Earls Court.
But his spokesperson dismissed the rumors, telling The Mirror: "We don't know anything about it."
It's a double-O duet.
Alicia Keys and Jack White have recorded the theme song for the new James Bond film, "Quantum of Solace," producers said Wednesday.
The R&B singer and White Stripes frontman have teamed up for "Another Way to Die," the first duet to be chosen as a Bond theme. Producers said White has written and produced the song and also plays drums, as well as singing with 11-time Grammy winner Keys.
Producers Michael Wilson and Barbara Broccoli said they were "delighted and pleased to have two such exciting artists as Jack and Alicia, who were inspired by our film to join together their extraordinary talents in creating a unique sound for 'Quantum of Solace.' "
Previous Bond themes have been performed by the likes of Paul McCartney, Duran Duran and Madonna, and each new film's tune always produces intense speculation.
HBO remains hell-bent on finding a way to showcase the talents of Kanye West.

One key insider says HBO is now looking for a writer and some creative inspiration before moving forward with the project: We need to figure out how to capture Kanye in the right way.

In the September 2007 lecture, entitled "Achieving Your Childhood Dreams," an upbeat Pausch commented on everything from education and leadership to dating and his love of Star Trek.

Movie bosses want to bring Top Gun back to the big screen, but only if Tom Cruise says yes according to The Sun.
A script outline has been written, but the sequel depends on Cruise, 46, saying yes.
An insider said: The idea is Maverick is at the Top Gun school as an instructor and this time it is he who has to deal with a cocky new female pilot.
All I have to say is, "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!" If Tom is that desperate, he should just quit acting altogether. Let's seek solace in some of my fave Top Gun clips:
