Elton John is working on his biopic, properly entitled Rocketman. Written by Billy Elliot collaborator Lee Hall, the film with document the ups and downs and trials and tribulations of John's phenomenal career. No word as to when the film will be released.

The Godmother to Elton John's baby boy, Lady Gaga is already working on her new album, the follow-up to this years Born this Way. Gaga spoke to Ryan Seacrest and says "I've been working on that. I've been planning the next tour, which keeps me very excited and busy because I have lots of new ideas, and I know exactly how I want it to look."

Just days after announcing their break-up after 31 years together, R.E.M. have announced plans for another Greatest Hits album. The compilation, Part Lies, Part Heart, Part Truth, Part Garbage: 1982 – 2011, will feature hits from the band as well as new material. Which ends speculation, as we mentioned earlier that they were working on new material right before they broke up. This is the third R.E.M. Greatest Hits compilation and the first to feature music from both their years on IRS Records and Warner Bros. In the past the band released In Time - which was a retrospective of their Warner Bros. years and I Feel Fine - a retrospective of their IRS years.

In 2009 Public Image LTD got back together and front man John Lydon hinted new material would come. Well now the band shall deliver on their promise will release their first album of new material since 1992 next year. Marking 20 years since the final PiL record was released.
