You may be a fan of Kelly Clarkson's older hits, like "Since U Been Gone" and "Miss Independent," but the 30-year-old singer herself would rather tune out.
"Sometimes, I can't listen to really old school songs ... because they just use so much autotune when it's not needed that it kills me. I can't listen to it," Clarkson told CNN. "What I love about that though is on songs like 'Miss Independent,' not only was it autotune, I just sounded different, I sounded so young."

"The Twilight Saga" has been such a consistently major part of pop culture over the past four years, it's hard to remember a time before "Twilight," let alone imagine what a "Twilight"-less future looks like.
And for the trio of actors at the heart of the adaptation, which has spun Stephenie Meyer's four novels into a five-film epic, the best way to sum up the end of their "Twilight" era is "surreal."

One day it's Nick Jonas, then it's Nicki Minaj, then it's Brad Paisley or Keith Urban or Kanye West. And now, Alanis Morissette tells us that she, too, has had a conversation about sitting at that table.

Brooke Hogan's new job sort of has her following in her father's footsteps, and she tells CNN that he wasn't thrilled about it at first.
Brooke, daughter of legendary wrestler Hulk Hogan, now manages the female division (a.k.a., "The Knockouts") of TNA's "Impact Wrestling" on Spike TV, she told CNN at the MTV Movie Awards Sunday.
"Secretly I always wanted to wrestle, even though I’m a total pansy," she said. "I cannot take a bump for the life of me, but I just saw the opportunity, and I was like 'why not,' you know, it’s temporary. I get to get in there and straighten a few things out, you know. I’m passionate about it, I’ve grown up in the business, and it’s fun."

The music industry is reeling from the death of Whitney Houston, particularly those who saw Houston this weekend in Los Angeles.
The legendary entertainer was in town for Grammy Awards events, and was spotted Thursday in the ballroom of the Beverly Hilton as Monica and Brandy rehearsed to perform at Clive Davis' annual pre-Grammy gala, which went on as planned Saturday evening.
A video of Houston performing with Kelly Price (which comes courtesy VGS&L/Steve Jones @iamstevejones) has been circulating on the Web, and is said to have been taken on Thursday at a pre-Grammys party.
