New video: Michael Buble's supermarket sweep I don't know about you, but generally when I head out to the supermarket I encounter total fugmos in the aisles — not smooth-voiced crooners like Michael Buble.

The singer, who's a favourite in Australia, is back with his new song 'Haven't Met You Yet',from his forthcoming album

Not sure why the clip is set in a supermarket. Though given that Michael's primary demographic is the mum set, who presumably spent a lot of time shopping for their families, perhaps he's just trying to appeal to his audience?

But don't get your hopes up that Michael will fall for you after you encounter him at your supermarket. The blonde beauty in the video is his current squeeze, Argentinean model Luisana Lopilato.

Check out the clip in the full post.

Return of the King: Elvis's grandson lands record deal Benjamin Presley could become the next uber-famous member of his family.

The Daily Mail reports that the 17-year-old — son of Lisa-Marie and grandson of Elvis — has been offered a record deal with Universal worth US$5 million.

Don't expect the King of Pop's influence to rub off on Ben: he reckons his music will be totally different in style to Elvis, who died 15 years before he was born.

Benjamin hopes to release his debut album in 2010.

Australian Idol: Top 8 - Pink After a terribly naff performance of 'Get the Party Started', Andrew G reveals that the theme of tonight's show is Pink songs. I should mention that he's hanging from one of those aerial hardness things that Pink uses in her concerts, which starts off as a cheesy gimmick but quickly becomes extremely hilarious when Tim spins him around and around in it until G's face looks like this:

His "I'm about to vomit" discomfort is the most genuine emotion I've seen on Australian Idol in years.

(Also, has anyone else noticed that Andrew has started introducing himself as "Andrew Gunsberg", using his full name?)

Elimination time. The girls are all safe, and the bottom three isn't who I expected it to be: Scott, James, and Tim. WHAAAAAT? James is in the bottom three? He's, like, the best one! Fortunately he's safe, and dreamy, dreamy Tim is given the boot. That's not entirely surprising, though Scott would have been more deserving of elimination. (Theory: Andrew G flicked Tim as revenge for spinning him around in the hardness. Controversy!)

So there's eight singers left. But the show still goes for two hours. You know what that means: filler! Lots and lots of filler. Skip straight to the good stuff in the full post.

Lady GaGa and Kanye West break up Music powerhouses Lady GaGa and Kanye West were supposed to tour together. Note the use of the word "supposed" — the whole thing has been cancelled.

Yep, their Fame Kills tour has been killed.

Why was it called off? No official reason has been given, but rumour has it that GaGa was keen to call of her partnership with Kanye after his bad behaviour at the VMAs last month. If that's true, we kind of don't blame her.

Australian Gaga fans can catch her in concert when she tours down here in March 2010.

Got a theory behind the Gaga/Kanye split? Post it in the comments.

Amy Winehouse's embarrassing rap video Okay, to be fair, a video of Amy Winehouse rapping ranks pretty low on the list of embarrassing things she's done. That said, this video of Amy Winehouse rapping is nevertheless pretty embarrassing.

For the record, I think Amy is a genuinely talented musician. (If you've never listened to any of her albums, go buy one right now.) Unfortunately she is not a genuinely talented rapper. In fact her skillz are kind of rubbish.

Best/worst lyrics: "I'm a Jew. Well, a Jewmaican." Oy vey. Watch the cringeworthy footage in the full post.

Britney Spears's 3-some

Check out the cover art for Britney's upcoming single '3'. I have a feeling that three Britneys is high on the list of male fantasies...

The release of '3', which hits radio on October 6, will coincide with the release of Britney Spears: The Singles Collection on November 20, which will in turn coincide with her highly anticipated Australian tour. In short: prepare for Britney overload.

2010's Big Day Out line-up announced In 2010 the Big Day Out is going to be, um, a big day out.

Muse will headline the star-studded festival — which will be interesting, given that everyone seems to either really love or really hate their latest album The Resistance — joined by acts including Lily Allen,

Local acts on the line-up include Powderfinger, Eskimo Joe, Grinspoon and Bluejuice (whose song 'Broken Leg' I'm constantly struggling to get out of my head).

FasterLouder has the complete list of acts at the Big Day Out, which will tour the country in January '10. Tickets go on sale in October.
