Kelly ClarksonKelly Clarkson is "nowhere near" retirement.

The "Miss Independent" hitmaker has just released her Greatest Hits Chapter One album to commemorate 10 years in the music industry since becoming the first winner of American Idol in 2002, but she is struggling to get her head around reaching such a milestone.

"I'm 30 but the label said, 'Let's do a greatest hits.' Each record is a chapter of your life and I will only retire when it stops being fun. But right now I'm nowhere near," she said.

The track Kelly is most proud of on the album is her "baby" of a song "Because Of You," released in 2004, as it brings back memories of her as a young songwriter: "'Because Of You' was my baby because I wrote it when I was a kid, then it went to number one worldwide, which meant a lot as a singer and a writer."

The Rolling StonesThe Rolling Stones are facing a $320,000 fine because their gig at London's O2 on Sunday was 35 minutes too long.

The veteran rockers - made up of Mick Jagger, Ronnie Wood, Keith Richards and Charlie Watts - were playing the first of their historic 50 and Counting shows and were meant to finish at 10:30pm. However, they defied local council rules and thrilled the 20,000-strong crowd by continuing to play encores until 11:05pm, meaning they will be given a huge fine.

"It means a big fine - but the guys just do their thing. There wasn't a janitor standing there, jangling his keys, saying. 'I want to go home,'" their agent Bernard Doherty told The Sun.

Move over, Justin Bieber - there's a new internet sensation in town.

Korean singer/rapper Psy's popular music video for his song "Gangnam Style" just reached close to 818 million views, surpassing Bieber's for his song "Baby," which previously held the title for the most watched YouTube video (his count is currently around 804 million). The "Gangnam Style" music video (shown above) sees Psy singing his song in a combination of typical music video locations (near the pool, around some dancing, scantily-clad women) to some funny situations (a closing elevator, a bathroom stall).

Since Psy's video became an internet hit, he has performed on Saturday Night Live and with Madonna and MC Hammer.

Marilyn MansonMarilyn Manson found it hard to admit his career needed rejuvenating. The goth rocker became "frustrated and didn't want to work on music" and blamed the "incompetent salesmen" at former record label Interscope for diluting his music:

"I'd make things and I'd turn them into the profiteers, the record label, Interscope or whoever, and they would do something with it that was not only as smart as what I would do with it, it diluted it. They tried to dull it down, basically. I didn't even understand why they wanted me in the first place. I'm not bitter about it, I'm just pointing out that they were incompetent salesmen. So I did my best to get dropped from my label. It was like starting over. I mean, it wasn't like I was scrounging around for another record deal; people were throwing a lot of money around, but what is money? It's just something that allows you to continue doing what you like to do in life. I don't care about money."

Nicki MinajNicki Minaj was denied entry to her own album release party.

The "Moment For Life" singer is reportedly very unhappy after police prevented her from celebrating the release of her new album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded The Re-Up with her entourage at New York hotspot Greenhouse Nightclub last night because the club was already full to capacity.

"Nicki turned up to the club with about 25 people at 3:30 in the morning. She wanted to celebrate with her fans, but she was denied entry at the door by the police because they said the venue was at capacity and there was nothing they could do to accommodate her," a source said.

According to insiders Nicki, 29, was scheduled to make an appearance alongside rappers and music producers Flo Rida and Fabolous but arrived at the event too late. "Nicki wasn't happy about it, so she and her group just left," an eyewitness said.

Christina AguileraChristina Aguilera's bullies have inspired her biggest hits.

The "Your Body" singer - who has regularly been criticized for her curvier figure recently - admitted she is impacted by the negativity but channels her feelings into her music. In an emotional interview with Dateline NBC, the 31-year-old star said, "I have definitely experienced forms of bullying, and that's why it's so important for me to write songs like 'Beautiful' and 'Fighter.' On this current record, Lotus is all about being an unbreakable flower that survives the test of time. Throughout the roughest of surroundings and harshest weather conditions it remains strong and thrives."

The provocative singer also opened up about her relationship with her four-year-old son Max and insisted she is doing everything she can to give him a better childhood than her own. Christina became visibly emotional when asked about her bond with Max during the interview and her desire to have him grow up feeling safe and secure. "He is my heart he is my world, he's just my baby. I am definitely accomplishing that goal thus far. No matter what, I know he is in an environment that makes him very safe," the 31 year-old Voice mentor said.

The 22-year-old "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" singer and the 18-year-old Canadian popstar scooped three awards each at the star-studded event hosted by supermodel Heidi Klum in Frankfurt, Germany.

Performer Taylor - who made her first appearance at the annual awards ceremony and recently released her new album Red - picked up awards for Best Female, Best Live and the debut Best Look award. "I am so excited about tonight. It doesn't even feel real, to get to my first EMAs and to win three awards is unbelievable, I am blown away. I had a blast during the performance that was the most production I've ever got to do during a performance with all the circus acrobats it was so much fun," she said.

Carly Rae JepsenCarly Rae Jepsen is being sued over "Call Me Maybe."

A Ukranian singer, Aza, is filing a lawsuit in Los Angeles, claiming the Canadian star's mega hit copies her track, "Hunky Santa." The lawsuit claims the festive themed song - recorded in English - has the same lyrical basis as Carly's track, and was taken without consent.

"I'm shocked and surprised that these people wanted to sample my lyrics on their song. They didn't ask me for permission, they just took it. That's why I filed this lawsuit. When I first heard it on the radio, I was driving and almost got into an accident. I couldn't believe what I was hearing," former Miss Ukraine Aza told TMZ.com.

The lawsuit is seeking substantial damages to compensate Aza.

Representatives for Carly, 26, deny her track is in any way related to "Hunky Santa." A representative said, "This is completely false and Carly's lawyers will deal with this. Everyone knows Carly is a songwriter. She is not spending a lot of time listening to Ukrainian radio."
