Black Eyed PeasBlack Eyed Peas are set to return next year.

The "I Gotta Feeling" group - will.i.am, Fergie, apl.de.ap and Taboo - are getting back together for their first studio album and tour since The Beginning in 2010. "The Black Eyed Peas are all in agreement they should put a new tour on for the fans - it's not like they properly split when they parted for a hiatus in 2012. This time around they're going to head back into the studio and lay down a new album quickly and then hit the road once again. Will.i.am has been instrumental in persuading all the Peas to get back into shape and hit the road again," a source said.

The source says new mother Fergie - who has five-month-old son Axl Jack with her husband Josh Duhamel - has been holding the process up. "Fergie's been stalling and wants to hold out for as much money as she can guarantee. She's got a baby now and needs it to be a very worthy amount to make her take her baby on the road," the insider added.

Abbie CornishAbbie Cornish wants to be a rapper.

The RoboCop actress is determined to pursue a career in hip-hop and has admitted she's currently recording an album, which she is hoping to release later this year.

"I'm half-way through it [the album]. I go back into the studio at the end of February. It should be finished soon. It should be released toward the end of the year," she said.

The 31-year-old star takes inspiration from Eminem, but insists her music taste is varied: "My favorite rapper is Eminem. But my music collection goes from classical to jazz to blues. My favorite era is the sixties and seventies. I have a very eclectic taste in music."

However, the blonde beauty insists her studio collection won't contain lots of covers because she prefers to write her own tracks and she's also lined up some collaborations. "I compose and write. I'm working with a lot of producers and musicians," she explained.

Sia and Kylie MinogueKylie Minogue has blamed Sia for making her album about sex.

The "All the Lovers" hitmaker has teamed up with the producer for her forthcoming album Kiss Me Once - which includes tracks "Sexy Love," "Sexercize" and "Les Sex" - and insists she encouraged her to put a cheeky spin on her tracks to make them sound hotter.

"Sia is executive producer with me, which is amazing and a little dream come true, and there was a certain point on the album where we had countless songs, and she said, 'We need some sex on there.. we need a hot song.' Next thing I know there's 'Sexy Love,' 'Sexercize' and 'Les Sex'! And even looking at the album titles, trying to figure out what makes it on the album, I thought 'I can't really do that,' and then I thought 'Yeah, I really have to do that because they're all really great songs.' And I couldn't call them anything else, because that's what they are."

Lana Del Rey has spilled the beans (by accident!) about the release date for her upcoming album, Ultra-Violence.

While signing autographs and chatting with fans, Lana was caught off guard when one of them armed with a camera asks her, "When is your album coming out?" To which she answers, ""It's coming out soon... May 1st." The woman behind the camera responds, "May 1st? Has that date been announced? This is the first time we're hearing that date." The singer then realizes that she's being filmed, smiling, she exclaims, "What - is that on video?" She quickly tries to save herself by simply saying, "I think so," when the surrounding fans ask her for confirmation of the date.

Missy ElliottMissy Elliott is set to make a comeback.

The American rapper and producer is planning her return to music nine years after releasing her last album The Cookbook and has hinted she could follow in Beyonce's footsteps and surprise fans. In a chat with Yahoo's The Yo Show, Missy said, "When I create something, it's gotta be special, and it can't just be to throw something out there because I feel like I'm Missy. I gotta feel like what I'm giving the fans is 100 per cent and that it's game-changing. I don't just throw out microwave records."

Missy confirmed her comeback album is imminent but when quizzed about the release date, she replied, "I just ain't telling nobody when."

After stepping out of the spotlight in 2005, she began producing and lending her vocals to singles by Monica, Keyshia Cole, Jazmine Sullivan and Jennifer Hudson. Since 2007 Missy has teased her seventh album, Block Party, with a handful of singles including "Best, Best," "Ching-a-Ling" and "Shake Your Pom Pom," but the full record has never been released.

Lana Del ReyLana Del Rey's new album is "so dark it's almost unlistenable."

The "Born to Die" singer has completed work on her second record, Ultra and warned fans it will not be particularly cheerful. According to MTV, she told fans in an online chat, "The record is finished and it's beautiful. And don't worry you will love Ultra - it's so wrong and exquisite. It is absolutely gorgeous - darker then the first - so dark it's almost unlistenable and wrong. But I love it. X."

Her second album may be moody, but the singer's personal life is certainly not, as it was recently revealed she has secretly been engaged to musician Barrie-James O'Neill since last summer. The "Video Games" star and Barrie - previously singer in the folk-rock band Kassidy - first got together in 2011.

Ultraviolence is set to be released this year.

OutKastOutKast stars Big Boi and Andre 3000 are working on solo albums.

The group's producer Mr. DJ has revealed the pair are at Stankonia Studios in Atlanta recording material for their own projects and not an OutKast album, after the duo announced they will reform to play 40 festivals this year. Mr. DJ told Revolt TV that Andre 3000 is set to release his debut solo album in coming months, while Big Boi is working on his third solo LP, the follow-up to 2012's Dangerous Lies and Vicious Rumors.

The producer suspects the duo, who are kicking off their tour by headlining Coachella in California this April, will reunite after the gigs and plan new material. "I get the feeling that the energy and camaraderie from the tour will bring everything full circle. We may make it back in for an album following that," he explained.
