Adele at this year's Golden GlobesAdele will perform "Skyfall" at the Oscars next month. The 24-year-old pop star will perform the theme to the latest James Bond movie during the 85th Academy Awards at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on February 24.

"It's an honor to be nominated and terrifyingly wonderful to be singing in front of people who have captured my imagination over and over again. It's something I've never experienced and probably only ever will once!" the 24 year-old singer said.

The track, which Adele co-wrote with Paul Epworth, has been nominated for Original Song and is the first Bond theme to get an Oscar nod since "For Your Eyes Only" in 1981. It has already seen success, winning the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song earlier this month.

Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, producers of this year's Academy Awards, hailed Adele's "unique artistry." They said, "She is currently one of the most successful recording artists in the world, and we believe her performance of 'Skyfall' will be an exciting Oscar moment."

Apple shutting down Ping on September 30

Remember when Apple launched Ping? It was supposed to be the quintissential social network for anyone who loved music. Except that Apple crippled Ping right out of the gate, and we learned that it wasn't really a social network at all - it was just another method the company wanted to take advantage of to get people to buy more music. It was annoying and resrictive. You could only talk about music that was available on iTunes...and nothing more. Recently, it was rumored that Apple would kill Ping, and now it has been confirmed. Ping closes its doors on September 30th. Anyone out there upset by the closure? Anyone?

The 35-year-old rapper has announced via Twitter that his new track "Perfect B***h" is about his curvy reality star girlfriend, putting an end to the speculation which started when he premiered the song in New York's Dream Downtown club last Friday. Kanye simply tweeted, "I wrote the song Perfect Bitch about Kim."

Despite the song not having been released yet, a source told the Daily News that "Stronger" hitmaker Kanye's lyrics are all "about his search for the perfect woman and how he has now found the 'perfect b***h.'"

The outspoken rap artist was partying with Leonardo DiCaprio when he pulled out a laptop and asked DJ Reach to blast out his new songs. Onlookers revealed "Perfect B***h" contains numerous references to Kim's infamous curvaceous figure and pert derriere. The star previously rapped about being in love with Kim on "Way Too Cold" while she was still happily married to Kris Humphries.
