It seems that Paris just recorded a new single inspired by Kylie Minogue and also will release an album. Paris, 28, said: “I’ve always loved Kylie Minogue. She’s one of my favourite artists.

“I’ve been really inspired by her. I wanted my music to kind of emulate her. “I love her sound and I love the way she is.” She added: “I’ve finished recording my record. It’s like dance or club music. The album’s going to be out in a few months.”

Aretha Franklin will sing with Condoleezza Rice

Aretha Franklin and Rice will play together on the stage of Mann Center for the Performing Arts in Philadelphia, on July 27, at a charity concert. Funds raised will be donated for educational programs in the United States.

The press release issued by the Mann Center for the Performing Arts states that the former U.S. Secretary of State will accompany on piano Aretha Franklin, while she will perform some of her hits as “Say A Little Prayer” and “Natural Woman” but also songs included on her latest album, entitled “A Woman Falling Out of Love”.

The former head of Bush administration will also sing several passages of classical music, accompanied by the Philadelphia Orchestra.

The collaboration between the two women is unprecedented both in terms of music and politically.

Rice, a perfect pianist, played in the past with the famous cellist Yo-Yo Ma and other great classical artists, rarely approaching contemporary repertoire.

Politically, everything seems to separate the two women. Aretha Franklin, who sang at the investiture ceremony of President Barack Obama is a supporter of the Democratic Party, while Rice is a convinced republican.

“I think we can do something together, an effort to move beyond the differences, to the benefit of charitable organizations” said Aretha Franklin, referring to the original duo, seeming to deliberately parodying the diplomatic language, so popular her stage partner.

Michael Jackson is part of the biggest contract in music history

Rumors say that his estate will earn $200 million guaranteed for 10 projects in the following seven years. The landmark contract extends through 2017 and could pay his estate much more.

According to other reports, it seems that one of the albums will be of never-before-released Jackson recordings that will come out in November and there is also unreleased material for 2 or 3 albums.

Rumors say that these projects may also include a video game, a DVD compilation of videos and a re-release of Off the Wall, Jackson’s fifth studio album, which debuted back in ’79.

After his death, Jackson sold 31 million albums, about two-thirds of them outside the U.S.

“During his life, Michael’s contracts set the standard for the industry,” said John Branca, the co-administrator of the Jackson estate, in a statement Tuesday.

“By all objective criteria, this agreement with Sony Music demonstrates the lasting power of Michael’s music by exceeding all previous industry benchmarks.”

The landmark contract is worth more than all other benchmarks, such as the deals Live Nation signed with Madonna at $120 million and Jay-Z for $150 million.

The most important thing is that the money will go a long way toward paying off Jackson’s considerable debts, and providing a future for his three children.
