What's hot...

Bruce Springsteen

He opened Obama's inauguration concert and now The Boss is back with brilliant new album Working on a Dream.

Isla Fisher

Sacha Baron Cohen's other half becomes a comedy star in Confessions of A Shopaholic, based on Sophie Kinsella's chick lit novel.

Dark Was the Night

Arcade Fire, Feist, The National and Conor Oberst all feature on this stunning CD compilation. And it's for Aids charity Red Hot.

...and what's not

Male solo stars

How did James Morrison and Will Young score a Brit Award nomination for British Male Solo Artist?

Kate Moss

Dead animals at her 35th birthday party. Has the style icon's taste taken a turn for the worse?

Music venues

It's not just London venues that are being closed. Leicester's Charlotte, which has hosted gigs by Arctic Monkeys, Blur and Oasis, is no more.
