Mumford and Sons Have the Fastest Selling Rock Album in Four Years The British folk rockers are on pace to sell 600,000 copies of their sophomore album, Babel. For perspective, the year's previous best sales week belonged to Justin Bieber, who sold 374,000 copies of Believe. [Consequence of Sound]

Ke$ha Claims She Had Sex With a Ghost "I had a couple of experiences with the supernatural. I don't know his name! He was a ghost! I'm very open to it." With almost anyone else, that sentence would be surprising or weird. With Ke$ha, it's just business as usual. [NME]

Lil Wayne Now Has More Top 100 Singles Than Elvis Weezy has had 109 songs on the chart, topping Elvis' total by one. Somehow the Glee cast has had 204 entrees on the chart in just three years. [Billboard]

James Franco Recorded a Duet With Smokey Robinson Of course he did. Franco's band, Daddy, just released the video to "Love in the Old Days," which you can watch here. [THR]

July 22: HyunA Monkeys Around

HyunA, the K-pop star who gained global recognition from co-starring in Psy's "Gangnam Style" video, is teasing her new single "Red" in a very sexy, very odd new photoshoot. The singer poses amid two hunky beefcake wearing humongous, furry monkey heads. HyunA's new music will reportedly showcase a more "mature" side from the singer and while this isn't the look we were necessarily imagining, it does amp up our anticipation.

Get to know more about HyunA in our video feature here.
