Exciting news for fans of female-led rock bands, Pixar film soundtracks, disco, Canadian prog metal and legendary hip hop groups and blues artists: Heart, Randy NewmanDonna Summer, Rush, Public Enemy and Albert King are the 2013 inductees to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

And to the finalists who didn't make the cut – looking at you Kraftwerk, N.W.A. and the Meters – better luck next year.

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.
