POP: Cyndi Lauper's Getting a Reality Show
WE TV announced today that '80s pop icon Cyndi Lauper is getting a docu-soap reality show about her life, which sounds like it could be a little bit fun and a little bit sad. The current title of the show is just Cyndi, which is a lame title given what they could have come up with (anything else!). [Vulture]

POP: Blake Shelton and Adam Levine Will Be In Your Grocery Store
Blake Shelton and Adam Levine, two of the four hosts on The Voice, are on the cover of People Magazine this month, sitting in a car together. They look like they've got a true bromance going on. Check out the cover here. [People]

METAL: Guns n' Roses Rock the Charts with Promo
Guns n' Roses' Greatest Hits, which came out in 2004, rocketed up the digital charts this week and landed in the No. 3 spot. Why? Amazon's online music store lowered the price of the collection to $0.25 to compete with Google's new online music store, which was also offering the album for $0.25. [Blabbermouth]

HIP HOP: David Banner & Big K.R.I.T. Drop New Video
Mississippi spitter David Banner released his Jodeci-sampling track "Believe" with Big K.R.I.T. about a week ago, and today he dropped a video that centers around their neck of the woods: rural Mississippi. Watch below.

HIP HOP: 2 Chainz Goes on Spring Break
Atlanta's 2 Chainz was once half of Playaz Circle, who dropped the Lil Wayne-featuring street anthem "Duffle Bag Boy" in 2009, and yesterday 2 Chainz hit MTV's Spring Break set in Las Vegas to perform "Duffle Bag Boy" in front of a poolful of girls in bikinis. Party time. Watch the video below.
