Pink is on this week’s Billboard cover.
+ VMA 2012 performer Pink is readying to release her sixth album, The Truth About Love, on Sept. 18. This week she’s Billboard’s cover feature. “There’s this whole techno takeover going on right now that just does my head in and I knew I didn’t want to do that. I’d rather dance around and sing goofy songs,” she said. (Billboard)
+ Green Day has teamed up with “Angry Birds” for a 10-level game, which is expected to launch in the fall. The trio are transformed into pigs (with punk hairdos) and players will get to unlock the band’s new song, “Troublemaker.” Sweet, finally a way to teach my little nephews (and my mom) about Green Day. (Billboard)
+ Check out The Killers covering Oasis “Don’t Look Back in Anger” during U.K.’s V Festival in England. Also watch them perform new song “Miss Atomic Bomb” from Battle Born, which is due Sept. 18. (Idolator)
+ Jennifer Lopez is in the midst of making a 3-D concert film. Dance Again, which is also the name of her single with Pitbull, will showcase live performances as well as feature “the last few year’s of Jennifer’s life as she faced some big changes.” (Idolator)
+ A couple months ago, The Black Keys alleged Pizza Hut and Home Depot used music in their commercials that closely resembled the band’s songs and filed copyright infringement lawsuits. The companies each denied the charges. (MTV News)
