:: 30 years ago musical legends Michael Jackson and Queen‘s Freddie Mercury recorded various duets together, and now the songs will finally be released this Fall. The demos were recorded in 1983 in Jackson’s home studio, but they never got to see the light due to conflicting schedules. They both are talented on their own, so a duet is pretty major!

:: Jack White has donated $200,000 to the National Recording Preservation Foundation, an independent, non-profit charitable corporation established by the U.S. Congress. According to Billboard, the foundation supports archives, libraries and other institutions that strive to preserve America’s radio music and recorded sound heritage. [Billboard]
:: Toni Braxton has been battling bankruptcy for years and now the R&B singer has lost the rights to 27 songs including hits like “You’re Making Me High” and “Always.” Toni could buy back the songs for $20,000 but she’s bound to be outbid. Poor thing. [TMZ]
:: In sadder news, PSY has revealed his intense and probably unhealthy drinking habits. He hold The Sunday Times Magazine, “If I’m happy, I’m drinking, if I’m sad, I’m drinking. If it’s raining, I’m drinking, if it’s sunny, I’m drinking.” Maybe it’s time to put down the bottle. [NME]
