Jimmy Fallon's Got The Moves Like Jagger
Saturday Night Live not only has the moves like Jagger — they’ve got the actual Mick Jagger. The Rolling Stones frontman will host and perform as the musical guest on the May 19 season finale. This will mark the rocker’s third time as the show’s musical guest, and though he has never hosted before, he has popped up in a few sketches, including one last December where Jimmy Fallon played his reflection. Watch it above to see the comedy gold we’ve got in store for the finale! (And please, will.i.am — stay home that night. We really don’t need to hear Mick telling us “you can go hard, or you can go home” ever again.) [Via THR]

‘s third season has already birthed quite a number of awesome mash-ups, including Adele’s “Someone Like You” mixed with “Rumour Has It”, and Destiny’s Child’s “Survivor” mixed with Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive”.

The Morning Mix: Justin Bieber’s “Swagger Coach” Just A Myth

Did You Hear?

:: Turns out, Justin Bieber’s “swagger coach” Ryan Good is really just a road manager with a fancy name. Way to ruin our dream of becoming a swagger coach to the stars one day, Answer B!tch. [E! Online]

:: Check out the list of six albums that should be sold as one complete entity instead of being broken down into individual singles. You know it’s going to be an interesting list when Spice World makes the cut. [Black Book]

:: Courtney Love was allegedly attacked by daughter Frances Bean. When are these two getting together for the 2010 remake of Mommie Dearest? [Wonderwall]

:: Lil Wayne is prohibited from signing autographs while in jail. Apparently tweets are also a no-no, as we haven’t received any sort of 140-character sonnet since March 8. [Hip-Hop Wired]

:: Both of John Mayer’s recent exes—Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Aniston—appeared on the same episode of Good Morning America. We wonder what on Earth they could of talked about in the green room. [The Superficial]

PHOTOS: Jay-Z’s In An Empire State Of Mind In ‘Interview’ Magazine

In this month’s Interview magazine, rap legend Jay-Z opens up about success, his music, and that whole Taylor Swift thing. The pictures from fashion photographer Craig McDean, (the same celeb snapper who gave us the nearly-nude Rihanna pics from this month’s W Magazine) show a pensive and serious Jay-Z. And why shouldn’t he look introspective? The man just turned 40. He tells Interview, “… in rap years, I’m like The Rolling Stones or U2.” We hope he’s not saying he plans to release a series of irrelevant albums and just rest on his old hits. (Ahem.) Take a look at these pics and you’ll agree: after all these years, you still can’t knock that he’s “a hustler baby”.

‘Billboard’ Dubs Eminem As Decade’s Top Artist, Rolling Stones as Top Touring Act

Marshall Mathers has done it again. Billboard is following in Nielsen Soundscan’s footsteps and naming Eminem as the Top Artist of the Decade. Six of the seven studio recordings Em released in this decade — hell yes, we’re counting the 8 Mile soundtrack — reached or debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200, while two of his 20 songs to chart on the Hot 100 singles tally hit the top spot there (“Lose Yourself” and “Crack a Bottle”).

In Billboard’s eyes, it’s still ultimately album sales that count the most (understandably so — sorry, Artist With The Most Number One Hits). But we’ve all pretty much shifted to a shuffle/singles world. Will the 00′s be remembered as the last decade that albums “mattered”? We’re nervous about the future — vomit on our sweater already — but excited.

See who trailed Eminem on the big list, and look who followed Mick & Keith on Billboard’s list of this decade’s (and probably the previous decade’s) biggest tours as the industry magazine cleans out the rest of its closet after the jump.

Top 10 Artists of the Decade

1. Eminem
2. Usher
3. Nelly
4. Beyonce
5. Alicia Keys
6. 50 Cent
7. Nickelback
8. Britney Spears
9. Destiny’s Child
10. Jay-Z

This list makes little sense to us when we first go over it. Nickelback? Nelly?! Not exactly critical darlings that are still being buzzed about anymore, but just goes to show just how crazy successful they were for a brief amount of time. At least Em logically lands on top, since he’s maintained his following from the start to the finish of the decade, even when taking a three year absence from making music.

Top 10 Touring Acts of the Decade

1. Rolling Stones
2. U2
3. Madonna
4. Bruce Springsteen
5. Elton John
6. Celine Dion
7. Dave Matthews Band
8. Kenny Cheney
9. Bon Jovi
10. Billy Joel

The Rolling Stones topped the list with a total gross of $869,471,325 over the course of 264 shows (190 of them sold out). It’s interesting to note that not one of Billboard’s Top Artists of the Decade ranked as biggest touring act. In fact, most of these artists who banked the most by touring earned their notoriety in previous decades. It’s clearly indicative just how long you need to build a fan base that would go see you no matter what album you put out (or don’t).

Check out the full lists at Billboard.com, where you can also check out what some of your favorite (or most hated) artists chose as their top music picks of the Noughties. Because the best person to ask about the last ten years of music is an American Idol alum who just entered the cultural zeitgeist six months ago.

The “Parklife” Stamp: Even Better Than Sealing Your Letter With A Kiss

Next year, the UK will issue a series of stamps dedicated to the art of the British album cover. The Stones’ Let It Bleed, New Order’s Power, Corruption, and Lies, Primal Scream’s Screamadelica, and Blur’s Parklife will all be honored in this 10-stamp issue. If the US had a similar stamp issue, I wonder what albums would get the nod? You’d think Thriller would be a no-brainer, and Madonna’s True Blue would look kinda dynamite, but after that… ? (First person to shout Merriweather Post Pavilion!” is fired.) The full issue of stamps after the jump.

Haha, Coldplay. Oh, you Brits.
