Did You Hear?

:: Pink has been added as one of the performers at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards. Expect the pop star to perform a new track off her upcoming album The Truth About Love. Think she can top her high-flying trapeze act (performing “Sober”) from three years ago? [MTV]

:: American Idol wants Diddy. The chances of Diddy wanting American Idol? Low. [E! Online]

:: Jordin Sparks was no doubt inspired by the time she spent with Whitney Houston during the making of Sparkle — the singer says her new album is influenced by “early Mariah, early Whitney” recordings. [Popjustice]

:: Adam “MCA” Yauch‘s will stipulates that “his image, music, and any art he created could not be used for advertising”, which means you won’t be hearing any Beastie Boys songs shilling iPads. [AV Club]

:: M.I.A. has sorta revealed the tracklisting for her upcoming album Matangi. We hesitate calling this an official tracklist since half the song titles are obscured and we don’t see “Bad Girls” anywhere on there. [Punchbowl Blog]
