Jay-Z will appear on the first single from Dr. Dre's eternally delayed "Detox", assuming it ever actually comes out.

While Carrie Brownstein is busy blogging for NPR and Janet Weiss is drumming in various projects, the remaining third of Sleater-Kinney, Corin Tucker, has a solo album set to drop in October on Kill Rock Stars. She described the record to the Portland Mercury.

Speaking of Kill Rock Stars, the venerable label put out a free 21-song sampler.

Aziz Ansari has some new film projects in the works.

AV Club has an interview with Norm Macdonald.

Some zany reports are coming out of Lil Wayne's prison stay, of course.

Showtime picked up William H. Macy's new series, "Shameless".

"Jeopardy" and "Wheel of Fortune" will be around for at least four more years.

Finally, here's Ola Podrida's quirky video for "The Closest We Will Ever Be".
