In Case You Haven’t Heard …

A Quick Serving of News and Gossip from the Music Biz

The 2008 MTV Video Music Awards finally got some girl power. Joining the fraternity of Kid Rock, Lil Wayne and the Jonas Brothers, expect to see Rihanna and Pink (whose new single “So What” will appear on Funhouse, set for an October release), as well as rapper T.I. and rock outfit Paramore.

Joining the ranks of motherhood is Spice Girl Mel C., who announced she was pregnant and will become the final member of the group to become a mama. Perhaps she can borrow clothes from Gwen Stefani, who recently gave birth to her second child with former Bush frontman, Gavin Rossdale.

Joining the ranks of the unemployed is former vocalist for Shiny Toy Guns, Carah Faye Charnow, who was reportedly ousted from the group and replaced by Sisley Treasure.

Longing for another multi-star power ballad? Look no further than “Stand Up,” a track that will be available on Sept. 2 on iTunes. Contributing to the cut, whose proceeds go to the Stand Up Against Cancer charity, is the eclectic lineup that includes Rihanna, Mariah Carey, Beyoncé, Mary J. Blige, Fergie, Sheryl Crow, Miley Cyrus, Melissa Etheridge, Ashanti, Natasha Bedingfield, Keyshia Cole, Ciara, Leona Lewis, LeAnn Rimes and Carrie Underwood. Look for all of the ladies to perform together during a multi-network fundraiser that will air on Sept. 5.

If you’re ready for some holiday music, Aretha Franklin is scheduled to drop This Christmas Aretha in the very near future. The Shapeshifters are also going to release their remixes and inspirations on a three-disc set for the popular In the House compilation series.

(Pssst … we also heard that Kelly Rowland mentioned that Destiny’s Child may be reuniting AND recording together in 2009.)

Got any plans for Sept. 12-14? Head to New York for Minitek, an event that will “explore innovation not only in respect to [electronic] music, but also to other forms of art, design and technology.” There will be plenty of parties and plenty of DJs spinning during this three-day event.
