Spears marries a second time

Britney Spears, 22, married fiancee Kevin Federline, 26, on Saturday, Sept. 18. The ceremony took place in California at a friend’s home with only 20-30 family and friends in attendance. Spears and Federline announced their engagement in June and were not to marry until sometime next year. The wedding was a surprise to everyone. Her family wasn’t aware of the wedding until the last minute. Spears’ first marriage to a childhood friend, Jason Alexander, was just as spur-of-the-moment as this one.

Dr. Dre and Burt Bacharach

Seventy-six year old songwriter and producer, Burt Bacharach, turned to rapper/producer Dr. Dre for some collaboration on his next album. Bacharach started his career more than 50 years ago and is now looking for some new inspiration from modern artists like Dre. Bacharach’s new album will be hitting the scene sometime in 2005. Though both artists will be working together and will have songs together on the album, their musical roots will not change.

Beck Album Delayed

The rock singer Beck was scheduled to release his new album on Oct. 26. The album will not be out until sometime in 2005. Though several tracks have been recorded for the untitled record, Beck and his producers will be unable to finish it for its original fall release. Even though Beck’s unique style of music won’t be coming to us until next year, we can definitely expect that the album will be released the moment it is completed.
