the Buzz for January 5th, 2010



It’s the first week of a new year, and the pickins are extremely slim. Have at it:


  • She’s got the number one single — the ridiculous “Tik Tok” — in the crunchy right now. Now comes Animal, the full-length debut from Ke$ha.

  • Since it includes tunes co-written by the likes of Paula Cole and Rachael Yamagata, is it really fair to judge Unbroken, the sophomore effort from former “American Idol” runner-up Katharine McPhee, before we’ve actually heard it?

  • And finally, a CD/DVD combo chronicling Kanye West‘s recent visit to VH1 Storytellers.
