1) Madonna: MDNA” sells faster than ecstasy at a rave. Even her songwriting “friend,” Molly bought some.

2) Justin Bieber:
If iTunes is any indication, this “Boyfriend’ gained about 400,000 new girlfriends this week.

3) One Direction:
The boy band will publish their biography. I already know their favorite foods, colors, and seasons. What else is there to say?

4) Lionel Richie:
Richie worked “Tuskegee,” his new album featuring him with top country stars, with the unbridled enthusiasm of a newcomer and the shine and poise of a veteran to claim his highest debut in 24 years. Still, we’re waiting for Vol. 2 and his duet with Taylor Swift on “Brickhouse.”

5) Goldenvoice:
Coachella’s concert promoter bought 280 acres surrounding the 90-acre concert site. They could have just rented a RV or camping space like everyone else...

6) Spotify:
The streaming service extends its free, ad-supported streaming indefinitely and goes looking for $3.5 billion in funding. Spotify owns no content, so what exactly would I be investing in again?

7) “Mad Men”:
Taking a page from “Glee” and “Smash,” “Mad Men” instantly put Jessica Pare’s sultry version of “Zou Bisou Bisou” on iTunes after Sunday’s Season Five premiere. We hope this isn’t a trend. Doesn’t Matt Weiner know iTunes wasn’t born until 2003?  

8) 98 Degrees:
With a boy band resurgence in full swing, Nick Lachey, his brother and the two other dudes decide to make another go-round with a reported 15-city tour this summer, their first in 10 years. Hey,  Lachey’s about to become a daddy...not a bad idea to tuck away a little extra coin.

9) Aretha Franklin:
After some drastic health issues a few years ago, the Queen of Soul shows she’s nowhere near done. At 70, she has signed a new record deal with her long-time buddy Clive Davis. Long may she reign.

10) Electronic Dance Music:
Has it officially jumped the shark if EMI has created its own global major division to pump the beat worldwide?
