Australian singer/actress Holly Valance is making her music return with her first new track in 10 years. The Kiss Kiss hitmaker has recorded vocals for pop star Andy Clockwise's song Hopeless, from his upcoming EP Dancing World.
Valance has not released any fresh material since 2004 singles Curious and Desire. She also featured on Har Mar Superstar's The Handler album, which hit retailers in the same year.
The 31 year old took time out of her music career to return to acting after losing her passion for pop.
She has since settled down with her businessman husband Nick Candy. The couple, which wed in 2012, welcomed its first child, daughter Luka Violet Toni Candy, in November (13).
Singer Jessica Simpson has become Mrs. Eric Johnson after tying the knot in Santa Barbara, California. The bride wore a custom Carolina Herrera gown as she wed former American football player Johnson at the San Ysidro Ranch on Saturday (05Jul14) in front of more than 250 guests, including her sister Ashlee Simpson and her fiance Evan Ross, best friend CaCee Cobb and her actor husband Donald Faison, and pal Jessica Alba and her partner Cash Warren.
The happy couple's two-year-old daughter Maxwell served as a flower girl and its one-year-old son Ace was given the role of ring bearer. Ashlee's five-year-old boy with ex-husband Pete Wentz, Bronx, also took part in the ceremony.
A statement issued by the newlyweds to People.com reads: "We are overwhelmed with complete happiness and love having made our eternal commitment.
"To say 'I do' in front of family, friends and, most importantly, our children has been the happiest moment of our lives."
The nuptials took place a day after Simpson and Johnson hosted a pre-wedding barbecue at the same venue to celebrate America's Independence Day (04Jul14) with all of their guests.
The couple began dating in early 2010 and became engaged on the blonde beauty's 30th birthday in November of that year (10), but the pair had to postpone plans to wed twice after the 33 year old fell pregnant with their kids.
Simpson was previously married to singer Nick Lachey from 2002 to 2006.
Six previously unheard recordings by late British singer/songwriter Nick Drake are expected to fetch at least $425,000 (£250,000) at auction. Fellow folk star Beverley Martyn reveals the tapes are in "pristine" condition, despite being recorded 46 years ago. The tracks, including versions of Fruit Tree and Cello Song, were made months before the 1969 release of Drake's debut album Five Leaves Left.
She tells Independent.co.uk, "He was young, he sounds full of fun, he sounds light and his guitar playing is absolutely excellent. It really shows that he didn't need to have this whole layer cake of strings."
Martyn claims she decided to sell off the tapes due to her own failing health, adding, "Someone else should be able to enjoy it."
The memorabilia will go under the hammer at London auction house Ted Owen and Company on 31 July (14).
News of the auction emerges three months after Martyn shared another of Drake's unheard compositions, a duet between the pals, titled Restless Jane. It was included on her album The Turtle And The Phoenix.
Drake was just 26 when he committed suicide in 1974.
Singer Jessica Simpson is planning to wed again at California's San Ysidro Ranch on Saturday (05Jul14), according to reports. Sources tell U.S. news show Entertainment Tonight that while many Americans are celebrating the Independence Day weekend, Simpson and her beau Eric Johnson will be exchanging vows after the couple stalled its nuptials last year (13) when the bride fell pregnant with her second child.
Insiders at the ranch near Santa Barbara reveal the place has been completely booked on Saturday for the past three months, and Simpson will reportedly be wearing a pale pink Marquesa dress for her second wedding.
She was previously married to singer Nick Lachey.
Sources claim Simpson and her fiance have also booked a nearby event space in a bid to baffle the paparazzi.
Simpson threw a bachelorette party in Los Angeles on 8 June (14).
Pop star Demi Lovato has hit the studio with Nick Jonas to create music for a new collaborative side project. The Camp Rock co-stars have been close friends ever since their days working for Disney, and while Lovato has gone on to be a successful solo artist, Jonas has separated from his siblings in The Jonas Brothers and ventured into acting.
In an interview with MTV, the Skyscraper hitmaker reveals they have now reunited to work on a new track, and hints it could result in them forming their own act. She says, "I did write an amazing song with Nick Jonas and we want to do something with that, but we are not quite sure, so maybe we can do a side project together. We may or may not have picked out the band name already."
However, fans will have to wait a little bit longer for a Lovato/Jonas supergroup. She adds, "I know he's working on his new album too, so it might not be for awhile, but the two of us... I'm always writing songs and he's always writing songs. "Inevitably we end up on the same team, musically. It just always happens."
Jonas recently served as the creative director for Lovato's Neon Lights concert tour. The singer famously dated Nick's elder brother, Joe. They split in 2010.
Singer Ozzy Osbourne has been tapped to voice a character in children's animated show Bubble Guppies. The Black Sabbath frontman will guest star as Sid Fishy, "a rock and roll fish who loves being rotten," on the popular Nickelodeon series.
Osbourne explains he was keen to take on the role because of his granddaughter Pearl.
He says, "She has Nick Jr. on 24/7 (all day). I can’t wait to see her reaction when she hears my voice come from Sid Fishy’s mouth."
The 65 year old's first episode will premiere next year (15).
He's not the only member of the Osbourne family to find success as a kids TV character - Ozzy's wife Sharon voices Captain Hook's mother in Jake & the Never Land Pirates.
Bobby Brown marked Father's Day on Sunday (15Jun14) by reuniting with his daughter Bobbi Kristina.

However, father and daughter were reunited this weekend (14-15Jun14) to mark Father's Day and Bobbi Kristina documented the meeting by posting a series of pictures on her Twitter.com page.
One of the shots shows Bobbi Kristina jumping into her dad's arms. She writes in a series of posts, "Out to dinner with daddy... #HappyHappyFathersDay! (sic)... #Happy Father's Day! (sic)."

Perry's tutorial served as an example of what she did with the aspiring singers on her new reality series, Make or Break: The Linda Perry Project.
Singer-turned-TV presenter Nick Lachey has signed on as presenter of U.S. news show Big Morning Buzz Live for a second season. He confirmed the news in response to a fan's Twitter.com question during Tuesday's (10Jun14) episode. The series will return in the autumn (14).
