MUSIC NOTES: Madonna and More Wedding Rumor

The Queen of the Rumor Mill is at it again.

Madonna fanned the flames of marriage rumors to filmmaker Guy Ritchie when she was spotted in Scotland visiting a Cathedral, Reuters reports.

Local newspapers ran blurry photos of the pop star and Ritchie stepping out of a private jet after they landed, reportedly to visit Doornoch Cathedral near Inverness.

Madonna has been quoted as saying that she will marry Ritchie next year sometime. Newspapers, however, speculated that the couple, who shares a son, would marry Dec. 22.

Newspapers reported that the couple also visited Skibo Castle during their visit to Scotland. The castle, a turreted pile on Scotland’s northeast coast, is a favorite backdrop for the weddings of the rich and famous.

MORE BEATLES MANIA: Decades after they broke, the Beatles have proven they’re still adored by fans worldwide. Their newest greatest hits record, “1,” has become the fastest selling album ever, with 3.6 million copies sold in its first week of release and more than 12 million sold in three weeks, Reuters reports.

The Fab Four are way ahead of boy band ‘N Sync, which sold 2.4 million copies of “No Strings Attached” in its first week of release in March. The British quartet, Paul McCartney, the late John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, split up 30 years ago.

JOHNNIE BE GOOD: This one would surely make Beethoven roll over. A pianist has filed a lawsuit against Chuck Berry, claiming that he’s entitled to half of Berry’s fortune for co-writing 50 of the guitarist’s hits, including “Roll Over Beethoven,” “No Particular Place to Go” and “Sweet Little Sixteen.”

Johnnie Johnson says that Berry took advantage of his alcoholism and misled him into believing that only Berry was entitled to the rights of his songs, the Associated Press reports. Meanwhile, Berry’s lawyer says the lawsuit will be “completely defended” and that there is no chance of settlement.
