The Rolling Stones have given up on plans to release an album to coincide with their summer (13) tour because frontman Sir Mick Jagger is convinced fans don't want to hear new music live. The band's last release was 2012 greatest hits album GRRR!, which featured two new songs, and their last studio album was 2005's A Bigger Bang.
Jagger has revealed the rockers have been toying with the idea of making another record, but he fears fans now only want to hear the band's classic hits.
He tells USA Today, "It would be nice to have a new album, but people don't like the new album when you play it on stage. They glumly look at you. 'OK, it will be over in a minute.' It's not a good excuse, but it's the truth and has to be said."
However, guitarist Keith Richards hopes the frontman will change his mind about a new record once the veteran musicians conclude their upcoming summer (13) tour.
He adds, "The time to record a band is once they've been on the road a while so they're hot. We'll think about that while we're doing this (tour). The world needs more Stones records. So do I."
The band kicks off the 50 & Counting tour in California next month (May13).
Movie and TV star Kat Dennings has accomplished a lot in her 26 years, but the actress tells Hollywood.com that only recently did she achieve one of the greatest moments of her career — starring in the music video for Hanson's new single, "Get the Girl Back."
Before you crack wise, yes, it's that Hanson — the Hanson of "Mmmbop" fame, long hair, and young marriages. But the trio of brothers from Oklahoma hasn't stopped making music since their 1997 debut and their newest release, Anthem, hits stores June 18. It's their sixth full-length studio album (not counting the Christmas album you know you still listen to every year).
"I've dreamed of this my entire life," Dennings tells Hollywood.com of her role in the new video. "I've loved them since I was like 7 years old, and through the power of Twitter and the magic of the Internet, we became friends with each other. We've gone to dinner, all became friends. Taylor and I have sent each other books, no big whoop."

Dennings says she got the gig thanks to her friendship with the family. "[Taylor] asked if I would be in their music video. I didn't even let, like, the courtesy five minutes pass by after the text. I was like, 'Yes! Anywhere, anytime. I'll do it for free. I don't give a f**k.'"
The experience was just as amazing as she expected. "It was one of the best days of my life," she says. "My lovely friend Nikki Reed is also in the video, called 'Get the Girl Back.' Nikki and I are both girls that are being gotten back, sort of. My official name was 'cute girl' for the video, but I arrive with my platonic friend who wants something more."
