Axl Rose rumored to be new singer of AC/DC

Unconfirmed reports claim that Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose is the new lead singer of AC/DC. TMZ released photos of Rose leaving a rehearsal studio along with members of the Australian classic rock group. Another unfounded rumor is that AC/DC will be the opening band on the upcoming Guns N’ Roses tour, which will hit Detroit on a date to be announced. AC/DC recently postponed several tour dates because lead singer Brian Johnson’s doctor told him that he could completely lose his hearing if he continued to tour. So far neither camp is confirming anything.

Big Sean and Jhene Aiko team up for new album

No foolin’: Big Sean will release a new album Friday —April Fool’s Day — the rapper announced on social media Sunday. The project, titled “Twenty88,” is a joint venture with his frequent collaborator Jhene Aiko. The album “tells the story of the highs and lows of a relationship, with insights into conflict, memories, love, sex and more,” according to a press release detailing the release. The album will stream exclusively on Tidal for 72 hours, according to the release. The duo will perform together Thursday on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” “Twenty88” features production by Detroit producer Key Wane, as well as Detail and Tommy Brown. Sean and Aiko have previously teamed on the tracks “Beware,” from Sean’s “Hall of Fame” album, and “I Know,” from his “Dark Sky Paradise.” Aiko performed with Sean at Joe Louis Arena in November and also joined him at the Red Wings’ home during a performance in June 2014. The album is Sean’s first since his 2015 album, “Dark Sky Paradise,” and Aiko’s first since her 2014 release, “Souled Out.”

Janice Dickinson has breast cancer

Outspoken former supermodel Janice Dickinson, 61, reveals that she has been diagnosed with breast cancer. “It’s still quite shocking.

I”m going to get through this. You betcha, kiddo. And I’ll be just fine. This is not a pity party. I’m Janice Dickinson. I’m going to stick around for a long, long time.”

Jon Lovitz and Jessica Lowndes are dating

Actress Jessica Lowndes and comedian Jon Lovitz took their romance public over the weekend. The “90210” star posted to Instagram that she’s excited to “finally share this secret” that she’s dating Lovitz, who is nearly 30 years her senior. “His hands are wise and tell a thousand stories” she said in another post, which she tagged #smitten and #hatersgonnahate. It appears the pair — which reportedly met on the set of “Hawaii Five-O” — is not only dating, but engaged. A day after posting that “there’s a new man in my life,” Lowndes Instagrammed a photo of a sparkly engagement ring without commentary. Lovitz confirmed the relationship (but not necessarily the engagement) by posting a photo of the pair Sunday to Twitter, saying “Easter with my bunny.”
