Buzz Bites (8/14/2009): THIRD EYE BLIND ARE NOT DEAD. THEY'VE GOT A NEW ALBUM, KINDA!

+ Third Eye Blind are still around, in case you're wondering. And they had a new album coming out, but it leaked all crazy-like on the Internets, forcing them to up the release date and repost the album in its correct format. Messy!! (Tripwire)

+ Here's a clip of Vanessa Hudgens talking about making her new movie Bandslam, though is it just us, or does she seemed completely under the influence of SOMEthing (besides AquaNet fumes)? (People)

+ P.S. in case you didn't already know, we're in love with Nelly Furtado. Here's an interview she did with MTV Tr3s recently, talking about the inspiration behind her brand new Spanish-language album Mi Plan. (Blogamole)

+ Teen trashion show Gossip Girl may just have earned some cool points, with Sonic Youth making a guest appearance in an upcoming episode. Hope they're gettin' paaaaaaaid. (Tripwire)

+ Demi Lovato reveals that Paramore's Hayley Williams (only three years her senior) is one of her biggest inspirations. Sooooo cute. (BuzzNet)

+ Here's Katy Perry being all cute and whatnot, gushing over how much she lurves P!nk (her show, her outfits), via Twitter of course! Amen, lady friend! Amen. (ICYDK)
