· According to People.com, Britney Spears' former "manager" Sam Lutfi has agreed to stay away from the pop star through July 31, it was revealed at a Los Angeles court Wednesday.

· Alicia Keys kicks off her North American tour this Saturday.

· The RZA and System bassist Shavo Odadjian will release an album as Achozen. Their motto? "Many shall come, only a few shall be Achozen." So very 36 Chambers.
