TEGAN AND SARA - YOUTUBE RESTRICTED MODE
UNDATED (AP) _ Canadian indie pop duo Tegan and Sara are crying foul that some of their videos are blocked under YouTube's ``restricted'' setting. The setting filters content that may not be appropriate for users under 18-years-old, but some artists have been pointing out that it seems to target L-G-B-T-Q-themed content.. The Calgary-raised sisters tweet that their video for ``U-Turn'' is blocked and there's nothing gay in it except them. They say their videos for ``Alligator'' and ``That Girl'' are restricted, but their -- quote -- ``super gay video'' for ``Be With You'' is still available. It shows a lesbian marriage proposal. YouTube says it's looking into why some videos are being incorrectly labelled.
CHUCK BERRY - FINAL ALBUM
Chuck Berry's family says they plan to reveal details about his final album this week because that was the plan all along. The Berry family has issued a statement in response to the inquiries about the album ``Chuck.'' Berry announced in October it would come out this year. The family says for months a plan was in place with Dualtone Records to release information and music from the album this week. They say they intend to continue with that plan as a tribute to Berry. He died Saturday at the age of 90.
KATY PERRY - RELIGIOUS UPBRINGING
Katy Perry says while she's known for the line ``I kissed a girl and I liked it,'' in her words, she also ``did more than that.'' Perry accepted an award from the Human Rights Campaign in Los Angeles Saturday. Perry was raised as a fundamentalist Christian, and says she was taught that homosexuality would land her in hell. She says -- quote -- ``I prayed the gay away at my Jesus camps.'' Perry says when she started her music career, she encountered gay people and realized they were freer and more inclusive than anyone she had met.
BROTHERS OSBORNE - ``IT AIN'T MY FAULT''
Brothers Osborne were pretty sure their song ``It Ain't My Fault'' would be a hit because they road-tested it first.
Singer T-J Osborne says people would respond to that song in concert as much as they would to ``Stay A Little Longer.'' He says it's more fun to play live now because ``It Ain't My Fault'' is out as a single and people hear it on the radio. It doesn't hurt that it's a song about alcohol, too. Osborne says most of their songs are about ``love and drinking -- the two things we experience the most.''
QUEEN - MONOPOLY
Queen guitarist Brian May confirms a Queen version of Monopoly will come out in May. He doesn't give any details on the game, and the box does not give any clues. May says it was ``a blast working on it - like making an album!''
NICKI MINAJ - HOT 100 CHART
Nicki Minaj has broken Aretha Franklin's record as the female artist with the most hits on the Billboard Hot
100 chart. Minaj broke the record when three of her songs entered the chart this week: ``No Frauds'' with Drake and Lil Wayne at number 14, ``Regret In Your Tears'' at number 61 and ``Changed It''
with Lil Wayne at number 71. That gives Minaj 76 entries on the Hot 100 chart, beating out Franklin's 73. While it took Franklin 37 years to set her record, it took Minaj just seven. On the other hand, Minaj has been credited as lead artist on 32 songs and as a featured act on 44, while Franklin was the lead artist on all 73 of her songs. The top male artist is Lil Wayne, now with 135. The overall leader: the cast of ``Glee,'' with 207 songs that have charted on the Hot 100.
