Here we are, it’s September already — how in the hell did that happen?  Well, whatever; lets get into the goods I’m following lately.

Rihanna is bouncing back quickly.  She’s getting set to release a new album, titled Loud, on November 2nd

MTV has a list of the best musician aplogies.  The latest?  Kanye apologizing to Taylor Swift via twitter

Mark David Chapman, the guy convicted of killing John Lennon, is up for parole for the sixth time.  We’re just months short of the 30th anniversary of the death of Lennon. 

Google versus Apple is slowly building.  Have we ever seen this before?  Two major companies slowing building their companies for direct competition?  These guys are practically mirroring each other.  The latest is Google launching a music service — should iTunes be worried?

SongMeanings released SMixtapes; a feature for users to build mixtapes and playlists to share throughout the site.  It’s pretty awesome (cheap plug, I know).

iTunes LogoLala is getting set to close its’ doors at the end of the month. Lala, the music streaming and online music retail site, was purchased by Apple a few months back. The service published a shut down notice on its front page last week.

Lala users will be sad, I’m sure, but rumors are circulating about the possibilty of iTunes to fill the void Lala is leaving behind.  It iTunes announcement could come as soon as next month during the company’s Worldwide Developer Conference in San Francisco. Apple typically uses this venue to make major announcements.
