Last night, the bizarre ritual of loading a simple football game with world-stopping import and millions of dollars worth of advertising occurred, a little something we like to call the Super Bowl. The Giants won, Madonna rose from the grave and danced, M.I.A. flipped off the world and cursed, and the New England Patriots went home empty handed once again. And, before all that happened and went down, the ceremonies began, as they always do, with the National Anthem. Performed by former American Idol contestant Kelly Clarkson, and unlike the bloodcurdling recent version by Steven Tyler, this National Anthem went off without a hitch.

It was an interesting weekend for music news, with information leaking about the fact that the super-wealthy Madonna has a homeless brother, Amy Winehouse’s official death report has been lost in the mail, Loretta Lynn has become seriously ill, Justin Bieber and Maroon 5 will be joining the American Music Awards (God help us all), and more…
Check out our new roundup after the jump.

Kelly Clarkson’s new album is due to be released this September, and the pop star is making sure to promote it heavily. Last week, she appeared on “Ellen,” performing some of her old hits, and while fans certainly enjoyed the opportunity to hear those tunes again, we have a feeling that her next bigperformance might be significantly more dramatic.
Why? Well, according to the International Business Times, Clarkson may be taking the stage on “Americal Idol” once again this week.

Kelly Clarkson’s decline in popularity is proof-positive that emerging as the winning contestant on “American Idol” does not guarantee that one will go on to have a tremendously succesful recording career. She was fairly popular for a while there, but was quickly replaced by more talented and interesting pop stars like Katy Perry and Lady Gaga.
(In this particular genre, the terms “talented” and “interesting” are relative.)
However, according to AOL Music, Clarkson did manage to remind the country that she exists when she performed on “The Ellen Degeneres Show,” yesterday, March 6.

You know, as disappointing as modern pop music can be (except for you, Justin Bieber—you’re just so gosh danged precocious!), I can’t help but admit that my overwhelming, bile-stained cynicism concerning the music industry still gets out of bed hoping for news bits like this one. Exclaim has rightly pointed out that the newest leaked track from Kelly Clarkson’s upcoming fifth album sessions (don’t tell me you’re not waiting for it with bated breath like the rest of us, right?), “Naked Eye,” sounds like a direct, nearly note-for-note ripoff of the Arcade Fire’s “Rebellion (Lies).” Sigh. I knew there was a reason I got out of bed this morning.

After another day of playing rumor police for Breatcrave, here are the latest denied and confirmed stories that hit today’s headlines:
- In all her infinite wisdom, “American Idol” premier superstar Kelly Clarkson told the press on Tuesday that she was not a lesbian, but sometimes wanted to be one because “often times men are very hard for me,” she said. Apparently, Clarkson reported to AOL’s pop culture site, PopEater.com, that most recent interviews keep bringing up the gay question. Meanwhile, the singer maintains that she “could never be a lesbian,” but she would “rather have quality than quantity.” Could it be that all this time ‘Since U Been Gone” and “My Life Would Suck Without You” are ballads designed to woo women? Sounds like Clarkson has some soul-searching to do.
- Word has just been confirmed that the 51st Annual Grammy Awards will feature a one-time collaboration with Hannah Montana‘s Miley Cyrus and 16-year-old country crooner Taylor Swift. The duo will join an all-star lineup that includes Adele, Chris Brown and Sugarland on stage this Sunday (Feb. 8). If you’re a music fan that follows what I like to call the ‘mainstream dream,’ this is the show for you. They even through in Kanye for all the super-yuppies out there…
