Gwyneth Paltrow is reportedly in talks to sign a record deal

 The actress unveiled her voice in the movie ‘Country Strong’ and has impressed in recent months with a series of live performances leading to her to start negotiations with Atlantic Records about releasing a country album. A source told the New York Post newspaper: ‘Gwyneth’s agents have been talking to a number of labels about landing her a substantial record deal. Those who have heard the music say it’s country pop. In recent weeks there have been discussions with Atlantic. Gwyneth is a very different name for Atlantic, and one who brings a lot of recognition.” If she does sign, the ‘Iron Man ‘ star would be able to count Sean Paul, B.o.B, James Blunt and Kid Rock among her label mates. Gwyneth ‘ who is married to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin ‘ most recently performed at the Oscars, singing a rendition of nominated song ‘Coming Home’ from ‘Country Strong’. She also duetted with Cee Lo Green at the Grammy Awards, with the pair performing a version of his hit ‘Forget You’. At the Oscars last month, the 38-year-old blonde revealed she wanted to work with Jay-Z ‘ who she and Chris are close friends with. In an interview on the red carpet, she said: “I think Jay-Z and I would be a good combination. He is a genius – and I’m his biggest fan.”

Adam Lambert, Katy Perry Headline “Y100 Jingle Ball” Concert.  Y100, Miami’s biggest music station and one of the most popular in the country, has assembled the year’s biggest radio chart-toppers for this year’s “2010 Y100 Jingle Ball.” This year’s show will feature headliners Katy Perry and Adam Lambert, among others. Katy Perry is sure to perform some of her biggest hits from her new “Teenage Dream” album, including the #1 title track and “California Gurls.” She last performed at the Y100 “Jingle Ball” in 2008, in support of her “One of the Boys” album. The “Jingle Ball” is just one of the many appearances she has lined up this year before she kicks off her “California Dreams” world tour in February. Adam Lambert is currently on his own successful world tour in support of his “For Your Entertainment” album. He’ll take the stage in South Florida for the second time in less than three months as part of the “Jingle Ball,” and by popular demand too. He was #1 on the radio station’s poll as to who listeners wanted to see at the show. He hosted last year’s “Y100 Jingle Ball” along with “Gossip Girl” star Leighton Meester, but did not perform. Selena Gomez will take the stage for the first time to perform hits from her album “A Year Without Rain,” while B.o.B. will also make his “Jingle Ball” debut performing his smash debut singles from this year, including “Airplanes” with Hayley Williams and “Nothin’ On You” with Bruno Mars. Taio Cruz also makes his first “Jingle Ball” appearance, thanks to his hit singles off his “Rokstarr” album, including the #1 “Break Your Heart” and “Dynamite.” Jay Sean is also “Down” for the party for the first time, sure to party like its “2012.” Flo Rida returns for another year, having performed at last year’s concert, while Enrique Iglesias makes his return to the “Jingle Ball” this year. Train and The Script, offering some much-need rock sounds to the proceedings, will also perform. Tickets for the 2010 “Y100 Jingle Ball” are currently in pre-sales and will go on sale to the general public this weekend.
