The National Basketball Association have announced that the 'Happy' hitmaker and his band N.E.R.D will headline the sporting extravaganza's half-time show on February 18 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, while the 42-year-old pop queen will take to the stage to sing the American national anthem prior to tip-off.

The split meant Fergie had to push back the release date of her album, which marked her return as a solo artist, because she was trying to deal with her emotions, but it was made harder by the fact she couldn't tell anyone what was happening.
After nearly thirty years since his first solo record Mark Lanegan has just released one of his very best and there's not many artists who can claim...
