NEW YORK (AP) -- Carrie Underwood is a mom. She and her husband, Nashville Predators player Mike Fisher, welcomed a boy on Friday.

NEW YORK (AP) -- Whoever buys the Wu-Tang Clan secret album, "The Wu: Once Upon A Time In Shaolin," will be able to release 2103. Forbes magazine quotes producer Cilvaringz as saying the winning bidder for the album will be allowed to release it in 88 years. The Wu-Tang Clan is selling the lone copy of the album through the auction site Paddle8. Originally the group decided to let the buyer do whatever he or she wanted with the album, but they've decided it's an original rather than a master copy, like a piece of sculpture. Cilvaringz says all backups have been destroyed. RZA of Wu-Tang Clan says it's possible the buyer could release the album anyway, but given the amount of money changing hands, he thinks that's unlikely. There's no asking price but RZA has said they got a bid for $5 million.


LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Estelle feels about the Fox show "Empire" the way her mother used to feel about "Dynasty" when she was a kid. Estelle says her mother was obsessed with "Dynasty" and would shush everyone when it came on. When the producers of "Empire" asked Estelle to do a guest role, she jumped at the chance. Estelle re-recorded her song "Conqueror" as a duet with star Jussie Smollett. Estelle says the best part of her role was having long hair that she kept flicking around. Her episode airs tonight.

UNDATED (AP) -- Katy Perry is now selling Left Shark merchandise. A full-body hooded shark jumpsuit sells for $129.99, and a T-shirt featuring the shark sells for $25. Perry had two backup dancers dressed as sharks during her Super Bowl halftime show that became celebrities in their own rights because the right one appeared to know the choreography and the left one just acted goofy.


NEW YORK (AP) -- Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders is hoping her life story will make people dance, have fun, possibly cry and maybe reach for a guitar. Penguin Random House announced Hynde is working on an "incredibly frank" memoir for release September 8. It does not yet have a title.
