Lana Del Rey is caught in the rain on the cover of this month's Complex. But that's preferable to where the singer found herself a couple weeks ago:

Caught in a storm of controversy following a hesitant Saturday Night Live performance.

But the artist, whose debut album comes out on January 31, shrugs off the rebukes. Correction: she doesn't even notice them.

“I’m pretty much switched off from it," Del Rey tells the magazine of the press in general. "What other people have been saying doesn’t have anything to do with me because I never gave any long interviews to anyone. Ever. Everything is basically fiction.”

Did you hear? Jane Carrey, daughter of beloved actor Jim Carrey, received a golden ticket to Hollywood on American Idol this week.

But the 24-year old still has a long way to go until she's considered one of the premiere celebrity offspring singers. That's right, there are a number of famous artists with similarly famous parents. We count them down below...

10. Hank Williams Jr. - Son of Hank Williams Sr. Loses points for being a narrow-minded moron.

9. Lisa Marie Presley - Daughter of Elvis Presley. Never responsible for any major hits. But her kiss of Michael Jackson at the 1994 MTV Video Music Awards was sort of a musical moment that will last forever.

8. Natalie Cole - Daughter of Nat King Cole. Who will ever forget the digitally-recorded, aptly-titled duet between father and child, "Unforgettable?"

7. Robin Thicke - Son of Alan Thicke. Has written songs for Jennifer Hudson, Usher and Mary J. Blige. Impressive!

6. Willow Smith - Daughter of Will and Jada Smith. Hasn't accomplished a great deal since whipping her hair all around, but is only 11. Still has time.

5. Jane Carrey - Daughter of Jim Carrey. Will move up a lot higher if she wins American Idol.

4. Jordin Sparks - Daughter of former NFL star Phillipi Sparks. Idol champion. Super Bowl national anthem singer. Broadway actress.

3. Chynna Phillips - Daughter of John Phillips. Would not even had made this list a year ago. But did you see Bridesmaids?!? A surprise top three entrant.

2. Liza Minnelli - Daughter of Judy Garland. Veteran of the song and stage industry, has won an Oscar, Emmy, Grammy, and Tony Award. Also, recurred on Arrested Development.

1. Miley Cyrus. Daughter of Billy Ray Cyrus. No Oscar, Emmy, Grammy or Tony Award. But advanced to the finals of our first-ever tournament of THG.

Brace yourselves, music fans. Courtney Stodden is back in the recording studio.

The 17-year old pair of breasts and her 51-year old husband, Doug Hutchinson, were spotted on Friday walking into a recording studio in Orange County, where Stodden reportedly spent the afternoon with two producers working on a new single.

"People have been contacting me all the time asking when my next song is coming out," Courtney lied said, refusing to reveal any more details.

A look at Stodden's Tweets from her studio session don't uncover many other clues about the track, either, as she simply wrote over the weekend:

While hardcore hits dominate my every move - I suddenly strip - & jump on top of a sexy sports car as I begin to wash it uncontrollably!

She later added: Smoothly shooting whipped cream into the erotic air and watching it as it lustfully lands on all the right places of my candy-coated body...

Speaking of which: if you show Courtney yours, she'll evidently show you hers. Good luck with that!

Bob Dylan is one of the most popular, respected, legitimate musicians in history.

Miley Cyrus, is, well... not.

But the 19-year old doesn't embarrass herself in the following new video, which features her covering Dylan's classic 1975 single “You’re Going to Make Me Lonesome When You Go.”

The track is off "Chimes of Freedom: The Songs of Bob Dylan Honoring 50 Years of Amnesty International," an album whose proceeds go toward that helpful organization. Make a purchase, donate today and take a listen to Miley's version of this song below:

Federal prosecutors have pulled the plug on Megaupload, a massive file sharing operation allegedly helmed by Alicia Keys' husband, producer Swizz Beatz.

Four executives were arrested in New Zealand and an indictment charging seven people with content piracy causing $500 million in losses was issued.

The indictment prompted hackers to seek immediate cyber revenge, with the shadowy Anonymous group claiming it crippled the Department of Justice.

The government site was inaccessible for hours Thursday.

"The Department is working to ensure the website is available while we investigate the origins of this activity, which will be treated as a malicious act until we are able to fully identify the root cause of the disruption," said spokesman Laura Sweeney.

The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) said it was also hacked in retaliation for Megaupload being shut down, but was back up Thursday night.

Beatz, whose real name is Kasseem Dean, was not named in the government's five-count indictment, despite being listed by Megaupload as its CEO.

The Beatz-master, who married Alicia Keys in 2010, was in recent talks to take a high-powered job at Megaupload, but a final deal was not reached.

Probably for the best in his case.

To think, you probably only considered the lyrics to "Party Rock Anthem" kind of asinine before now. If you even realized the catchy hip-hop/dance track had lyrics.

It does, and we're proud to present to you, below, a literal interpretation of LMFAO's hit single in Microsoft Paint form. Nicely done once again, Internet.

We previously brought you the music of Chris Brown set to MS Paint, and this is rather similar. Only more absurd, given some of the lyrics involved. Watch in awe:

Rihanna and Coldplay will perform together at next month's Grammy Awards.

The pop star, who is nominated for four Grammys including album of the year for Loud, tweeted the news to her followers Wednesday, calling it "BONKERS."

Coldplay is up for three awards. It's unclear what song the two will perform together, but they collaborated recently on Coldplay's "Princess of China" ...

While it's been reported that Rihanna and Chris Brown are hooking up again, that's far from confirmed ... but they are both expected at the Grammys.

Legendary Beatles frontman Paul McCartney was announced Thursday by The Recording Academy as another performer on the February 12 broadcast.

NCIS: Los Angeles star LL Cool J will host the annual music extravaganza, which will be broadcast on CBS from the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
