Enrique Iglesias Premieres Cameo-Filled, Behind The Music-Inspired Video
Enrique Iglesias is reissuing Euphoria with a DVD and bonus tracks, including the single “I Like How It Feels”—which would be a run-of-the-mill tour video if not for the famous friends featured.

Wilco And Blink-182: Rock Dads With New Albums
Jeff Tweedy of Wilco talks to Brian Hiatt about “dad-rock” in Men’s Journal. All three members of Blink-182 mention parenthood in individual interviews with Andy Greene for Rolling Stone.

Billboard reports that both Wilco’s and Blink 182’s new albums are predicted to debut in the top ten next week.)

Drake Returns To Acting With Role As Guy Who Knows Basketball
The NBA lockout may have Delonte West working at a furniture store (when he’s not doing charity work), but the season’s tie-in video games are still on schedule, and Drake is featured in a 2K Sports commercial giving a shout-out to “today’s Miami Heat.” Need we remind Drake that even his Young Money cohorts Cory Gunz and Lil Twist said (to MTV’s The Check-In) that the Canadian is no baller?

Jay-Z Raises Money For Scholarship Fund, Reconsiders Brooklyn
Jay-Z may rep for Brooklyn in his lyrics—and he may have a stake in the rechristened Brooklyn Nets, but don’t let that convince you he’ll be moving back to the borough anytime soon. At the charity carnival he hosted to raise money for the college scholarship fund he co-founded with his mother, he was asked about a potential move, and admitted he’d “been thinking about it” but concluded, “The prices over there are really high.” [The Observer]
