The Streets
British rapper Mike Skinner is on a course of super-strength medication after he was left battered and bruised by a crowd-surfing stunt on his farewell tour.

Today the cosmetic dentistry industry is booming. Bringing in millions of dollars a year, everyday joes can get procedures as intense and expensive as veneers or cheap and easy as Snap-on-Smile caps ($1,200 to $1,600). Pretty shinny teeth are so important to our culture that just about every drug store in America sells home whiteners, so why do some of the highest paid entertainers in the world still have horrible teeth?

Following are some musicians that might want to set up an appointment with their dentists:

Hot Chip
In the interest of keeping our readers' fingers on the pulse of the latest British wave, Starpulse gives you the 411 on the newest batch of hot songwriters from across the pond.

Joss Stone's early 2007 release, Introducing Joss Stone, was the highest debut for a female act from the United Kingdom.

Another Chris Martin Collaboration Is Axed

Chris Martin
Chris Martin's collaboration with Nelly Furtado has been mysteriously axed from her forthcoming album. The duet, All Good Things, was reportedly removed from the LP's track-listing on the orders of the Coldplay frontman's record company EMI.

A source told Daily Star newspaper: "Three days ago the order came through to remove it from her album. I don't know if Chris knows yet, but when he finds out he'll be furious. It seems EMI have a problem rather than either of the artists."
