Aretha Franklin has called off her engagement to William "Willie" Wickerson only three weeks after announcing their plans to wed. "Will and I have decided we were moving a little too fast, and there were a number of things that had not been thought through thoroughly," Franklin told Us Weekly in a statement. "There will be no wedding at this time."

The Queen of Soul, 69, had previously announced elaborate plans to marry Wickerson in Miami Beach this summer, with a reception aboard a private yacht. "We will not comment on it any further because of the very personal and sensitive nature of it. We appreciate all of the many well wishes from friends," Franklin and Wickerson added in their statement.

More than 20 years after his death, jazz legend Miles Davis is being honored by the U.S. Postal Service with his very own stamp.

This year, the "Kind of Blue" trumpeter will be immortalized in a collection of musically-themed stamps that will also honor the singer Edith Piaf, according to The Telegraph. They will be released in partnership with the French postal service, La Poste.

Miles Davis"This is a fitting honor," said Lee Barham, chairman of the steering committee for the Miles Davis Jazz Celebration. "Before Michael Jackson and Elvis Presley, there was Miles Davis."

Davis, one of the most innovative figures in bebop and jazz fusion, died in 1991 at age 65. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006.

Mary J. Blige upset over Oscars Best Song snub PDF Print E-mail

Mary J. Blige is upset over her Oscar snub, calling the Academy "mean" for only nominating two songs when up to five songs could be included in the category.

Mary J Blige

The R&B star's theme from "The Help," "The Living Proof," was a pre-nominations favorite, but the song was overlooked when the contenders were announced on Tuesday, along with Elton John's "Gnomeo & Juliet" song "Hello Hello" and Madonna's Golden Globe-winning "Masterpiece" from "W.E." Instead, the Academy selected Bret McKenzie's "Man or Muppet" from "The Muppets" and Sergio Mendes' "Rio" tune "Real in Rio."

Blige shared her disappointment with her Twitter followers, writing, "I'm so thankful for true fans like you all. It saddens me & feels like the Academy is being mean 2 only nominate 2 of the 5 slots..." Also missing from the nominations list is the critically-acclaimed tune "Lay Your Head Down," which actress Glenn Close co-wrote for "Albert Nobbs."
