The Money Shot: Kate Moss, Margot Signs w/ Sony, Bruce's Broad Appeal and How Apple Ruined The Music Biz...

The latest headlines...

NBC chief says Apple 'destroyed' music pricing (Apple Insider)
MS: The NBC chief also revealed that in addition to more pricing flexibility, his firm was also seeking a cut of Apple hardware sales -- such as the iPod and iPhone -- which were capable of viewing content downloaded from the iTunes Store.

"Apple sold millions of dollars worth of hardware off the back of our content and made a lot of money," he said. "They did not want to share in what they were making off the hardware or allow us to adjust pricing."

Kate Moss Gives Up Babyshambles Songwriting Royalties (NME)
MS: "The music is Pete's thing," the pal continues. "There is still a huge place in her heart for him and she is happy to see him doing better. Besides, he needs the money more than her."

Springsteen fans talking about their g-g-generation (L.A. Times)
MS: It's no surprise that people bring their kids to see Bruce -- the lyrical content is high-minded, and you can see a bit of generational pride on parents' faces as their sons and daughters stare in marvel at the sweep and stamina of what is arguably the best rock band in the world. But there is still something amusing in watching different generations digest the event. For young people, that wasn't Miami Steve Van Zandt -- it's Silvio from "The Sopranos." Max Weinberg? You mean the guy from the Conan O'Brien show?

Margot signs to Epic (
MS: The eight members of Margot & the Nuclear So and So's have recorded about 20 songs during sessions for "Animal!," according to Fry, who said 10 to 15 tunes may be added in January or February. "We'll narrow it from there," Fry said.
