M A Y A by M.I.A. — She's taken heat for her violent video of "Born Free" as well as trashing Lady Gaga, but M.I.A. has never been a wallflower. The music on her third release, M A Y A, is just as in-your-face. Pay special attention to "XXXO," where the British-Sri Lankan star screams defiantly, "You want me be somebody who I’m really not." Just try not to dance. Out Tuesday.
Lilith Fair — The 21st-century incarnation of the all-women tour has taken a lot of knocks, with shows canceled and superstar Kelly Clarkson dropping out. But it still has Sarah McLachlan, Brandi Carlile, Miranda Lambert, Emmylou Harris, Jill Scott, Mary J. Blige, and upstart Marina and the Diamonds. The tour hits Las Vegas on Friday, Irvine, Calif., on Saturday, and Denver on Tuesday.
