Keith Urban is wondering if his fans are really getting the most they can out of his concerts. He says he sees people taking a ton of photos at his concerts and uploading them to Facebook and Twitter to share with their friends.

"I tend to probably think about memories more than I look in photo albums in the course of a lifetime," Keith explains. Keith brings his Get loser World Tour to Wichita on August 16th.

Taylor Swift’s fragrance will be called 'Wonderstruck.' That's the name Taylor and beauty company Elizabeth Arden came up with for the scent, which is based on her song 'Enchanted.' "I wrote the lyric, 'I'm wonderstruck, blushing all the way home,' for the song 'Enchanted' about the first time you meet someone," says Taylor. So, what does ‘Wonderstruck’ smell like? It's described as "a sparkling surprise of vibrant fruits, kissed by a bouquet of soft petals and a touch of sweet indulgence." Wonderstruck hits department stores in October.
