Brooks doesn't offer a launch date for his digital music sales, but anticipates having material available for download by the end of the month. The singer's reluctance to offer his music digitally stems from his objections to how online retailers -- like iTunes -- sell music.

The Travel Channel is putting Adam Richman's new food search series on hold after a profanity-fueled Instagram rant. The trouble began after Richman took to the social media site to blast critics who took issue with his use of the word "thinspiration" to describe his newly slimmed-down physique.

That's when the actor apparently unleashed on his critics with some expletive-filled jabs. While the Travel Channel did not say specifically that Richman's rant was behind the decision to postpone the Wednesday debut of his new show "Man Finds Food," some say the timing is suspect.
