Report: Neil Young Files For Divorce
It's splitsville for Neil Young. Rolling Stone reports Young has filed for divorce from Pegi Young, his wife of 36 years. She was a frequent musical collaborator and the inspiration for many of his love songs. Listen to "Such a Woman," "Unknown Legend" or "Once an Angel" and you'll be hearing about Pegi. Divorce papers were filed last month in San Mateo, California. Rolling Stone says a rep for Neil Young had no comment.

Miley Cyrus' Date Wanted By Oregon Police
Miley Cyrus' date is a wanted man. Cyrus took a young homeless man to the MTV Video Music Awards Sunday. Court records show 22-year-old Jesse Helt was busted for criminal mischief and criminal trespass in 2010, when he was 18. An arrest warrant was issued in November 2011 after he violated probation. He gained worldwide attention when Cyrus let him accept her award for video of the year. He used the platform to call attention to the issue of youth homelessness.

MTV Video Music Awards Ratings Down
With no twerk, there was no perk in the ratings for MTV's Video Music Awards Sunday. Last year, Miley Cyrus' twerking had people talking and tweeting. This year, the Nielsen ratings show fewer viewers watching the VMAs. Nielsen figures show nearly 8.3 million people watched the VMAs live on Sunday. That compares to more than 10 mil who watched a year ago.

Ludacris Honored At Bmi R-and-B/Hip-Hop Awards
Ludacris has been doing more acting than recording lately --- but he isn't giving up on music. He was honored recently at the BMI R-and-B/Hip-Hop Awards with the group's highest honor -- the President's Award. The award is a nod to Ludacris for his career achievement and his global influence on culture and the entertainment industry. Ludacris says he's "about to get right back to the music." He says it's his "first love" and what brought him success. During the ceremony, the broadcast rights organization also recognized the songwriters of the Billboard number-one singles on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay, Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs charts over the past year.

Rucker, Little Big Town To Announce CMA Nominees

Before the announcements on TV live from New York, Rucker will perform "Homegrown Honey," the debut single from an album he has coming out early next year. Afterward, he and Little Big Town will be in Times Square announcing more nominees. "The 48th Annual CMA Awards" will air live from Nashville, Wednesday, November 5.

Chuck Berry Awarded Polar Music Prize
It's another honor for rock-and-roll legend Chuck Berry. This tribute is as a laureate of the 2014 Polar Music Prize, one of the world's most prestigious music awards. Berry was ill and couldn't attend the ceremony in Stockholm. British artist Dave Edmunds accepted the award on Berry's behalf from King Carl of Sweden. The citation for Berry's award says, "Every riff and solo played by rock guitarists over the last 60 years contains DNA that can be traced right back to Chuck Berry." Berry sent a letter thanking the royal family and saying, his "heart is in Sweden."
