5 Things you should know about Sade

I am sure that every legitimate protester, who at least thinks that race has nothing to do with his or her disdain for Obama, is disgusted by the actions of Robertson. To that effect, many other tea partiers are partying as far away from Robertson as they possibly can. (Continue Reading…)

Dozens of recording stars converged on a Hollywood studio on Monday evening to add their voices to a song they hope will raise millions of dollars for Haitian earthquake relief. The lyrics and music are an updated version of “We Are the World,” a song that raised at least $30 millions for African humanitarian programs 25 years ago. Music legends — including crooner Tony Bennett and Barbra Streisand — stood with newcomers — including 15-year-old Justin Bieber and country artist Zac Brown — in the crowded studio Monday night.
