Beyonce Serenades Cancer Ward


This isn't the first time Beyonce has done an amazing deed, but check out her most recent mitzvah: an acoustic performance of "Irreplaceable" at a Singapore children's cancer ward!

B stopped there before performing at the 2nd Annual F1 Concert last week.

Nice work!

Foreigner Return to Their Roots at NYC Show

"This band was founded 13 blocks up on Broadway so it's good to be home," said Foreigner guitarist Mick Jones, before the legendary rockers catapulted into a two-hour set at New York's Nokia Theatre Friday night.

Foreigner played everything: "Feels Like The First Time," "Cold As Ice," "Dirty White-Boy," "Hot Blooded," "Waiting For a Girl Like You," and a moving "Starrider" by Jones on vocals.

Fans at the show included some 1,500 die-hards, Jones' step-daughter Charlotte Ronson, and Kirsten Dunst, who sang along from her seat in the balcony.

But alas, no Foreigner set would have been complete without the band's 1984 staple ballad "I Want to Know What Love Is"!

Watch below as frontman Kelly Hansen gets the crowd to sing along. (Not as eloquently as him, unfortch!)

Bethenny Frankel Leaving Real Housewives of New York City?

We must admit.... We had a weird feeling that natural food chef (and Naturally Thin author) Bethenny Frankel was leaving Bravo's Real Housewives of New York City.

First, we asked her about all the reporting she was doing for Access Hollywood.

Then, we quoted her talking about a segment she was doing on The Insider.

Life and Style is now reporting that socialite Sonja Morgan will be replacing Frankel on Housewives for season three, although we know "replacement" won't be possible!!

We love Bethenny almost as much as Jill Zarin!!

Update: Phew!! Frankel has taken to her Twitter to dispel the report, writing:
"You heard it here:the rumors about me not being on housewives are false. you're stuck with me!!!xo tweeps"

Lady GaGa/Kanye West Tour Canceled

It was to be the biggest tour of 2009, but for some reason unbeknownst to ANYONE, the Kanye West/Lady GaGa "Fame Kills" tour has been called off!

Concert promoters Live Nation have just confirmed the sad news.

Think this has something to do with the ridiculous stint West pulled at last month's VMAs?

Was his damage that irreversible??

Mariah Debuts New Fragrance at Macy's

Looking good!!

Singer/actress/all-around mogul Mariah Carey hit Macy's Herald Square Tuesday to debut her new perfume line, "Forever."

We think the name would have been more relevant in say, 1996, but hey!

Do what you gotta do!

Britney Grabs a CD at Target

So many great records came out yesterday!!!

Between Paramore's Brand New Eyes, AFI's Crash Love, Alice in Chains' Black Gives Way to Blue, Mariah Carey's Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel, Barbra Streisand's Love is the Answer, Lynyrd Skynyrd's God & Guns and Selena Gomez' Kiss And Tell, there's no way to know what Spears picked up while shopping at a Los Angeles Target!!!

Our money is on Madonna's Celebration (Greatest Hits) though!

What do you think???

Melissa Etheridge Rocks In-Flight Concert

This is one of the coolest things we've heard about in some time!!!

Rocker Melissa Etheridge played a concert aboard a Delta jet full of cancer survivors Tuesday afternoon to raise money for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation!!!

"I think I've joined some kind of mile-high club," Etheridge joked.

The concert was part of Hard Rock Hotel's PINKTOBER month, which Etheridge got involved with after being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004. (Today, thankfully, she is in remission.)

"Raising awareness and raising funds for research: Those are two things that matter to me," Etheridge said.

So awesome!

The Premiere of Capitalism: A Love Story

Oh, man.

It's just not a Michael Moore movie until someone is held captive!

The Capitalism: A Love Story director arrived at the premiere of his newest flick Tuesday night at AMC Uptown Theater in Washington, D.C. with three actors portraying CEOs of banks that received bailout money.

Of course they were chained to each other and brought in via prison truck!

Can u say drama queen???

Footage of Conan O'Brien's Head Injury Hits the Web


Footage of Conan O'Brien's head injury during a skit on The Tonight Show last week has hit the web. And it's pretty difficult to watch!

The funnyman returned to TV Monday night after being in the hospital, and joked that, “I hit my head so hard that for five seconds, I understood the plot of Lost.”

Ha!

Click above to see him fall during a race with Teri Hatcher.

Brutal!

Britney Spears Releases New Song "3"

Britney Spears has released a new song titled "3" as a part of her upcoming The Singles Collection!

The hooky, electro-pop song, written by Max Martin, weirdly recounts Chris Brown's "Run It," and will be one of 29 Britney Spears' singles featured on the record.

The collection, due November 24, will be celebrating Spears' 10-year anniversary in the music industry!

Can you believe it's already been 10 years???

Check out the jam, here.
