As everyone knows by now, the huge hit song from the 80's "we are the world" written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie, was remade this year to help the people of Haiti. The song debuted this weekend at the opening of the Winter Olympics in Canada. Even though the song went to number on iTunes this weekend and has already raised a lot of money to help the poor people of Haiti hit by earthquakes, not everyone is a fan of the song. Artists like Jay-Z have said they think there should have been a brand new song written, instead of a new version of the first "We are the world". Jay-Z thinks the first one was so special, it should have stayed untouched by a remix. What do you think? Here is the new version and the old for you to watch and vote on!
The New Song:
Lionel Richie20 June 1949, Tuskegee, Alabama, USA

The King of Pop Michael Jackson had a billion eyes on him yesterday. The star - or as his friends claim him to be, the biggest entertainer who have ever lived - passed suddenly away in Los Angeles on June 25 at the age of 50 of reported heart complications. Michael Jackson was just about to start his last concerts in London that he himself described with only three words at the press conference: "This is it". His death has raised a massive attention all over the world which only proves to us all how much his music and dance meant to the world; Michael Jackson was and will always be the King of Pop. The Jackson family decided to first have a private family service at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park for Michael Jackson followed by a star-studded public memorial service at the Staples center. Stevie Wonder, Lionel Richie, Usher and Mariah Carey were just one of the few who got up on stage to pay tribute to Michael. But the most touching speech was perhaps his dotter Paris, who pushed forth the few words "he was the best father you could ever imagine" as she burst out in tears. Let?s remember Michael Jackson as the best entertainer who have ever lived by watching some of his fascinating dance steps:

The hysteria around Michael Jackson's dead never seems to cool down. After a lot of back and forth, it now seems that the Michael Jackson memorial service at the Staples Center today will take place and will be a star-studded affair. Everyone from Mariah Carey, Usher and Stevie Wonder to Lionel Richie, Diana Ross and Martin Luther King III has promised to be there. Michael Jackson's long time friend Elizabeth Taylor won't join the memorial though, as she claims it's too painful and that she "cannot be part of the public whoopla." Debbie Rowe, mother to the two eldest children, won't take part either. Moreover, the family has decided to provide a free live video feed to networks so it would be televised everywhere. Fans without tickets to the memorial are being asked to stay away from downtown Los Angeles and watch the service on television. Some lucky fans were yesterday chosen by random lottery for Jackson's memorial and arrived at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles to pick up their tickets. (Source: CNN)

There was so much excitement at the Brit Awards show last night, we don't really know where to begin! Taylor Swift showed that she is a stylestar as well as a superstar singer in her sparkling little Kaufman Franco dress with Christian Louboutin heels. A sick Katy Perry killed it on the red carpet in her rubber and leather Hello Kitty outfit, but embarressed herself by throwing up backstage straight after receiving her award! Speaking about rubber, check out Lady Gaga's latest latex creation and her performance with the Pet Shop Boys:
