- Quincy Jones and Lionel Richie are planning to record a 25th anniversary remake of "We Are the World" to benefit relief efforts in Haiti. The pair are calling on the vast pool of pop talent that will be in Los Angeles for next weekend's Grammy Awards, inviting artists to join them at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles on Monday, Feb. 1 to celebrate the song's anniversary. Artists invited so far include Usher, Natalie Cole, and John Legend. More details are forthcoming.

- Beyoncé has signed on for Friday night's star-studded "Hope for Haiti" benefit telethon and will be joining hubby Jay-Z for his performance with Bono and the Edge of U2. "Hope For Haiti" airs at 8 p.m. Friday on all major networks.

- Mystikal is home after serving a six-year prison sentence for attacking a hairstylist he accused of stealing from his bank account. The New Orleans rapper says he has plenty of new material ready to record.

Good job, Quincy!

I would like to predict the participation of Sheryl Crow and John Mayer in that event, both of whom would play the opening of a Tastee-Freeze if there was a camera to be found.
