Morning click: Jay-Z skips "the World," Knack frontman dies
- Jay-Z was one of pop music's numerous A-listers who chose not to take part in the new "We Are the World" remake organized to benefit earthquake relief in Haiti. How come, Jay? "I don't ever wanna see it touched," the rap icon tells MTV. "I know the plight and everything that's going on in Haiti. I applaud the efforts... It was a valiant effort, but for me, it's gonna be untouchable." ( For what it's worth, we agree!)
- Sad news: Doug Fieger, leader of the power pop band The Knack, died Sunday after a battle with cancer. Best known for the 1979 hit "My Sharona," Fieger was 57.
