- Pop singer Nelly Furtado says she will donate $1 million she received from the Gaddafi family to perform a 2007 concert. Furtado is just one of many stars who accepted large sums of money to perform for the Libyan dictator. Mariah Carey, Usher and Beyonce were among other stars who performed at the request of Gaddafi's family.

- Trent Reznor is half way to an EGOT. The Nine Inch Nails mastermind took home the Academy Award for Best Original Score for his haunting work on "The Social Network." Randy Newman won for Best Original Song for "We Belong Together" from "Toy Story 3." It was his second win in 20 nominations.

- Rapper Juvenile was arrested on Saturday night in Louisiana for marijuana possession and driving with a suspended license. It's his third arrest on drug-related charges.
