Nicki Minaj tops charts; Bob Dylan and Dr. Dre added to Grammys; The Strokes release new single; Linkin Park concert canceled

By David Malitz

nicki minajNicki Minaj: No. 1 and platinum.

- After more than two months in the top 10 without reaching the top spot, Nicki Minaj's "Pink Friday" reached No. 1 on the Billboard charts. In its 11th week, the album also went platinum, with sales now totaling 1.04 million copies.

- An already impressive Grammy performance lineup has become more impressive with the additions of Bob Dylan and Dr. Dre. Dylan will perform as part of a tribute to acoustic music while Dre will team with longtime collaborator -- and likely Album of the Year winner -- Eminem.

- The Strokes released a new song yesterday? Have you heard? Do you dig?

- Linkin Park's concert scheduled for tonight at Verizon Center has been canceled due to an illness suffered by singer Chester Bennington.
