Adele makes impressive debut at No. 1 on charts; Beyonce donated Gaddafi money; Goodbye AllMusic.com
- Young British singer Adele easily captured the top spot on this week's Billboard charts, selling more than 350,000 copies of her sophomore album "21." It's the most albums sold by any artist since the late-November debuts of Kanye West and Nicki Minaj.
- Beyonce said that she long ago donated the $1 million she received from the Gaddafi family for a private performance. "Once it became known that the third party promoter was linked to the Qaddafi family, the decision was made to put that payment to a good cause," her spokesperson said. The money was donated to the Clinton-Bush Haiti Fund.
- AllMusic.com one of the Internet's best resources for all things music (hence the name!) is being folded into something called AllRovi.com.
