Though noticably short on rock stars (Rob Thomas may pass for Steve Perry, but Joel Madden does not pass for Bruce Springsteen), Quincy Jones and Lionel Richie assembled an impressive array of talent for their 25th anniversary re-recording of “We Are The World” Monday night. Among those appearing on the single to benefit Haitian relief efforts are Akon, Will.I.Am, Beach Boys Brian Wilson and Al Jardine, Tony Bennett, Justin Bieber, Toni Braxton, Miley Cyrus, Celine Dion, Jamie Foxx, Tyrese Gibson, Josh Groban, Heart’s Ann and Nancy Wilson, Keri Hilson, Jennifer Hudson, Enriquie Iglesias, Wyclef Jean, the Jonas Brothers, Kid Cudi, Gladys Knight, LL Cool J, Katharine McPhee, Jason Mraz, Pink, Carlos Santana, Nicole Scherzinger, Snoop Dogg, Jordin Sparks, Barbra Streisand, Usher and Kanye West, who was undoubtedly on his best behavior after that Hope For Haiti snub.
While Lil Wayne has revealed he covered Bob Dylan’s vocal, the full singing order has yet to be revealed (we’re pretty sure Vince Vaughn redid Dan Ackroyd‘s part, though). Check out photos from the recording, which was shot in 3-D for release later this month, in the gallery below.
False alarm. After announcing her pregnancy in August, Celine Dion‘s husband Rene Angelil has revealed that their fertility treatments were actually not successful. “We are living the reality of the majority of couples who have to use [IVF]. The process can be long and arduous,” Rene said. Celine’s doctor announced she was pregnant via in vitro fertilization very early in the process, but the embryos transferred were not successful. “But today, we are full of confidence. Celine is more determined than ever.” Keep trying! Good luck! [Source: MSNBC; Photo: Getty Images]
Celine Dion just announced the happy news that she is expecting her second child, and in a new interview the singer’s doctor opens up about the lengthy process Celine and husband Rene Angelil endured to get pregnant a second time.
“You could hear her chuckling,” Dr. Zev Rosenwaks, who performed the in vitro procedure that made 41-year-old Celine get pregnant, said of the singer’s reaction to the news that the pregnancy test was positive. Dr. Zev also dished that the embryo she implated in Celine was frozen for eight years, from the first time she underwent the procedure, which resulted in now eight-year-old son Rene-Charles. After Celine’s run in Las Vegas ended, she came back to the doctor to try to have another baby and now – Voila! On the way!
“She is feeling well. So far, so good. I look forward to feeling the fetal heartbeat. Rene and Celine are both looking forward to a pregnancy that is a healthy one,” Dr. Zev said. Hopefully this Dr. Zev talks to Celine before she does interviews like this blabbing to People! [Photo: Getty Images]

Blige grew up in a Yonkers housing project, but after selling 50 million records world-wide she moved just a few miles away, across the Hudson to the leafy locale of Saddle River, New Jersey.

It’s a question you’ve always asked: does Celine Dion wear underwear on stage, or does she go The Full Britney? One lucky photographer got a peek in Mexico City last night, when the singer revealed why frenetic hopping and short, short dresses don’t mix. Then again, maybe the crazy Canadian chanteuse is down with giving snappers a glimpse of her pearly white: “I want them to say “Oh my…God! It was so good…so good! I want to impress them…you know I’m proud.” Maybe she can get a granny panty endorsement deal.
