Contrary to the rumors floating on the internet this past week, Taylor Swift will not duet with Kanye West on the re-recording of ‘We Are The World.’ The new version of the song is taking place on Monday, February 1st – the day after the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, California and while Kanye may be there, Swift is headed down under to begin her Australian tour.
To mark the 25th anniversary of the song, the proceeds of this recording – which may include Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber - will go to Haiti relief funds.

The Jonas Brothers revealed the late Michael Jackson has become an inspiration to them when they introduced a dancing tribute to the King at the 2009 MTV European Music Awards on Thursday (November 5).
Nick Jonas said, “This year we saw the loss of the greatest pop musician the world has ever seen. We and MTV wanted to pay tribute to the true king of pop, Michael Jackson. His unrivalled talent has shaped the musical landscape, influencing artists old and young.”
Joe Jonas continued, “The first time we heard Michael’s voice was when our dad played the Jackson Five’s ‘I’ll Be There’. We were amazed by the one-of-a-kind talent. The way that he and his brothers came together to entertain the world has been an obvious influence on us.”
The oldest member of the band, Kevin Jonas, then took over. “Michael Jackson influenced every listener and every future performer with a talent the world had never seen before. As a writer, as a singer, as a dancer and as a performer he was the best.”
Michael Jackson did have the power to inspire even those who really didn’t have the chance to experience those decades when Jackson ruled the world with the Jackson Five and Thriller. Good job, Jonas!!
