Sales of Taylor Swift's song, "Ronan," have generated more than $100,000 for The V Foundation for Cancer Research.
Taylor was inspired to write the song after reading the Rockstar Ronan blog, written by Maya Thompson about her late son, Ronan. The boy died just days shy of his fourth birthday in May 2011 after a battle with neuroblastoma cancer.
Taylor gave a songwriting credit on "Ronan" to Maya Thompson, since her writings inspired the song. All of Taylor's proceeds are going to combat childhood cancer. For more information on The V Foundation for Cancer Research, check out JimmyV.org.
American Idol continues Wednesday night on Fox as the remaining 12 contestants perform songs with the theme of "Home." But the woman who actually went home last week -- Wild Card contestant Kristen O'Connor -- wonders what would have happened if last week, she hadn't been talked out of doing the song she really wanted to do.
Kristen and contestants Malaya Watson and MK Nobilette ended up in the bottom three last week, but Kristen says she thinks both she and Malaya suffered because of their song choices. "We both took advice from [the] production [team] on our song choices,…

Here are the highlights from the one-hour show:
Megan Rüger was first up; she sang Pink's "Just Like A Pill." In the final seconds, Blake and Usher turned around. Blake liked the fact that she's from Nashville, not to mention the fact that her voice became more powerful as the performance went on. He will serve as Megan's mentor.

Shakira and her boyfriend, Spanish soccer star Gerard Piqué, are already parents to one-year-old son Milan, but Shakira says she's ready for more. A lot more. In fact, she says she'd like to have enough kids to make up her own soccer team.
Speaking to Latina magazine, the singer and Voice coach says, "If it weren’t because of my music projects, I would be pregnant already. I would love to have eight or nine kids with Gerard -- my own fútbol team." "Fútbol," is, of course, the Spanish word for soccer.

Last week, Katy Perry sent a tweet that got a lot of people's interest: she wrote that she'd just helped deliver a baby in someone's living room. Now, she's confirmed that the baby in question was, in fact, her sister Angela's, and she's now an aunt.
Speaking to the Australian radio station 2DayFM, Katy said, "My sister gave birth in her living room, and I got to be, kind of like an assistant doula [DOO-la], which is, [in] a home birth, just kinda there for support. And also, I was like Scorsese, getting in there, filming everything!"
A "doula," in…

Katy Perry's ridden her "Dark Horse" into the record books. The song is number one for a fourth week on Billboard's Pop Songs chart, bringing the total weeks that Katy has spent at #1 on that particular chart in her career to a record 46.
The previous record for weeks spent at #1 on the Billboard Pop Songs chart was 45, which was previously held by Mariah Carey. Considering the fact that Mariah's been releasing hits for nearly 25 years, while Katy's really only been at it for six, that's pretty impressive.

Lorde kicked off her U.S. headlining tour Monday night in Austin, Texas, and it'll keep her on the road through the end of the month. If you're lucky enough to get tickets to the show, though, you may want to think twice before you scream "Lorde!!!!" at the 17-year-old Grammy winner when she's on stage, or if you see her afterwards by her bus.
"I much prefer being called Ella," the New Zealand teen born Ella Yelich-O'Connor tells ABC News Radio. OK, so then why did she end up choosing a stage name to begin with? "I basically chose Lorde…
