And it's looking quite promising!

Simon Cowell and The Sun are working on a charity single to benefit Haiti relief and the stars are coming out of the woodwork.

Miley Cyrus, Mariah Carey and Jon Bon Jovi just signed on to cover the greatly anticipated cover of R.E.M.'s Everybody Hurts joining the already announced Susan Boyle, Leona Lewis and Rod Stewart.

"It's amazing these great singers are clearing their schedules to make this happen," said Simon. "I just found out Mariah has changed her schedule to be able to do this too."

The recording began this weekend with Cheryl Cole and British band JLS, but others expected to get into the studio are Take That, Michael Bublé, Westlife, Alexandra Burke, James Morrison, Mika and James Blunt.

"It says such a lot that everyone is working so hard to help Haiti," he continued. "This is something that really matters to us all, and I'm so grateful for the support we are getting."

Can't wait to hear it!

James Blunt Is A Loser!

| Filed under: AnglophiliaMusic MinuteJames Blunt

And, apparently, the singer's manager is a douche too!

Weird Al Yankovic is known to parody some of the best talent in music. We all recall when Yankovic did Eat It, his take on Michael Jackson's Beat It, and Fat, his take on MJ's Bad.

But it seems the You're Beautiful singer, James Blunt, wants no part of Yankovic's "flattery."

Weird Al is getting ready to release another one of his greatest hits CD this fall, but it seems he'll have to do it without Blunt's parody song he wrote and performed, You're Pitiful. Which is lame since reports state Blunt had originally agreed to allow the song to be parodied, but it was his record label, Atlantic Records, who pulled the plug.

Weird Al even took to his Twitter page yesterday to share his rejection notice from Blunt's manager.

Yankovic wrote:

"In case you were hoping for "You're Pitiful" to be included on my "Essentials" collection, sorry, this just in from Blunt's manager: Thanks for your email, but both James and I will never approve this parody to be released on any label."

Lame!

James Blunt, his manager and his label need to get a sense of humor!

James Blunt is doing well in the Swiss ski resort Verbier, where he has been living since January.

The local souvenir shops are selling special "James Blunt took my virginity" T-shirts for the girls that have slept with James.

Locals claim he has bedded a few hundred ski tourists already.

James Blunt is a god!
