In order to help salvage the Louisiana coastline from the massive oil spill, Lenny Kravitz is headlining a benefit concert to fund relief efforts.

The US government made BP responsible for the clean-up costs, but many believe that the area is so devastated that their money is just not enough. Local business and wildlife are both under tremendous strife.

Mos Def, Ani DiFranco and Allen Toussaint have also agreed to perform at the event at Mardi Gras World River City this Sunday.

Such a great cause.

Amazing!

Shakira is the latest act confirmed for the Glastonbury Festival this summer in the UK, taking the slot before Scissor Sisters and headlining act Muse.

"Shakira is not only an amazing pop star, but also socially and politically forward thinking," says festival organizer Emily Eavis. "She's working incredibly hard for good causes around the world."

She'll be joining Stevie Wonder, U2, Dizzee Rascal, Hot Chip, Vampire Weekend, Mos Def, Florence and the Machine, Snoop Dogg and N-Dubz at the festival.

We want to go!
