Kristen Stewart introduced Jon Bon Jovi at the 12-12-12 Concert For Sandy Relief, and the New Jersey rocker proceeded to bring the house down at MSG.

On the road doing press for On the Road, Stewart made a surprise appearance in New York to make a plea for donations to the ongoing relief efforts.

"She flew in from California just to be here tonight because she wanted to help out," Master of Ceremonies Billy Crystal told the sellout crowd Wednesday.

"She got here in three seconds because that's what vampires do when they fly at night, they go very fast. Please welcome, a fantastic young actress, Kristen Stewart!"

Britney Spears' earnings edged Taylor Swift's to make her the top-earning woman in music over the past year by a whisker - and not strictly due to album sales.

Records, her X Factor gig, endorsements and a perfume line netted Britney Spears $58 million last year; Taylor was a close second with an estimated $57 million.

A contract with CoverGirl cosmetics, her own line of fragrances, countless hit songs and massive celebrity gossip attention made 2012 Swift's year.

Rihanna earned an estimated $53 million to put her at No. 3, two spots up from last year, followed by Lady Gaga, who fell from No. 1 in 2011 with $52 million.

The New York City area brought in the big guns past night.

In addition to Bruce Springsteen's performance, Billy Joel thrilled his hometown crowd at Madison Square Garden as part of the 12-12-12 Concert for Sandy Relief.

In addition to "New York State of Mind," the acclaimed singer-songwriter-pianist pounded out "Movin' Out" and "River of Dreams." Check out the latter below:

Springsteen, Joel and a Nirvana reunion? It was a good night to be at MSG, even if those musical legends were brought together by a hurricane tragedy.

Millions upon millions have been raised to date.

New Jersey's #1 ambassador (with apologies to Chris Christie, who would probably agree with us), Bruce Springsteen, rocked the 12-12-12 Concert for Sandy Relief last night.

The Boss kicked off the four-and-a-half-hour-plus show - which also featured a Nirvana reunion - with "Land of Hope and Dreams," "Wrecking Ball" and "City of Ruins."

"For 25 years, if you go to Asbury [Park] in the summer, and there was no one on its beaches, no one on its boardwalk," Springsteen said in introducing "City of Ruins."

"Then, over the past decade, thanks to an arts community, thanks to the gay community, thanks to people who lived there and toughed it out, the town has had a renaissance."

Paul McCartney helped stage a Nirvana reunion last night in NYC.

During the 12-12-12 concert to benefit Hurricane Sandy relief efforts in the region, McCartney recalled how "recently some guys asked me to jam with them."

Those guys turned out to be Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic.

"The penny finally dropped that I was in the middle of a Nirvana reunion" he said before Nirvana's first-ever live performance of "Cut Me Some Slack" with Paul on vocals.

Watch their performance below!

Courtney Love, of course, was not a fan of McCartney standing in for Kurt Cobain ... although she said, "if it were John [Lennon] it would have been cool."

Come on. It's still kind of cool.

Wallace, who was listed at 6'1" and 395 lbs., was struck a total of four times in a drive-by shooting by a still-unknown assailant on Los Angeles' Wilshire Blvd.

He was only 24.

As he sat in the passenger seat of a Chevy Suburban, Biggie was ambushed by bullets from the car alongside him. The first three, it turns out, were not fatal:

The 2013 Grammy Award nominations came out last night - and that sound you heard soon afterward was the angry wails of Justin Bieber, One Direction and Carly Rae Jepsen fans.

None of these artists were nominated in a single category.

And Bieber's manager, Scooter Braun, had taken to Twitter and expressed his anger over his client's snub.

"I just plain DISAGREE," Braun wrote. "The kid deserved it. Grammy board u blew it on this one. this time he deserved to be recognized and I dont really have any kind nice positive things to say about a decision i dont agree with.

Braun added:

"to all those nominated...you do deserve it. You worked hard and u earned it. Just feel like so did JB."

Jay-Z, Kanye West, Fun. Mumford & Sons and Frank Ocean all led the way with six nominations.

But should Bieber have nabbed at least one? What do you think?
