Lady Gaga donates big to Hurricane Sandy relief, Nicki Minaj may have a new reality show, and more!
1.) Lady Gaga has decided to pledge $1 million to Hurricane Sandy relief, saying to the city of New York: “Thank you for helping me build my spirit. I will now help you rebuild yours.” We’re so proud of Gaga and hope others continue to follow her lead. (Little Monsters)
2.) Chris Brown recently launched his Symphonic Love Foundation, which helps create youth arts programs and provides grants toward art in public spaces. Now this is the Chris we’d like to see more often! (Rap-Up)
3.) Nicki Minaj must really dig reality TV — the rapper’s already a judge on “American Idol” and may even have a possible fashion reality show in the works! No word on which of her many unique personalities will star in it. (MTV Style)
4.) Check out Christina Aguilera, Jimmy Fallon, and The Roots performing Christina’s “Your Body” with only office supplies on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.” Using a stapler has never sounded so amazing. (Vibe)

5.) Rihanna was announced as the official face of Barbados’ new tourism campaign this past summer, but after getting a peek at the ad’s promotional images, you don’t actually get to see her GORG face at all. Barbados, why you playing with us?! (Idolator)
7.) We’re having a love affair with Prince’s very funky single artwork (complete with an afro and some psychedelic ’70s-friendly shades) for his new song, “Rock And Roll Love Affair” which drops Nov. 22! (Pink Is The New Blog)
10.) Bummer news for Lil Wayne: He owes a whopping $2.2 million after losing his lawsuit against music producer/filmmaker Quincy Jones III. Bummer news for Wayne fans: His I Am Not A Human Being 2 album release date (originally promised in December) has now been pushed back to sometime in 2013. Someone give Weezy a hug. (RapFix)
