Randy Blythe - the lead singer of Lamb of God - has been released on bail from a Czech Republic prison, where he has spent the past five weeks. Blythe was arrested on charges of manslaughter in connection with the death of a fan in 2010 - Blythe allegedly pushed him off the stage and the man later died from injuries. Members of the band said Blythe is headed back to the U.S. and will release a personal statement next week.
Beyonce is joining the United Nations for a global campaign to encourage people around the world to perform individual acts of good. The singer will perform a song in the U.N. General Assembly Hall which will then be released as a video which the U.N. hopes will reach more than a billion people.
La Toya Jackson is getting her own reality show. Oprah Winfrey has tapped Michael's older sister for a series on OWN. It is described as a "candid look" inside La Toya's life as she juggles family, friends and business. It will air next year.
