STEVIE MOVED TO TEARS

Stevie Wonder

Stevie Wonder had to pull himself together after nearly breaking down in tears during a performance of a Michael Jackson song at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 25th Anniversary Concert.

With John Legend seated next to him on another keyboard, Wonder was singing his late friend’s song “The Way You Make Me Feel” when he suddenly choked up, hunched over and held his hands to his face as the music continued playing.

Stevie eventually got himself together and finished the song — and ultimately received a hug from John Legend and a huge ovation from the crowd.

The concert, which also featured Aretha Franklin, U2, Bruce Springsteen and Billy Joel, aired on HBO over the weekend.

BLAME IT ON THE HENNY

Ron Artest

Los Angeles Lakers star Ron Artest says he used to drink brown liquor during NBA games when he was playing with the Chicago Bulls.

“I used to drink Hennessy … at halftime,” Artest says in the Dec. 7 issue of Sporting News. “I (kept it) in my locker. I’d just walk to the liquor store (near the stadium) and get it.”

Artest was selected by the Chicago Bulls with the 16th pick of the 1999 NBA draft. He played there for 2 ½ years before his trade to the Indiana Pacers midway through the 2001-02 season. The Pacers’ infamous brawl with the Detroit Pistons took place in 2004, sparked by Artest’s foul on Ben Wallace. The Pistons center shoved him in return, which led to an all-out fight between both teams and fans.

“I see Ben, I’m on my guard now,” Artest told the Sporting News. “I’m always in the mood to fight him. … I’ll get suspended 10 games, 15 games (because) I’ll just fight him right there. It won’t go into the stands.”

BEYONCE AT THE TOP OF THE STACK

Beyonce

Beyonce led the field of Grammy contenders with 10 nominations on Wednesday, closely followed by teen country sensation Taylor Swift with eight, and both will compete for coveted album of the year.

Hip-hop band Black Eyed Peas, R&B singer Maxwell — making a return to the music business after an eight-year absence — and rapper Kanye West each earned six nods.

In a list that reflected youth and a drop-off of veteran super groups like U2, glam singer Lady Gaga and rapper Jay-Z each earned five Grammy nods apiece.

Swift, 19, whose “Fearless” album is the biggest seller in the United States in 2009, will compete with Beyonce for album of the year along with the Black Eyed Peas, Dave Matthews Band and Lady Gaga, who has gone from obscurity to worldwide fame this year with her debut album “The Fame”.

Both Swift, a big winner at the Country Music Association and American Music Awards last month, and Beyonce were also nominated for two other key Grammys — record of the year and song of the year.

“Taylor is a phenomenon in entertainment,” Neil Portnow, president of the Recording Academy told reporters. “She has really struck a chord with people. I am not surprised” at the number of nominations.

Swift has never won a Grammy, while Beyonce is a 10-time winner in her solo career and her earlier turn in the trio Destiny’s Child. Her latest solo album “I Am…Sasha Fierce” produced the hit singles “Halo” and “Single Ladies”.

The six nominations for multi-ethnic Los Angeles band Black Eyed Peas followed their chart-topping album “THE E.N.D”, whose singles “Boom Boom Pow” and then “I Gotta Feeling” enjoyed a record-breaking 26-week run in the U.S. charts.
