Rihanna is set to perform at the Grammys next week. The singer is up for three awards and has now been added to the list of performers on the big night. Her hit single “Disturbia” is up for Best Dance Recording, while her collaboration with Maroon 5, “If I Never See Your Face Again,” is up for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals. She was also nominated in the Best Long Form Music Video category for Good Girl Gone Bad Live. Rihanna joins previously announced performers like Radiohead, Jay-Z, Justin Timberlake, the Jonas Brothers, Jennifer Hudson, Katy Perry, Coldplay, Carrie Underwood and Lil Wayne, among others. Last year she picked up her first Grammy for her collaboration with Jay-Z on “Umbrella.” Forget the performances we’re looking forward to the dresses!

Patrick Swayze

Patrick Swayze

Cancer-stricken star Patrick Swayze has given up medical treatment. The 56-year-old ‘Dirty Dancing’ actor – who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last year – reportedly abandoned chemotherapy and other treatment when doctors told him there was nothing they could do to stop the spread of his disease. A family friend told the National Enquirer magazine: “There’s nothing more doctors can do for him. We are down to the wire and the goal now is to keep Patrick comfortable. His condition is inoperable and they have stopped the chemo. He’s still losing weight and he’s very weak. He’s taking morphine. That and the cigarettes seem to keep him functioning through the pain.” The actor, who recently said he was determined to fight his illness, was admitted to hospital with pneumonia earlier this month. He was released on January 16, but friends say the chest infection left the star weakened. In a recent interview, Patrick spoke about his prognosis and his hopes for the future. He said: “I’d say five years is wishful thinking. Two years seems likely if you’re going to believe the statistics. There’s more I want to do. Lots more. I want to last until they find a cure.”
