Details of Elton John's 2015 Oscar Viewing Party Revealed


Michael Kovac/Getty Images for EJAFIf you can't be at the Oscars this year, Elton John's 23rd annual Academy Awards Viewing Party is the next-best ticket in town.  The gala event will be presented by the Elton John AIDS Foundation in Los Angeles on Sunday, February 22, and promises enough glamor to rival the actual ceremony itself.For the third year in a row, Chef Gordon Ramsay will prepare a gourmet meal for party guests as they watch a live telecast of the 87th annual awards at West Hollywood Park.  After dinner and an auction to raise money for the John's charity, Grammy-winner Nile Rodgers and Chic will perform, and DJ Johnny Dynell will be spinning tunes so guests can dance the night away.Elton's viewing party is the most successful fundraising event in Hollywood on Oscar night.  While actors are taking home their golden statuettes, the EJAF is raising millions of dollars to help people at risk of or living with HIV/AIDS.  Over the past 23 years, the event has raised nearly $45 million. Last year, the party took in $5.1 million and boasted a star-studded guest list that included Aerosmith's Steven Tyler; Heart's Ann and Nancy Wilson; Ozzy, Sharon and Kelly Osbourne; Taylor Swift; Sheryl Crow; Robert DeNiro; Jane Fonda; Whoopi Goldberg; and the Kardashian sisters.We assume Elton will be making a hefty donation this year.  According to TMZ, he's now raking in more than $500,000 per show in Las Vegas.  The 2015 leg of his Million Dollar Piano residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace began Friday and runs through April 14.Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Newly-Released Madonna Album Track Listing Reveals a Guest Appearance by...Mike


Interscope RecordsOver the years Madonna has collaborated with everyone from Babyface to Justin Timberlake to Britney Spears to Lenny Kravitz, but her latest collaboration may be her strangest ever.A song on her upcoming album, Rebel Heart, features a guest appearance by infamous ear-biting ex-heavyweight boxing champ Mike Tyson.  According to the album's track list, which was revealed on iTunes Monday, Mike appears on the song "Iconic."  The question on everyone's mind is likely, "Why?"  Tyson doesn't have any musical talents that we're aware of, so his contribution to the track is anyone's guess.Rebel Heart also includes Madonna's previously announced collaboration with Nicki Minaj on the track "B**ch I'm Madonna," and a song called "Veni Vidi Vici," featuring rapper Nas.  Alicia Keys plays piano on the first single, "Living for Love," but she's not listed as a featured artist.  The expansive album boasts 19 tracks in total.Rebel Heart comes out March 10, but six advance tracks are currently available for download.Here is the full track list:"Living for Love""Devil Pray""Ghosttown""Unapologetic B**ch""Illuminati""B**ch I'm Madonna" (featuring Nicki Minaj)"Hold Tight""Joan of Arc""Iconic" (featuring Chance the Rapper & Mike Tyson)"HeartBreakCity""Body Shop""Holy Water""Inside Out""Wash All Over Me""Best Night""Veni Vidi Vici" (featuring Nas)"S.E.X.""Messiah""Rebel Heart"Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.
