ROCK HALL ANNOUNCES INDUCTEES

NEW YORK (AP) -- Maybe, just maybe, Bill Withers will sing at his Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction. Withers has not performed publicly in decades. He tells Rolling Stone he wants to play but he doesn't want to be "one of those old guys that sounds like a gerbil trying to give birth to a hippopotamus." He says he's going to try singing in the coming months and then make a decision. Billie Joe Armstrong says he had to take a walk when he found out Green Day would be inducted. Joan Jett says she's still collecting her thoughts after the news that she'll be inducted and "the feeling is surreal." The other inductees are Ringo Starr, Paul Butterfield, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Lou Reed. The "5" Royales will be inducted as an early influence. The Rock Hall inductions are April 18 in Cleveland.

ASHANTI TESTIFIES

NEW YORK (AP) -- Ashanti says she was "disgusted" and "absolutely scared." The comments came in testimony in the trial of fan Devar Hurd. Ashanti says she learned in July 2013 that a fan who had been convicted of stalking had since been tweeting her X-rated messages and posed for a photo with her sister. She says she was at a birthday dinner for her mother when another fan pointed out via Twitter that Hurd was the man in a photo with her sister from a 2012 event. Ashanti says she then realized that Hurd was behind Twitter accounts that had sent her more than 100 explicit, unwanted messages in less than a year. Hurd is charged again with stalking Ashanti and her family.

IGGY AZALEA TOPS GOOGLE'S LIST OF MOST-SEARCHED MUSICIAN

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. (AP) -- Iggy Azalea is the most Googled musician of 2014. Google reports Lorde (LORD) was second, followed by Sam Smith and Meghan Trainor. While you'd think Beyonce' would be a Google search term, she didn't make the top 10 -- but her sister, Solange Knowles, was number five. Nicki Minaj was sixth, followed by "Weird Al" Yankovic, Sia (SEE'-ah), Daft Punk and Taylor Swift. The most Googled song lyrics were "Say Something" by A Great Big World, with Minaj's "Anaconda" in second, Azalea's "Fancy" in third," "Happy" by Pharrell (fah-REL') Williams in fourth and Swift's "Blank Space" in fifth.

CHRIS BROWN'S BODYGUARD SENTENCED

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Chris Brown's bodyguard has received a suspended sentence for punching a man in October 2013. A judge in Washington sentenced Christopher Hollosy to 90 days in jail, but he'll stay a free man if he completes a year of probation. He was also sentenced to 24 hours of community service. Hollosy told police he punched the man for trying to get on Brown's tour bus, but the man says he was punched when he tried to take a photo with Brown. Brown had pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault and sentenced to time served.

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Blake Shelton chalks up another victory on "The Voice." The odds seemed to be against Team Blake heading into last night's seventh-season finale. Shelton had just one singer, to Adam Levine's three. But one was all it took for Team Blake to score a fourth victory on the NBC singing competition. Team Blake's Craig Wayne Boyd was the only country finalist. He edges out indie rocker Matt McAndrew. The finale featured a host of guest artists including Jessie J, Ed Sheeran and Meghan Trainor.
