"She works hard for the money," Donna Summer once sang, and just as it was the case in 1983, pop stars these days have to work their butts off to earn those album purchases, downloads and concert ticket sales in this age of YouTube, X-Box and Angry Birds.
But while some singers identify with the Protestant work ethic espoused by Donna, there are others who, as Bruno Mars puts it, “don’t feel like doing anything [and] just wanna lay in my bed.” And it’s not always only those who are hardworking who find success, as the popularity of Bruno proves. Sometimes you can have your cake and eat it.
So, who’s working hard and who’s not? In the spirit of Christmas, we decided to put together a pop star naughty and nice list for Santa.

It turns out Christiane Amanpour's big-time career 180 -- she went from being CNN's chief foreign correspondent to anchoring ABC's Sunday talker "This Week" -- was short-lived. On Tuesday (Dec. 13), Amanpour announced that she was stepping down from the talk show gig to return to CNN and field reporting. She will, however, continue to do some work for ABC -- including primetime specials.
"It's been an incredible experience to have had a ringside seat to democracy in action at This Week," says Amanpour in a statement. "It's been an incredible honor to anchor such a prestigious program and I thank all of you who have helped me on that journey."
The official word is that Christiane Amanpour wants to get back into reporting from the field — not that This Week’s ratings have slipped. She’ll become a roving Global Affairs anchor hosting six prime time specials a year, along with work on other ABC News shows. In addition, she’ll anchor a new show about global affairs on CNN International. Meanwhile George Stephanopolous moves back to the Sunday talk show in time for the political election season, while he continues his job as co-host of Good Morning America. Amanpour says that her new role ”is groundbreaking, bold and very different!” CNN Worldwide President Jim Walton was also effusive in his praise for Amanpour, saying that she “has been synonymous with international reporting and with CNN for many years. We could not be happier that through this unique arrangement with ABC News her experience and global perspective are returning to »
