The Irish rock band U2 cemented its position atop the music universe last night as the band swept the 48th annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, winning five awards, including album of the year and song of the year. "This is really a big, big night for our band," said lead singer Bono, in a leather jacket and white cowboy hat. "There's always the possibility with rock music that it might just amount to a little more than entertainment, on occasion, and you might be able to communicate some honest feelings."

It's pretty easy to keep your mouth shut when you stand next to Bono for 25 years. By the same token, it's also pretty easy to become a good listener. The first reason is why the Edge, the guitarist for U2, has long projected the same poker-faced presence on stage as Charlie Watts from the Rolling Stones. The second reason is why he is now assuming an atypical role as spokesman for a charity benefiting the beleaguered musicians of New Orleans. "I didn't ask Bono for advice, no, but I have been influenced by watching him and inspired as well," said David Evans, who in his youth picked up his now-famous nickname for the angular cut of his profile.

RECORD OF THE YEAR "We Belong Together," Mariah Carey "Feel Good Inc.," Gorillaz featuring De La Soul "Boulevard of Broken Dreams," Green Day "Hollaback Girl," Gwen Stefani "Gold Digger," Kanye West MY PICK / / "Boulevard of Broken Dreams." This is one of the few bright pop-rock tracks of last year with lyrical substance and a good groove. The blistering, dramatic ending is nice, too. But Mariah Carey may snag this one, because "We Belong Together" was such a massive smash with an easy melody that resides in your head.

The new tour is called Vertigo, but it might well be rechristened Hysteria in the wake of frenzied reports from fans frustrated by last week's presale of tickets through U2's Web site. Days after an Internet sale of tickets to fans who paid $40 each to join U2.com on the promise of priority access to "some of the best seats available," throngs are wailing that they still haven't found what they're looking for. "People are really tweaked about this," says Steve Rossier, 37, of San Diego, who joined U2.com in hopes of landing prime seats but came away empty-handed.

Afeeling is so much stronger than a thought," Bono declares in "Vertigo," the deliciously dizzy opening track on U2's triumphant new album, and the song is, indeed, pure feeling - an adrenaline rush that, like a classic Bruce Springsteen road anthem, makes you want to roll down the window and let the wind blow back your hair. As Bono suggests, there's nothing in the lyrics that explains why you should feel so uplifted - the song's strength comes solely through the glorious self-affirmation in the Edge's glittering guitar lines, the rhythm section's driving beat and Bono's impassioned vocal.

Star Jones, co-host of ABC's The View, married banker Al Reynolds in a star-studded Park Avenue bash. Notables ranging from Spike Lee to Sen. Hillary Clinton packed into St. Bartholomew's Church Saturday to watch Jones, 42, who wore a a designer strapless wedding dress with a 27-foot train, exchange vows with Reynolds. "The train was so long it took about seven people to carry it," said friend and guest Valerie Simpson, songwriter and half of the R&B duo Ashford and Simpson. With songstress Patti LaBelle performing, and a bridal party including Natalie Cole, Vivica A. Fox and Holly Robinson Peete, the storybook wedding lasted until 8 p.m. before moving to the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel for an equally celebrity-heavy reception.
