Paul McCartney joins 12.12.12 concert

Nov 16 2012, 9:02am CST | by

Sir Paul McCartney, Kanye West and Bruce Springsteen will all perform at a Hurricane Sandy benefit concert called 12.12.12 in New York next month.

Sir Paul McCartney will perform at a Hurricane Sandy benefit concert in New York next month.
The Beatles musician will star in the 12.12.12 show, to be held at Madison Square Garden in the city, alongside a host of other music stars including Bruce Springsteen and Kanye West.
Proceeds from the concert - billed as ''a showcase of music royalty'' - will go to the Robin Hood Relief Fund, set up to help the huge number of people in the Caribbean and US who have been stricken by the superstorm.
Also confirmed for the bill are Jon Bon Jovi - who is from New Jersey, one of the worst affected areas by the storm - Billy Joel, from Rhone Island, New York, another hard hit area, another New Yorker Alicia Keys and Roger Waters.
When the hurricane hit last month, Jon cut short a promotional tour of the UK to head straight back and see his family and help with relief efforts.
A source said at the time: ''He was really incredibly anxious for his family who were stuck in New York in an apartment and was desperate to be reunited with them.
''The family house in New Jersey was also hit quite badly and he needs to go back to assess the damage and what can be salvaged.''
Many other stars have made relief efforts, notably a 'Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together' telethon at the beginning of this month which featured Bruce, Jon, Billy, Christina Aguilera, Sting and Jimmy Fallon.
Madonna and Rihanna both announced they would play free concerts to raise funds, while newlyweds Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel volunteered to help pass out emergency supplies in New York. Lady Gaga has pledged $1 million of her money to the cause, while Gwyneth Paltrow agreed to be auctioned for lunch date to raise funds.

Aug 19 2014 9:00am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

You know how I always say that Kim Kardashian and Duchess Kate are so much alike? Well, they have something else in common: they won’t stop taking vacations. Even when they’ve literally been on vacation the week before, they’ll take another vacation. Vacations on top of vacations. Endless vacations. With little to no “work.” So, yes, Kim Kardashian is on vacation again. The only reason I’m not mad about it is because taxpayers aren’t funding her ...

Why 1999 Was the Best VMAs of All Time

Aug 19 2014 7:30am CDT | Source: Pop Sugar

The VMAs are this weekend, and while I'm excited about the upcoming show, I've been reminiscing about my favorite VMAs of all time: 1999. Chris Rock hosted, Smash Mouth and Blink-182 entertained during the preshow, Lauryn Hill was the queen of the moonmen, and Britney Spears joined *NSYNC for a medley of ". . . Baby One More Time" and "Tearin' Up My Heart." Fatboy Slim spun to "Praise You," Jay Z performed three of his hits, and the ...
