This is a pleasantly surprising group of people!

Believe it or not, Elton John, Andy Roddick, Venus Williams and Billie Jean King all joined Mickey Mouse on Sunday at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.

Sir Elton was hosting the 2013 Mylan WTT Smash Hits exhibition with Billie Jean, and all of the proceeds went to AIDS charities, including his own!

Together, thanks to this tennis exhibition, the Rocket Man and this tennis great have raised $11.5 million for AIDS since 1993 when they started it!

This is such a brazilliant idea! And we’re sure having Andy and Venus there only drew more of a crowd because they’re incredible!

hillary clinton to be honored at elton john aids foundation 12 annual benefit

More than 20 years ago, Sir Elton John founded the Elton John AIDS Foundation in hopes of thwarting the terrible disease, and the organization has grown quite a lot over the past couple of decades!

On October 15th, the EJAF will be hosting its 12th annual An Enduring Vision benefit at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City, and it has a very impressive guest list!

CNN anchor Anderson Cooper will be hosting the event for the 7th consecutive year, and one of the major guests of honor will be Hillary Rodham Clinton!

The former Secretary of State will be given the Founder's Award for her moving speech in Geneva, where she famously said "gay rights are human rights and human rights are gay rights," and she's also being recognized for her efforts to reach the goal of living in an AIDS free world!

It's so great to see Elton John's organization taking on such an important issue and making sure it doesn't simply get swept under the rug!

Hopefully events like these will continue to raise awareness and get even more people talking about how we can beat AIDS, once and for all!

elton john appendectomy success recovery health surgery

Compared to performing with a ticking time-bomb of an appendix, we're sure that Elton John would choose the road to recovery any day! Plus, he finally gets to relax a little before he gets back to all of his adoring fans!

His appendectomy was a success!

He had the operation at Princess Grace Hospital in Monaco last Thursday! At 66, he had been playing shows while in pain and under

Elton John: 'I'm Grateful To Be Alive!'

elton john alive postpones summer tour appendix appendicitis health sick

When we first heard that Elton John was postponing summer tour dates because of appendicitis, we were bummed, but not really worried! That's such a common problem, we just figured he'd get it fixed and then be on bed rest for a while. No biggie!

It turns out, though, that Elton is grateful to be alive — because he had been playing his tour dates for a while with the undiagnosed appendicitis! That's SUPER dangerous, as it could have been poisoning him from the inside and he wouldn't have even known it!

Booooooooooo health problems! The world NEEDS Elton John to be healthy and fierce at all times!! What's so hard to understand about that?? Ha!

Just like the rest of his fans planning to see him on his summer tour, we have no problem putting aside our disappointment in not being able to see him, and would rather lift him up and wish him a speedy recovery! Appendicitis is no holiday, that's for sure!

Sharon & Jack Osbourne Honored: The Race To Erase MS Is A Race Worth Running!

| Filed under: Mel BElton JohnJack OsbourneSharon OsbourneKristin CavallariHealthCharity

The stars were OUT for The Race To Erase MS, and it was quite an event!!

We're talkin' Rod Stewart, Sara Gilbert, La Toya Jackson, Mel B, Lisa Vanderpump, Camille Grammer, Kristin Cavallari, and more!

They were all out in support of Sharon Osbourne, Jack Osbourne (who was diagnosed with MS very recently), and The Race To Erase MS in their fight against MS on a global scale!

Oh, and Elton John totally performed!! A-MAZING!

You know what? When it comes to the fight against MS, Sharon really hits it on the head: information is power! You have to study and read as much as you can and then figure out how you can fight back against a diagnosis! Never take no for an answer!

We're so inspired by all of this! We hope the cause keeps progressing like it has!!

britney spears leaves a dance studio in thousand oaks

Britney Spears is no longer a blonde, and we love it!!

The X Factor judge hit up a dance studio in Thousand Oaks yesterday, and once she was done dancing her fabulous butt off and and headed to her car, we almost didn't recognize her.

Miz Spears first debuted her brunette locks at Elton John's Oscar viewing PAR-TAY, and while her 'do was all nice and put together there — she rocked it messy after working out… but it was still looking good!

But to be honest, Britney can't ever look bad in any situation. After all, she is a goddess!!
