These girls had the right idea! If you're going to party, it might as well help out a good cause!
90210's AnnaLynne McCord joined forces with her sisters Angel and Rachel to benefit the St. Bernard Project, one of their favorite charities, by throwing a big bash in Bel Air!
AnnaLynne collected donations for the nonprofit, which helps rebuild the homes and lives of Katrina survivors, while her guests had a blast.
Nice work, girls! We'll be doing the same at Perez's 34th birthday party this Saturday! Donate now to help VH1 Save The Music!

Will Smith has been trying for quite some time (about two years) to get his hurricane Katrina drama called The American Can into production. At first he was going to produce AND star in it, but scheduling issues and delays have kept him strictly behind the scenes and he doesn't want to wait any longer.
So he wants to hand off the role to Denzel Washington!
When you hear what the story is about, you'll realize that it's a perfect fit (except for maybe Denzel's height). WARNING, there are spoilers, but it's a true story and it's already out there:

Brad Pitt can do no wrong!
He’s been working in New Orleans for years to help rebuild the city after Katrina, and has raised a huge amount of money — over $20 million, and that’s just this year!
The funds have been going to the Make it Right Foundation, who’s mission ‘is to provide high-quality, energy-efficient housing to families in need, and to improve the development of communities in which they live.’
We love celebs who give back!

In a recent interview, George W. Bush admitted that the low point in his presidency came when Kanye West called him a racist (in so many words).
After getting wind of it, Kanye responded, saying that he went through a similar experience when he was called racist after the Taylor Swift incident:
“I definitely can understand the way he feels, to be accused of being a racist in any way, because the same thing happened to me, where I got accused of being a racist. West replied, referring to the aftermath of his run-in with Taylor Swift last fall. “For both situations, it was basically a lack of compassion that America felt in that situation. With him, it was a lack of compassion of him not rushing, him not taking the time to rush down to New Orleans. For me, it was a lack of compassion of cutting someone off in their moment. But nonetheless, I think we’re all quick to pull a race card in America. And now I’m more open, and the poetic justice that I feel, to have went through the same thing that he went [through] — and now I really more connect with him on just a humanitarian level.”
You gotta love the empathy he expresses for Bush, who is someone that people rarely express any empathy for!
