Home Celebrity Mary J. Blige: Rainforest This Week, AmFar Next

Mary J. Blige is one of the coolest performers out there. To prove it, she’s doing double time for charities over the next week.

This Thursday, Mary J. will join Sting, Elton John, Lady GaGa, and Shirley Bassey at the annual concert for the Rainforest Foundation at Carnegie Hall. Trudie Styler puts together this amazing show every other year, and has been for 21 years. Mary J, of course, has sung with Sting before, so there may be a duet on that program.

But then Mary J will o-“blige” AmFAR and be the special guest in Cannes next Thursday, May 20th at the Cinema Against AIDS gala at the Hotel duCap. Mary J finishes her shows with her anthem, “I See Colors.” The folks at the duCap have never heard anything so crazy. Be ready to be dazzled! Alan Cumming is the night’s emcee, and stars could run the gamut from Sean Penn to Mick Jagger to Naomi Watts.

PS Lady GaGa aka Stephanie Germanotta, is supposedly in Cannes on May 20th also for a daytime charity event. Hmmm…She’d be the perfect surprise guest at Cinema Against AIDS. I’m just sayin’…

Meantime, the word is out that Sir Anthony Hopkins and Antonio Banderas are skipping Cannes and the premiere of Woody Allen’s “You Will Meet a Tall, Dark Stranger.” By the way, Woody’s film is getting a special private dinner thrown by Chopard on Saturday night, rather than a big premiere bash. The thinking is that guests will still be able to head up to the Hotel duCap for Vanity Fair’s famous A list soiree…

  1. Sooooo…..

    The burning question is where is Hollywood in helping out Nashville???

    30 people have died, thousands are homeless, damage is going be over a billion dollars.

    Obama is ignoring it, Hollywood is busy with fake, look-good-to-the-right-people causes like Rainforest.

    I am not calling anyone out, but Clooney and company are awfully quiet on this tragedy at home. The only ones putting their shoulders to the wheel here seem to be country music.

    Would we have left Haiti to just the reggae musicians?
