Hey BFFs, did you give any money during the huge telethon?
Can we all take a minute to give George Clooney a huge round of applause? The star-studded Haitian relief telethon he put together, Hope For Haiti Now, was a huge success! More than $57 million was raised, according to telethon organizers, and that number just continues to climb as even more donations are pouring in. Lisa Paulsen, president and CEO of the Entertainment Industry Foundation, the group overseeing the event’s funds, released this statement: “The public has set a new standard of giving for a relief telethon with ‘Hope for Haiti Now,’ and the donations continue to come in.” Read more
So much Disney star power in one vehicle. We can’t handle it!
Aww, it looks like the Disney Channel family really is as close as they all seem on TV. After last night’s Hope For Haiti Now telethon, the Jonas Brothers were spotted pulling out of CBS Studios with Selena Gomez, 17, in tow. Joe Jonas, 20, took over driving duty, while Kevin Jonas, 22, called shotgun and Nick Jonas, 17, chilled in the backseat with Selena. Wait a second — weren’t Nick and Selena romantically linked in 2008? We guess Taylor Lautner isn’t the only one who gets along well with his ex-girlfriends. There’s an epidemic of friendship going around between young Hollywood exes — and we’re happy to see it catching on! Read more
Look at this photo of Taylor Lautner — he’s the meat in an ex-girlfriend sandwich!
Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt weren’t the only ex-lovers reunited at last night’s Hope For Haiti Now telethon! Taylor Swift, 20, and Selena Gomez, 17, both bumped into their ex-boyfriend Taylor Lautner, 17, at George Clooney‘s all-star charity event — and things looked surprisingly good between the three of them. Since splitting in December, the Taylors have already been awkwardly forced into contact a few times, the first instance being at the People’s Choice Awards in January. But unlike Brad and Jen, Taylor looks like he’s still on friendly terms with his exes. It’s a rare sight to see Hollywood exes getting along so well, even at charity events. Taylor Lautner, you’re totally changing the game! Click here to read more & watch Taylor Swift perform!
Seriously, is that thing for a movie role? Come on, R-Patz!
A very scruffy Robert Pattinson was among the many celebs on last night’s Hope For Haiti Now telethon, and he delivered a pretty interesting speech about the role technology and social networking are playing in the Haitian relief efforts. Yes, ladies, he’s hot and smart. He spoke via satellite from London, and we have a feeling he took off shortly after so he’ll be able to join girlfriend Kristen Stewart at her Runaways premiere tonight in Park City, Utah.

Everyone’s least-favorite big mouth is one celeb that wasn’t invited to take part in the charity event of the year. Hm…can’t say we really wonder why!
Kanye, you might want to stop checking your inbox (mailboxes are so last year) because you are NOT going to find an invite to George Clooney’s uber-event – a Haiti telethon – on Jan. 22. You’re not on the list, dude! Your on-stage antics at this year’s VMA’s – you know, the moment when you publicly dissed America’s Sweetheart Taylor Swift and declared Beyonce should have won instead? – pretty much secured your reputation as a loose cannon.
