Positive Paparazzi: It's Happened... Bono Got An Award For Being Bono
Don't believe me? Well, TAKE A LOOK, and see for yourself. Yes, he won an award for being himself (and there's an actual good, humanitarian inspired reason, I promise). The day I get an award for being myself, I'm throwing in the chips and retiring to Boca or that Harry Potter place in Universal. You go, Bono.
Okay, here we have a celeb honoring other
Appropriately, Vampire Diaries star, Candice Accola, launched Bite Back for a Cure, the Tick-Borne Disease Alliance’s (TBDA) national campaign to build support for the fight against tick-borne diseases. Ouch! That smarts. In a good way. Hehe.
Mario Lopez ALSO won a humanitarian award, and like Lopez himself, it's very pretty.
Get this: Some really reasonable fans of One Direction were keeping the band awake while they screamed like banshees outside their hotel. 1D member Liam Payne tweeted that he was frustrated with not being able to, um, sleep, and the fans got, like REALLY PEEVED BOUT THAT. Payne, being the upstanding guy he is, apologized and said how grateful he was to be where he is. Moronic fans notwithstanding.
Rachel Ray's $100K challenge for the ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) has helped 18,000 so far and it's only been a month since it started! Hey, hay, Rachel Ray, hay, HAY.
Ms. Ray isn't the only one helping our furry friends this week. True Blood star Kristin Bauer van Straten starred in a moving black and white PSA supporting No Kill Los Angeles, an initiative by Best Friends Animal Society (shameless plug: check out our Best Friends kitty vid... it's great).
James Franco's autographed iPad cover could be YOURS if you join in the Speck auction benefiting the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. The auction started yesterday and will end July 27 at 4pm EST. Get to bidding! Note: Franco isn't the only star auctioning off personal items(!!!)
Magic Johnson recently honored students and celebrated the 15th anniversary of the Magic Johnson Foundation. What a, wait for it... magical day.
GET OFF YOUR BUTT PSA ALERT: Kristen Bell, Ashley Green, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and others want you to "run 10 to feed 10." C'mon, get up and get runnin'/good deedin'.
Whew! That was a lot of all-star feel-goodness for one post. Here's to the celebs that stood up for a cause, encouraged us to get up off our tookuses, and restored our faith in humanity just a bit more. Cheers to THAT. Have a good weekend y'all.
