There are still parties and dinners going on on Sunday night at Sundance. I wasn't able to make more than one, but here's a shakedown of what went on:
9:05 p.m.: After a long day of interviews, just hit the first party of the night. Michael Chiklis, who is in "HIGH School" just walked in. He's heading to his cast party downstairs at the Film Lounge.
9:10 p.m.: Mark Ruffalo, who is the director/writer of Sympathy for Delicious just stepped on the red carpet before heading into the Bing Supper Club dinner for the movie. Just a few seconds later, Orlando Bloom makes his way in, sporting a very colorful scarf. FULL POST
Pop heart throb Justin Timberlake’s reverent take on Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah,” seemed perfectly suited for the benefit to raise money for earthquake-ravaged Haiti.
The singer told MTV that the song is one of his favorites. “What’s being said in the song, it just kind of fit the telethon,” he said. FULL POST
The Scorpions, the German metal band whose biggest hits include "Rock You Like a Hurricane" and "Wind of Change," will no longer be stinging.
The band, which has been together in one combination or another for more than 40 years, announced Sunday it will be breaking up. They're in no rush to go, however: besides a new album, "Sting in the Tail," due out in March, the band is embarking on a three-year world tour.
"We want to end the Scorpions' extraordinary career on a high note," the band said in a message on its Web site. "We are extremely grateful for the fact that we still have the same passion for music we’ve always had since the beginning. ... We finish our career with an album we consider to be one of the best we have ever recorded and with a tour that will start in our home country Germany and take us to five different continents over the next few years."
Supporters of the “Hope for Haiti Now” telethon are continuing to show their philanthropy via downloads.
As of Monday morning the “Hope for Haiti Now ” album remained number one on the iTunes album chart and three singles from the album were in the top 20 songs. “Hallelujah” by Justin Timberlake and Matt Morris, featuring Charlie Sexton, ranked number 2, “Lean On Me” by Sheryl Crow, Kid Rock and Keith Urban was number 12 and “Breathless” by Taylor Swift was 19.
On the live show, Timberlake was accompanied on guitar and vocals by Morris, a former co-star of his on "The Mickey Mouse Club."
The star-studded "Hope for Haiti Now" telethon included more than 100 celebrities and has raised a record-breaking $58 million with more donations continuing to pour in from those seeking to help the impoverished nation in the wake of a devastating earthquake. FULL POST
