More Help for Haiti: Diddy and Queen Latifah Hosting a 2nd Telethon

- By Bossip Staff Categories: A "Lil Positivity", News

More stars are coming forward to do their part and raise money and awareness for the people in Haiti who suffered from the tragic earthquake.  This time around Diddy and Queen Latifah will be hosting a telethon in conjunction with BET.  More details under the hood.

“SOS Saving Ourselves — Help For Haiti” will air from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. that day on BET, Centric, MTV and VH1. Queen Latifah, Sean “Diddy” Combs and Pharrell Williams will host the telethon, which takes place at the AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami, and Wyclef Jean, Mary J. Blige, Ludacris, Justin Bieber and Robin Thicke will be among the performers. (Many more artists will be added later.)

“In addition to musical performances, the fundraising event will feature some of the biggest names in music and entertainment to answer the phones during the telethon.” Proceeds will go to Jean’s Yele organization, CARE, MediShare and Proctor and Gamble’s Children’s Safe Drinking Water Program.

The telethon will air February 5th and hopefully will raise close to or more than the $60 million that was raised with the “Hope for Haiti Now” telethon, which ran on many major networks worldwide.

    You know what, I’m glad to see people coming together in time of need, however Fluck Diddy. I can’t stand his azz. What the heck did he do for Hurricane Katrina victims. I NEVER heard anything that either of them (Diddy or King latifah) did for their own people here. they are such opportunist.

    What we need to be asking is WHY is there more mililtary personel sent over to Haiti than there is medical personnel. Beware of the beast. The powers that be, been wanted to get their hands on Haitian land.

  • monique

    one is enough….why dont we pull em outta that country and let em settle somewhere else

  • UrHeinessDaQueen

    good they joined forces for a great & very much needed cause,both Latifah & Diddy looked great!

  • Jack

    Ms. K:

    Great post. Why host a telethon when both Didddy and Queen Latifah can afford to give their own money. There are people in this country that can’t find work but you want them to spend their last dime?

  • bossip.got.nerve

    The celebrities should just give out of their own pockets and stop with the overkill.

  • me

    I think Queen Latifah looks beautiful in this pic. Good color on her.

  • KEMSEY

    WHAT HAVE THEY DONE WITH THE MONEY RAISED THUS FAR? FROM WHAT I’VE READ, PPL IN HAITI NEED WATER.

  • chica

    Is it just me, or does Diddy’s skin coloring look slightly off? Sometimes peolpe with liver or kidney conditions have this appearance. Check out Gary Coleman……..
