As far as celeb attendance goes, the DNC tends to be where it’s at — Hollywood does have a reputation to live up to, after all. But 2012 is not 2008 and while the Dems have certainly attracted a few ounces of star power to the convention, it’s not going to be the first-class lounge/Oscar backstage feeling it was four years ago, when the Cold War Kids opened a Shepard Fairey art exhibit and Google co-hosted a party with Vanity Fair. While the RNC had Clint Eastwood and his now even-more-famous sidekick — the chair — the DNC boasts parties with Will.i.am, the Roots, the Foo Fighters, and Flo Rida. The left also got an extra day to party – while the speeches start Tuesday, an all-day Labor Day fest Monday provided free entertainment from Janelle Monae and James Taylor for Charlotte residents and convention-goers alike.

Will.i.am is heading for Mars — sort of.
According to Rolling Stone, the Black Eyed Peas frontman is broadcasting a new song “Reach for the Stars” on the red planet today. (Although he obviously won’t be there.)
He’s teamed with NASA to live stream the event, which will feature a feed from the Mars rover at 4 p.m. ET.
Celebrities and fans gathered at Santa Monica Airport on Sunday to celebrate “the do-ers” – that is, people who get out there and do something good for others, which includes both celebs and not-quite-as-famous young adults alike. The event was the annual Do Something Awards, organized by DoSomething.org and set to air on VH1 this Tuesday.
The Do Something Awards recognize a handful of celebrities for their charitable and activist efforts, along with five young adults under age 25 for their community service. This year Katia Gomez, 24, took home the Do Something Award – along with a $100,000 grant – for creating Educate2Envision, which provides education for young citizens of Honduras.
Among the celebrity winners were Ben Affleck, Will.i.am, Kristen Bell and Joel McHale, for the awards that DoSomething.org invited fans to vote upon online. READ FULL STORY
