CHATTING UP Manager Scooter Braun and Houston rapper Bun B organised the event: “Five dollars here ... 20 dollars there—that all adds up,” said Jay Leno. “People get to talk to their favourite celebrity for a minute and help out.” THE PLANET’S BIGGEST stars joined forces on Sept. 12 for a one-hour, ad-free telethon aired across multiple US networks to raise money for victims of hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Over the course of the night, singers performed and other celebrities anwered the phones and told stories of real-life victims who suffered enormous losses. “Anyone who believes there is no such thing as global warming must be blind … or unintelligent,” said Stevie Wonder, who kicked off the event with a gospel choir-backed rendition of the song “Lean on Me”.
