Mary J. Blige doing double time for charities

By Roger Friedman

HollywoodNews.com: Mary J. Blige is one of the coolest performers out there. To prove it, she’s doing double time for charities over the next week.

This Thursday, Mary J. will join Sting, Elton John, Lady GaGa, and Shirley Bassey at the annual concert for the Rainforest Foundation at Carnegie Hall. Trudie Styler puts together this amazing show every other year, and has been for 21 years. Mary J, of course, has sung with Sting before, so there may be a duet on that program.

But then Mary J will o-”blige” AmFAR and be the special guest in Cannes next Thursday, May 20th at the Cinema Against AIDS gala at the Hotel duCap. Mary J finishes her shows with her anthem, “I See Colors.” The folks at the duCap have never heard anything so crazy. Be ready to be dazzled! Alan Cumming is the night’s emcee, and stars could run the gamut from Sean Penn to Mick Jagger to Naomi Watts.

    Do any of the celebrities actually pay their own way and donate to the organization or do the contributions for aids research go to their air fare and hotels?
