Stars “Cool Off” At President Clinton’s Weekend Long 65th Birthday Celebration!
It may feel like the end of Summer in most places in the country, but in sunny Los Angeles, things are still H-O-T! And this past weekend was no exception — especially having the former President of the US-of-A, Bill Clinton, in town!
Bill had a heck of a lot to celebrate: not only was it the 10th Anniversary of The Clinton Foundation, but, it was also his 65th birthday party!! (Cue, “Happy Birthday, Mister President…”)
The festivities went all weekend long but the “peak-of-the-week…end” was the Clinton Foundation “Decade of Difference” concert at the Hollywood Bowl. With outrageous performances by Lady Gaga, Stevie Wonder, U2′s Bono, Usher, K’Naan, and Kenny Chesney, and appearances by Ashton Kutcher, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia DiRossi, Barbra Streisand, Jane Fonda, Jason Segel, Jennifer Love-Hewitt, and so many more, this was a fitting celebration for one of the most celebrated Presidents of our generation!
Millions of people, who were not in attendance, were able to watch the concert, live, streaming exclusively on Yahoo! (Ah, the future!)
Throughout the weekend, MJ was “on the scene” getting all the scoop, from scorching “hot” moments like Lady Gaga changing her hit song “Bad Romance” to “Bill Romance” — to super “cool” moments like Jane Fonda and Bonnie Rait posing for a pic together while indulging in premium Magnum Ice Cream bars, well into the night at the official after party.Read More

The event is said to be gathering “the most influential and socially responsible artists in music, film, and television.”
“In the past decade, commitments to my Clinton Global Initiative have improved the lives of more than 300 million people around the world,” Clinton said in a statement. “We’ve lowered the cost of AIDS and HIV treatment, combated climate change, strengthened economies, increased access to education and healthcare, provided financing and mentoring for small businesses. This celebration marks ten years of these efforts and demonstrates how much we can do to make a difference in the years ahead.”
