LENDING his star power to a good cause, Chris Brown gave this little Adelaide angel a kiss of hope.
Lilah Sophie Bishop was born with an inoperable brain tumour and was not expected to survive the pregnancy. But her parents, Andrea and Nic, and sisters, Jemima, 4, and Madeline, 3, celebrated her 18-month birthday on April 20.
In celebrating her miraculous milestone Andrea and Nic set up a Facebook page, Lilah Sophie, to let people know of the Live Life for Lilah challenge. Instead of lavishing their baby daughter with gifts, people take time to “live in the moment”.
“We wanted people to stop and enjoy the moment,” mum Andrea tells Confidential.
“(Lilah's) an absolute beauty, a real rarity. We have a party every month for her birthday on the 20th. She won't see them in years, so we said we'll do them in months instead.”
Friends Janise Warne and Georgia Wise, took the initiative to celebrate Lilah's life by asking if the R&B superstar would send good wishes. Janise and Georgia waited three hours at a sound check to give one of Chris's entourage a folder with Lilah's photo. Chris asked to be photographed with the photo and soon the image went up on Twitter.
Andrea says: “I keep a journal for Lilah and I write her a letter every day, which I have done from the moment she was diagnosed. I call her our angel. "
Since his Adelaide visit, Chris, who has a controversial past, started doing good deeds around the country including continuing his charity work with Best Buddies Australia by joining a group of kids in Sydney to go ten-pin bowling.
Joe Jonas isn't playing games for his solo album. Having already hooked up with songwriter Claude Kelly and producer Danja, Jonas is also adding some pop&b flavor to his forthcoming project with an assist from Chris Brown.
The two made headlines earlier this month when a photo of them in the studio together hit the Internet. It was tweeted out by producer Hit-Boy (Lil Wayne, Eminem, Kanye West, 50 Cent), who also had this message for fans interested in hearing what the two young men were cooking up. “@joejonas @HitBoy_SC @chrisbrown just did a smash! Whooo.
“We wrote a song called 'See No More,' ” Joe told MTV News at the Us Weekly Hot Hollywood Style issue party Tuesday night. “It's on the album, and people are going back and forth; we're all trying to figure out singles right now. But it was a great experience. Chris is such a talented dude.”
While their backgrounds seem very different, Brown and Jonas are both started out as teen stars and are now trying to bridge the gap to adulthood. Joe said it was a lot of fun working with his fellow chart-topper
. “He's got thousands of songs,” Jonas said. “He's always in the studio, and to work with him is really fun. We were able to collaborate really well together, and the vibe in the studio was really chill; just two musicians writing together.”
Selon une personne de l'équipe de « When I was 17″ de MTV, Chris Brown a tourné son épisode hier en Australie. Dans cette émission, les stars présentent l'année de leurs 17 ans et dévoilent des anecdotes, souvent drôles. Souvent elles décrivent l'avant-célébrité mais Chris lui était déjà célèbre.
L'épisode de Chris sera diffusé le 14 mai à 11h du matin (USA).
« Ils cherchaient un son, et ils m'ont demandé si j'avais quelquechose pour eux. J'étais chez moi. J'ai juste pris un bout de papier et j'ai commencé à écrire. C'était un super moment. »
« Je pense qu'il est mal compris, les gens l'ont connu quand il était jeune, alors les gens le considèrent encore comme un jeune, alors qu'il a grandit. Il veut accomplir des choses en tant qu'artiste, et même en tant qu'homme. Il est centré. Il laisse son empreinte. C'est un artiste incroyable. »
