2015 Holiday Gift Guide: Mission Belts

Mission Belts orange

The Mission Belt is an evolution in belt design, style, and function, and after wearing one for a number of months, I can whole-heartedly recommend it in our 2015 Holiday Gift Guide. The belt is sleek and clean, and provides a perfect fit for everyone. With no holes to stretch or wear over time, your genuine leather belt always looks great. The tip of the belt inserts into the ratchet belt buckle, where a locking mechanism holds the belt in place from the back. To remove the belt, just press the small metal lever on the bottom of the buckle, and the belt slides out of the buckle. You're no longer restricted to 1 inch size adjustments, but can get a perfect custom-fit every time. Not only will you look good, you'll feel good too, because one dollar from every Mission Belt sold goes to help hungry families worldwide become self-sufficient.

Simon Cowell Sings ‘Power Rangers’ Theme for $1 Million

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Television, Charity,

Simon CowellSimon Cowell raised $1 million for charity by singing.

The X Factor judge agreed to put his dignity on the line for a good cause after billionaire Power Rangers creator, Haim Saban, offered to make the huge donation if Simon sang the show's theme tune with him. The 54-year-old British star, whose girlfriend Lauren Silverman is expecting a baby boy in February, delighted the packed room of guests after he accepted the challenge to raise money for Friends of Israel Defense Forces in Beverly Hills on Tuesday night.

Midway through his performance, Simon offered to donate $100,000 of his own money if he was allowed to stop. Saban then agreed he could stop singing for $250,000, according to video footage obtained by gossip website TMZ.com.

The music mogul was also recently persuaded to show off his vocal talents by his fellow talent show judge Kelly Rowland during auditions for the X Factor in Denver, Colorado, after being urged to show off his skills after he was less than impressed with one wannabe's attempt at singing 1940s classic "Fools Rush In."

Jay-Z Joins Beyonce at Sound of Change

Jay-Z and Beyonce at Sound of Change

Beyonce was joined on-stage by husband Jay-Z at the Sound of Change concert last night. The couple - who together have a 16-month-old daughter Blue Ivy - performed their huge hit "Crazy In Love" much to the delight of the crowd at London's Twickenham Stadium. They even shared a kiss on stage in front of the adoring fans at the show in aid of The Chime For Change charity which funds education, health and justice projects for women.

Appropriately opening her set with "A Change Is Gonna Come," the superstar led the crowd through a set filled with hits like "If I Were A Boy" and "Single Ladies." She also paid tribute to the late Whitney Houston - which was also done on her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour - saying, "We will always love you, Whitney" during a performance of "I Will Always Love You." Beyonce then brought her headline performance to an end with the ever-powerful "Halo," closing a hugely successful event.

Product Red bumper case iPhone 4S

Apple is set to unveil its next-generation iPhone 5 in a little over three weeks, but that hasn't stopped the company from releasing a new accessory for the iPhone 4 and 4S. The new (PRODUCT) RED bumper fits and works with the iPhone 4S, as well as the iPhone 4 from two years ago. It's $29 and joins the black, white, blue, orange, green, and pink bumpers in the Apple lineup. Oddly, it doesn't ship for 6-8 weeks, when the next iPhone launches. Buyer beware--if you plan on picking up the next iPhone, just realize that this bumper won't fit that model.

Russell Brand ‘Treats Homeless Man to $630’

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Kind Acts,

Russell BrandRussell Brand has given $630 to a homeless man.

The 36-year-old Arthur star reportedly saw the man was down on his luck and decided to help him out.

"Russ decided to do something charitable. He met a homeless guy on Hollywood Boulevard, just around the corner from the home he shared with Katy Perry. Russ was with his new girlfriend and they struck up a conversation with the guy. After chatting for a few minutes he decided he wanted to get him a roof over his head for a few nights. So he went over the road and withdrew $630 for him. When Russell handed over the wad of cash, the fella had tears in his eyes. Russ told him to spend it wisely and to make sure he says 'Hello' if they ever cross paths again," a source told The Daily Star.

Meanwhile, the comedian has introduced mum Barbara to new girlfriend, model Nikolett Barabas. The trio were spotted helping Russell house hunt in Los Angeles over the weekend following his arrest for allegedly throwing a paparazzo's iPhone through a window last week.
