Janet Jackson, Gwen Stefani to attend AIDS charity event at Cannes

Janet Jackson, Brooke Shields, Gwen Stefani, Freida Pinto, Michelle Yeoh and Milla Jovovich are some of the celebrities that are slated to attend the annual AIDS event held during the Cannes Film Festival.

The annual event at the Hotel Du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes, France, will include a formal dinner and a world-renowned live auction, all to benefit amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research. As in previous years, producer Harvey Weinstein will recruit talent from the room to help with the live auction.

For the first time this year, amfAR is partnering with L’Oréal Paris for the official After Party. Famed DJs Samantha Ronson, Sebastian Perrin, and special guests will provide the music at the Eden-Roc, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. The L’Oréal amfAR After Party will be hosted by Gwen Stefani, Freida Pinto, Patrick Dempsey, Milla Jovovich, and Michelle Yeoh.

In past years, the Cinema Against AIDS auction has seen legendary impromptu performances by such artists as Sir Elton John, Kylie Minogue, Annie Lennox, Patti Smith, Robin Williams, Natalie Cole, Liza Minnelli, Sheryl Crow, Wyclef Jean, Ringo Starr, Macy Gray, and Lionel Ritchie.

  2. According to a news report on Reuters, the amfAR event raised a staggering $10 million on the night, quenching tales that Cannes was strapped for cash. Top lots at the auction were the opportunity to play a game of tennis with Prince Albert II of Monaco and a private swimming lesson from his wife (€500,000 – each!).

    Actress Milla Jovovich sang “I Want to be Loved by You” and Courtney Love gave an impromptu performance of two numbers.
