One World: Together at Home, streamed live on 18 April, will support UN response fund

Lady Gaga is to curate One World: Together at Home, a live-streamed and televised benefit concert in support of the World Health Organizations Covid-19 solidarity response fund and in celebration of health workers around the world.

The lineup includes Lady Gaga, Billie Eilish and her brother Finneas, Lizzo, J Balvin, Stevie Wonder, Paul McCartney, Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day, Alanis Morissette, Burna Boy, Andrea Bocelli, Chris Martin of Coldplay, Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam, Elton John, John Legend, Kacey Musgraves, Keith Urban and Lang Lang.

The US talk show hosts Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel and Stephen Colbert will host the event, which broadcasts live across the US television networks ABC, CBS and NBC, as well as being streamed online, at 8pm EST on 18 April.

BBC One will show an adapted version of the concert on 19 April, including exclusive performances from UK artists and interviews with frontline health workers. The details of the broadcast are yet to be announced.

Other celebrities expected to appear include David Beckham, Idris and Sabrina Elba, Kerry Washington, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Shah Rukh Khan and Sesame Street cast members.

The WHO and the social action platform Global Citizen have partnered to produce the event. The latters Together at Home series, launched last month, has featured performances from artists in isolation including Shawn Mendes, Camila Cabello and Rufus Wainwright.

In a WHO press conference, Lady Gaga said she had helped to raise $35m (28m) for Global Citizen in the past week. She clarified that One World was not a fundraising telethon and would focus on entertainment and messages of solidarity, with philanthropists and businesses urged to donate to the Covid-19 solidarity response fund ahead of the event.

The WHOs general director, Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, said:We may have to be apart physically for a little while, but we can still come together virtually to enjoy great music. The One World: Together at Home concert represents a powerful show of solidarity against a common threat.

This article was amended on 6 April 2020. Lady Gaga stated that philanthropists and businesses were being urged to donate to the organisation, rather than fans as an earlier version said. This has been corrected.

Jimmy Kimmel Live! has an awesome segment called ‘Celebrities Read Mean Tweets’ and it’s a real pleasure to watch how stars react to angry posts and troll comments. Some of their comebacks are amazing. The reactions of others are priceless as well. And once in a while, you see genuine surprise that there are people out there who don’t like stars!

Scroll down, upvote your fave mean tweets, and share this post with your pals if you think they’ll enjoy a good laugh or two. Just remember, this is no reason to start bullying celebs or spreading hate.

When you’re done with this post and if you find yourself wanting more, you can find Bored Panda’s previous articles about celebrities reading mean tweets about themselves on Jimmy Kimmel’s show here, here, here, as well as here.




No matter how much love you might get as a celebrity, there will always, always be at least a handful of people out there who dislike you or even hate you. The moral of the story is that you can’t be loved by everyone. So if you’re worried about someone disliking you, just remember that right now, there are hundreds, thousands of trolls hunched over their keyboards, bashing out mean comments about your favorite actors, singers, dancers, and other celebs.




Twitter user JayBird told Bored Panda their opinion about why Jimmy Kimmel’s show segment about celebrities reading mean tweets is so popular. According to JayBird, the segment’s popularity most likely stems from a desire to laugh and thus “turn the negativity away from you and back to the insulter.” In other words, people want to get rid of stress, anxiety, and other negative feelings, and laughter is perfect for that.

JayBird mused that the reason why some people send out mean or hateful tweets to celebrities is because they want fame themselves, so they try to get as close as they can to celebrities. Even if that’s achieved through something negative like insulting stars.

What’s more, JayBird said that the perfect way to deal with mean tweets is exactly what celebs do on the Jimmy Kimmel show: laugh at them and show everyone that the tweets don’t affect them in any way at all.




There are bad ways to deal with haters like getting into internet catfights with them, breaking down in tears, or screaming at passers-by.

And then there are awesome ways to react and feel like a pro. For example, the author of the legendary Harry Potter books J.K.Rowling once used her name in a punny reply to a critic, saying “They see me Rowlin’, They hatin.’” I think that many of us would absolutely love to use our last names as puns. But not all of us are as lucky as Rowling. Or we need a tad more imagination.

But this doesn’t answer the question of why online trolls target celebrities in the first place. Wouldn’t it be better to vent your rage at the gym instead?

According to presenter Rachel Riley, trolls are all “exactly the same” and are after “publicity.” She explained that, in her opinion, trolls target public figures to get more followers. While some of them, who have political ambitions, want to get more people to support their hateful ideologies.

Comics including Jimmy Kimmel discussed Trump in Puerto Rico, and the coverage of the Las Vegas attack, the deadliest mass shooting in US history

Late-night hosts on Tuesday addressed Donald Trumps trip to Puerto Rico to survey the damage caused by Hurricane Maria, as well as calls from Fox News hosts not to politicize the deadly shooting in Las Vegas.

Thirteen days after Hurricane Maria, yet another disaster struck Puerto Rico, Stephen Colbert began. Donald Trump visited the island. But before the president left for San Juan, he gave this objective assessment of his administrations disaster relief effort.

Colbert, showing footage of the president grading his administrations performance in Florida, Texas and Puerto Rico an A+, responded: You know you cant give yourself an A+. Thats not how grades work.

Trump addressed the devastation this hurricane caused to him, Colbert continued, showing Trump, speaking before the press in Puerto Rico, saying that the damage caused by Maria has thrown our budget out of whack.

The budget is out of whack? Colbert said. Thats like a fireman rescuing you from a burning building and saying, You understand what our water bill is going to be, right?

Of course, Trump didnt just go to Puerto Rico to talk, he also handed out much-needed supplies in the Trumpiest way possible.

The host showed clips of the president nonchalantly tossing paper towel rolls to a crowd of Puerto Ricans awaiting disaster relief.

After that he went to a hospital and distributed antibiotics with a T-shirt cannon.

Jimmy Kimmel also discussed Trumps visit to Puerto Rico. The president was in Puerto Rico today to survey the damage caused by Hurricane Maria, Kimmel began. He likes to bring Melania to these kind of things in case he encounters situations that require showing concern for other human beings. That becomes her job.

He continued: Trump has said some not-so-nice things about Puerto Rico over the past week, including a tweet where he said Puerto Ricans want everything to be done for them. Says the guy whos never carried a piece of luggage in his entire life. But at a news conference this morning, he regaled those who still dont have power on 95% of their island with hilarity like this.

Kimmel then showed the now-infamous clip of Trump claiming relief efforts for Puerto Rico have messed with the federal budget.

Next time you allow a storm to ravage your island, think about the cost, Kimmel joked. He really puts the ass in compassion, doesnt he?

The president didnt just pitch in to help with his words, he also took some time at a relief center, where this actually happened, Kimmel continued, showing Trump throwing paper towels as if shooting a basketball. What is he doing? Who does that? What planet is this man from?

Kimmel went on: Trump also had an uncomfortable meeting with the mayor of San Juan who he criticized via tweet. While the president has been very critical of some in Puerto Rico, theres one person he had very nice things to say about.

The host then showed, like Colbert, footage of Trump claiming hed received good marks, done a great job and made tremendous strides on his efforts in Puerto Rico.

Its amazing how hes able to get those tiny hands around his back to pat it, Kimmel concluded.

Finally, Trevor Noah of Comedy Centrals The Daily Show addressed the coverage of the Las Vegas shooting on the Fox News Network, where calls not to politicize the tragedy have mounted as hosts try to deflect from growing concerns about lax gun control laws.

Today, we learned more details about the shooter, Noah began. He was a 64-year-old man from Florida with no criminal record and he owned 42 guns. And apparently he was a multimillionaire, which means right now he doesnt fit any profile of any mass shooter. And you know whos having a hard time processing all of that information? The good people at Fox News.

Noah then showed a clip of Fox News host Brian Kilmeade claiming we dont know enough about him to hate him yet.

How do you hate someone who killed 59 people?, Noah responded. Because hes not Muslim. He wasnt known to be mentally ill. He doesnt kneel for the anthem. Hes just a rich white guy who shot people at a country music concert.

Trevor Noah on the shooting in Las Vegas

Since Sundays shootings didnt fit any of Fox News established narratives, they couldnt politicize it, the host continued, showing clips from the network of hosts taking offense at the suggestion that the Las Vegas shooting should lead to conversations about gun control. And if they couldnt politicize it, then I guess neither should anyone else.

I like how Fox News says, Please dont politicize this today, as if theres any time theyd be willing to talk about gun control, Noah said. What kind of terrible people would push a political agenda the day after a mass shooting, a shooting like Orlando?

Noah then showed clips from the networks coverage of last summers massacre at a gay nightclub in Orlando, after which Fox anchors and pundits fervently called for more immigration reform and referred to radical Islamic terrorism.

So, clearly Foxs whole dont politicize it is BS, or maybe just a way to buy time while theyre figuring out how to politicize it, Noah said, showing Fox host Jesse Waters claiming that NFL players kneeling were disrespecting the police officers who defend us from mass shooters like Stephen Paddock.

Wow, did this guy just find a way to use a mass shooting to pivot back to the NFL argument?
