#Hollywood: The Weeknd Made a Huge Donation To Beiruit


The Weeknd donated $300k to Global Aid for Lebanon, to help victims of the Beirut explosion.

That brings his total charitable relief efforts to $2.15 million in just two months.

He donated $200,000 each to Black Lives Matter and the Colin Kaepernick Know Your Rights Camp Legal Defense Initiative; $100,000 to National Bail Out; and $500,000 each to the MusiCares Covid-19 Relief Fund and to frontline health workers at Scarborough Health Network, the healthcare network in his Ontario hometown. Last week, he hosted a virtual concert on TikTok that raised $350,000 for the platform’s Equal Justice Initiative.

He also, headlined an interactive virtual concert on TikTok over the weekend, and it drew quite an audience, and raised a lot of money. 

According to TikTok, the concert had more than two million unique viewers, and at its peak, 275,000 people were watching it at the same time, a new record for the platform. In addition, videos shared with the #TheWeekndEXP hashtag were viewed more than 1.3 billion times.

In total, $350,000 was raised for the Equal Justice Initiative through sales of a The Weeknd x TikTok capsule merch collection.

Demi Lovato shared a snippet of a new tune on her Instagram Story. She's listening to the track in her car, captioning it #D7.

In the clip she can be heard singing, "I know I made it hard for you/ And I owe my part, I'll tell the truth/ You said that it'd be over/ If I didn't get sober/ Sober.”

Jimmy Kimmel clapped back at a troll in defense of Dua Lipa and it's SO GOOD.

Dua Lipa guest hosted the show & one sexist troll decided to comment "Women still aren't funny."

*insert massive eye roll here*

Jimmy wasn't going to let it slide & replied "Maybe if one talks to you someday you'll change your mind"
