Katrina: More celebrity aid

Katrina headlines continue to dominate the entertainment news this week, and as my pal Martha might say, as long as fundraising efforts don’t get pushed to page 11, ”It’s a good thing.” Here’s the latest roundup:

-Michael Jackson is getting some all-star help with his charity single, ”From the Bottom of My Heart.” Reportedly on board: Mariah Carey, Snoop Dogg, Jay Z, James Brown, Lenny Kravitz, Wyclef Jean, Lauryn Hill, Missy Elliott, Ciara, Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds, Yolanda Adams, R. Kelly, and Mary J. Blige.

-Nelly’s fundraising drive in St. Louis yielded two 18-wheelers filled with clothing and other supplies, according to MTV.com.

-And Variety and Billboard have got roundups on the latest Hollywood and music-industry responses to Katrina, including updates on concerts, online auctions, and other creative fundraisers.
