Tonight’s Hope for Haiti telethon may be more star-studded than the Golden Globes: Beyonce and Madonna have signed on to the two-hour benefit, which will also feature Bill Clinton, Jon Stewart, and Bruce Springsteen in New York; Brad Pitt, Oprah Winfrey, and Justin Timberlake in Los Angeles; and Robert Pattinson, Jay-Z, and Rihanna in London, notes PopEater. More on how the stars are helping Haiti:

  • Leonardo DiCaprio, who will appear on tonight’s telecast, is the latest celebrity to donate $1 million to relief efforts.
  • Amy Fisher, otherwise known as the “Long Island Lolita,” wins the prize for weirdest aid effort: She’s stripping tonight and tomorrow in Long Island, and promises to donate a portion (portion? how generous) of what she makes to the relief effort.
  • Radiohead is playing a Sunday night show in Hollywood to benefit Haiti, with tickets sold only via auction—click here for more details.
