    I think it is great what JLo and Matthew McConaughey have done. It is great when stars give money to charity too but I think it is really something special when they give their ‘time’. Anyone can donate money.

    With everything going on in the world this is what Tribute talks about?It`s not even about the fact that entertainment is a form of escapism from the real world.I understand that.But talking about things such as this is just a complete waste of time.
