Brad and Angelina are Cool

I know we spend a lot of our time ripping celebrities here but no matter how black my heart is, it’s always refreshing to hear something positive. No, not the results of Paris’ AIDS test. Something like this:

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt put world leaders in the shade yesterday by highlighting education and conservation issues at the Clinton Global Initiative in Midtown. Pitt announced that he’ll commit $5 million to build 150 homes in the 9th ward of New Orleans, while his partner in the venture, Steve Bing, will commit another $5 million. Jolie, meanwhile, shared some big ideas of her own: representing Education Partnership for Children of Conflict, she spoke about the initiative’s pledge to educate 1 million children.”

Love them or hate them, nobody can deny that these two are socially conscious and make every attempt to use their fame and fortune to raise awareness, help others, and make real change in the world. Just like Al Sharpton.
