Former Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale joined former Bush drummer Robin Goodridge

Former Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale joined former Bush drummer Robin Goodridge for a late breakfast at tasty Hollywood diner Cafe 101.

Robin currently plays with his new band "Spear of Destiny," which is on a sold-out tour of Southern California.
Was this just a friendly chat over brunch, or should Bush fans anticipate a non-coffee-related reunion?

Mini Me: Gavin Rossdale and Kingston

There are exceptions to every rule, and when it comes to family dressing, Gavin Rossdale and his son Kingston are it.

The fashionable father and son brought their star power to the playground over the weekend, wearing army green jackets, white t-shirts, and jeans. The two looked casually cool as they escorted the visibly expectant and glowing Gwen Stefani around the swings and slide.

Taking swigs from a sippy cup and playing with his pacifier, lil lamb Kingston makes being the child of two very down-to-earth international celebrities look like a walk in the park.

Hosted by Gucci and Madonna

NEW YORK, Feb. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- On February 6th, 2008, Gucci and
Madonna hosted a fundraising event: A NIGHT TO BENEFIT RAISING MALAWI AND
UNICEF. The event took place on the North Lawn of the United Nations, held
in a 42,000 square foot tent erected specifically for the evening.

Co-chaired by Gucci's Creative Director, Frida Giannini, the evening
was dedicated to raising funds and awareness for orphans and children made
vulnerable by HIV/AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa where over 11 million of the
48 million orphans have lost one or both parents to AIDS. The event
successfully raised a total of approximately $5.5 million from ticket sales
and a live auction. Gucci has completely underwritten the event and 100% of
the proceeds will be split equally between the US Fund for UNICEF and
Raising Malawi.

Joined by Madonna and Frida Giannini was a list of distinguished
co-chairs, including Drew Barrymore, Arpad Busson, Salma Hayek and
Francois-Henri Pinault, Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher, Gwyneth Paltrow,
Professor Jeffrey Sachs, as well as UNICEF Goodwill Ambassadors Tea Leoni
and Lucy Liu. Guests at the sold-out event included: Amy Adams, Jennifer
Lopez and Marc Anthony, Devon Aoki, Sean Avery, Camilla Belle, Orlando
Bloom, Christopher Burge, Sean Combs, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, Eric
Dane and Rebecca Gayheart, Becky Newton and Chris Diamantopoulos, Barry
Diller and Diane von Furstenberg, Ben Foster, Nelly Furtado, Keri Hilson,
Ellen Pompeo and Chris Ivery, Bill and Katie Lee Joel, Donna Karan, Miranda
Kerr, Heidi Klum, Zoe Kravitz, Ali Larter, Justin Long, Christian

and Jerry Seinfeld, Brooke Shields, Molly Sims, Martha Stewart, Donald and
Melania Trump, Ivanka Trump, Pharrell Williams, Debra Messing and Daniel
Zelman and Cassie.

After passing through the red carpet, guests entered the cocktail area
to view the photographs of Kristen Ashburn, a documentary photographer,
whose work has taken her to southern Africa to capture the impact of AIDS
in the region. Guests then entered a Gucci-inspired amphitheater dinner
room for a dinner catered by Olivier Cheng. They were welcomed to their
seats by African drummers and a live performance by the African Children's
Choir. Madonna then welcomed the crowd. Following dinner, Frida Giannini
gave a brief speech and introduced UNICEF Goodwill Ambassadors, Tea Leoni
and Lucy Liu. The evening's program included clips from Madonna's
documentary "I Am Because We Are," as well as guest speakers Professor
Jeffrey Sachs and Matthews Chikaonda. Chris Rock then took the stage to
co-host the live auction, with Christie's Christopher Burge, of several
luxury experience packages including a private tour of the Chateau LaTour
vineyards, a Milanese excursion to the next Gucci fashion show, a sports
lovers fantasy package and a personal lifestyle experience with Madonna.

After the auction, Madonna introduced the first performer of the
evening, Rihanna, who sang "Please Don't Stop the Music," and her hit song
"Umbrella," followed by Timbaland's performance of "The Way I Are" with
Keri Hilson. Nelly Furtado then joined Timbaland on stage and the two
performed "Give It To Me." To conclude the performances, Alicia Keys belted
her hit single "No One." The evening lasted until 12:30 am with an after
party featuring DJ Jus Ske.

Both together and individually, Gucci and Madonna share a history of
commitment to the fight against AIDS, as well as support for orphans and
children affected by HIV/AIDS. Beginning in 1997, Madonna served as
Honorary Co-chair of the record-breaking Gucci fundraising event for AIDS
Project Los Angeles. Gucci and Madonna have both since responded to the
global circumstances of the AIDS pandemic, pursuing interests on behalf of
orphans and children affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa.

Gucci has been a UNICEF corporate partner since 2004, starting with a
local holiday event in Los Angeles, and growing to a global campaign in
over twenty countries in 2005. The Gucci campaign supports UNICEF programs
in Malawi and Mozambique, where over one million children have been
orphaned by HIV/AIDS. Since 2006, Raising Malawi has been dedicated to
bringing an end to the extreme poverty and hardship endured by Malawi's one
million orphans, over half of whom have been orphaned by AIDS.
