New York City. This is what the holidays are all about – GIVING! With that being said, Gallery 151 (located at 132 West 18th Street) is holding a holiday toy drive on December 17, 2011 (from 7-11 PM) to benefit the children of Haiti.

Finally! My beloved George Michael is making headlines for music again! Last month, he released a cover of New Order’s “True Faith” and donated all the proceeds to charity. The singer announced via Twitter that he’d be recording a cover song for Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding. He asked fans to make song suggestions (and of course, I picked “When 2 R In Love” by Prince – fingers crossed). The song will be available for download for free on CNN beginning April 15, 2011. In lieu of paying to download the track, George requests that you make a donation to the Prince William and Kate Middleton Charitable Gift Fund. You can learn more and make your donation here.
A few other bits of George Michael news revealed over the last few weeks via his Twitter account:
-He’s making a dance album
-He’ll be touring again (though on a smaller scale than his “25 Live Tour.”)
-He used the expression “Cock Piss Bastard.” (I just had to throw that in, because I’ve been laughing about that one for days!) Thanks for that George!

UPDATE: The song is Stevie Wonder’s “You and I.” You can download it for a limited time at George Michael’s official website.
