Angelina Jolie Went to Space and Back

Angelina Jolie took sons Maddox and Pax to Washington, D.C.’s Air and Space Museum on Monday, The Washington Post reports.

Maddox, 6, wore a navy blue hoodie and Pax, 4, wore an olive green jacket. Prince Pax also asked a lot of questions as they toured Space Hall, Skylab and the WWI and WWII exhibits!

Angie, 32, attended the Vital Voices Global Leadership Awards gala last night and is expected at the Council on Foreign Relations today.

    OT: Idol Gives Back Spoiler
    from alanb @idolforums:

    Like last year’s Idol Gives Back, the rest of the show alternated between on stage performances, a few comedy “skits,” and video packages from areas in both the U.S. and Africa underlining the need for immediate aid. If I went through all of it in detail, this post would be 10,000 words long, and I’d be stealing Michael Slezak’s thunder when he recaps the Wednesday show. So forthwith, I’ll give you a brisk(ish) breakdown of the evening, with occasional highlights from the press room by the illustrious Shirley Halperin.

    The First Lady of California, Maria Shriver, brings over 100 volunteers on stage to kick off the charity portion of the night. She then presents a video package of Jennifer Connelly, demonstrating the importance of access to clean water, something more than one billion people don’t have.

    Snoop Dogg raps, sporting a mic with a blinged-out Snoop logo and backed by kids from the Snoop Football League. He tells the audience to wave their arms. Pretty much everyone does, except for Simon Cowell. (And, okay, us jaded journalists in the third balcony. Biz waved her heart out.)

    BACKSTAGE IN THE PRESS ROOM from Shirley Halperin: As Snoop leaves the press area, he sees Dolly Parton on the monitor and says to himself and posse, “Dolly Parton’s up in this mother…”

    Paula and Randy introduce a package of their visit to a rural California community aided by the Save the Children foundation, one of Idol Gives Back’s main charities.

    Ryan says he’s “headed to the Idol studios,” which translates to “we can’t just cop to the fact that this is pre-taped, so we’re going to pretend I’m racing between the Kodak and CBS Television City instead.”

    John Legend rips through “Show Me,” and then introduces Fergie, who soars through “Finally.” She introduces Heart. Biz comments that “Half the kids here are like who?” But it doesn’t matter after Fergie joins their riff on “Barracuda,” looking hella fierce in tight leather pants and demonstrating some unexpected gymnastic skill with two one-handed cartwheels. (If you were wondering, yes, as always, the judges talked during these performances too.)

    more Idol Gives back spoilers

    BACKSTAGE IN THE PRESS ROOM from Shirley Halperin: Heart’s Ann and Nancy Wilson talk about Paula. Nancy: “I like the [new] single. It’s lovely. She’s a Jackson, she’s got a lovely voice. Oh Paula Abdul, right. Friends of Jacksons have lovely voice.” Ann: “That’s the bane of her existence, isn’t it?” Nancy: “Sorry, Paula!”

    Billy Crystal and Miley Cyrus engage in a mildly funny sketch about how neither knows who the other one is. They manage to slip in plugs for the Disney Channel and CBS, but for some reason I’m thinking that might get cut. Miley then sings “Good and Broken,” the first time Biz and I have seen her perform. Neither of us believe a girl this self-possessed could be 15.

    Bono shows up in a video package about an AIDS worker in Tanzania. The only possibly snarky thing I could say here is that Bono manages to get through almost the entire clip without any kind of eyewear.

    BACKSTAGE IN THE PRESS ROOM from Shirley Halperin: Fergie reveals that her pants were actually pleather, and she calls cartwheels “walkovers.” Continues Fergie: “Thanks to mom for taking me to all those gymnastics classes all those years. I actually do that song for my show and I do the walkovers during the huge guitar solo, so I decided to throw it in there for my fans. And why not?”

    Peyton and Eli Manning come out to introduce a package of their visit to a school in New Orleans, their hometown.

    Bono passes the video baton to Annie Lennox in South Africa. She’s taking four brothers, who have literally lost every single family member they have to AIDS, to get tested for HIV. When Annie loses it on camera, I lose it too. Then she comes on stage and sings a version of “Many Rivers to Cross” that I will never forget for the rest of my life.

    Jimmy Kimmel comes on stage and riffs on Simon Cowell and his “nipples the size of pepper mills.” Again, the bit goes on a bit too long. It’s actually by way of introducing Simon’s video package, which follows his visit to a New York City single mother struggling to provide health care to her two children. Back on stage, Simon introduces Carrie Underwood, who sings the George Michael ballad “Praying for Time,” and brings us to our intermission.

    During intermission, a massive line forms in front of Jordin Sparks for autographs and photographs. It gets so crushed and crazy that someone with a headset eventually takes Jordin out of the theater until the intermission is over. Alas, no one really bothers Elliott Yamin.

    BACKSTAGE IN THE PRESS ROOM from Shirley Halperin: Carrie Underwood sticks up for Simon Cowell. “Somebody’s’ gotta do it. He’s not the bad guy, but that’s what he’s there for. It always drives me nuts when contestants sit there and argue with him. I’m like, that’s what he’s paid to do. I took it, you stand up there and take it like a man!”

    Love her dress in that pic Lady G posted. She looks fantastic.

    Cook, are you around?

  • tidbit

    more:

    We come back from intermission to Gloria Estefan telling us to “Get on Your Feet,” which we all do. (Except for Simon and Randy.) The So You Think You Can Dancers come back on stage — we’re talking Dmitri and Pasha with their shirts completely unbuttoned — and Sheila E gets a little, er, passionate with her drums.

    Just when it looks like Sarah Silverman is going to be able to get through her introduction of Forest and Keisha Whitaker’s video package about malaria without making me laringe (that is, laugh and cringe), she somehow manages to disparage Mrs. Whitaker. In a laringe-y way.

    After Forest Whitaker finishes explaining that it only takes a $10 mosquito net to protect people in sub-Saharan Africa from the ravages of malaria, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown pops on screen and pledges that his country will donate 20 million mosquito nets, $200 million worth of aid. Your pledge to watch and/or donate to Idol Gives Back doesn’t seem all that taxing in comparison now, huh?

    Reese Witherspoon comes on stage, the crowd roars with excitement, and we have our first gaffe of the night. Just as Reese begins to speak, Debbie the Stage Manager races on stage and asks Reese to do her entrance again. “Pretend you didn’t see me,” chirps Witherspoon. We do; if anything, the audience is even louder for her second entrance. Witherspoon introduces a video of her visit to a Freedom School in New Orleans, an after-school program administered by the Children’s Defense fund.

    Dane Cook introduces a clip from a longer film of Alicia Keys’ journey across three African countries.

    BACKSTAGE IN THE PRESS ROOM from Shirley Halperin: Dane Cook talked about why he got involved with Idol Gives Back. “I watched this from the comfort of my bed last year. I’ve seen and been a part of many charity events throughout my career, but I don’t think I’ve ever been so rocked by what I saw. Nigel got in touch with me and I said, ‘Don’t even finish the sentence. If it’s not the show, if it’s an offshoot, if it’s a show I can do at a comedy club, I would love to help out.’”

    After the most complex stage set-up of the night, Miley Cyrus takes to the stage once more, this time singing “See You Again.” Two of her six fog machines malfunction and never fire.

  • tidbit

    BACKSTAGE IN THE PRESS ROOM from Shirley Halperin: As Lennox talks to the press, she notices people are distracted and asks who’s on the monitor. It’s Miley Cyrus. Annie jokes: “You can switch it off then? I’m on stage [here]. Just being silly!”

    Miley introduces a video of a trip she and her father took to rural Kentucky, during which the crew sets up a judges’ table on stage. Ryan then introduces the winner of the new “Russian Idol”: Robin Williams in a loud, Moscow-meets-Liberace shirt. Needless to say, this routine wears out its welcome, though not before Williams suggests Paula could easily win Russian’s newest reality competition series, So You Think You Can Drink.

    David Spade (?) introduces a video of Brad Pitt working in New Orleans to rebuild people’s homes. Then Pitt himself comes on stage, and the audience enters into a near meltdown. After everyone finally calms down, Pitt’s mic malfunctions, forcing Debbie the Stage Manager to come out and fiddle with it. She also provided the night’s best line: “I just needed a reason to touch him.”

    His mic fixed, Pitt introduces a clip of Daughtry (the band) traveling throughout Uganda while performing “What About Now” to a single village.

    BACKSTAGE IN THE PRESS ROOM from Shirley Halperin: Miley Cyrus makes a shocking confession. “I’m so excited to be here but I’ve never seen an episode [of Idol] ever. I never have time to really get into it and see every episode. I kind of read about it in the magazines. Dancing with the Stars — that’s the only [show] I got involved in.”

    Bono’s back, and he’s impressed that Chris Daughtry got his entire band to come with him to Uganda. “I have got to speak to the Edge about this,” chuckles the U2 frontman, who then goes on to introduce the long-promised videos of support from Hillary Clinton, John McCain and Barack Obama. McCain’s video isn’t as awful as Nigel suggested, but the audio is so echo-y that it’s hard to understand him. The production value for Clinton and Obama’s videos aren’t exactly Spielbergian either, but they do just fine.

    The judges are no longer in their seats, and won’t be for the rest of the night.

    Forest and Keisha Whitaker share another video of their time visiting the cement shack that plays home to three Angolan orphans.

    For the penultimate performance of the night, Mariah Carey sings “Fly Like a Bird.” The audience is, in a word, underwhelmed. This could be because Carey’s mic was under-amplified, or that everyone was distracted by Randy accompanying Carey on bass. Whatever the reason, the performance doesn’t so much captivate the restless crowd, and there’s only a smattering of polite applause when she’s finished.

    In the final performance of the night, the eight Idols return to the stage wearing all white. Backed by a gospel choir (and, oddly, the So You Think You Can Dancers), they perform “Shout to the Lord” — interestingly, David Cook and Carly Smithson, standing center, get the choice solos at the end, as the entire stage is showered in white ticker-tape. (I sure hope they recycle all that paper.)

    And that, in a very large nutshell, was Idol Gives Back. Fergie and Annie Lennox alone are must-see reasons to tune in. I really hope you do.
