The day will celebrate this select group of outstanding young entertainers, chosen to receive the Variety’s Power of Youth Philanthropy Award, and who, through their efforts, have made significant contributions to their chosen philanthropic and charitable causes.

“I am honored to be recognized by Variety for my work with the Vannie E. Cook Jr. Children’s Cancer & Hemotology Clinic. I am also very grateful to Variety for exposing the charitable endeavors of young entertainment professionals,” Diego told JustJared.com in a statement. “This exposure serves as an amplifying effect to the work we do. I have been involved with children’s causes since a very young age. I am a firm believer in using the platform that my career allows me to become a powerful voice for positive change.”

    That means very little considering you think everything that breathes, moves walks, talks or is under the sun is annoying.

    @lauren: So then why don’t you leave her posts? I swear, you coming in and leave multiple comments bashing her are probably what’s making her so ‘overexposed’. Get a life.

    @lauren
    That was kinda my point. You seem to find everyone and everything on this planet annoying. I’ve never met a person that everything around them pisses them off so much. If you’re not b!tching about something, anything at all you’re generally not talking

    @Guadelupe: She broke up with him, actually. But considering how untrue the rest of your comment is, I wouldn’t expect you to know that.

    Congrats to all the honorees. Vanessa sang ALL HER OWN SONGS, we all know Drew sang for Zac. I think Gina, Greg and her own hard work made her.
