Pharrell Williams marries Helen Lasichanh in Florida; Usher, Busta Rhymes perform mini concert at ceremony

Hundreds are expected to attend a concert by Syrian-American musician Malek Jandali that aims to raise money for refugees, especially children. Part of the money will go toward Jandalis efforts to take music and concerts to refugees in camps, he said. The event has become somewhat controversial in parts of the Arab-American community. Some are refusing to take part because its being held at a Jewish center, organizers said. Others oppose it because the musician and some of the organizers oppose Syrian President Bashar Assad. Jandali and others helping to organize the concert said its unfortunate there is division over an event intended to help children. Jandali said the Jewish center was selected for the concert on purpose because he wants people to cross through social and political barriers so we can be human. Stop dividing our noble cause with silly things, he said. Dr. Yahya Basha of West Bloomfield , who is of Syrian descent and a longtime leader in the Arab-American and Muslim-American communities, supports the concert. He said it will highlight the magnitude of the tragedy of Syria. More than 6 million Syrians have been displaced because of the war, including about 2 million refugees who fled the country. There are about 10,000 Syrian Americans in Michigan. John Akouri, a Lebanese-American leader from Farmington Hills who will emcee the event, said: Shame on anyone who brings politics or religion into this concert. Everyone is welcome.

SECRET CELEBRITY WEDDINGS Dimitrios Kambouris/WireImage Pharrell Williams (L) and Helen Lasichanh tied the knot in Miami. The wedding included a mini-concert by Usher and Busta Rhymes. Lasichanh, who is also the mother of the couple’s son Rocket, 4, and Pharrell were seen posing for wedding photos aboard a yacht named “Never Say Never.” The bride and groom stuck to their signature eclectic fashion sense, wearing plaid ensembles for the Terry Richardson shoot. They later tied the knot at the Kampong National Tropical Botanical Gardens in Coconut Grove, according to Just Jared. The Grammy award-winning producer and his new bride matched in plaid outfits for a wedding photo shoot. “Usher and Busta Rhymes did a mini concert at the wedding,” a source told Us Weekly. “It was so fun. The little concert was amazing. It [was] the most fun wedding I’ve ever been to.” The “Get Lucky” singer previously gushed about his relationship with Lasichanh, and their family in an interview with the “Today” show. “It’s awesome,” he said. “I can’t tell anyone what to do. I can’t give anyone relationship advice.

Perhaps it’s subliminal messaging ?! Ok, it’s probably not subliminal messaging… Whatever it is, One Direction have it and it’s making girls around the world go bonkers! Unsurprisingly, young Kiwi girls are far from immune. Screaming tweens turned out in droves for One Direction’s second sold out concert, at Auckland’s Vector Arena. Brandishing signs and posters, some of which read “Niall, Irish you were naked”, “Marry me Harry” and “Date me I’m a llama tamer”. The band has come a long way since their X Factor days and they seem to be right at home with their superstar status, but it’s hard to believe that they would ever get used to the high pitched shrieks of their fans. Video After a quick opening set from Aussi pop rock band 5 Seconds of Summer and about 30mins worth of ads for the 1D perfume, skin care produces & braces … Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles of One Direction took the stage for, not only their last night in New Zealand, but also for the 118th show of their ‘Take Me Home’ World Tour, which started back in February this year. The night kicked off with the energetic anthem Up All Night getting the crowd out of their seats. There is no doubt that these boys can sing. Their harmonies, for the most part, seemed effortless. There were a few moments where some notes were a little too high for Zayn, but he made up for it with an amazing vocal run at the end of Last First Kiss. Midway through the enormous 3 hour performance, songs like Moments and Little Things felt like a nod to the 90s boy band stool ballads … minus the stools.
