Gaga, Bieber Are Most Charitable Celebs of 2011

Lady Gaga tops DoSomething.org’s list of the Top 20 Celebs Gone Good for the second year in a row, according to the site.

The list, compiled by the volunteer organization, ranks celebrities according to their charitable work and donations.

The “Born This Way” singer held on to her No. 1 spot thanks to her anti-bullying efforts, like her Born This Way Foundation. Gaga is followed by fellow pop star Justin Bieber.

Bieber, who sat at No. 10 on last year’s list, nabs second place in 2011. He launched the Believe Charity Drive, benefiting music education and children’s cancer, and also encouraged fans to participate in Pencils of Promise, which raises money for new schools.

George Clooney comes in third place, followed by Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith and Leonardo DiCaprio.

Will and Jada also aren’t the only power couple who give back. Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert, Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore (despite splitting up in November) and Brangelina also made the list.

(Flying solo, Nick Cannon makes the list without wife Mariah Carey.)

Will Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith: “Our Marriage Is Intact”

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are doing just fine, thank you very much.

After a tabloid claimed Tuesday that the couple have separated after almost 14 years of marriage, the couple fired back in a joint statement to Us Weekly.

“Although we are reluctant to respond to these types of press reports, the rumors circulating about our relationship are completely false,” Smith, 42 and Pinkett Smith, 39, told Us. “We are still together, and our marriage is intact.”

After meeting on the set of Fresh Prince of Bel Air in 1990, the superstar couple tied the knot on New Year’s Eve in 1997, and are parents to actor-singer kids Jaden, 13, and Willow, 10, plus Trey, 18, Will’s son from his first marriage.

Indeed, there were no signs of trouble when Pinkett Smith recently appeared on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight — with her man proudly watching in the wings. “He stood in the wings and flew in to be by her side,” a show source says. “They were super affectionate…They were like teenagers, so in love!”

Back in June 2009, Pinkett Smith shot down speculation about her marriage.

“I’ve heard all the things — their marriage is not real, he’s gay, she’s gay, they swing,” the Hawthorne actress said. “But at the end of the day, people have to believe what they have to believe. I’ll tell you what, it’s too hard to be in a pretend marriage. Life’s too short for that one.”
