Lady GaGa Joins BP Boycott Group, Justin Bieber Up for Gulf Aid Telethon

GaGa refused to use BP oil for her tour bus, while Bieber will appear in "Larry King Live" special telethon to help the oil spill victims.
The boycott group was initiated by Korn and already have Creed and Backstreet Boys joining them in addition to GaGa. "We need to do our part to let BP know there are consequences for causing something like this. We want to send a message to corporations like BP so that they will take more preventative measures in the future," frontman Jonathan Davis said.
Bieber, meanwhile, is going to be joined by Cameron Diaz, Robert Redford, Kathy Griffin and Sting. Aired Monday night, June 21 at 8 P.M. EDT (midnight GMT), the gig will feature the guest stars sitting down with Larry King for interview and taking viewers calls and donations at the phone banks.

"The Gulf oil spill is a disaster both national and natural in scope, and the point of this effort is to get immediate relief to the people and Wildlife who are in urgent need," King said in a statement released by CNN. "The telethon's proceeds go directly to the relief organizations who are working on the frontlines to do just that."
The proceed from this telethon will benefit United Way, The National Wildlife Federation and The Nature Conservancy, organizations working directly with the families, individuals and Wildlife affected by the Gulf oil spill.
