Is It The Oscars Already?

When Madonna throws a party, don’t expect the D-list (though Kathy Griffin would have been welcome).
This was the lesson learned by the press in attendance at Madonna and Gucci’s “Night to Beneft ‘Raising Malawi’ and UNICEF,” a charity thrown by the pop goddess that fetched a plate-price of up to $10,000. The guest list was a bit ridiculous – uber-pregnant J-Lo with Marc Anthony at her side, TomKat – in full regalia with Katie looking like the royalty version of ‘Amelie’, Demi & Ashton, Gwyneth Paltrow, Drew Barrymore and that guy from the Apple commercials, Kate Hudson, Dita Von Teese, Donald Trump, etc. etc. Oh yeah, and her ‘entertainment’ for the evening consisted of Rihanna, Timbaland, and Alicia Keys. Madonna calls, they come ‘a runnin.
The event raised nearly $4 million. Madonna justifies my love once again. Check out the photos over at WireImage.
