After 2010’s catastrophic earthquake in Haiti, Jennifer Lopez helped answer calls for Larry King’s disaster relief phone-a-thon. Along with John Mayer, Ryan Seacrest, and a host of other celebs, JLo raised over $9 million for UNICEF and The Red Cross. JLo is the voice of Shira the saber tooth in “Ice Age: Continental Drift.” Do you know that earthquakes are a common side effect of the Earth’s plates shifting, which can also cause continental drift? Like how we came full circle there?!

Back in 2010, Drizzy embarked on the eco-friendly “Away From Home” tour. The tour was part of the 5th Annual Campus Consciousness Tour, and it promoted eco-friendliness on college campuses around the nation. Drake used biodiesel fuel in his tour bus and recycled products on the bus and backstage. What did Drake say to Planet Earth? Thank Me Later! Hahahaha…haha…ha? Mkay, not funny. Drake portrays Ethan the wooly mammoth in “Continental Drift.”

Nicki Minaj’s backside may or may not be certifiably organic, but she’s all about eco-friendliness. She attended Runway to Green’s environmental awareness fashion show, and even rocked a green wig during her performance. Nicki voices Steffie the wooly mammoth in the film. Which of her many voices do you think she’ll be using?

Queen Latifah recently visited “The Martha Stewart Show,” where she learned how to make this amaaazing necklace out of a recycled t-shirt. All you need is a t-shirt, a ruler, and some scissors to turn an old shirt into a new accessory! The Queen returns to “Ice Age” as Ellie the mammoth, and has said that she enjoys playing the character because her nephews are so into it.

JLo, Drake, Nicki, and Queen Latifah will be joined on screen by Ray Romano, John Leguizamo, “Glee” star Heather Morris, and actress Keke Palmer, who we recently spoke to about her anti-bullying efforts. To learn more about how you can help our lovely continent, peep the action links below!
