It’s time for your personal celeb pep talk courtesy of the 2012 Do Something Awards blue carpet! I was dispatched by MTV Act to get the DL on the do good from celebs like Ne-Yo, Flo Rida, Sophia Bush, Joel McHale, Nick Cannon, Harry Shum Jr. and the cast of MTV’s "Awkward." and "The Inbetweeners." Are y'all ready to find out what these stars wanna see on your to-do list?!
See, it’s that easy! Smile, pay it forward, stop complainin’ and start actin’, never bully, join the activist party...and watch “Community.” OK, clearly our man McHale was messin’ around (not really though) but the rest of this ish should totally inspire you to get to steppin’ in the right direction.
I mean, I certainly was amped on being a better human by just breathing the same air as mega-activist for Africa, Ben Affleck and checking out Sophia Bush’s new righteous Invisible Children ink (peep her left arm) -- but the real pro-social stars are the 5 special young people nominated for the ultimate $100,000 prize to fuel their cause.
Dude, that could totally be you on stage next year! Just find something you care about and DO IT. Start by tuning in to the full show tonight on VH1 at 9/8c for more action inspiration from entertainment's finest, rad performances by fun. and Flo Rida plus some wet 'n wild host antics from the dudes of “New Girl.” (Jake Johnson aka "Nick" specifically asked that I not refer to them as a “bromance.” Or a “bromittment.” #WTF) And don't forget to follow @MTVAct so you can catch "Awkward.'s" Jessica Lu aka "Ming" live tweeting the #DSAwards!
