Do Something Awards get done with Demi Lovato, Justin Bieber [Pictures]


Plenty was accomplished at the Do Something Awards on Sunday: A comeback performance from Demi Lovato, a healthy dose of Justin Bieber, a hosting dry-run for Emmys emcee-to-be Jane Lynch and some honoring of charitable youth all went down in Hollywood during the ceremony.

The Do Something Awards, hosted again by "Glee" star Lynch, brought celebrities out to celebrate a young generation of leaders who care about causes such as special-needs kids, ending hunger and educating refugee children.

Do Something athlete winner and new dad David Beckham dropped in to scoop up his trophy, a silver sneaker sporting angel wings presented by chef Gordon Ramsay.

"Ramsay's supposed to be 'round my house now cooking my children dinner," Beckham joked. Having just welcomed his first daughter with wife Victoria, the father of four touched on the importance of teaching his kids to give back.

"The best example I can give them is to show them to give back, and let them know they can help change the world," Beckham said.

Bieber was honored for his work with Pencils of Promise, which builds schools around the world, and was quite excited getting handed his prize by geek pinup Olivia Munn. Olivia Wilde, Sophia Bush and Tyra Banks were other big winners, with Kristen Bell, Zachary Levi, Nick Cannon and Kerry Washington among the presenters.

Demi Lovato capped the show with her first TV performance since her slow climb back to work from rehab. Kim Kardashian, who described herself as a longtime pal, introduced the singer. Fog machines and Texas hair brought lots of drama as Lovato crooned "Skyscraper" with surprising skill.

Young female fans, of which there were plenty, screamed messages of support while the former "Sonny With a Chance" star's gear and lights were being set up.

"You're an inspiration, Demi!" one fan shouted.

That seemed to be theme, which will go wide when the special airs Thursday on VH1.

Mann brought along her husband, producer and director Judd Apatow, who gazed upon another star couple: "True Blood" hunk Joe Manganiello and fiancée Audra Marie.

Jason Bateman and Judd Apatow Guests mingled with Details editor Dan Peres over cocktails before a sit-down dinner for 30 commenced. 

Reynolds dished a bit in the cover story about his split from Scarlett Johansson. Well, dished that their divorce had no business being discussed publicly.

"The media was not invited to my marriage, and they're definitely not invited into the divorce," he said.

Though exclusive, his Monday gathering certainly looked more inviting.

Exclusive: Olivia Wilde, producer Scott Stuber top 2011 Chrysalis honors

Olivia wilde "Tron" beauty Olivia Wilde  will get a little more than a light show come June -- she's one of several honorees at the annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball, a celeb-fave charity event that raises money for the homeless.

On June 11, Wilde will be celebrated for her contributions alongside Hollywood producer Scott Stuber ("Your Highness") and William Morris Endeavor partner Richard Weitz

"Each year, the Butterfly Ball allows us to raise critical funds-and now, given the current economic climate, this support is needed more than ever before," Chrysalis CEO Mark Loranger tells the Ministry.

Chrysalis is unique in that the LA county nonprofit focuses heavily on building self-sufficiency in the homeless. 

Last year's Butterfly Ball saw attendance from Mila Kunis, Matthew Morrison and Amber Riley with "Glee" creator Ryan Murphy, Ben Stiller and Christina Ricci.

Justin Timberlake and Olivia Wilde share 'cozy' night out

Justin Timberlake
and Olivia Wilde are enjoying their new status as singles -- together.

The sexy pair rolled out to the Roxbury on Saturday, seated together in the VIP section of the Hollywood venue. Both rocking casual jeans and T-shirts the twosome "snuggled" at one point, an eyewitness tells the Ministry.

Sipping vodka, Timberlake led Wilde from the VIP to an outdoor patio around 1 a.m. so the actor/singer could better hear a hip-hop set from the DJ. They left together around 3 a.m.

While our partygoer witness insisted the pair were on a date, a source told People magazine the stars are just friends, and have been since meeting on the set of 2006's "Alpha Dog."

Wilde dropped a bombshell in March by filing for divorce from Italian royal Tao Ruspoli -- the husband no one quite knew she had. Timberlake announced his own split from longtime girlfriend Jessica Biel in mid-March.

Olivia Wilde separates from Tao Ruspoli, husband we didn't know existed

Olivia Wilde separates from husband Tao Ruspoli Olivia Wilde has a husband? OK, we know we should act all cool and like we knew, but -- Olivia Wilde is married? The answer is yes, but probably not for long: The "House, M.D." and "Tron: Legacy" actress is separating from Tao Ruspoli, the Italian guy she married when she was 18.

"They have been living apart after trying for quite some time to make their relationship work," a source told People. The separation is reportedly mutual.

Wilde, 26, and Ruspoli, 35, got engaged at Burning Man and were married in 2003 on a school bus, you know, for privacy, she told Playboy. And he's the second son of an Italian prince who owns a castle. And she sometimes gets mail addressed to "principessa."

"We were hippies," she told the mag. "We lived on that bus for months."

How did we not know this?

It does explain the lack of dating, actually. Though somewhere in the back of our minds we'd blamed that on "Tron" and the rest of her booming career.

Things we know for sure: Wilde was stunning in her Marchesa dress at the Weinstein-Relativity Media party, chatting with Ryan Gosling and others and generally working the room after the Golden Globes last month -- and her flick "Cowboys & Aliens" comes out in July.
