Lucy Liu is just weird

Lucy Liu

Lucy Liu has a strange plan for her body after she dies – she wants to be frozen so she can wake-up in a wardrobe.

The Charlie’s Angels star wants to be cryogenically frozen when she passes away, and hopes to defrost herself in the closet of legendary U.S. socialite Nan Kempner. The 39-year-old beauty is so taken with the late fashion guru’s style, she would love to get the chance to try on some of her couture gowns – even if it means being reborn for the honor.

She says, “When I die, I wish to be cryogenically frozen in Nan Kempner’s closet. And when I wake up I can choose from her incredible collection. That would be wonderful.”

Lucy Liu wants us to pay for tap water for African kids

Lucy Liu

Kill Bill star Lucy Liu is calling on Americans to pay $1 for tap water in restaurants to help save children’s lives in Africa.

Liu, a United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) ambassador, has just returned from Cote d’Ivoire in Africa, where she witnessed the threat to child survival caused by a lack of clean drinking water. And now the actress is encouraging people to pay for the tap water they’d normally get for free during World Water Week this week – to help raise $1 million to provide African children with purified water.

Liu says, “If you go to a restaurant and they’d give you tap water for free, they’re asking you to donate a dollar for the tap water. “One dollar will provide water for 40 children for one day, which is incredible. It’s kind of great – you get to go out and enjoy food with people and you get to give back in such a small and simple way.”

More than 2,000 restaurants across the U.S. have signed up to participate in World Water Week.

Madonna hosted the star-studded fundraiser for Malawi orphans, last night.

The legendary singer, who has a two-year-old adopted son David from the African country, threw the New York bash for her Raising Malawi Foundation, United Nations children’s organization UNICEF and to celebrate the opening of a new Gucci store.

Madonna, who dismissed rumors the event was raising money for Kabbalah, said: “I am grateful that Gucci has underwritten this event, that’s all that matters to me – their generosity. There’s always controversy surrounding anything that involves change.

“I want to put Raising Malawi on the map. I want credibility as a philanthropic organization. I want to inspire people. I don’t want them to just write me a check – I want them to give me a piece of their heart.”

Love it or Hate it: Lucy Lui

Lucy Liu leaving the Valentino fashion show during Paris Fashion Week Spring-Summer 2008, January 23.  Don’t ask me what I think, I’m still trying to figure out what the crap it is.  It looks like a jellyfish is attacking her.  I have to admit, I really want to touch it.
