Nicole Richie's 'Flirty' Daughter
Harlow Madden "flirted" with singers gathered to perform 'We Are the World: 25 for Haiti'.
"Just like her mom she plays hard to get."
Nicole's father Lionel Richie, who wrote and masterminded the original 1985 track, co-ordinated the event, which saw over 80 stars from many different areas of US music scene - including Pink, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Hudson, Zac Brown, LL Cool J and Carlos Santana - collaborate on a huge new version of the song.
She said: "I wasn't born when the original came out, but the song has had a huge impact on me.
"They've changed it up a little bit, so it's a new version with a little more - I hate this word - but swag."
Rapper Lil Wayne said he felt "blessed" to be included among the cast.
He joked: "I've never been involved in something like this. I feel blessed but I was like, 'what am I doing?'
"My mother just wanted me to take Gladys Knight's picture."
Lionel has changed the lyrics to the song, while Black Eyed Peas frontman will.i.am has written a rap 'Greek chorus' extension to the track. Producer RedOne has given the new rack music a rhythmic face lift, and Wyclef Jean â who is of Haitian heritage - will apply a Haitian lilt to the track.
The record will raise funds to aid relief in the earthquake stricken Caribbean state.
