Gigs in the park are fun and all, but can they really help to end extreme poverty?
So there’s SXSW for the hipsters, Coachella for the fashionable crowd… and then there’s the Global Citizen music festival, which has a different vibe altogether. Held in Central Park, the third annual event featured the likes of Beyonce, Jay Z, Alicia Keys, No Doubt, Sting and fun. The star-packed festival is free to attend and sets itself the ambitious goal of “erasing poverty by 2030.”
After their On The Run success, Bey and Jay graced the Central Park stage in honor of a good cause.
So here’s how it works. The acts all performed for free, with brief speeches by the likes of Jessica Alba, Hugh Jackman and Olivia Wilde speaking in between performances. It was an exercise in raising awareness and putting pressure on world leaders to enact more effective policies on equality. Attendees were also encouraged to take the pledge, which would earn them points to put towards VIP entry.

Gwen Stefani is a talented lady. A great singer, fantastic performer, fashion designer, business woman, devoted mother and wife, she has managed, with success, to be one of those lucky women who 'has it all'. But 'having it all', paradoxically, doesn't come for free, and talking to Vogue, she (along with the rest of No Doubt) tells them about the hard work and elements of sacrifice it all takes.
"She thinks she's failing at everything," said her ex-boyfriend, Tony Kanal. "It's hard to manage that many things: She's got the band, her family, her husband, her clothing lines...I think when she looks back on it, she'll see she did incredibly well."
In a world of rock music, where Gwen's constantly surrounded by men, Kanal and the band have noted the difference in their genders, by saying how different it is for her to be touring while being a mother, as opposed to a father, and Gwen has also felt that difference over the years.
