knew just what to say to get boyfriend Joel Madden
interested in attending a Hollywood pool party
thrown by design house Yves Saint Laurent. "I tried to get him to come and he was like, 'No!' and then I said, 'There's water ballet.' and he said, 'Alright! I'm there.'" Richie's rocker was quick to agree that a planned performance by world-class water dance troupe Aquartistes was the big draw. "I was in my suit in five minutes flat," said Madden, whoalong with Ashton Kutcher
and Demi Moore
, Minnie Driver
and Sophia Bush
got a front row seat for the entertainment. The evening benifited Center Dance Arts
, which helps fund outreach programs that bring dance to at-risk and disadvantaged children.
