Below is a complete list of participating celebrities and the charities they are supporting with their autographs.

“This fundraiser is a perfect example of how people can come together to really make a difference, and Monster is grateful that so many great artists, musicians and celebrities have literally ‘signed up’ to help out,” said Noel Lee, CEO of Monster. “This entire campaign has not only been a great way for us to help the causes that we believe in, but to also bring our message of better sound to influential artists and fans, in sharing the many lifestyle benefits of Monster® DNA™ and the elevated music listening experience of our Pure Monster Sound™.”

Monster is redefining what a headphone can look and sound like with Monster® DNA™ headphones, which deliver the company’s outstanding Pure Monster Sound™.  Articulate, tight, and ultimately revealing, it’s as close to live music as being on stage with the musicians. Designed with both the music and fashion consumer in mind, Monster® DNA™ features a distinctive “not-round, not-oval,” but totally new, bold and striking triangular shape.  The color scheme itself is just as innovative, with the inside color asserting itself just as prominently as the outer headband color.

Will Ferrell To Receive “Comedic Genius Award” At The 2013 MTV Movie Awards

Will Ferrell To Receive “Comedic Genius Award” At The 2013 MTV Movie Awards

Will Ferrell

MTV has announced that Will Ferrell will be honored at the2013 MTV Movie Awards with the first-ever “Comedic Genius Award” for his incomparable contributions to the world of comedy, including his on-screen portrayals of some of pop culture’s greatest characters. Plus, he is just that funny. The accolade was created to honor an actor who has not only provided a major influence through their work but also transformed the genre. From his seven-year tenure on “Saturday Night Live” to playing Ron Burgundy in “Anchorman” to the title character in “Elf” and Frank the Tank in “Old School,” Ferrell’s comedic chops are nothing short of genius. Ferrell will join rising superstar and host Rebel Wilson at the show when it airs LIVE on Sunday, April 14 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT from the Sony Pictures Studios Lot in Culver City, CA.

“Will Ferrell epitomizes what it means to be a comedic genius and it’s only fitting that he should be the inaugural recipient of this award,” said Stephen Friedman, President of MTV. “Over the course of his extraordinary, 17-plus-year career, he has entertained audiences across the globe with an impressive array of laugh-out-loud performances on air, online and in films. Simply put, Will Ferrell is ‘kind of a big deal’.”

Additionally, for the first time this year’s full list of nominations will be announced during the “2013 MTV Movie Awards Nominations Spectacular” featuring a live on-air and online event on Tuesday, March 5. Kicking off on MTV at 7:58 p.m. ET, MTV News’ Josh Horowitz will be joined by host Rebel Wilson, to announce the “Movie of the Year” nominees before heading online to MTV.com for a 30-minute live stream. During the online reveal, Horowitz will be joined live in the studio by Jenni “JWOWW” Farley of MTV’s “Snooki & JWOWW,” along with a cast of MTV characters to help reveal all nominees for returning fan-favorite awards such as “Best Kiss” and “Best Fight,” as well as all-new categories including “Best Shirtless Performance” and “Best Musical Moment,” including the cast of “Teen Wolf,” Molly Tarlov and Jessica Lu of “Awkward,” Nev Schulman and Max Joseph of “Catfish: The TV Show,” Nikki Glaser and Sara Schaefer of “Nikki & Sara Live,” Vinny Guadagnino and his family of upcoming “The Show with Vinny” and more.  Voting will begin immediately after at MovieAwards.MTV.com.

Beginning his career as a member of The Groundlings improv group in Los Angeles, Ferrell was invited to audition for “Saturday Night Live’s” executive producer Lorne Michaels. In 1995 he joined the cast and has since become recognized for some of the show’s most memorable impersonations including Chicago Cubs announcer Harry Caray, singer Robert Goulet, “Jeopardy” host Alex Trebek and U.S. Vice President Al Gore. Following his departure, Ferrell went on to create and star in a long line of comedy blockbusters from the past ten years including “Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby,” “Step Brothers,” and the animated feature hit “Megamind.” Additionally, in 2007 Ferrell launched the user-generated website Funny or Die into the cultural zeitgeist which produces and features celebrity and comedian-driven video content. He has also starred in the Tony Award-nominated Broadway play “You’re Welcome America. A Final Night with George W. Bush” and in 2011, was selected as the recipient of the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. Later this year, fans can look forward to Ferrell as he reprises his much-anticipated role in “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.”
