At a fundraiser for wildfire relief Katy Perry outbid a fan for a date

Three weeks after thousands were evacuated from Malibu and the surrounding areas by the devastating Woolsey Fire, some of the biggest names in music and entertainment came together to fundraise for victims at the One Love Malibu Festival at King Gillette Ranch Sunday in Malibu.

Gwen Stefani, Katy Perry, Rita Ora and Robin Thicke were among the stars performed during the event.

Courteney Cox, Demi Moore, Nikki Reed and Johnny Galecki served as presenters while Linda Perry, Natasha Bedingfield, Alanis Morissette, Joe Walsh, Rita Wilson, Brandi Carlile, Taylor Hawkins, Macy Gray and Angel Haze also hit the stage for their own sets.

Speakers included Dick Van Dyke, Demi Moore and Whitney Cummings.

Profits from tickets sold to the festival went to the Malibu Foundation to support those who lost homes and belongings in the fire.

Money was also raised by both a live and silent auction – and Katy Perry outbid a fan at the auction for a date with her boyfriend Orlando Bloom.

Katy Perry said she participated in the benefit concert because one of her band members lost his house in the Woolsey fire. “This guy is my friend and we’ve been on tour for the last couple of years and he lost his house in the fires,” the star told the crowd. “He’s got the greatest attitude and perspective in life and he’s the coolest guy, so I’m really here for him and everyone else who has been affected by this horribleness. But we have an opportunity to grow together now.”

During his set, Thicke shared that his home burned down in the fire and thanked attendees for “lending your hearts and lending your wallets and your time to support the people who did lose things. God bless you all.” Walsh said two musicians in his band also lost their homes, and Morissette dedicated the line “the fire trucks are coming up around the bend” in her song “You Learn” to firefighters.

During the auction portion of the event, Katy got on stage to auction off a date with her boyfriend Orlando Bloom. The date included a motorcycle ride with the actor, as well as lunch.

“You’re holding him in a way that I am not excited about,” Katy told the crowd about the motorcycle ride. “You’re holding his pecs and his six-pack — and it’s so glorious! You get to hold on to Orlando for about 45 minutes… and then, you get to stare into his brown eyes!”

Then, when a fan bid $20,000, Katy decided she herself wanted to bid $50,000 for a date with her own boyfriend and she outbid the fan.
