Gwyneth Paltrow Calls Out Ex Chris Martin for Ice Bucket Challenge
The brilliant marketing plan has gotten celebrities across all realms of business, entertainment and politics to participate in either pouring a bucket of freezing cold water over their heads and posting a video online or donating money to the cause, often opting to do both.
We've seen Katy Perry in a bikini, Foo Fighters parody Carrie, Dr. Dre, K-Pop star Siwon, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, Justin Timberlake, Adam Levine, Lil Wayne, Jennifer Lopez, Iggy Azalea, Shakira and more take part, each passing the modest torture-for-charity's-sake forward by issuing the challenge to another friend and hence the phenomenon continues.

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is showing no sign of cooling off.
In case you’ve been living on a space station for the past month, the social media phenomenon is channeling money and awareness toward Lou Gehrig's disease by confronting celebrities and everyone else to either pour a bucket of freezing water over their head or donate $100 to support the cause. Many are opting to do both. And musicians have been all over it. There was Katy Perry in a bikini, Foo Fighters did a parody of "Carrie", Dr. Dre, K-Pop star Siwon, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, Justin Timberlake, Adam Levine, Lil Wayne and countless others. Donations can be made here to the sponsoring ALS Association.
Billboard has rounded up 10 more famous Ice Bucket participants from the music world. (Note to Miley Cyrus: this isn’t a “Rice Bucket Challenge”. And apparently in Wayne Coyne's world, iced water is sparkly)
