Game[On]: Fashion X Music: Rick Campanelli

As many of you may know, this year Wear it Loud is going to be held at This is London on August 19th. To celebrate this event,  starting from today, this blog is going to do 3 mini features on the celebrities that are hosting/performing/showcasing his collection during that night. Today, we start the feature with Rick Campanelli.

For people who have no idea who Rick Campanelli is, here is a little biography of him:

"As the lead reporter for Entertainment Tonight Canada, Rick has had the opportunity to interview his idols along with several other memorable interviews. He has been called a favourite among fans and celebrities alike. Rick has always been willing to go the distance for a good interview. It is this willingness which can be seen throughout his work that has landed him a successful career on not only Much Music, but as the lead reporter for ET Canada." -YYZ Live

It is such an honor to be able to feature Rick on this blog because this is always a dream for one of our writers here. We have asked him a few questions regarding his hosting experience and also on the Because I am a Girl Campaign. Now, let's read what kind of answers he has in store for us.

Hi Rick, we know you have been in the Canadian entertainment scene for many years now, what is one of the most memorable moments you have as a host?
I've been able to travel to under developed countries and help with World Vision efforts because of my job. I will never forget my trips to Tanzania, Rwanda and Cambodia!

Do you think fashion and music are affecting each other in the entertainment industry right now? If so, in your point of view, what kind of impact are we getting from this "chemical reaction"?
Fashion and music have always gone hand in hand from Jimi Hendrix to Elton John and Madonna to Gaga! They compliment each other and they are both creative avenues of expression.

Why do you think it is important for people to acknowledge the Because I am a Girl Campaign? 
Awareness is very important to help poverty. If people don't know it's happening, then they don't know how to help.

We are sure many of you will want to come to the event and meet Rick Campanelli on that night. If so, make sure you visit Wear It Loud and purchase your tickets! Tomorrow we will have mini biographies of David Dixon and Anna Cyzon.
