  Steven Tyler hosting Grammys gala for Janie's Fund charity Steven Tyler is using the 2018 Grammy Awards to host a charity viewing party to benefit his Janie's Fund organisation. The Aerosmith frontman launched the charity, which helps girls who are abused or neglected, in 2015 and now he has teamed up with bosses at Live Nation to launch the inaugural Janie's Fund Gala and Grammy Awards Viewing Party at RED Studios in Hollywood, California on 28 January (18). The evening will also include a dinner, live auction, and a performance by Tyler and his band Loving Mary, all to raise money for the musician's fund, which is named after Aerosmith's hit Janie's Got a Gun. "This gala is more than a night out, it's a break on through to the other side for these girls whose lives have been stunted," reads a statement from Tyler. "It's an opportunity to learn of the valuable work we will be doing to get them there. It's time to bring the awareness out of the darkness and into the light for these girls, for all to see." News of the Grammys gala emerges weeks after the rocker opened Janie's House, a safe haven for abused and troubled girls in Georgia. "It takes young girls in and it's got a staff, and it's got some therapists, and it's got people for them to talk to," Tyler said upon the centre's launch last month (Dec17). "When girls come in and they're broken and battered, it's a place for them to go.

Former football coach Barry Bennell abused boys in a property dubbed the ' haunted house ,' an alleged victim told Liverpool Crown Court.

Nor would they tell anyone else, either through fear of not being believed, or because they felt it would jeopardise their chances of fulfilling their dreams of becoming professional players.

The court also heard about boys being abused during a youth squad trip to a Butlins holiday camp in North Wales, where once again they were encouraged to play "follow me".

Abuse also took place at a property the boys called "the haunted house", where Bennell would show the 11 and 12-year-olds horror movies before sexually assaulting them, jurors heard.

After a short recess the jury was shown a television interview in which former footballer Andy Woodward broke his silence about being abused.

It was after seeing this, they were told, that the victim giving evidence decided to come forward to police.

Bennell, who is appearing in court via video-link due to illness, denies 48 counts of child sex abuse.

The trial continues.

Bella Thorne: 'I feared molestation would never end' .
Bella Thorne has opened up further about her childhood sexual assault, revealing she was abused up to the age of 14. The actress and author has detailed her experience on Instagram to support the Time's Up movement, created to shine a light on sexual harassment and misconduct. Bella first revealed she was molested on Twitter last month (Dec17), stating: "The world can be a sick place sometimes." The 20-year-old didn't go into further details about her alleged abuse, but now she's offering up new details from her painful past. "I was sexually abused and physically growing up from the day I can remember till I was 14 (sic)," the Blended star writes. "When I finally had the courage to lock my door at night and sit by it. All damn night. Waiting for someone to take advantage of my life again. "Over and over I waited for it to stop and finally it did. But some of us aren’t as lucky to get out alive." She concluded her latest note by stating: "Please today stand up for every soul Mistreated. #timesup." The Time's Up movement became a big talking point at the Golden Globe Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday night (07Jan18), as Bella's peers and other A-listers opted to wear all-black on the red carpet to raise awareness for the cause and highlight the issues of women's rights in Hollywood and beyond.
