Britney has been doing good deeds by visiting the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles to help out with their art therapy session.

The hospital tweeted a photo of the singer colouring with patients, captioned: "Art therapy w/ @britneyspears was a blast. Thanks for visiting, Britney!"

Wrecking Ball singer Miley made a young fan's day when she invited Lulu Martinez, a girl battling leukaemia for a second time, backstage at her Bangerz tour according to E!.

Lulu's sister had launched a Twitter campaign, #MileytoLulu, to get the singer's attention in the run up to the concert date in Minnesota.

The fan told local reporters of her close encounter with Miley: "(I was) screaming, (couldn't) breathe, (saying), 'Is this actually happening?' It was memorable. It was nice.

"She just asked how we were and she said she liked my shirt. I'll probably brag about it at school until I graduate and then after I get married too...

"At first I wasn't feeling good and I'm like, 'I'm going to meet Miley and I'm going to puke and she's going to remember me as the girl who puked', but I didn't puke. I was all good. It went smooth."
