Find me a celebrity who hasn't been to rehab in 2007. Seems like they've all been heading there, don't it? Robbie Williams, the UK's top-selling solo artist ever hit an Arizona rehab back in February for a reported addiction to anit-depressants. But he appears to have turned his rehab experience into something really quite good.

While the year may have started out rough for him, it looks like he's ending it in a good place both literally and figuratively - the Union Rescue mission in L.A.'s skid row. For this kinda story on Christmas Day, I say... Gimme More! Here's the story...

Robbie Williams will spend Christmas feeding the homeless in Los Angeles. The 33-year-old singer has volunteered to spend Christmas and Boxing Day serving food and singing Christmas carols at the Union Rescue Mission in the 'Skid Row' part of town. Raymond Terry, who first brought Williams to the refuge on San Pedro Street, said, "If it's better to give than to receive, then this is the most satisfying way to spend Christmas. Robbie does an awful lot of charity work. And this is really close to his heart. Everybody I've taken to 'Skid Row' is moved to tears." One of the homeless men said, "Most of the guys over here don't really know who Robbie is. But there's a lot of excitement in the air, because they've been told he is a big pop star in Europe."
