And now, a heartwarming High School Musical-sponsored break from Art Basel

When High School Musical star Corbin Bleu boarded the Oasis of the Seas for a Make-A-Wish fundraiser Monday, he knew he was in store for some serious fan flattery. And while being chased by paparazzi and fans may not be completely foreign to Bleu, how about a high-speed chase at sea by a bigtime fan in a wheelchair? After a meet and greet with three Make-A-Wish kids and their families at the Oasis's Seafood Shack, Bleu was spotted by a little boy confined to a wheelchair. But don't feel bad for Tony from Wichita, another Make-A-Wish kid flown in specifically to meet Bleu. He clearly makes his own wishes come true. According to our seaworthy spies, little Tony "hits the button on his electric wheelchair and takes off like a bat out of hell" after Bleu. When the chair came to a screeching halt in front of the High School Musical star, instead of calling security like some tools would, Bleu got down on the kid's level and started chatting. After catching this, all the other kids followed. Bleu spent most of his free time right there and later behind closed doors with all his fans and their families. Refreshingly real. Also pretty cool, we hear, was Dancing With the Stars' Karina Smirnoff, who also spent time with fans and Make-A-Wish kids, posing with them in various ballroom dance-y poses. And in other news, we think Sylvester Stallone actually moved his face to smile at Art Basel today.
