Yes, yes, I know it’s good to Help Haiti, but can’t rich celebrities such as Mariah Carey, Leona Lewis, Mr. Jon Bon Jovi and Her Majesty Susan Boyle just whip out their novelty-sized wallets and write some huge check instead of ruining a perfectly good song?
I know it’s a stretch to call REM’s Everybody Hurts a “perfectly good” song. But while it’s certainly no Radio Free Europe, at least I used to be able to sit through it with puking. Not anymore! I’m daintily wiping the chunks off my face as we speak and the song’s only halfway done. (OMG, shut UP Rod Stewart!)
This is all to say no more charity singles. No, they don’t know it’s Christmas and even if they did they probably wouldn’t care cause who thinks about Santa Claus when they’re f*cking starving? Do they know it’s Groundhog Day? Do they know the Sex and the City movie premieres in four months? NO! “They” don’t give a shit!
If celebrities want to help, maybe they should make an actual (anonymous) donation like everyone else instead of using tragedy as an opportunity to pimp themselves out one more time. Also this song is egregiously bad. The end.
