We Are the Shamelessly Self-Promoting

“We Are the World” remake: Helping Haiti? Absolutely. I bet a lot of Haitians breathed a sigh of relief on February 2 and said to themselves, “Boy, I feel a lot less hungry and a lot more housed now that a bunch of famous musicians got together and sang for 14 hours. All I need now is my very own pony!”

Or here’s an idea! Rather than waiting for a few dollars to trickle down thanks to this once-in-a-lifetime marketing opportunity, why don’t all you bumble-fuck celebrities just sell a couple of your houses and donate the goddamn cash to the Red Cross?

And finally, Jeff Bridges? Really? Like, the Jeff Bridges who’s up for an Oscar this year for his role as a musician, but has never, like, you know, done anything else musical in his life? You people are shameless.

    Actually, Bridges released an album, “Be Here Soon,” in 2000. He has a pretty substantial interest in music, dating back to his time hanging out with Kris Kristofferson in the 1970’s.

    That doesn’t make his presence in the “We Are The World,” remake any less jarring, however.

    Rats. See, I had some inkling that he’d done something, but my 30 seconds of internet research didn’t turn anything up.
