Jay-Z is reacting to the new “We Are The World 25 For Haiti” single saying, quote, “some things are just untouchable.” The rapper tells MTV.com, quote, “I know everybody is going to take this wrong…I love it, and I understand the point and think it’s great. But I think ‘We Are The World’ is like [Michael Jackson’s] “Thriller” to me. I don’t ever want to see it touched.” Jay-Z adds that while he appreciates the efforts made through the song to help the victims of the January 12th Haiti earthquake, he adds that a new song should have been written for the occasion. The legendary emcee says the track’s producer, Quincy Jones, is a “genius” who he respects very much. But he also points out that he made an effort to write a new song for Haiti.
Jay-Z says, quote, “I tried to do that with ‘Stranded’…I didn’t try to make ‘We Are The World,’ but I tried to make our take on how we felt.” Jay-Z’s “Stranded” was unveiled on the George Clooney-hosted “Hope For Haiti Now” telethon last month. The song features Rihanna, along with U2’s Edge and Bono. The video for “We Are The World 25 For Haiti” premiered before the opening ceremonies for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver last Friday.

Over the weekend Usher hit the stage for the All Star Games and as I watched his performance I was left with only one question, “did Usher lose all his swagger”. I don’t know if it was the fact that I didn’t know or like the songs that he preformed, or if it was the bad lip singing, — what ever it was I hated the performance. I hope the other songs on his album are better than the one’s he did on stage. I think he is so talented and one of the best entertainers alive, but Â for some strange reason been making poor song choices.
Ush let me know if you want me to come a listen to the album cause I will keep it real.
