watw-haiti-19
Gossiponthis.com is reporting that the music video for “We Are the World: 25 for Haiti” debuted Friday night (Feb 12) during the opening ceremony for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.

This version of the song, featuring vocals from Justin Bieber, Jennifer Hudson, Lil Wayne, Janet Jackson, Miley Cyrus, Jamie Foxx, Mary J. Blige, Kanye West, T-Pain, Usher, Wyclef Jean and much more, is much more contemporary than the original but it fits today’s music era. The song’s original writer and singer Michael Jackson also appears in the song and video (his sister Janet sings the first chorus with footage of Mike thrown in). They also kept one of MJ’s original parts and show footage of him singing it (Nice!).

The 25th Anniversary recording features over 80 artists and performers. The recording of We Are The World 25 For Haiti embodied the same enthusiasm, sense of purpose and generosity as the original recording 25 years ago. Every one of the artists who participated, regardless of genre or generation, walked into the room with their hearts and souls completely open to coming together to help the people of Haiti.

The video shows footage of Haiti and the efforts surrounding its repair, along with footage of the artists mentioned above and more recording the song in the studio. If MJ was here he would be so happy..

Hiphopwired is reporting that it looks like the actions of Kanye West in the past and his constant issue with checking his ego at the door hasn’t paid off for the rapper even now.
In an attempt to bring as many supporters as possible to aid in the relief of Haiti, there have been countless telethons being conducted to raise awareness and donations for the country after the devastation that it’s suffered.
Actor George Clooney is doing his part with his own telethon, but reports are saying that he won’t allow West to participate in the fundraiser which will be broadcasted tomorrow.
Sources have added that they are going out of their way to ensure that West doesn’t make an unwanted appearance.

“After what he said on the Katrina telethon and the way he behaved at the MTV Video Music Awards, everyone agrees it’s just best that he does not participate,” said a producer.

Where some blame it on his passion, others look at it as a little kid trying to just get everyone’s attention while embarrassing others in the process.

“Kanye has to make everything about himself. He will do anything to steal the spotlight, and, well, this night it’s just not about him.”

Here are some pic’s of Kanye  and his boo Amber Rose  in there 10,000 dollar fur coats in Paris for fashion week.

Lady Gaga Fame Monster Deluxe Album Artwork

This is a shot for the Fame Monster Deluxe Album artwork booklet. Dope work by photographer Dave Chapelle. I find myself lost for words as I look at all the pictures. I then ask myself, what is the artistic vision behind this shoot?

This shoot depicts Kanye West carrying the eccentric Lady Gaga.  This is an eclectic piece of artwork, but I think there is a deeper meaning to the photo. Like, why is this man holding this chic with a volcano behind him in the jungle barefoot? lol Maybe I missed the point…

Tell me what you think….What do you see when view this picture? Shot out to the homie Necoelbitchie.com for the pic’s
