oh, HELL NO! simon cowell got wind that quincy jones was going to do a 25th anniversary edition of "we are the world". o.k., whatever.
quincy jones and lionel richie (and michael jackson chimed in with "we are the children" and possibly a "shamoan" or two) wrote the thing, so again. whatever.
but simon has proven his evilness by using for "his" "charity" single a real song. a song that wasn't stupid... he's using "everybody hurts" by r.e.m.
only, he's lined up some singers... honestly, I stopped reading after the second name because that name is MILEY CYRUS. oh, hell no, she can't sing even a little at all. wtf? this is sick and wrong. the first name was susan boyle. hello, michael stipe sings perfectly well.
I assume this is for haiti which, if so, is kind of mean. "everybody hurts"? I didn't just have a building fall on me, so i'd say my pain level is something i don't want to complain to people in haiti about.
also... we don't really need "awareness" about haiti. they straight up need help. so, why not stop with all the nonsense and just send the fucking money straight to them NOW? yes, there's less showing off. but, if assholes could refrain from skimming money from charities more money could be sent faster.
and isn't helping people what charity is about?
however, simon cowell is still dead to me. there was no need to expose the public to miley cyrus trying to cover people who can actually sing.
