Celebrity Sell-outs

"Ball-less, soulless, spiritless, corporate little bitches,
suckers of Satan's c*ck, each and every one of them!"

~ Bill Hicks

Jay Z, Rihanna and Bono, three names that may ring a bell to people who study the symbolism in pop culture, exploit the Haiti tragedy. "We're not gonna leave you stranded" - yeah right. I knew this was a scam the moment Clinton, Bush and Obama announced the relief fund. Over here in Britain, Simon Cowell is also exploiting the tragedy to release another crime against music.

But it's okay, right? At least the money's going to a good cause, right? WRONG! Read some of the posts on these sites to see what your money's really going to ...

... Totally sick. And I wonder what they mean by the lyrics at 0:36...

"So here's my theory: the country's already starving
So we sacrifice many to shed light on all of them."

Weird ... I also found out today, Matt Bellamy isn't the first celebrity to go back on his 9/11 views. An Oscar winning french actress named Marion Cotillard did the same thing a few years ago.

*Sigh* I wish these celebrities would learn from Martin Luther King:

"On some positions, cowardice asks the question 'is it safe?'
Expediency asks the question 'is it politic?'
Vanity asks the question 'is it popular?'
But conscience asks the question 'is it right?'
And there comes a time when one must take a position that is
neither safe nor politic nor popular, but he must take it
because conscience tells him it is right."

~ Martin Luther King
