WTF PEOPLE. I LOVE PEOPLE!!
I can't even believe how much money they've gotten. It's a freaking reality TV show about singers. Maybe because I don't watch the ... genre ... I didn't realize how popular they are. But even with that, the calibre of some of the people who took part (ie- Annie Lennox, Robin Williams & Brad fucking Pitt. Regardless of your feelings for the man, he's of a different mettle than other Hollywood celebs) and that British MP is blowing my mind. I fucking love this industry. It's so far reaching and has such unlimited potential. Fucking eh. <333!!
My philosophy is usually that we should put most efforts into fixing our own problems, that it would be a greater benefit to assist third world nations once that's done. Maybe that's a bit callous, to me though, a split focus probably helps less than it harms. The money from this event, if I understand correctly, is going to be split between Africa & the US of A. All going to children in need, I believe.
Teri Hatcher & "That Band on TV" (or smth like that. It's made up of Greg Grunberg, Jesse Spencer & James Denton, or those're the 3 I recognized)
Brad Pitt (there's also a video of his work in New Orleans but I can't find it)
