Yes! No time elapsed between these two. A new record (low).

Who was talking about the excesses of the 80's?

I'm glad that the money David Brooks makes off the backs of soldiers goes to hire sellout minguai for his daughter's bat mitzvah.

Mazel tov, David. You've arrived.

I wonder if Kenny G and 50 Cent are buds.

For his estimated $500,000, I hear that 50 Cent performed only four or five songs - and badly - though he did manage to work in the lyric, "Go shorty, it's your bat miztvah, we gonna party like it's your bat mitzvah."

Oh my god.

"Fitty and his posse smelled like an open bottle of Hennessy," a witness told told me, adding that when the departing rapper prepared to enter his limo in the loading dock, a naked woman was spotted inside.

I wish this was written about me and my posse.

I only had Peabo Bryson at my bat mitzvah.

Yes!! I'll take it.

So some 50-year-old asshole hired Tom Petty, Aerosmith, the Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, and Kenny G for his 12 year old daughter's party? Slick. Sounds pretty much like how I used to pick out Christmas presents for my brother when I was 7.

You hired fitty cent and his posse when you were 7?

If footage of that ever leaks on the internet, his career is so over.

kickingtheground: Which probably explains why 50's goons wouldn't let anyone take pictures or video at the party.

infidel asshole that I am, I still have grave doubts on the halakhic propriety -- at least in spirit if not in letter -- of the whole situation. I mean, a war profiteer and union-buster. and by the way, he's the guy who owns Point Blank Body Armor, the nice armor vest maker whose product gets recalled with alarming frequency. they sold crap to the NYPD, they still seel crap to soldiers in Iraq.

just google "Point Blank Body Armor" and "recall".

at times like these, one hopes that God really exists, and She is vengeful beyond human imagination.

oh, and Kenny G? wtf?

Kenny G *is* God's vengeance, matteo. Listen to enough of that and you'll wish you were a pillar of salt.

"the 150 kids in attendance seemed more impressed by their $1,000 gift bags, complete with digital cameras and the latest video iPod."

Wow. . . and I thought maybe I was being too generous with the glow in the dark plastic dinosaurs for my son's 8th birthday party.

I wonder if Kenny G was the naked girl in 50's limo.

Ummm... is this really news? I remember seeing some story YEARS ago about how bands (I think it was Good Charlotte? Or ONE of those pop-"punk" bands anyway) were getting paid big money to play bar mitzvahs.

Apparently he sells bulletproof vests to the Pentagon. So, as things are running in Mess O'Potamia it doesn't seem as if he's going to run out of money anytime soon...

Apparently he sells faulty bulletproof vests to the Pentagon.
