So rumor has it that Michael Jackson has penned a new song to raise money for Katrina Relief, and he's currently making the rounds to recruit artists. Apparently he's trying to re-create "We Are The World" for a new generation.
So the big question is: if you're a singer or celebrity, what do you do when you get that phone call?
On the one hand, it's a wholly deserving cause. When each of us wonders what we can do to help, entertainers have an enviable position. Friday, the major networks and many cable channels will be airing a special to raise funds, much like the one aired in the days after the September 11 attacks.
But on the other hand, you've got a bleached man-child with a face composed of 56% wood putty. By the way, he dangles his baby over window ledges. And before I forget, he might have a thing for little boys.
So would you just let the machine get it?
