just play this crap for the enemy.
they will surrender. (france did already)
2001-09-18 08:42:11 AM  
I dont think my ears can take that much crap all piled tgether at once....
2001-09-18 08:42:38 AM  
We're going to drop cds of this on Afghanistan. Although I suppose we'll have to drop cd players too for this to be effective
2001-09-18 08:42:44 AM  
Farking leaches...Let's drop them on Afganistan, we aren't above using stink bombs!

2001-09-18 08:45:03 AM  
Wasn't this news yesterday?
2001-09-18 08:50:39 AM  
Does this piss you off as much as it does me? Oh my god. I hope it doesn't offend the families.
2001-09-18 09:05:37 AM  
Jacko's plastic surgery cost more then 50 million.
2001-09-18 09:07:25 AM  
If they want to help, perhaps they should enlist. (I'd love to see Timberlake in boot camp) This is just pure self-aggrandizement.
2001-09-18 09:09:07 AM  
Does this mean this is the only song the clearchannel will be playing??
2001-09-18 09:13:30 AM  
2001-09-18 09:16:21 AM  
Man, do I feel old. I have put up with Michael Jackson for years, and I've heard of (and tried to avoid) Britney Spears, but who are these other over-hyped examples of 15 minutes of fame? I gotta start reading Teen Beat!
2001-09-18 09:17:26 AM  
Okay, who the hell are Justin Timberlake, Mya, Destiny's Child, and Nick Carter?
2001-09-18 09:29:07 AM  
Look, I'll donate even more if they *don't* record anything.
2001-09-18 09:31:20 AM  
It's not a repeat. Yesterday it was just Jackson and Spears... now it has become significantly worse, I fear. I reaaaaally hope they are not serious. Let us recover from the first tragedy before they release this into the unsuspecting world.
2001-09-18 09:37:36 AM  
ow my ears hurt just at the thought of this. Won't somebody think of the children......No Micheal not you......
2001-09-18 09:37:40 AM  
"Jackson and the other singers also plan to record a version in Spanish."

Ah madre de Dios, no. Sálvenos(ahórrenos) de este mal.

(you figure it out)
2001-09-18 09:43:01 AM  
With the risk of sounding crass and insensitive, Do you suppose we could stage a "terrist attack on the recording studio once all of these no talent losers are inside? OUr luck, the building would be destroyed, but they'd all survive.
2001-09-18 09:50:45 AM  
"We're sending our love down the weeell."
2001-09-18 09:52:56 AM  
Shouldn't this be ironic? I thought Jaco wsasn't allowed near children??
2001-09-18 10:08:26 AM  
"Jackson, Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake of 'N Sync, Mya, Destiny's Child and Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys will cut 'What More Can I Give.'"

Well, they say silence is golden..
2001-09-18 10:09:59 AM  
Silence is music too.

and the pain went on.
2001-09-18 10:10:54 AM  
and jackson couldn't ask for more perfect timing to help promote his new album. before this all happened they were saying it may possibly flop because he's simply too freaky . . . i doubt they're worried now.
2001-09-18 10:32:13 AM  
I envy Van Gough right now.
2001-09-18 10:36:32 AM  
We are the Dull,
We are the tasteless,
Our music sucks,
The words are baseless
2001-09-18 10:43:03 AM  
Who are these people buying MJ's music? I know of somebody who paid $1,600 for two tickets to his NY show. Excuse me while I go hurl.
2001-09-18 10:46:15 AM  
Christ on a pogostick!
That is just wrong. Is this the fourth horseman?
2001-09-18 10:52:31 AM  
Just reading this makes my ears bleed
2001-09-18 10:54:30 AM  
This must be the Phase II of Bin Laden's plan.
2001-09-18 10:56:46 AM  
Just pump it through loudspeakers like the Army did in Panama to get Noriega out of the Vatican Embassy.
They will surrender faster than a frenchman.
2001-09-18 10:58:24 AM  
SCARY? Y'know, I enjoy bashing the pop stars as much as the next guy. But for cryin' out loud, they're NOT making money off of this, and to accuse them of doing it solely for promotion's sake is a really nasty way to look at people. These people are really popular, like it or not, and if they want to use their popularity to raise money to aid in the recovery from this disaster, then I for one am grateful. Can't we just give up the jaded cynicism and anti-mainstream sentiment in the name of helping others?
2001-09-18 11:04:18 AM  
and who's going to buy it?
2001-09-18 11:12:45 AM  
under 30 farkers will buy anything this bunch of no-talent screamers record.
2001-09-18 11:19:10 AM  
B-b-b-bill: I don't think any Farkers would want to buy it. The people who'd buy this are the people saying, "What's the internet? Oh, you mean AOL?"
2001-09-18 11:23:23 AM  
I'm just happy they didn't post Jackson's picture on this article. That creeped me out yesterday.
2001-09-18 11:47:40 AM  
Rbcp: You said it.
And you all know that this will be a very popular recording. For cripes' sake- people are still buying MJ records even though he has been washed up for nearly a decade. Add to that all the teeny boppers and yes even middle aged women who think N'Stink is cute (like the women here at work- eech) and it will sell mightily. Thank goodness at least most of the money will go to the relief effort. I'd personally rather them just make a direct donation, but that would defeat the purpose of them getting their names in the news one more time.
2001-09-18 12:23:01 PM  
How come Mariah and Whitney aren't in on this? Oh...I forgot their insane.
2001-09-18 12:33:43 PM  
The song better damn well rock!
2001-09-18 12:34:48 PM  
2001-09-18 01:07:11 PM  
Jacko's a freak, but basically harmless. Aside from rumors about child molestation - which, if I remember correctly, proved groundless - he spends most of his time trying to live as normally as his little damaged mind can manage. Britaney is a whore onstrings, and does what her manager tells her. As for the rest, I think there's actually some genuine desire to help, and since these people can't do anything really productive, why not sing about it? I mean, what the hell, right?
Not that I'll be buying the record. I have some pride.
2001-09-18 01:53:38 PM  
Aside from rumors about child molestation - which, if I remember correctly, proved groundless

Nothing that a few million can take care of. Anyone remember O.J.? Weren't his criminal charges "groundless" too??
2001-09-18 02:14:25 PM would be sweet to see RUSH to a tribute.
2001-09-18 02:24:04 PM  
Justin Timberlake: Member of NSync
Mya: Semi-popular R&B singer
Destiny's Child: Really shiatty group. Their main hit is "Bootylicious," if that tells you anything.
Nick Carter: Member of the Backstreet Boys

No, I don't listen to that shiat. I do listen to some pop radio, and know those names.
2001-09-18 02:49:13 PM  
this is a "sign" of the end of the world, isn't it?
2001-09-18 03:10:12 PM  
Augie: It is a sign of the end of taste.
2001-09-18 03:31:05 PM  
Nick Carter of Mars?
2001-09-18 03:33:32 PM  
Lets change our plan of attack from terrorists to this.
2001-09-18 04:53:28 PM  

Thanks for enlightening those of us old enough to remember the last time Afghanistan was in the news. I honestly had no clue who Timberlake, Mya, Destiny's Child, and Carter were (although I had heard the names of the first three).

Hey, I'm all for some pop sensation getting all the exposure they can while they can. Within weeks their fan base will realize they suck, and the record companies will insert the next invented pop superstar.
2001-09-18 06:17:05 PM  
B-b-b-bill--Don't generalize! I'm 28 and I think Britney sucks!

Wonder if Jacko's been doing Britney...?
2001-09-18 06:49:36 PM  
Jacko probably only does himself...
2001-09-18 06:53:25 PM  
I smell ass..
