Somewhere Lady Gaga’s trying on a hat shaped like a tree and clapping with glee that she had the good sense to dodge the bullet that is “We Are The World 25.” Stereogum.com has taken aim at a recently-released remake of the classic 1985 charity anthem, just days after rap mogul Jay-Z gingerly suggested that the 80 artists who lent their vocals to the track for Haitian earthquake relief would have been better off just forking over a few of their millions. The site has dubbed the video for the song the second “Worst All-Star Charity Music Video Of All Time.”
Ouch, but this what happens when you put teen squeaker Justin Bieber and overrated lyricist Lil Wayne in the same studio together. Whose idea was it to include that ridiculous rap? Michael would not be pleased. Just goes to show that music isn’t what it used be.
