Why Farm Aid Still Matters

Farm Aid

This year marks the 30th Anniversary of Farm Aid, the concert event that was started in 1985 by the likes of John Mellencamp, Willie Nelson, and Neil Young after Bob Dylan quipped at Live Aid that he hoped some proceeds might help American farms in debt. That first year, acts as huge and disparate as Billy Joel, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, The Beach Boys, Lou Reed, Merle Haggard, and others joined in to help raise money and awareness of the plight of family farms in the U.S. Van Halen even took the opportunity to debut Sammy Hagar as their new lead singer, and the event has been going strong ever since. In 1989, Farm Aid president and your favorite marijuana advocate, Willie Nelson, took the show on the road and hit 16 different dates to improve outreach.

Although the idea was destined for failure from the moment it was conceived, the bid for Boston to host the 2024 Olympics fell flat on its face on Monday when the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) officially ended its bid for Boston to host the 2024 Summer Games. The idea that New England’s largest city would host the Olympics didn’t sit well with many Bostonians from the start. Years of construction associated with building Olympic venues, few economic benefits, and a potential for the event to go over budget, which is the main reason the bid ultimately fell through, were all reasons so many were wary of the idea.

Hollywood Hits Broadway

finding neverland

Earlier this year, when Tony Nominations were being announced, Finding Neverland – the musical based on the movie based on the real(-ish) story of J.M. Barrie’s journey toward creating Peter Pan – was notably absent from the list of nominees. Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, who had also produced the 2004 film of the same name that starred Johnny Depp and Kate Winslet, released a statement related to the snub (via The Wrap).

“With 27 nominations today for ‘Fun Home,’ ‘The Elephant Man,’ 'The Audience’ or ‘Wolf Hall,’ shows that we either co-invested or co-produced, we couldn’t be more thrilled,” Weinstein said. “As for ‘Finding Neverland,’ our passion for it remains unwavering. I could not be more proud of the magic created on our stage by Diane Paulus and the entire ‘Neverland’ team night after night, which has made this show a smash hit.”

50 Cent "Borrowed" Luxury Items

Source: YouTube.com

Apparently 50 Cent isn’t worth much more than his stage name. According to Forbes, the rapper, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, was said to have a net worth of $155 million. However, after recently being ordered to pay $5 million in damages in an invasion-of-privacy lawsuit, the multi-platinum-selling artist filed for bankruptcy. Last week, Jackson was at a supreme court hearing in Manhattan for the same lawsuit, where he was questioned by the plaintiff’s attorney about his luxury items, such as pricey cars and flashy jewelry that he often boasted on social media. Jackson admitted that most of his jewelry was “borrowed” and he only owns a G-Shock watch and three gold chains. As far as the expensive cars, almost all of them were rented. As you can see below, 50 is making the best out of a bad situation.
