It certainly bothers me when celebrities jump on the 'charity bandwagon' for self publicity.

However, the most disturbing case of hypocrisy on this whole "fight against poverty" comes from Sean 'Puffy' 'Diddy' (or whatever his name is now) Combs.
How can anyone allow this guy to be part of the 'One Campaign Against Poverty' while he owns sweatshops in third world nations forcing people to work 14 hour shifts for 15 cents an hour?

I certainly find this absolutely sickening.

well,its always been a case as "do as i say and not as i do" and yet people still think these glory seekers are the mutts nuts.ive never believed a word that comes from them.
the people at Glastonbury had the right idea when Geldolf and Dame Bonio were pontificating to the masses when 120,000 people started chanting "make Bono history".

I remember Live 8 pretty well.

BONO: What can you do to stop world poverty?

I turned my TV off, that's what I did. What a joke. There was this one celebrity person who put some effort into charity work, and didn't take all the cameras and the bullshit with him..... just went and *helped* people. I thought it was Kyle MacLachlan, but now I'm not so sure. In fact I have no idea who this person was, but I recall reading the article and being fucking impressed that he wasn't on an "Angelina Jolie goes kid shopping" spree.

Fair is fair, it's nice to have a social conscience. But I don't want a rich cunt on my television telling me off for having a better shot in life than some people - not because I think the message is not worthy, but because this son of a bitch doesn't live that life.
The day that Bono goes to live in Uganda and builds a house out of his own shit, is the day that I'll listen to his preachy self-loving toss.

According to South Park, Bono is perfectly capable of building a house made of his own shit.
