    George Michael Begs There Won't Be A 'Band Aid 2'

    (2/28/03, 6 p.m. ET) -- Anti-war activist George Michael says most other pop acts are too lightweight to carry off a peace protest song. Michael is criticizing plans by Lee Ryan of British boy band Blue to gather such stars as Justin Timberlake, Pink, and Kylie Minogue for song for peace in the spirit of Band Aid, the 1984 record in aid of Ethiopian famine relief.

    "I'm begging, I'm hoping that there will not be a Band Aid 2 because the reality is that very, very few people in the industry now that you're hearing on the radio make their money from their own hearts and minds," said Michael on the BBC Hardtalk program. "They make their money from singing the words of others, and so therefore the weight of something called Band Aid 2 would be incredibly slight."

    Michael performed on Band Aid's "Do They Know It's Christmas?" in 1984.

    I think he was actually comparing the musicians of the Band Aid era (Paul McCartney, U2, David Bowie, Sting, etc.) to those of today, not just himself. And who knows-maybe the pop stars of today truly are anti-war. Maybe I'm just cynical and getting old, but I just find it hard to take these types of musical acts seriously, either as musicians or as activists.

    Right, but to put himself in the league of U2, McCartney and Bowie is laughable even though he was in Band Aid. Isnt he singing a Don McClean song now along with his own in protest of the war? Seems to me he doesn't want others to grab atention away from him.

    Dont get me wrong though, I detest the Kylie and Justin idea as much as George Michael.

    Wasn't Bananarama in that session as well? [img]graemlins/wtf.gif[/img]

    He's doing his own anti-war video, he's sooo special.
