Here's Pink, Justin Bieber And Adam Levine Recording Their Solo Bits For "We Are The World"

First of all, I love this photo of all the artists recording "We Are The World" last week after the Grammys. It's as if Quincy Jones was like, "OK, y'all, look up here and wait for my cue," and Barbra Streisand was all, "Fuck that shit, I didn't iron my wig, knock the mothballs out of my bra and cake on the warpaint to not get my damn picture taken!"

Good ol' Babs, always taking the classy road. And speaking of classy, MTV threw this video up today of Pink, Justin Bieber, Adam Levine, Mary J. Blige (who sounds like she's blowing out her vocal chords) and Akon recording their solos for the new version of "We Are The World."

You know, because when one thinks of artists who harbor a genuine, charitable concern for the welfare of others, one thinks of Akon.

All I really want to know is this: where the hell was Ke$ha?

    Adam's all about the charity (and looking hot). I think he's gunning to be the next Bono (who rarely looked hot).

    Work it, Barbra! At least one diva is bringing some GLAMOUR to this shiteous affair.

    Haha, Usher is looking towards the camera too.

    I wonder why there are so many charity recordings for Haiti compared with other recent natural disasters. I don't remember anything like this for the tsunami or Hurricane Katrina.

    hun*ter, good point. "We Are The World" was actually being re-recorded simply for the 25th anniversary of the song when the Haiti earthquake happened to strike. Maybe the magnitude of the death toll with this one was a factor?

    Mike, Barbra got a pretty decent solo! Giving Quincy a hand job does have its benefits.

    Paul, we need to get you on the phone with him again.

    barbra chewed up the scenery. if you've seen her parody in south park, it's funny, they have her voice down pat.

    i did an event with her once. she was an uppity kunht. told her people that people couldn't look at her, made a fuss and refused to let anyone else ride in the elevator with her.

    mind you, there were much BIGGER celebrities doing the same event who were normal, gracious and still living on planet earth.
