Perez really Scrooged Bob Dylan for being charitable with “Christmas” album
5:39 pm, September 30th, 2009
While “reporting” a story about Bob Dylan releasing a Christmas album next month called “Christmas In The Heart,” Perez Hilton somehow or another completely missed the point.
“Scoop” Hilton, who scrawled dollar signs on a picture of the singing legend, titled his latest misfire, “Bob Dylan, A Sell-Out? Yup!,” and editorialized, “He’s certainly more corporate than the olden days!”
The reason for Perez’s capitalist complaint?
“There is a major corporate tie in to the album … from a bank!” he writes.
The problem again for “Scoop” is that he just cuts and pastes press releases without fully reading them.
In fact, if he did, he would have realized that far from being a money grubbing sellout, Dylan is generously DONATING EVERY SINGLE PENNY from the upcoming album to Feeding America, an organization that, thanks to the recording, provides more than four million meals during the holidays. Dylan is also DONATING ALL FUTURE U.S. ROYALTIES from the album to Feeding America “in perpetuity.” Oh, and the charitable crooner is also partnering with two international charities to provide meals overseas using royalties from all non-U.S. sales. Says Dylan, “I join the good people of Feeding America in the hope that our efforts can bring some food security to people in need during this holiday season.”
Just to recap: The guy who Perez defaced with “I [heart] $$$” is actually donating millions of meals to charity this Christmas.
Hilton ends with, “Times they are a-changin,’ huh Bob?”
Maybe it’s time for some changes, Perez.
