If you had asked me to predict which person connected to the Fyre Festival would not only appear in a commercial, but that the commercial would eventually go viral on the internet, I would have played it safe and put all my money on the most obvious choice: Andy King shilling for Evian. Lo and behold, it’s Ja Rule showing his love for a local Los Angeles gyro restaurant in a low-budget commercial.
Vulture says there’s a new music festival on the horizon and it’s a hip-hop and R&B festival and it might be a dud. The full line-up of the Lovers & Friends music festival was announced, and some performers have confirmed that they’re performing, while others are wondering why the fuck everyone keeps asking them about it. But fear not! Snoop Dogg is here to tell you it’s legit! So don’t worry! It’s not like Fyre Festival had any big names supporting it, right?
The Fyre Festival is part of human history now; a moment in time which we all experienced together and thought, “Wow, what a bunch of shitheads.” On all sides of the equation: people who attended despite all the sketchy things leading up to it, and also the people who planned and organized it as though you could swindle hundreds of people onto an island and get away with it.
Well one of these idiots who was responsible for the whole thing and has talked about doing more in the future, is now officially cleared of one major lawsuit. A judge has ruled that Ja Rule will not be a part of that $100 million class action lawsuit.
So Ja Rule and 50 Cent notoriously hate each other. They have been screwing with each other for years, which is funny to me only because one of them is so much more successful than the other. These two are slapping at each other some more and Ja Rule really seems to have gone in with a particular social media post. Ja better be careful because Fofty doesn’t play.
Here’s the golden opportunity Ja Rule’s been waiting for! The island of dreams, Saddleback Cay where the now infamous Fyre Fest promotional video was filmed, is on the market for $11.8 million. I was thinking maybe Ja Rule would like to buy it for his planned recreation of “the most iconic music festival that never was”. Or he could use the purchase to get his Robin Hood on and give it back to the Bahamian people he helped screw over. I know Ja Rule probably can’t afford it on his own, but if he’s willing to suck up his pride, 50 Cent would almost certainly be willing to loan him something for a down payment.
Previously the main investor of Woodstock 50 announced that the festival was off because they didn’t think they could put on “an event worthy of the Woodstock Brand name while also ensuring the health and safety of the artists, partners and attendees.”
Well, the organizers of the festival shot down its cancellation and told people the festival was still on. TMZ says that organizers are now accuser that former main investor, Denstu, from stealing funds and sabotaging the festival. Oh bitch, what organizers are going to want to do is start collecting footage so they can create a Netflix documentary that paints them and the people involved in a good light while throwing one specific person under the bus.
