Live 13

Much like the time Beyonce & Company performed at a Bar Mitzvah back in May and [Destiny's] Child became a man, another multi-millionaire has hired a bunch of musicians to play his daughter's Bat Mitzvah reception (the Jewish menarche, if you will).

"For his daughter's coming-of-age celebration last weekend, multimillionaire Long Island defense contractor David H. Brooks booked two floors of the Rainbow Room, hauled in concert-ready equipment, built a stage, installed special carpeting, outfitted the space with Jumbotrons and arranged command performances by everyone from 50 Cent to Tom Petty to Aerosmith.

Also on the bill were The Eagles' Don Henley and Joe Walsh performing with Fleetwood Mac's Stevie Nicks; DJ AM (Nicole Richie's fiance); rap diva Ciara and, sadly perhaps (except that he received an estimated $250,000 for the job), Kenny G blowing on his soprano sax as more than 300 guests strolled and chatted into their pre-dinner cocktails." [More]

A reportedly $10-million Bat Mitzvah, and all the kid got was four or five songs by an incoherent charlatan of a gangsta rapper, some DJ I've never heard of and a rap diva I've never heard of. The rest of the acts, all flown in for the sake of the father and his friends. I like this guy's style. But next time, I say, just give the girl a million-dollar bash and throw yourself a $9-million concert with the rest.

Welcome, girl, to the world of womanhood and "fuckyou money.'

All I got for my 13th birthday was 20 bucks and a Duran Duran album. Reading this makes me think I got screwed on that deal.

Reminds me of the O.J. Simpson signed yarmulke I had and then lost. God damn it!

Nah, Trix. Your European ancestors are still alive. You probably lucked out.
