y’all know I don’t usually curse on the blog. I try to keep an even keel….but right now, I’m proud to say, Fuck You, Sharon Stone. Rarely has anyone deserved to be cursed more than that doggie-bag of brittle bones, restylane and spoiled rotting ignorance.
Sharon blessed the yearly Cannes
Film Festival circle jerk with her glory, and was one of the celebrity auctioneers for the Amfar charity event. Now I fully realize how amazing the AmFar organization is….they regularly raise millions of dollars for AIDS research and treatment around the world. And its great that Sharon Stone contributes her undeserved star power to this cause. The AmFar Cannes event raised $3million in ticket sales alone, and another estimated 4 million during the auction. But with everyone from Madonna (chairing the event) to Natalie Portman to Mary J Blige to Julian Schnabel etc donating their personal possessions, private concerts, artwork etc….its debatable whether Stone’s sparkling (read harrowing) personality was the reason why the auction was a success. Not to mention that…uh….its for a great cause. Duh.
So I won’t let a good deed excuse the fact Sharon said this on the Amfar red carpet***….
Yes. She was asked about the devastating May 12th earthquake in China’s Sichuan province. The earthquake has killed over 67,ooo people, with 20,000 still missing….and left 1 million people homeless, many living outside, side by side with the dead. The destroyed water systems, severe aftershocks, mud slides, and rain, will undoubtedly kill many more people in the days to come.
But Sharon Stone says all that is “interesting,”…..and, possibly just payback for the “unkind” treatment of the Tibetans by the Chinese government. She thinks the earthquake is…. karma.
Sure, you stupid drug-addled dirty bitch, of course. The approx. 10,000 children who died so far, are just getting their comeuppance for the Chinese government’s human rights violations.
I’m not making any excuses for those violations, they’re foul. As are all the crimes that men commit against each other, either individually or institutionally. But before you name drop a spiritual leader who represents the physical embodiment of karmic reincarnation, please get it through your demented fatty skull that, no, the thousands of children and rural villagers did not deserve the earthquake. They weren’t “not nice” to your “friends.” Just looking at her stupid mouth leaking out those glib comments makes me sick.
AND…..if Sharon Stone’s spit in the face of 67,000+ families doesn’t rub you the wrong way (Chinese movie houses have banned her movies, no loss there.)….
then maybe you’ll feel some kind of way about what she said to Diddy at the same Amfar event…
“The Sharon controversy continued inside the amfAR AIDS benefit, when the actress repeatedly used foul language and haggled with audience members while serving as the auctioneer as amfAR’s star-studded charity auction.
“Your earrings cost more than $320 [thousand] what the f*** are you doing?” Sharon asked Diddy, who was in the crowd. “$320, are you in?”
“I don’t have $320 right now,” Diddy responded.
“What the f*** [have] you been spending it on, crack?” Sharon asked. To which Diddy replied, “No.” (source)
[Note: another witness at the event says that Sharon actually said...."You spend more than that on crack."]
(here’s a tv clip showing part of Stone’s digging into Diddy, but predictably, they cut out the crack-comment.)
Really, Sharon? What about Diddy says crack to you? He’s never had a drug arrest, he’s never been in rehab, he’s never rapped about doing or dealing drugs. Soo, what could it be?……..wait, you’re not saying that because Diddy is…..? Really?
That’s rich coming from a undead boil like you. Me think that you should let your most famous orifice do the talking from now on.
(***click more at the bottom of the post to read the full transcript of Sharon’s earthquake response.)
Here is a transcript of what Sharon Stone said when asked about the Sichuan earthquake: “Well you know it was very interesting because at first, you know, I am not happy about the ways the Chinese were treating the Tibetans because I don’t think anyone should be unkind to anyone else. And so I have been very concerned about how to think and what to do about that because I don’t like THAT.
And I had been this, you know, concerned about, oh how should we deal with the Olympics because they are not being nice to the Dalai Lama, who is a good friend of mine.
And all these earthquake and stuff happened and I thought: IS THAT KARMA… when you are not nice that bad things happen to you?
And then I got a letter, from the Tibetan Foundation that they want to go and be helpful. And that made me cry. And they ask me if I would write a quote about that and I said, “I would.” And it was a big lesson to me, that some times you have to learn to put your head down and be of service even to people who are not nice to you. And that’s a big lesson for me”
PS: on a personal note, we all have the things that we do with our heads, but sometimes our hearts are in a different place. So the rap game has been its regular rollercoaster, but my heart has been heavy with this ongoing earthquake tragedy (as well as the Myannmar tragedy). There’s also been anger. At the faulty school buildings that killed the children in China as much as the earthquake did. And at the Myannmar militia that refused to open their borders for the world’s food/medicine/supplies for so many days.
But nuff respect to everyone who has offered their help, either with donations or actions or even expressions. (Like Hong Kong film legend, Run Run Shaw….who just pledged $12 million in aid.) I am working on something with some good people, and will share details if/when I can.
But one mo’ time….. fuck you, Sharon. You suck.
