Alicia Keys’ Black Ball; Calls Out George Michael
Alicia Keys and her boosky Swizz Beatz glammed it up for the singer’s 3rd Annual Keep A Child Alive Black Ball in London. Other guests included UK artists Jay Sean and Tinie Tempah. The evening was hosted by producer Mark Ronson and supported the organization which lends its helping hand to fighting AIDS in Africa and India.
George Michael, who was meant to attend to event was a no-show…and Alicia shouted him out:
“#Blackball Uk was a TREMENDOUS Success!!!!…“but one question…..what kind of person bails on 15million orphans…..#GEORGEMICHEAL???? ;-(.”
Eeeek. George blames it on a toothache:
“Hi boyz n girls….bad news im afraid. This tooth ain’t getting better in time for tonight, not enough to sing anyway,” he told his followers. “I’m really sorry folks. You watch, it’ll be totally fine by tomorrow. Bloody typical. I hope not too many of my lovelies managed to grab a ticket. Of course I’d recommend going anyway, Alicia is great live, and @KeepaChildAlive is great charity to donate to.”
