Spice Girls snubbed for Live Aid II, and a link to the 2005 Hooters calendar kick off Tuesday morning

Bob Geldof: “Lemme tell ya what I don’t want, what I really don’t want”

Both remaining Spice Girls fans worldwide have been dealt a serious blow. The lead organizer of Live Aid II, Sir Bob Geldof, has brushed up the final lineup, and brushed off the Spice Girls. The organizers of “Live 8”, as it’s being called, said that the Spice Girls didn’t fit in with the serious political message about world poverty.

Who does fit in? Destiny’s Child, Mary J Blige, Eminem, Linkin Park, and more.

Yep, if they’re after political seriousness, they’ve got a lineup that Bill Buckley’s “Firing Line” producers would have been proud of. There should be enough cerebral energy on the stage to power a potato clock.


Now, on to a slightly different topic. A reader responding to my column on the expansion of Hooters Air pointed me in the direction of the 2005 Hooters Calendar. Check out the lungs on Miss August!
