The Recession Hits Camel’s Stacks

You’re not the only that’s going to have to pull back during the credit crunch:

JAY-Z is finding the credit crunch is hampering his London party plans. The hip-hop superstar has found no club willing to stump up his appearance fee.

Representatives for the star, in town to watch his NBA team, the New Jersey Nets, take on Miami Heat at The O2 on Sunday night, initially asked for £25,000 for him to host a party. Even though that figure has now gone down to £7,500, no clubs are interested. A club source told theBuzz: “No club is willing to stump up the cash.

At this rate he might even have to party for free.”

Camel has enough stacks for 5 or 6 deep recessions. He will be alright.

    DAVENPORT, Iowa (AFP) – Vice presidential hopeful Sarah Palin denied wrongdoing Saturday after a probe found she had abused voters’ trust as Alaska governor, in a new blow to John McCain’s trailing White House campaign.

    Republican McCain was embroiled in turmoil of his own meanwhile, after he was booed late Friday by supporters and appeared to undercut his own campaign strategy by calling time on personal attacks on Barack Obama.

    Alaska Governor Palin rejected the findings of a bipartisan legislative probe which found she violated ethics rules by letting husband Todd pressure top officials for the firing of her ex-brother-in-law, a state trooper.

    Asked by a reporter in Pennsylvania if the charges were true, Palin replied: “No, and if you read the report you will see that there was nothing unlawful or unethical about it. You have to read the report.”

    The report said that Palin had “the authority and power to require Mr Palin to cease contacting subordinates, but she failed to act.”

    But in a phrase seized upon by the McCain camp, the report also said she acted within her “constitutional and statutory authority” in the case.

    The probe was the latest blow to Palin, who electrified the Republican Party when she was first picked, but has seen her impact, especially among undecided voters and women diminish amid questions about her qualifications.

    The damaging report could make it tougher for the McCain camp to portray Palin as a crusading reformer set to flush out corruption in Washington.

    McCain meanwhile took to the campaign trail in Iowa, for the first time after he had to step in at a town hall meeting in Minnesota Friday, when one woman said Obama was an “Arab” and a man said he was “scared” of the Democrat.

    Critics say the seething anger seen at McCain rallies, with shouts of “treason” and “kill him” heard from some crowds, has been whipped up by campaign ads which have accused the Democrat of associating with terrorists.

    “He’s a decent family man (and) citizen that I just happen to have disagreements with on fundamental issues and that’s what this campaign’s all about,” McCain said at the town-hall meeting in Lakeville, Minnesota.

    McCain told the man who said he was “scared” to bring his new baby into an America ruled by Obama that the Democrat was a “decent person and a person that you do not have to be scared of as president of the United States.”

    McCain’s comments drew boos from some of his supporters and appeared to directly undercut the thrust of his aggressive negative ad campaign which has question whether Obama has a character befitting a president.

    The campaign has accused Obama of not telling the truth about what he insists is a passing acquaintance with William Ayers, a 1960s radical who is now a college professor.

    Palin, who has been cast in the role of attack dog by the campaign, did not repeat her criticisms of Obama over Ayers during an appearance in Pennsylvania on Saturday.

    Obama meanwhile acknowledged McCain’s attempt to cool things down, but charged his rival with running a negative campaign to try to distract voters from the number one issue — the tumbling US economy.

    “Now, I want to acknowledge that Senator McCain tried to tone down the rhetoric yesterday in his town hall meeting and I appreciate his reminder that we can disagree while still being respectful of each other,” Obama said.

    “I have said it before and I’ll say it again — Senator McCain has served this country with honor and he deserves our thanks for that,” Obama said, as McCain’s name was greeted with boos at Obama’s rallies in Philadelphia.

    But McCain’s spokesman Tucker Bounds immediately responded: “The tone of this election is not fueling voter outrage, it’s that Americans are frustrated” at Obama’s “plans to raise taxes during a down economy.”

    Just 24 days before the election, time appeared to be fast running out for McCain to change the trajectory of a campaign which has seemed to be slipping away ever since the onset of the worst financial crisis since the 1930s.

    Obama led McCain 52 percent to 41 percent among registered voters nationwide, according to a new Newsweek survey, which a month ago had the race locked at 46 percent.

    As many as 86 percent of voters said they were dissatisfied with the way things were going in the United States, and only 10 percent said they were satisfied — a grim omen for Republicans



    25,000 pounds is somewhere just under 50,000 usd.

    Like I said…lesser names than Jay-Z (Paris/KK/Lohan/Jenner) were pulling that much if not more down in Vegas.

  • Corree

    If they won’t pay for him to just “show up” ie; host the party, I bet they’d pay big bucks for his wifey to show up and host. They should just pay her and he can tag along.

  • knottmyhair

    you know i was wondering up until tonight why they called him camel…this pick just shut down my curiosity….he looks like he just came straight out the desert…twisted mouth and all….no i don’t dislike him…i was just saying though!…lol

  • sandy

    Why you take that picture? There is a new video with Jay-z on Tim Westwood youtube channel.

  • Hiphop

    Jay is a superstar, so people should give him money for showing up in a club.

  • dayg715

    uh, did they ever stop to think that maybe NOBODY WANTS HIS CORNY ASS AT THEIR CLUB? besides, he’s already rich. he has nerve charging that much for a simple “appearance” in the first place. he’s not exactly burning up the charts right now. he needs to take some of that money and give it to his wife so that she could put out a decent video. SMH.

    Stop hating!

    This economic crisis is worse than everyone thinks. When the full effects kick in, even people with no money invested in the stock market will feel it. People who are living in public housing will be in a bad way because government (tax payers) are paying the bill. Government is just about broke, so no doubt they will begin to make cuts. That goes for healthcare as well. Working people are already feeling the squeeze brought on by the Bush administration. With no regulation of large corporations (i.e. oil companies, insurance companies, mortage companies) they just exploited the American people. What these “smart” executives failed to take into account is the fact that if the parasite kills the host then the parasite can no longer eat. They robbed us at the pump, with healthcare, with high interest mortages, and with everyday goods like groceries, that’s why this country is beginning to struggle in a major way.

    A lot of people are overpaid in a lot of professions these days and just don’t realize it. And the rest of us are underpaid – go figure. There is no such thing as middle class anymore. You either Rich or NOT.
