I was listening to Russ Parr here in DC and he was joking about 50 Cent doing a Bat Mitzvah. I thought he was bullshyttin', but I found the article: The Jewish War Profiteer, Gangsta Rap, and 13 Year Old Girls

Now the damndest thing about this is that it was for the daughter of a rich "war profiteer". Not that I would expect 50 to know his azz from his elbow in regards to this, but I like the angle of the article:

Why the world's best 13th birthday party has Iraq vets' blood boiling On the day the President told the American people to prepare for the long haul in Iraq, here’s a story that seems to perfectly sum up our priorities as a nation. They’re calling it Mitzvahpalooza. It may go down in history as the world’s most obscene birthday party (eat your heart out Dennis Kozlowski). David H. Brooks, CEO of bulletproof vest maker DHB Industries, spared no expense for his 13-year old daughter’s entry into adulthood. The girl and 300 of her closest BFFs were entertained recently in New York’s Rainbow Room by Don Henley, Stevie Nicks, Kenny G, Aerosmith and, believe it or not, 50 Cent (I guess 500 large can make you forget all about street cred). It was hosted by Tom Petty. The reported cost: $10 million.

It's some pretty heavy stuff. Check it out.
