We Are The World remake: yay or nay?

A lot of heat has been aimed at the new “We Are the World” remake, which first premiered before the Olympic opening ceremony:

Among the skeptics — Jay-Z, who explained why he turned down the offer to feature in it:

“I know the plight and everything that’s going on in Haiti. I applaud the efforts…but ‘We are the World’ is untouchable like ‘Thriller’ is untouchable. Some things are just untouchable. It was a valiant effort, but for me, it’s gonna be untouchable.”

… That’s four “untouchable”s  used in two sentences, so we all know Jay means business! I can see where he’s coming from, but c’mon, it’s for a good cause! I did crack up whenever Enrique, T-Paine, Lil Wayne, Enrique and Snoop Dogg came in, and almost threw up a little bit when Miley was featured, but other than that it seemed harmless.

Anyone catch Vince Vaughn in there? You think he crashed it? *nudge, nudge*

And here’s a complete list of the stars who took part in the remake.
