(PNS reporting from HOLLYWOOD) Stars from television, music and sports are set to gather in the old A&M sound stages (now the Henson Studios) on La Brea Avenue here today to record a rebuke to Donald Sterling, racist owner of the Los Angeles Clippers.
Galvanized by community organizer Emiliano Zapata Shabazz-Jones, who wears the mantle of slain civil rights pioneer Ricky Martin Luther King, the assembled stars will record The Donald Sterling Song — You Are An ^%$#.
“This ain’t no National Honky League,” Shabazz-Jones wrote in a scorching email scheduling the superstar session, “and we ain’t dancing to no Sweet Georgia Brown on Maggie’s Farm no more!”
The stars contacted but not confirmed for the session include Betty White, Flavor Flav, one Pointer Sister, Snoop Lion, Charles Barkley, Lieutenant Uhura, Vanilla Ice, Judge Judy, the Rent Is Too Damn High Guy, 50 Cent, Flo from Progressive Insurance, Weird Al, Yusef Islam, Gladys Knight and the New Pips, Rodney Bingenheimer, Derek Smalls, Arcade Fire, Will Smith, Beck, Dora the Explorer, Bryant Gumbel, Coolio, M.C. Hammer, Ru Paul, and Edward Snowden.
PNS has the video sent to the “session singers” with a preliminary version of lyrics:
