Pray for me too

Again something Kristen found (maybe this is her blog?):

One artist who had no gigs to cancel but apparently needed to be associated with the incident was Omarion.

Inexplicably, the former B2K singer’s publicist released a brief statement just hours after the bombings. “T.U.G./Sony Recording Artist Omarion was in London during the tragic bombings that struck this morning,” the statement read. “He would like his fans to pray that he has a safe trip and a safe return home. He appreciates your support.”

The R&B singer, in London for Live 8, was uninjured in the bombings, leaving many to question the appropriateness of the statement.

Asked by a Reuters reporter why anyone should pray for him, the musician’s rep responded: “He wasn’t hurt or anything, but just the fact that he was there and all that.”

I think that since I heard what happened at the time on the radio and suffered greatly everyone should pray for me too – and all that.
