INSIDER TRADING NOT THIS MAN’S WORST CRIME…

October 20, 2009

While the arrest of prominent hedge fund founder Raj Rajaratnam should come as only a modest surprise, the most shocking detail of his investigation has nothing to do with equities. At a birthday party for himself, he paid Kenny Rogers $4mm to come over and sing the same song 12 times! Its offensive, bizzare and fucking awesome all at the same time. What’s even more ridiculous is that Kenny Rogers wouldn’t play the song for a thirteenth time?! If someone is paying you $4mm to play a single song, you play that damn song, Kenny Rogers. Until he runs out of angel dust and decides to go to Taco Bell, you play that song. Too much pride to do a private show for four milli? Maybe you could do another duets LP instead. You’ve got to be kidding me, Kenny Rogers. If a man is going to pay you seven figures to play your lame song, you play with pasties on and a thong if he asks you. The most outrageous part of all of this is that Kenny Rogers’ pride is worth more than four mil. Spare me, Kenneth.

I cant decide what’s worse, defrauding investors or spending 1/18th the GDP of the nation of Kiribati on a single Kenny Rogers song. I’m getting the remaining members of TLC to do a show on top of a burning airplane for that kind of cash. I’m getting a lap dance from Miley while Billy Ray plays Achy-Breaky Heart in the background for four milli-yon in cash. At the same time, it might be the most baller move of all time…
