Oy Vey

At my bar mitzvah, I had a band. They were pretty good. Everyone had a good time. I got lots of presents. That's about all I can remember. Elizabeth Brooks, on the other hand, had 50 Cent perform recently at her bat mitzvah. I guess I can't really knock her as that's pretty cool. I don't even like 50, but I think I would have let him perform at my shindig. Then again, I don't know for certain, but I'm 99.99% sure my dad didn't spend $10 million (yes million) on my party. It's all good though.

From sohh.com:

"Go Shorty, It's Your Bat Mitzvah." "We gonna party like it's your bat mitzvah".... Recently 50 Cent followed in enemy Ja Rule's footsteps by performing at a posh bat mitzvah. The party which was held at The Rainbow Room in NYC, was thrown by David H. Brooks, CEO for DHB Industries, a company that manufactures bullet proof vests. According to the NY Daily News' Lowdown column 50 was paid $500,000 to perform 5 songs for Brooks' daughter Elizabeth. Meanwhile during his act (where he actually did switch up the lyrics of "In Da Club" to "go shorty it's your bat mitzvah") 50's bouncers reportedly blocked party goers from taking pictures, as well as Brook's personal cameramen. One witness said that the Queens rapper "and his posse smelled like an open bottle of Hennessy," while also adding that he spotted a naked woman waiting for 50 in his limo as he exited the club. Oy vey. Curtis "Interscope" Jackson wasn't the only performer that night, R&B rookie of the year Ciara, and celebrity DJ AM also made an appearance along with sets from classic rock legends Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mack, Tom Petty, Don Henley and Joe Walsh of The Eagles, Aerosmith, and smooth jazz OG Kenny G. Brook's paid an estimated $10 million for the event.

Also, here are pictures from the bat mitzvah. NO WAY those chicks are 13 (check out some of the pictures at the end). I'd say A LOT more, but I'll limit my comments there for fear of jail time (seriously, look at those pictures).

This is what happens when you spoil your kids the Manhattan way. They end up looking like high-priced hookers at 13.

We had girls like this running around Tulane constantly.

They were the ones who when asked where they were from they replied in the snottiest voices they could muster... "The City" or "The Island."

Just to mess with them, we would put on our best fake Southern drawls and say "Now what island might that be?"

The blank looks we got back were great.
