Needed: Prayers for the Unhurt

Spreading that good old American compassion and selflessness world-wide...

NEW YORK (Reuters) - London was the scene of carnage on Thursday after a series of deadly blasts but American R&B crooner Omarion, who suffered no injury or inconvenience, wants people to pray for him.

"Omarion was in London during the tragic bombings that struck this morning," a statement by the singer's publicist AR PR Marketing, released hours after the bombings, said.
Making no mention of the fatalities or casualties of the blasts, the singer's statement concluded, "He would like his fans to pray that he has a safe trip and a safe return home. He appreciates your support."

He was in London for Saturday's Live 8 show, his publicist Shana Gilmore told Reuters from Los Angeles. Asked why anyone should pray for him, Gilmore said, "He wasn't hurt or anything, but just the fact that he was there and all that."



A quick glance around Omarion's message boards on sonymusic.com is really very amusing. It's getting flamed hard and people are posting fake news stories that he's died in a plane crash, to which one user responded:

Why U Lyin!! U fuckin' w/ my emotions!!! I hope that site is fake. I don't see it on CNN.com either. But imma try 2 turn it to CNN on TV, but my grandma is watchin' Luther Vandross funeral, but soon as she step out 4 a minute, I'm turnin.

Sometimes real life is just so much more hilarious than anything you could make up...
