Kanye West, N.E.R.D. and Wyclef Jean Reportedly Slated for DNC Events
According reports filed by NME and the Washington Post, Kanye West is reportedly in talks with AT&T to perform at a party being thrown on behalf of Bono's One Campaign, a non-partisan organization whose primary mission is to raise public awareness in the areas of global poverty, hunger and disease. N.E.R.D., the group led by Pharrell Williams, and Wyclef Jean, meanwhile, have allegedly been tapped to perform at an event being co-presented by MTV and Rock the Vote. Both papers also claim that a litany of high profile Hollywood types, such as Ben Affleck, Scarlet Johansson, Forest Whitaker, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Ed Norton Jr., will also be in town during the week of the covention. Buckle up: There's only forty shopping days left until the DNC, without question the most high profile event to hit the Mile High City since All-Star Weekend in 2005. -- Dave Herrera
