Omarion Urges Fans to Give Money to Haiti Instead of Him

Omarion

Omarion is doing his part to help the victims of the Haiti earthquake. The R&B star has asked his fans to donate money to relief organizations instead of purchasing his new album.

The B2K alum’s third solo album Ollusion was released the same day the catastrophic quake hit Haiti’s capital. He took to Twitter to urge his followers to donate money to a noble cause. “I’d rather u all take the time and send the money 2 haiti instead..get my album another time, hit www.Care.org send something asap,” he wrote.

CARE is raising funds to send rescuers to assist those trapped in the rubble and supply food and water. To learn more and make a contribution, click here.

    @young black and gifted, Do you really think Omarion cares about album sales. We all kno what state the music industry is in. Omarion has his own record label Starworld through EMI, has sold millions of albums and has been in movies, dude is set. Giving back to people who are suffering during the aftermath of this earthquake in Haiti means more than album sales because those people are not in a good situation. You ignorant people posting stupid ish on this blog post need to think before you type real talk.

    @young black and gifted, its a different situation for Omarion because hes been in this business for 8 years, dude got money he doesnt care about his album sales. But lets just say if you were releasing your first album and u decided to let your fans donate money instead of buy your album, your album would flop even worse, get dropped from your label and wouldnt even have enough money to support a condo, lets just put it that way lol

    @MONKEY, your an ignorant piece of shit. Why r u so concerned if O’s album is gonna flop? ARE YOU HIM? NO YOUR ASS ISN’T THEREFORE SHUT YOUR IGNORANT MOUTH UP. PLUS, U DON’T WORK FOR HIM OR WORK FOR A LABEL OR EVEN HAVE ANY SORT OF INTELLIGENCE IN U. WHAT I SUGGEST TO U IS GO TO COLLEGE AND GET AN EDUCATION AND THEN MAYBE U WILL HAVE A LITTLE MORE INTELLIGENCES THEN MEETS THE EYE. OH AND YOU WONT HAVE MUCH TIME TALKING SHIT IF UR IN COLLEGE AND WORKING.

    ITS NOT UR ALBUM AND UR NOT AN EXEC. AT A LABEL SO KEEP QUIET. YOUR NOT EVEN AN ARTIST ANYWAYS SO WHAT IS IT ANY OF UR BUSINESS WHO FLOPS AND WHO DOESN’T? I WANNA SEE U BE ABLE TO SELL MILLIONS OF RECORDS AND BE NOMINIATED FOR A GRAMMY, HAVE UR OWN LABEL AND BE A MULTI-MILLIONAIRE.

    @guest, is this for real? Nothing you said makes sence with what I said and I am not going to respond to it either, since you show it is very easy to “diss” (If you want to call that a diss) someone in capital letters on internet. I just think that artists use twitter for small publicity things for their own purpose. If he is so rich and famous, why doesn’t he just donate or create some kind of thought-out fund raising instead of hinting to their albums. Even if he says don’t buy my album, he lets us know he has this album out you maybe forgot off.

    He is probably a good guy like many artists. But with their money they could do so many things for the world instead of just twittering.

    OMARION IS DOING THE RIGHT THING. IT SHOWS HE ISN’T SELFISH AND HE IS A GOOD CARING PERSON WITH A BIG HEART. MORE PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD NEED TO BE LIKE THIS INSTEAD OF HATING ON CELEBS WHEN THEY DON’T KNOW THEM AND CONTRIBUTE TO THE COMMUNITIES IN THEIR TIME OF NEED AND HELP OTHERS.

    WHAT IS THIS WORLD COMING TOO? MORE HATE NOW THEN EVER BEFORE.

    ALL OF YOU HATERS NEED GOD AND MAYBE A PSYCHATRIC EVALUATION.

    [Reply]

  13. Whoa Now...

    Lmao. Right cuz Ollusion was flying off the shelves anyway…I guarantee if haiti was relying on the money from Omarion’s album sales they would be sorely disappointed! lmao. I can’t even take this seriously right now…

    You’ll make me sick, talking about whether he is going to flop or not, saying he’s doing it for publicity or he will have an excuse. Please pray for these people. Omarion has good intentions, so why do people always try to find something negative in something positive. I wish people would understand, but ignorant b**ches like some of you obviously don’t have a heart. Look at the bigger picture, these people are dying by the thousands, please contribute. If not by money, the least you can do is pray.=(

    It’s people in the world who exist like some of these haterz who has no life, no heart, no mind, and purpose in the world, so they thrive on make other people lives a living hell. Omarion helped out with the Hurricane Katrina Aid. He has a big heart and he is a humble individual. I would do the same thing. He has drinking water, food, a place of shelter. These people in Haiti have absolutely nothing, so why not promote aid and help others who don’t have this. That’s what’s wrong with the world today, people with no soul or heart. I don’t care if he sells 1 copy of his CD. We need to be worried about the people in Haiti who families has lost thousands of individual. Omarion do your thing and act like these haterz don’t even exist.
