Pray, won’t you, for this uninjured American jackass in London. Pray that he’s not murdered within the next 24 hours.
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.”
Omarion was the teenaged lead singer of the chart-topping band B2K before going solo. The 20-year-old’s first solo album “O” debuted at No. 1 of Billboard charts earlier this year.
