Videos Show Audience Booing Nancy Pelosi at NYC Music Festival

The welcome was anything but warm for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Saturday night as she was booed on stage at the Global Citizen Festival after being introduced by Indian actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas.

Pelosi, 82, was attending the gathering in New York’s Central Park with husband Paul when Chopra Jonas invited her to appear before the crowd of music devotees.

The result, in a city where 68 percent of registered voters declare themselves Democrats, was underwhelming for them both.

As Pelosi set out plans heading for Congress to tackle climate issues, members of the audience could be heard booing the veteran Democrat even as she expounded on carbon pollution and “climate change.”

“It’s thanks to your help that the United States recently enacted historic climate legislation, which will be a game changer,” Pelosi said as the jeers carried on, the New York Post reports.

“It will slash carbon pollution by 40 percent by 2030, it will give a historic, an historic $370 billion to fight the climate crisis.”

As the audience grew even more loud in its response, several hecklers are heard yelling “let’s go!” apparently looking for the evening’s entertainment to resume without a politician taking center stage.

The Post report added Pelosi tried to continue her speech, saying the bill would result in “better water and air for our children” as well as “better-paying jobs and lower energy bills for their parents.”

The California representative can also be heard calling for “better water and air for our children” and “better-paying jobs and lower energy bills for their parents.”

Mariah Carey, Metallica, The Jonas Brothers and Usher performed at the festival.

President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen also spoke at the event.

Jimmy Page Once Said His Drug Use Never Got Out of Hand, but 1 Led Zeppelin Album Paints Another Picture

Led Zeppelin personified the rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle of the 1970s. Jimmy Page was a living guitar god, the band had a string of chart-topping albums, and their concerts were must-see events. Part of the lifestyle included Page’s drug use, which he never felt got out of hand even though it nearly fractured the band.

Jimmy Page plays guitar during a Led Zeppelin concert. Page once said his drug use never felt out of control, but Led Zeppelin's later albums seem to tell a different story.

Jimmy Page battled drug addiction during Led Zeppelin’s later years

Several tragedies hit Led Zeppelin in the mid-1970s. Singer Robert Plant nearly lost his leg after a car accident on vacation in 1975. His son died tragically two years later. And as the band labored to release 1979’s In Through the Out Door, Page battled his heroin addiction, as Rolling Stone wrote in 2019.

Kris Jenner: A look at the Kardashian family’s EXPANSIVE property portfolio

After turning themselves from reality TV stars to billion dollar cash cows, the members of the Kardashian/Jenner clan have also spent time building up a rather impressive property portfolio.

Indeed, after buying and flipping so many mansions over the years, momager Kris Jenner left fans speechless when she admitted she forgot about the existence of one of the million-dollar homes she owns.

During the season two premiere of The Kardashians on Thursday, the 66-year-old businesswoman – who has a reported net worth of $170million – was seen giving fans a look inside her $1.6m Beverly Hills condo as she explored the property with her daughter, Khloe.

Kris even admitted that she only uses the place for wrapping Christmas gifts and storing Champagne. 

Khloe, 38, then mockingly remarked: ‘I can’t wait to be wealthy enough I forget I have properties somewhere’, adding in a mock British accent, ‘Oh, I have a condo in Beverly Hills! I forgot about that!’

Kris later explained in a confessional that she had bought the property to have a base close to her mother Mary Jo ‘MJ’ Campbell, and cousin Cici Bussey, who live in the area.

In fact, much of the Kardashian/Jenner owned properties are based in California – with the stars even buying the houses right next door to each other.

Last year, Kris moved into a $20million Hidden Hill mansion next door to her daughter Khloe’s equally lavish $17million home.

Meanwhile, her daughter Kim Kardashian was reported to have purchased a new $70 million home in Southern California which supermodel Cindy Crawford and her husband Rande Gerber used to own. 

Throughout the years, Kourtney and her family have always called Calabasas home but the Poosh founder recently scooped up a place in La Quinta, California with her husband Travis Barker.

Jenner sisters Kendall and Kylie has also spent some of their fortune on jaw-dropping homes with supermodel Kendall dropping $8.55 million on a Los Angeles property in 2017.

Meanwhile, beauty mogul Kylie owns a sprawling Holmby Hills pad worth $36.5 million, while also recently dropping $13.5million for a vacant lot in Hidden Hills.

$20million Hidden Hills mansion

Kris Jenner’s property-flipping talents are on par with her iconic PR skills having fixed up number of residences around the Golden State, from a modern villa in La Quinta to her brand new customized mansion in the Hidden Hills.

In 2021, Kris moved into a $20million Hidden Hills mansion right next door to her daughter Khloe’s new home.

Kris threw open to the doors to her new mansion in season one of The Kardashians showcasing part of the 16,500 square feet property.

It boasts eight bedrooms and 9.5 baths, including an eight car garage, covered patios, gym, office, pool and spa, movie theater and guest home.

$4million Hidden Hills home and a $12million holiday home in Palm Springs 

The most recognizable of the houses Kris owns is undoubtedly her Hidden Hills home which she bought in 2010 for $4m – where the reality show was largely filmed in earlier seasons.

The home is instantly recognizable to KUWTK fans, particularly for its checkered floors which People reports were installed by interior designer Jeff Andrews. Her son Rob Kardashian now resides there with his daughter Dream, five.

Then in 2018, Kris then splashed out $12m on an epic compound situated in La Quinta, California near Palm Springs. 

The seven-bedroom residence has four fireplaces and an 100-foot infinity pool, and is situated in the exclusive Madison Club.

The 11,000-square-foot abode was meticulously designed with luxurious elements for peak sophistication. 

Three of the seven bedrooms are master suites, while floor-to-ceiling walls allow an open-air experience for entertaining indoors and out. 

Light wood floors combined with stone walls add outdoor elements on the interior, with immaculate designs featuring plush white furniture.

$60million compound in Hidden Hills 

Kim Kardashian and her estranged husband Kanye West bought her in Hollywood’s Hidden Hills for $20million in 2014, where they spent four years and an eye-popping $20millon on renovations. 

Kris has since claimed the house, which was once owned by Lisa Marie Preseley, is worth $60million.   

In February 2020, Kardashian and West showcased their minimalist home for the first time in a feature for Architectural Digest, with Kanye praising famed Belgian interior decorator Axel Vervoordt’s work for the striking redesign.

The renovations included a larger master bedroom, bigger closet space, a spa, as well as a recording studio for Kanye plus a complete revamp of the landscaping and outdoor area which includes two vineyards.

He had revealed that he purchased an original Jean Royère Polar Bear sofa in an interesting manner; the sofa is reportedly worth $600,000.

Kanye told AD: ‘I sold my Maybach to get the Royère. People told me I was crazy for what I paid for it, but I had to have it.’

The home features a very long corridor with high, arched ceilings that is often seen on Kim’s Instagram; during the holidays in 2019, they lined it with massive cotton-like décor.

The kitchen features a large light hued wooden breakfast table with the same wood featured as the cabinetry throughout the space; the counter tops are a neutral creamy taupe hue with off-white glassware.

According to their tour for AD magazine, one of the alterations they made was to dig up the already stunning two pools on there property and putting in one large new pool.

In 2013, they lived in a 9,000 square-foot Bel Air mansion bought which they purchased for $11m. In 2017 they sold the house for $17.8m to Marina Acton, a Ukrainian billionaire. 

In 2018, Kanye bought Kim a $14m condo in the luxurious Faena House on Miami Beach as a Christmas present. 

Then in September 2019, Kim and Kanye bought the $14M Wyoming ranch spanning 1,400 acres which houses almost $300k worth of livestock.

In November of the same year, it was claimed that they snapped up another property in their exclusive and gated Hidden Hills, California neighborhood, according to Variety. This ranch-style one-level property is very modest compared to what the $60M mansion they currently live in.

The four bedroom house, which is 3,900 square feet and sits on 1.5 acres, cost less than $3M and includes equestrian facilities. It is not yet known if the family will tear down the structures or revamp them.

Meanwhile, Kim recently purchased a new home in Southern California which supermodel Cindy Crawford and her husband Rande Gerber use to own.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star allegedly dropped $70.4million on an oceanfront estate in Malibu in an off-market deal, according to The Dirt. 

The palatial estate has four bedrooms and five-and-a-half bathrooms inside over 7,000 square feet. Jade Mills of Coldwell Banker handled the sale.

According to the site, The Kardashians star’s recent buy is one for the records. It’s the biggest Malibu deal of the year, so far, and the fourth highest in the whole state of California for 2022. 

The Mediterranean-style villa was built in 1944 and remodeled in the 1990s and again by Cindy and Rande in 2016.

The previous owner listed the house for $99.5million in March and then lowered it to about $90million.

There were still no takers, so Kim and her team were able to snap it up for a little over $70million.

The Skims founder won’t have to worry about fans trying to sneak a peek inside her beach getaway. The house is invisible from the street and the property is surrounded by a hedge wall and a towering gate.

Behind the walls, the family can enjoy the four bedroom and five-and-a-half bathrooms in the 7,500-square-foot mansion. Inside there’s a gym where Kim can conduct her daily workouts.

A large family room with an open patio looks out on the ocean. The family can gather for meals in the semi-formal dining room which also looks out at the sea.

Outside, they can enjoy roasting marshmallows around the patio fireplace, take shelter from the wind in a cabana and ease the tension from the day in the pool or jacuzzi.

There is a full-sized tennis court to practice their swings, while stairs and a winding pathway lead to a private shoreline.

A condo in Calabasas 

Kim (and her mother Kris) recently invested a collective $4,747000 into the luxurious single story flats, located within the purpose-built Avanti community, developed by the The New Home Company in suburban California.

The pair reportedly purchased the three properties off-market through a trust responsible for handling business interests away from their show, with Kim dropping $1.6million for a single unit.

In May 2022, Kim chose to expand her property portfolio in her own neighborhood, after splashing out on a $6.3million home directly beside her own Hidden Hills mansion. 

The 4,230 square-feet house is nestled between her home and the property that her ex-husband Kanye West bought in a bid to be closer to the four children they share together; North, sight, Saint, six, Chicago, four and Psalm, three. 

Kim is said to have paid $800K over the asking price in order to snag the home, making sure she was not outbid by a potential new neighbor, according to the New York Post.

However, the chintzy-looking house may not be standing for long, as Kim could be plotting to completely tear it down and start afresh, as she is known for doing.

The four-bedroom, 3.5 bath home was built in 1975 and according to the listing it’s the first time the property has even been on the market.

Two new vacation homes in development 

In February 2022, it was revealed that Kim is in the process of working on two new vacation homes with two different world-renowned Japanese architects. 

The star has enlisted two top architects for her vacation properties, as revealed by Vogue magazine.

‘Pritzker Prize–winning architect Tadao Ando is building Kim’s Palm Springs home, which she describes as “concrete, gray-toned, and really zen”, the magazine stated. ‘While Kengo Kuma, who designed the National Stadium for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics as well as LVMH’s Japan headquarters, is creating a glass-and-wood lake house for her in an undisclosed location, where Kim travels every Fourth of July.’ 

Back in February 2020, Kim and Kanye paid $6.3M for a two-acre parcel of land in the Palm Springs, California area, on the same street as residences owned by relatives Kris and Kylie Jenner.

They purchased the site for a future home at La Quinta, California’s Madison Club, which is a resort enclave in the upscale desert community, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The resort is about a 45-minute drive from Palm Springs and about six miles away from Indio, California’s Empire Polo Club, the location of the annual Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

Through the off-market, all-cash sale of the property in May 2020, design plans were approved for a ’12-car garage, guesthouse, barn, guard shack for a full-time security detail, sports court and a pool.’

She is not the only A-lister who has purchased the property as Miley Cyrus had bought it in 2015 as her horses lived there but never built a home on it as she sold it three years later.

Lovely: Kylie is also reportedly the co-owner of a $13million Beverly Hills investment property with significant other Travis Scott, according to People

Previous homes in Calabasas and Hidden Hills 

Aged just 17, Kylie bought her first house in 2015, a 4,851 square-foot home in her native Calabasas. She purchased the house for a huge $2.7million and sold the home in 2017 for an eye-popping $3.15million.

The following year, Kylie’s portfolio continued to grow as she bought a Hidden Hills mansion – complete with six bedrooms and seven bathrooms for $6.03m before selling the property in 2018 for $6.7m.

Clearly happy with her location at the time, three months later Kylie bought a house next door for $4.5m, which she went on to sell in 2017 for $5.26m.

In 2018, Kylie purchased a $13m Beverly Hills investment home with her partner Travis Scott. Kylie and Travis decided to pick up their LA home in 2018 as an investment, but did stay their with daughter Stormi briefly.

Talking about the home to People , a source said: ‘Kylie and Travis’s new Beverly Hills house is spectacular. It’s contemporary, but very warm at the same time. The property is also very private.’

Khloe Kardashian, 38 – mega-mansion in the Hidden Hills worth $17million

Khloe’s property empire is as impressive as the rest of her family’s with an epic portfolio. Khloe and Kris then built their homes next to each other in the Kardashian/Jenner favorite neighborhood of Hidden Hills in 2021.

Her home cost $17million while Kris’ cost $20million, for a combined total of $37million, and sits on land that used to have one single family home that Britney Spears once rented in 2011 and 2012 for $25,000 a month, per Page Six.

The pair had purchased the lots on the same day from Metro Development Homes just before Christmas to build their custom home of their dreams.

As reported by The Dirt last year, the brokers originally proposed one single family home on the 3.4 acre property, but Kris and Khloe counter-proposed two homes on the then-single lot.

Originally the land was owned by construction magnate Ron Tutor – the father of Million Dollar Listing star Tracy Tutor – and included a home of 20,000 square feet.

Khloe’s home was reported to be 10,000 square feet, with an oversized pool and like Kris, a modern farmhouse architectural style, per Variety.

Kris and Khloe’s homes are just a stones throw away from Kim’s $60million mansion.

Previous Calabasas estate

In May 2020, Khloe put her Calabasas estate on the market for $18.95m. The house is located in the exclusive gated community The Oaks.

The six-bedroom, seven-bathroom house is the first place that Khloe bought after ending her turbulent marriage to Lamar Odom in late 2013 and moving out of the home they shared.

The reality star made more than double the $7.2 million she paid Justin Bieber for the property six years ago, the 9,300-square-foot property became the backdrop of many of her ‘best memories’ over the years.

Describing the property to The Society Group PR founder Alexander Ali, it was said that the home is located in The Oaks, which is an ‘uber exclusive neighborhood’ in Calabasas.

It is one of 16 ridge line properties in the community that sits on Malibu Canyon boasting ‘the most breathtaking views’.

14 Inspiring Moments – Billboard

“Welcome to Farm Aid 37!” 

Willie Nelson’s greeting ahead of the annual Farm Aid benefit concert for family farmers in Raleigh, N.C., Saturday (Sept. 24) reaffirmed the organization’s nearly four-decade commitment to the men and women who feed the nation. 

This year, Farm Aid focused on the challenge those farmers face amid the climate crisis — a challenge intertwined with the nation’s legacy of racial injustice.

“Our struggle right now is beyond us. It’s cutting deep. It’s the very planet that we’re standing on that’s in peril and we’ve got to figure it out,”  said Savonola “Savi” Horne, executive director of Land Loss Prevention Project, which advocates for black farmers in North Carolina, speaking during a gathering of Farm Aid supporters the evening before the concert. 

“And even as we figure that out, we’ve gotta find justice for the legacy issues of our lifetime — racial inequality, environmental justice,” Horne said. “We can’t just kind of glaze it over and just say okay let’s all save the planet. We’ve got to really figure out ways in which we can mend the brokenness within all of us. Because all of us are part of this.”

Since the first Farm Aid concert in 1985, the organization has raised more than $64 million to support a vibrant, family farm-centered system of agriculture in America.  

Wait… make that some $65 million. 

In a late-evening surprise appearance Saturday, Jim Irshay, owner of the NFL’s Indianapolis Colts — and frontman of a band that jammed with John Mellencamp at the Colts Kickoff Concert earlier this month — joined Mellencamp onstage to present a $1 million check to Farm Aid.

From the Coastal Credit Union Music Park at Walnut Creek, here are 14 more inspiring things we saw and heard at Farm Aid 2022.

‘A Major Farmer Mobilization in Washington’

Due to the pandemic, this marked the first time since 2019 that Farm Aid began with a press conference to highlight farmer concerns — and it was the first time ever that the press conference was live-streamed. That livestream carried the news that Farm Aid, in partnership with the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition and some 35 other activist groups, planned “a major farmer mobilization in Washington” in March 2023, according to Farm Aid cultural impact director Michael Stewart Foley. “Congress needs to get the message that farmers are counting on a Farm Bill that delivers climate solutions — climate solutions that center racial justice, that address on-farm climate challenges and prioritize what works for family farmers,” Foley said.

Raising Food and Rising Stars

Every year Farm Aid showcases performers who are just on the edge of greater stardom and the honor this year went to Nashville’s Britteny Spencer and Texas-bred Charley Crockett. “My grandmother’s family is from Raleigh,” Spencer said. “But I think we’re all friends and family here now.”  In a style that edged from country to mainstream pop, Spencer sang with sweetness and honesty in the heartfelt “Sober & Skinny,” a highlight of her set. Crockett’s career has been on a slow burn ready to explode.  After six years of recording, he earned the 2021 emerging artist of the year Award from the Americana Music Association. His sound — soulful, twanging vocals backed by pedal steel and trumpet — soared over the amphitheater.

The Legacy of Music Activism 

Among those who had traveled to Saturday’s concert were Ash-Lee Woodard Henderson and the Rev. Allyn Maxfield-Steele, co-executive directors of the Highlander Research and Education Center in New Market, Tenn. They were representing one of the great activist organizations in American history, one rooted in music. Founded in 1932 as the Highlander Folk School — where Pete Seeger came to sing and mobilize — the center today works with people in Appalachia and the South in fighting for justice, equality and sustainability through grassroots organizing and movement building. Woodward-Henderson and Maxfield-Steele were embraced by one of the activists who trained at Highlander — Carolyn Mugar, who has been executive director of Farm Aid since its creation in 1985.

‘A Beloved Community

“I am a black, queer, new immigrant,” said Canada’s Allison Russell, who was returning to the Farm Aid stage for the second time after performing in Hartford last September. “It has been life-changing to be welcomed into this community. This is a beloved community and we are changing this world for the better.” Joined by Farm Aid board member Margo Price, co-headliner Sheryl Crow and Britteny Spencer, Russell brought her set to a peak with only the second live performance of “Georgia Rise,” which she performed Monday (Sept. 19) to support Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams.

‘The Unequal Distribution of Resources

Decton and Christina Hylton brought their message of farming, climate activism and racial justice to Farm Aid in a video message shown during the concert. “If we really want to solve the problem of climate change, we already have the resources,” said Decton Hyton.  “The issue is the unequal distribution of the resources. It is really hard for people of color to get access to loans and grants to implement the things that are necessary to make a change” in how they farm.

The Presence of Patagonia

Farm Aid has a rigorous process for vetting corporate sponsors of its concerts. The outdoor clothing and gear company Patagonia passed that test — even before the announcement earlier this month that company founder Yvon Chouinard was transferring ownership of Patagonia (valued at about $3 billion) to a trust and foundation set up to combat climate change. At Farm Aid, the company was showcasing its latest venture, moving the source of industrial hemp used in its Workwear clothing line from Northern China to a small family farm in Bourbon, Kentucky. 

‘That’s Some Hard Work

“This is literally my favorite event,” declared Sheryl Crow, a repeat Farm Aid performer.  She described growing up in Missouri amid cotton farms and spending time picking cotton as a high school project. “That is some hard work!” Farm Aid is the concert that most speaks “to where I’m from. I feel incredibly humbled to be included.”  In a set packed with her own hits, Crow blew scorching blues harp on a cover of “Live With Me” from the Rolling Stones. “I’m no Mickey Raphael, I’ll say that,” she quipped, in tribute to Willie Nelson’s longtime harmonica player.

The Brothers Nelson

It is a tribute to Willie Nelson’s musical eclecticism that he and his wife Annie have raised two sons, Micah and Lukas, who have taken such disparate but rewarding musical paths. Micah Nelson, billed as Particle Kid, played early in the day Saturday with his compelling style of alternative rock that defies easy categorization.  Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real followed Sheryl Crow’s set with songs that were alternately intense, playful and wistful. Lukas Nelson welcomed Britteny Spencer, Allison Russell and Dave Matthews’s accompanist Tim Reynolds on stage to perform “Poor Elijah (A Tribute to Robert Johnson),” first recorded in the early 1970s by Delaney and Bonnie with Eric Clapton. But the crowd pleaser, of course, was his romp through “Carolina.”

Missing Neil Young

In previous years, Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Year have backed Neil Young with an energy that rivals Young’s legendary sessions with Crazy Horse. This was the second year that Young, a Farm Aid board member, opted to sit out the benefit, citing concerns with COVID-19. A survivor of a life-threatening brain aneurysm in 2005 and the father of children with serious health conditions, Young has more reason than most to be cautious. But perhaps his absence was a reminder of the importance of not judging how any individual continues to cope with a pandemic that has killed more than 1.05 million in the United States alone. (Farm Aid noted before Saturday’s event it was  “staying up to date on the latest CDC guidance and industry best practices to limit the transmission of COVID-19.”)  Two days before the festival, a COVID case caused Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats to cancel their Farm Aid performance.

The Great Inheritor

Chris Stapleton himself needed to postpone shows earlier this summer after a COVID-19 diagnosis. But Stapleton showed no ill effects as he took the Farm Aid stage. The headliner of his own All-American Road Show tour this year, Stapleton graciously took a spot on Saturday’s bill just behind the four Farm Aid board members: Margo Price, Dave Matthews, John Mellencamp and Willie Nelson — but he certainly contributed to the sell-out of this year’s show.  If Nelson and his colleagues in Austin in the 1970s invented the outlaw country-rock style, Stapleton’s set proved he is the soulful, driven, muscular inheritor of that great roadhouse tradition.  And his performance of “Broken Halo” offered a reminder of why the ACM in 2019 named Stapleton the songwriter of the decade.

Every Supermarket Scan Is a Vote

Margo Price, whose family lost its Illinois farm during the mid-’80s “to greed, right when Farm Aid was being conceived,” she recalled, commanded the stage as a brilliant sunset fell over the amphitheater field. “I grew up in the late 1980s and 1990s in rural America, and even though we were surrounded by farmland, I didn’t always have access to healthy food like we do today,” she said earlier. “The average consumer may not feel very powerful. But every time you scan food at the supermarket, you are voting — you are voting for local or non-local, for organic or non-organic. And there’s power in where we put our money. If Neil was here, he would say, if you see a farmer’s market, stop and pull over and support them.  So that is what I’m trying to do.”

‘That’s a Magical Thing

“I remember being a teenager, stoned, in a crowd watching his show,” Price quipped, introducing Dave Matthews with Tim Reynolds for their entrancing acoustic set. “It’s good to spend the day talking about the people who feed us,” Matthews said. Earlier in the day, Matthews spoke of the danger of industrial agriculture practices that “pump carbon into the air.  We have the knowledge to turn that around,” he said, “to have plants do what they’re supposed to do, while they feed us,” taking carbon out of the air and sequestering it in the soil. “While we’re being fed by all these magnificent farmers, we can also be feeding the earth — and that’s a magical thing.”

The Million Dollar Backstage Pass

Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irshay asked his friend John Mellencamp what would it take to attend his Farm Aid show, with a backstage pass? How about a million dollars, Mellencamp replied. So before Mellencamp’s set, Irshay took the stage to present an oversized check payable to Farm Aid for $1 million — as stage crew spiralled footballs into the crowd. Mellencamp’s set was a greatest-hit collection, no less energizing for its familiarity, including songs like “Small Town” and “Rain on the Scarecrow,” which have become Farm Aid anthems.

A Mystical Power

Opening, as ever, with “Whiskey River,” Nelson’s set flowed like a spring freshet in the Hill Country of Texas. Seated at center stage (the only concession to his 89 years) and flanked by sons Micah and Lukas, Nelson was greeted by a standing ovation from his first note. Lukas took lead vocals on “Texas Flood,” which featured a guitar solo by Willie of astounding dexterity (and a penny whistle solo by 92-year-old virtuoso David Amram) that drew cheers.  Micah sang lead on the hilarious pandemic composition in honor of his dad, “If I Die When I’m High, I’ll Be Halfway To Heaven.”  

With Nelson’s voice strong and clear, his classics flowed on: “Mammas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys,”  “Angel Flying Too Close to the Ground,” “On the Road Again,” “Always On My Mind,” “Good Hearted Woman, “Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die” and more.

“I just released my 98th album,” remarked Nelson of his new disc A Beautiful Time. “It came out on my 89th birthday,” he added, introducing Rodney Crowell and Chris Stapleton’s  “I’ll Love You Till the Day I Die,” from that new set.

Nelson welcomed his fellow Farm Aid musicians onstage for his traditional show closers, “Will The Circle Be Unbroken” and “I’ll Fly Away.”  But before the night ended, Nelson punctured any pontification about his importance with a Mac Davis cover, “It’s Hard To Be Humble (When You’re Perfect In Every Way).”

For all the artists and music that preceded his appearance on stage, Nelson on Saturday conveyed a star power that surpassed all others, a good-natured, almost mystical presence that has inspired all involved with Farm Aid for nearly four decades now.  

It is not an exaggeration to say that generations of farmers have drawn strength from Nelson’s commitment to their cause — and that Farm Aid, in promoting the importance of family farms since 1985, has had a profound influence on the culture of the nation.

Meet 30 global leaders tackling the climate crisis 

Climate Action 30


Insider



When we say climate heroes, the usual suspects — think Greta Thunberg and Al Gore — come to mind. While they’re certainly doing notable work, we wanted to shift attention to others who are making important contributions to tackling the climate crisis, associate editor Lily Katzman writes. 

That’s where Insider’s Climate Action 30 comes into play.

Our inaugural list of 30 top global leaders features activists, influencers, scientists, execs, entrepreneurs, and public-sector and nonprofit leaders, among others, who are working to address the climate crisis. Here’s what the project includes:

  • 30 unique write-ups describing each finalist’s work and why it’s important.
  • 30 calls to action from each finalist to tell global leaders — and our readers — what they should do, stop doing, or understand to drive change. 
  • Original (and stunning) photography commissioned by our team of photographers.

While we won’t spoil it all, finalists include government leaders like Francia Márquez, the first Black vice president of Colombia; entrepreneurs like Jan Wurzbacher, who founded a company that removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and stores it in the ground; and activists like Autumn Peltier, who advocates for clean drinking water in Indigenous communities.

David Solomon, Goldman Sachs’ CEO, moonlights as an electronic-music DJ, playing high-profile gigs like the Lollapalooza music festival and Tomorrowland, a Belgian music festival. 

Solomon has been working on the side hustle for years. But some insiders are baffled by the amount of time and attention he’s committed to his hobby and his use of private jets to promote his DJ work. Some say they’re worried Solomon is putting his own interests ahead of the firm’s.

Here’s what else insiders told us.

An economic nightmare could be looming

Wall Street can’t shake a nightmare about the US economy. 

Some of the market’s biggest investors are worried there will be no hard or soft landing for the economy. Instead, we’ll just get stuck: Inflation comes down a bit from its scalding-hot level, but stays persistently higher; the Federal Reserve keeps hiking interest rates, but can’t get a handle on prices. And Americans will end up with uncomfortably high interest rates, higher unemployment, and higher prices.

What happens if our economy gets stuck.

In today’s remarkably tight labor market, a new trend is puzzling applicants: While many employers can’t find enough workers, some qualified candidates are applying to open jobs and aren’t hearing anything back.

The phenomenon is raising questions about whether a company’s job postings are reflective of actual open positions, or if they’re “ghost jobs” — listings that employers are no longer actively hiring or recruiting for.

Nancy Pelosi booed during surprise appearance at NYC music festival, videos appear to show

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Attendees of a music festival in New York City Saturday night appeared to boo House Speaker Nancy Pelosi after she made a surprise appearance at the event.

Pelosi, wearing a white pantsuit with a matching scarf, took to the stage of NYC’s Global Citizen music festival where she was booed by those in the audience, videos on social media appear to show.

After being introduced to the stage by Priyanka Chopra Jonas, an actress who is married to Nick Jonas, Pelosi briefly spoke about carbon pollution and climate change.

“As speaker of the house, I am here to thank you for your dazzling advocacy, entrepreneurial thinking, and determination as global citizens,” she told the crowd, according to the New York Post.

“It’s thanks to your help that the United States recently enacted historic climate legislation, which will be a game changer,” she added, being drowned out by the crowd. “It will slash carbon pollution by 40% by 2030, it will give a historic, an historic $370 billion to fight the climate crisis.”
