Annie Lennox responded to some critics of her politically and socially themed blogs on her blog at MySpace on Monday (February 2). Here’s one question and response to the Eurythmics singer:
Please tell us exactly how you address the problems above and what percentage of your huge income actually goes to meaningfully solve these problems.
I SPEND MORE THAN HALF MY TIME ENGAGING WITH A VARIETY OF ISSUES. I CAN’T SOLVE THE PROBLEMS OF THE WORLD JEREMY… I’VE NEVER SAID I COULD, BUT I’M TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW PEOPLE CAN INDIVIDUALLY AND COLLECTIVELY CONTRIBUTE TO MAKING A DIFFERENCE. I HAVE A CHARITABLE FOUNDATION, AND THE SING CAMPAIGN, WHICH RAISED APPROX ONE MILLION DOLLARS LAST YEAR. I WORK WITH AMNESTY, OXFAM AND COMIC RELIEF, AND CONTRIBUTE TO AS MANY OTHER ORGANIZATIONS AS SEEM FIT… GREENPEACE, FREE TIBET CAMPAIGN… AN ENDLESS LIST IN FACT, ON A DAILY BASIS.
Annie has since removed the full post.
