Back in 2011, Prince Harry made a trek to (or close to) the North Pole as part of an awareness-raising campaign for wounded soldiers, specifically the organization Walking with the Wounded. Several months ago, he announced a new charity stunt – he was going to walk to the South Pole. And he’s inviting anyone who wants to come, basically.

Over the weekend, Kanye West was in Kazakhstan to perform for President Nursultan Nazarbayev at the president’s grandson’s wedding in Almaty (at the Hotel Royal Tulip, an excellent hotel name). According to TMZ, Yeezus got paid $3 million for the performance. Pres. Nazarbayev is reportedly “worth billions” (mostly from plundered oil reserves, I would assume). The problem? Pres. Nazarbayev is on the Human Rights Watch’s list of dictators who mistreat, abuse, detain and kill their own people.
