Yo go, Yoko!!

Yoko Ono has been named the first Global Autism Ambassador by the Autism Speaks organization!!

The wife of the late John Lennon was given the title for creating a piece of art called Promise last year, as a dedication to World Autism Day, which is April 2nd.

While accepting the honor, she said:

"As an artist the concept of distance means nothing to me, you can bring the whole world together with a song, a painting or a single word and that is what I have tried to achieve with Promise and I hope it has been able to make a difference."

We're sure it did! What a lovely gesture!

Congratulations, bb!

    Re: GetIntoTheGroove – I don't like her either, but, I don't see your point.
    1.Paganism: Earth-based relegion that pre-dates Christianity, which in turn
    pre-dates the concept of the Christian devil, rendering the Pagan "religion"
    unable to worship Satan. There is no need to worship a deity in Paganism
    which does not exist in their dogma.
    2.Wicca: see #1
    3. Satanism: NOT devil worship. They have a completely differant theology. I
    you're thinking of actual "Devil Worship" which, yes, is very bad.
    4. Murder: I have no clue. I have no idea how that connects to her, though it
    doesn't take a huge leap in logic there.
    5. If Lennon did not, in some part, agree with her theologies, why did
    he leave his wife and child for her?



  12. 12

    I didn't realize yoko was homeless!



  13. 13

    fuck that fraud and anyone who buys into her "art".



  14. 14

    luv her! Don Vuitton ! w w w. d o n v u i t t o n . c o m



  15. 15

    Thank goodness she didn't sing a song for autism, everyone would cover their ears.

    Re: FaeRae – Its truly something I cant talk about. its ashame u cant private message ppl on these forums. Its just hypocritical of her on the pagan thing is all and murder…wow did u not know? :( She had an agenda the whole time. She works for the CIA. Blv it or not it does not matter to me it matter to a man who got killed for pushing PEACE and he got killed for it. And yoko that day was smiling I was there in NY when it happened. I been around the music shit for too long. I seen to many good ppl die famous and not yet famous. Its pretty sick. :/ She represents thing lennon actually didnt. Listen to Mind games and several other songs. He was the best artist with his words its all there. Plus Yoko has lots of dirt on her and I bet its even googable I have not searched there so idk I dont wanna know. Its saddddd his first wife was so nice and so is jullian ive met him and interviewed him in UK about yoko its can be found online the one where he talks about her!

    Hey, that's really great, good job. There is still, however, the unpleasant matter of being the one who broke up the Beatles. Anything to say about that, bitch?

    Re: GetIntoTheGrooveRe: FaeRae – She has always struck me as a very controlling cold-hearted woman. Cynthia was apparently sweet as was May Pang, but this woman was one selfish bitch. There's just too much info to think anything different. Julian Lennon hates her, as do most of the Beatles. But there is no way she could have had that kind of control over John Lennon if he wasn't so weak. And he was. He let her run his life. Her and the drugs. I've met crafty gold diggers just like this woman….so crafty and opportunisitc…manipulative…sneaky. Ugh.

    Ohhh how nice a self professed witch is the face of a humanitarian organization, that doesn't surprise me, because the most evil,vile individuals always mask their evil by portraying themselves as the complete opposite or an unattainable level of it., IE : Jesse Sadomasochistic James is really married to cherry pie wholesome Sandra Bullock?no way!

    Perez, You know NOTHING about autism. Until you do please don't promote dumb ass shit like this. Thanks.



  22. 22

    Re: Frau Bullock - Nazi fucker – Did you know she has a "Greatest Hits" album? How in the hell did that happen. My boyfriend and I found it in a Montreal shop and laughed so hard we were almost kicked out. I mean, why doesn't anyone who likes her just put in a CD of distress calls from whales?? It's a pretty good likeness!



  23. 23

    well she probably is an expert in autism. I mean, she appears to have it.



  24. 24

    It's wonderful that she's helping people like herself.



  25. 25

    Can't she take some of those royalty checks from the Beatles and buy a bra?



  26. 26

    yoko ono….ehh not sure how i feel about her. as far as im concerned, she manipulated john lennon and ruined the beatles. BUT the beatles were suffering before she meddled herself in there. anyway, dont rip on john, Rest In Peace



  27. 27

    Nope….cannot agree with you on this. Would have preferred someone with first hand knowledge of an Autistic child..like Jenny McCarthy, etc…not this woman who would go to an opening of an envelope. Donating art is one thing to help raise funds, but not a spokesperson. Shame on you Autism Speaks!!! SHAME!!!!



  28. 28

    Oh, and one more thing….did anyone here SEE the 'art'? Its a huge puzzle of blue sky with clouds and a few puzzle peices missing. Oh my lord….

    Re: Failkips – Please. That's insulting to those who DO live with Autism.

    Lovely gesture my ass, you Parasite. NO ONE can be so stupid … not even you, Perez. Yoko Ono is a manipulative, heartless, ruthless, mind-controlling freak who has no talent of her own. She can't sing … her "art" is crap … and her every "gesture" is calculated. If not for her presence in John Lennon's life, he would still be around today. I'm not a Beatles fan; I have no use for Paul McCartney (trite) or Ringo Starr (useless). John Lennon was an extremely gifted song writer, and his solo stuff was, on the whole, brilliant (Harrison was in his league, just quieter and under-rated). To grant Ono the illusion of humanity is very troubling because she doesn't deserve it. It's too bad Lennon didn't have more back-bone; ridding himself of the Ono serpent might have saved him.



  31. 31

    uhh could we have captured her in a better outfit. She doesn't look like the embassador of anything in this picture.



  32. 32

    Congratulations, but what is the art, "Promise"?



  33. 33

    Nice thing to do,but I always hated this woman. She's a total bitch,ugly and plays off of John's fame. Ever hear her "sing"? I'd rather rip my eardrums out.



  34. 34

    i don't want this thing representing me…



  35. 35

    I didn't know she had autism. That explains her music.



  36. 36

    Fuck her



  37. 37

    Re: Frau Bullock - Nazi fucker – Spot on. Oh, and lets not forget whe the beatles were talking about a new album, Yoko called Heathrow Airport and told them that the McCartney's were carrying pot, therefore getting them arrested. Yeah, she's a WONDERFUL human being! She got what she wanted and was not going to let anything stop her. Including witholding Julian's monetary share of John's will. Classy. Actually, classy was Julian not pursuing the matter very far. I guess he decided the money was less important than being too near that toxic bitch for too long. Now, which one of her sons sound like their dad, hhhmmm? I'm not even going to get (much) into Sean Lennon's re-do of his father's "Give Peace a Chance" at the start of the second Gulf War. Sorry Seanny, you don't have your father's talent and as much as you may have been hoping, you were never going to start another Woodstock. And now that you're no longer a minor, don't you think the right thing to do would be to at lease SHARE part of Julian's money with him? Oh, wait, right, your mother is Yoko Ono. Please tell her for us that she can stop wearing the "Lennon" glasses now. We ALL know who she is.
