We are not shitting you.
Ok so maybe we are a bit. In the most bizarre but perhaps totally fucking awesome news we’ve heard this month, King Of Party Andrew WK has been “officially” named the Cultural Ambassador to the Middle East by the US Department Of State – or at least according to the singer’s own website.
This is actually happening.
“This is a tremendous invitation,” W.K. said in a statement on his website. “I’m very thankful to the Department of State for giving me the opportunity to visit a place I’ve never been before. And I feel very privileged and humbled by the chance to represent the United States of America and show the good people of Bahrain the power of positive partying. I can hardly wait for this adventure!”
reckons it’s all a ruse, but we’ll be interviewing Andrew WK at the Penguin encloser at London Zoo this week, so we’ll ask him about it.
No that one really is happening. Seriously.
