If you haven’t watched either the Netflix or Hulu documentary on the epic fail that was the “Fyre Festival,” then stop what you are doing right now and watch them — preferably the Netflix documentary first, followed by the Hulu one (if you would like my recommendation).
But if you don’t have time for that, I will give you a condensed version.
Rapper Ja Rule was apart of the failed Fyre Festival, a “luxurious” event that reeled in rich and famous Millenials as well as Instagram influencers across the world.
Netflix and Hulu then dropped the documentaries on the festival, an event that was supposed to take place in the Bahamas in 2017.
And since that date, people have not stopped talking about it.
Caught up? Perfect.
So for all my Fyre Festival fans, you will be shocked to hear that Ja Rule himself, the zany co-founder of the event, was recently spotted at LAX airport.
Naturally, folks came up to him and started asking him questions.
In footage captured by TMZ, Ja Rule is stopped and asked the following question:
“Why wouldn’t you try to do Fyre Festival again? Just because the publicity, like it’s almost the most famous festival, say more famous than Coachella because everyone hears about it.”
Ja Rule then said: “It is the most iconic festival that ever was so I have plans to create the iconic music festival, but you didn’t hear it from me.”
But Ja Rule, we JUST heard it from YOU!
I don’t know what to believe anymore.
When asked about whether he had viewed either documentaries, Ja Rule shared:
“They’re popular, maybe one day. I lived it man, I ain’t got to watch it. It’s not funny to me man, it’s heartbreaking to me. It was something that I really, really wanted to be special and amazing and it just didn’t turn out that way.”
“But you know, in the midst of chaos there opportunity and so, I’m working on a lot of new things.”
Chaos is putting it lightly, but if you are like me — I am itching to find out what exactly those new things are.
Ja Rule helped construct the festival with Billy McFarland, CEO of Fyre Media Inc. who has since been jailed for six years on fraud charges and was ordered to pay $26 million.
And while that is a ridiculous amount of money, it seems appropriate given the amount of money McFarland scammed many people out of.
Attendees were promised yacht parties, amazing food and a killer music line up.
It was reported that Kendall Jenner was paid $250,000 for the post to her 100 million Instagram followers, announcing the event.
But Jenner was not the only one paid to post to her Instagram.
Bella Hadid, Emily Ratajkowski and Hailey Baldwin were also using #fyrefestival on their accounts to help promote the 2017 festival.
Fyre festival was supposed to take place on an island in the Bahamas’ once owned by Pablo Escobar.
Tickets for the festival were available for up to $75,000 and when attendees finally made it to the island, they were met with no place to sleep, little to no food, no music, no water and bad weather.
And Ja Rule wants to bring it back?! I can’t wait to watch the next documentary on it…
