Brad Pitt: Mayor Of New Orleans?

Brad Pitt: Mayor Of New Orleans?

Several citizens have banded together to get Brad Pitt elected mayor of New Orleans since the actor’s Make It Right foundation has provided green and affordable housing for displaced residents in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

Brad was asked if he would serve as Mayor of New Orleans and jokingly told the Today Show on Thursday morning, “Yeah, yeah. I’m running on the gay marriage, no religion, legalization and taxation of marijuana platform.”

When pressed some more about running, he said tersely, “I don’t have a chance. It’s not what I do best.”

WOULD YOU VOTE for Brad Pitt as Mayor of NOLA?

Doesn’t it get numbing or tiresome for some here who aren’t fans, banging their heads against the wall over and over? Nothing’s changed, some are still going on, and oooon, and on, about “when Brad and Angie break up”, almost five years on, when they’re stronger than ever in their relationship and more in love than ever. When is that? When are they breaking up? I wonder about some people’s warped perceptions about anything and everything Brad or Angelina do or say. It’s beyond me. Maybe I’ve been away from here too long and my perspective is different but Brad was KIDDING on Extra when he said he never used the word “soulmate”. It doesn’t matter what Brad and Angelina do or say, some will still be screaming “BREAK UP!” on a blog because they have nothing better to do. All the while Brad and Angie are happily living their lives with their family. It was obvious to me that Brad was joking about never having called Angie his soulmate. And I don’t swoon about celebrities but her saying “awww…well he’s mine, it is what it is” when she was asked what she thought about Brad calling her his soulmate, was so romantic. Neither Brad nor Angie is going anywhere anytime soon.

Some people just like to fight and say mean things. If you are on the thread you can donate to MIR if you do not have anything to do.

Fans at jjb speculate Brad is growing beard for the role in The Lost City of Z.

An upcoming film based on the 2009 David Grann’s book The Lost City Of Z: ATale Of Deadly Obsession In The Amazon. Pitt stars in the film and is scheduled to produce it as well. The story is about an explorer’s search for a British Colonel who disappeared trying to find a legendary City of Z during the 1920s.

In 1925 the legendary British explorer Percy Harrison Fawcett (Brad Pitt) ventured into the Amazon determined to make one of the most important discoveries in history. Colonel Percy Fawcett spent most of his non-military career mapping previously unknown regions. He was searching for an ancient civilization, which he had named, the City of Z.

Colonel Fawcett disappered with his son in the Amazon in 1925. For decades, explorers and scientists have tried to find evidence of his party and the Lost City of Z. Perhaps as many as 100 people perished or disappeared searching for Fawcett over the years.

David Grann made his own journey into the Amazon, revealing new evidence about how Fawcett died and showing that Z may have really existed right under his feet. The book was chosen by Brad Pitt’s Plan B production company and Paramount Pictures

Show us what percentage of the contributions actually go to help the people get homes. How much is eat up at the administrative level?
How many of these people have come out of public housing and can’t even think about a home loan?

The troll just sees your post as a sweet term of endearment, i’m afraid. LOL. You must understand that her mother was so busy turning tricks that the biish grew up thinking that her mother’s johns abuse of her is real love. I’ve seen sooooooo many examples of the result of child abuse and molestation and this poor troll is a classic case. She is merely acting out. Just give the troll your condolences and lets continue basking in the afterglow of Brad and Angie’s excellent example of When A Man Loves A Woman.

I don’t believe that he would meet the residency requirement.

of course i am aware of that, it’s build for the flood type houses.

It does make sense Brad will do The Lost City of Z before Moneyball. I don’t see the script of Moneyball will be finished anytime soon.

Brad Pitt Leaves New Orleans In Pits

Today, New Orleans resident Brad Pitt crushed the dreams of many voters by announcing he will not run for Mayor of the city in the 2010 election. When questioned about the issue on the “Today” show this morning, Pitt said “I don’t have a chance.” Of course, he is right for he has not lived in New Orleans for at least five years, which, according to the city charter, is a requirement for all mayoral candidates.

Sadly, our visions of Angelina Jolie as First Lady of New Orleans have now been dashed. The operators of the thriving Pitt for Mayor T-shirt business will now have to regroup and start hawking Governor Pitt merchandise.

Since they moved here in 2007, Pitt and his partner Jolie have made quite an impact on New Orleans. He started the Make It Right Foundation to rebuild homes in the destroyed Lower Ninth Ward. So far, 15 homes have been built and many others are being constructed. Pitt had the vision for the organization and has raised money from his Hollywood friends and the business community. He did not wait for government to intervene and provide assistance; he raised it in the private sector.

Pitt promised to complete his goal of building 150 homes by 2010. He said, “I want to see this through. It means something to me…. I get antsy when I can’t get down here.” So, Pitt is a man of his word, which is very refreshing quality for one of the biggest celebrities in the world. He stands in stark contrast to many of the other Hollywood elite who are constantly embarrassing themselves.

Pitt has displayed a genuine love for New Orleans and has a sincere compassion for the people who lost everything in Katrina. Even though he will not be a mayoral candidate, he can continue to make a real difference in the Crescent City.

Seriously, I’ve seen delusional people before but the ones that come here and post this is beyond understanding.
I honestly can’t get it. I don’t expect people to be smart, some just aren’t, nothing they can do but this delusional? How come can someone stop whatever he/she is doing, come to a website, make up some story or distorts some lines? I don’t what is the worse scenario 1) said person is definitely sick and/or unhappy and truly believe what she/he says or 2) he/she is aware that what he/she is saying is not true but decides, purposefully, to be delusional and become a joke to someone else.
I like Angie, Brad, Ashton and a few more of celebrities, I come here, check their news, get happy for their accomplishments and sad for their losses but you know, five minutes later I forgot said happiness and sadness because I have a life, a house, a family, a husband so I have other things to be on my head for the rest of the day.
I think everyone that is reasonable and smart should 100% ignore these people, answering back is just stupid and low ourselves to their level. Surely there are this sort of people in all fanbases but it is sad and depressing. I used to ignore the comments and that’s what I’ll do from now on. There is no space to a healthy, joyful discussion among fans here (not a problem on JJ, it is everywhere).
my last comment for those: GET A LIFE…

I have to say it never changes.. I don’t understand why the people who say they don’t like Brad, Angie or both keep such close track of every word they say..

Angie said ” I know who he is every minute and everyday”.

These people share a daily life that we do not see.. A few minutes on the red carpet and a few interviews is not their life..

My favorite part of the People mag article from the scans I have seen..
Is the description of the family’s garage.. the toys and stuff.. That to me is the best example of them as a family.. kids bikes, toys, stuff animals all the bench marks of a family with kids… just living like everyone else.

I am sure for Brad it is a bit scary to have everything in the world you wanted. The fear of losing itr can be a bit overwhelming.. he had two really serious relationships; engagement and marriage that he thought were going to last end.. Angie had two marriages end… Now they found each other and as Brad has said.. put down roots.. he is a father and he has a woman that shares his dreams and passions.. Angie has a man that shares hers.. so yeah… when you have the world in your hand.. it is a bit scary..

Brad and Angie seem to be making it work for their children and themselves.. Bravo..

And to the haters screaming Break up (5 years now).. maybe you should wait for it to happen before you start the party..

take a nap.. MY GUESS…it is going to be a while.

OOPS DON’T WANT TO BE CONFUSED WITH A NUT.. this is me..

=== forgot my blue

This message is for Sally, aka THE FUNNY THING IS………… who – apparently – never got the memo from the jenhag’s father –

Well, here it is Sally……

“Brad walked RELUCTANTLY down the aisle to marry jen – he did not want to do it!”

Let me explain this to you, the very dense one –

After Brad realized that he had done what he, IN HIS HEART – did not really want to do……..

HE WENT INTO THERAPY FOR TWO YEARS!!!!!!

When the TWO YEARS of therapy were over……..he woke up and

DIVORCED THE HAG!

The PAST IS DEAD! Bury it!!!

Ciao

Ann Curry is so lucky. She gotto interview Brad and Angie all the time. Does she has special connection with them?

MIR facts @ 08/13/2009 at 7:11 pm

@Money is tight:

The original group have to have owned a lot in the Lower 9th. They also had to contribute money they received from the state or insurance toward the cost of their home. MIR loans them the difference and they must repay this loan. They had to have at least 1/2 of the cost of their new home.

MIR has now purchased some lots in the Lower 9th from the city redevelopment revitalization and will sell these to non former Lower 9th homeowners who have funds and want to live in an MIR home.

Problem has been getting clear title to lots. Many families lived in homes for generations and did not go thru any formal probate, property was just passed down informally within the family. Also some records were impactd by Katrina, and some remediation had to be done to the soil in addition to clearing the land from the Katrina debris.

MIR is not public housing, it is not free, homeowners have to possess at least 1/2 the money for the home they choose. Some have enough to have paid outright for their new homes.

Utility bills have been as low as promised.

Duplexes will now be built as requested by people who lived in those before, and also for multi generational families.

MIR is a success.

If he says nothing, he’s criticized for not loving her enough. If he says something, he’s criticized for saying the wrong thing(s). Why do those who dislike AJ/BP constantly analyze an re-interpret their body language, their words, and actions/behavior if they don’t care about them? Because……these are the type of people who have nothing and despise those who do. The type of people who uphold the deceitful and despise the honorable. Life is perfect and people are flawed, yet, these fools buy into the fantastical and become easily disillusioned with themselves and instead of correcting these flaws, seek to point out the sins of another. I understand. It is hard to look into one’s self and address one’s problems for fear of finding a person you don’t like or one who is unlovable. MAYBE…..You should spend less time on this thread and more time learning and loving yourself. It would eliminate the hatred you feel towards people you don’t know.

Hello JP fans!

Just a suggestion….why not make the trolls really hurt by ignoring them and/or posting great JP pix, quotes, vides, articles and talk to JP fans not to the trolls. It is obvious this one spamming is the one and only idiot here who has changed it’s name again… JMHO it’s sole purpose is to get a reaction…don’t give IT/ the pathetic thing the satisfaction…. Slam the trolls in general don’t enhage one and one…like I said it’s just a suggestion…..

Here you go troll… choke on these :-)

PT–check email when you get a chance…

The Lower 9th will be the greenest place in America. I read somewhere Brad is trying to expand MIR format houses to New Jersey. The man is a visionary.

I think Brad would make a great Mayor but I wouldn’t want him to do it. He has plenty on his plate right now helping everyone around the world to attend to only New Orleans. I commend him for stepping in and building homes, other HW showoffs only stepped in to be photographed and left within a couple weeks. Brad has donated alot of money and time rebuilding and also visiting N.O.. The people who live in NO want Brad to be Mayor, so that’s a great honor to be appreciated like that. Brad has touched so many people around the world and loved by many just like Angelina. I love this couple because they have such giving hearts.
