Remember that story about top hip-hop designers partnering with Mickey D's to make uniforms that will paper over the mind-numbing dronelike nature of employees' jobs? Oddly, the designers list included Russell Simmons, who now denies having anything to do with the project: "Russell Simmons, the man who made hip hop hot, angrily denies rumours that he is sewing new uniforms for McDonald's. 'Not only is it not true, I am not in talks with them, I'm a vegan! It goes against my principles,' he said at an in-store appearance in Vancouver." Good to see he's not the mercenary sellout the previous article(s) had implictly portrayed. Now, howzabout a correction in all the papers in which that piece ran?
