Popular songstress Katy Perry has released a new emotional single to usher in the Summer Olympics taking place in Brazil. The song is already having a huge surge on YouTube and will no doubt be one of the biggest hits in the summer charts. As Perry strikes gold with another hit, the question remains to be answered – will Rio be able to get it together in time for the Olympics?
Brazil has been plagued with not only the Zika Virus but a vaccine resistant bacteria in the water which has been reported to burn the face and make the suffer feel like their skin is being invaded by foreign creatures. To add more to the tale of woe is that human remains (body parts) have washed up on the shore of Rio’s beaches. Part of the police force has been protesting that they haven’t been paid and that Brazil isn’t safe. These officers have been campaigning at the airport in view of the arriving athletes, media and tourists Adding to that, robberies are high and some athletes have already been robbed at gun point.
Can all these news leaks be make believe? Can all the construction be done in time safely? Does the local government have enough security to make the Summer Olympics safe? Or is this all foreshadowing a big catastrophe with global repercussions? The infrastructure of Brazil is shaky and there has also been gentrification of the poor with the added insult of a huge fence separating them from the Olympic visitors. A little Apartheid is going on in Rio while athletes from richer countries try to win Gold.
Should the Rio Olympics be canceled before it starts? Some – Many say YES!
