Rufus Wainwright and Sean Lennon occupy Wall Street

Rufus Wainwright and Sean Lennon joined the likes of Jeff Mangum and Talib Kweli in lending their voices to the Occupy Wall Street movement this week. The two famous offspring performed an acoustic version of Madonna’s “Material Girl,” accompanied by several guitars and an accordion player (which makes this even more awesome). Perhaps Lennon was inspired by his mother, Yoko Ono, who tweeted in support of Occupy Wall Street earlier this month: “I love #OccupyWallStreet As John said, ‘One hero cannot do it. Each one of us has to be heroes.’ And you are. Thank you. love yoko.”
