Cuba, The Sequel??

Someone please school me on what has crawled up Hugo Chavez's ass and died? Everything I've read about him paints the Venezuelan prez as a Castro wannabe.

His latest antics include allegedly shutting down an Alejandro Sanz concert in Venezuela. Sanz recently spoke out about Chavez's attempt to block a recall referendum against his presidency, and is now, apparently, paying the price.

BUT- Chavez had better watch out! Sanz has some big star power supporting him. A petition, submitted to the Venezuelan government by Sanz's publicist has been signed by Shakira (who collaborated with Sanz on a few tunes), Penelope Cruz, Ricky Martin, Jennifer Lopez, and even British hottie David Beckham!
I wonder if supermodel/phone-thrower Naomi Campbell, who's been recently tied to Chavez romantically (BLECH!!), has been asked to sign the petition??

AND...you didn't hear this from me, but that pic of Hugo with Fidel looks Photoshopped...I'm just sayin'...

*smooches...hoping this isn't the beginning of catastrophe in Caracas*
how long has this dude been in power? dammit! now I have to go and research this mo-fo...
