So with the fascination of watching a train wreck live, I watched this show. Fortunately, I could Tivo it so I could fast forward…but OMFG the garbage!. This is like when the terms ‘moral’ and ‘ethics’ were co-opted by raving lunatics. American Music? stupid. The best act was a 53 year old Scottish woman. Annie Lennox is great, and I have to ask..well…how many of the so-called artists on stage will have a career when they are 53? Check out these ‘totally awesome’, freakin’, so-called AMERICAN MUSIC performers:
Christina Aguilara – blech…
Natasha Bedingfield – pretty crap
Beyonce – setting women back to the stone age
Mariah Carey – undeniable good pipes, but what garbage tunes
Coldplay – mildly interesting since they had Brian Eno produce their last album
Miley Cyrus – Taco Bell
The Fray – huh?
Jonas Brothers – Mouseketeers that have studied Mick Jagger and Elvis Costello
Alicia Keys – I can’t blame her for making money, she will be able to play real music later in her career since she is an actual musician. Kind of a modern day George Benson
Leona Lewis – huh?
Sarah Mclachlan – well, at least she has a nice voice to my ears
Ne-Yo – new yo? the latest short lived…
New Kids On the Block – you’ve got to be kidding me
Pink – mildly interesting as a rocker
Pussycat Dolls – who would have thought that soft porn still had a market, this really made me puke
Rihanna – like a bizarro world version of Prince? so wrong…
Taylor Swift – how many of these are there????
Kanye West – earned my respect for having Jon Brion produce his second album…but he still sucks
And that is who represents ‘Amercian Music’ in 2008???? I won’t even wast the typing time for the so-called winners..though I do love the fact that Alvin and the Chipmunks are the first listed. Good grief. It is as if the so called music industry is nothing but American Idol participants…er…wait, I think that is true. I am going back in my cave now…
