Neo-Pagan Modern Thoughts On Society

Its fairly common knowledge that the Grammys has become one of those corrupt entities that American deal with each and every year. Its kind of like the Oscars, only there is slightly more crack (literally) involved and a far larger population of badly dressed stars. But BORING, it has rarely been. And then came 2011. Time to take a nap.

Image of the Grammys Award.Its fairly common knowledge that the Grammys has become one of those corrupt entities that American deal with each and every year. Its kind of like the Oscars, only there is slightly more crack (literally) involved and a far larger population of badly dressed stars. But BORING, it has rarely been. And then came 2011. Time to take a nap.

There were three highlights to the night, probably worth the price of the ticket: Lady Gaga’s new song performance and arriving in a palanquin egg, Mick Jagger able to perform (at all) and move like a youngerster (even with the amount of chemicals in HIS blood), and finally Barbara Streisand performing live and looking fabulous to all.

The awards themselves were a giant joke. Obviously you have to know WHO to sleep with to get a Grammy, because they no longer represent talent. Lady Antebellum winning several awards for a “one hit wonder”- out of date year old song (I thought we were over the one hit wonder thing in the 70s?) was representational of how bad this event came off.

And the performances: oh, my god, pass my iPad so I can read a book while watching. You couldn’t have come up with worse acoustics, costumes and complete performances if you were putting together a giant spoof of the Grammys. It made fun of itself. Nearly every performer’s voice was drowned out by the horrible acoustics.

Will someone please pass the word that baggy pants showing rear cleavage and rap is SOOOO OVER! Its day has come awhile back and has departed an even longer while back. More talents has been exhibited in the pre-auditions of this season’s American Idol sadly.
