Well, JOAN RIVERS and Season Five American Idol winner TAYLOR HICKS have stepped forward to absolutely roast Christina.
Joan said, ”How stupid can you get? Christina must have been thinking about food, that’s why she forgot the words. ’O say can you see…french fries. She’s gotten so big, she looks like she could eat Lady Gaga. Great way to get rid of competition.”
OK…so it’s true. Christina has beefed up a little. But I like a girl that has some curves. She was way too skinny back in the day. What does her weight have to do with how well she sings?
Taylor Tweeted, ”Christina Aguilera hopes ‘true spirit’ of anthem came through. What a JOKE. Practice OUR ANTHEM before using it. Just ask for a Teleprompter. They don’t have to show the prompter on TV. Or just memorize it and go slow. Or use it as a publicity stunt.”
By the way…I’d like to say a special thanks to Taylor for coming out from under the rock of obscurity to toss in his two cents.
But FERGIE…whose BLACK EYED PEAS performed the halftime show…defended Christina. In a radio interview, she said, “She’s one of the best singers of our time. You get nervous at these things. She’s human.”
I understand both points of view. As an American…and a veteran…I think we should all know the words to our national anthem. But honestly…how many people really do? Just go to any sporting event if you really want to find out.
On the other hand…she has known for months that she was going to perform on the world’s biggest stage…so it seems she would have practiced enough to know the song frontward and backward. And she’s a seasoned performer…so while nerves may have played a part…I can’t believe it was all that different than many other performances that she has given.
However, I’m sure her intentions were good…she just made a mistake. At least she didn’t make a mockery of it like Roseanne did several years ago.
So I say let it go…stop beating her up. The woman made a mistake in front of 111 million people. I think she probably feels bad enough without anyone else piling on.
BY THE WAY…this year’s Super Bowl…was the most-watched TV program OF ALL TIME. According to the early numbers, this year’s game eclipsed last year’s by almost 5 million viewers. This is the second straight year that the Super Bowl has set a new all-time ratings mark. Before last year’s game, M*A*S*H held the record for 27 years. 106 million people tuned in for the season finale in 1983.
WHILE NO ONE will ever to ask her to sing the national anthem again…the people at TiVo say the Super Bowl commercial that was watched, rewound and re-watched the most times was: the Snickers commercial featuring RICHARD LEWIS and ROSEANNE BARR.
The Best Buy ad with OZZY OSBOURNE and JUSTIN BIEBER was second.
The PepsiMax “Love Hurts” ad was the third most re-watched.
NOW THAT THE SUPER BOWL is over…we just have to ride out the rest of winter and count the days until spring flowers arrive. Whatever will we do with our time?
According to a new poll by the Associated Press and Weather Underground, 15% of Americans who’ve been stuck inside because of winter storms say that they’ve had MUCH MORE SEX than usual. Unfortunately, another 15% have had the opposite reaction…either the weather has made them feel un-sexual or it’s just too cold to take their pants off, because they’ve had LESS sex during the winter. The rest of the people surveyed said the weather hasn’t had any impact on their sex lives.
HERE’S A NICE NEW passive-aggressive excuse to break up with someone: ”I’m sorry, our birth orders just aren’t compatible.” How can someone even respond to that?
There’s a new book out called Birth Order: What Your Position In the Family Really Tells You About Your Character. It lays out the most compatible people for you to date, based on their birth order. Take a look…
First-born with last-born works. Oldest siblings are more likely to want to take care of people, and youngest siblings want to be cared for.
Only child with youngest child works. eople who are the youngest in their family inspire creativity and freedom in people who didn’t have any siblings.
Two last-borns work. They might be too immature together, but they can also bring out the best in each other.
A middle child is compatible with anyone. Middle children tend to be able to adapt to anyone. They can calm down an overbearing first-born, get along well with another middle child, support someone who was the youngest, or let an only child take charge.
Two first-borns DON’T work. here’s too big a risk for conflict, since first-borns are usually competitive and want to be in charge.
I find this one interesting since both Charmen and I are first born…and we both definately like being in charge! Hmmm…maybe this explains some of those stupid arguments we will occasionally have.
First-born and only child DOESN’T work. Both are used to being in charge and getting their way.
Two only children DON’T work. It’s just too much of both people thinking of themselves.
