Random Monday – 3rd Rate Music Show Edition

In CategoryRandom Monday


We watched part of the Billboard Music Awards last night, due primarily to a lack of interest in anything else. I figured the BM Awards was a D-List show when Kanye West didn’t jump on stage and have a hissy fit when Taylor Swift won everything.

Here are some things I discovered:

• Madonna still thinks people want to see her half-naked. Mistakenly. Lady, you are 54 years old. Put on some clothes.

• Jim’s Coolness Factor would increase exponentially if he changed his name to PitBull. He’s not going for it. Lame.

• These shows always make me feel like I am too old for music. Judging by Miley Cyrus’ outfit last night, not only do I not understand music, I don’t understand clothes.


• Speaking of clothes, it looks like high-cut leotards and thigh-high boots are the new It Look. Or maybe it’s not new. Beyonce has been wearing leotards for years. Way to be original, Jennifer Lopez.

I’m not sold on the red puffy Big Bird sleeves. Yet.

• Justin Bieber gets more insufferable with each passing day. Sorry Beliebers. Can someone tell me what is going on with his pants?


I know he’s just a kid, but does he not understand how pants work? Don’t inseams generally go higher than one’s knee? He pretty though.

• One of those girls from Destiny’s Child who is not Beyonce told me that if I don’t know from Electronic Dance Music, I should get out more. Then they played some truly unbearable, almost seizure-inducing crap that made me want to never, ever, ever go anywhere that is happening.

• Is is just me, or do musicians dress like science fiction characters?

erykah badu
white bathrobe? check.
ginormous golden rope epaulets? check.
huge gold cuffs from another galaxy? check.

• Nicki Minaj should be ashamed of herself.

    And you wonder why I listen to classical music. Occasionally music from the 80’s, the greatest music decade ever. In fact, some A-ha song came on the radio while I was driving my daughter to the library. You know, the one from Pretty in Pink? I love that song. I was singing it for her to prove that I did know something of pop music. She ran from the car. I am not sure what was more upsetting for her, my singing or the song. Oh, well.

    I am so glad that I watched The Notebook with my mother last night instead of Music Awards. It sounds like they are all cra-cra.

    Wow. That’s so bad it aspires to be Luc Besson sci-fi fashion.

    You soooo need to go check the weirdness that is the Eurovision Song Contesthttp://www.eurovision.tv/ It is only to be watched with the accompanying Twitter feed (in Oz it’s broadcast by SBS – #sbseurovision). Hysterical stuff. Those Europeans obviously have a totally different idea of musical talent and good taste than the rest of the world!
