Guess we’re on a controversial highway to hell here this afternoon, guys. Remember how I said that Nicki Minaj did this weird Catholic-possession-themed performance later on in the evening last night? She did. And here it is in full effect.
What I want to know, though, is why people actually like this girl. Rather, her performances and her music. She could be a delightful lady, I don’t know. I don’t really care. The only thing that I can focus on is the weird faces, the painful performances, and the odd voices. I just don’t get it, and maybe that makes me old or stupid or narrow-minded, and that’s completely alright with me.
I mean honestly, you had Minaj’s performance last night, which, in my opinion, dragged on far, far too long than it should have (and how it ended? What the hell.), but then you have a fabulous duo like The Civil Wars, who get, what, an entire thirty seconds of air time and they do stuff like this:
And, you know, like this?:
Obviously, their original stuff is way good, too, but that’s aside from the point. If you’re not Nicki Minaj or Katy Perry or Rihanna – generally speaking – then you’re just a tiny blip on the radar of musical entertainment, but hey. To each his own, I guess; isn’t that what it’s all about?
