Well I thought I would try something different. This week has been great for both me and pop culture. So many things have happened this week that it’s necessary to do a week in review article.
First off, Sunday was the Billboard Music Awards here in Las Vegas, and I was down there at the white carpet taking pictures. I have to say even though I wish I could have been there inside the MGM Grande Arena to watch the show, seeing some the best performances on television was the next best thing.
On Monday, Lady Gaga’s second album was released. You can read my review here. Also released on Monday was Glee, The Music Vol. 6 with the original songs from the season finale, “Pretending” and “Light Up The World”.
On Wednesday, Oprah Winfrey ended her 25 year run of The Oprah Winfrey Show. Mind you I am not a big fan of Oprah. I do not dislike her but I was never really into her show. Needless to say that she has had a huge impact on pop culture. Jimmy Kimmel did a hilarious take on her farewell to her fans.
Finally today after two weeks in a coma, Jeff Conaway best known for both his role as Kenickie in “Grease” and from the television “Taxi” died today. Conaway, who was 60, was put into a medically induced coma after a case of pneumonia and too many prescribed drugs. He was taken off of life support yesterday.
