As anticipated, Lady Gaga’s second album, Born This Way, was released today and Gaga’s sophomore effort was worth the wait. Two different versions of Born This Way, the standard version and two-disc special edition. The album is great but take my advice: buy the special edition! The special edition has three extra songs on the first disc and five remixes on the second disc just for a couple of dollars more.
Don’t get wrong, I love watching American Idol, but there have been one too many times where the wrong person has won. First there was the Season 8 finale when Kris Allen won over Adam Lambert. Then in Season 9 Lee DeWyze won over Crystal Bowersox. Now this season, the best performer, James Durbin was voted off just this evening when it should have been clear that Scotty McCreery was the one to be eliminated. I admit, I am not a big fan of country music but even so, Scotty is not that talented. When Scotty performed his second song last night, I thought that was the most corny performance I have ever seen especially with those crazy eyes that he was making. The only consolidation that I have is that Scotty will fade into country music obscurity while Haley Rhinehart and James Durbin have successful careers.
Alright I thought I would put my two cents in on the goings on in pop culture this week:
Adam Lambert- This week’s Rolling Stone cover story was about American Idol runner-up, Adam Lambert and his confirmation what we all knew, he is gay. The best part of the interview was that Adam revealed that he had a crush on Kris Allen. When told about Adam’s crush, Kris Allen told this to People Magazine, “I’m flattered. And think it’s hilarious.” Continue reading “This Week in Pop Culture”
I am totally pissed!!! No disrespect to Kris Allen when I say this because he is a good singer, but he should not have won. Adam Lambert was light years ahead of Kris when it came to singing. The thing that really pisses me off was that I bet you the reason Adam didn’t win was because he’s allegedly gay. The reason I say allegedly is because Adam has neither confirmed nor denied he’s gay. The “Christians” that watch American Idol cannot stand the fact that a gay guy would have been the best singer, but the truth of the matter is it should not matter about Adam’s sexuality. He is by far the better singer. The joke is going to be on those “Christians” because Adam is going to be more famous than Kris.
