For Your Entertainment Only

So I was going to talk about my weekend and the conundrum created from posting a new profile picture (dear gawd)… or the ridiculousness that is the Trans-Siberian Orchestra (a stuck in the 70-80’s Christian Rock Opera hair band… SHOOT.ME.NOW.)… rather, I’m stepping up on my soap box…
Instead I want to rant about the 2009 AMAs (American Music Awards).
Not because it’s extremely boring or predictable.
Because the above is TRUE. YAWN.
But because of the so-called controversy that a particular overrated rock-opera wannabe called Adam Lambert (of the A.I. fame) created with his so-called ‘raunchy-too-hot-for-TV’ performance.
Listen up you conservative chastity-belt-wearing prudes…
The guy kisses another guy on TV.
He simulates fellatio by grinding a guys face into his crotch.
He drags a chick by the leg across the floor.
Who cares?? Seriously!
Is this too controversial for your eyes?? Holy.
I bet the walls in your house are all beige.
I wished people would stop being hypocrites about this shit.
We listen and let our children listen to music about murder, violence, sexual promiscuity, drugs, abuse, with homophobic lyrical content.
We play and let our children play video games that are all about eluding authority, murders, killing sprees, robberies, raping women/children, war, crimes, sex etc…
No one thinks twice about that or the ramifications of over-exposure to THAT sort of content.
We watch and let our children watch prime time television where scantily clad teenagers flaunt their stuff and sexuality moreso than some porns I’ve seen (sorry dad – yes I’ve watched AND enjoyed porns – no need to be shocked – and I still love ya!!). The content of such TV shows, airing at the same time as the AMAs, are filled with violence, controversial subjects that, again, parents and children alike think nothing less about watching.
Madonna masturbates on stage.
Prince simulated sex on stage.
Lil Kim is usually naked or practically naked on stage.
Brittney, Janet, Christina, MJ, Eminem, David Bowie, hell Aerosmith and countless hair band rockers… I mean seriously… the list goes on and on…
Yet – we let our kids idolize them and go to their concerts. Think nothing about it.
Far less of a crime than letting them indulge in the violence that IS video games and used as the perpetual babysitter.
So seriously – shut the fuck up with the outrage! Hypocrite!
This is NOTHING compared to what other stuff we allow on our airwaves that nobody says shit about.
And look – to play it ‘safe’ ABC gave you a warning … in fact several warnings about Lambert’s so-called outrageous musical display. Don’t bitch if you’ve been warned and you watched nonetheless. Just goes to show that 1) you don’t listen, 2) you’re a hypocrite or 3) both.
And this so-called ‘outrageous’ performance… LOL – flashy at best.
So what – a guy kissed another guy. A girl kissed another girl. Some guy thrust his crotch in a persons face. Homophobe!
Lock the doors. Elvis isn’t dead afterall!!!
Surely … such a performance will corrupt the youth of the world!!!
Honey – if you’ve never experienced anything other than missionary and think that’s as risqué you’ll ever get… then you shouldn’t be watching TV. PERIOD.
Truly … the 2009 AMAs were boring at best. And if this is the performance that creamed your panties and tied them up in a bunch … what a boring life you must lead. Go back under that rock you live under. I’m bored with you already.
Oh let him thank you for the increased album sales… you did the man justice.
*Steps off soapbox*
Oh one more thing… if you just so happen to be one of those people I describe above… don’t look at the video below. You haven’t gotten out of the dark ages and your own sexuality frightens you. I can’t help you. But you need help.
