The Emmys

I just have a few things to say.

#1: I thought Christina Aguilera's duet with Tony Bennett was a bad idea. What gall she had to sing so fucking loud and add so much improvised, hip-hoppish phrasing to the classic song, "Steppin' Out With My Baby."
Poor Tony was singing in his soft, hep-cat style, then when it was her turn to sing she belted it out like some neo-Ethel Merman. Nora Jones or Joni Mitchell would have nailed it with Tony, but this brassy ham needs to publicly apologize for trying so hard to upstage him. Even the way she moved all over like a whore while he was trying to sing just screamed, "NEVER MIND HIM--LOOK AT ME!"
She's got no class and she's too fucking brassy to be anywhere near old Tony.

#2: Instead of censoring Sally Field for calling it a "God-damned war," they should censor the men who start these God-damned wars. Besides, Hollywood hates Bush, it's their awards show, so let them say whatever the fuck they want.
If anyone objects, let them turn the channel to Fox News and listen to them smooching Bush's ass 24/7.

#3. Ryan Seacrest, you are gay enough without the black velvet renaissance costume. If I want to see gay men prancing around, I can sneak into the men's room at the Republican National Committee headquarters.

#4. It was a live show- someone should haven mentioned O.J. Simpson being in a Nevada jail without bail for seven felony counts and Condi Rice and her partner Randy Beans-Rice.

Wow, you totally nailed it on the Aguilera hamming-job. TB outclasses almost anyone, but he was obviously outclassing that tart. Let her go sing with her fellow "divas" (as if) and leave Tony alone with someone like the two you suggested. That would've been awesome!

Thanks, D-Guz.
I am kind of surprised that none of the saturated media coverage of the Emmys made mention of her slutty foghorn act.
I never paid much attention to her or her music, but she seems very fake with that hair and overdone makeup.

She is fake. She (and others like her, all those "diva" singers in pop music today) is nothing but a good voice gone wacko and a pre-packaged "diva" persona to smile for the cameras. She wouldn't know true class and talent if they sat right next to her and sang -- oh wait, that's just what happened to her onstage with Tony Bennett.

I am glad to have missed that performance. Tony Bennet is one of the three best live performances I have ever seen and I would have puked if I saw that. I swear.
