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.
