>The Grammy Awards were last night and I honestly had no idea who half the people were that marched down the red carpet. My sister and I played, “Who’s that?” for most of the night. Partially it’s because I no longer listen to FM radio. Partially it’s because they don’t show videos on MTV anymore. Partially it’s because I’m old and don’t have a teenager in my house. Although, even when I was a teenager, I never watched the Grammys. Half of the acts nominated weren’t of interest to me. While I did enjoy pop music, my tastes were pretty varied…with the exception of country music. Nowadays, I’m not so anti-country music, but neither do I actually own much of it.
My only question was…did Lady Gaga purposefully rip off Madonna’s Express Yourself or was that an accident? I appreciate her theatricality, but am not really that into her music. Maybe one day I’ll enjoy it when everyone else has leapt off the bandwagon. I have a tendency to act like that… contrarian. If everyone likes whatever is popular, I instantly don’t like it because there must be something wrong with it to be so popular. Maybe it’s just left over teenage rebellion that I need to grow up past.
