Follow up

I feel that I should follow up on my last post and some of the comments that were left. I am still listening to country music, but I think that one of the reasons for my current state of flipping is that they haven't had a lot of new stuff come out lately and I am kind of tired of listening to the same songs over and over again.

Now, my sister mentioned that she loves that song Just Dance by Lady Gaga. I know the song she is talking about and it is kind of catchy. However, Lindsey and I saw her perform it in person when she opened for New Kids on the Block back in October and let me tell you, it could have ruined the whole song for me. That was the only song she sang that was really entertaining, honestly, but that is not the reason for our dislike of her. I can't think of any other way to say this but, she is a freak. I know that's not very nice, but let me explain. First of all, Natasha Bedingfield was the first opening act, and we really enjoyed her. I did not realize I knew and liked so many of her songs. When she finished, she informed us the the New Kids would be out in a few minutes. So, that kind of tainted our reaction anyway. When Lady Gaga came out, we were all standing up and screaming thinking it would be the New Kids. So, she comes out in this white shiny outfit that makes me think of a wedding dress right out of the Jetsons. It is a corset-type top and a short shiny tutu-like skirt. She had on extremely tall high-heeled white boots. She was flanked by several male dancers wearing very Jetson-esque outfits. She danced kind of weird during her first song. At one point in time, she began crawling around on the stage and we had a great view of her underwear. Seriously, she was getting weird and half of the crowd had already sat down. I think my mouth was hanging open by this point. The next thing I know, her dancers yanked her skirt off and she was dancing around in that horrible corset and her underwear. It was weird. I mean, who opens for a group who will have a mostly 30-something female audience and dresses like that? Anyway, freaky in every way. By the time she was done, the only people still standing and cheering were obviously drunk. If it hadn't been for them, I am sure if she had stopped singing, you could have heard crickets chirping. So, anyway, that is the explanation about the comments on Lady Gaga. I like that Just Dance song, but it does bring back those memories of her strange performance. Obviously the song and Wendy's comment bring the same type of memories back for Lindsey as well. Our memories will forever be burned with the disgusting images of her prancing around on stage mostly undressed with the weirdly-dressed dancers.

Yeah, that does sound weird. Now you can't shake that mental picture.

Yikes....sounds like she should stick to singing songs and not performing them. I am glad I didn't see the performance because it may have ruined it for me and I do really like the song. I think I am just glad that I haven't seen her in her undies gyrating around on stage. You did give a very entertaining dialogue about the performance though ;)
