Grammy Run Down
By PopCultureWhore

** Justin Timberlake. Was that little close-up video camera bit at the end of “What Goes Around” a little shout-out to Britney and her dizzying angles on the atrocious “Chaotic” reality TV series?

** Beyonce’s skirt was a tad see-through. CBS did its best to shield the outline of her thighs from Middle America.

** John Mayer. I like the curly hair – I don’t like the sneakers with the suit. Ryan Seacrest was very proud of himself when they got someone to decipher the Japanese phrase John uttered on the red carpet when asked about Jessica Simpson. “She is very beautiful – and you’re the last to know” Mayer told Seacrest in Japanese. Because Seacrest would be more interested in Mayer than Jessica?

** Ludacris gives a shout-out to Oprah and Bill O’Reilly, both of whom have criticized his racy lyrics. Luda best watch his back. Queen Oprah will smote him.

** Carrie Underwood changed clothes during her performance – from a Dorothy Gale green number to a Stevie Nicks black ensemble. Oops, a stage hand just guided Carrie right through Ornette Coleman and Natalie Wood’s intro – probably because she’s going to win Best New Artist. Yep.

** Is Rascal Flatts really singing “Hotel California” at an awards show in 2007? I feel like I only hear this song when I’m stuck at toll booths on Rte. 95.

** Lionel Richie is singing “Hello”. I know this is a classic, but it always makes me laugh. And now thanks to Starburst, it makes me think of that disturbing commercial where the kid eats a replica of the girl’s head made of Starburst in reference to the clay model featured in Lionel’s video.

** That little kid performing with Chris Brown is extremely spastic. Someone’s been doing his pilates. I missed this flip:

** Christina, I love you, but please lay off the fake tanning spray. And the purple eye shadow. And the red lipstick. Thanks. Girl can sing, though.

** Why do they keep flashing to Jamie Foxx after every performance?

** Ok, back to Ludacris. He’s performing with Earth, Wind & Fire? Somebody’s getting high up in the kitchen? Poor Lisa. Whoa, Mary J. is rocking the Farrah hair.

** Is James Blunt STILL singing this song?!

** Justin’s back. His “Grammy moment” winner looks a tad awkward, but I guess she can sing? Eh. More Justin, less random girl.

** Oh God, Quentin Tarantino needs to lay off the hair gel. And what is he wearing? Ok, and he’s talking much too loud. I think he’s been sampling the back stage liquor.

** Red Hot Chili Peppers are a bit tame. Does this mean they’re going to win an award next because they’re performing? The confetti is obnoxious. Some divas in the audience are not happy it’s getting in their hair. I wonder who has to clean that up? I’m thinking about this because their performance is booooring.

** Al Gore and Queen Latifah. Yeah. Red Hot Chili Peppers get the award. I totally called that.

** I wonder what they’re going to do for the 50th annual Grammy awards? Will Britney be back in top form to give us a VMA-esque performance? A duet with Justin? A whore can dream.

** Scarlett Johansson is recording an album? Ew. I vaguely remember some song of hers from a movie that got onto the Internet?

** Natalie Maines from the Dixie Chicks is married to the guy from "Heroes"? I actually remember him (Adrian Pasdar) from that Lifetime movie "Love in Another Town", where he romanced a jilted Victoria Principal.

brandy said...

The recipe I am going to share with you today is about 350 years old! A great favourite from the Cape where the first brandy from Cape grapes were distilled in 1672! We have come a very long way since then when it comes to the quality of our brandy, but still, Cape Brandy Pudding remains an old time favourite :) Growing up in South Africa is great fun with all the recipes your mother makes and teaches you during your younger years!
