Can the Gods be so cruel?! A new stye to contend with, this time in my opposite eye! ARGH! Very upsetting! This one was nicer than the last one in that I was able to lance it and drain it myself because it was within easier reach. It's been a painful two days though, and it has messed up my poor left eye regardless. I guess I am now more prone to these than ever before in my life and very hygienic steps will have to be taken in order to prevent these from ever happening to me again; antibiotic ointment nightly for each eye will be a must, among other measures to be taken.
So much awful backlash against Madonna for having been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Monday night! I am actually shocked and a bit puzzled as to why so many were opposed and pissed about Madge getting the honor; she did start off in a small rock band in case you didn't know! Hundreds upon hundreds of nasty comments on the Net about her not being deserving, that she's not talented, that she's an empty pop star, etc. Say what you will about the whore she once was/portrayed, there is true substance to this woman's music and she has always been a consistently enjoyable entertainer! These people are just terribly jealous I feel and grossly unfair! Madonna revolutionized the music business and I dare anyone to not acknowledge the many hit singles she's had and admit to not liking quite a few of them as being pretty damn good. I hated the fact "Hawk Nose" Timberlake was the one presenting her with the award though; quite boring if you ask me, but whatever. You can diss all the other Madonna wannabes if you like, but not the actual M herself. She has put out great material, NO QUESTION. SO THERE! And I'm not some crazy obsessed-with-Madonna gay dude either saying this; I really mean it as objectively as possible, because I do tend to have issues with her at times, but not enough to cloud my judgment on her remarkable body of work or value as a terrific performer.
American Idol this week was pretty cool. The final 12 all had to sing Beatles songs! WOOHOO! They've done this before in past seasons I believe, but it's always nice to give the Liverpudlians the music recognition they highly deserve! Those two Latino David dudes, Hernández and Archuleta are quite nice-looking in their own way, even though this week they performed kind of badly. The Beatles are obviously in the Rock Hall of Fame, I wonder if future American Idol contestants will ever get the chance to sing Madonna songs, or have they already? Can ya hear the jealous opposition now?! Congrats also, to most deserving inductees John Mellencamp and the Dave Clark Five!
