Happy Thursday… Muppets Chicken Song

Oscar Thoughts

Well Oscar night is in the books.  And it went as expected.  “The King’s Speech” was the big winner of the night.  And whereas I didn’t have issue with how much of the evening played out.  I would like to discuss something.  Yes, I’m looking at you Gwyneth Paltrow.

As if your performance with Cee Lo Green on the Grammys wasn’t bad enough, you had to come on and perform some load of crap song from a load of crap movie (Country Strong) on the Oscars last night.  And here is the problem, Paltrow can’t sing.   Look Gwyneth, I’ll let you get by with your paltry acting skills.  But I will draw the line at singing.  Just becasue you are married to the lead singer to Coldplay, sang a duet with Hughy Lewis, and appeared on Glee doesn’t mean you should make this a full time thing.   And now you are busting out a full on country album?  Really?  I’m sorry, but someone has been lying to you about your singing talents.

Thank god Anne Hathaway is hot or the Oscarcast would have been more painful than it was.  How drunk was James Franco?  I’ve never seen anyone  squint so much in my life.

But other than that, I was happy with the Oscars..

Ear Drum Penetration: Grammy Thoughts

Really Cee-Lo?  You went with this?  You already look like a f*cking walking cartoon as it is, so you thought you would spice it up with this?  And puppets? Thanks for making Lady Gaga look normal for one night.  Maybe it is my age, but did I miss the boat on Bob Dylan?  About 2/3rds of that performance was good.  Mumford & Sons were great, whomever followed them decent.  Bob Dylan could have used some time clearing his throat.  I know he is some kind of great musician, and maybe I need to do some more reasearch, but the last two times (actually the only two times) I have ever seen him has been on the Grammys.  And he blew both times.

Anyway, over all the performances were right pretty hot last night.  I actually found myself enjoying the Muse performance, even though I am generally not a fan of theirs.  The awards were fairly predictable, and even better that Bieber didn’t win.

Full list of winners here.

Here is a look at what is going on in the music biz.

Making History? :  Billboards next release of the Hot 100 will come out on February 17th.  But the real big story is will there be new number one?  And if so, there is a little bit more riding on this one.  The next number one artist will hold the spot of the 1,000th number one song on the Hot 100.   Odds on favorite in the clubhouse is Lady Gaga with her new single “Born This Way” (scary and kind of mannish?) set to debut on February 11th.  Others in contention are Pink with “F**kin’ Perfect” and the always popular Glee cast which released nine songs from their post Superbowl episode and this weeks normal turn.  Of course there could always be a repeat #1, which would push the drama another week.   The list started with Ricky Nelson’s “Poor Little Fool” the week the list originated — Aug. 4, 1958.

Breaking Up Is Hard To Do:  You might have missed last week, but the band the White Stripes is breaking up.  I wonder if they will still be siblings or if that is in the trash too?  Also calling it quits is Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz.  And we really thought they had a shot.  Maybe she is just keeping pace with her sister.  Spin takes a look at why you might not be missing the White Stripes.

Grammys:  Hey, don’t forget to set your DVR, but the Grammys air this Sunday night.  Spin.com ranks the favorites for the major categories.  As far as performances go, it has been confirmed that Bob Dylan and Dr. Dre have been added to the line up.  It is said that Dr. Dre will be performing with his protegé Eminem.  Also slated to perform are Arcade Fire, Miranda Lambert, Muse, Usher, Jaden Smith, B.o.B., Bruno Mars, Janelle Monae, Drake, Cee Lo Green, and Sir Mick Jagger.

Lollapalooza 2011: Eminem, Muse, Foo Fighters will headline the music fest, slated for August 5-7th in Chicago.   This marks the 7th year that the festival has been held in Chicago, and also it is the festivals 20th anniversary.  A full line up of artists will be announced in April.

SNL Thoughts

Did anyone happen to catch SNL last weekend?  Musical guest Cee Lo Green was on.  You know, he is the guy with the catchy tune “Forget You” (or F*ck You) if you are not offended easily.  Look, love the song.  There is nothing better than telling of a cheating bitch by telling her to F-off.  I’m down with that.

I know that we also can’t help the genetic cards we are dealt.  You can’t make yourself taller or shorter (who would want that?) But I’m sorry, is there any dude that is funnier looking then Cee Lo Green?  He looks like he was put together with spare parts.  He is just a little on the weird looking side.  And believe me, I’ve seen some weird looking people.  I’ve been to Omaha.

Either way, kudos to you Cee Lo for realizing that you aren’t going anywhere in life with your looks, so you took your voice (which could also be classified as odd) and became a R&B star.  That is one way to get some trim.  Well played sir..

Here’s a look at what’s up in the music biz.

King of Pop: “Michael” the posthumous release by the late Michael Jackson will hit stores next Tuesday.  Containing material the Jackson was working before his death in 2009, this was finished by big names in the industry.  Billboard goes song by song on the upcoming album to give you a preview.

Black Eyed Boyle?:  Susan Boyle is back at number 1 on the top 200.  And the Black Eyed Peas (story) debut at number 6 with their release of “The Beginning” last week.   A much softer opening for the Peas then expected considering their last album debuted at number 1.  Much can be contributed to the lead single “The Time (Dirty Bit)” not topping the charts like “Boom, Boom, Pow” did in 2009.  Taylor Swift comes in at number 2.

Katy Perry Causing Fireworks: Not really, but her song “Fireworks” is at the top of the hot 100 this week.   The newly minted Mrs. Russell Brand became the first female artist in 11 years to have three straight #1 radio singles.   The last person to do that was Monica, in 1998-1999.   This also makes the sixth week in a row that there is a new number one on the Hot 100.  A feat that hasn’t happened in 20 years.

The Results Are In:  The results of a reader poll for the best album on 2010 are in.  And the winner is…David Archuleta?  Really.  I just kicked the dog over that one America.  At least Eminem came in second with “Recovery”.

American’s Idol, Still #1 In Our Heart: Carrie Underwood was the big winner at the American Country Awards recently.  We see no problem with that.  She’s hot, she’s got a great voice, and she’s hot.

Spin The Top: In a list that looks like an Indie music scene nightmare.  Spin ranks the top 40 albums of 2010.  Who’s on top?  None other than Kanye West.

Enter Sandman:  Take a look at three decades of Metallica photos.

Spin’s 20:  Here’s a look at the top 20 songs according to Spin.   Top spot goes to Cee Lo Green, with “F*ck You”.
