Sunday was the Super Bowl, but no one was bowled away by any super musical performances. Get it? Unfortunately, I do not.
Anyway, we didn’t get any nip slips this year, but we did get a National Anthem slip, which isn’t nearly as sexy or interesting. Still, Christina Aguilera mangled the National Anthem somewhat, and I’m sure “what a girl wants” is not to be Twitter-insulted by everyone from John Cena to “Weird” Al Yankovic. That’s why Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas is coming to her aid. You know Fergie, right? The “pitchy,” hump-loving singer whose rendition of “Sweet Child o’ Mine” with Slash on Sunday was astoundingly sub-karaoke? Well, here’s what she has to say:
“It’s such a huge venue, your nerves take a hold of you,” Fergie said during sportscaster Dan Patrick’s radio show. “I completely understand. She’s one of the best singers of our time. Nobody can take that away from you. … But you get nervous at these things. We’re human.”
That’s fair. I get nervous when I have to get up to pee during a stand-up show, cause all the other stand-ups make fun of you. However, if you’re getting paid big bucks to sing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl, and you’ve been a platinum selling recording artist for 1999, you could at least write some cheat notes on your hand. And if you’re a Fergie, you should stop speaking / singing for awhile, or at least speak about things we care about, like obvious metaphors for boobs. (MTV)
