Nobody’s Perfect: Mariah Carey VS 115th Congress
This week, we have Mariah Carey VS the 115th Congress.
Let’s start with Mariah. There she was, all strutting feather pretty, in her poured into outfit in Times Square on New Year’s Eve, and then suddenly…oops.
She forgot the lyrics to her own song. Which means that all the millions of people watching were exposed to what REALLY happens at these concerts…the singers just sing along with their own tracks. That way, the sound man can turn up the mike when they are talking so everybody THINKS that the singer is really singing. (Or she lost her earpiece, who knows?)
It WAS pretty funny:
It’s not the first time stars have lip-synced:
Whitney Houston’s 1991 rendition of the “Star Spangled Banner” was lip-synced. “The music was pre-recorded, and so was the vocal,” confirmed Houston’s former musical director Rickey Minor to ABC News last year.
Well, Mariah is no Beyoncé or Whitney. At Obama’s inauguration, Beyoncé’ lip-synced, and we didn’t find out about it for weeks. And let’s not forget that NOBODY was going to take a chance with Whitney Houston at the Super bowl. It was the best karaoke job of her life. I don’t think many people found out about that for years…
But…to pull it off the star must at least be…can I say…sober?
And then there’s the first day of the 115th Congress.
They must have all been drunk. What did they do on the first day? Why, they all got their picture taken with Paul Ryan. All…of them. That’s what…over 600 pictures that the tax payers had to pay for? (More if you add the kids and wives.)
What? Is Paul the new messiah?
And while that was happening, the new Republicans met behind closed doors and the FIRST thing they did was get rid of Congress’s watchdog: the ethics committee.
All it took was one Donald Trump tweet to straighten them out. “What the HELL are you guys doing!!”
Okay, so he said it a lot nicer.
“With all that Congress has to work on, do they really have to make the weakening of the Independent Ethics Watchdog, as unfair as it … may be, their number one act and priority. Focus on tax reform, healthcare and so many other things of far greater importance! #DTS,” Trump said over two consecutive tweets.
And guess what? They backed down!
Donald’s use of Twitter is going to drive them all crazy…and GOOD!
So, who wins the Nobody’s Perfect Award?
Is it MS Carey? Who was more concerned with her outfit and how beautiful she felt in it, than actually singing?
Or was it the new Congress, whose first day gave Trump another victory.
If you said the 115th Congress, then I would agree. If you are in Times Square and didn’t NOTICE that there aren’t any backup singers, and it’s a recording, then you really are stupid. Frankly, I don’t think anybody cared a bit. Mariah could have just stormed off, but she handled it the only way she knew how…smile, say something nice, and just walk around. At least she didn’t fall off the stage.
“It is what it is.” she said.
The Congress on the other hand, as vain as Mariah Carey is, had to have their PICTURE taken with Paul Ryan?
Is THIS what we are paying for?
And to make matters worse, they closed the doors and tried to get rid of their own watchdog.
So, Congratulation to the 115th Congress, you win the Nobody’s Perfect First Award for 2017.
Hopefully you can get your shit together and start working.
The American people…will be watching. (And so will, President Trump.)
