I Can’t…

Sigh….Last week, the television and Internet made me so sad, and below is why.

1) America for eliminating Ellona Santiago on The X Factor.

After mini Chris Brown, Josh Levi, got kicked off the singing competition, I didn’t think that the show could get any worse. Sadly, I was wrong. Ellona Santiago, once a favorite to win, was the first one sent home during last week’s elimination. UGH!

As much as I want to support Simon Cowell’s ratings disaster of a show, I just can’t anymore. I mean….who am I going to root for now?? I guess there’s always Alex and Sierra?

Even though I loved this performance, Alex and Sierra’s lovebird storyline makes me want to vomit. Simon, please bring back Josh!

2) America for eliminating Matthew Schuler on The Voice.

I just can’t win with these singing competitions! This cutie was one of my favorites and arguably the best vocalist on the show. I love Christina Aguilera, but I don’t think that I can root for the remaining member on her team, Jacquie Lee. It’s just not going to be the same without Matthew!

3) The Grammys for snubbing Miley Cyrus.

Okay, I know that Miley Cyrus has had a crazy year filled with ungodly antics, but her album was GOOD! Like, how did she not get nominated for any of the major awards??? I’m sorry, but “Wrecking Ball” is WAY better than that stupid  “Roar” song…

I love Katy Perry, but no.

4) The Grammys for just being an overall hot mess.

I just have a list of Grammy questions that I need to be answered. For one, WHY is J. Cole not nominated for the Best Rap Performance category? WHY is Ariana Grande not nominated for Best New Artist? WHY is Faith Evans even nominated for a Grammy?!? I mean, did anyone even know that she had an album out? Do people even remember her??

Honestly, I just can’t. This year’s Grammys are a MESS and I can only hope that they do better next time.

p.s. MTV just named Miley Cyrus the best artist of the year!

Disney…Disney…Disney…

I hope everyone had a fantabulous weekend! I know I did, especially with all of the new releases at the box office. It is definitely the holiday season and the stars are coming out to play, which gives me even more hot messness to talk about before 2014. So, let’s get it!

1) Disney for approving the songs in Frozen.

After reading great reviews of the film, I was so excited to see Disney’s Frozen over the weekend. For the most part, Frozen did not disappoint. The characters were cute, funny, and lovable, while the plot was overall pretty entertaining. The only miss (and this was a BIG miss) was the music.

For the life of me, I do not know why Disney decided to skip on Alan Menkin for this project. Menkin was the genius behind such classics as The Little MermaidAladdin, and Hercules. Although Frozen tried to give us the same magical moments as these earlier pictures, the music just fell incredibly flat. I mean, the songs’ lyrics didn’t even rhyme! Not to mention, the vocabulary that was used was beyond basic. What happened to using words like “provincial” and “succession” ???

Honestly, all I can say is that I don’t remember a single song from the movie. Maybe next time Disney will actually get it right…

2) Kanye West for just being Kanye West.

Last week, Kanye did a series of interviews to try and explain his “creative genius” to the world. Unfortunately, Kanye allowed his temper to outshine his message and ended up getting into a heated argument on the radio show, Sway in the Morning.

Although I completely understand what Kanye is saying about people being “slaves,” I think that he needs to find a different approach to interviews.

3) X Factor for eliminating Josh Levi.

Simon Cowell’s X Factor is struggling in the ratings department and the show is about to lose one more viewer. Last Thursday, when I watched the live results show, I was in shock when two of the top talents left the competition – Josh Levi and Lillie McCloud. Even though I love Lillie, I never saw her in the final 4. Josh, however, was a different story. On the show, the kid had more talent in his left pinky than half the acts combined.

This kid is a STAR and it’s just a matter of time before we see an album or television show from him. TEAM JOSH!

4) People Magazine for naming Adam Levine “The Sexiest Man Alive.”

Now, I know that a lot of people find Adam to be incredibly “sexy,” but is he reeeeeeeally the sexiest man alive??? I think not.

And in sadder news…

Today, Hollywood and fans of the Fast and Furious movies continue to mourn the loss of Paul Walker. The 40-year-old actor was in a fiery car crash on Saturday in Santa Clarita, CA. Investigators are still trying to figure out causes for the fatal accident.
