I moved four hours away, to a new city, and started a new job last week. Things have been a littttttttttttttttttttttttttttlllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllle crazy:)
My mistake. But, that wasn’t really the point…
I see you didn’t address the core argument: she sounds and looks like J-Lo in/on this ‘new’ album.
Her PR/ marketing people know what they’re doing. These patterns are repeated over and over again. There’s nothing wrong with this: it is the mass marketing of pop music. You like what you like—musical tastes differ and that’s okay.
But, don’t try to tell me the similarities are not striking…and obvious.
I love the Beastie Boys. I grew up with them, and followed them with each new album. I love the Muppets, so this mash-up cover of one of my fav BB hits is beautiful. MCA would have loved this.
As people mourn Robin Williams, I am reminded on how hard I took MCA’s (Adam Yauch) death. Thinking about that senseless, unexplained illness and how it ravaged a young brilliant mind and body still makes me catch my breath when I think of the loss of him.
I like think maybe this tribute would have spoke to him more than the money or awards. . .
