America’s Got Talent did something right for a change, I’m impressed with Darci Lynne Farmer!!! WOW!!!

I gave up watching, America’s Got Talent, a long time ago. I just lost interest in the show and stopped watching. The 12th season of the show just got over, and the new winner for this season has just been announced. A young 12 year old named, Darci Lynn Farmer, is AGT champion for this year. I didn’t watch this season at all… since the internet have been praising about her a lot, it got me a little curious, so I decided to youtube her and check her out of for myself. She’s a ventriloquist, and she’s also a singer.

I watched a few of her performances in youtube, and I am very impressed. Actually, I was blown away. She gave me goosebumps and makes me want to watch more of her performances. When you watch her perform and you don’t smile at all, I wanna know what’s wrong with you?

AGT haven’t been choosing that many good winners lately over the years at all; maybe the last winner I liked was Jackie Evancho. I haven’t been impressed with many winners over the years. Finally,  here comes Darci Lynne who I’ve just became a new fan of. She’s very enjoyable and likeable.

If she keeps doing what she’s doing, she could be a huge star. After this, she’s probably gonna perform ventriloquist shows on a regular basis; if she goes on tour and performs a show around here, I would totally go. She’s very entertaining to watch for sure.

Congrats Darci! I can see her doing this for a living… performing shows for children and people of all ages.


Get well soon goes out to Nick Cannon…

As you all probably know by now, Nick Cannon, host of “America’s Got Talent” and the husband of pop star, Mariah Carey, has been hospitalized with mild kidney failure. No matter how minor it is, it’s still serious. Nick is a pretty funny guy and interesting. I wish him well and speedy recovery. Kind of sad that he might not do, “America’s Got Talent” this year because of this. I was kind of hoping him and Howard Stern would be on at the same time.


Report: Howard Stern is confirmed as new judge for “American’s Got Talent”!!!

Another big news announcement today is that Howard Stern is officially the new judge for, “America’s Got Talent”. Pierce Morgan has left the show to concentrate on his own show for CNN, and Howard Stern is taking his place. Howard gets $15 million a year for judging on “America’s Got Talent” and the show will be moved to NYC, so Howard can be near his new work place.

Deadline, reports.

Well, this is certainly going to be great publicity for his Sirius radioshow as I can see “America’s Got Talent” promoting the hell out of it. We all know how controversial, sexist, and inflammatory Howard can get on his Sirius show, but hopefully he’ll be a 100% professional. He might say something sexist and perverted by accident toward the female performers though, especially the HOT ones. I hope NBC can handle, Howard Stern.

I love listening to Howard, I’m a fan, but do you think he’s right for a family friendly entertainment show? We’ll have to see how he does. I’m sure he will be professional for NBC. He’ll be an entertaining judge though.

This means that Howard will have performers and judges as guests for his Sirius show. Who’s going to be the first judge to do an interview with Howard on Sirius: Howie or Sharon?


Edit to add: Somebody in facebook said that Sharon and Howie was already on Howard Stern – Sirius, a while ago, I don’t listen to Howard since I don’t subscribe to Sirius.

In defense of Lou Reed…

Well, it seems that Lou Reed is getting some big negative backlash just because he didn’t want Susan Boyle to sing his anthem, “A Perfect Day”. Reading the comments by fans at TMZ, or perezhilton and other music websites. Lou Reed has been getting so much hate all week. Lou has been called an egomaniac has been, an old washed up loser, people even says no one knows who he is anymore and they even called, the Velvet Underground to be one of the worst bands on planet Earth. Really? Are they serious? Most music fans are siding with Susan Boyle because they feel sorry for her. Do music fans realize who they are hating on? No. I don’t think they realize who they are hating on.

This is Lou Reed. LOU FUCKING REED! This guy is a legend. He’s been in the music business for way over 30 years. This guy’s been playing in rock n’ roll bands since the 1950’s. He didn’t become famous for music until the 1960’s when he formed, The Velvet Underground, with John Cale. Back in the ’60’s when the Velvet Underground got their record deal, their fame was all because of, Andy Warhol. It was Andy Warhol who caught the attention with the music of the Velvet Underground, so he recommended a label to sign the band a record contract. When Nico joined the band, they named their first album after Andy Warhol. That album didn’t do well in record sales but there’s a big part of the legacy of that great record that people don’t understand. After they fired Nico and Andy Warhol, they continued to release albums. They didn’t become mainstream and popular until the album, “Loaded” which was an album full of hits, that album sold well.

Lou Reed had his share of failures and success in his career, but despite of that, the guy accomplished a lot in the music industry over the years. He did so much. Read his wikipedia here, all you need to know about him and the Velvet Underground.

Did Lou Reed get famous over some stupid TV reality show like Susan Boyle did? No. It wasn’t easy for him to get fame. It took him a lot of work to get there. There was no such thing as reality TV back in those days. Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against Susan Boyle. She’s a decent singer and all, but all those music fans siding with her, don’t understand Lou’s legacy. Lou went through so much over the years. He did way more than Susan Boyle. The people siding with Susan Boyle, I am noticing listen to commercial and mainstream music. Maybe that’s why they don’ t know who Lou Reed and the Velvet Underground are. Kids today would listen to stuff like Susan Boyle, Rihanna or Beyonce, but they don’t understand older classic music such as the Velvet Underground.

I’ve also heard them say the Velvet Underground are terrible. Really? The Velvet Underground were one of the best rock n’ roll bands back in those days. They were fuckin’ GREAT! Lou Reed and John Cale made excellent music. I loved songs they wrote together, like “Waiting for the Man”, “Sweet Jane”, “I’ll Be Your Mirror”, etc. To those who think Susan Boyle is so great, does she play an instrument and write her own songs? No. She sings other people’s songs. The Velvet Underground never did that. They played their own instruments and wrote everything…and the Velvet Underground happened to be , “Rock and Roll” Hall of Famers!

People should respect the legends of music, not trash them. Lou Reed is an amazing songwriter. He’s still doing music to this day. I think he has a reason to not let Susan Boyle sing his song. I think he is clearly trying to protect his legacy. Since, “A Perfect Day” is a well known anthem, maybe he feels it doesn’t need to be performed on a reality show? It might ruin the legacy of the song. I’m not really sad for Susan Boyle, I’m more sad for Lou Reed ’cause a legend like him doesn’t deserve this backlash and he deserves to be respected. It’s Lou’s music, he has the right to do what he wants with it. Lou’s got my back 100%. I’ve always admired the man’s music for many years. I honestly think Lou did the right thing to not let her sing the song. Just my opinion.

Thought: Another note on Lou Reed’s, “A Perfect Day”…

On a side note, even if it’s true that Lou Reed snubbed Susan Boyle for, “A Perfect Day” song, well, like I always say about an artist and their copyright, it’s his music. If he owns the copyrights and the trademarks. He has the right to control his music how he pleases. He maybe a real dick about it, sure. IT’S HIS MUSIC. He wrote the song.

As for Susan crying about it, this just proves that she can’t handle with fame with music. She doesn’t have what it takes.

“Weird” Al Yankovic tried asking many artists to parody songs from them, and when artists refuses, does “Weird” Al cry? No. He’s strong about it and moves on. He knows that the name of the game with the music business and he knows how tough it’s going to be.

Susan got a lot to learn when she wants to cover songs by artists on TV shows or record them for her albums. As you can see, I’m totally on Lou Reed’s side!

I’m sure Lou will talk soon and can’t wait to hear his thoughts. I’m sure he’ll squash this news and say he respects Susan Boyle’s talent.


Report: Susan Boyle confirms “A Perfect Day” snub, but Lou Reed denies it…

Oh my! This war is getting nasty fast! TMZ reports, that Susan Boyle’s managers confirmed the news is true that Lou Reed, snubbed “A Perfect Day” from her. However, Lou Reed’s lawyers spoke out and said the news isn’t true. Lou Reed’s reps said he wouldn’t do something like this.

See y’all? I told you, Lou Reed wouldn’t do anything like this. I’m sure we’ll hear from Lou Reed himself when he starts doing interviews in the media about this controversy.

Susan needs to get over herself and her ego. Sounds like she’s trying to get more attention off of Lou Reed to promote her own music. Bitch!


Report: Lou Reed won’t let Susan Boyle cover “A Perfect Day”, because he’s no fan of her…

TMZ is the first to report that Susan Boyle was to perform on “America’s Got Talent” earlier this week, but she walked off the show in tears due to the fact that Lou Reed confronted her about not wanting her to perform a song he wrote called, “A Perfect Day”. It is a well known song he wrote with his legendary band, The Velvet Underground. She didn’t ask his permission to perform the song and he wouldn’t give permission for her to sing it because he simply is no fan of, Susan Boyle.

TMZ reports.

In reality, I don’t think Lou Reed would be this mean. He don’t seem like that type of guy. I think Lou himself will speak out on this story soon to clear everything up. Maybe he’ll say this story is bullshit and made up, but maybe he’ll say there is some truth to this, don’t know. He seems like a very friendly and gracious guy. He supported all musical acts as he has performed, “A Perfect Day”, with many other famous artists in the past.

I vote BULLSHIT on this story, that it’s not true at all. Lou Reed is a professional musician. He’s been playing music for way over 30 years, his whole life revolved around music. He does allow other artists to cover his songs as well. This news is tabloids, I’m pretty sure it is.

Btw, Lou Reed is a favorite artist of mine, always has been, loved him and the Velvet Underground. Wonderful songwriter.


BREAKING NEWS: CNN admits Piers Morgan taking over for Larry King is true!!!

After months of many rumours hit the web that “America’s Got Talent” judge, Piers Morgan could possibly take over Larry King Live, CNN admits that the news is true. Piers will be taking over in January. Piers himself released a statement saying it’s a dream come true for him and something he always wanted to do was to take over Larry King.

Pierse doesn’t plan to leave “AGT” as he plans to do both shows, “AGT” and “CNN Live” at the same time, since both shows are in the Los Angeles area.

Oh my! I can see Piers interviewing a lot of competitors from “America’s Got Talent” on his show. Don’t be surprised if the 10 year old opera singer, Jackie Evancho, could be his first interview guest in January.


Report: Piers Morgan to replace Larry King? I call this a rumour…

“America’s Got Talent” judge, Piers Morgan is rumoured to be in talks of raplacing Larry King’s CNN show. It’s reported that Piers is getting close to a deal. This would cause Piers to leave “America’s Got Talen” to join CNN full time when Larry King leaves.

Variety Reports:


I must be missing something here but did Larry ever announce a retirement? I don’t think he ever did. It maybe his 25th anniversary at CNN but that doesn’t mean he’s leaving. I can’t see Larry leaving the show. He’ll be doing that ’til the day he dies. I don’t think CNN would ever fire him either ’cause he’s too valuable. Yeah, I call bullshit rumour for sure!


Cool Video: Susan Boyle is phenomenal…

I didn’t see the America’s Got Talent finale last night so I went on youtube looking for it. I didn’t like her the first time, didn’t think she was anything special. Now when I saw this performance, I had goosebumps and she floored me this time. She’s one of the best female singers in a long time. I think I’m definitely going to buy her album. There’s something about her voice that draws you in.

Fuck everything else in American Idol or America’s Got Talent, Susan Boyle’s the best thing to come around. I was blown away by this performance. Absolutely beautiful!
