Thoughts on singer/songwriter, Joy Villa wearing a Trump “MAGA” dress at the Grammy’s…

This is pretty amazing and this was a very courageous thing for this beautiful woman to do. Of course, it’s pissing off all the liberals and the snowflakes. A lot of liberals on the internet going, “You right-wingers tell stars to keep politics out of music but when stars go pro-Trump, you love them for it”.

Well, music stars and celebrities showing their support for Trump publicly is not political. What they do is try to stand up for something they believe in. Not being afraid of “free speech” and staying above the negativity & hate that the left spews out all the time. This is about unity and positivity which is what Trump’s campaign was about all along.

This gorgeous woman makes me proud to be a Trump supporter even more. Yeah, people gave me a lot of shit for being a Trump supporter but this woman is inspiring me to stay above that stuff. That’s what the message she was trying to send. To rise above the haters and bullies in this world.

The liberal crybaby haters and snowflakes out there are living in a delusional fantasy world that her music career is over just because she publicly came out in support of Trump. Well, they are delusional ’cause Joy’s albums are skyrocketing.

She also gained a lot more popularity and fans. I listened to her “Vagabonds” song in youtube and it’s a pretty cool song. I’ll probably get her latest EP.

Those Trump haters and snowflakes believe that if you are pro-Trump, you lose a lot of respect and your reputation is ruined if you support Trump. No. You see, that’s what the media wants you to believe. It’s actually a good thing to support Trump

Whenever I write and release new songs, will my music life be over only because I support Trump? I predict no. It’s a possibility that even more people will listen to my music when I get new stuff out there. Maybe this is why the local music scene in Albany refuses to promote my music ’cause of my “right-wing” political beliefs as I know how left-wing this music scene is. I’ll have another blog post on this soon.

Anyway, back to Joy Villa this woman is awesome and she just got herself a new fan which is me. She has my back and full support 100%.

Thoughts on Metallica and Gaga performing together, having technical issues with microphone… also, more thoughts on the Grammy’s show last night…

I think the goal with this collaboration is that James and Lady Gaga were to trade vocal lines back and forth in the first verses before the chorus… then they would sing the chorus together. However, though, James was having technical issues with the mic. He tried singing the first verses but he couldn’t hear anything coming out of it. So while James was having technical issues during the first verses, Gaga sung her lines of what she was supposed to sing anyways. During that performance, you can immediately tell that James was pissed as fuck. Out of frustration, he gave up on that mic and him and Gaga shared a mic together. Then when the sound guy finally fixed the mic, James went back to his mic and sung the second verses this time.

A lot of people online are unfairly blaming Metallica for this but the way I see it, this was not their fault at all. It’s just that the Grammy’s hired a crappy sound guy and they had amatuer-ish stage technicians. Don’t blame Metallica, blame the Grammy’s. It was totally their fault.

After this, I think Metallica will soon put out a statement and talk about what happened. Then Metallica and Gaga will perform this song again together at one of their concerts for their “Hardwired” US tour so they can have a better performance, I’m sure that will happen.

People are hating Metallica even more after that performance and I can’t understand why. Metallica continues to have a lot of haters but I always respected that band and always will. People’s hatred for them got worse after that performance.

Other than the technical issues, it proved that James Hetfield can really sing and he’s no lip syncer at all. Same with Gaga, she’s a real singer as well and I loved how she looks like she’s having a blast performing with them ’cause she seems like a real Metallica fan too. I think Lady Gaga is winning my respect back and I think I’ll go back to supporting her music again. Remember, don’t blame Metallica for this ’cause the Grammy’s had technical issues throughout the show. They were horrible.

Other than that, last night’s Grammy awards was surprisingly a pretty good show. They kept politics out of things for the most part except for Katy Perry who went political about Trump’s border wall and immigration predictably so screw Katy Perry. Also, The Grammy’s president Neil Portnow went on a political rant about how President Trump needs to protect the arts and I’m like “what?”.

I thought the best performances of the night were Beyonce and Bruno Mars’s Prince tribute. Both were pretty amazing, I thought. Yeah, I know I gave Beyonce a lot of shit over the years but she kept her political messages out of things for once and that was good enough to have a change of heart with her. She didn’t bash Trump at all which I was surprised about. She focused on the performance which was actually interesting. As far as Bruno Mars goes, I was never a fan of that guy but I’m starting to like him more and actually thinking about buying his music soon. I thought Chance the Rapper was pretty good too.

I’m glad they gave “Record of the Year” and “Album of the Year” to Adele ’cause “25” is a good album as I have that album in my CD collection. I have all of Adele’s albums. She’s my favorite artist too.

As far as James Corden goes, the Grammy’s host, I was surprised that he didn’t go political at all. Didn’t bash Trump or anything like that. He focused on making people laugh and telling jokes which is what he was supposed to do. James Corden did a good job and I enjoyed watching him.

It was surprisingly a pretty good “Grammy’s” night. Better than last year’s anyways and I think they’re improving.

If you think Meryl Streep’s insane political rant at the Golden Globes was bad, celebs ranting about politics will be worse at tonight’s Grammy’s and the Oscars too!!!

Meryl Streep bashing Trump at an award show. That won’t be the last of celebrities bashing our new president as there will be more of it tonight and probably at the Oscars too.

Just think what Beyonce is gonna say about Trump tonight at the Grammy’s when she wins her awards ’cause you know she’s gonna say something and I’m sure there will be some musical performances that will have themes that will bash Trump. I also think Katy Perry will go political about Trump during her performance. Lady Gaga is set to perform with Metallica (another odd collaboration) but will they go political tonight? I think some of the award presenters will probably bash Trump tonight at the Grammy’s. The Trump bashing at award shows won’t end.

Trying to debate whether or not I should watch the Grammy’s tonight but I probably won’t. It’s not only politics is why I probably won’t watch the Grammy’s, it’s just that the list of slated performers and the nominations this year are horrible. David Bowie getting snubbed for “Best Album” is good enough for me to not want to watch it.

I’ll probably watch WWE “Elimination Chamber”  ppv tonight instead. Sounds like a good idea!

I will watch the Lady Gaga and Metallica performance in youtube, though, just not on TV! Thinking about skipping the Grammy’s tonight. It’s gonna be nothing but a big lovefest for liberals anyways.

The Grammy’s for 2017 is gonna suck… expect a lot of Donald Trump bashing too…

I’m totally skipping the next Grammy awards. Music awards shows are getting real horrible lately. In fact, they are getting much worse. I’m sick of award shows ramming Beyonce down our throats every year. So sick of Beyonce. Can’t stand her. It looks like the Grammy’s are finally getting tired of Taylor Swift, Kanye and Rihanna so now they’re getting high on Beyonce. So pathetic.

Another thing that is pissing me off about this year’s Grammy’s show is that Davie Bowie has been snubbed from “Album of the Year” for his new album, “Blackstar”. I thought “Blackstar” was a pretty amazing record and I expected it to get “Album of The Year” nod ever since the album came out. That whole album is really amazing and it’s bullshit that it got snubbed.

The Grammy’s winners this year is gonna be predictable, though as Beyonce will probably sweep everything. *yawn*

What will Beyonce’s Grammy performance be like? More cop hating and more BLM stuff?

I’m sure there’s gonna be tons of Trump bashing throughout the show too. James Corden who is the Grammy’s host will probably bash Trump a lot in his opening speech. Trump will be in office when the Grammy’s are on TV in Feb. so yeah, they will probably bash Trump a lot. Wouldn’t surprise me at all. There’s probably gonna be lots of liberal politics throughout the show like last year.

The Grammy’s did the right thing last year by giving Taylor Swift the “Album of the Year” award ’cause “1989” is a pretty good album. I’m not ashamed to say that Taylor Swift is actually pretty talented.

In defense to Lady Gaga tributing Bowie at the Grammy’s…

I know everyone may not be pleased about Lady Gaga performing a tribute to Bowie at the Grammy’s. There’s always gonna be those haters ’cause you can’t please everyone right? Anyway, I can see why Lady Gaga was the right performer to tribute Bowie ’cause think about it, right? I’ve been following Gaga’s career for a pretty long time. Her music and her image is all Bowie-like. David Bowie was one of her biggest influences and you can tell. She’s a visual artist like him and she is a fashion artist like him. That’s why she always dresses so strangely and outrageously ’cause she’s like him, ya know? Bowie was a pretty important part of her life. Gaga is a like modern version of David Bowie. I can’t see anybody else tributing David Bowie other than her. She’s the only one that could do it. Some may not have been pleased with it but no matter what you think of it, Bowie himself would have been proud.

Beck came a long way to where he is today…

10364030_10152808645368579_5243139489117056404_n

If you read Beck’s bio online, you would see that Beck came a long way to get where he is today. He didn’t get where he is today over night. Back when Beck was a nobody, he started out as a folk, country and blues musician. At the time, he couldn’t get gigs so he started performing Mississippi John Hurt covers on a city bus in Los Angeles. At that time, Beck was a real-life “Loser” which inspired him to write that smash radio hit for the “MellowGold” album. As a teen, Beck struggled to get a job and tried to get a place to live on his own but with little success he decided to move to New York City to become involved in the folk scene in the Manhatten area. When that didn’t work out, Beck moved back to Los Angeles. Beck got a job at a video store and started getting actual gigs booked at art clubs and coffeehouses. He later got signed to BMG music after he made a demo in a friends living room in L.A.

Later in the early 90’s, Beck signed with Geffen records to release the Mellow Gold album. While the album was a smash hit and made no. 13 on the Billboard Top 200, the album suffered a backlash from critics ’cause of it’s weird sound and controversial lyrics, remember that? In the beginning, Beck struggled in the music industry and tried very hard to become the successful artist that he is today.

After “Mellow Gold”, Beck finally got accepted in the music industry with his hit album “Odelay” which was his best selling album. Then he went on to make other albums such as “Mutations”, “Sea Change”, “Midnight Vultures”, etc. Beck never stayed in one genre of music. He always switched from rock, folk, blues, jazz, hip hop, dance, etc. If you listen to his album “Midnight Vultures”, most of that album is a disco and dance album.

Whether you like Beck or hate him, you still need to give him the respect and kudos after he went from playing Mississippi John Hurt songs on a bus to being a Grammy winner for “Album of the Year”. Beck produced most of his own albums, played most of his own instruments. Beck really did work hard to earn that Grammy.

I wonder how Beyonce got where she is today? Oh that’s right, she got manufactured by record labels by getting her start through the R&B and pop group, Destiny’s Child. Beyonce only made 5 solo albums in her career and Beck have been making albums longer than her. Beyonce also had roles in a bunch of movies. Most of Beyonce’s music is all samples and the same beat throughout the whole song. She needed a bunch of songwriters and producers to help make her the music and Beyonce is considered an icon in today’s industry? Seriously?

I really hate today’s industry. Today’s music industry is a joke all-around.

Beck is a real and true music artist. He’s one of the few “real” music artists left, anyways. I’m glad he finally got his recognition. The Grammy’s did make the right decision. I’m gonna grab the “Morning Phase” album from Itunes soon.

The Grammy’s thoughts…

Yes, I did watch the Grammy’s last night ’cause I had nothing else better to do and I watched the show just for laughs alone. Predictably most of it was a pretty bad show but I think this year’s was the worse but thankfully Ac/Dc saved it at the beginning of it. I’m glad they put Ac/Dc as the first performer, otherwise we would have to get struck through a bad show just to see them. Ac/Dc killed it as expected! The band played their own instruments… there was no miming and lip-syncing to a backing track. Ac/Dc can really play and Brian Johnsonw was really singing. You can tell the band was doing everything for real! I think it’s safe to say that Ac/Dc was the only good thing about last night’s show. Ac/Dc is real music there and the band showed the Grammy’s artists how to really perform live!

Anyway, most of the show last night was boring ’cause there were way too many live performances and less awards given. I mean, really? Most of the performances the artists performed slow ballads. I was bored to tears when Lady Gaga and Tony got up there.

I even hated Kanye West’s performance… all he did was stand on a light with smoke coming out of it and moving his arms around while lip-syncing to a backing track.

The Awards given to was laughable as usual except I was pretty surprised that Beck won for “Album of the Year” for his newest album, “Morning Phase”. I used to like Beck but not anymore. I stopped liking Beck after the “Odelay” album ’cause I liked his earlier stuff more when he was doing the folk music thing like all the stuff he did on the “Mellowgold” album, that’s the kind of Beck I wanna hear. Beck has gone a bit too pop, in my opinion but I’m still happy for him that he won, though. Beck winning is better than Beyonce winning.

One thing I was disgusted with last night’s Grammy’s was that they ended the show with a “Black History Month” kind of thing and they payed tribute to the movie, “Selma” and that little thug, Michael Brown. I mean, really? I think the only reason they did that ’cause it was their way of making liberals and the black community happy ’cause their Beyonce didn’t win, “Album of the Year”. The Grammy’s did that ’cause they didn’t want to anger Al Sharpton and the race baiters. It was proven over and over again, that Michael Brown was a criminal and thug… and they just honored him last night. Typical liberal Hollywood! Nothing new there.

I’m sure Al Sharpton and the racebaiters are gonna be pissed that Beyonce didn’t win “Album of the Year” but they need to get over themselves and they need to learn that the world doesn’t revolve around them, that’s not how life works, ya know?

Once again, Ac/Dc was the only good thing about last night’s show and I’m glad to see Chris Slade back in the band.
