Billie Eilish is actually very good. I’m digging her stuff really…

So this new pop artist named Billie Eilish has been getting a lot of hype through the music industry. Funny thing is, I never really heard of her much and never really heard a single song by her until now. After all this hype and people ramming her music down our throats, I finally decided to hit up youtube and listen to her songs myself and surprisingly, I’m digging ’em. I think she’s very good and will probably end up getting her album, “When we All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go” which is her first album. This is her first record in her career and already she won all the top awards in the Grammy’s: “Record of the Year”, “Album of the Year”, “Song of the Year” and “Best New Artist”.

I think the Grammy’s did the right thing for once ’cause Billie’s music is actually enjoyable. This rap artist by the name of Lizzo is also getting a lot of industry buzz. I tried to listen to her music as well but don’t really like Lizzo at all. Her stuff don’t grab me but Billie’s music catches my attention. Billie is very good and I’m gonna get her album for sure next time I buy music from Itunes.

I mostly listen to rock & metal and mostly listen to stuff from the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, and early 90’s but sometimes I do listen to today’s music. I listen to all kinds of music even pop music.. it’s just that rock & metal is my main genre. When I want to listen to something different, I’ll put on a pop album or a rap album ’cause I do dig that stuff sometimes.

Does Joey Kramer deserve to play with Aerosmith at Musicares and at the Grammy’s this weekend? Yes, absolutely… I’m siding with Kramer 100%…

Well this is interesting… there’s a new feud heating up with the guys in the band Aerosmith. Aerosmith is no stranger to not getting along with their own bandmaters past and present.

This time the band is feuding with their former drummer, Joey Kramer over whether or not Joey will be good enough to play at MusiCares and the Grammy’s this weekend after dealing with injuries.

After reading about this new feud Kramer filed a lawsuit against the other guys in the band Aerosmith ’cause they wouldn’t allow Kramer to perform with them at MusiCares and the Grammy’s this weekend. Why? It’s because the other guys in the band thinks he no longer has it anymore with the drums after dealing with minor injuries which forced Kramer to pull out several Aerosmith shows in the past. The band claims that there was not enough preparation for Kramer to rehearse with the band; however, Kramer says he did everything he could to prove that he still got it on the drums but the band won’t let him in no matter what Kramer says or does.

Kramer tried to make it to rehearsal at the Grammy’s but was denied entry by security hired by the band themselves.

Kramer filed the lawsuit but the judge rejects it… the judge clearly siding with the band agreeing with them about not enough preparation for rehearsal.

This is totally wrong and unfair. I’m siding with Joey on this 100%. I mean, Joey was the founding member of Aerosmith… he was there at the beginning during the band’s formation when they were first starting out. It was Steven and Tom who first recruited Joey when they were forming. On top of that, it was Joey Kramer himself who came up with the Aerosmith band name. Joey’s been in the band for 50 years and helped create the band’s biggest hits and this is how the band treats him?

I just think the band are just upset at Joey ’cause he missed several shows due to injuries and this is their payback. That’s the thing with the music industry and playing in bands… you’re gonna deal with a lot of huge egos, backstabbing, betrayal, drama, etc. That’s what I think is going on here is that the other guys in Aerosmith just betrayed Joey. Remember, Aerosmith is no stranger to betraying their own members ’cause they almost betrayed Steven Tyler when they tried to move on without him.

Being a professional musician may sound fun but not always. You’ll deal with a lot of bullshit and a lot of musicians can be assholes too.

I think Joey Kramer did the right thing suing the band and was completely justifiable… it’s a shame the judge sided with the band, though. Truthfully, I think the band paid the judge a lot of money to side with them. Like I said above, I think the band is just upset that Joey missed shows due to injuries. Well they need to get over themselves… they should have supported Joey through his injuries but I guess not. Like I said, bands are assholes and a lot of them can’t be trusted. Lot of ego there and that’s all I see.

Joey was always an important member of Aerosmith and of course, he deserves to celebrate the band’s success over the years at the Grammy’s and MusiCares. Joe Perry has always been a bit of a control freak.

I wish Mr. Kramer well. Aerosmith without Joey behind the kit would be a joke and I think the other guys are making a big mistake. Hope they regret it later.

Why are music award shows trying to shut out Taylor Swift?

The Grammy award nominations are out for 2018 and they are terrible like they usually are every year. Taylor Swift snubbed again in major award categories when she just put out a new album titled, Reputation. I am noticing more and more that music award shows are trying their best to shut out Taylor Swift. The Grammy’s didn’t shut out Taylor Swift completely; however, they did give her a nomination for something. They gave her a nomination for “Best Country Song” category, but it’s a song she didn’t perform herself. She wrote a song for Little Big Town called, “Better Man” and Taylor will probably end up winning that award too.

Check out the nominations here…

Grammy Nominations 2018: Complete List

Why are the Grammy’s trying to ignore Taylor Swift? Why are they snubbing her from major awards like “Record of the Year” and “Album of the Year”? I think the obvious answer to that is politics. Are award shows upset that Taylor continues to stay apolitical in her career? Ya know, Taylor keeping quiet about her political views. Are they upset that she refuses to be a loudmouth about liberal politics and she won’t bash Donald Trump? Those are probably the reasons.

Another reason is that race could be a big part of it too. Have you noticed each year in the Grammy’s there have been more black artists getting nominated than white artists? This year there are mostly black artists nominated. Pretty much all artists nominated for “Record of the Year” and “Album of the Year” are black artists except for Lorde.

Yeah, no doubt the Grammy’s are doing all they can to keep Al Sharpton and all the race baiters out there happy. All of this have got to do something with race, absolutely. The Grammy’s are looking to be more like the BET awards nowadays.

Look… don’t get me wrong… I have nothing against black artists because I happen to like some rap/hip hop and R&B myself. It’s just that it’s unfair for these award shows to ram these rap and pop artists down our throats when there are many other talented artists that deserve these opportunities. I think it’s because some don’t want Taylor Swift hogging the award show spotlight and that’s what they’re afraid of.

I love Taylor Swift. I just think the music industry just stopped caring for her. Now they’re trying to ram Beyonce, Jay-Z and Kendrick Lamar down our throats… artists that I don’t care for at all. Award shows are getting worse every year. Fed up with them all. I stopped watching all award shows and you should too.

Speaking of Taylor Swift, I haven’t bought her new album Reputation but I’m gonna get it pretty soon. I love her previous album 1989. Yeah, I’m mostly into rock n’ roll and metal music but sometimes I have to listen to a little bit of everything else that’s out there.

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.

http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2017/02/13/singer-joy-villa-wears-trump-dress-to-grammys.html

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.
