Stop me if you’ve heard this one! Just kidding.
I would rather have watched Desperate Housewives tonight, but since the American Music Awards air on ABC, that’s what I’m half-watching tonight. [Watch the performances here]
Watching NKOTB do the “Right Stuff” dance took me back. Waaaaaay back to when I was like 10 years old and fighting over which one of them was “mine” with my friends. Damn I’m old.
On to Rihanna. I didn’t want to like her. And for the longest time, I didn’t. But mostly because I thought she was biting my girl C-Mil’s look. (And she was. Check out pics of the early years of her career) But she started releasing all these songs that I just can’t get enough of. I’ve got her latest, “Rehab”, on perma-repeat. Just saw her AMA performance. She’s so pretty, but I’ll be damned if she isn’t the most boring performer in the industry right now. I know the song is slow/mid-tempo, but she can do more than strut across the stage. No stage presence whatsoever! I envision the hot choreography someone like Justin Timberlake could do with that song. Think “Cry Me A River”. But again, not an option with RiRi. She can’t dance to save her life, which is unfortunate because it would add another dimension to her act. Oh well.
