Watching the Grammies last night, I was struck by one of the main differences between artists from US + the rest of the world….
In the thank you speeches almost every singe US artist thanked god. And if the artist was from somewhere else, there was no god included in the thanks.
Now, I don’t mean to be controvertial, (or maybe I do) but I’d much rather a drunken Amy Winehouse making me laugh with ”dis is for London!” than to hear another 30 people thank god for allowing a Grammy win. And they’re always so serious about it – like they have to prove their faith to the world.
I think it’s a tad hypocritical when you get all these rap artists singing about their hoes and bitches and homies and treating people like shit – and then go & thank god for winning an award or getting a record in the charts. As if any (sane) deity would permit fostering such horrendous morals.
anyway – rant ends.
