Is It Me Or is You Know Who’s Feuds Getting Old?

A President, or any political leader for that matter, has, well, a lot on their plate. The last thing I hope any of them would need or want is unnecessary feuds.

You know is not surprisingly the exception to this rule.

His latest feud is with musician John Legend and his model/television personality/author wife, Chrissy Teigen. This latest feud is due Legend’s appearance on MSNBC during a referendum on criminal justice reform.

Is it me, or am I the only one who is getting tired of these feuds? When he was just another private businessman, he could have these ridiculous public feuds and no one gave a sh*t. But this man is no longer just another private businessman, he is President of the United States. He is responsible to this country and the voters, who like it or not, need him to lead this country.

P.S. I think he has much bigger fish to fry, especially one called Hurricane Dorian.

Songland Review

Getting your big break in the entertainment industry requires luck, hard work and being in the right place at the right time. Or, perhaps auditioning on television for millions of viewers.

Last night, Songland premiered on NBC. The premise of the show is as follows: four unknown songwriters audition with their songs in front of three respected producers/songwriters and one guest musician or band who will record the winning song. Ryan Tedder, Ester Dean and Shane McAnally are the producers/songwriters who provide guidance to the hopefuls. The guest musician last night was John Legend.

After three of the four songs are chosen, the producers will work on the song with the song writers. After the song has been refined, the song writers will then perform the updated song. One song and one songwriter is chosen as the winner.

I really like this show. Unlike other competition reality show where the focus is getting into the entertainment industry, Songland feels authentic. As a viewer I was genuinely rooting for the contestants and on the edge of my seat for the entire episode.

I recommend it.

Songland airs on NBC on Monday nights at 10PM.
