December 30, 2008--Kennedy Center Honors Streisand
If anyone deserves a Kennedy Center Honor, it's Barbra Streisand. Her impressive recording career coupled with her success as an actress really and truly stand out. She is one in a million. That said, I found the actual award ceremony to be a huge letdown. Barbra's music was represented by Idina Menzel, Beyonce, and Ne-Yo. Beyonce is beautiful and a competent singer; however, her interpretation of The Way We Were just didn't have the magic of Barbra's. Ne-Yo's Lover Where Can You Be was cute if silly. But what was with Idina Menzel? What a dreadful rendition of Don't Rain On My Parade! EEEEK! Between squeeks and strains it was a miracle she got through the last note. I didn't catch the name of the singers who did Somewhere, and they should be glad or they would see their names in big, bright letters here saying what a skanky job they did. And Mr. President, couldn't you have stayed home? Wasn't there some emergency to tend to somewhere? Finally, I never had heard Caroline Kennedy speak and hope to never hear her again. For a Kennedy, she sure lacks charisma. She better be glad she has that name or we'd never hear from her again. Well, enough about politics. Barbra, Congratulations on your award. No matter what anyone says (including me), no one deserves it more than you.

Oh my Lord Louis - you said something NICE about Barbra Streisand!!!!!! The tribute SUCKED - and was indeed subpar and a friggin joke. The Kennedy Center should be ashamed of themselves.2009-01-02 23:14:45 GMT
But - We finally agree - and "you're the top" in my book -
No one tops the real deal - Ms. Barbra Joan Streisand
P.S. - her facial expressions were fu**ing priceless!!!!!!
I mean, heck even Celine Dion could have done a better job with DROMP.

Louis - did you see that Mariah Carey has a new DVD out called "The Adventures of Mimi"? Don't you think Barbra should release one called "The Adventures of Angelina Scarengella"? I'd buy it.2009-01-12 00:05:03 GMT
