Kanye's Glow in the Dark

After watching many of his live concert videos on Youtube and MTV, I've to say Kanye's performance last night was just a notch below my grand expectations of him. Granted the lightings and special effects were very very impressive but the gig felt like a scripted show. A very well-scripted show I have to say but it lacked a certain discerning quality.

Yes he was energetic. Prancing around the stage, singing with full emotion but he somehow felt very detached from the audience; having almost no interaction with the audience. Having spent $188 on their ticket to experience, I assume, a once-in-a-lifetime show, the audience deserved more respect than that and I've not even included the fact that he was late for an hour and a half.

Not to take away some of the other aspects of the concert, his band and back-up singers were excellent. Yes, as excellent as the special effects which gave NDP a run for its money.

Pictures are over here! And here's a video of his entrance:

The Celebrity Apprentice

I am so fricking hooked to The Celebrity Apprentice. Not all these contestants are household names in Singapore especially the notorious Omarosa. Calling her a celebrity would be naming the term loosely. She's a vile witch who was from the previous season (s?) of the show and she's been said to be like a cockroach who can survive the harshest of nuclear winters.

There's also Gene Simmons who is a genius in every sense of the word. There are some like country singer Trace Adkins who a breath of fresh air with the level of integrity they uphold despite the unpleasantries surrounding them within the show. One without such integrity (read: hypocrite of the decade) would be Stephen Baldwin, one of the many Baldwins I never knew existed. Cunning little mofo he is.

Look out for hotties Tiffany Fallon and Ivanka Trump. Mmm Ivanka.
