I have to admit… My face went through the 3 stages of the Smith family while watching the performance. I’m over Miley, it’s like she’s trying so hard to separate herself from Hannah Montana that she’s being outrageous just to prove that’s not her.
I’m also over Lady GaGa, I LOVED her when she first came out, but by Born This Way (the Album not the song) I just got tired of all the antics. I still love SOME of her songs, but I’m not nearly as excited by her music as I was… Fame and Fame Monster to me are her best work (with Born This Way – song added in)
I fully believe in self-expression and embracing an artistic element. But sometimes (case in point Miley’s performance) they actually push the audience away from them as an artist because you wonder if they are going through a crisis.
I wanted to like Miley’s song (and I don’t really), I wanted to like Lady GaGa’s new song (and I didn’t although I wasn’t too weird-ed out by her performance, and could appreciate the artistic part of it), but I did enjoy JT and Katy Perry (and I am obsessed with her new song).
That’s my 2 cents (more like 10… my apologies!!!)

I applaud Kelly for this song, I love how open and raw it is and how its something that can resonate with people in abusive relationships… As artistic and intense as the video is, part of me still wishes the video had ended with a smug Jay-Z (Jay Z… whatever) holding a missing persons poster of the dude.

Can I just say she looks so much more like 2000 Britney in the face than her other recent videos… she actually looks happy!!! Maybe it’s because her boys and niece are in the video but she looks like is really enjoying herself!!

This is incredibly sad, unfortunately there is way to many factors that could have come to play. The nurse may have been from a culture where if you bring shame you are forced to end your own life, or any number of belief systems that require self-sacrifice for redemption. And I can understand the shame she felt especially where today’s world is so small, and there is so little privacy.
I do however, think Adam is way off on saying the monarchy is to blame. I am a commonwealth citizen and have great respect for tradition, just because it is something that is not done where you are from, does not mean there is something inherently wrong with it.
The US media treats overpaid actors and singers about the same as the UK media treats the royals. If it had been a nurse at the hospital where Beyonce had her baby, would people blame the media, the nurse or Beyonce.
No one is to blame, and I think all we can do is wish the family of the nurse our condolences and hope nothing like this happens again.

I’m sorry but blond Chris Brown scares me, and then when he behaves like he did, and give this extremely non-sincere response to his actions, it makes me wonder what will happen to him (and what he will do) in the future.
