Enough already!

I’m sick of people letting politics interfere with award shows, which every rational human being knows are just meaningless cash-grabs disguised as entertainment.

The Grammy’s are the latest example of this nonsense. Leftists are complaining that the results were racist and conservatives are complaining about leftists complaining that the results were racist. Give it a rest, damn it!

Maybe Adele won because her album sold more copies than Beyoncé’s. Maybe she won because the judges liked her music better. Maybe she won because people are sick and tired of fools hailing Beyoncé as some sort of goddess. Frankly, I couldn’t care less; I simply want people to calm down.

If you like a singer’s voice, listen to it. If you like an actor’s performances, watch them. If you have a preferred sports team, don’t demonize its opponents.

Regardless, performers are here to entertain you, not run your lives. Just because a couple of critics think one person is more talented than the one you favor doesn’t mean they are any worse people than you. And performers who make slightly less money and acquired slightly less fame than their counterparts have no right to complain about how terrible their lives are. I have no sympathy for the “plight” of anyone who makes enough money to buy the world twice over.

Alright I’m done ranting. If anyone wants to discuss this, feel free to leave a comment.
