On a less important battlefield, Saturday Night Live seems to be up to its tawdry old tricks. The show’s latest musical guest, EMINEM, looked like he was flat-out lip-synching his first song, and during the second one, his mouth didn’t always match the “vocals” we were hearing. Best case scenario: He was performing along to a backup track. Well, I suggest that the cast members lip-synch some old comedy sketches from Your Show of Shows or The Ben Stiller Show; that could only be better than the increasingly lame stuff they are doing. (HORATIO SANZ padded and making feeble fat jokes? Oy.) And how could they have included so many dissy references to ASHLEE SIMPSON? Aren’t they the ones who gleefully enabled the lip-synching phenom and who screwed it up for Ashlee by playing the wrong tape? Awkward jig. Exit columnist.
And here’s the lastest latest news on the fiasco, from eonline, for those who still have the need to lick the pop culture bowl clean. Seems the drummer did it.
