I Should Clarify Something

In regards to my last post:

I love Cee Lo Green and I love the original song. And I love muppets, so much that I actually own a muppet of myself. And I have nothing against Gwyneth Paltrow, except that her name is hard to spell and her newsletter is silly.

But that performance, which mashes Cee Lo in crazy body armour (with feathers!) while muppets sing backup and Gwynnie (admirably) prances around in, like, four foot high heels, is unjustifiably insane. Why did these things get mashed together? Whose idea was it? I’m still not even sure why there’s a censored version of that song. (Remember, Forget You” actually was released as a radio edit before the whole Glee thing blew up. I don’t really know why. It was massively popular the first day it was released. I listened to it like 40 times in a row. I think we could’ve lived with only hearing it on YouTube or satellite radio or something.) 

When you take all these things which I really like (/don’t really mind or care about), and mash them together, you get some crazy-ass performance that I don’t really understand. 

Also in the interest of full disclosure, I did not watch the Grammys. That may very well have been the highlight of the show.
