It is not as crazy as it would seem. Queen was always a pop band with a penchant for the grandiose, I mean come on Bohemian Rhapsody. If these guys want to get out and dust the old songs off live who else would they get? Freddie had crazy range and a theatrical stage presence. This move connects Queen to a whole new generation and end up selling a few more million records.
This kind of like saying someone ripped off a song because it has the same chord structure. How many ideas are there that haven’t been done in some form or fashion. Highly unlikely that KOL had even seen the shirt.. Wonder which camp is making a story out of nothing at all, in order to generate a little hype.
What remarkable insight, please enlighten us more with on point observations and witty banter.
This is perfect for her career. Who go on to Saturday Night Live and just blows you away. Hardly ever happens. This is generating tons of press and people who have never heard of her are seeing these articles on sites like Buzzfeed and checking her out now. The people who liked her before will still like her and now even more people have heard of her.
You can tell she is nervous because she keeps grabbing her chest in an attempt to release the tightness which is probably due to nerves. I didn’t hear anything “cringeworthy” here and to call it a bomb is a bit of an overstatement, it just didn’t really do anything that would bring in new fans. I think about it this way, you’ve got a major album coming out, it is much better press to say that she bombed because now people want to see what was so horrible about the performance, then go back to the original so you can compare it. It seems like there taking the adage that there is no such thing as bad press and turning something that was just alright and portraying it as a train wreck. Well played.
