Hello my little lily pads. I am back with another opinnated post, sort of like for For Or Agaianst is, but this is NOT that big of and issue.
The problem? - This X Factor 'x-rated' audition that was on earlier this week.
It is censored, but I suggest you to not watch it if you are faint of heart by nudity.
(I suggest you turn up your computer & YouTube volume if you would like to hear the full audition and what the judges have to say, though I could have gone without the song..)
Basically, explaining the video, the contestant, Geo Godley, (Ironic name right?), wearing a shiny velvet matching shirt and pants, and a tye-dye shirt underneath that, and a lovely ponytail to match performed his very own song, 'I'm A Stud ', which is, you guessed it, about how much of a stud he is. And in the middle of his song, he proceeded to undo his pants and let them fall to the ground (some people say he was wearing a g-string, but I am not sure) and danced around a bit while the judges and crowd were either horrified or laughing.
And eventually, Paula Abdul got so sick by it, she went to a bathroom, and the judges were not taking his singing seriously and even L.A. Reid said, “that was offensive, disgusting, distasteful, upsetting — get him out of the building please!”
And after the man's performance was done, he stated, “I was in key, everything was going well. My pants were down and I was jumping around and all of a sudden the audience turned against me. I don’t know what happened. I thought they’d like it.”
Now the X-Factor's producers are being hit with an FCC complaint for the vulgar performance and people are bothered by what they thought would be a family show, turning out to not be 'appropriate' in the least.
And that producers are the ones who chose to let the performance air on television, let alone be as long as it was, so they are getting hit with that claim of crude displays.
My opinion on the matter that I actually thought it was funny, but its because I didn't see it when it aired on TV, so I suggest that a person who saw that and wasn't aspecting it would have been more shocked than I was.
But it was also very disgusting, though I laughed, I laughed because it was nasty and gross (like if you laugh at stuff on the movie or show Jackass), NOT because I thought he was funny, cool, awesome, or a stud.
Some people are talking about that Paula over-reacted about the whole thing, and talk about how she has been 'around ' too many times to have been offended by a penis, if you catch my drift. And others say it was all staged. But to me, it was just some troll on national American television who had a high self esteem.
So I am asking you guys, what do you deem the performance?
Was it sickening to view, stupid, or hilarious for you?
What do you think about how the producers allowed that performance to happen and that it was aired on prime time television?
