A Valentine’s Day Comedy Special

If you watch a lot of stand up and comedy shows on Netflix, you probably got a notification about “Michael Bolton’s Big, Sexy Valentine’s Day Special.” Since I had no other plans, I decided to watch it (also because I saw Fred Armisen on one of the thumbnails). I had no idea what to expect because I don’t really know much about Bolton. I do love a random Netflix comedy special that didn’t have a lot of publicity leading up to¬†it!

It was weird, dirty, and original. It was great. Scott Aukerman (“Comedy Bang Bang”) and Akiva Schaffer (The Lonely Island) co-directed the special with an all-star cast. Andy Samberg, Sarah Silverman, Maya Rudolph, and Will Forte are just a few of the comedians who appear in the show. There is singing, dancing, sketches, and weird romance (and maybe even an appearance from Santa Clause). I don’t want to give too much away so I’m going to stop. But if you don’t like SNL, then you’re probably going to hate Michael Bolton’s special, so don’t watch it. If you DO Like SNL and you wouldn’t mind if it even went a step further, then why are you still reading this? GO WATCH!

Lady Gaga’s Super Bowl Performance¬†

(Though this is a bit late and most people are now talking about her outfit on the red carpet at the Grammy’s yesterday, I wanted to share this)

Lady Gaga’s performance of the National Anthem was incredible. She has such a powerful and beautiful voice is that truly was moving. The fact that most people immediately started talking about and mocking her glittery red eyeshadow and hairstyle really shows that whatever is on the outside is what counts (unfortunately) for many. Focusing on and criticizing something so trivial such as her outfit choice when she is passionately singing the Star Spangled Banner is immature. I thought her outfit and overall appearance was classy and really suited her.
