Yup, looks like today is the annual post-Superbowl come-down day here on PopBytes, and I couldn’t be more ambivalent about a sport that isn’t even named right (Football? I see no feet or balls. Maybe if they called it Handegg … ) Anyway, the big story, other than the Packers winning which is great if you support teams that don’t feature a sexual predator, is that Christina Aguilera continued to dig her own grave by flubbing the lyrics to the national anthem.
Christina Aguilera has spoken out about her major mistake singing the national anthem at the Super Bowl. In a statement to the AP after the performance, Aguilera said, “I got so lost in the moment of the song that I lost my place. I can only hope that everyone could feel my love for this country and that the true spirit of its anthem still came through.” SOURCE
How the hell do you forget the lyrics to the national anthem? Even I know them, and I was raised in Quebec! In all fairness, it’s hard for Christina to pay attention to anything not covered in chocolate.
Christina’s Son: Mommy, can we go to the playground today?
Christina: Not now baby, Mommy needs a nap.
Christina’s Son: (*Sprays whipped cream on her head*) How about now?
Christina: LEAD THE WAY, DESSERT!
