For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. ~ Romans 1:21, ESV
Are you kidding me??? Why was this ok? When is it ever a good idea to disrespect your spouse on national TV? Sonny&Cher tried it that ended in divorce, Ike and Tina Turner tried it, look what happened there. Also, why don’t these two people have a clue? How hard is it to think that through? And what about their children, is that something their kids should be proud of, years from now, when they are adults looking back at their parents careers? Or after their parents are divorced because of a lack of respect for each other? I just don’t get it? These were the things I was thinking as soon as I saw her silhouette on the Grammy’s. And then, when her husband came out, I just sighed and shook my head, sadly. I could only stand to watch for 5 minutes before I turned the show off for good and didn’t watch anymore of it. Since it started so horribly, I said, “it probably will only get worse, so I’m done.”
So, this is what we’ve come too, it was so embarrassing to see that, and I felt sorry for that couple who for whatever reason felt it necessary to show the lack of honor and respect for one another, and their family, or the institution of marriage. I really do think people are selling their souls for fame and fortune. It is truly one thing to see a young woman who is unmarried, shake around, touch herself, cladly dressed, and stick her tongue out at the audience, but it is certainly another, to see a married couple parade around with the wife looking like a stripper, and the husband, showing her off to all those people like she was an exhibit, and being proud of it.
A lot of people will say this was just them being provocative, but I say NO, this was just poor taste, bad judgement, and selfish. This was as bad as Janet Jackson, and Justin Timberlake, at the super bowl 10 years ago. This was about celebrities, getting too big for their britches until they have no moral compass anymore, and think everything is about the next shock value regardless of who it hurts, influences, or shames. All of these people have family, who will have to live with the aftermath of their tasteless performance. I know this is all nothing new, but it’s also nothing I ever want to see again. Which is why I don’t watch TV very much, these days. The funniest thing about this post is, I haven’t watched the Grammy’s in years, and decided to give it a chance, and sadly saw that disaster before my eyes. Shazza ~ Musings&Rants
