Give Mama Her Props! She Was Right Twice!
This is a blatant bid for a little pat upon my hunchback, but remember when I blogged my predictions for the Tony nominations for Best Actress in a musical? Remember how no one gave a shit? But remember how if you DID read it, you'd see I said most assuredly that the nominees would be Patti LuPone, Keri Butler, Kelli O'Hara, Jenna Russell, and Faith Prince? Well, guess who the nominees turned out to be? Patti LuPone, Keri Butler, Kelli O'Hara, Jenna Russell, and freakin' Faith Prince! Give Mama a Tony for being right!
And then gay lightning struck all over again! Mama blogged that, as an inside source swore to me, Katy Perry's song "I Kissed a Girl" would soar to the top of the hit parade. And last time I looked, that little ditty about drunken same-sex smooching had made it to number five and seemed to be heading to the very top slut, I mean slot! Give Mama a Grammy!
And let's not talk about how I was wrong about everything else.
