March 30: Thumbs up/ Thumbs down

I haven't done one of these in a while, so it's time to get back at it.

THUMBS UP:
The Dixie Chicks. They're going out on tour with the Eagles. The recent news that Martie and Emily were starting a side project called Courtyard Hounds led some to wonder if the Chicks' days were numbered, but this tour proves they are still going strong.

Erykah Badu. She's just released a video for "Window Seat" in which she walks through town and removes all her clothes. Her clip was inspired by Matt & Kim's award-winning "Lessons Learned" video. But Badu, like Matt & Kim (and Alanis, years ago), is shown with the naughty bits blurred. Which musician will be the first to bare all without the blurring? The world waits...

THUMBS DOWN:
Ricky Martin
. I know I'm in the minority here but I see no reason to celebrate his coming out. He's 38 friggin' years old. What took him so long? Why do celebrities have these delusional paranoid fears that coming out will hurt their careers? When Clay Aiken beats you to the punch, you're pretty pathetic. I can't think of a single celeb that has come out as gay and seen his or her career suffer as a result. Anyone?

Good call, I'd forgotten about that one!

I read Badu performed this strip down where JFK was killed. And then laid down in proximity where he was shot. I didn't get the point. I am sure its publicity.

Yeah, that is odd. I wonder what statement she was trying to make.
