Not really. But, he should.
There is news today that no agreement is likely between the WGA and the show’s producers. The WGA hasn’t announced plans to picket the Grammys, but some musicians are already considering a boycott. It’s a list that includes Justin Timberlake, Jon Bon Jovi, Prince, Tim McGraw, Kelly Clarkson, The White Stripes, and a who’s-who of others.
I haven’t heard if Kanye West is staying home on Feb. 10. He does stand to be cheated out of have 8 awards during the live broadcast on CBS. A trip to Kanye’s Blog only reveals that he likes shoes, phones, and the new Macbook Air. I wonder if George Bush likes Mac people.
I think we should swallow our pride and face reality. Award season is a bust. It’s like knowing your favorite football team is a big, steaming pile of crap, but you have to play all the games anyway. So, why not mix it up, and have some fun with it?
Billy Bush, hosting the Grammys. Billy Bush, hosting the Oscars. Billy Bush, hosting the Republican National Convention. We could start MulletWatch, and track the growth of Billy’s hair. We can play the Billy Bush Drinking Game, with shots of Bushmills every time he says “I.” Imagine, the insightful critiques of the nominated musicians, actors, and Presidential candidates that Billy thinks should have won!
Live from the Staples Center in Downtown Los Angeles… Heeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrr’s Billy!
