A Tribute to Hellby Roger Young / 05.09.2009
I often wonder why good Christian folk don’t see the evidence around us. They warn us perpetually of the impending apocalypse and fiery punishments that await, but they do not see that these times are already upon us. What greater punishment for our fornicating could there be than this, found on the computicket site and destined for casinos the country over?
The promo copy reads: “Witness the excitement of Hannah and Miley live on stage with Australian singing sensation Clasina. She brings to the stage an action packed tribute in this singing and dancing extravaganza, performing all the hit songs…. Ultimate Tribute to Hannah & Miley.
HANNAH & MILEY: THE BEST OF BOTH GIRLS SHOW. The New Zealand-born CLASINA is the star of HANNAH & MILEY: THE BEST OF BOTH GIRLS SHOW.”
Yes the idea of a Miley tribute show is a little disturbing, but these things happen. What is even more disturbing is that whoever wrote this description has called Clasina (who appears to hail from Australia and New Zealand simultaneously) a singing sensation. Also please note that “Nineteen-year-old Clasina…has been performing since she was ten”. A quick facebook and google reveals no such singer from either or any country. I did find one Clasina in Holland, but she was a different kind of sensation. Anyway, the point I’m making is simply this: A nineteen year old singing sensation who loves Miley Cyrus but doesn’t have her own FB, oldweb or myspace page? Give me a break. But the wording of the PR is clever. It calls Clasina an “Australian singing sensation”, not then a singing sensation IN Australia but FROM Australia (or New Zealand).
Clasina “said her own adoration for the American star had made the tribute show role an easy one. ‘I love Miley Cyrus,’ she bubbles. ‘Most of the time I’m performing for a young generation and they just love every single song and know all the words. Seeing all the little kids smile is an amazing experience.’” I wonder how the kids feel when they see her bubbling and frothing at the mouth in a way that only the deranged and mentally challenged can? Well, maybe that is a little hard on the girl, because there is one line in the blurb that speaks the truth: “This has to be the next best thing to the real show.”
