The 2012 London Olympics Closing Ceremonies – Brittani’s Thoughts

 

It’s going to be another 4 years before we have to be annoyed at the way NBC chooses to cover the games. The London Olympics went out with a bigger bang than the opening ceremony came in with, at least there wasn’t any of Matt Lauer and Meredith Vieira‘s inane commentary. Oh wait, we got it from Bob Costas and Ryan Seacrest. Sigh, anyways.

 

While some thought it was a bit lackluster, I enjoyed most of it, but also felt like some things didn’t quite flow right. Maybe we can blame that on NBC too, they cut out Kate Bush‘s part of the show, but did show Emeli Sande who kicked things off with a cover of “Read All About It” with the stage covered in newspaper. We also didn’t get to see Muse over here in the states either. If they performed their new hot mess of a song, I don’t think it was much of a loss.

One Direction

The closing ceremony also featured British boy bands Take That and One Direction hitting the Union Jack shaped stage.

George Michael!
Annie Lennox is SO Fierce

George Michael performing his hit ‘Freedom ’90’ and Annie Lennox who had one of the more elaborate setups.

The Who — My G-g-generation

The Who‘s Pete Townsend and Roger Daltrey did a medley of their hits…

Kaiser Chiefs!

…with Kaiser Chiefs covering “Pinball Wizard” coming in on the back of scooters.

The Girls having fun backstage!

Then “Tell me whatcha want–whatcha really really want!!

The Spice Girls onstage…briefly, before hopping on top of their taxis…

Artists riding on the back of moving vehicles seemed to be the only theme of the event, with the Spice Girls riding around the stadium on cabs designed to fit their individual personalities. It was what everyone was waiting to see and they did not disappoint.

That. DRESS. VB does it again!

We were particularly fond of Victoria Beckham‘s black Giles Deacon dress.

Another highlight for me was the parade of models after the David Bowie tribute. We know David couldn’t be bothered to show up because he was somewhere being fabulous with Iman, but the graphics in the stadium were amazing to watch. Britain’s most famous supermodels arrived in trucks baring their images, shot by famed photographer Nick Knight.

The World Is a Catwalk, apparently!

Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, Jourdan Dunn and the only male among the group, David Gandy stomped to Bowie’sFashion” decked out in British designers like Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood’s Gold Label, Paul Smith, Burberry, Stella McCartney and of course, Victoria Beckham. (Was the “nod” part of her agreeing to participate in the reunion? Hmmmm.)  Mick and Jerry’s daughter, Georgia May Jagger stunned us in a short, gold VB dress.

It was a great night for us 90s kids, who didn’t sing along to “Wonderwall” performed not by Oasis but Liam Gallagher‘s new band, Beady Eye?? I did see  a couple of complaints  on Twitter about Jessie J dominating the last part of the show; she did at least three songs. I might get stoned for saying I actually enjoyed Jessie, Taio Cruz and Tinie Tempah doing the Bee Gees‘ “You Should Be Dancing.” It was her singing with Queen that really seemed to piss people off.

Freddie

Jessie’s not Freddie, no one will ever be Freddie, and as much as I do like Jessie, the performance of “We Will Rock You” would have been more than fine with just a video of Mr. Mercury and Brian May and the rest of the band playing along.

As with every closing ceremony, the next host city for the Olympics gives us a taste of what’s to come. Rio de Janeiro put on a hell of a show featuring model Alessandra Ambrosio samba dancing with soccer star Pele and an interesting street cleaner.

Although, it would have been great to have the next Olympics in Chicago because you know Kanye would rock–we look forward to the 2016 Games in Rio and more sexy athletes!

Liam Gallagher Sues Brother Noel – aka Oasis Baby Cage Fighting

"'E 'IT MAAAY! Knowot'maayne?"

I’ve squealed with laughter over Oasis’s Gallagher bruvahs since the early 90’s, like any mother with two boys does. (Oh. Is it just me? Figures.)  I still love Oasis…just sayin’.

Liam...

ANYbitch.  Seems now that Liam is actually suing Noel for saying mean things about him two bloody years ago. 

via TheSun.uk.com:

I HAVE taken legal action against Noel Gallagher for statements he made claiming Oasis pulled out of the 2009 V Festival Chelmsford gig because I had a hangover.

That is a lie and I want Oasis fans and others who were at V to know the truth.

I was gutted when I couldn’t play the gig because I didn’t want to let the fans down.

But the truth is I had laryngitis, which Noel was made fully aware of that morning, diagnosed by a doctor.

Noel also falsely stated the demise of Oasis followed a massive row in which he claimed I demanded to advertise my clothing range Pretty Green in the Oasis tour programme.

The truth is there was no such discussion or row between us.

I am used to being called all sorts of things by Noel and I have in the past said things about him. But what Noel has alleged this time went way beyond rock-and-roll banter and questioned my professionalism.

I tried to resolve this amicably but have been left with no choice but legal action. All I want is an apology.

Seriously, that’s funny.  (As an aside, IT’S ONLY FUNNY WHEN THEY AREN’T YOUR ADULT SONS.)  Still, though. I’m belly-laughing at these giant toddlers.

"Aaahrrrr...aaahrrr....SNORT...aaahrrr!" Little Fighty Dogs - Noel and Liam

What about the gossip that Liam insinuated that Noel wasn’t the daddy of his baby while the two bickered backstage at the 2009 V Festival? Man, that wasn’t cool.

Older Bruv, Noel...

I smell a counter-lawsuit–and it smells like warm beer and a two-finger salute.

 

Reading Festival 2011 Line-up!

 

Eeeek!  This is exciting!  So, which of my UK readers are going to the Reading Fest and review it for me?  C’mon!  I am especially interested in Beady Eye, because Liam Gallagher is such a butthole.  I love him, but he’s still a crabby butthole.
