Don’t you love the music award shows? There’s so many of them now, but often, the winner will come to the stage, and either at the beginning or the end of their speech, thank God “for making this all possible” or “for giving me this gift” (their voice). Similar discussions arise during celebrity interviews.
But oh how often we misuse our gifts. We know that our blessings, gifts, and talents come from the Creator, but we misrepresent him by the things we choose to do with our gifts and talents.
Is the Music World Going to Hell in a Handbasket?
I used to know everything about music videos when I was growing up. I loved them (see this post). But as I’ve settled into my 30s, I’ve really slacked off and haven’t kept up with videos. I’ll glance at BET or check online every now and then if I hear buzz about a video, but I won’t sit and watch them for hours and learn the choreography (if there is any) like I used to.
So one day I’m on Twitter and several people post a link for “the moment you’ve been waiting for—the world premiere of Lady Gaga and Beyonce in Telephone”!
Huh? I wasn’t aware that they had another song together.
