Hack vs Pro

I don’t usually comment on the doings of the so-called entertainers we are assaulted with these days, but I can’t help but observe that it’s this sort of thing that really shows the difference between a pretty hack and a real professional.

Former Dallas resident Jessica Simpson was in tears last night after freezing during a song she was performing during the Kennedy Center Honors.

Simpson was on stage to sing Nine to Five as part of the tribute to Dolly Parton, one of the evening’s five honorees. Simpson ended her performance abrupty with the words “so nervous” and ran off the stage. The audience remained silent, giving her no applause.

Simpson appeared to be crying when she and other singers in the tribute returned to the stage.

I would suggest to Ms. Simpson that there exist these things called “practice” and “rehearsal.”  I know those sound weird, but they’re intended to alleviate this very problem.  She would do well to avail herself of them before she faces her next public humiliation.

Proper Preparation Prevents Piss-Poor Performance.
