I know you're a false-flagging American trying to stir shit up because tv in every country in Europe and Latin America has half of their airtime dedicated to stuff that makes your webm look like church
>Celebrity desperation for public approval has reached its peak. The proof: Spike TV’s “Lip Sync Battle.”
>When Hathaway’s video hit the Internet on Monday, it came with with many assertions that this video would be the best thing you’ve ever seen. But for those of us who have grown awfully tired of Jimmy Fallon’s celebrity game schtick, it was just another cause to cringe. Please, make this thing stop.
>Sure, celebrities should obviously have a chance to let the public see their more casual side: It’s the way they connect with fans. But the problem with “Lip Sync Battle” is that by staging these elaborate lip-sync sets, it takes all the fun away. The best part about an impromptu karaoke challenge should be the surprise factor. But when John Krasinski strips down to a dress and Anna Kendrick brings out Jennifer Lopez to help a performance, it’s just too staged to be anything but a desperate bid for your attention and love.
>“Look! I’m cool! Like me!” is the unspoken message that we get from the latest celebrities on the show, who naturally have movies to promote (The Rock) or images to repair (Hathaway). And they’re getting rave reviews. But our first thought seeing The Rock’s routine was “Ugh, he’s just trying to get a tweet from Taylor Swift.” With 54 million followers, a Swift tweet is a very powerful thing. And of course, the pop star soon retweeted a link to his performance.
>tfw my normie friends watch this shit and I have to pretend to like it or they think I'm having a bad time or depressed I seriously don't get the appeal, this and Dancing With The Star is the television equivalent of watching paint dry.
