Love It or Loathe It?

The Black Eyed Peas
(After sitting through The Superbowl half-time show, 
we couldn't spend one more second looking at the actual group.)

I got a feeling...that our souls are rocking back and forth in the fetal position.

We know this post is called "Love It or Loathe It?" and that it's supposed to give the public an opportunity to weigh in on a topic while assuming a level of objectivity ourselves. But it's our blog and we can do whatever we like. And so...we loathe it.

Why, you ask? Is it the incessant vocoder abuse? Is it the sexy-football-players-from-the-future costumes? Is it the fact that the men in the group simply speak on pitch like Rex Harrison in My Fair Lady while Stacy Ferguson does her best Joss Stone meets Cher impression on the side?* Is it because they seem to know that they are the four luckiest son of a guns in the universe and that we can sense them counting their money in their heads during the performance? Is it choosing to rhyme "up" with "up" or "like oh my god" with "let's get off" or "just take it off" with "mazel tov" because those aren't even imperfect rhymes, they're just...a series of words?

We don't wanna loathe. But there are strong feelings. Maybe someone can explain the appeal. Maybe.

*We've been watching Ms. Ferguson since she was on Kids Incorporated (although Martika was our favorite) and believe that she is a very talented lady. She must be very good friends with these other Peas and have a good time performing with them (read: $). Good for her.
