I'll admit it. I've been following the reports and pictures that have been coming out of the UK regarding James' concerts. There have been some nice ones, and it's always good to hear that people are enjoying themselves.
But...then I saw the pictures from the Friday night. In the black pimp shirt (the one he wore at Halloween that was open to his navel) and all the bling bling, and I just...couldn't look any more.
To make it worse, I listened to the songs on the CD, courtesy of the splendiferous sweet_ali. And you know, if I wasn't getting the CD as part of his concerts this summer, I wouldn't buy it. There's probably two songs on the whole thing that I can listen to without wincing. I'm afraid that I just don't get all these glowing reports I keep seeing about it.
*hangs head in shame*
I am a bad James fan. I *want* to like the look and the music, I really do. And I still think James is incredibly attractive. But the whole bling bling thing...was the man wearing *every* necklace he owns on Friday? And don't get me started on that blues song everybody has been gushing about. It's *got* to be something about the performance, because the recording...Craig was giggling as badly as I was while we listened to it.
Of course, this is all just my silly opinion. I fully respect everyone who loves either the album or the navel shirt. I just...don't care for these particular aspects of James.
