corny people think alike by definition
Any boojee condescending remarks you can make about the Apollo or its crowd is just evidence of your corniness. So you are excluded. If your latin terms help make you feel cooler, I fully understand.
Why condescending? Doing things in crowds implies sheep like behaviour. One does it, the rest simply follow.
Damn I'm getting picked on, it's like high school all over again.
The booing wasn't done stupidly. Lauryn would tell you herself she's an average singer ...and average doesn't cut it at the Apollo. That's why it's so renowned.
Lauryn became a star becuz she's a great song-writer.
Tradition is still no excuse to boo a 13 year old girl. This type of thing can make or break her career over something so stupid as continuing tradition. It makes me wonder what type of other stupid things people will do simply because it's tradition.
MMMMM that girl is soooooooo hot.
I didn't read any of the text.
That little girl went up there fully aware of the risks. Cowardly bleeding-hearts like you would never cut it.
What does criticizing blind tradition have to do with being a coward? You're sounding awfully tough for someone standing on a soapbox on their own island.
I could only imagine an interview after this sort of thing.
Interviewer: Why did you boo that poor 13 year old girl?
Crowd person: It's tradition, it's what we always do.
Interviewer: But it's a 13 year old girl. Do you realize what an entire crowd of boo's can do to a young person?
Crowd person: It's tradition man. I just do what I do. It's what my pops did, and what his pops did, and it's what we do man. I just do it.
Interviewer: So if your tradition was to walk off of a cliff, would you do it?
Crowd person: Tradition is tradition man, so yeah. If we always did it, I'm a continue doing it. Tradition is tradition.
Looks like logic got sent back about 20 years.
Looks like you're still talking to yourself homeboy. I don't think that you can convince anyone that under any circumstances it's ok to boo a little kid like that on such a big stage. Even Simon Cowell would be like "Dude that's harsh"
It's not necessary to convince ignorant people who'll never set foot in the Apollo.
Fact remains that it's every performer's dream to perform their, and most have.
lol you're the only one in this entire thread with your opinion and you call everyone else ignorant.
If you're arguing with everyone else in the thread....hmmm...maybe it's you. You seem to be the common factor in all of the disagreements.
Btw nice "there, their, they're" fail.
I need to find a smiley closing its eyes and ears and yelling "na na na na I'm right, I can't hear you, na na na na na"
So I'm supposed to listen to 4 dorks on the net who know nothing about the Apollo?
You see one video and think you can offer an informed opinion?
I'm the only one who knows what he's talking about, unfortunately. Go read the wiki page or something, Something.
You're what's wrong with this country. You see many people with a differing opinion and you feel insulted and attacked, so you have to act like a jerk on the internet by putting everyone else down, instead of focusing on the REAL issue which is why you have such stupid opinions to begin with.
Go read the Wiki page. You're looking for "The Apollo Theater" in New York.
It's a national landmark, and you want to criticize its traditions. The ignorance. You are what's wrong with your country.
