Lionel Richie makes Freudian slip just now on Piers Morgan on CNN
He said "We are watching the tragedy of life...to watch Whitney go the way she did...to watch Michael go the way she did...we are enjoying the entertainment of it rather than the tragedy going on before our eyes."
He referred to Michael as "she?"
lol, I was just thinking of Richie after my friend posted Ms. Ross's "Missing You" on FB. I hated that song, and I realized most of Richie's stuff is gag inducing. Really twee and cornball.
Well, now we know who Piers Morgan's one viewer is.
You mean Piers is actually doing a show where he doesn't have an anti-gay guest on in a desperate attempt to create controversy?
It sounded to me as if he meant that Michael Jackson went the same way she (Whitney Houston) did, via drugs.
He used those exact words, R4. I played it back due to the miracle of DVR.
Met him once-nice guy. But his songs have to be the soppiest EVER.But it's made him a fortune. Just ask ex-wife Brenda,
That could simply mean watching Michael go the way Witney Houson went. Read it again. Don't be so quick to project your thoughts onto what he said.
OP is dumb.
Agree he was referring to Michael going the way Whitney (she) did.
Michael died before Whitney. Technically, she died the way HE did.
Lionel Richie was good when he was doing the funk with the Commodores. It's only when he went pop that he got boring.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
