Still (about 4) white girls that can sing..wonders never cease!!!
Mabe, just mabe the reason that you did not get all of the “belting” is because ( 1) you are too young to remember Janis Joplin-because all she did belt out a song, and anything less then a belting would not have been a tribute to her at all ( 2) you’re a cho-van-est pig and or homophobic or (3) you are the typical white boy that dosen’t get it when it comes to SOUL!! I think it may have been a little much for you - stick to the (straight, married, black-eye-lined (foreign-boys) with money, & fake fire for your excitement!! 5 boy bands ugh! The Beatles are as dead, or deader than Joplin-even when they were all still breathing. And you’re married?
I’ve never heard such a moving, soulfull, heartwrenching, rendection of a song * from 2 white, girls-bar, none! Thank god there are still a capable few. When it comes to loud, emotional, belting nobody tops these two. (snap). stick to Britney Spears!!!! Or Jessica Simpson!! Let them bore you to an early death. Give me Ethridge & Stone-no punk females with talent. When I want to see Barbie I’ll travel to Toy’s R Us, not the Grammy’s. p.s. How is Dick Clark?
“Mabe” Janet didn’t realize that by “belting one out” I meant they really had their soul in it, just like good ol’ Janice did. Seriously, some people shouldn’t drink and surf.
