Even the French Hate Fergie

25 Jan

Was pleasantly surprised to see this little tidbit in the news yesterday:

The Black Eyed Peas were the victims of a blunder at France’s top music awards, where they were mistakenly named best international group.

It was either this or shots of The Mona Lisa..

It seems that even the French hate the Black Eyed Peas, first by mistakenly calling them up, and then by revealing that the voters really selected a German group instead, Tokio Hotel (who was booed when the mistake was corrected).  Apparently Vichy France is still going strong.  It’s not even like there was some “academy” behind the selection to screw them, because winners were voted for by listeners of NRJ, a major French radio station.  Basically the French nation screwed the BEP, probably while moping and smoking cigarettes.  If it’s some consolation, they did win best international song though for their shitty pop ditty “I Gotta Feeling,” which owned the club scene all summer.

These NRJ awards seemed quasi-legit, some big groups got recognized, our friend Ke$ha being one of them.  I found myself hoping there was some new Daft or Tellier coming out this year so that we can pull the plug on BEP again, only to give the award to someone with more original music.

Oh, here are the performances from France…we do like to leave you with music here at YDP.

Bonus (Real International Winner, you don’t need to know French to understand the Boos):
