Lionel Richie is a pop god so shut up


Okay, this is going to come across as a bit angry. And it is. But all of you making fun of Lionel Richie should just shut it.

Reasons to like and respect Lionel Richie:
- The Commodores rocked out loud. I challenge anyone to not listen to a Commodores CD and not be dancing within 2 songs. I mean just the video of "Lady" alone elevates Lionel Richie to Mozart status. What is not to like about men wearing knee high socks, tight soccer shorts and big afros.
- Hey, let's see someone else write 200 top 10 hits.
- Dancing on the Ceiling is just plain old fun
- He did a video with a blind woman making pottery. Well sure I wouldn't want to drink anything out of whatever she was making, but it was still a first in music history.
- Say You, Say Me. Say it together. Words to live by.

I could go on and on. All you people mocking Lionel Richie (and that includes you pompous jerks at VH1 and MTV making fun of Lionel. Hey, I got a note for you zipper heads, if you are now a talking head on VH1 you are past your prime and people are actually mocking you. So shut up), you should all just sit back and shhhhhhhh.

The only bad thing about Lionel is that he raised a daughter that was on a show with Paris Hilton. Nicole, stop ruining your father's good name.

To quote a character from "Rescue Me:"

"Rock bottom-- it doesn't exist for you, does it?"

"Dancing on the Ceiling" is definitely a memorable song. It makes me laugh uncontrollably. But I fear - sir Optimist - not in the way that you would appreciate. It's more of VH1-like snicker. Really, you can get anymore inane than this song.

I fear I agree with Tom...how can you respect a man who makes a video about a blind woman doing pottery and the end result is a head that looks nothing like Lionel Richie but instead a really warped version of Tito from the Jackson Five. Sorry dude!
