Not only is Whitney a much more talented singer, but she also actually took the effort to learn the words to the National Anthem before going on television before millions of viewers. To top it off, I think Whitney is a class act (exceedingly poor taste in men notwithstanding), unlike the skankoriffic Christina Aguilera, whose "apology" on Twitter for butchering the National Anthem consisted of:
Acapella, (LIVE) with no orchestra,..millions of people watching!! Like @nickiminaj said..."Haters you can kill yourself"! HA! #superbowlWow. Such class. I think I'm in love. As Bob Parks notes:
The old school way: apologize and let things die down. Americans are very forgiving.At least Roseanne got the words right (don't follow this link if you have a weak stomach) when she squealed it for a Padres game in 1990. It's pretty bad when you make Roseanne Barr look good.
The new skool way: Tell people to die after you make excuses for your screw up.
And yes, I still have a little bit of a crush on Whitney Houston.
