That is a great face Kenny Chesney’s making as he holds up his entertainer of the year award from the Academy of Country. His squinty visage is expressing his distaste for the way the award was selected this year. In the past, winners of the trophy were selected by ACM members, but this year, the voting was handed over to the fans, which Chesney thought was a big mistake.
Chesney claims the selection process has become “a sweepstakes to see who can push people’s buttons the hardest on the Internet.” Meanwhile, I would personally be hard-pressed to care about winning an award as long as I was selling albums. But then again, I like counting money more than trophies.
Meanwhile, who the hell does Criss Angel think he is? He look like he’s creating his professional wrestling persona by getting dressed in Madonna’s old duds from the “Me Against the Music” music video and has adorned himself in some heinous jewelry he picked up from one of those carts in the mall. Also, does he shave his arms? Sigh. Can someone please saw him in half?
