I knew it must be bad when the pop stations in New York City were chattering about Faith Hill being a sore loser at the CMA’s. CMT has even written a remarkably serious news story about the controversy. Am I the only one who could tell she was kidding? I laughed my ass off when she did her obviously tongue-in-cheek diva reaction to not winning. She’s going out of her way to play to the camera:
The idea that Faith, who has lost far more at the CMA’s than she’s won, would suddenly be sensitive to not winning this year, and have such an over-the-top reaction to losing, is beyond ridiculous. Part of the problem is that the camera moved away quickly, so the audience couldn’t see any follow-up, but she is clearly laughing and then putting on a performance for the camera. There must be something better to talk about post-CMA than this inflated controversy. Perhaps the dire need for a balancing out of the BMG vote?
Update (4:50 pm): Faith has responded to the silly controversy.
