Tour for The Voice gets cancelled, unsurprisingly

REMEMBER The Voice? Do you remember the winner? Did you even hear the song? Chances are, the only thing you had to do with The Voice, was continual puzzlement at people on social networking, saying they fancied Will.I.Am. That’s right. There’s people out there who want to have sex with someone who looks like a Lego Tron figurine, complete with simpleton grin.

Of course, The Voice was the latest show to proudly proclaim that It Wasn’t The X Factor, which is a dangerous dance. That’s because The X Factor has a habit of being much better than competitors because it knows full well that it is little more than trashy television.

TERRIBLE news. Just when you thought it was safe to leave the house again (unless you live in Syria or you’re an Iraqi emo), devastating newsbombs are dropped in your path. And it falls on us to deliver such savage and depressing news.

Celine Dion is on the road to recovery and is expected to be singing again by the end of April after a viral infection forced her to cancel a number of concerts.

Sweet muscular Jesus! What have we done to deserve such a cruel, brutal fate? There’s violence on the streets, protests, the NHS being dismantled and a recession that won’t quit. AND NOW THIS? We’re going to have our misery not only soundtracked, but compounded, by the inane warbling of Canada’s worst export (and yes, we include Bieber and The Crash Test Dummies in that).
