Apparently Entertainment Weekly writer Michael Slezak has swapped bodies with Andy Rooney (a la Freaky Friday)–and apparently the magazine’s readership has been replaced with that of Reader’s Digest (ala the Folgers crystals challenge)–if this forehead-clenching mini-rant about grammar in popular music (and attendant fun-hating/wet blanket/cornball-ass comments section) is anything to go by. (I seriously think my internal organs cringed when I re-read the title.) Sure, we’ll poke fun at a habitual mangler of English like Courtney Love–which is Ulysses-level language fuckery compared to a piker like T-Pain–but spelling jokes? About hip-hop? In 2007? Yo Slezak, please feel free to hit us up with some au courant gags about Zubaz later on today. Yaddamean?
