Worlds crash and collide as SNL’s latest greatest spawn, The Lonely Island, bring Michael Bolton, he of cheesy, ’80s ballad fame, back from netherworld and to the club. What may have seemed a brilliant idea quickly turns into a clusterf*ck with Bolton’s endless references to Pirates Of The Caribbean and other films being almost as confusing as Bolton’s inclusion in the song in the first place. Real song or a gag joke? Dah well, we may never know or who cares. I lost my will to figure it all out when Bolton blurted out the word “p*ssy.”
Now, “back to the good part” or maybe the bad for some. While your favorite rapper struggles to be heard, the Island guys are dropping their second album, Turtleneck & Chain, tomorrow. Proof positive that life’s more fulfilling when you don’t take yourself too seriously.
