I feel the need to call for a moment of silence for The Gambler. It is clear that the Kenny Rogers we once knew and loved has been replaced by some sort of wax monstrosity that would haunt the halls of an abandoned museum or junkyard.
It’s as if his flesh has been pushed to its limits and is now revolting against the rest of his body, creating an entirely new individual in the process.
The photo above provided by Laura Bell Bundy on Instagram is from the CMA radio remotes before tonight’s event and Twitter is reacting accordingly to Rogers’ appearance at the awards earlier this evening.
Well said, sir.
I will go out on a limb and firmly state that I do not believe this to be the real Kenny Rogers. Only in the mind of Kafka or Lovecraft could some metamorphosis nightmare take hold of an individual and change them into the husk that appears before us now. I call out to you dear reader, write in, state your concern, get the real Kenny Rogers back.
At the same time, congratulations to Kenny Rogers on receiving the Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement award. Your career has been varied and musically important to countless artists over the years, earning you a respectable place within the lexicon of not only country music, but popular culture as well. The tribute to your music is well deserved and you are a legend of the industry.
Now someone yell this as Kenny, I’m not sure he can read it in his condition.
