can you believe that shit? how about the fake fireworks at the end of the ceremony?! computer generated because no one would have be able to see the fireworks through the pollution!!!
Lame! I saw it & wasn't caught completely by surprise after the fake fireworks...
:(Why? China, why?
At least this deception doesn't involve poisoning anyone. It is so sad to see what this purported "communist" government has become. It is more like a dystopian illustration of what can happen if capitalism is allowed to run amok.
i sat, jaw open, for minutes when i read of this this morning. ugh.
seriously, that's terrible.
I heard about this yesterday...and I think the other girl (the real singer) is cuter!
i read that yesterday. awful, just awful.
I call bullshit on the "16 yr. old gymnasts" BULLSHIT.You know they're 10...
Everything I need to know in life I learned from "Singing in the Rain." And they say musicals teach you nothing. Pshaw!
I'm lovin' these socially conscious posts, dude. :)This makes me angry. Even if the real singer was ugly (and I don't think she is - at all), she had a right to be up there.The very awkward child in me is really sad for her. Then again, so is the adult part of me, too.
It's not like the real singer is fug, she's cute! Shame shame!
Ironically, while the PRC is trying to use these games to try to change their image in the eyes of the rest of the world, I believe these decisions are firmly based in communism and its utilitarian roots. It is about the people and not about the person. So with adhering to that thought process, not only does their decision make sense, it was the only sensible decision for a communist to make. So using the two girls to constructing the "perfect little girl singer", regardless of the psychological damage to the singing girl, was in the best interest of 1.3 billion Chinese.I don't condone it but I understand.
Thats terrible, and just imagine the memory she'll have of this for the rest of her life. Thats so stupid :(
I thought it was brilliant. That girl's teeth are Nas-tay. So what if she's traumatized for life? Aren't we all?
That is messed up!
Yes, SO bad!!!
