Honey G – WHY?

Why is Honey G so popular? She is not. Everyone hates her. She is not a singer and she has no aspirations to be a musician. She has no heart in music or performing. All of her performances consist of her “rapping” – it isn’t really rapping, it is more like rambling out of time to the music and then occasionally shouting “When I say Honey, you say G” before more rambling. She looks like your auntie wanted to look cool and “hip” and pretend to be a rapper so all of the kids think she is cool but she would be embarrassing.

I am convinced that the show has been fixed in her favour. The way I see it, the name Honey G generates so much media attention – the woman you love to hate – and the intention is to bring more publicity and viewership for X Factor. She won’t win but they will keep her in as long as possible until the final stages so they can vote her out for a more “serious” winner.

Every year, Simon Cowell and the judges always insist it is a serious music competition intended to find the next big talented singer but as we all can see, that has never really been the case. This year, the judges have even been praising Honey G (What!!!) when the majority of viewers and even celebrities voice their dislike of her! Nobody can take her seriously and nobody can be voting for her seriously! Last weekend, Honey G was in the bottom two. Finally, we all thought that this was her time to go. There is no way that any other contestant who can sing better (not hard, she doesn’t sing) can be voted out…what?! WHAT?! The judges voted to keep her in!!?? If I was Ryan I would be feeling very sad/angry at the moment.

If the show isn’t fixed as ITV seem to maintain, I say everyone should vote for her, just to mess with Simon Cowell. I have had enough – the show is a joke. Let her win, make a mockery of the show, release her Christmas single (said to written by Ed Sheeran this year – can’t wait to see how that will pan out), flop, make Cowell a laughing stock and end the show forever. The end.

The Apprentice 2016

Is anyone still watching The Apprentice? And if so, is anyone still enjoying it? I have been a regular viewer but I feel like the format is getting stale now. It is always the same tasks every year – design and market a new product (this year jeans), make and sell your own food (this year spending time in the kitchen making sweets), find a list items, at least one of them unknown, and negotiate for lowest price (spending the early hours of the morning looking for a tagine in London). As always, the tasks don’t actually matter because Lord Sugar only cares about THE BUSINESS PLAN in the end, which makes watching the whole process pointless!

This years’ candidates have to be the worst ever. Normally in each series, there are a few candidates who look like they are worthy and work impressively but this year, they are all completely useless! There are no shining stars at all, given that we are 7 weeks in. They are ¬†all stupid, dishonest, passing-the-buck and egotistical. It makes it painful to watch each week, and it is not even entertaining any more, just boring.

If these are supposed to be the top of the crop of businessmen and women, what does that say about our country? The Apprentice is tired, dull and boring. Change the format or give it a rest.
