R.E.M. Singer On ‘The Kiss’

R.E.M. frontman Michael Stipe was on Last Call with Carson Daly on Tuesday night and was asked about the kiss between and at the MTV Video Music Awards back in August. Stipe said, “It seemed — it seemed inappropriate to me, on several levels. And I admire both of those women for the music that they write and for the — you know, in one case, anyway, Madonna, certainly, someone I respect for being a strong woman, at a time in American history when it’s not easy to be a strong woman. And she really stood up for something that she believed in, which was herself. And I think ‘Ray of Light’ is a brilliant, brilliant pop song. But I don’t think I need to see the two of them kissing on TV.”

    Nice quote, it’s nice that he’s not just purposely bashing them, just stating his opinion…and surprise, surprise, Christina is ignored AGAIN. It’s almost as if she wasn’t even there that night…Guess that’s what happens when you have NO stage presence. *snicker*

    1. HE DIDN’T STOP HIMSELF SHORT. HE SAID IT LIKE THIS. I RESPECT BOTH OF THEM MUSICALLY, AND I RESPECT MADONNA FOR BEING A STRONG WOMAN. THAT’S THE WAY IT FLOWS. 2. I TYPE IN WHATEVER FONT I WANT TO TYPE IN.
