FRESH PERSPECTIVE

This is my second episode of the season. (Last night, unfortunately, technical difficulties prevented me from posting.) So it's Idol Gives Back with a splash of "Seasons of Love" from Rent sung by the remaining contestants... And tragic stories from Africa and Louisiana sprinkled in. I'm feeling a tad manipulated.. but where's my phone? Wait, Alicia Keys is asking the media to curb on "celebrity drama" coverage (Britney, Lilo) and turn its attention on HIV/AIDS because then, and only then, that particular medical crisis "will be well on its way to being solved" ..??? Oh Alicia, dear, there's so much naivete in that logic, I don't know where to begin. So, I'll leave it at that.
