OK, so there is this show on right now that actually sort of hurts me to watch. If you haven’t seen “The Masked Singer” the idea is that “celebrities” dress up in elaborate costumes and then sing. The judges try to figure out who is under the mask.
It is terrible.
There really isn’t any way to sugar coat it. It is not a good show.
So why am I writing about it? Well I had in my head some sort of biblical point about the nature of celebrity and how our culture idolizes the wrong things. But when it came to actually writing it the whole thing just seemed forced.
So I guess I just wanted to say that The Masked Singer is a terrible show.
