How do you spoil the message behind a popular song forever?
For example, it’s impossible to listen to Aaliyah’s “I Believe I Can Fly” or “Age Ain’t Nothing But a Number” without realizing that prolific sex abuser R. Kelly was behind both. For nearly 20 years, Stealer Wheel’s 1973 song “Stuck in the Middle With You” was a minor hit with a pleasantly hippie-ish feel. After 1992, however, it is mostly remembered for recording a harrowing scene in Quentin Tarantino’s “Reservoir Dogs,” in which a psychopath tortures a bound police officer in inexplicable ways. in a family publication.
Admittedly, those are prime examples, and none of those songs reach the iconic level. Can you really spoil the message behind, say, “Imagine” by John Lennon? And do it just by covering it up?
Give it to “Wonder Woman” actress Gal Gadot: In 2020, she’s taken a solid step toward destroying the only Lennon solo that everyone knows. Now, she admits her viral video was in “poor quality”.
Gadot’s video is hardly the only form of celebrity hypocrisy we’ve seen during the pandemic – and here at The Western Journal, we’re pushing back against the elite as they impose the rules. for us they don’t care follow themselves. You can help us in our fight by registration.
In case you forgot, go back to March 2020, when the world stopped. Those of us who are likely to be asked (or forced, in some cases) to stay home, shower ourselves with hand sanitizer, and wash our hands after each meeting while singing “Happy Birthday” twice. . For many of us, this means losing our jobs or businesses – or knowing that, if the lockdown continues, we will lose them. The street was deserted. People cannot get the medical care they need. Addiction in recovery has been cut off.
Fear enveloped nations across the globe. We don’t know how long this will last or how many lives it will take. Many loved ones have died without being able to say goodbye – especially in care homes and especially in New York, where COVID-positive patients were ordered by the Old Government to allow access to nursing homes. . Andrew Cuomo.
But don’t worry. Gadot and a group of friends of celebrities had Just a balm for a wounded world:
“We’re in this together, we’ll get through it together,” Gadot said in her Instagram caption for absurd video. “Let’s imagine together. Sing with us”
Imagine the tenor of the deaf-mute responses to the song “Imagine” inspired at the time. It’s not hard to do:
This is a message from people with a lot of assets that can take a year off work and unafraid to tell everyone to go out to work to imagine a world without assets while everyone is living on the street. street half a mile from them. RT @MattWalshBlog:

That’s right, apparently a roster of lead artists, comedians, and other knick-knacks sing about imagining no fortune from their mansion when supporters of the business founder their careers and careers are not going well. It’s not just a terrible cover, two years later it’s still an albatross circling Gadot’s career – and, in an interview published by In style in January, she admitted it was a bad idea.
The topic came up after the interviewer noted that Gadot, while accepting an award at the Elle Women in Hollywood Awards, began singing “Imagine” as a form of self-mockery.
“Yes. Might as well. They have a mic there,” said Gadot.
“A lot of people wouldn’t do that,” says InStyle’s Laura Brown.
“It just feels right, and I don’t take myself too seriously. And with the whole ‘Imagine’ controversy, it’s funny,” Gadot answered.
“I called Kristen [Wiig] and I said, ‘Listen, I want to do this.’ The pandemic was in Europe and Israel before it got here [to the U.S.] in the same way,” she continued. “I’ve seen where things are going.”
However, she said that the cover song was “too early”. It was neither the right time nor the right thing. It has a bad taste. All pure intentions, but sometimes you don’t hit the mark, right? ”
Yes, one could have it missed the mark. However, there is a difference between when the dart fails to hit the red eye and when the wrong throw causes it to hit a spectator’s sternum.

Fine, give Gadot points for finding it “less tasty”. However, you only get credit for “pure intention” if your worldview lies somewhere vaguely within the orbit of reality.
Gadot and everyone involved in this mess are creatures of the entertainment world – people who have managed escape the orbit of reality like the human probe Voyager, thrust into the murky darkness of La-La Land by a combination of money, privileges, fame, and a cast of flight attendants tasked with isolating them from existence that 99,999 percent of the other world has to go through.
No one learned any lessons from this, you remember. I can’t rewatch every Marie Antoinette moment that Hollywood connoisseurs take on during the pandemic, but let’s remember last year’s Emmy Awards They took place in Los Angeles County – where the awards were held – There has been an order to wear masks indoors. But that’s just for the common people, right?

When Seth Rogen appeals to people for their awe – and in a way, their hypocrisy – it says something.
But don’t worry – Los Angeles County Department of Public Health assure all of us this is being raised, because”[t] The Emmy Awards Show is a production television show, and the people appearing on the show are treated as performers, “allowing them an exemption.
Imagine the cognitive dissonance involved there. You could say Gal Gadot is a hypocrite, but she’s not the only one. Now, when we hear “Imagine,” we can all think of well-trained Hollywood stars, assuring us that we’ll be fine as long as we just lock, even if we don’t. Good job.
