Karaoke and the Dumb Blonde
I’m not one to cast aspersions on any group, nor to perpetuate any stereotypes.
But stereotypes generally arise based on some real-life experience, so with apologies to my blonde friends who are reasonably intelligent, I share this recent experience.
Party Machine Celebrations was providing Karaoke entertainment for a High School dance troupe that was in town for a contest. This group had plenty of talent, and several had obvious choral and stage singing experience.
One girl sang a solo of a current hit song, and was midway through and doing quite well, when the song went into an instrumental break. The on-screen instruction stated “Instrumental,” and then changed to say, “Spoken word.”
Imagine her surprise when the words she didn’t know, magically appeared on the screen in front of her!
Yes, she was blonde.
