The community is up in arms about Gwen Stefani singing a remake of “If I Were a Rich Man” from Fiddler on the Roof. The biggest complaint: “But she’s already rich!” Apparently Fiddler is believed by many to have been actual footage of the Singing Peasants of Russia, rather than a musical, played by actors, who probably made quite a bit of *gasp* money from acting in one of the most beloved musicals and movies in history.
Remember, all you aspiring rock stars: in the post-grunge age of rock it is considered devious and confusing to sing from any perspective other than your own. I mean,it’s like, a lie, unless you’re, like, totally singing from your heart. You gotta, like, keep it real, y’know?
