it's just an excuse to get people to vote for Ralph because some how he was insulted.
[FONT="Impact"]American Idol -Our long national terror is over no more WGWG.
Had he said "kitty" or cat instead, more innocuous and still gotten the point across with the phrase used, he'd been better off.
Meaning sadly, he knew what he was saying and how it would come across - and even if he didn't, when he saw Karina's face, he should've apologized.
I'm sorry, but in today's society that term has a much more vulgar reference and I think Bruno would be hard pressed to claim ignorance. That just wasn't cool.
The point was ... prior to specifying her cat, she'd talk about how her pussy for example would rear up and growl or something... then mention her cat, which made people's minds wander to the sleazy category.
And given that almost all the Bond girls' names have a sexual connotation, if "Pussy" wasn't seen as a bit naughty, risque, you wouldn't have had names such as "Octopussy" or "Pussy Galore."
BUT, as I've mentioned before, it's common knowledge what the term is used for in slang - and like in the 1970s, people have dirty minds. Bruno knows - or should - know that pussy is not seen as common place for "pussy cat" anymore. And, as mentioned, had he said "Kitty" or "cat" it'd still gotten the point across, would've been a bit sexy still, but in an innocent way, not vulgar which is what many people are referring to.
Please understand, I get where you're coming from, but in today's society the way Bruno said it was intentional to be taken as sleezy and he should apologize.
Yep, it's all about intent, and Bruno intended to be vulgar.
This isn’t the Sound of freaking Music we’re watching.......sdl
Bruno may not have meant it to be sexual, but the problem is, that's just how it sounded. Karina and Ralph were offended, and I think even CA and Tom were taken aback by it. Bruno's gotten away far too long with being OTT and making sexual references instead of constructive critiques, so even if he didn't mean it that way, that's how people are going to take it. They bleeped it out, so that says even the show thinks he might have gone overboard. If it works getting extra votes for Ralph/Karina? Great! But I doubt it'll be enough. Even without Bruno's remark, I still would have had enough to rant about last night. He just added to it. As Ralph said in a post show interview, how is that constructive criticism? I think that's all the couples want, and the judges turn it into a three ring circus because it's a TV show, and they don't know what they're talking about.
