After my blog post yesterday, which I said George Michael was allowed to promote his new single at such a huge event, it seems I was right. And, he was not the only one.
In the newspapers today, they are angry with George Michael for using the global event to sell his own album. But, Jessie J was singing at the Olympic closing ceremony and SHE has a tour beginning next month. The boy band, One Direction, ALSO have a tour next year. Victoria Beckham performed with the Spice Girls and SHE had one of her own dress designs featured in the fashion parade. They played ‘Running Up That Hill’ by Kate Bush and even SHE has released the 2012 remix of that single.
I was surprised to see the Pet Shop Boys performing at the closing ceremony, because we have forgotten them and haven’t heard from them for years. What were THEY doing there? Well, we have the answer… they have a new album coming out next month!
So, the stars who performed for the world audience at the Olympics closing ceremony event, only did so for their own promotion. How rude!
