Remember the 90s? You know when women were women and men having become women was really radical and super cool? When a drum machine was happiness in a box and all you could ever dream of was fluorescent lightning? Then you probably also remember the diva of divas, Dana International. Well, unfortunately she’s back and she’s representing Israel for 2011:
We mean, we do of course love our divas and queens in GEE. And Dana International really has gotten her share of love and disco moves from us. Of course she’s looking all fab ion 2011 as well. That must have been some painful injections. And her dress makes her look like an angel the Norwegian princess donated. But seriously, when all the glitter and feathers wear off, this is big disco shit, honey. And your moves are worse than when two bloggers hit the floor at the same time.
It feels a bit like Israel is trying to play safe here. You know like they suddenly built a lot of houses where they shouldn’t build houses and now all kinds of people are mad and they need to give them something they know everyone likes. Only that would have worked so much better towards the end of last century, not way into this one.
So we suffer through over a hundred ding dongs and some weird swaying of hips only for old times sake. And we ask ourselves over and over again why on earth only a couple of the choir chicks move, and not even in a synchronized kind of way. But halfway through we remember there’s more to internet than this. There’s Facebook to update and news about Japan to be read and yeah, what will we be having for dinner?
And then we go like oh, is that song still going? What is that again? Right, it’s Dana International. We just wish she would have adapted the expression Point of no return a little bit more literally. Meaning DON’T break our illusions. Meaning DON’T return. Ever.
Unfortunately she did.
