I will be honest, for a change. I listen to all types of music on a pretty regular basis. I like everything from James Taylor (on tour again this summer) to AC/DC. I will even throw in a little country due to my love for Faith Hill and Shania. Old R&B (no Chris Brown) to older stuff like The Chordettes and Buddy Holly (who just happens to be singing Oh Boy! to me at this very moment) is also likely to found on my various playlists.
The one area I have pretty much ignored for my entire life has been classical and anything opera related. For the longest time I refused to listen to Opera because I thought it had something to do with Oprah. I just couldn’t stand the thought of listening to that beached whale sing.
Anyway, this morning, I am doing my normal surfing of my fav sites and come across this photo of an apparent porn star. Here she is:
I thought to myself, “wow, porno chicks sure are a lot hotter these days”. When I was watching grainy reel to reel movies or old VHS tapes they were NOT sttractive. I mean that chick from Deep Throat was just fugly. Good at her craft, no doubt, but her looks were hard to swallow (rim shot please!) The lone exception was Marilyn Chambers.
But I was wrong about her being in porno (At least the commerically available type). The photo above is of Katherine Jenkins. She is a classical opera singer! Are you freaking kidding me? Technically, she is a mezzo-soprano. I don’t know if that means she used to be in the Mafia or something but who cares? My God, what a woman! I would hit that with Ram’s thingy. (Yes squirrel, I am exaggerating. The only thing I am hitting these days is small women).
When I think of the opera, I think of mostly really large women. Rubenesque, if you will. And hey, I am ok with that. But c’mon, an opera singer that looks like a top notch porn star? It doesn’t get much better than that. So, I now have to see if I can go to one of her performances and see if I can sit in the front row. (Little doubt in my mind that once we make eye contact, that I will be asked to meet her backstage immediately).
To be honest, I am kind of worried about getting some gay on me by going to the opera, but sometimes there is a price to pay. Hopefully, the number of guys running around in leotards with their groin area stuffed to look like a small watermelon will be kept to minimum. It confuses my boys when they look at something super hot and then super gay. They feel dirty somehow.
I am now off to find out more about my new love, Katherine. Wish me well!!!
Oh, and if you were wondering who The Chordettes are, here you go:
