On last night’s American Idol, Casey Abrams, a freakishly tall Hobbit who was forced to flee Middle-earth after finding out that his true father is Hagrid from Harry Potter, ended his performance of Maroon 5’s “Harder to Breathe” by getting in JLo’s face and launching a kiss onto her cheek. Maybe I’ve seen too many novellas and basic cable movies about stalkers, but when a man gets in your face like that for an extended period of time it’s usually because he wants to tell you that he’s about to murder your entire family. Or he wants to tell you that he knows what you did and you better meet him upstairs in his bedroom before he places a call to the sheriff. Unless that’s the effect Casey was going for, his timing sucked.
It was extra creepy that Casey kept singing “it’s getting hard and harder to breeeeathe” while making it harder and harder for JLo to breathe since he was blocking her air space. See? This is a direct threat and the Middle-earth authorities should be contacted right away.
