America’s New Presidential Music Critics

President-elect Barack Obama had the courtesy to nod and even sing along to some of the worst performances at the “We Are One” concert to welcome him to the presidency. Well, he had to, basically. But his daughters Malia and Sasha, who don’t have to pretend to like something that is downright awful, had no problem showing their disapproval. Malia’s eyes glazed over in boredom when John Mellencamp, Will.I.Am, and Sheryl Crow hit the stage separately. Sasha simply fell asleep on her mother’s lap. But when Beyonce, Usher and Kal Penn hit the stage, both First Daughters perked up, and Malia excitedly snapped photos with her camera. Malia and Sasha definitely know what music America enjoys. It’s too bad the concert producers don’t. [New York]
