Happy Birthday!

Its Madras day! Madras was found on August 22, 1639. That makes this the 368th year.
Talk about history!

Noble Performances

I chanced upon this video last night in YouTube. Looks like Rihanna has performed in the Noble Peace Prize Concert in Oslo, Norway on December 11, 2006.

It was damn funny imagining the Noble peace prize Awardee sitting with fellow nominees and hearing (and seeing) Rihanna perform her two 'jewels', especially the Unfaithful song. Those people sit at the concert after they have been commended for striving for peace. This female comes along singing about how she ditched her lover, is now going out with someone, how her lover feels sad about this and how she is sympathizing for her lover and would rather kill him than put him through his sorrows! Perfect setting to sing this if you ask me. It is a good thing Mother Teresa got her award long back and did not have to sit through such nonsense.
I am not complaining about the song per se but the selection of the songs for the occasion. In the first place are such extravaganzas needed? I am sure Alfred Nobel must be turning in his grave.

On an off note do take a look at this 'exquisite' performance by Rihanna. Her expressions (squirming and twisting) as she sings the song with 'emotion' is enjoyable to say the least.
