Start spreading the news!!!!
This is really happening!!!
Betty Buckley does not like it when you diss Broadway and its babies!
The Broadway star took to Twitter to hash out her problems with Randy Jackson's critiques of Broadway on AI.
Even though she states she's never seen or heard anyone who has the chops!
Betty B said the following on Twitter:
OK, I just have to say this: I am sick & tired of Randy Jackson bashing what they think is Bway singing! It's soo ludicrous! I have yet to see or hear anyone sound remotely like they are a theatre singer on Idol!! And, further, theatrical singing encompasses every kind of sound, voice & style. He doesn't know what he's talkin' about!!
But wait! There's more!
nd by these constant disses he is tellin' Amer. kids that Bway is some kind of inferior art form. Next to jazz, Broadway is the only indigenous Amer. art form & with respect, 'Dog', your opinion is whack & uninformed! I mean, I respect Randy Jackson & everyone certainly has their own likes & dislikes, but THIS constant diss of 'Bway' sounding, to his ear, singers is just so ignorant & stupid that I literally cannot comprehend the producers allowing such mendacity in his remarks! Beyond idiotic!!!
Oh snap!!! That's definitely more than 160 characters so she must have super PISSED!
We feel you, gurl. Everyone has their own voice and there's no reason to take it out on Broadway.
Nigel Lithgow did respond to Betty however. He stated that Broadway is a "Mecca for talent" and that the problem goes beyond Randy.
If we've learn anything, it's that you do NOT mess with Betty Buckley!!!
