Aguilera brings shame on national anthem

February 10, 2011

In response to Mary Lou Wickham's letter regarding Christina Aguilera's dreadful rendition of the National Anthem ("Christina Aguilera: spreading the gospel of tacky ignorance," Feb. 8), I couldn't agree more!

The Super Bowl was televised around the world, including to our troops in various locations who are always respectful of what it means to them and us. It was an embarrassment to hear her bastardize a song that should be sung as it was written!

I noticed a number of the players being distracted, jumping up and down and not paying too much attention to someone who was more intent on glorifying herself. That wasn't their fault!
