Having been a huge Colbert fan from back in The Strangers With Candy days, I immediately liked it and then posted it to my Facebook. I don't actually watch a lot of cable TV. I watch everything through Netflix, it's just kind of how I roll. My point is, I don't watch as much of The Colbert Report as I should, so I didn't know the entire back story of the performance. Thankfully, one of my Facebook friends let me in on the events that led up to this epic performance.
Below, in order, you will find how this came about, the video of the performance, and Ms. Black's version as well.
|The Colbert Report||Mon - Thurs 11:30pm / 10:30c|
|Jimmy Fallon Promises a Performance by Stephen|
So we're clear, I'm no hater. I wish Ms. Black the best. I know A LOT of people hate that song and that she got famous for it, but if I could have done that at 13, you bet I would have. Instead, I was too busy reading and listening to depressing music.
