When you’re naked on TV and nobody notices for two days, is that really a compliment? I don’t know. But it’s what happened to Kacey Musgraves this week.
Turns out the singer actually performed in the buff — while hiding behind a strategically placed acoustic guitar — on Saturday Night Live last weekend. I suspect she and her handlers expected the Internet to go bananas. Until it didn’t. So today they put out a press release to let us know what happened — and to claim it was an homage to Jenny in Forrest Gump, so that it didn’t seem like she was just trying to grab some cheap headlines with a pointless stunt (which she totally was). But you know what? All that will be kind of beside the point once you watch today’s episode of Sonic Reducers. And I guarantee that you’ll notice what I’m talking about. Listen in (but avert your eyes) as we talk about Musgraves’ antics, worry that now some other singer is going to have to do something even more shocking next time (please don’t let it be Meat Loaf), and gaze upon the magnificent piece of hirsute eye candy that is Eric Alper. Sonic Reducers. One topic. Two music nerds. Five minutes. Everything you need to know. And more than you really needed to see.
