Jai Ho?

Woke up late today, still groggy, turned on VH1. The Pussycat Dolls version of 'Jai Ho' was playing... Considering that it is A.R. Rahman's composition and the Dolls obviously cashed in on the opportunity and that their only contribution was some meaningless lyrics and a few awkward dance moves with some equally pathetic makeup, it was worth noting that Rahman had barely any visibility in the video. A few seconds at the most. Hopeless. Why does Rahman do this to himself?

Ya. The pussycat dolls' dance was crap too. They tried to package Jai Ho into their way of presentation and totally screwed it!

When a foreigner tries to look Indian why do they always end up looking Arabian???

I had no idea Rahman was into Pussycat Dolls...

My respect for him just went down a few notches.
