I Want to Take You Away

Good morning, absurdity. How did you know to arrive on time, and in the form of Charo?

Her 2002 show at the fair in Santa Rosa is still one of the best five dollars I’ve ever spent, and the passing of time hasn’t dulled her ludicrous sensibility one bit, as evinced by a glorious appearance singing Rihanna’s “Don’t Stop the Music” Sunday on the Jerry Lewis telethon. Try to watch it with a straight face. I dare you.

    Charro is supposed to be a pretty good guitarist. She’s probably a very savvy lady who developd this Latina version of blackface in order to make it big during a time when race was more of a blockade to enjoying mainstream success than it is now. I admire her for keeping at it, though there’s probably not a cell in her body that hasn’t gone under a plastic suregon’s knife.
