After watching Justin Bieber perform on Saturday Night Live, all I could think was “whatever happened to male vocalists that sing like Otis Clay?”. Did men totally lose that rasp and soul, or do the ladies really just prefer a Bieber / Timberlake / Usher tone? I don't get it.
If I was a lady, I would hope that someone hitting vocals like the way Otis delivers “leave your daddy clothes at home” would get me screaming a lot louder than the way Bieber would have cooed it. But then, I am not a lady. So what do I know?
