What I Learned From Milli Vanilli
By Chris Munroe
Milli Vanilli sang that you should blame things on the rain.
I’d thought this was a cop-out, a way of avoiding responsibility.
But as I’ve grown, I’ve realized they’re right. Some things in life are beyond your control, they happen TO you, not because of you.
And at times like that, the best you can do is blame it on the rain and hope for better next time.
Though I can’t help wondering…
Stripped of their Grammy, tour cancelled, Milli Vanilli were the laughingstock of the music industry. A punchline, forevermore.
On that day, who or what did they blame?
