One of our readers just sent an interesting e-mail in regards to a conversation between Donald Trump and Cyndi during the Celebrity Apprentice. Most of you probably remember when Mr. Trump corrected Cyndi’s sentence. Here in an interesting explanation that one of our female readers wrote:
I heard Mr. Trump correct you on the show last Sunday night when you said, “I feel bad….” I think you should tell him HE WAS WRONG! YOU WERE RIGHT. See below.
Bad vs. Badly
Often I hear the word “badly” used incorrectly. For example, “I feel badly for him because he didn’t make the cut.” Most grammarians believe that this statement is incorrect. In this case bad is an adjective that we use with the linking verbs: feel, is, seems, looks, or appears.
To feel badly implies that your sense of touch is not right. When you are referring to a sense of touch, then badly is used as an adverb describing the verb to feel or touch.
The correct way to say the sentence is, “I feel bad for him because he didn’t make the cut.”
Cyndi announced the title of her new studio album on during an interview with Ellen DeGeneres yesterday. The album is called Memphis Blues and will be schedule for release on Cyndi’s birthday, which happens on June 22, 2010.
Collaborations with some of the biggest names in blues music. She has been working with Ann Peebles and record producer Allen Toussaint.
“Today I found out that Capt. Lou had passed away. He passed away at home with his family beside him. I am sad for his family and I’m just sad. But I know he’s at peace now. He had been ill for a while. My heart goes out to his family.
Capt Lou and I became famous together. He always made me laugh. He made all that promotion we did so much fun. He graced me with a lot of video performances that I will always treasure. He was a great, gregarious, hilarious fellow who had this lovable presence. I was lucky to work by his side. I will always look back on our absolute hilarious times and the magical world of Wrestling he introduced me to and shared for that brief time. As he said, he took me up the charts from 10, to 5, to 4 to 1, to minus 5 back up to 1 again. And it was great fun too.
So let me just say this; I love ya Lou and I can picture you up there somewhere explaining that PEG principle to someone. Or maybe you’re having a good laugh with Freddie Blassie. But where ever you are, I am sure you are causing a hilarious rucuss. And I will be sad to miss out on that.”
