From the Wembley concert recorded this summer that aired two nights ago on NBC. The edge of her edginess was dulled long ago, but it is after all the slowest of slow news days. And besides, it’s fun to watch old ladies curse.

Here she is singing “I Love New York” (her version, not the version you’re thinking of); the line is supposed to be “Just go to Texas / Isn’t that where they golf?” If you can’t decipher it, let HuffPo be your guide.

This was also the concert that got pimped on Drudge a few weeks ago for the part where she descends to the stage bound to a cross. They cut it from the broadcast, but the redemptive power of watching an aging whore perform opera bouffe with Christian symbolism shone through nonetheless.



Oh — she also solved the Middle East crisis.
