But, controversy rears its ugly head. The performance, which appears to be at Camp MaNaVu, is interrupted mid-song by an angry rebbe Elchonon Schwartz. Lipa gets pushed of the stage and scolded. Crowd cheers for lipa. Microphone gets turned off. Concert over.
And here's part II with the rebbe getting angry at the crowd and the crowd,of frum Jews, not buying it. And then, the crisis is over and Lipa is back on stage? But the argument continues. Fascinating to watch.
UPDATE: Ok. I missed the joke. Evidently the whole thing is a put on, part of a camp 'color war.'
Sigh. Thanks to BlogInDm for straightening me out. He also points out that the riff that prompted the kerflufle in the video is lifted from the R&B musician Usher. Which I also should have recognized, but didn't. Oh well.
UPDATE 2: Chaim at LifeOfRubin explains the whole color war thing and puts it all in context.
Hat tip to Camp MaNaVu for posting the video.
