Mercedes is lazy. And next weeks promo.
So next week’s preview looks like another diva off between Rachel and Mercedes. This is stupid though, why is even a contest. The part of Maria consists of both singing and dancing. Does Mercedes not know about the physicality of that role or just not care. We learned this episode she doesn’t feel she needs to (and even complains about having to) dance or move because she so sure in her (obviously great) voice. Why does Mercedes think she even has a chance against Rachel?And another thing, why is Mercedes only motivated to do something when someone else namely Rachel wants it badly? It seems she'll happily sit on the sidelines until someone else puts forth the idea and then she'll barge her way in and try to take it. Then of course she'll never work on it as hard as someone like Rachel would.And finally in the promo Kurt says something about her (Rachel) losing friends but the thing is, does she really have any? We see in this episode that she clings onto and considers the Glee Club her family, but do any of them actually consider her their family. They all seem to hate her for who she is... it just saddens me how Rachel is treated by everyone on this show.
I support Mercedes being more assertive in her goals but she completely went about it the wrong way. Calling Rachel an ass-kisser? Telling the rest of New Directions she's outgrown them? You'd think that after knowing Rachel for the past two years, Mercedes would know better than to pull this kind of behavior.
i absolutely hated Mercedes this episode. and she said that Rachel always gets what she wants? is she kidding herself? Rachel always seems to be the one getting hurt in one way or another. and yes i agree with Blade up there by saying that Mercedes is trying to achieve goals. but the way she goes about that is way out of line. oh and i'm so glad that she's out of New Directions for now.
