    How fitting that a non humanoid should be conducting the ever super amplified popera hack.

      His “voice” aside, Bocelli still breathes. How will the robot follow him?

      And wouldn’t you love to have his bank account.

    Not really. It’s been 15 years since Dubya waved at Stevie Wonder.

    Good luck to the robot for attempting something that no human has ever succeeded in: conducting that PR fraud.

    1. John says:

      Rich ‘PR fraud’. Eat your heart out.

    Artistic quality cannot be measured by the money it generates. Cheap art remains cheap regardless of bank account’s size.

  5. Fact is, your account remains tiny no matter how great your emperor’s clothe is.
