My great post didn’t make it online! Stupid Blogger server!
The point is this: Ashlee Simpson is everywhere in spite of the fact that she does not have a shred of talent. Kudos to the Orange Bowl crowd for the BOOS after she performed at half time. It would be a real stretch do describe what she does as “singing” – it’s more like screaming off key into a microphone. It truly sounded terrible. She has decided to try and become some kind of alternative princess, a sort of Avril Lavigne wannabe, except that on Ashlee it seems so contrived, like a feeble attempt to be different from her equally ubiquitous though more talented older sister, Jessica.
She has officially supplanted Brittany Spears in my mind as the postergirl for what is aggravating about the pop music world. Executives and publicists at labels, MTV, Clear Channel (and their ilk) simply decide who will be “hot” and “in” and popular. Then they foist these people on an unwitting public who are simply told to like them because of the hype. Good for the Orange Bowl crowd for not buying it!
Alias is back after an 8 month hiatus!!! Gotta go!
