Why do music artists feel the need to reinvent themselves? Especially when they haven't spent a long time in the industry to begin with? Jessica Simpson for an example. Her new single sounds like a bad remake of "Holiday" by Madonna - which makes me think - what would ever possess Jessica Simpson to think she needs to put out a Madonna style pop dance tune? Did someone say to her "You know what? You need to revitalize your image - let's reinvent your style!" I mean really.
The funny thing is, she is a very talented singer. But for some reason, they've got her all Pop Tart'd out so that she could almost be in the running with Lindsay Lohan as the new Britney Spears. If you ask me, if I had all that talent and looks behind me - I'd want to be in a league all of my own. I'd want people to aspire to be me, rather than being "just another pop star". That light burns out far too quickly. I don't understand why she doesn't go back to singing the big ballads, or even gospel which is where she began. Although given her current path, I suppose that would be rather hypocritical.
Here's an idea. Where she's clearly not the brightest bulb in the box - why not reinvent her image by educating her? This poor girl had Pam Anderson rolling her eyes at her when she asked how they ran so slowly in the Baywatch opener. I've got to think if you've got Pam Anderson thinking you're an idiot - well, then it's not looking that good for you. And incase no one's informed her, looks don't last forever either. If that's what she's banking on, well - given some of the photos I've seen of her lately - that clock has already started ticking. Does she want to end up looking like Pam Anderson? The most naturally beautiful girl I've ever seen looks so hard and washed up now, it's hard to believe that she was once the Tool Time girl. Jessica seems to be heading down that same path; again, another naturally beautiful girl who's potentially destroying her appearance.
So that's my rant for today. I can only listen to "Public Affair" and the Paris Hilton song on the radio so many times before I feel nauseauted and think that there's got to be more out there musically than this.... !
By the way - I still dont have a new PC - so if you dont' see me commenting, don't take it personally!
