Oh please! Popstars etc is the audio equivilent of SPAM, manufactured meat mass produced and sold to those of slow wit who don't know any better.
Give me something with integrity anytime. I don't care if such and such looks hot, barbie looked hot, Naomi Campbell looks hot, dosent mean I'm going to buy onto the hype and hyperbole and follow the crowd like a domesticated farm animal. These people DON'T have to put in hard work, they just have to attend a couple of auditions and look the part, then they get TV exsposure and a GUARANTEED record contract. They don't have to write thier own material, it's given to them by the record company, they never had to bust thier ars*s playing in pubs and clubs six nights a week, hauling their own gear, for sweet F A while working two jobs during the day. They never had to study music, they never had to learn to play an instrument.
Now next time put some thought into your post before you put it up junior, and watch your language too, coz it dosen't impress anyone. - if you consider the post contentious tell us about it.-
