Thursday's Confession


I think Breakaway, by Kelly Clarkson, is fantastic. I really do. There's not much more I can say to elucidate or elaborate on that point. I think it has something to do with the fact that I wake up to one of her songs 2 out of 5 days of the week (the radio station on my alarm clock seriously plays one of KC's songs at 7 am every morning). Either way, it is a dirty little secret of mine and now you know. Hopefully, we're closer now because of this.

As an entertaining diversion, I highly recommend spending some time reading reviews of "From Justin To Kelly". Each one is worse than the one before it.

[Reader Note: in the interest of full disclosure, I must report that this comment is excerpted from an email sent to none other than NegativeMode earlier this morning. It was requested that I post it as a comment]

I thought about commenting but decided it wouldn't really add much - I wasn't going to comment on your taste for the music (which, while lame, is not totally ridiculous because a few of her songs are catchy and well-produced), but rather that picture. Celebrities always look better than real life in their glamour/press/mag shots but this is ridiculous. Looks like they airbrushed Hilary Duff's face onto that picture (onto an airbrushed-thin pic of Kelly Clarkson's body, I suppose). Despite very major makeover efforts expended on her behalf, Kelly Clarkson is still quite unattractive. I think it's comical the efforts that the celebrity press makes to describe her as "improved" to some level attractiveness, when she has achieved anything but.

For instance, here is a more authentic picture of Kelly Clarkson:

and this one isn't even that bad.

Here are PositiveMode's two links from above, both linkified so you don't have to cut and paste, cause I know most of you are extremely lazy:

i don't know any of her songs, because i don't listen to the radio. but i don't think there's anything wrong with liking a cheesy pop song once in a while.

it's worth noting that metacritic always posts scores from highest to lowest, so each one is always worse than the one before it.

Gentlemen we cannot continue being so dumb. We cannot continue to be surprised about the effects of a talented face painter and specific lighting. I mean haven't we seen enough glamour shots to know that pics with that misty hide bad skin, that shirts that match the background of the picture hide unshapely figure and, well, we all know what it means when those orms are crossed under the chest.

All the same, DJ since you been gone I can breathe for the first time, and I am glad I made a wish, took a chance, made a change and broke away.

Those two songs are just so damn catchy.

Four tries to get that comment right huh? I will delete your deleted comments Mr. BrownBear.
