I missed all that, whatever it was
There was a thread about here, most said bad things, others (myself included) said good things.
Someone sent her the link, she was upset.
her myspace on here n loads of people tried adding her n sending her messages.
I missed some Alexa Cheung action?
Was it brian may stylee?
i managed to escap that one unscathed i think. Although i may have waded in with a bad comment about ben elton.
Actually ill say my bit here; i dont like the way shes used as a spokesperson for this generation. It will be terrible to look back in a few years time and think that we were being represented by figures such as her and alex zane, who appear cutt off in a commercial world, ignorant of the issues that surround us. Im sure theyre probably okay in real life, but the lens paints a pretty bleak picture.
I'm attractive! I'm 'Indie'!
I would rather have someone who is interesting or amusing.
er yeah she is cute but this is still true. I haven't seen her Ben Elton show - I daren't I may get a seizure but her style is watchable for about two and half minutes.
It was all downhill from there. (Says a man who still hasn't really accomplished anything)
being from my area, she must be alright ;)
but i see what people mean, on tv she comes across as a bit of a douche bag
her myspace was listed on her wikipedia entry. It wasn't like anyone from these boards was deliberately advertising it.
Anyway - I think this week's "Get A Grip" was a lot better than the previous instalments. Ben Elton still has a lot to answer for cos the material is pretty dire (the sketches and 'illustrations' are utterly inconsequential and patronising in the extreme), but I genuinely believe that it's Alexa's charm that stops the whole show being as bad as it could so easily be.
She got to say a bit more this time and it was far more effective than when she just chuckles aimlessly. I think they should lose Ben Elton and get the people of DiS to write her rant scripts.
