I can't think of one.
Painful, painful viewing.
i never had anything against her till she warbled all over We Will Rock You at the olympic closing ceremony.
I don't know whether its someone's money, or someone's reputation that is a stake, but her success far outweighs her ability, likeability or talent.
I'm not one of those people who whinge about pop music and stuff, but, given some of the other people who you'd think would be more popular or more marketable, her ubiquity is baffling.
she'd written some pretty huge hits for other artists before launching a solo career. Presumably she's well connected, hence being all over the telly/radio/press all the time.
But yeah, she is dire.
Danny or whatever.
What a cunt.
I don't even know who he is, seems a harmless enough sort of bell-end.
But she's far far worse - she'll reject someone and then after smashing their dreams into a million pieces - give them this awful patronising speech / hug and be all matey with them....If I was rejected on a TV talent show - I'd much rather get off stage asap, rather than dragging out the misery and tears for another minute of shameful 'I'm a nice lady, honest guv' acting by JJ.
Watching her pretend she gives a fuck about these people really made me angry. Obviously, none of the judges really give a hoot about anything other than their profile and paycheck, but they at least keep a reasonable air of seperation that you'd expect from a judge - from what I've seen...which is minimal.
- obviously very very smart as well.
nice shiny suits, and clearly doesn't care about anyone other than himself.
Which is fine.
Jessie J's problem is she doesn't feel she deserves to be there (due to the above mentioned manufacturing of her "fame") and that's why she gets torn a new orifice weekly. That Script bloke has less memorable songs than Shizuo yet he twats and gurns around like he's earned his right to judge.
Simon Cowell surely wins the biggest twat on TV award for the last decade, who didn't kill anyone? I caught about a minute of Britain's Got No Hope at the weekend and my instant reaction was HATE.
I dunno, at least when the baying crowd and sycophantic 'love me, love me' judges vote to put some poor 'a bit simple' sort through to the next round on the sympathy / laugh-at-the-simpleton-HA-HA-HA vote...
SC does actually say "NO, they're shit."
Dream crusher, maybe.
Shit taste, maybe.
Proof that money can't buy you style, maybe.
But he's not worse than Jessie J on that kind of reality TV from what I've seen. At least he doesn't rush the stage and try to cuddle contestants.
I don't know that it can be claimed her career is entirely manufactured or that she doesn't deserve any of it.
Of course, she went to the BRIT school, which seems to be the music equivalent of going to Eton if you want to get into politics, so she's obviously had a massive step up in the industry.
I find it hard to hate her, although I don't find it hard to dislike her music.
dont believe everything you hear theo.
'The following songs were co-written by Jessica Cornish' isn't necessarily untrue. think about the words 'co-written' tho.
Cathy Dennis would still have hits instead of writing them for others. While we're at it, bring back Kenny Thomas.
Of course Theo, thanks for the reminder. The credentials are there, the elevation to national darling feel quite contrived is what I mean, her two hits and now as big as Madonna elevation thing.
Co-write credits get bought and sold for the purposes of marketing.
I'd rather that, than fake David Brent levels of "I'm your friend (But you're all redundant)" fakery than JJ emits every time she crawls off her silly seat and up to the stage to cuddle a crying contenstant.
Im going to just chuck in an answer (hope its right)
Will I am
Although she does have a wicked penchant for thrones
who thinks she's better at it than she actually is.
doing it like a dude.
especially nicki minaj, adam levine, keith urban, etc. but I'm only familiar with the American versions
