Johnny and Thom from Radiohead - recently slated in the press by The Darkness of all people - have suggested that reality pop stars are being moulded into "40 year-old stars like Annie Lennox."
DiS would like to contest this somewhat - Michelle McWhatever looks nothing like Lennox at all. Indeed, she's more Lewis than Annie (and likewise should probably retire soon).
However, the sour-faced duo have a degree of respect for Fame Academy's favourite lesbian Alex Parks: "She's got a fuckin' great voice and if this is the only way she can get out to people it's a shame because there's really something going on there and people will dismiss it because it's that. If that's the only way to get exposed now then there's something seriously wrong with the music industry. I'm against the safety of it all. The industry sort of eating itself whole seems to be depressingly pointless."
DiS doesn't know who said what - Thom or Johnny. We weren't there because we were buying up copies of the Busted single in a last-ditch attempt to keep Peter Andre off the number one spot.
