Contributed anonymously: Last night, Mandy Moore was interviewed and profiled by Dateline. She’s not half as big as Britney Spears or Christina Aguilera, but Dateline took notice of her and how she’s one who needed no stripping on every magazine cover or dance video just to be noticed. Her talent was enough to get her there and Dateline gave her thumbs-up for it, both in her singing and acting. Dateline also noted that among other singers who have dabbled in acting, hers was the one critics paid more attention to.
I am not a big fan of Mandy, but seeing what she has done in her career and how she has not allowed herself to be corrupted by the system give me so much comfort that there still are decent young stars around who may be taking the slow ride to stardom but at least have not made a fool of themselves by trying to be controversial just to sell records. And while Mandy may never be a huge superstar like Britney or Christina, she has definitely earned her place and respect in this industry.
Mandy Moore On Dateline NBC
November 27, 2003 – Contributed by atomickitten: The long await Mandy interview with Dateline will finally be aired Friday night 8PM ET/PT. The preview says: “There are a lot of young stars (and some older ones) making headlines for racy clothes, suggestive dance moves and on-screen kisses. But Mandy Moore is taking the opposite route. The ‘tween’ queen is making a name for herself based on her movies and music career and talks to Ann Curry about her latest CD, ‘Coverage’.”
