Why are these two supposedly different elements seem to be appear as such odd and irrelevant fellows but when together, make such powerful alliance? And the translation of the previous statement in English – Why sex and music sell?
Lavigne has not done, Spears did it first, Aguilera has done it way too many times, Beyonce Knowles is getting to do it more and Branch is just starting to do it. With a wiggle of their aerobically enhanced booty and a flash of their womanly bosoms, the world just cannot resist watching.
It is funny, actually downright hilarious, when hypocritical female pop stars point fingers at their peers for selling sex. Everyone started brand new… like a virgin – no pun intended but come the second album with the lack-lustre sales, and MTV refusing to air their videos, many decided to retract to the surefire formula.
Branch used to call Spears talentless and hated to be associated with her. With a couple of buttons undone and her panties showing, Branch quickly retracted the statement, calling Spears her new best friend. Aguilera in a recent interview was reminded that she once said, “Me running around in hot pants would not help a girl’s self esteem” Nowadays, she seems to be wearing hot pants in church… ONLY HOT PANTS…. and dear God-fearing Beyonce, with some bible-thumping abilities, writhed on a bed, all sweaty and bothered… Hmmmm…
Vanessa Carlton, Avril Lavigne and Hillary Duff will all release their sophomore efforts soon, and according to my crystal ball, everyone will drop their anti-Britney stance (except for Duff who acknowledges Spears), book a photo shoot with Maxim, make a “womanly and artistic” video, discovers their womanhood … and baby… do it for the first time.
