E! Newswoman Blasts Jewel

Chaunce Hayden of Steppin’ Out magazine recently caught up with E!’s news anchor Giuliana DePandi and asked what she thought about Jewel’s sexy makeover. “Jewel is a sell out,” she moaned. “We did a report on Jewel and how great she looks and how well her album is selling. Screw Jewel! She’s a sell out! I don’t care if she does my show or not. My personal opinion is she’s just a sell out. She wore baggy jeans when it was cool to wear them and stood with a guitar singing about saving your soul. When that was in, Jewel rode that wave and she was amazing at it. But then suddenly she’s in Versace mini skirts and high heels! And she’s trying to say she’s evolving? BS! She’s just selling records! She looked at the charts and saw the album was number one, so she figured that’s who she has to be. According to my dictionary, that’s a sell out!”

    Um…if you ask me, Jewel didn’t really sell out. She did change her image, but if she wanted to make a lot of money off it, she would have rode the Avril wave and gone “punk.”

    Who is this Giuliana woman, and when was Christina’s album #1? : / I actually think Jewel went against the mold on her last album, she could have just as easily continued doing the acoustic thing, since it was part of the ‘singer/songwriter’ wave. Instead, she changed it up and did music that wasn’t considered the ‘it’ thing, ya know? Then again, most of the songs I’ve heard on her new album sound like “Oops..” rejects so maybe she should have stuck with the acoustic thing. Ehh, who cares.

    I will support Jewel no matter what, she like Christina is real talent. Why isn’t she allowed to dress sexy too, and plus if you ask me its only her first single that she was dressed up for the video. In that video she was proving a point about the media, in most of the video for her second single, she had on jeans and a t-shirt. And plus this person is just bitter because in Jewel 1996 “you were meant for me”, she had some sexy clothes there so how come this person didn’t ever notice that.

    I’m sorry, but that Giuliana girl gets on my LAST nerve! Who the hell is she to criticize Jewel and why does she care how she dresses. Jewel is still singing about the same things she’s always sung about, she may be singing them over a different beat, but the message is the same. Guiliana needs to worry about her big ass forehead and not about Jewel’s wardrobe.

    uh perfectlyimperfect Christina’s album has had many number 1 singles . And plus the album was number 2 in the U.S but number 1 everywhere else.

    Who the hell is this woman to be blasting anyone? Jewel is still the same person, just because she wanted to experiment and do a different type of album and different videos means she’s trying to copy someone else? If anything the guitar singing stuff is more in style NOW than it was when she was doing it. I swear, these people will say anything just to be heard.

    Giuliana is so ugly! Lol, anyways I don’t know if Jewel is really a sell-out. I haven’t heard her new album so I don’t know if she’s this “sex kitten” all of a sudden. But ‘Intuition’ did say… “You got something that you want me to sell. Sell your sin. Just cash in.” To me that’s saying, SEX SELLS. Whether it be her label making her dress sexier or not, somebody in her crew knows what sells. To bad her sexed-up image didn’t sell for her. I think in everybody’s mind Jewel is this sweet girl with an acoustic guitar. Either way, I still like her, she’s amazing.

    GIULIANA DiPANDI IS A COMPLETE AND TOTAL MORON!!! Where the hell does E! get these airheads from??? I’m thinking that these gals either slept their way there, or are somebody’s daughter in the industry who thought it might be fun to interview celebs.

    Okay you know what…….that newswoman was out of line. how does she know jewel did all that to sell records. jewel has the body and I don’t blame her for showing it off. maybe she was sick of being so conservative all the time that she felt like she needed the freedom to just dress freely. its not a crime to dress sexy so I don’t know why everybody’s making such a big deal out of it. how does her high heels and stiletto’s affect her song writing skills or her ability to sing…..nothing. people are focusing on the wrong things. jewel still is a great singer and songwriter. she always was.

    So then Madonna is a sell out? Correct me if I am wrong but didn’t Madonna “change her image” like once a month or so? So what, now it is against the “law” to grow up and experiment with new things just because other people don’t like them?

    For one thing, Stripped never hit the number one spot although it did have good album sales. For another like someone else mentioned if she truly wanted to be trendy, she would either behaved like Avril Lavigne or make a hip hop record with a bunch of guest rappers. Dance pop hasn’t been trendy in a long time and that’s what her album is. And finally after seeing her video “Stand” she has not completely ditched the old formula she became famous for. The song itself is very political. Somebody needs to educate this woman.
