    then why the world did she go back to blonde if she didn’t want to be like everybody else?

  2. galleta says:

    lol….cause she doesn’t want to be like everybody in Texas, but she does want to be’, ‘like everyone in Hollywood.

    This is not a comment as much on Kelly (who is one of the rare female pop singers popular with teen girls who can really sing) as much as the difference in the markets of the US and UK. It’s interesting that pop stars who have made it big here are largely ignored there and vice versa. I don’t think the two countries’ markets being so far apart since before the Beatles hit. To be honest, I haven’t heard stuff by the pop bands like Busted and the other top pop bands and singers so i can’t say if they are as bad as the stuff we get. It seems only major rock bands (Coldplay, U2, etc.) and some hip-hop seem to be able to be successful in both countries. Anyone have any input on what good pop stuff might be available over there? For the record, I’m a sucker for guitar driven power pop/rock (think Skye Sweetnam).

    Is her saying she didn’t want to be like a fake blonde from Texas…’, ‘the same as saying she didn’t want to be Hilary Duff?

    I heard that she got knocked up – and that the father is a Texas restaurant owner.

    Let’s put it this way: Whenever MusicMan posts about Rachel Stevens or some unknown UK artist, the people on the UK end of this think Rachel Stevens is a big star, & that a US artists like Hilary Duff is a nobody (when in fact, she’s popular in the US but almost non existent in the UK), & vice versa.

    Difference is we in the U.K. don’t limit ourselves. We give each artist a chance. When I’m in the U.S the radio stations play the same performers over and over, in the U.K. we play different artist, also we tend to have artist from all over where as in the U.S. we tend to just focus on our own singers. Bands can come to the U.K. and Japan and other countries because we seemed to be more opened minded than in America. Here in America we follow trends more than we do in the U.K.

  7. astrange1 says:

    i don’t think it’s us…’, ‘asa much as the conglomerates such as Clear Channel who have taken over and decide what gets heard. The fact that major label sales are dwindling even from a few years ago and alternative methods of distribution (internet downloading and radio, indie labels) are growing is some indication that this may not be sitting well with many. After awhile, even the biggest junk food addict will get sick of a diet consisting only of cotton candy.

    She said she dyed her hair brown because she didn’t want to be like everyone else. And that she dyed her hair blonde because she got bored.. and now she’s dying it back to dark brown for the Because of You video. But not yet.

  9. jazzprofounder says:

    Hm cool, but she’s like majority of pop stars now. Seems like every young female artist is dying their hair blonde, i don’t get why they cant just keep it natural, such as Lindsay. Blonde doesn’t work for some of them.
