Posted on June 09, 2014

Sniff. Sniff. What’s that smell?

Ah, yes.

The smell of desperation.

We suppose we could take the charitable route and say “This is fun! She’s playing a character!” And sure, that’s true to a certain extent. But we don’t know… we’re gonna piss off a ton of rabid little monsters when we say this, but it feels like she’s spent a good portion of her fame period squandering the spotlight on too many stunts without fulfilling the enormous potential she’s always had.  There was a time when her name was synonymous with the idea of a charismatic, talented performer with something to say, but now it just calls up countless images of a crazy lady walking the street every day in a succession of attention-seeking costumes.

Believe it or not, we’re still rooting for her, because when you put her up against the women who have kind of stolen her thunder – Miley, Katy, Nicki, to a certain extent –  you’re comparing an artist to a bunch of talented pop stars. Yes, we do believe that, despite the constant eye-rolling and bitchery we direct her way.

Did she just run out of things to say?
