"Celebrity" Guests du Jour
Posted Jan 13, 2010 @ 10:08 AM
I guess NOT that surprisingly. She's a crap singer, and is basically living the life of a useless celeb who does nothing worthwhile, but at least when on American TV she comes off as a reasonable combination of dry and stylish. I mean apparently UK audiences HATE her, then again we seem to value some of their stars more than they do (while they seem to love some of OUR oddballs, like Joan Rivers, or the Jackson extended family far more than WE do).

I'm a little surprised she's been picked on in the press and elsewhere so much for looking emaciated. Not that she isn't of course, but I don't think it's at all unusual to see that in Hollywood/US TV. Whenever I see Desperate Housewives for instance, I always feel like Teri Hatcher's on the verge of collapse. Not to mention the likes of Calista Flockhart on Brothers & Sisters or Ellen Pompeo on Grey's Anatomy, and I could mention many more scary skinny women. It does seem like Posh is being singled out a little unfairly.

Yeah, but we got compensated for with Katy Perry, who is a delightful bitch. "This isn't a Lifetime movie"? Classic.
I thought Avril Lavigne was an immature bitch last night, but maybe she's always like that? I'm not all that familiar with her or her music...

Please stop, or I'll throw my Coke in your face.

In the case of Avril, how stupid to invite someone who more or less invented the genre of disengaged teenager to a role requiring her to ENGAGE with contestants and fellow judges, not to mention viewers, many of whom are adults and not afraid to admit it. I wanted someone to rip that hood off her head and pull back her hair; you don't isolate yourself from your fellow panelists like that. I mean, where people can choose whether to associate with you or not you can hide in your little womb-like hood all you like, but your fellow panelists have no choice but to sit next to you, so for God's sake pull back the curtains.
She was also bored and did not not connect with either the role or the contestants. Again, who thought she would? She does boredom and 'I'm too insecure to want to make you feel good' for a living. Please, don't ever bring her back.
Katy? My instinct is to say "get over yourself" but it's not that simple. It's more like she thinks that being rude makes her interesting, failing to notice that Simon, who wraps rude up in excellent command of language, formal manners, and a sense of humour, not to mention some empathy, is a far more fascinating package. Hell, he's had all of North America wrapped around his little finger for lo these many years, and I'm over Katy Perry already.
As for tonight, I liked guy #1 who I admit I'd never heard of before (Neil Something), and really quite enjoyed the young Jonas. He was engaged, relaxed, attentive, responsive, and he actually said more than most outlets have reported, especially if you count the opening statement in the limo. A warm smile goes a long way. In a way he is the anti-Avril, and I'm delighted that he and his brothers are popular. There's hope after all.

Can't believe I missed Neil Patrick Harris! Drat. (Was catching a rerun of Modern Family for the 1st half hour.)

Joe Jonas was pleasant and attractive. Non-threatening, like his music.

Unlike rat-faced Avril Lavigne, who got on my last nerve. What was with that stupid hoodie? You're 26 woman, stop dressing like a 13-year-old! And telling that Pat Benetar-singing fake rock girl that she was punk? What the hell does Avril Lavigne know about punk?!

Kristin Chenoweth: Cutesy and clearly having the time of her life. Partied with Kara all night I'd bet.
Avril Lavigne: Looked stupid, acted stupid and then as if to clear up any doubt, only said things that were stupid.
Posh Spice: Most of the time she seemed to be in a daze, like maybe she forgot to eat that morning, or every morning for that matter
Shania: A classy lady who knows a lot about the music biz and is willing to share.
Katy Perry: Looked great, as always. Took turns tweaking each of judges a tad. She's a bit sassy and I liked it.
___ Jonas (forgot which): zzzzzz. Did he say anything? At all? Did the director forget to give him his lines?
