stylistically, shes not in the same vein as Brittany spears. but in principle. I say this because her career was handed to her via her father's legacy and her image factor. If she was out writing her own music, playing her shows by her self, marketing herself from day one an working her self from the bottom up over years of touring and fan establishment, I might think different about the whole placement. Music is an extremely difficult career to pursue, and I think it just sort of fosters some sour feelings knowing that someone else in the marketing dept, sort of did all the work; assigned her a band, a website, a distribution team, had videos made, ushered her into rehearsal, and beck's steady place in pop music transfers a security over to her.
I love the album and her work as an actress, but I find myself sort of more upset over the whole of it all, the ideology I guess.
I do know what you are saying, it realy is an artistic collaboration. But I can't help but feel the collaboration would be more meaningful it she had partly written the music, and it was less about image.
I agree, not only is it frustrating that she is fostered into the industry without an iota of talent, she is touted as an "under the radar" artist. She is not an artist. An artist creates something. At best, she could be considered a subpar vocalist and performer.
