Pseudo-Intellectual musings by a pseudo-intellectual person.
I'm watching the Jessica Simpson video, and it occurs to me that she has become a caricature of herself - she seems to be playing out the life she plays on TV, married to Nick, even to the point of making fun of herself (as portrayed in Newlyweds) - and she does it all seriously - as if she doesn't even "get it".

Is it possible for her to walk upright and move her mouth without having ANYTHING between her ears ??

I define "talented and successful" in the entertainment realm as - providing good entertainment to a great number of people. Both are successes as measured by fanbase,

That said - someone can be a Talented and Successful Tyrant and won't get my respect.

In regards to speaking intelligently - I have heard Christina in interviews and she seems pretty perceptive about the world. There is this intangible quality some people have when you listen to them you get the impression about their relative intelligence. Of course I will grant you it could be due to sheltering by their handlers. In some sense, hiring a handler requires a certain amount of intelligence - which apparently Simpson doesn't have.

or maybe it's all part of a media domination plan. dunno

I think that defines "successful," but "talented" does not necessarily follow from popularity.

Not necessarily true either: she was inches from becoming an unknown until her television show.

BulbousHead - you suck - only because you are a better me than I will ever become. And I mean that as a compliment.

Presumably people buy her CDs because they are entertained by her; go to her concerts because they are entertaining.

Note: I never said talented musician. heheh.

Super Baby, go to Fametracker.com and search for an old Julia Roberts thread and you'll find loads of criticism, especially when she was dating Danny Moder.

But back on topic, Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey depend on each other so much. The marketing revolves around them. They are in every picture together on magazines. Without Newlyweds, they would still be clinging to the C-List and clamoring every little morsel they could get of fame. However, once they break up (if that happens), both of their careers would be over.

The Punk'd episode with Nick Lachey was funny. "Are you one of the Backstreet Boys?" .
