They call this a marketing ploy to sell the eclectic music that Dave Stewart and Kara DioGuardi accidentally created when they gathered to write for the Pussycat Dolls and none of the music was acceptable for this latest bubblegum-pop group.
I should not be surprised the following statement came from Stewart, who played the Caterpillar in Tom Petty's music version of Alice in Wonderland and has had drug problems in the past:
"We're in our own perception of our own world. So what's reality and what's not?"
Now I ask again, if people in the entertainment industry are this delusional and willing to mislead then why should anything they say be taken seriously? They are minstrels hired to entertain. Not paragons of politics or learning.
What caused this post? Catching on VH1 a music video by Platinum Weird. Lead singer is a cute blonde dressed like Stevie Nicks did in those early days of Fleetwood Mac but her lip-syncing leaves much to be desired. The music itself left me feeling unimpressed with a slow forgettable beat even as they recreated the style of those early music videos with psychedelic backgrounds ala Grace Slick and Jefferson Airplane's White Rabbit. Next time Dave, please go ask Alice when she's six feet tall.
