Teen pop divas are on my mind today.
First off, there is news about a diva of my youth: Deborah Gibson, Ms. Electric Youth herself, is posing nude in the latest issue of Playboy, just ending its run on the shelves since mid-February.
Oh, Debbie, Debbie, Debbie I thought I could rely on you to grow older gracefully. What's the matter? Did one too many comparisons to early Britney Spears finally put you over the edge? Or did you watch that VH-1 Behind The Music about Tiffany one too many times and think "Well if she can get a boob job and do it to get the attention of some middle-aged Republican record executive in LA, why can't I?" *sigh* I guess that someone can only be in touring productions of Grease and Cabaret for so long.
Speaking of the lovely Ms. Spears, I found this picture over on Go Fug Yourself yesterday:
My best guess for her new look is that she's hoping to get the role of "Flo" in a gritty big screen re-make of the 70's Linda Lavin sitcom Alice... should plans for any such film ever appear. Can we hear a "Kiss my grits Mel Sharples!" from anyone?
