Am I a 14 year old girl? Not the last time I checked. I have no business listening to this album. Mainstream pop music has always been run by an evil consortium of Hollywood Svengali, Freemasons and Swedish engineers, but now in 2010 it’s reached the point where I feel like I’m reviewing a Reebok sneaker. No—there’s more honest artistic expression in a typical sneaker then what I hear on this disc. The Milli Vanilli scandal would never have happened nowadays, why bother hiring nameless studio singers to cover up for your VH1 drone’s total lack of talent when you can just drench a shit ton of autotune over every worthless syllable they drunkenly mutter? I guess all the stupid Hot Topic kids who grew up watching “The Hills” or “Paris Hilton’s New BFF” looking for role models need something to reaffirm their worthless lives before the real world inevitably crushes their dreams.
