American Life
One of the new singers who is currently doing very well in the US of A is Stacie Orrico. At first I wasn't interested in her as she looked like a rapper girl, totally not my style, but whne I actually gave her single, Stuck, a listen I found out that I had been missing out on a fantastic pop/rock/r'n'b song. Here are some sample lyrics:
I hate you but I love you
I can't stop thinking of you
It's true, I'm stuck on you!

Brilliant! I soon found out she actually started out as a Christian singer (You can't tell at all) and this is her second album. She has a website www.stacieorrico.com, so don't just take my word for it, go and see her brilliance for yourself. If you want to hear another of her songs I recommend (There's Gotta Be) More To Life as an unmissable future hit.

When Will They Be Famous?
Today I introduce you to another of my regular features, When Will They Be Famous. It is basically about whichever pop reality show is currently exciting or irritating me. And Pop Idol 2 and Fame Academy 2 are the shows currently doing the job. I found out yesterday that both Gareth's cousin and sister are planning to audition for PI2, but I'm not even going into that. As long as they don't go through, all should be fine.
In Fame Academy news, I found this article about some of the auditionees so far. Not much info yet as there's only been one audition but with London this weekend there should be a bit more news soon. I'll keep you updated!

I Can Read You:
My current reading matter is the Popstars: The Rivals Official Book. I've had it since December, but only just got round to starting it. So far it's been very enjoyable for the following reasons:
1. All the info and pictures of Mikey, Andrew and Nicola.
2. This nameless cutie. Anyone know who he is?
3. The bit where they call Andrew a "softly-spoken Will Young look-alike".
4. This picture, where it looks like Mikey is about to kiss Andrew!
5. Mikey sitting next to The Cheeky Girls.
