JOKE OF THE DAY – What Do You Get If You Dip a Girl Aloud in Tango and Electrocute Her?
ANSWER - Nadine Coyle performing at a private party at Manhattan gay hotspot Splash trying to resuscitate the dying corpse of her solo career.
Sure, that wasn’t so much as a joke but, seriously, WTF Nadine? It’s like Jersey Shore went to the Circus. I’m all for ridiculousness in pop music (after all – it’s meant to be FUN), but you look like a Little Britain caricature. At best.
To be honest, I’ve always liked Nadine. Sure, she’s only the fourth best member of Girls Aloud (after Kimberley, Cheryl and Nicola, obvs) but she’s always been oddly endearing. Between the adorably incomprehensible accent and the gloriously nonchalant disregard she’s had for the actual business of being a popstar, she’s been as much an integral member of The Aloud as any. Which is what makes the dismal quality and general half-assedness of her solo output all the more disappointing. She may be the undisputed voice of Girls Aloud, but her solo campaign has been the musical equivalent of The Emporor’s New Clothes.
Anyways, as much as a dissertation on the inadequacies Nadine Coyle’s solo career would be PERFECT Sunday Night reading, all this text is getting in the way of glorious, glorious photo’s of Nadine looking like a poor, orange electrocuted clown.
To wit :-
YOU CAN’T MISTAKE MY DRAG QUEEN-OLOGY!
AND MY CAREER GOT COLD..
AM I THE ORANGE KI-IIIIND?
And here’s a video of her latest, desperate grab at gay solo stardom Sweetest High, filled with pictures of Nadine in happier (and less orange) times :-
