Aisha - The Faux Pop Idol?



In the Billboard Top 200, we're flooded with American Idols from Simon Cowell's eponymous TV show of the same name. The measure of success in the U.S and other countries is measured by page views or demographics i.e. YouTube or Reality television. As a society, we've become too involved in these 15 minutes of fame stars (as artist Andy Warhol called them) and we've largely ignored real talent. Kelly Clarkson, for example, is the only notable American Idol contest to come out of the contest and rise as a singer after the show ended. Susan Boyle, a surprise favorite on Britian's Got Talent, has risen much to the acclaim of her critical and public success after appearing on that show. With Aisha, I feel like we're recieving a pre-packaged Swedish Prostitute with a voice. And it doesn't work for me. Does she work for you? Vote Yes/No.

@ Lauris - A comment like yours is requesting a reply and I'll be happy to follow up. You commented "Yeah prostitute and some chauvinist blog here." I'll let you know - I respect women and their endeavors as entertainers. With that being said, I believe women's willpower is equal, if not greater, than a man's drive. The post I've done on singer Aisha is relating to my distaste for a different type of woman: Reality TV whoring.

Totally agree with you on your American Idol comment. Kelly Clarkson really was the most talented winner.

It's kind of funny to see a runner up like Adam Lambert go on to be more successful than the actual winner, but he really should have won anyway, I think.

Thanks for sharing this artist. I can't say it's entirely my type of music, but it does have a nice rhythm to it!
