I was faced with a choice, at a difficult age. Would I write a book, or should I take to the stage

Tuesday, October 25


You know, we bloody hate Paulini. Remember her? Australian Idol series 1 Hillsonger with an album of ballads and an axe to grind (for Jesus). Anyway, she's BACK, and we're SO excited. Look, can you, at the stills from the video for her probably-terrible new single "Rough Day":

Girlfriend is doing hair! With her girlfriends!

She misses the bus BUT DOESN'T SEEM TO CARE MUCH and why would you really.

How terrible this is in all available respects.

Did we mention hair is done in this video.

So anyway, doesn't this look quite spectacular? As you can tell we're really quite conflicted. If our poor little brains were to do a printout of our collated views about all this, it would look a bit like this: "This single will be great! She is just shithouse! Look at all that pink! This is the best thing in Australian pop all year! We hate Paulini! We hope this makes number 1! The Australian pop music scene is a fucking disaster except for The Veronicas, Rogue Traders, Dannii Minogue and POSSIBLY THIS SONG! Go away Paulini you fundamentalist Christian lunatic!" In summary, we haven't even heard this song AND WE DON'T EVEN WANT TO AS IT'S MOST LIKELY GHASTLY. But there's a cute video and that is very good (unless it isn't at all).

I can't wait for this likely atrocious song! Isn't it to be a "dancefloor stormer", or something?

And I never realised how much Paulini looks like Helena Bonham-Carter (in Planet of the Apes)!

Why the HELL aren't you more regularly blogging such pièces de résistance in pop wonder, THAT is the question. Please post something every five minutes from now on (starting in five minutes).

I believe I can help you out with a clue about what the song will be like, provided by the lady herself. Saw this enlightening exchange the other weekend on some music-type program.

TV person: "Can you tell us about your new single?"

Paulini: "It's called Rough Day and it's about me having a rough day."

TV person: "Sounds great!"
