And I agree with you missaddicted that they don't seem to trust in the talents of their artists -- I don't think that it's solely 19 or the record labels and the Idols either. I think it's in general. Record labels just don't trust their talent to make the right decisions.
Re the re-worked Truth. I don't think they're trying to kill Kris's carreer. I actually think that they are trying to get the song played. I wish they had kept Kris singing the best part of the song, but I still think it has hit potential. But why when you have an artist like Kris who excells at rearranging songs to suit him, would you throw Pat Monahan into the song willy nilly (and give him the BEST part)? If they wanted Pat in the song.. why not take a day and throw them in the studio together to work something else out?
yeah the lack of MTV/TRL etc. removes a platform that was really valuable. Even MOD is like the last remaining scrap of music programming on Much Music. It used to play music all day, or music programming, now it plays Gossip Girl. They really play very few videos and if they have guests in studio aside from MOD they squeeze them in during the commericals of Gossip Girl. It's ridiculous.
The Script wrote LLWD???!?!?!?!?!? OMG!!!
