She claimed to get her job at Teen Vogue due to extensive knowledge of fashion. Then, on one episode she mispronounced the names of FOUR commonly well-known designers and, as an intern at Teen VOGUE, when the second most powerful person at Vogue magazine (the most widely circulated American fashion magazine) was mentioned, she looked befuddled and asked, "Who is Andre Leon-Talley?" That does not "an extensive knowledge of fashion" make.
1. She can't sing live and it's like no one notices.
2. She insults other artists with no provocation.
3. Her hyping of her "curves" which just aren't there, and (aside from padding and corseting occasionally) she doesn't even hide the fact.
4. She markets herself heavily as a sex symbol AND a kid-friendly artist.
She can sing, she can dance, and she has a lot of je ne sais quois, but come ON. "goddess"... "half angel and half nymph"... "the most beautiful girl in the history of the world"? And now there are meme-tastic "Alizee facts" akin to the "Chuck Norris facts" (which were first "Vin Diesel facts", but I digress).
There are some celebrities who I really, truly like and/or am a fan of, but even so, they are so praised for their attributes (real or imagined) that I cannot help but admit that, yes, they are overrated.
