    I miss Gino Vanelli and Alana Myles and Trooper, Loverboy and Prism, and Idol Eyes...
    just my 2cents.

  2. demigod on March 3, 2010 11:49 PM

    Who can I see to get this look? I want to look like a small d@uche.

  3. Nancy on March 4, 2010 12:25 AM

    Why? When you already look like a BIG one! LOL.

    This kid just turned 16 years old. Personally I don't like his music, neither do my kids but, to call him a "d@uche"...isn't that being "arrogant" and sounding "so sure of yourself"?

  4. demigod on March 4, 2010 1:13 AM

    Arrogance is presuming to know someone you don't know, how they deal with loss, and how it affects them. I'd have to say you of all people, are the worse judge of character, so you should refrain from giving us any 'psychological profiles'. Cos you're not very good at it.

    No, this kid is a d@uche. Another d@uche wouldn't recognize.

  5. E-Rock on March 4, 2010 2:59 AM

    i will just throw out there right now that the reason why most people dont like him is because he sings about love and how this one girl is forever his or w.e. ... he is 16 now and he is ANNOYING!!!! HE KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT LOVE!

  6. Nancy on March 4, 2010 11:14 AM

    "Arrogance is presuming to know someone you don't know"

    You call him "a small d@uche". You ARE "presuming to know" him. You don't know me at all, so how would you know I am "the worse judge of character"? I will comment what and when I want so don't tell me to "refrain", Leech.

    Btw, as I previously said to you on the Simon Cowell article, each and every one of us who comment on this website, are "presuming to know" the people in these articles...just as you are "presuming to know" me, right Leech?

  7. demigod on March 4, 2010 12:06 PM

    Shush now

  8. silver on March 4, 2010 12:44 PM

    E Rock, while Nancy and demigod have their little 'discussion', I agree with you. He doesn't look even 16, so to 'believe' a love song from him is ridiculous -- and in the short bit of a video of his song that I saw, the girl looked like she was in college and wouldn't (shouldn't?) have an interest in someone who looks like he's just started junior high.

  9. Nancy on March 4, 2010 4:56 PM

    I agree with E-Rock and Silver.

    Demigod, take your own advice and stop being a hypocrite. LOL.
