....LMB: "The Most Shocking News Ever!!"....

November 10, 2002

There's this pop singer, see. She's also a TV actress. Her name is Hillary Duff. She put out a single, "I Can't Wait," but it did really poorly. It got played on the radio exactly once, in Albuquerque, in September.

But the song is absolutely massive on the Radio Disney network, a series of 52 AM radio stations owned by the Disney corporation. Radio Disney has played the song 850 times in the past 6 weeks.

Have I mentioned that Duff's album was released by a Disney-owned record label?

Or that she is the star of the show "Lizzie McGuire," which airs only on the Disney Channel?

Yeah.

[update: 5/21/03]

I've had about enough of this, Hilary fans. This website is not and has never been about your favorite actress/singer. I hope you've had a nice time, but I'm ending the comments here. Go have your Hilary chats someplace else.

Radio Disney plays Hillary Duff because kids like my grandaughter (6 yrs) call constantly and request it....she doesn't have the buying power to purchase the record...also all of her friends do the same...they listen constantly to Radio Disney and can sing all of the lyrics of the top songs

Posted by: ET Kares at November 13, 2002 12:55 PM

Well, yes and no. We've got two facts here that aren't necessarily related. 1) your granddaughter and her friends constantly call to request the song. 2) Radio Disney plays the song all the time. Does the radio station actually respond to requests, or do they go ahead and follow their pre-programmed playlist regardless of what callers ask for?

Also, although these girls might not have the "buying power," advertisers count on them anyway. There is a presumption on their part that children will harass their parents into buying them things, whether those things are CDs or dinners at McDonald's. I find it interesting that in several Scandanavian countries, it is outright illegal to advertise to children. Doubt that sort of sentiment could grow much here.

PEople, well I'm 12 I absolutely love hillary duff and just want to be like her. But ya know her songs dont have to be number one to be good.
THey just get to famous. LIke britney who would want to be her, her musics bad, shes ugly and she has you know what. But still she gets top hits. You can be a good singer but not be top. SO many bands in my town are way better than the top 40 hits. Just to let ya know hillary is the number one person ever shes a role model to many. KIds like her and shes some one to look up to but maybe nt stupid immature teens and adults who can only listen to "cool music". GO HIllary!

Posted by: HAnnah at January 1, 2003 10:30 PM

hilary is needs to stop trying to be like britney spears, she was cool when she was on lizzie mcguire, but she cant sing, shes gona ruin her own career

Posted by: muk at January 5, 2003 02:08 PM

to um, Hannah, who's 12, listen honey. You sound so much like how a typical 12 year girl would sound. "I want to be just like her." And I would like to ask what stupid immature teens and adults listen to, because you would be the most immature out of all of us concerning your age. Unless maybe you're one of the hopeful few who has a brain. I'm not saying Hillary's not a good role model or anything, but music isn't the best thing she should be doing right now, and frankly, she just gets on my nerves. So just tell me what music we stupid older "kids" listen to. thanx.

Posted by: kittie at January 12, 2003 04:44 PM

Hey. I'm also a teenager - 13 yrs old. Hillary Duff - okay she doesn't have the greatest voice, but hey she's just trying to make it in show business. Singing was the next best step for her carrer. From one of the kids that I baby-sit for, I got the Lizzie McGuire sound track. I don't listen to it frequently but when I need high energy music, its what I turn to. I just don't sterotype music like some people do. I may listen to rap, hip-hop, dance, r&b, but I don't stick to one genre. I like some oldies, some classic rock, some of everything. And part of everything includes Hillary Duff and *kiddish* music. Role model? Well, she might be -cool- because she has her own television show and she is now singing, but isn't someone else a better role model? Someone who is actually in a movie - that's not from Disney? Someone who has made it much bigger? It's just my opinion, and you are able to have your own opinion, but take mine into thought.

Hey...I'm 16 years old and she is really kewl! She has all the right outfits and has a good voice! In my opinion...KEEP SINGING HILLARY!

Posted by: Katina Spurlock at January 13, 2003 01:27 PM

I'm sorry but not to rub it in your face or anything buddy, but your opinion isn't everything. How old are you anyways? You probobly are not in the right age group to get into her. Plus she is making a heck of alot more money than yoy are! So what if she is not number one. I don't see you as number one. Do you notice that you are the only on against her in this place? I'm 14 and I say right on Hillary!

Posted by: Allie at January 13, 2003 05:46 PM

Ok,First of all I am a teen. And I know what pop music is and she does not really have any talent,not to be mean. I saw a song with her and Lil romeo and all she did was say the chorus and the put her name first on the artist title It really makes no sense. I think that they want to use her popularity and Looks to get her to the top and to tell the truth that will not last forever.Thanx

Posted by: Krystal at January 18, 2003 09:08 PM

I am a teenager, 14 going on 15, and I personally dont think Hillary Duff should be considered as someone who is the most wonderful "kids" actress. She is (in my opinion) a hypocrite. Duff says she treats everyone fairly and is the sweetest and most innocent teenage girl on T.V. Yes, I must agree that is the right message to be giving kids these days, but how are they suppose to follow her so called "example" if she does not do as she says. When she went to public school (if she ever went to a public school), I am most certain she would have been a, what we call here, Prep. A popular kid looking down on others. Possibly a cheerleader but most likely not realizing how she goes back on her own "words". I am not being entirely cruel here even though some of you might think so. I am just being very blunt and giving my critism to some other people before they are sucked into this "T.V. Fantasy Girl World". Real life isn't like that. Take my advice, if you like or love Hillary Duff, I suggest you face reality and see the real picture. IF Santa Claus isn't real then neither is SHE.

Posted by: Jazmin at January 18, 2003 09:36 PM

hey, Allie, was that comment directed towards Jake? because if it was, it makes no sense. who cares if Hilary is making more than him? i doubt he cares. and i doubt he WANTS to be "#1."

Posted by: Akasha at January 19, 2003 10:50 PM

Akasha:
You are soooo wrong about that. Jake TOTALLY wants be #1. The guy is obsessed with it. And, to be quite honest, I think he is jealous that Hilary makes more money than he does.

She's sexier, too, and that peeves him more than I can say. Seeing Jake in a halter top is no picnic.

Posted by: jeremy at January 20, 2003 10:43 AM

foo! what you talkin? Jake in a halter top is my fantasy!

Posted by: Akasha at January 20, 2003 01:09 PM

The following is a public service announcement:

Stranger: Pssst...Hey kids, my name is M.M. Do you want to go back to my place? I got a bunch of sugary-sweet pop music by vacant role models whom you want so desperately to emulate. We can watch some...er...harmless movies...that feature predictable, sentimental fairy tales that reinforce the values you think you have. And then afterwards, we could uh...go into my bedroom...and tell you why shopping for Disney products makes you a "kewl" American.

Posted by: Akasha at January 20, 2003 08:21 PM

Now, I feel that I've started something that can't be stopped. First some chemical peels, a personal trainer, and an image consultant. Next, some kinda crazy liberal version of cross-fire.

Eventually, they'll have to replace Kurt Loder, and I'm sure that, by then, Jake will be ready, with his Nike hat and a Pepsi in his hand.

Posted by: jeremy at January 21, 2003 10:30 PM

hillary duff is clearly one of the most talented singers to emerge in the 21st century. If only the top 40 radio stations knew what they were missing! Radio Disney is on the cutting edge. They push the envelope to the extreme. Shame on you who disparage hillary duff simply because she is a well known talent. she is the brightest star to emerge from the teenage pop milky way next to lalaine. please take this into accout before you repudiate her salient abilities.

Posted by: John jurevicious at January 31, 2003 02:47 PM

Jazmin:
Why are you stero typing Hillary? You didn't know her. People change in life. She could have been a sweet nice girl. You didn't know her and you don't know her so don't hate. I think Hillary is a great example for kids and teenagers. She is doing a great job on her show, and I think shes a good singer. She also doesn't have to wear clothing that's to small for her to show people she is good. She is doing 2 things that I would love to do, and she is showing me I don't have to be a slut to do it.

Hillary Duff is a very talented young woman. I appreciate everyone in the entertainment business for all the hard work, dedication, and talent they have. You guys think it's all a piece of cake...but I bet you all couldn't sing for America or act for us either. Don't go to extreme by saying Hillary can't sing or can't act. She has a wonderful gift.

I think a lot of you are immiture. I am not exactly a big fan of Hiliary's, but she does sing better then Britney, and it doesnt realy matter anyway. If singing is her dream, then let her live it, if it ruins her caerer, she may be bummed, but I dont think she will realy have regrets. Can any one of you who are bagging on her trace your feelings to anything but jelosy?

Posted by: Tada at February 18, 2003 11:27 AM

Hi everybody!! :) i am 20, and i both like the Hilary Duff music video, and it makes me sad.
I think it's funny that we're all thinking and talking about someone who we've never even met. I want to get Hilary's e-mail, and ask her how SHE feels. She's the only one that would know ANY of these things we are guessing about her. ;-)
The part i like about the video is the lyrics. That's how i found this site...trying to get the lyrics so i can hang it on my door to look at as i go out on my way to work. I especially like the part about "i know this day will bring what i need..." that's the idea, but i couldn't remember the words. It comes right after the "i don't care if it's raining" line.
The part that makes me sad is that music videos used to be for adults, and i am frustrated that grown-ups make things for kids that are copied after grown-up stuff, instead of teaching kids about kids stuff first. I am also disappointed that we have made it so that kids (like me:-)) watch T.V. to get role models. It's important to have fun, and to see good things on tv, but be sure to look in your own "real live" crowd of friends for good role models, too.
To the girl who said that Hilary was teaching her that she didn't have to be a slut to do good and fun things...YEAH!!! Also, though, I was surprised to hear that, although it was good news. I was surprised when i saw the video, because i thought Hilary was dressed up pretty grown-up. I wished that she could have been dressed a little younger, so that she looked like a teenager having fun being Young, instead of a young teenager trying to be an Older teenager. Then kids would learn it's really fun and cool to like Kid stuff, and not need Grown-up stuff. Being a kid is really wonderful, and kids should be listened to, have fun, and learn that it's cool. Though, now that i'm "old" i try to act like an even older grown-up, so maybe that's just natural. :-)
I'm sorry I sound all preachy and stuff! I didn't mean to, those were just my thoughts. :)

Ok you all! listen, HILLARY SUX! SHE ISNT A REAL ACTRESS and she can sing as well as she acts! which means NOT AT ALL! i and for those of you who say they dont know how she feels- I know her! i go to camp with her and am in her cabin-(in TX) she is one snooty snoby blonde brat ! talk about mean! she ALWAYS has her food brought to the camp so she doenst have to eat the FOOD! you guys must face reality- SHE IS A SNOB go ahead- be like her- im sure all the 5 year old watchin the dis chanel will luv you! get real!

Posted by: lacy at February 21, 2003 05:31 PM

Yahh...I'm 15..and the only reason im on here is because i was looking up Orlando Bloom (the best and hottest actor that will ever live)and Justin Berfield (Reese from Malcom in the Middle) and somehow i got linked to Hillary Duff...and just thought i would let you all hear my opinion...
...i think this girl is a terrible actress..i mean, I don't mean to jump on her just because her character on the show is a "Preppy, annoying, immature for her age little school girl" but you can easily see that she needs to work on her acting skills...i mean i respect her for what she does because i too am going to try to become an actress in the future...
...But there's just something about her that makes her look like she has no clue what she is doing..
..and her singing career doesn't help that much either...again, im not trying to be rude when i say this, but when i first heard that song "I Can't Wait" during a break from that show Boy Meets World, i didn't understand what made the Disney Channel Company even think that she had enough talent to do that for a commercial..so yahh....I'm sorry Hillary if you're reading this...im sure that's not what you wanted to hear...but it just seems to me that you need a little work...

Posted by: Dawn at February 21, 2003 06:43 PM

honestly... she should just give up. sure... she can act fairly well, but she cant sing! i heard her "remix" to her song, if you even want to call it that, and its horrible! its her actual voice which stinks. in the regular song its all computer generated and it still sounds horrible. i say, she should keep acting, but definatly stop singing.

Posted by: Kristyn at February 21, 2003 07:43 PM

Lizzie Mcguire the hit t.v. series doesnt only air on the disney channel. It airs on abc as a part of one satuarday morning. Yes the show is for kids between the ages of 6 and 14. But not litle kids. It is very popular and makes the disney channel alot of money. I myself watch the show and I am 12 years old, so do all my friends. The show is cool but it all depends on how you look at it and dont comment on hillarys singing if you cant do any better yourself.

Peace Out

Posted by: Katie at February 23, 2003 09:25 AM

Ok, how do i start. Well Hillary can or cannot sing or act, but mostly all the people are saying stuff they souldn't be about her, for one you don't even know her, two hillary seems to be dong what she loves to do and three younger kids CAN be or try to be what ever they want, they will soon relize that they should be there own person. I enjoy watching her show on the disney channel, lizzie mcguire so please if you have something to say that is unappropiate for younger kids that are reading these keep it to yourself!Thanks bunches!!!

Posted by: Mary at February 24, 2003 09:33 AM

ok you guys keep saying not to diss her if you can't do any better, well hear this: i am an actress (though not to her level, yet) and also a singer. and i am completely offended that she is on t.v. and movies, while there are so many amazing actors who haven't gotten a chance. she has absolutly NO talent. i honestly had no idea before i saw her that someone could be that bad, and especially bad at not making it look like she's being told what to do. cuz all ppl in the media who can't stand up for themselves do get told what to do and say, but at least most of them can deceive ppl better than she can. god, i hope she burns.

Posted by: chelsea at February 24, 2003 04:05 PM

Hey, I live in Canada and Im 14 years old. Ok I love the show Lizzie Mcguire and I absolutly adore Hilary Duff and I think she is an awsome singer with a rockin voice! The first time I heard I cant wait I loved it and the second time I saw it on Disney Channel I recorded it right away. HILARY ROCKS!!!!!!!

Posted by: Ashley at March 2, 2003 11:21 AM

Hmm I think everyone is full of shit.. I'm sure most of the guys here just like her cuz they wanna see her in their bed at night..and the girls like her cause they wanna see themselves in her bed w/ her guys at night.

Hilary Duff. *Sighs...* Hilary 'act's on Disney's Lizzie McGuire and 'sings' on Radio Disney, etc. I personally don't think that she does either very well. But, it's still really cool that she gets to do what she likes to do. But, when you really think about it, anybody else could have been cast as Lizzie McGuire, and most of you people would say you hated that actress. Jealousy plays a part in why we are all here to rant on and on about Hilary Duff. She's pretty, yes...but weather or not she has any depth or talent is something that none of us can determine. I have a crush on Gordo (Adam Lamberg) and so I have blocked judgement on her anyway, but then again all of you probably have something about her that you are jealous about, too. In a word, Hilary is simply FAMOUS. Get over it.

Posted by: Ali at March 26, 2003 03:08 PM

Umm.. you people are so lame. It's a kid show, and a lot of kid shows suck more than Lizzie does so why don't you go rag on them?? Leave Lizzie alone, we'll see what happens to her. If she's so bad, why do a lot of teens like her? Because "They're immature..." umm yeah. Speaking of immature, "She sucks as an actor" blah blah blah...you people talk shit. That's immature. And FYI to whoever said that Hillary doesn't deserve this as much as others, WHO THE F*** cares??? She probably has hook-ups which you and others don't have. Just like almost any famous person. Deal with it! Geez.

Posted by: J-lyn at March 28, 2003 11:08 AM

Well what I say is, hillary is pretty, talented, and she is on her way to bein big. Let the girl do what she is good at. If I had the chance to do it, I would too, and anybody else would too.

Hilary is a beautiful young girl and has great talent in everything she does so lay off the comments and face the facts she is someone who everyone in this place want to be like. Noah

Hi i'm Lana and i'm 15 anyways Hilary's voice sounds a little better in her new song Why Not cuz she takes voice classes and some of the parts don't sound like her voice i think somebody else sang some of the other parts But Lalaine is still prettier and better then her!!!!

Posted by: Lana at April 6, 2003 11:38 AM

Hilary has a great voice and i think is a very talented actress. I loved her christmas cd and her hit song on the lizzie mcguire sound track. Keep up the great work Hilary. :)

hey i'm 18 and i still find some of the disney shows amusing. however, i will never say that i am a fan of hilary duff starting a musical career simply because my taste for music has changed. when i was a pre-teen i must admit that i was into music that, when i listen to it now, sounds pretty crappy.
what i'm trying to say is that someday you'll realize that the music industry is not into making music to make you feel good when you're angry/sad or appreaciate life or whatever. They are simply there to make money. Once they have a formula for what sells, they find someone with a dream and exploit them. i'm almost positive that someday, you will all grow out of whatever the disney channel or mtv or vh1 says is "good music". but don't get me wrong, occasionally, mtv gets it right. but don't sit in front of the tv like some zombie sponge (ha)taking in everything that runs across your glossy iris. think for yourself. choose your music. don't let it choose you.

Posted by: deade at April 10, 2003 04:57 PM

She's cool and all, but sometimes, u gotta just draw the line! She can't sing and many of us know that but she's doing that eiter b/c she wants more $ or more fame. Why do you think ONLY DISNEY signed her? Why do u think her music is ONLY played on RADIO DISNEY? Lalaine on the other hand has talent. If you don't beleive me, go to http://www.celebritykidz.com/lalaine, and go to the music section!

I think that you guys shouldnt be dissin hil. you have ABSOLUTLEY no idea wat she really is like. i mean, maybe singing isnt her "forte" but i think she deserves the credit for at least trying something new. if it kills her career, well that kinda sux, but at least she had fun, and if it helps her career, thats great. Im not a total fan of her singing, or her acting, but she enjoys what she does and if she canovercome the criticizm to do what she wants then good for her. if u have any comments you can email me at minimanda1@msn.com

What is wrong with you? Hillary has a great voice! And she is cute too! I am eleven years old and are smarter than you people. You can't judge something you yourself can't do! And if you don't like it, don't waste your time to type a rude remark, and our time to have to read through all of them to find positive ones. If you like Hillary e-mail me at thesnicketrapper@hotmail.com!

Posted by: Dylan at April 15, 2003 03:08 AM

okay miss stupid retard (not named because she is too scared I bet!)hillary is great. and the girl that you said sucks major dick was named Amanda not manda. and "why not" go kill yourself! you are stupid! why did you post your restarted remark 2 times? i bet you don't "suck major dick" so who the heck are you to talk?

Posted by: Dylan at April 15, 2003 03:13 AM

It makes you wonder why there aren't that many taltented child actors these days. Look at the foul mouths on these little buggers! They are 12 and 13 and talk like sailors!

You kids need you calm down, for one. For two, you need to realize that she's an actor and that her media persona isn't the same as her home life. It is part of your every right to be jeallous, but you kids take it too far.

I, personally, believe she has looks and talent. She might go far, yet, she might not. Fame comes and it goes. It has it's own natural course, let it flow freely.

Posted by: Chris at April 19, 2003 03:07 PM

Hi I just want to say that Hilary looks cute in her Why Not video unlike she usually does oh yeah I found a rare pic pf her without make-up she looks weird!!!! Oh yeah Check out Lalaine's New Journal on her official site at http://www.celebritykidz.com/lalaine and listen to her song her voice is so much more talented then Hilary's lol!!!!

Posted by: Lana at April 19, 2003 03:33 PM

Hilary hilary hilary. Everybody loves her but what is so good about her? The people who say they love her can't even spell her name right. She sometimes acts well but in Lizzie McGuire she kept on stuttering and all. Her songs require no vocal talent whatsoever like she can't even sing more than one octave. I used to be a fan but now she just annoys me. And I know everyone will say I'm jealous and hey, I probably am, who wouldn't want fame and fortune? But she doesn't have any real talent. Argh! And she's overweight. Why doesn't she go back to her natural hair color? Because blond and busty sells. That's the formula and she'll probably turn out to be a Britney or Christina skank.

Posted by: cordelia at April 20, 2003 12:46 AM

Hillary Duff is the best, no matter what anyone says and that is what I am sticking to

Posted by: Joe at April 21, 2003 06:54 AM

to cordelia:

You are right about the fact that her songs take no vocal ability, but Hillary's lyrics are the part that is the best. They really emphasise the emotions that I'm sure we all go through as teens. Hillary rules! I don't care what you say!

Posted by: Craig at April 21, 2003 12:32 PM

hey,
I live in an area where I can't get radio disney cause im too far from any station that plays it. I want to enter the "Meet Hillary Duff Sweepstakes", but i can't get the codeword of the day. Can some one give it to me?

Posted by: Lana at April 24, 2003 03:33 PM

alright. yeha i didnt even mean to get here, but since i am i'll give you my opinion. because you don't need to criticize other peoples opinions. ESPECIALLY ALL THOSE UP THERE WHO KEEP ON DOING THAT. just had to add that. i don't know hilary. i don't know if i WANT to. to be a good actress you don't have to have good looks, so i won't even say what i think of those. but, unfortunately, whether it is her fault or disney's, i thought her show started off good, but then all the media really went to her head. she even put her boyfriends in the show, which sounds just a bit stuck-up. but hey, that could've been disney's fault as well. i think hilary sounded nice when she sang, but she isn't near the best. i don't think she should've released a soundtrack, but singing for her own show is fine. her lyrics confuse me and i don't personally like them. i don't think she's that great of either an actress or singer, from what i've seen. but i don't know her. even some of the snotty people at my school can be okay, but they're insecure and everything. everyone has problems and i HATE when people stereotype one another. but anyway if people don't like my opinion, that's ok. i don't like some other people's on here. if you like her and look up to her, peachy for u. all i can say is personally i think that her show went down the drain when her head got too big. that's my two cents.

Posted by: imjusthere at April 24, 2003 07:40 PM

Hi! I'm a 24 y/o fem here who commends this child for her incredible gift. I enjoy Hilary's acting and singing. Just not to the obssessive point, as most of our young ones seem to be. What does everyone think of her latest song, "Why Not"? For that movie thats coming up 5-2-03 based on the Lizzie McGuire show. I just heard it for the first time on http://disney.go.com/disneypictures/lizzie/video/index.html and thought it was cute. She's just another talented young child who's riding the train of fame as far as she can go. Instead of being a dreamer, she's a doer. Nothing wrong with that. More power to her!

Posted by: Raevella at April 25, 2003 08:48 PM

http://www.celebritykidz.com/lalaine
Oh, how cute. I didn't know Lalaine could sing. They have this song up called "You Wish" based on a Disney movie of the same title. Doesn't say a whole lot about the movie, but I'm searching.. And is it me, or does Lalaine kind of remind you of the young girl who played "Punkie Brooster" way back in the day? When she's dressed up as "Miranda" on "Lizzie McGuire". LoL, did I even spell "Punkie Brooster" right? It's been such a long time since I last seen it.

Posted by: Raevella at April 25, 2003 09:19 PM

i think she is very bad!!!! and needs to keep her day job as an actress,she is a good actress and all but not a good singer ,sorry but its the sad truth :(!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HILARY STOP SINGING ITS FOR YOUR OWN GOOD,and we all know the only reason you have a new movie is to try and BOOST YOUR SINGING TALANT THAT YOU DONT HAVE SORRY.

Posted by: Lana at April 27, 2003 12:19 PM

You're right that its kinda wierd that people want to be her, and you should be happy with what you have, but you should still try your hardest to reach your goal. But if you're goal is to be Hilary Duff, than give it up. lol.

Posted by: sara m. at April 30, 2003 01:33 PM

look, hilary duff...just annoys me so much. Seriously, she cannot sing for her life. So what if she's living out her dreams? So many of us could if we wanted to, we just do not get the chance because of issues like money or getting noticed. I don't mind her as an actress, but i really think that she should not sing, and she's just another Britney wannabe. I like the music i listen to not because it's "cool", but i can relate to it and they sound good. And i do not like hilary's songs at all. Hilary's lyrics? I didn't know she wrote her own songs...so that's why they confused me!

Posted by: amanda at April 30, 2003 05:29 PM

Posted by: Lana at April 30, 2003 09:38 PM

Posted by: sara m. at May 1, 2003 01:24 PM

So what if you relate to hilary's songs or not lots of other people do. I dont think she wants to be a Britney wannbe she just wants to try something new. If you people dont like her songs then just dont listen to them its that simple. Theres lots of people out there admire her for whats she's doing and she's acomplished a lot. Ho

Posted by: Jillian at May 2, 2003 08:36 PM

to all you haters out there who are all "hilary is not talented and sucks, blah blah blah," you can just shut your damn pieholes because she is amazing. i challenge any one of you to make it where she is now, and be as successful as she. when that day comes, you may be as critical as you want of her. until then, respect the fact that she is going to be her generations greatest actress ever, and perhaps singer too. she has a great voice, and an even greater heart. and god bless her for having to put up with rats like you all who are so jealous you will sit at home on your asses and downplay the incredible success of this talented young woman. hilary, keep on truckin.

Posted by: at May 5, 2003 04:03 PM

alright....hiliary this, hiliary that....do you really think that hiliary is going to come on here and read your comments and take it to the head....HEO NAH.....so do her a favor for the people that cant be on her level.....just lay off her nuts......cause if i was her....i know definetly that you people with no life are jealous....and how can you say she cant sing....did you sign her in a record deal....NOT!!!

Posted by: doesITmatter at May 5, 2003 06:56 PM

My name is Andrew and I am 14 years old. Listen here Hilary is very talented. What are you peoples problem. Have you ever sat down to hear her sing. She is not i bad singer and take my advice because i have been playing music for eight years and soon will get a record deal that my granddad will help me get. You people must be the people who listen to heavy metal or just jealous because she is so good looking and youll cant. If any of youll went on stage for the first time or around your beginning and started singing and stunk really bad, i would not boo you of stage, i would clap and pat you on the back when you were finish. Just give her some time and dont be talking about her if you cant even sing yourself.Think about it

seee.......ANDREW is giving positive comments about hiliary. Yah should listen to him and take his advice, and his right.......give her a little time to become better....but anyways, hiliary is coming up and thats all we can say....i like her character on TV but sure i dont know her in real life.....but who cares......just as long she makes lizzy mcguire a cool even though clumsy sometimes, chick!!!!!......keep it real.

Posted by: doesITmatter at May 8, 2003 03:18 PM

Finally some people who dont say hilary sucks. She has already acomlplished so much and she going after her dreams. At least she has the courage to go after her dreams. Maybe you people think she cant sing or act and if u think that thats fine. There are LOTS of other people out there who like her and look up to her as a role model who is going after her dreams. Besides she have to be tough to stand a hear all the negitive comments some of you give her.

Why don't you just send her an email at hillaryduff2003@netlane.com and tell her how you feel. Besides your the ones acting all big and powerful. The way i see it you are just a bunch of lower than low DICK SUCKING BASTARDS!!!

Posted by: doesITmatter at May 15, 2003 04:47 PM

Im 12 I dont know why some of u talk bad things of Hillary I think that she is fabulous she has talent and much more. For all those who say that her songs and series dont make sense you are wrong because their are alot of things that I relate to and may sometimes not fell real. For me she is my romodle and kids like me look up to her. Mabe in real life she is not the same as in the series but i still like her becaus i know that she has a good voice and to be a good actress have a good atitude. In the sries I think that Maranda should sing in an epasod, but for the rest its fine.For all that I have said I still think that people shouldnt be talking bad thins about Hillary because no one likes to hear bad things about themselfs that maby arent true.

Posted by: Gbriela at May 17, 2003 01:24 PM

for all of u that think ur better than hillary duff...tell me one thing..why aren't u up there?!?

Posted by: at May 18, 2003 04:44 PM

hilllary duff is absolutly amazing, a role model kids of all ages should look up too. shes gettin somewherre fast. my name is sakate wadhawan and im 16 and live in canada. i am hilary duffs biggest fan for sure. she is perfect role mpodel because she doesnt sing continuously like britney spears about crap and dresses appropriatley too. if she stays like this and image doesnt change like christina agulleria and britney's has, she will remain excellant. my biggest dream is to meet Hillary, or even to talk to her so hillary idf you are reading ths would you please write me an email, id appreciate that and we could possibly keep in touch.

Hey, everyone i'm 13. Hilary duff may not be everyones favorite, people have there own opinuions so theres no need to fight over it. We all have diffrent ears and hearing soe of us might think she is good some might think she is bad. Half of you dont even know how to sing so how do you know. I frankley like Hilarys songs and love her t.v show. Her songs actually have a meaning and there not all about sex and drugs weed and pot like most of the hip- hop, rap songs are about. I love hilary duff, she is probebly won of my top ten idols shes only 15, and she probebly made a million and has many adoirng fans. Thats the life:). Anyways all of you who like Lalaine better than hilary need singing lesson. She sings back into her through and doesnt prounonce her vowels(as my singing teacher says) hillary may do that sometimes to but i do sometimes to. I love lalaine to ned objections on that though. If u do not like these opinuions keep it to yourself. No need to fight thats how wars begn. Keep it real!

Hannah(i love adam lamberg)

Lying Media Bastards is both a radio show and website. The show airs Mondays 2-4pm PST on KillRadio.org, and couples excellent music with angry news commentary. And the website, well, you're looking at it.

Both projects focus on our media-marinated world, political lies, corporate tyranny, and the folks fighting the good fight against these monsters.

Media Mambo

The Great Indecency Hoax- last week, we wrote about how the "massive outcry" to the FCC about a racy Fox TV segment amounted to letters from 20 people. This week, we look at the newest media scandal, the infamous "naked back" commercial. On Monday Night Football, last week, ABC aired an ad for it's popular "Desperate Housewives" TV show, in which one of the actresses from the show attempted to seduce a football player by removing the towel she was wearing to bare her body to him. All the audience saw, however, was her back. No tits, no ass, no crotch, just her back.

No one complained.

The next Wednesday, Rush Limbaugh told his shocked viewers how the woman had appeard in the commercial "buck naked".

Then, the FCC received 50,000 complaints. How many of them actually saw this commercial is anyone's guess.

The article also shows the amazing statistics that although the Right is pretending that the "22% of Americans voted based on 'moral values'" statistic shows the return of the Moral Majority, this is actually a huge drop from the 35% who said that in the 2000 election or the 40% who said that in 1996 (when alleged pervert Bill Clinton was re-elected). This fact is so important I'm going to mention it over in the main news section too.

Brian Williams may surprise America- Tom Brokaw's replacement anchor, Brian Williams, dismissed the impact of blogs by saying that bloggers are "on an equal footing with someone in a bathroom with a modem." Which is really funny, coming out of the mouth of a dude who's idea of journalism is to read words out loud off a teleprompter. Seriously, if parrots were literate, Brian Williams would be reporting live from the line outside the soup kitchen.

In related news, Tom Brokaw has quit NBC Nightly News, and it appears that unlike his predecessor, the new guy can speak without slurring words like a drunk.

PR Meets Psy-Ops in War on Terror- in February of 2002, Donald Rumsfeld announced the creation of the Office of Strategic Influence, a new department that would fight the war on terror through misinformation, especially by lying to journalists. Journalists were so up in arms about this that the Pentagon agreed to scrap the program.

Don't you think that an agency designed to lie to the public might lie about being shut down, too?

This article gives some examples about the US military lying to the press for propaganda and disinformation purposes.

Tavis Smiley leaving NPR in December- African-American talk show host Tavis Smiley is opting to not renew his daily talk show on National Public Radio. He criticized his former employers for failing to: "meaningfully reach out to a broad spectrum of Americans who would benefit from public radio but simply donít know it exists or what it offers ... In the most multicultural, multi-ethnic and multiracial America ever, I believe that NPR can and must do better in the future." He's 100% correct. NPR is white. Polar bear eating a marshmallow at the mayonaise factory white. And the reason it's so white is that it is trying to maintain an affluent listener base (premoniantly older white folks) who will donate money to their stations. This is a great paradox of American public broadcasting, that they have a mandate to express neglected viewpoints and serve marginalized communities, but those folks can't donate money in the amounts that the stations would like to see.

U.S. Muslim Cable TV Channel Aims to Build Bridges- it sounds more positive than it is "Bridges TV" seems to simultaneously be a cable channel pursuing an affluent American Muslim demographic, and a way of building understanding and tolerance among American non-Muslims who might happen to watch the channel's programming. I was hoping it would be aimed more at Muslim's worldwide, but it ain't. Still, I'd be interested in seeing how their news programs cover the issues.

Every Damned Weblog Post Ever- it's funny cuz it's true.

Wikipedia Creators Move Into News- Wikipedia is a free online encyclopedia, created collectively by thousands of contributors. It's one of those non-profit, decentralized, collective, public projects that show how good the internet can be. Now, the Wikipedia founders are working on a similar project to create a collaborative news portal, with original content. Honestly, it's quite similar to IndyMedia sites (which reminds me, happy 5th birthday, IndyMedia!). I'll admit, I'm a bit skeptical about the Wikinews project, though. IndyMedia sites work because they're local, focused on certain lefty issues, and they're run by activists invested in their beliefs. I'm not sure what would drive Wikinews or how it would hang together.

CBS, NBC ban church ad inviting gays- the United Church of Christ created a TV ad which touts the church's inclusion, even implying that they accept homosexuals into their congregation. Both CBS and NBC are refusing to air the ad. This is not too surprising, as many Americans are uncomfortable about homosexuality, and because TV networks are utter cowards. But CBS' explanation for the ban was odd:

"Because this commercial touches on the exclusion of gay couples...and the fact that the executive branch has recently proposed a Constitutional amendment to define marriage as a union between a man and a woman, this spot is unacceptable for broadcast."

Whoa, what? First of all, the ad does not mention marriage at all. Second, since when do positions opposite of the Executive Branch constitute "unacceptable"? This doesn't sound like "we're not airing this because it's controversial", this sounds like "we're afraid of what the President might say."
