Comeback another day
The newspaper is my radio. I don't dislike reading about pop stars so much as hearing them, and everything I need to know I can get from their getups. So go ahead, show me the shoes, the shirt, the haircut - just spare me the music. Anyway, news has reached me about somebody named Joss Stone. She had a hit record, apparently, then got into trouble with drugs and entered rehab. Now she's booked into casinos alongside bands like 38 Special and Quiet Riot. This may be the quickest transition ever from new talent, to troubled star, to reformed nostalgia act.
