Afaik she has a criminal record does she not?

And is really not all that talented... unless one considers the ability to mime being a talent.

And yet she is constantly held up as the nation's sweetheart etc etc wtf?

yanbu. yep, she's pretty, but in a plastic doll like sort of way.

YANBU.

She is pretty, but I'd bet my midmorning coffee that any of us could look just as good with a personal trainer, stylist, make-up artist, yada yada...

Looks aside, I think she is hideous. As my DH says - beauty is only skin deep but ugliness goes right to the bone!

She is so sobeautiful I can barely stand to look at her, she is just too luminous blush and perhaps I read too much Heat magazine but she seems to have grown up over the last few years and all the crap she has been through with Ashley was just awful.

She's beautiful and people love to worship and worship beauty in particular.

I posted a while ago about how teenage girls I knew wrote about her as the most inspirational woman ever. They had to choose one for a class project. These were intelligent, thoughtful 14 year olds. I thought this was rather concerning until someone pointed out that it's easy to judge as an adult!

Their point was that she had overcome huge odds in order to do so well. She could easily have become involved in drugs like others on her estate etc. They cited she had graduated from the Royal Ballet school - I didn't know that. Turns out she did a summer camp there and left early as she was bullied but guess she still tried.

My thoughts are it is her prettiness that sets her apart. If she was down to earth and could sing as well as she can but looked rather average she simply wouldn't be where she is now.

She has dimples....<shrugs>

YANBU.
DH and DS keep telling me how lovely she is, and I keep pointing out that she beat up a toilet attendant. Yes, fair enough, everyone makes mistakes, but have you ever left someone looking like this?

YABNU. She is a dreadful individual, has very little singing talent and lacks social graces.

after seeing how she used her position to have a go at hapless Wagner on Saturday night, I agree she is nothing more than a self absorbed bully.

GlitteryBalls Mon 22-Nov-10 11:01:36

I don't get it either. There are plenty of stunning, successful women out there that I admire but I just don't see it with her. Doesn't do it for me sorry. Granted, she's not ugly, but she's not THAT great.

She's pretty, rose from a council estate/life of grime to win a TV talent show, was in a hugely successful girl group, married an England football 'star' etc etc - all very Cinderella isn't it? Except the 'happily ever after' bit involved hubby being a tosser very publically, divorce & star on TV's biggest show & (hopefully) a move to USA.

Her main problem is she is completely overcooked/over exposed/overdone now.

She can't sing very well & without her XFactor "status" driving the publicity machine I bet her 'solo' career would have been much more a la Nadine Coyle than number one records.

I watched the Piers Morgan interview with my mum and she said she liked her following that as she felt that she had a lot of the same values as she (my mum) was brought up with. She works hard, is very close to her family, she believed in trying to work on her marriage etc etc. I like her, I think that she's a better role model that Katie Price or Kerry Katona and her new single is pretty catchy.

I can't get too worked up about it either way though.

tillywee Mon 22-Nov-10 17:41:37

Yanbu...yeah she's pretty but that's about it, tbh my arse has more personality and smiles more than her.

Dolittlest Mon 22-Nov-10 17:43:35

She's really pretty and has shagged-married-and eventually pushed off a cliff a footballer. That's what the yoof want in a sleb these days, innit?

usualsuspect Mon 22-Nov-10 17:44:08

Shes talentless ...I have no idea why anyone would spend good money on the shite albums she makes

DoodlingPomBear Mon 22-Nov-10 17:50:09

I have been wanting to ask that question for ages. I find it quite hard with all of these in the media women to believe that they are role models, for what? I agree that she has pulled herself into a charmed life albeit with some not very nice twists and turns (I wouldn't wish infidelity on anyone but it seems to be a footballers "thang"). However, can't really see Girls Aloud as talented - they were manufactured and groomed and have now been disgarded as all girl and boy bands usually are. I think the role model aspect of her life is quite sad, it gives everyone the impression that they can go in a talent show, join a girl band, become famous, marry a footballer, sell their wedding to OK. It isn't that far off from the Kerry Katona's and Katie Prices is it?

None of the above talents have been achieved through hard work and learning, she is a lucky girl who was mouldable by Cowell and his cronies to make him money. I think sets a bad example to people. If I have to have a role model in this arena it would have to be Charlotte Church who is talented, but frankly I hope my DD grows up with more cerebrial role models. Hate to say it but I would prefer a Chelsea Clinton to a Cheryl Cole (God Forbid!grin)

I also think it's funny when these women marry footballers to enhance their media profile and their "brand" and then boo hoo when they cheat. They're footballers ffs!

NinkyNonker Mon 22-Nov-10 18:02:48

Yanbu. Pathetically sad inditement that she is a role model. Dh thinks she is odd looking.

eviscerateyourmemory Mon 22-Nov-10 18:05:54

YANBU.
Pretty maybe, but she doesnt seem like a nice person at all.

JoBettany Mon 22-Nov-10 18:10:38

YANBU. I don't like the image she projects. I don't think she is a good 'role model' either - far from it.

nancydrewrocked Mon 22-Nov-10 18:15:56

She's the ultimate package girl - nothing exceptional about the individual parts (looks, body, background, personality, talent) but the sum total is a nice package.

Was very unimpressed with her lack of grace towards wagner on Saturday - though even SC looked a bit embarassed by the way her and DM laid into him.

tummysgottogo Mon 22-Nov-10 19:20:42

Beat up a toilet attendant AND called them a "jigaboo".

So she has a problem with something Wagner said. What does she do? Tell him off on public television.

Blagh. Nice girl hmm

tummysgottogo Mon 22-Nov-10 19:23:56

And....have done some work with a pop music producer. I was astonished that I was the one who ended up writing the songs, the producer created the sounds and then presented this to the pretty people stars, who then say yes or no and do some autotuned vocals to it.

GlitteryBalls Mon 22-Nov-10 19:35:16

And I thought it was pretty pathetic that she made all the other judges act all cold towards Jamiroquai (know how they all usually kiss the guest acts arses adn give them standing ovations? Well they didn't even clap) because apparently Jay Kay had slagged her off or something... Grow up dear.
