Open letter to the star of Herbie: Fully Loaded

Hey Lindz....
Sometimes you say things, and as soon as it leaves your mouth, you know it is going to come back to haunt you. This is especially true if you are in the public eye. In a recent interview, you begged and pleaded to be taken seriously as an actress, and claimed you were “no longer a party girl, like Tara Reid.” Well, aside from the fact you are serious about acting, and somehow STILL signed on to do Herbie: Fully Loaded, you are back in the news for storming out of your own premiere.

You recorded a bubblegum piece of overproduced piece of rubbish for the film. It was supposed to have been played in a scene during the movie, but it was bumped to the end credits. This infuriated serious actress you, because “no one stays for the credits to hear a song.” Not to disagree with the same astute mind that said she didn’t think declaring yourself a republican or democrat (in an election focused on the young voters)was a good idea because it limited half of your fan base, but the song in the end credits is often one of the best. The song, “Trapeze Swinger” by Iron & Wine, played as during the end credits of “In Good Company”. Not only did I sit through the credits to hear the song, the song became one of the most sought after downloads in the weeks after the release of the movie.

That is beside the point. If you want to be taken seriously as an actress, you should start acting like an adult. You don’t storm out of your own premiere over some junior high type bullsh&t.; Do you really think people are buying your records for your talent, or because you are a celeb in the news. Do you think your former gal pal Paris Hilton’s record will sell because she really knows how to make songs “hot” or because 90% of America has seen her naked, and assumes they will again? If you want to be taken seriously, separate yourself from that kind of behavior. The 13-year olds will buy the Herbie soundtrack to hear your song. You will still get paid, lots and lots of cash to sing songs that make my ears bleed. I mean, the kids are still supporting Backstreet, so I think it proves that hype sells.
