Chloe Lattanzi - Pop Trash Queen 2008

I don't even have to wait until the end of the year to christen Chloe Lattanzi the new queen of pop trash. I've always liked Olivia's insane daughter but since the beginning of MTV's "Rock The Cradle", my admiration has reached an entirely new level. This amazing diva has really captured my heart with her charismatic performances and her general inability to keep a lid on the crazy. A couple of weeks ago I wrote about Chloe's first two performances, well since then she's gone on the destroy her mother's classic "I Honestly Love You" in the most fabulous way imaginable and also managed to turn Korn's "Freak On A Leash" into a demented goth ballad while rolling around on the floor like a disabled hooker! Poor Chloe has been panned by the judges every week and ridiculed across the internet (despite his loud protestations, I'm convinced D Listed's Michael K is a HUGE fan!) but she keeps on scraping through the rounds. Chloe has now reached the final 5 contestants and her fate depends on the viewers' reaction to her mind blowing cover of Britney's "Toxic".

Car crash television seriously doesn't get any better than this. The clip begins with a visit to the teepee that Chloe's father lives in. No wonder Chloe is ten kinds of crazy - her father lives in a tent playing the didgeridoo! The excruciating look on Olivia's face says it all, you just know she's wishing the ground would swallow her up. (I highly recommend you watch the full hilarious clip of Chloe's teepee visit here - It explains a lot!) Chloe is then told she has to sing "Toxic" by Britney's ex-manager and bursts into tears and keeps on crying all through rehearsals. My favourite bit is when she breaks down and sobs "dude, I'm not Britney Spears"! They might share the same level of mental stability but Chloe goes on to prove her point by blowing Britney out of the water with a truly magnificent rendition of "Toxic". I love eveything about this - Chloe's demented posing on the staircase, her bizarre interaction with the hot guy tied to the chair, the gravelly quality of her voice and most of all, her bad dancing!

I really hope this stunning talent makes it through another elimination. I think people are connecting with Chloe in a big way. Her rawness is just so appealing. From the teepee footage it's painfully clear that Chloe is simply not equipped for the real world, let alone the entertainment business. Paradoxically, that's exactly what makes her so endearing. What you see is what you get and I think I'm in love!

Hey Jonathon, I really wish this show was broadcast in Australia. The clips I've seen have been amazing! I can't stop laughing about Chloe's teepee adventure. Her dad is the biggest stoner I've ever seen! I'm so happpy that America is embracing our crazy Chloe. She had better fucking win because I want her album!

Well, I've been keeping my eye on this amazing talent ever since you posted Delicious, but now I'm more than ever intrigued! I hope she wins the show - to be honest, I can't believe she's still in it! People must like her since she had the lowest score last week.

LOL @ Mr Lattanzi! You have to wonder how Chloe was concieved in the 80s. You just know that Olivia was high as shit when when it happened in that teepee...

Oh my god, that is classic. I'm all for hot guys tied to chairs :P And look at the picture you posted at the top of this post?! She is certainly working her oral skills on the phallic microphone. There is some lucky guy out there for her :P!

Jesus, this twat looks like she's had her face carved up more than her mom!

Chloe looks more like Pete Burns every time I see her, I think she's channeling his singing style too, for sure! I LOVE her and Livvy's face looks suitably tight for the occasion. Who remembers that shit movie they made together???

Chloe made it through to the final round and is the hot topic on MTV's message board. Basically people either LOVE her or think she's the most useless twat ever to pick up a microphone! Clearly those people need hearing aids because Chloe's golden pipes are a gift from above. I hope she wins!

Hey guys, I'm so upset that Chloe didn't win the competition! She is a truly unique talent and I hope she still manages to get a record deal out of this.
