Ricki-Lee Robs Britney, Sinks To New Low

Ricki-Lee's descent into irrelevance continues apace with the latest single from Fear & Freedom. The weight-loss spokeswoman has always been a basic bitch but - until recently - her music has been flawless. I still love the sticky-fingered diva's first two albums and ranked "Raining Diamonds" as one of the best singles of 2011. Even "Do It Like That" (AKA the world's cheapest Beyoncé rip off) was palatable in its remixed form but there's no excusing "Crazy" (AKA the world's cheapest Britney rip offf). Seriously, this is just "Till The World Ends" - only with cheaper production, a far less catchy vocal hook and worse choreography.

I don't get it. Ricki-Lee has many failings but she can sing like a demon and has attitude to burn. Why is she copying international heavyweights and hiding her killer pipes under layers of autotune? I'd take the catchy pop/rock songs from her (scrapped) third album over this shit any day. The video doesn't help. Ricki-Lee looked better when she had the body of a front-row forward. Her face is too gaunt and the blond hair makes her look ancient. I'm not impressed with the mental hospital set-up either. It's been done a million times before  - most recently on Lady Gaga's "Marry The Night" - and straight-jacket dance routines have been regularly used by divas since Kylie's Intimate & Live performace of "Limbo".

Everything about "Crazy" is tired, desperate and deritive. It's time for Ricki-Lee to take several aisles of seats.

2/10

Hi it's Ricki Lee here, why are you so rude about me and my music? I am trying to empower people through song and all you do is be rude. I am a gay spokeswoman and this is the way you repay me? I find that insulting.

so because he is gay is obligated to like your music?
