I still find it very odd how she up and fell off the face of the earth for what felt like six months right after Malibu came out, because it felt like the intention was for it to be a lead single. In retrospect that was probably the beginning of the slide into the weird, creatively-indecisive place her career is at now (to say nothing of...well, the rest of it)
This all feels very much like the spinning of the the karmic wheel.
When she worshiped Paris Hilton, that told me all I need to know about Kim. Incredibly shallow individual. She can make a good sounding bop, but her music will never grow beyond the derivative and superficial because she has no depth as a person. She really sticks out like a sore thumb in a pop world where many artists are trying to do something beyond bubblegum. Or they're trying to turn bubblegum on its head.
