This morning I came across new “British singing sensation” David Jordan on early morning breakfast show, GMTV.
Presenter, Andrew Castle, introduced David as being “Britain’s answer to Justin Timberlake” and my response to that was ‘whatever Andrew!!!’. If any thing he would probably just be the poor man’s Justin Timberlake, just like Mystique were the poor man’s Destiny’s Child and Billie was the poor man’s Britney Spears.
But I stopped what I was doing and watched David’s performance…..
Now as I watched – CRINGING, because at one point during an incredibly ‘camp’ performance, David insisted on dropping the odd, slightly revised Michael Jackson move, mixed in with a little Prince (accept not as sexy) and Terence Trent D’Arby (remember him folks), and even attempted to seductively rub his private parts…. (shaking head)
David’s ‘Alternative’ sound, theatrics, peculiar dancing, black nail polish, style of dress and campness, just left me thinking ‘how can he be Britain’s answer to Timberlake? Which label publicist came up with that foolishness and then passed it on to Andrew, so he could then go on to repeat a blatant lie to the nation?
And is this the type of ‘style/vibe’ black British male artists are going to have to adopt from now on, just to get a deal and a spot on breakfast television?
Lord knows nothing else seems to be working for them at this present time…….
Check out David’s video and track ‘Sun Goes Down’….
