It helps to be talented if you're going to be annoying and difficult... see Elton John's "Tantrums and Tiaras" do***entary.
Of course, Elton has been making albums since the late 1960s... he gets to be a *****, because he's earned the right.
And he's given millions to AIDS research.
Avril used to be marketed as a "country" act by her record company before the whole "skater punk" character was developed.
Wouldn't you love to have here sitting next to someone like, oh, Patti Smith, and not know who they were?
