There are some redeeming factors, though...like that see through net outfit Brittney wore on that album cover...:wub:(My bold)
Yup. Disney Corp's problem has been that they do fine with young kids, females up to about age 12. Boys tend to drop out sooner - the singing/dancing/performing thing isn't driven far enough into boys' life expectations yet - & we can hope it never is.
Disney keeps tinkering with their formula trying to reach beyond the 12-year-old girl who wants to be in show biz, in front of the camera. What used to be Disney's problem is now also the problem for M. Cyrus, B. Spears, & a host of all near-identical former 12-year-old girls who wanted to perform for the camera. They're spat out like cookies from a cookie-cutter. Empty calories, the lot, & there's simply no disguising it.
Disney & its avatars will just have to get used to unplanned obsolescence - it's a fact of life for these wanna-be wonder children - & it's not going to change. TV is a voracious devourer of talent, of whatever caliber. In the biz, it's quantity, not quality.
Witness the triumph of Hanna-Barbara over Fleischer cartoons.
