Charlie!


So Francy just sent me his latest marketing image where he looks great as usual. He thought it was very MAYBELINE or REVLON and I agree though more specifically I thought it read more CHARLIE by Revlon and even more specifically THIS COMMERCIAL. Which I LOVED as a kid! I remember being home from school and running in the tv room to see this ad on MTV and singing along with it imagining I was SPECIAL NEEDS and TONE DEAF cindy crawford with my DEMENTED great uncle MR LITTLE RICHARD. It so much fun because no matter how bad you are youre still doing a DEAD ON impersonation of CINDY and that makes you feel like you have a TALENT.

Francy and Erik are going to have to duke it out for who gets to be Little Richard though. I dont think any queen ever wanted to be Cindy. It was always whoever said LINDA first got her, and then the next person would just say CHRISTY and then say she was the true beauty anyways even though they wanted to be Linda too :( Christy is not a bad second place though. They did make the mannequins at the MET based off her...

lol ewwwwwww, stephanie.?! ..youre a SLUT. Axel Rose made her take a DUMP in a CAT BOX...so I heard. It must have been AWESOME, you know she did it in heels and ground them in and got comfy... I give her credit for that maneuver, but I always thought she was a tad skaggy.... usually thats a plus but i dunno. she never did it for me. Helena is what I call myself after eating to much salt cause my head gets even WIDER then it usually is, I go from KOREAN MOON to HELENA CHRISTENSEN.

I had forgotten but now remember this commercial and her total off key singing. Man!--Couldn't they have gotten Martha Wash to be a singing double for her?! It was the 90s after all, Martha had already doubled for so many already--doing Cindy would have been a real favor to us. As for any Charlie/revlon for Francy--I think the most airbrushed ridic thing is what they did to his head tat. It borders on the "Boy George head makeup" state line. Or maybe they were going for the Michelle Pfifer Catwoman smokey eyes look for his tat. Meh. They still look good though.

WHO LET THIS GO ON THE AIR???!!! With all the money this company was pumping into Cindy and Little Richard didn't SOMEBODY go, "uh...can we just dub her?". I think this ad killed the Charlie line.
