wow... shoulda stayed in school and been a half assed singer/pin up girl...
She's neither. She's an entertainer, and one of the most proficient of our time.
Most people don't listen to music or watch videos for artistic singing ability. Just like most people don't go to movies to critique the character development. People go to these things to be entertained. She's doing that in spades, and people are happy to lay down their money for that. KISS, Madonna, lots of examples.
That's why there's so many great artists that are never heard of. It's because nobody cares. Nothing virtuous about not understanding your target market.
