She wants to make the move from pop to more indie-sounding music. In order to get that kind of credibility, she needs to roughen up her image. Dating a bad boy would be a quick way for her to get there. That would be a HUGE mistake. And you are definitely NOT going to see them making out, doing shots, and getting tattoos together! You are going to assume this means that they are dating. And your perception of her will change based on this. There is no formal contract yet.
We love good P. He gets a big boost in his visibility, she gets to roughen up her image just a little bit, and nobody has to get their hands dirty!
Meanwhile, both of their fan bases will go crazy with speculation for the entire duration of the faux relationship leading right up to her next concert tour. He cheats, she find out, she threatens to leave, he sweet talks his way back into her good graces and vows to be faithful. He can act like the sexiest and most charming man when he wants to!
Here's our cast of characters for this rumpus: She's also mostly crazy. This B lister is more talented than all of them combined, but mostly watches it all unfold. This A lister is just weird. This D lister is obnoxious. They flew in a special producer to work with the group in order to pull it off in less than 24 hours.
Everyone was game, but the only two that could pull off the song were the weird A-lister and the B-lister. Actually, the B-lister just blew everyone away and the producers considered just letting her do it. The D-lister had an exceptionally hard time with the arrangement and kept throwing mini-tantrums throughout rehearsals about her monitors, finding it hard to sing with the other two because they couldn't 'find her note' and other various catastrophes.
There was a bit of an argument over who would sing the bridge. The D-lister outright demanded the part. The producer wanted the B-lister to carry it, with the A-lister singing harmony and the D-lister chiming in for background vocals. The D-lister was having nunna that so she just belted out the bridge right over the B-lister.
The A-lister freaked out and went on a tirade over how unprofessional and rude the D-lister was and threatened to pull out of the number altogether if she wasn't removed.
You don't fucking sing over insert B-lister's name! Trisha Yearwood Weird A lister: Lady Gaga or Cindy Lauper D lister: She dictates the terms of the arrangement. Like the most efficient business deal. Sometimes the men are younger. And they never tell because, well, being professional about it is probably the only way they can imagine doing anything as well as she does.
