Sad Times: 2009, The End Of Mutya's career
My Beloved Mutya in happier times (cool chola - tattooed tit and hoops)
I was crazy to love her, but I've reconnected my mind. Needless to say, I am shocked to find out that Mutya Buena - the EX- Mrs. XO, My Beloved Mutya - has entered the Celebrity Big Brother House with the likes of LaToya Jackson and Minifucking Me. Really? Who manages her? Has she lost her record deal? Could it not have been that celebrity jungle thing where you at least get to see them have moments of small triumph after eating a bug?
You'll remember - or, conversely, you won't - that I had great hopes for Mutya when she left Sugababes. This girl is one of the best singers of our generation. Unique, emotional, beautiful. But the sad fact must be acknowledged here and now: Mutya is a chav! A chola girl! There, I found the strength to finally say it. On her myspace page (find it yourself), she declares "My passion is music!" Really? Seems to me, Buena, from the "personal" photos displayed on the site, you most enjoy hangin' in da club. Where is your baby? Where is your band?
We all know now that her debut album, Real Girl, was a flaming turd, bar like 4 great songs.* And now this travesty. She is sure to cause drama in the house. Catfights and spotlights. Best case scenario, she's not the flaming bitch we suspect she is. I have little hope: this is the kind of girl who constantly demands respect while never earning it. Let me be wrong.
Mutya, it was great while it lasted, but you need to stomp your totally mint condition [cough] tattooed thighs back to the chippie in Kingsbury, or wherever it is you "hang." I'll take my whiskey sour and play Ace Reject and the beautiful, sad Maya (for your sister) over and over. Now the conversation's over and there's nothing more to say. I had time with you, so hear me now: I won't stay. It's my turn to walk away!
The Real Mutya, today:
