Okay, hold it. Stop the presses. I don't get fans at times. I really, really don't. I mean, yeah, she's Lucy Lawless, but besides being known the Xena fandom and Battlestar Galactica fandom, Lucy is pretty much another TV actor who is multi-talented. She doesn't have name recognition.
Yeah, okay. Neither does the guy from Fresh Prince, but that's not the point. The point is that unlike the guy from Fresh Prince and unlike Leah Thomspon Back to the Future and Caroline in the City, Lucy is one of those people who've only vaguely heard about.
Her fault? I've said before, I'm not the person to be judge of that. Do I think she could do better? Sure, there are things I wish she wouldn't have done (Eurotrip), but in the end, Lucy said herself this was too good to pass up. It's a chance to sing with some of the greats of the music business. And it's an opportunity for Lucy to cash in the ever growing popularity of reality TV. And for that, I applaud Lucy go jumping into reality TV, even if she did blast it in 2005.
Anyways, back to the issue. I've been reading a various message boards and mailing lists, that people are absolutely SHOCKED that Lucy isn't getting more coverage in the promotional advertisements on TV. Some have even gone so far to as to put some conpsiracies into the mix --- oh, it's because she supports gay rights --- grasp for straws much, people?
The fact is, Lucy is just a portion of the entire lineup to be featured. I mean, Cheech Marin isn't mentioned, neither is Hal Sparks and a handful of others who are also going to be showing off their singing talent. They aren't mentioned in the advertisements on TV and you don't see people getting all bent out of shape out over it.
Only in the Xenaverse can people be so ... I don't know .... LOONEY TOONS!
Oh, btw, when I said I won't vote for Lucy if she's not the best. I meant it. But I also won't vote anyone who's better.
But then, you know... it is Lucy... I might just vote for the heck of it! :D
