HEY FANS, ARE YOU READY FOR THE SHOCK? SHE'S LIVING PROOF, THE GIRL CAN'T ROCK!!!,
This review is from: Hilary Duff - The Concert - The Girl Can Rock (DVD)
I noticed this dvd when it was first released. As i picked it up in a music store, i had a question mark boggling in my mind, "THE GIRL CAN ROCK?". I resisted. I put it down and walked away. But Hilary knows how to draw her fans in. A week later, i owned it. I had to see if she could rock. I'm sorry to say, no she can't rock.
As the 50 minute concert came to an end after i first watched it, i wondered why the title is "The Girl Can Rock". I'm sorry to all the devotees who have have praised the crap out of Hilary in the "live" concert, but she mimes! Yes, she really does! I don't know how the majority of reviewers on this site have said "It's live!", "She rocks!". Have these people seen this concert? They say she doesn't mime. But theres proof everywhere that she's miming! In the last chorus of "COME CLEAN", Hilary bangs her head (ROCK!) but listen to her voice! It's sublte and smooth, no glitchs or anything! And if any of the reviewers here have her album (Metamorphosis) or even heard it, they should know she's using pre-recorded vocals. Her vocals are EXACTLY the same as the CD. It's not live. Why does she mime? It's not like she's putting on a "showgirl" show. She doesn't even dance! All she does is walk from side to side of the stage.
Overall, the concert was a let down! The closest thing to interesting on this dvd were the special features, behind the scenes, video clips and interviews. Not really value for money, but clever marketing (as always with Duff).
Why are all these "artist" afraid to admit their music is pop? Hilary says she's rock, Lindsay says she's rock, Ashlee says she's rock, Britney says she's hip hop! "Pop" is not a bad word. They're not fooling anyone but themselves.
Lastly i have to say, i may not seem like it, but i am a Hilary Duff fan. I really like her but i was just being honest which is something all reviewers should be on this site. You're not being disloyale to the artist for having an honest and realistic opinion.
