Jewel: What the heck happened?

DId anyone check out TRL on Friday? I normally don't watch it, but I was flipping through the channels Friday and saw that Jewel was premeiring a new video. I can't stand her, but she said that she went in a new direction, so I thought what the heck...

Oh my word. She went teen pop! I think the video was suppost to be a spoof, but she was dressed like a modern-day teen star, complete with dancers, Britney Spears-esque outfits, etc...


She planned to go electronica according to the link below, but I was certainly surprised by this direction.

(And no, I don't have any links to a video or pics, I could not find any on MTV yet)

I think someone got really sick of her "whiny" music and konked her on the head with her own guitar. When she regained consciousness she thought she was Christina Aguilera.

I think you didn't quite get the point of the video and of the song.

She's accusing current pop stars of only wanting money, not expressing art, and the fact that they are used to sell products.

That's why in the videos she's dancing, whored-up and shown endorsing products,etc....

if you want to see the 'intuition' music video, go there :

Listen to the lyrics and pay attention to the details in the video and you'll get how she's making fun of today's music industry.

Love the song and the video with her making fun. I laughed out loud when the video crawler went by that said "Jewel's music sounds so much better now that she's dancing!" Great stuff!

yeah the video is hilarious. She was on TRL and one audience member asked her why there was a TRL skit in it and Jewel just kinda laughed because none of these kids got that TRL promotes such crappy music. it's kinda like those people who think she sold out by hearing 'intuition' lol. They just can't think a little bit about what they're listening to....

And the sad thing about it is that this will probably be her highest selling album!

It's funny because it's true.

Well, blink 182s parody of pop turned them into pop stars, and MTVs faux pop group 2gether is making albums as well.

It is amazing to me how someone could not know that this song is a meant to be a parody.

Man...she totally made her point with the song.

She looks good as usual but that song is complete and utter crap. Hopefully the rest of the disc isn't like that.

I thought that was the idea. Unfortunatly for Jewel, the entire TRL audience didn't get the idea that it was a complete spoof.

I should have mentioned that I only caught the last half of the video when I first saw it, so I missed some of the parody.

Oh well, if she's playing a huge joke, it's an interesting one.

I really enjoyed Jewel's first two albums "Pieces of You" and "Spirit", both fantastic albums.

But all the stuff she did after that, is too pop for me.

I don't like Jewel anymore.

Next thing you know, she'll be fitting in with Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, Pink and all those overrated skanky pop stars.

It seems like everybody is getting into the pop-heavy make-up around the eyes-straight hair-tight clothing showing your midriff look. After Jessica Simpson's second CD came out, man did I thought she looked liked Britney Spears. And after Jewels 3rd CD, boy did she look different! Everybody is trying for that look.

And for her new video, if it's a parody of the pop world, then I have got to tape it and pay attention to it.

Jewel is still Jewel, there is no 'new' look. It was an inspired video, one of the best i have seen lately ( that isnt saying much though, there is so much crap on MTV)

Doubt it, her first album sold more than 11 million copies.

Haha I agree but....

This morning I heard her song and when I went into the living room to watch the video... it was a TV commerial... for an Intuition Lady Shaver! Maybe the song isn't THAT much of a parody after all!

That's ok... I still like the song and video!
