That is the main question I have after reading this interview with Sarah McLachlan, who apparently has a new album coming out.
The interview beings with a brief discussion of who she would like to collaborate with and whether she would like to be on The Voice (sandwiched between these two topics we also conveniently get this link: “PHOTO: Sarah McLachan unveils her hot bikini bod in Hawaii!” — the typo is theirs), and then the remainder of the article (which you may notice has included absolutely no information or questions about McLachlan’s new album) is devoted to her thoughts and feelings about young stars like Miley Cyrus.
If they were hoping for a Sinead O’Connor moment they didn’t get it, as McLachlan basically says that she doesn’t give unasked for advice, but I have to say, I’m getting tired of the “Let’s get an older female celebrity’s opinion on the outlandish antics of these young whippersnappers” thing. If you’re going to ask a question that has nothing to do with what your interviewee is there to promote, at least be creative! Here are some questions I would have liked to see instead:
- Do you believe in ghosts?
- If you died, what is the first place you would want to haunt?
- Do you think we will ever have a ghost President?
- What advice do you have for the ghosts of young women who are acting too spooky?
Please note I am available to conduct celebrity interviews on a freelance basis.
