Hilary Duff's working on a new album (in case you hadn't heard), but she won't be pulling any crazy stunts to promote it like today's pop princesses are doing. In an article for The Globe And Mail titled, "Hilary Duff’s three tips for success (and how not to become a celebrity train wreck)," the former Disney star wisely says she won't be doing anything provocative when she finally returns to the music scene.
"I’m working with producer Billy Mann and he has so much great advice and wisdom. One of the things he’ll say to me is, “You’ve gotta do you. Everyone else is taken.” The music has changed a lot since I was last recording. There are a lot of artists out there being really provocative, wearing certain clothes and performing in certain ways, but right now that’s just not me. I’ve always tried to stay true to who I am and present that to the public because I think when you’re not authentic, people can smell it on you. Besides, if everyone’s doing the same thing then even being provocative isn’t really provocative."
Thank Jesus for that. Remember that time Hilary tried to be 'edgy' with her Depeche Mode-sampling single, "Reach Out," but it just turned out to be super awkward? Hilary's at her best when she's playing pop's approachable girl next door, like during her Dignity era. Lizzie McGuire riding naked on a wrecking ball just doesn't work.
