K’ronikka Is The World’s Worst Pop Star.

Once again The Onion nails it. This coupled with Charlie Brooker’s excellent episode of his Black Mirror mini series, entitled 15 Million Merits, which took a healthy swipe at talent shows like The X Factor, gives us hope that one day this kind of vapid horseshit, profit driven bile will be forcibly removed from our TVs and airwaves carried out into an empty industrial estate car park and beaten to death by two large Bulgarian body builders.

That said if K’ronikka’s song was ever released the chances are it would probably end up a hit, so that said hope is akin to pissing in the wind.
