Timbaland: The New Susan Lucci?

Sep 19th, 2007 // 5 Comments

nothingshsocking.jpgBringing together two parts of my life that I never, ever thought would be brought together–a decade spent being forced to watch ABC daytime soaps as a small boy stuck at my grandparents’ apartment and my obsessive fanboy crush on Timothy Mosley–Timbaland will be making the trip from Virginia Beach to Llanview, the fake well-heeled Pennsylvania ‘burb where the various intrigues of One Life To Live take place, for an October episode. (The AP, in its infinite subtlety, opens its report: “Timbaland is trying something new.” It’s also notable for the fact that the Nelly/Justin wonder team seems to have erased any need to mention Tim’s decade-long stint producting hip-hop and R&B artists in quickie news blurbs.) You know, I watched this show on and off for most of my grade school years and I don’t remember a single thing as interesting as a canned performance of “The Way I Are” happening in all that time. (And yes, yes I know Lucci is All My Children.)

    I think it was a Days of Our Lives/Another World two-fer that my memory banks are scarred with. Cartoons didn’t start until 3 pm.

    Wouldn’t Kanye be the new Susan Lucci? After all, he’s the one always getting shut out at the awards shows…

    I thought Kanye was the new Susan Lucci.

    I think I’m the new Susan Lucci, because I’ve been shut out of submitting comments for the past five minutes. Sorry if my Maura-duplicating comment finally shows up three or four times.

    Having seen Timbaland perform live three times now, I can honestly say that he completely deserves to be on daytime television. He can’t sing or rap and has negative charisma points, so he should fit right in.
