Pop Music Wishlist: 10 Blondes Who Need To Make A Comeback
When Gwen Stefani and Fergie announced their musical comebacks this year, the pop world was ecstatic. Apart from her work with No Doubt on 2012’s Push And Shove, Stefani has not put out any solo projects since 2006’s Sweet Escape. Fergie, on the other hand, kept herself busy with the Black Eyed Peas. But her 2006 debut, The Dutchess, was in dire need of a sophomore follow-up.
Along with their incredibly catchy tunes, they were also known for their bright blond locks – which definitely added to their bold and confident personalities. Eight years later, these two ladies are aiming to take over the pop scene as solo artists once again. But there are a few more blondes who deserve another shot at music stardom.
In no particular order, here are 10 blond-haired divas from yesteryear who should make a comeback sooner than later!
1. Vitamin C
New Jersey native Vitamin C made her debut in 1999 with her self-titled album, which included summery jams like “Smile” and everyone’s favorite sappy end-of-school anthem “Graduation (Friends Forever).” Out of the other blonde divas dominating that year (Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey), Vitamin C was a refreshing burst of energy who didn’t rely on overtly sexual themes for her music.
Her voice may not have been the strongest, but the sweet nature of her tone made her songs fun to listen to. After More, her last album in 2001, the singer switched to acting and became Nickelodeon’s VP of Music in 2012. She needs to use that job to her advantage and make another LP!
2. Willa Ford
Amanda Lee Modano, aka Willa Ford, seemingly came out of nowhere with her 2001 debut album Willa Was Here. The singer took notes from the likes of Christina Aguilera, and her ultra-sexy, no phucks given demeanor was summed up with her first single: “I Wanna Be Bad.”
While “I Wanna Be Bad” was her ultimate jam, Ford also blessed us with the underrated (and obvious Britney Spears reject), “Did Ya Understand That.” After the success of her two singles, she began working on her sophomore project – appropriately titled, Sexy Sex Obsessive. Unfortunately it got shelved in 2004, so we couldn’t hear the greatness Ford was going to bestow upon us. But as 2015 nears, she can totally change that!
