Taylor Hicks' is definitely seeing his name in the press lately. Good and bad. Blogger known as MFOYA brought Mr. Hicks' into the eye of RADAR Magazine from observations made regarding Taylor Hicks' love life and love interest seen last Summer in Hawaii. Yesterday AOL News picked up the story from RADAR Magazine and featured it in the entertainment section. Those two stories not exactly shedding a positive light on Mr. Hicks, but they are bringing him media attention that seems to be growing. Nothing the media and journalists like more is to capture a name and a story that will garner viewers' and readers' attention. Taylor Hicks may not have sent BillBoard charts soaring through the record industry ceiling when his post-Idol Cd was issued, but he is beginning to once again capture the interest of the National public.
Granted the majority of the posts from the AOL News' comments section were not glowing reports from the Soul Patrol fan base, or the regular Hicks' fans; comments were mostly from regulars on the AOL News site who were not waxing enthusiastic in their commentary about having any news coverage on the man. Even so, there have been almost 300 comments posted since the story came out yesterday around noon. That says, especially looking at other articles on AOL News as well as RADAR Magazine, Hicks is a polarizing individual and his name brings those readers.
Taylor Hicks appearing on Regis & Kelly for their annual wedding celebration, especially with the heart-warming story featured for the couple who won the honors will be some positive exposure. Possible with some of this National media coverage regarding Taylor and these gossip tales being handled by the entertainment news sources, we'll see an even bigger audience tuning in to give this man another viewing, and another listen.
In a more personal note, I had some messages sent to me last evening from my inverted fan crew over at the Caroline Lyders' Fan Site. One, had Chill, the site leader, creating a big ol' howdy-do in the form of a computer screen sized "FUCK YOU" - apparently the "I WANT TO" part did not fit into the screen...It was like Valentines early. Big warm and fuzzy there, baby. Not interested though, chica, you're not my type.
Jeanni in all of her 'Einstinian' way, I mean this woman is a
"By the way, the possessive of Hicks is Hicks’s.
Get that through your thick head.
What? Journalism has gone to the dogs. If there is a story there I can’t find it with a bloodhound."
Ms. Jeanni was on a rant about seeing that I and other writers are using this: " Hicks' ". For future reference, here is some information that might help that delusional lady - or not. That darling woman has to be the work of too many relatives in the same town.
Since it must be trading picture time, I have one for my fan CHILL, the webmistress at the CL Fanatics Club.
For the other Fanatics, F.Y.I., the comments seen on AOL were not expressing disdain toward MFOYA or RADAR Magazine, unfortunately most were about not caring who the hell Taylor Hicks is or hearing about his love life. Many were snarkers that frequent entertainment sites and post for enjoyment.
That all said, I'll have the Tivo set to record "Regis & Kelly", February 8th to watch and review Taylor Hicks' performance during the wedding for that fortunate couple.
