Commercial Break: A tribute, as Duffy quits pop

21 February 2011

The music world has been rocked into a stupour today with the shock news that Duffy is knocking it on the head. The strange-faced Welsh singstress is apparently walking away from the pop business following piss-poor sales of her second album.

Walking away? Or doing on on a bike, like she did in this memorable ad for Diet Coke, accurately described elsewhere today as “quite possibly the single most awful thing that any one person has ever done.”

If anything, it’s hypnotic in its sheer terribleness. We’ve just watched it 17 times in a row and now it feels as though the very skin from our faces wants to escape by turning itself inside out. Try it! And thanks Duffy!

    It begs the question how did the first album ever get put out in the first place? Terrible terrible voice!

    ...“quite possibly the single most awful thing that any one person has ever done.” Hmm. Would that quote have come from Holymoly perhaps? An article written by Paul Smith perhaps, of these very pages? So might this piece be accurately described as a Bitterwallet circle jerk perhaps?

    Is this true? Paul, did you used to drink in the Ram?
  • Alexis
    Navy Grey went the same way didn't she? That's what you get for having a voice like a muppet.

    All the stupid bitch did was warble, could never understand why she was so popular.
  • Dickwad
    So she quit music in the same way as Gordon Brown quit being prime minister. No-one wants you, so fuck off.

    Anyone know her surname? She always sounded like it should have been "Doze". Also, based on her recent 'look', I think she might have moved on to regular Cola quite soon after this ad.
  • tom
    duffy is her surname
  • Mark C.
    Wow, she loosk and sounds like Orville the Duck.
  • Steve O.

    Duffy's a millionaire with a whole life to look forward to and she needn't do a hand's turn ever again if she doesn't feel like it. All of you, and the writer of this ridiculous blog entry slagging her off..... aren't.

    Duffy is a talentless shrieker, and I'd say good riddance but these ego-maniac wannabees never go away for long. She'll be back, sadly. As to whether she's a millionaire or not (like that's got anything to do with the quality of her'music') - do any of these record company puppets make that sort of money? Especially now that the yoof simply steal their music instead of buying it.

    I'd do her

    I am sure she is worried, about a bunch of retards that hide behind bogus names, what I would be concerned about is a top London legal firm investigating this website, tracing the ip addresses to the owners, and if your malicious content was done in works time, you will possibly get the sack, if done in your time at home you may look forward to a listing in your local newspaper and legal action, persons can have comments, but this website, is about hen pecked men venting anger at every subject, and the sooner it's closed and the abusers and site owners taken to task, then the normal persons can sit back while a national paper names and shames, what this space you sad little men

    Nick T - it's been a few years since I wrote for HM, but thanks for playing!

    @Victoria "what I would be concerned about is a top London legal firm investigating this website, tracing the ip addresses to the owners, and if your malicious content was done in works time, you will possibly get the sack, if done in your time at home you may look forward to a listing in your local newspaper and legal action," If you actually read this stream-of-consciousness drivel you'll quickly realise that the only retard here is you, dearie. Maybe stuff like that happens in La-la Land but not down here on Earth. So now we know who bought Duffy's latest album - will the other seven please stand up?
