Week 1: Have A Nice Day, er Season!
LOS ANGELES, CA Friday Apr.7.2006 /FantasyMusicLeague.com/ -- Meet the FML Insider: Who broke an arm, who's breaking stereotypes, and who's a possible breakthrough artist?
Welcome to a new season of the Fantasy Music League, where it's all about who has the digital juice. Each week we put together a few pieces of advice and insight that we come across playing in the league. If you have a question, observation or comment shoot us an email at commissioner@FantasyMusicLeague.com, we look forward to hearing from you.
Broken news, possible clues:
How nice a day will it be for Richie Sambora when the Bon Jovi's Japan segment of the "Have A Nice Day World Tour" kicks off April 8th, and Sambora's broken arm might still be in a sling? Will it effect sales online and break them from the charts?
Faith Hill breaks the standard by making FHM's (For Him Magazine) 7th Annual Top Sexiest Women at 38 years old. Over half the women on the list are in their mid twenties. Thanks to the MILF craze, not just the teenage girls are hotties anymore. Hill was number 48. Do hotter chicks sell more records?
Pink is breaking the stereotype once again with her song Stupid Girls. Poking fun at the most talked about Hollywood hotties all the way down to their stupid fashion accessory puppies. Is she biting the hand that feeds her, or will fans realize her point?
James Blunt received nominations, Favorite Male Artist and Favorite Breakthrough Artist, for the fifth annual MTV Asia Awards. At number one on the CHR and Hot AC charts, looks like the competition better break their butts to knock him out of the top spot.
