Cheryl Cole: Britain is Holding Out on Us

Let me get this straight, Britain has the hot popstar Cheryl Cole to offer and instead they give us homely Susan Boyle.  It's the equivalent of being promised a good toy for Christmas, but only getting a crappy toy from a drug store or the United States telling Britain that the most attractive pop star we have to offer is Lady Gaga.

To borrow a phrase from a 2004 song by overrated British rapper The Streets,  one might say to Cole or about her, " You're fit but my gosh don't you just know it" (Don't even get me started on how stupid the whole The Streets thing is/was).

Cole is a famous popstar in the United Kingdom who rose to fame as part of an all girl pop group called Girls Aloud that was formed through a reality television show, and she has recently started a successful solo career with UK chart topping single "Fight for this Love."  Watch it here.  She's also married to Chelsea and England national team soccer player Ashley Cole who was even stupid enough to cheat on her.

If you've watched the video, you know what we're missing out on.  She definitely fits the mold for an American popstar as she's somewhat talented, but really gets by on her looks.  In fact, she'd fill the current void of this type of popstar in America.  Besides Britain owes us, they haven't given us this kind of sexed-up popstar since the Spice Girls, and they weren't all that great anyway.

As a country that isn't always known for its good looks, one might think Britain would want to showcase someone like Cole, but clearly they don't want to share her with the U.S.

Maybe because she's considered somewhat of a national treasure in Britain, and they fear we'll steal her from them.  Hey, we gave back Elizabeth Hurley once we got bored with her.
