Lick this

From one 17-year-old I’m not worried about in the least to another who is starting to furrow my brow. These shots of Hayden Panettiere kinda make me go, “Uh-oh.” Look, I know many people have a signature pose they bust out whenever a camera gets pointed in their general direction. After a couple cocktails, I’ve been known to unholster the finger guns. Oh, yeah. I’m awesome. But how, exactly, does one decide on licking as his/her signature pose? I’m sure the young fresh-faced “Heroes” star was just having fun and joking around while pretending to lap up a friend’s breasts, basket of candy, bronze statue’s bum and the Stanley Cup. But the fact that they’ve all surfaced (and then some) makes me think that perhaps Hayden should rethink her tongue’s photogenic qualities. That thing is a total camera hog.

Speaking of impressions, I saw Hayden’s big Fourth of July coming out party for her new hyphenated title (that being singer-actress). Can I just say, meh. I understand that the grass is always greener, but must every actress aspire to be a singer and every singer aspire to be an actress? You never saw Katharine Hepburn telling the press, “But what I really want to do is sing.” Call me cranky (and, many have) but I believe there is something to be said for mastering one craft before moving onto another. Listen, Hayden, we just got used to having to save you to save the world. Now, you want us to savor your music as well? Really, I think you have let the whole “invincible” thing go to your head.

You've got to be kidding.......bored much!? This girl works her ass off........she's the ONLY main character that was in every one of the 23 Season 1 episodes of Heroes.......and it's beginning to look like she's going for it again in Season 2.........that leaves like 2 days.......on the weekend.......to let her hair down and have a little fun......if, licking things is the worst that she does......than Bravo!Hayden.......you're not drug addicts, a drunk, nor a jail-bird like any of the rest of your "so-called" friends. And, FYI: the Adrian catching her from falling......maybe she's not that great at walking on high heals in a tight evening dress........cut the girl some slack.......and when they aren't filming Heroes......she'll be traveling the world many times over......making appearances for Heroes.......Hayden should be applauded as one of the hardest working Hollywood actresses around (she does most of her own stunts, have you seen S1 of Heroes?!) and not being stalked by photographers/collumnists looking to find evidence against the contrary.

Wait she hasn't mastered her craft yet? She has been giving dead on acting for 10 years! And, she is a talented singer. I admit I am tired of the whole "I'm an actor now I want a music career" thing myself, but don't knock talent.

About the licking thing-
As long as it isn't a table of coke or something, there are much worse and dangerous habits to have.

Re: Katherine Hepburn...
Actually, Kate *did* lament the fact that she failed to make it as a singer. In her autobiography, 'Me,' she talks about taking voice lessons and even recording an album, but failing to win praise even from members of her own family. The singer-actress phenomenon may be an utterly tedious trend, but it seems to have a rather long reach.

She's absoultely NOT talented as a singer. Girl needs to stick to acting and looking cute. She practially ruined that whole concert...thing.
