In a poll of Pac-10 cheerleaders, where would you rank Girls Aloud? I would put them slightly behind the Oregon cheerleaders but well ahead of the UCLA Dance Team. Without that disturbingly pale girl, tied for first place.
A: I think that’s about right. Does that mean the Oregon cheerleaders could become a popular pop band in the United Kingdom while Girls Aloud could move to the United States and be the toast of the Pac-10?

Given that the Song Girls pre-2000s had created such a great reputation for the squad, why do you feel that the Song Girls of this decade feel compelled to act in numerous salacious, tittilating, and frankly very tacky and embarrassing ways?
We go from Tricia Pillsbury to that super tacky show “Hot Girls in Scary Places. Isn’t that just unnecessary? It seems desperate to me.
A: Sometimes, when you don’t feel you get enough attention, you’ll do anything. That’s my only rationalization for a very bad TV show. In the Pillsbury era, it seemed like there was a much higher standard on what “events” were allowed to include song girls.
