Confession time. I watch the X-Factor, there I've said it!
The show has been criticised for catapulting people to huge musical fame without the long battle that "proper" bands have to go through. Like that didn't happen before with Motown or Phil Spector's bands. But the expulsion of young (and as far as I could make out talentless) Frankie Cocozza highlights a new issue.
Many young people clearly believe that success can and should be easy and instant. Frankie seems to have taken this attitude a step further by trying to live the Rock n Roll lifestyle without even doing the Rock n Roll bit.
At least the Stones, The Who etc. had some big hits before they shagged groupies, binged on boose and drugs and smashed up hotel rooms.
P.S. Frankie you forgot to smash up the hotel room.
