3.0 out of 5 stars Everyone else was reading it so I figured...why not?, 9 Feb 2006
This review is from: Confessions of a Video Vixen (Hardcover)
I had heard all about this book on the radio and television but had no real desire to read it but after a friend lent it to my husband and he read it in one sitting I decided to see what all the hype was about and I was hooked after the first page. Don't get me wrong this was not necessarily what I would call a good book, in fact it was difficult for me to decide how many stars to give it because it was more like reading a gossip magazine than a book and therefore hard to judge on the usual 5 star rating system. However, I settled on three stars because though it was horribly written and I felt a little bit dumber for having read it...it was a page turner, girl. Every time I wanted to put it down Kerrine Steffans aka Superhead talked of something more scandalous than the last scandalous thing she did and it kept you wanting to read more! Sure had she not be talking about people we know of this book would have been a bore but that is the thing about tell alls, they are not to be confused with any type of literature.
While `CONFESSIONS OF A VIDEO VIXEN' did hold my interest for a day, I didn't really walk away knowing a whole lot more about the music industry or Hollywood or its inhabitants. Nor did I feel as though this book should serve as a warning to young girls headed down the same path that Kerrine went down, as she suggests was her purpose for writing it in the introduction. Kerrine's story did very little to deter like minded young girls from this life style other than to warn them of the hazards of drug use. She tended to glamorize everything else by telling of how easily everything came to her (supposedly) and what great people all of these men who treated her like dirt actually were. Moreover since her lifestyle seems to have changed only minimally I didn't walk away from reading this with a feeling of "oh well at least everything worked out for her in the end". She seems very content to be doing the same things but on "her terms". Overall "CONFESSIONS' was a quick read best left to those mature enough to already know that all that glitters....
