Hating Alison Ashley? More like hating Delta Goodrem.
Prior to that, it was a niche area for teenage Nick Jonas fans, but after The Voice? The bile spewed forth attacking Goodrem’s looks, her mannerisms, her voice, her personality, her entire existence.
She left. And then, on Sunday, she returned. And so did the hate.
did The Voice not realise that no one likes Delta? They’re putting us through that AGAIN? — oh errol (@oherrol) June 28, 2015
Apparently, she can’t dance. She comes across as smug and insincere. She’s fake. She inflicted Brian McFadden on us. She tries too hard. She’ll advertise anything (milk, toothpaste, haircare). She’s bland. She’s falsely modest. The list of Goodrem’s transressions goes on and on. It seems that the former Neighbours star dared to voice opinions on national television and immediately saw her status plummet from Australia’s sweetheart to most-bullied on TV. Why?
No one had a problem with Goodrem, now 30, when she starred as Nina Tucker on Neighbours as a 15-year-old. Her piano-playing character helped launch her real-life pop career, and her first song, Born to Try, premiered on the show. It went to number one on the Arias singles chart. Her first album, Innocent Eyes, broke Australian records previously held by the beloved perennial touring act John Farnham. Goodrem was Australia’s golden girl. Sure, she had her detractors – what syrupy-sweet pop star doesn’t? But on the whole, she was popular, inoffensive and well-liked.
