Anastacia has made an unexpected jump back into the public eye this week, following a hugely successful stint as an X Factor guest judge in Glasgow. A stint so successful, in fact, that fans of the show have complained about Nicole Scherzinger being offered the full-time post over the blonde belter.
43-year-old Anastacia hasn’t been in the spotlight that much in recent years – not since her fourth album Heavy Rotation performed disappointingly in charts worldwide and failed to spawn any hit singles. But prior to that, she’d been bashing out the anthems left, right and centre. ‘I’m Outta Love’? ‘Not That Kind’? ‘Paid My Dues’? ‘One Day In Your Life’? ‘LEFT OUTSIDE ALONE’?!?!
Interestingly, though she has scored multi-platinum albums in the UK, Australia, France, the Netherlands and Switzerland, she has never really cracked her home market in the US. In fact her only single to even chart at all on the Billboard Hot 100 was ‘I’m Outta Love’, which reached the giddy heights of, erm, No. 92.
While we sit here with everything crossed that she is offered the permanent X Factor job over sacked US panellist Nicole, you just kick back and enjoy this ABSOLUTE CLASSIC. We’re still not entirely sure we understand the video.
Oh wait, and don’t forget this one.
AND THIS ONE.
