Sarah | 13815 comments According to the AV Club, Island Def Jam is creating a pre-fabricated pop star based on a soon-to-launch young adult novel series.

She'll release an album of pop gems to coincide with the publication of the first novel. Her name will be Mackenzie "Zee" Blue.

Except, y'know, they haven't cast her yet.

They could make the circle complete if the plot of the first novel was about how she was discovered at the mall and plucked from obscurity to be a big star, and how she deals with sudden fame.

Then the second novel can be about her descent into a nightmare world of pills and porn. The tenth one will be about her struggle to remain sober, and her attempts to be taken seriously as a singer-songwriter.

Anybody got any other plots? We can plan the whole series!

Sarah | 13815 comments Good luck to both of you. I'm sure you both have more talent than whomever they end up choosing.

Gus Sanchez (gussanchez) I'd like to be the Hispanic Hannah Montana. Maybe "Inez Montanez". Or, "Hannah Montana", but say that with a more Spanish accent.

This sounds like Gem for the 21st century with a hefty dose of US weekly.

Mike (MJMorgan) | 38 comments Maybe I should dye my hair pink, and get some permanent eyeliner.

You really should, Mike. I also think you should invest in some tighter clothes, fishnet stockings, and get your nipples pierced.

Sarah | 13815 comments That might be a little much for the tween crowd. Have you tried changing your last name to "Jonas?"

Wasn't Synergy the name of the radio/God/schizoid personality split of Gem?

Sarah | 13815 comments Yes. How truly outrageous.

Also a term used to describe a situation where the final outcome is greater than the sum of its parts.
Manufactured teen pop + co-promoted book series=$$.

Jack Donaghy uses the term on 30 Rock to describe one GE property (say, a convection oven), being plugged on another (the show-within-a-show on 30 Rock). So that's a real oven that is really promoted on a real show by someone pretending it is a fake oven on a real show within a fake show. Whoot.
