Angelababy’s music debut23 August, 2010 by Chad
Last month, current top model Angelababy became the new face of Vidal Sassoon when she appeared for brand’s new commercial, Beauty Survivor. The campaign also marks her first attempt at singing as she provides the titular song for the promo herself. Angelababy replaced the previous spokesperson of two years, Amuro Namie, sparking outrage among fans of the Okinawan singer everywhere.
It is easy to see why many were upset with the change. In comparison to past ads, the new setup comes across as rather tacky. And as much of an Angelababy fan one might be, you’ve got to admit that singing is not her forte. Her English lines made my hair stand on end. I’m not sure which is worse though, the ridiculous concept of the video or Angelababy’s feeble attempt at singing.

In comparison, here is one of Amuro Namie’s past commercials.
Putting aside the R&B Queen’s top notch vocals, I’ve still got to go with the Amuro Namie ads for being classier, happier and just more stylish.Click here to search CDJapan for Beauty Survivor and other related items.
