    It's Square Lollypops time!

    C'mon all. You know you love it.

    Oh yeah. Some washed up performer named "Madonna" is apparently guesting tonight. What. Ever.

    So tonight we get more of:

    Jessica's "I was so poor" fakitude
    Mona's perpetual "cold" and the accompanying scratchy throat
    Missy's dancers looking bored. Missy looking wonderfully aloof.
    Missy slurring just about every other sentence, but ya' know... just keepin' it real, y' all.
    Nilyne bitching about being left out by the other girls.
    Justin Timberfake's {Matthew's} tired-ass Timberfakeyness.
    Akil... er... playing the guitar? Okay, I don't have one for him. Or Deltrice, really.

    Of course now we are spared the whole "rappers" vs. "singers" B.S.--which was getting tired.

    I'm hoping Nilyne is the one to go this week.

    The kiddies get money to shop in Beverly Hills. Mona meanwhile drafts some extra-flamey "fashion consultants" to deliberately give the kiddies a tough time when they come back. They proceed to recommend some totally ludicrous outfits to shake them up.

    Deltrice is actually dressed like a hostess in the Playboy club. Nilyne is wearing a Tutu. Akil is the only one to object to the re-wardrobing and "wins" this informal contest. Mona gives a little speech about being true to yourself. This lesson of being "true" to yourself ties into the next segment where they meet Madonna in a convention center (Mona blathers about Mads being the ultimate example of this).

    Madonna is deliberately non-glamorous in her own hair, fairly normal makeup, a black T-shirt and jeans.

    She sits down and answers questions from the kiddies for like... it seems to be about six or seven minutes, if you look around the editing a bit.

    Funniest of all, she tells them to not worry too much about getting "more famous" but instead to think about the message of their work.

    Oh, and they get dragged to a Missy Elliot performance in some noisy club. Rah rah.

    Justin Timberfake comments in interview about how "uncomfortable" he is with the over-the-top sexuality of Missy's male dancers.

    Next, Tina Maria has the children in some contest where they have to finish a song she gave them. They all have to make up their own verses in an hour. They sing it all in one joint performance with Tina. They actually ALL do a pretty good job.

    I liked all the performances tonight, though I thought Deltrice was weakest. Akil and Matthew in spotlight.

    Justin Timberfake and Akil get the ol' Spotlight. Matthew because he doesn't have any real presence, I think, and Akil because he choked a bit in the performance and was very conservative (even commenting on that fact himself later).

    SquarePops interviews the two together instead of separately.

    Matthew's defense of himself is that he has "personality and energy", which is B.S. He totally ducks the question, which was to attack Akil's place on the tour.

    Akil is squirley too on the criticism side, but ultimately comes straight out and says Matt doesn't have much talent. But he flip-flops and wishes Matt luck about a second after that and talks about how pop-starry the guy is.

    Akil gets dumped because Missy feels he allows other people the lead role too easily.
