Lulu and her manager, Marion Massey, throw shade at Sheena Easton circa 1980

Lulu and her manager tell aspiring singer, Sheena Easton, what they think of her and why she doesn't have what it takes to be a pop star in the 80s. lol!!!

This is taken from a BBC documentary on the launching of a pop singer - Sheena Easton.

Thanks, OP, we've all been waiting breathlessly to find out how this will work out for Sheena!

Feminist gold!

Lol that manager was ruthless right to Sheena's face. Looks like Sheena was ready to cry. I never cared for Sheena or her songs. But she does have a gorgeous lower register. Her higher notes are just too thin and reedy.

You’d cry too if you were 18 yrs old and some bitch who has tons of experience told you that you were too ordinary to be a pop singer. Glad those bitches didn’t stop Sheena or EMI records from moving forward.

Prince certainly liked Sheena!

Sheena's a well known cunt and I don't think what the manager said was all that bad. Saying you've got what it takes to be a movie star but not a pop star is one hell of a compliment.

Lulu who?

Thanks OP for posting this! I really enjoyed watching this last night. Fascinating behind-the-scenes. Din’t she eventually get engaged to her manager?

I think Lulu’s manager was harsh but fair and at that point Sheena’s hair was not bold enough for that era, the beginning of the 80s. Her clothes were prim too. Her makeup got better as she finished recording the record. At the beginning when Sheena is singing at the dentists’ conference she looked so glum lol.

Sheena always had bad taste in clothes and it may have been partially because of her short, fat legs. I remember Mr. Blackwell put her on his Worst Dressed list saying something like she looks like a Scottish Road Runner.

lol r11! i'd look glum too if i was 17 or 18 yrs old and singing at a dentist convention in scotland.

Champagne for Lulu!

R9: what are some of the cunt stories about Sheena Easton? I went down a google rabbit hole the other week and read quite a few recent (last 10 years) interviews with her and she came across well in them all: no ego, self-aware, laughs at herself, etc. I also love that she’s been married four times and the longest lasted for 18 months!

Oh and I didn’t want to but I found myself agreeing with a lot of what Lulu’s manager said. She did look boring. Lulu came across as a cunt though!

I used to live next door to Sheena in Woodland Hills. She was sweet.

I love Sheena Easton. Lulu not so much.
