Hilary Duff

With ”edgy” songs like ”Do You Want Me?” ”Weird,” and ”Hide Away,” Disney’s teen princess Hilary Duff announces on her self-titled album she’s a complicated rock & roll adolescent on the order of Avril and Ashlee. Uh-huh. And Betty from the Archie comics is Patti Smith. The middle-school-poetry lyrics may strike a chord, but Duff’s voice, a tiny thing that continues to lack a shred of musical personality, is buried under layers of generic cheese arrangements. Real bad stuff.
