Emily Osment songs you won’t hear
On new EP All The Right Wrongs

Emily Osment steered clear of Disney and Hollywood records, choosing Wind-Up for her label. Maybe not a great choice, but the days of a record label behind you are long gone (see Building the Band Brand: Becoming famous in 21st Century at You need your own publicist and handle your own career.

The thing that bothers me is she went for an EP (extended play) rather than a full CD. This killed even Miley Cyrus on The Time of Our Lives, which languished at #3 on the Billboard charts instead of going to #1.

Yes, I do believe Osment is one of the greatest new Hollywood stars, and they all seem to be coming out of Disney. Look at the video with Mitchell Musso or Hero In Me. No indication she’d turn into the Hollywood Hottie she is today. Same with Alyson Michalka (here). Believe Osment will be the second decade of 21st Century equivalent to Heather Locklear or Molly Ringwald; 21st Century Liz Taylor or Bridgette Bardot?

By the way, Amazon is smartly offering All the Right (should be Wright) Wrongs for $5.98, more accurate pricing than The Time of Our Lives $8.
