Crush of the Week

Of all the girls-next-door, the one we’d most
like to see move is Hilary
Duff
. She, more than any other, possesses an Eve Harringtonian
ambition that stomps, Godzilla-like, over all obstacles in her path.
Hostile and breathtakingly fake at all times, she’s able to be sententious
and aw-shucksy at the same time. "Change is a very important
and natural thing," says Hilary of her latest recording project. "We called the album Metamorphosis because it’s about changes that everybody experiences. It’s not just about
me, but it is very personal. The change might seem a little sudden
because most people are used to seeing me as a character through
Lizzie McGuire and movie roles that I played. So this music is a
good way to get everyone to know the real me. Everyone evolves and
changes." And here’s how she signs her relentlessly peppy online
diary: "Luv ya’ll [sic], xoxo hil*." We see the real Hilary
and she has evil in her heart! And for that, she is our crush of
the
week. — Ada Calhoun
