It's debatable if she is even doing that. She is in the UK tabloid
newspapers (not that I read them, of course) a couple of times each
week photographed coming out of various nightclubs, sometimes sober and
sometimes not. The angle of "fallen angel" is a gift to the newspapers
especially now that at 18 she has access to all the loot she made when
a child. The voice must have been degraded by her heavy cigarette habit.
Hayley Westenra has rather taken her crown and, it has to be said, is a
much better singer than CC ever was if you like that kind of thing.
