Here's Jessica Sierra, performing the king of all lame metaphor songs "Total Eclipse of the Heart" on American Idol in 2005:

Now here she is three days ago, right after getting arrested for fighting with three cops outside a club in Tampa:
Besides her radical, Madonna-esque reinvention as a meth-chic diva, how has Sierra helped nurture her stellar career in the music industry?

The woman, or rather the Producer maliciously filming her unstoppable downward spiral to fill a couple hours in VH1’s programming schedule, is a marketing genius.
