YOU'RE FULLER IT: A long crawl around the mind of Simon Fuller by the good people of Reuters offers warning of the semi-evil one's next plans:How about an animated show for preschoolers based on music? A putative teen show that Fuller describes as a singing, dancing version of "Moulin Rouge?" Or "I Love Music" -- a weekly magazine-style TV show expected to debut in Britain next year. We're especially looking forward to the teenage strippers concept. That's going to go down well, isn't it?

Fuller opines that "the music industry is too one-dimensional. They need to step back and instead of saying it is dying, acknowledge that music is hot and happening." And he could be right. Nothing like that for Fuller, who's got loads of ideas, everyone of them different:

An all girl manufactured group chosen by mass auditions like the Spice Girls
A boy-girl manufactured group chosen by mass auditions like S Club 7
A boy-girl manufactured group of preteens chosen by mass auditions like S Club 8
A boy-girl manufactured group chosen by mass auditions on the telly like HearSay
A boy manufactured group and a girl manufactured group chosen by mass auditions on the telly like Girls Aloud and One True Voice...

Oh, yes, if only the music industry would be more like Simon Fuller and embrace difference.
