Cheyenne Takes Us to “Lollipop World”

|

Above is a slideshow for “Lollipop World,” a song produced, written and performed by the I Know My Kid’s a Star first runner-up Cheyenne. You could probably pick up on the cheery tone from the title — in fact, her mom Helene notes that this song is about as far from Rocky’s post IKMKAS single as you could possibly get. Rock on, Cheyenne…but gently.

  1. Jenni says:

    Thank you, VH1, for posting the loser moments, perhaps hours before it aired. I’m glad the other girl won, this girl’s mother is a victim and needs to stop placing blame, she’s going to ruin her nice kid.

  2. Mrs.Bracey says:

    Hi my name is Mrs. Bracey and I feel like Helene is living the dream of stardom through her daughter. I don’t think she gives good solid advice to her daughter when it comes to taking responsbility for her actions she always look to pend it on someone else. I do belive that her daughter have the potential but she need not to be ^!#~ y with it. She need to learn how to control her attiude problem and learn how to enjoyed working in the business but yet remember to be a Kid.

  3. Dana, a big Cheyenne fan says:

    I am OUTRAGED that Cheyenne did not win!!!!! She has been awesome throughout the whole season! The other girl was good and she has a supportive mom…yeah…so…I hate that they made it seem that Cheyenne’s mom wasn’t! Danny made the wrong decision, he will eat has words very soon. If you or your mom is reading this…continue to reach for the stars, I look forward to my children watching YOUR hit Disney or Nick. show! You have the potential to be the next Raven!!! Best of everything, God bless.

  4. I'm sorry but... says:

    I just don’t think Cheyenne is a very good singer. Srry.

  5. Patricia says:

    I’m glad Mackenzie won. She’s got talent, great attitude, beautiful smile, a sweet and innocent child. And most important of all, a caring child, something Cheyenne did not demonstrate. Yes, Cheyenne is very talented, but with her stuck up attitude, along with her mom’s, will probably end up like Lidsay Lohan, who everyone knows was a great #_$ et to Disney, when she was a good kid. Yea, Cheyenne might become famous sometime, but she needs to look for an agent to manage her career. Maybe Mackenzie’s mom will do a better job in managing her. I’m sure Cheyenne can learn a lot from her!. Imagine that!
    As for Mackenzie, she proved to be better than Cheyenne.

  6. Miller says:

    Wow…. that sounded really forced and Pitchy….you dont care what we think Helene…because this board is all a fixed GAME tooo right….NOT!!!! Learn…and dont be such a sore loser…and Im sure cheyenne will be at the American Idol auditions in 5 years…Oh ya but thats fixed tooo its only the real deal when Cheyenne WINS…..I feel sorry for Cheyenne she has a false sense of her self and feels the world is out to get her because she is perfect and beautiful just like her Mom…I bet every teacher Cheyenne ever had was saying I know how you feel, when you were accusing Danny and Marki of being against POOR Cheyenne!!!! I am sure if any Teacher EVER questioned ANy of Cheyennes behavior you either pulled the race card or the Jealousy Card!!!! Your Behavior was and is disgusting!!!! and embarrasing for your poor daughter!!!!!

  7. sarah says:

    Wow, Cheyenne is a good actress… but her singing really isn’t that great. McKenzie is a *much* better singer.

    And I know it’s a reality show and I’m sure they twist things, but Cheyenne and her mother still did say all those mean things about the other kids. McKenzie on the other hand was sweet and kind the entire time.

    Remember when McKenzie went to apologize for singing Alone (even though it wasn’t her fault… she won it fairly?) and Cheyenne and mother wouldn’t even accept her apology? I thought that was terrible. If Cheyenne ends up making it (which in my opinion, is a big if) she’s probably more likely to end up in rehab than any of the other kids.

    I’m glad she didn’t win.

  8. Ann says:

    I liked Cheyenne very much and wanted her to win until this last episode. She needs to be humble. I felt very bad for Mckenzie when they wouldn’t accept her apology.I knew that McKenzie would win because they were a praying family. Prayer helps..

  9. Devin says:

    I am soooooo glad Mckenzi won Cheyanne was good but she was the most stuck up spoiled brat on that show!!!! Mckenzi really desrved it

  10. LadyRedWoot says:

    Wasn’t this song in Grease? The beginning is totally a rip from that song.

  11. Partridgefan says:

    Holy smokes, I used to think Cheyenne was talented until I checked out that lollipop mess. What the !@#$ was that? Cheyenne, take some music appreciation courses or something……please! There was absolutely no structure or musicality present in that ……..thing. Wow. What happened to you? Did you perhaps become delusional since the show, thinking that anything you do of a performance nature is genius? Maybe you should stick to acting. Just a little constructive criticism.

  12. June says:

    Gee – people are so mean! You’re talking to a child! Try being a little more supportive in your critiques. It’s obvious Helene loves her daughter to no end, and in trying to protect her, made explanations that were less painful to take… she just does not realize yet that in the long run it’s probably better to explain that it’s okay when other people come out on top sometimes… that is just how the world is. That doesn’t mean that Cheyenne won’t go places… she is just adorable and full of talent. I just hope that bitterness doesn’t get in their way. She was my pick to win from the beginning, but the editing in the end was fiercely against her and you could tell in the penultimate episode that they had already decided on Mackenzie. But, no amount of editing could create the scene in which Helene slammed the chairs down and was unwelcoming when little Mackenzie tried to apologize. As much as I like them both, that was very disappointing behavior to watch. But you could see that Helene had figured it all out and her heart was breaking… the problem is, when she makes excuses, you can just watch her daughter learning what will perhaps be a lifelong habit… I really hope not… If she can learn to really take criticism, it will help her succeed. The final episode was just painful for all of them in the beginning, and hard to watch. What a difficult life for a child! I’m glad my children never had to deal with that amount of judgment… look at the majority of child actor’s lives… how unhappy they wind up. I struggle to understand why anyone would wish that for their child. Best of luck to all the kids and moms. May they survive it!

  13. 4me2u says:

    Cheyenne!! u are great!!! you will go far in life!!! you are talented… gifted.. blessed ..and you have alot going.. McKenzie was great too.. but keep your head up !!! you did great and you will go far!!! GO CHEYENNE!!

  14. Partridgefan says:

    I must take the time to apologize for my earlier comment about Cheyenne’s lollipop song. I turns out my computer was freaking out and tracking the song several times simultaneously with a staggering time delay. I mistakenly thought this was intentional on Cheyenne’s part as an attempt to sound like some sort of trippy remix! Sorry, Cheyenne and anyone else I offended. I listened to the song again and, yes, it did have structure. Carry on, Cheyenne and best of luck to all of you.

  15. redphoenix says:

    i just read Sarah’s blog & I agree with her about how terrible it is that Helene & Cheyenne wasn’t gracious enough to accept McKenzie’s apology (even though she didn’t have to apologize..it’s wasn’t her fault about the song!)….McKenzie demonstrated what a nice, beautiful caring person she is and she will go far because of it.

    Helene…if you keep inflating your daughter’s ego, her smugness will ruin her talent which if you watch back on the last two episodes, you can see her performances was ruined by that tinge of smugness & attitude which is a shame. Also I watched the video extra where she was talking about wanting to make a change in the world and how this is what she always wanted to do ever since she was born…well, this sounds a little too fake …if she wants to change the world, she needs to look to McKenzie as an example of how to be a CARING, NICE, respectful individual.

    good luck…I do think Cheyenne has alot of talent!

  16. Sun Smudged says:

    What the hell?! This girl is not a talented singer! She tries waaaay too hard when she sings, it’s so unnatural! Stick to acting, Cheyenne. Thank god McKenzie won.

  17. k says:

    i hate chyanne s negitivity but she is good at singing and acting

  18. belinda says:

    What the heck were you thinking this whole lollopop world is a huge mess. You call that a song McKenzie is a way better singer than you and you know it. Thank God she won instead of you. Maybe you should take some singing lessons so you can learn not to sound so forced and manly when you sing.

  19. shelby says:

    she sucks….her voice sounds all manly sorry but it does

  20. Bob Dylan says:

    after listening to that….I have tears in my eyes…. PLEASE MAKE HER S T O P !!!!!

    HORRIBLE SINGER,

  21. meg says:

    wtf? this is one wierdddddddd song!

  22. vera boadu says:

    wow im sooooooo better than her lol this is a mess omg dang pleaz make her stop its torture! mekenzi is better than her because she is not dramatic when she sings and i think this song sounds a mess a hate to say it but yall kno its true shes okay but but okay will lead you kno were and i felt both cheyanne and here moms additudes were very immiture heck im 12 in a half and i could of behave nicely like mekenzi she was well tought (not to say cheyanne wasnt) way to go makenzi!!

    p.s your a great singer gurl dont let anyone bring u down and if u get critisized its only because most people want you to do better so good job listing to the judges!

  23. vera boadu says:

    i agree with meg!

  24. Jen says:

    That’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard in my life!!!

  25. flower chick says:

    I’m glad McKenzie won.Her mother was very supportive and kept a positive attitude. Although I feel Cheyenne can act, I feel that her mother is creating a monster by always telling her that she is the best and nobody will beat them. Her daughter now has an attitude that I think will hurt her in the long run.

  26. deidra says:

    perhaps the dumbest and worst song I have ever heard. Cheyene sweetie, you can’t sing nor act. Give up living through your daughter Helene……………..she stinks.

  27. Gabby says:

    This is sad.

  28. Kathy Lee G says:

    WOW WOW WOW……………………..How bloody awful!

  29. bambi says:

    Catchy tune…great vocals…song grows on ya…LOVE IT! Great job Cheyenne! Look forward to seeing you on your new show w/Hillary Duff & her sister on Showtime tomorrow (“Material Girls”). Congrats on all your success. You were wonderful in that McDonald’s commercial. Apparently, the only opinion’s that count…have given their opinion and that’s why your career is skyrocketing and will continue to skyrocket. GO YOU!!!

  30. Paige says:

    THANK GOD MCKENZIE WON!!! CHEYENNE AND HER MOTHER ACTED LIKE VICTIMS THE ENTIRE SHOW AND THEY PRETENDED THAT A COIN TOSS WAS UNFAIR!!! SHANNON (MCKENZIE’S MOM) KNOWS HOW TO RAISE A GOOD KID AND WILL TAKE CARE OF HER CHILD AND KEEP HER SAFE. AS FOR THIS SONG BY CHEYENNE, I HATE IT!!! ITS TERRIBLE AND FOR SUCH A SWEET, AIRY SONG, SHE IS BELTING IT OUT LIKE ITS A LOVE SONG OR SOMETHING…I HATE ALL OF IT. GO MCKENZIE!!!

  31. BinAZ says:

    Helene & Cheyenne,
    I watched “I Know My Kid’s . . . ” from the onset and was glued to it each week. I thought Cheyenne had it the entire time, hands down! It’s strange . . . the kid that won never won a single challenge! Now how can that happen? You’re right Helene, it’s never fair. It not what you know, it’s who you know. Shannon and McKenzie obviously won the hearts of both Danny and Markie and as a result they won the show.
    I just read your blog and thrilled to hear Cheyenne is working and doing well. I’m sure she’ll make it, if anyone can. So talented and a very sweet girl. As for your Helene, I don’t know how you stayed in it without pulling someone’s hair out! You were always so professional and it was apparent you knew the business and directed your child magnificantly. On another note . . . I never felt more sorry for any child as I did Alai! That kid is a nervous wreck because of her crazy mother! Gigi’s strategy was to intimidate and threatened each parent to the point of insanity! I think they got rid of Gigi before they had a law suit on their hands. Alai seemed to be a real sweet girl but didn’t have an ounce of talent.
    Anyway . . . the very best to you and Cheyenne.

  34. Blair says:

    oh my….I thought it was a joke because it is so unbelievably awful. Please Helene do your daugther a favor and stop filling her head with undeserved praise! it is not to late to focus on school and start a new career…I just do not see the talent.

  35. J. O. Nashville, TN says:

    Paige, I agree 100%, I couldn’t have said it better myself!

  36. Angela says:

    WOW!!!! WTF???? UNREAL!!! THIS WAS HORRIFIC. Sorry. Mackenzie deserved to win. I couldnt even listen to the whole thing. I was so irritated.
    Make sure this kid goes to college!!

  37. Pencil says:

    Pitifull

  38. Hate To Say It says:

    Ummm… here’s the thing, Helene… if you knew what the hell you were doing you wouldn’t destroy your kid’s credibility by posting something that sounds so unprofessional. I don’t know just how broke you are, or how important this is, but you’re not going to be taken seriously by that poor a recording. Nowadays, you can’t swing a cat without hitting someone who has a Pro Tools studio and willing to throw something together for a couple hundred bucks. That’s the production side of it anyway. As for the songwriting… ummm… well, some help would be necessary there as well. I never thought it was that difficult a thing to create and manage a public image and that hiring professionals was unnecessary. But the inneptitude on display as so many “finalists” from this show clumsily try to milk their “15 minutes” has caused me to reconsider.

  39. chris says:

    shes ok i heard talent better i think is she really works on her vocals she could rock! i think acting is cheyanne’s stronger suit

  40. ROXXANN says:

    WELL FIRST OFF LET ME START OFF BY SAYING I THINK THAT YOUR DAUGHTER IS A FANTASTIC ACTRESS… FROM DAY 1 I KINDA FIGURED HMM… THIS IS GONNA BE A BORING SHOW CAUSE ITS KINDA ONE SIDED SO MAYBE THE YOUR DAUGHTER WAS UNFAIRLY JUGED JUST TO GIVE THE SHOW SOME A TWIST AND MAKING THE OTHER KIDS THINK THAT THEY HAD A SHOT AT WINNING. IN THE END I THINK THAT THE WRONG CHILD DID WIN. THROUGH OUT THE WHOLE SHOW IT WAS STRESSED THAT YOU NEEDED TO HAVE A STRONG BACK BONE TO MAKE IT IN THE INDUSTRY AND OBVIOUSLY SHANNON AND HER DAUGHTER LACK THAT, THAT WHOLE “SOUTHERN HOSPITATLITY ” THING WILL ONLY GET YOU SO FAR. BEST WISHES TO YOU AND YOUR DAUGHTER AND I HOPE WE SEE MORE OF HER IN TIME TO COME…
