Brooke Hogan: Guilty Pleasure

6.30.2009

By Gregory Evan Miller

Okay granted, the album is not going to go platinum, and it's certainly not destined for Grammy glory, but Brooke Hogan's sophomore release The Redemption is going to get stuck in your head. The album, led by the current single "Falling," is one of those things (like some kinds of porn) you know you shouldn't probably admit you enjoy, but do, despite how much you despise lyrics like "I want to see you strip."

While not all of us can deal with our parents' very public divorce by releasing an album full of radio-ready, corporate-created tracks, Brooke can -- and does, holding nothing back -- literally starting the album with an intro referencing her mother's 19 year old boyfriend. (Side note to readers: Stop hating on Linda. You know you love 18+ nights.)

Regardless of what Brooke may have wanted the album to be, it's catchy as all get-out. Listen to the second single above, "Hey Yo," and you're going to be hooked. No seriously, don't listen to it if you're not secure in your manhood -- or maybe even womanhood or transhood.

And if you're already a fan of Brooke's show Brooke Knows Best on VH1, check out our interview with Brooke's BFF, Glenn Douglas Packard.
