Hilary Duff Appropriates Depeche Mode On New Single “Reach Out”

And guess which Depeche tune she uses? Granted and given, pop tarts ‘n’ P. Diddy get our attention for a second when they raid and repurpose nearly entire ’80s ditties toward their own, nefarious ends … but not in a good way. Where does it all stop? Not with Hilary Duff. These days find Hil treating her live audiences to “Reach Out,” built upon the transubstantiation of “Personal Jesus” into a forgettably “sexy” pop number, adorned with militaristic background dancers and not much in the melody. Clearly she’s hoping for a Rihanna-meets-“Tainted Love” styled transformation, but it doesn’t play like that. Get yr cringe on…

Not Duff’s first bout of ’80s mining, either. Where to next?
