I’ve become a fast fan of hers, since the radio show Passport Approved played her (before her album came out in America), and since then she’s reached heavy rotation on 94.7 and many other radio stations with the songs “You Know That I’m No Good” and “Rehab,” but I was trying to sum up her appeal and thoughts kept colliding in me little head. She’s known for both her amazing voice and her, er, issues. And trying to sum her up seems (to me) to demean both what she can do, and what she’s going through.
I tried summing her up as “a Goth-Jewish Shirley Bassey who cuts herself,” and that’s one of the weirder, more confused, ill-expressed thoughts I’ve pondered lately.
I don’t really know yet how to describe her. Probably the wrong time to try.
(Here’s her Wikipedia entry, for my later reference in attempting to, shall we say, convey her.)
