After seeing this post over at The Music Oracle, I HAD to look this girl up. She’s freaking AMAZING. I loved the songs he posted of hers, but seeing her first audition for the X-Factor made me love HER. I watched a few more of her performances. Some, I didn’t love. Others, I REALLY liked and was impressed by. To me, she’s some sort of Katy Perry – Amy Winehouse – Lily Allen – Nicki Minaj - Amy (from Karmin) concoction that I really like. That’s a lot of names/people, I know, but it. is. no. lie. Check out her audition:
I have more music to share with you tomorrow. Right now, I have to get a bit more work done, and drink more water. Must. Hydrate. Before. Run. Did I mention that I’ve done two runs so far? Not bad at all. I actually feel great after I run. I had a little moment last night that I won’t completely rehash. I’m just going to say that a comment was made that I really didn’t appreciate it. It was pretty disheartening, hurtful, and discouraging. For a moment, I felt like throwing in the towel. Then, I decided that NO ONE and NOTHING would steal my joy. If I want to do something, I WILL do it. It doesn’t matter who laughs, or thinks I’m stupid, or says I look funny. People are allowed to say and think what they want. They just aren’t allowed to stop me from DOING what I want. *I* have the power! So THERE!
Hope you’re having a great week. If you haven’t had a really great deep-belly laugh for the week, please call up your most hilarious friend and talk about nothing. That should do it.
