Happy Mexican Independence Day! No, that doesn’t really have to do with this week’s Playlist pick since Jessica Ellen Cornish aka [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jessie J[/lastfm] is from Britain, but I wanted to say it anyway.
Alright, so most people that watched this year’s MTV VMAs wondered, “Who the *#%! is that girl with the broken foot singing in between the awards?” Well, let me shed a little light on this artist and give you a peek at her latest video.
I heard about her first a few months before her appearance on the VMAs. She’s written songs for both [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Chris Brown[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Miley Cyrus[/lastfm] AND has her own set of amazing vocal pipes. She’s also only 23! Other random facts? She’s planning on shaving her head to raise money for charity and similar to [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Lady Gaga[/lastfm] is a supporter of the LGBT community. This was her first big video featuring my imaginary world pretend boyfriend [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]B.o.B.[/lastfm].
With a killer sense of humor that’s really obvious in her videos and the ability to hit high notes, she reminds me of a British [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Pink[/lastfm]. Jessie J makes some interesting fashion choices as well, but with abs like that I’d wear skin tight bodysuits, too! Let’s all pray that day never comes… Did you see her bedazzled cast during the VMAs? She’s sitting down in this entire video which makes me think that her foot was still broken at the time it was shot. Hopefully she’ll be back in full health when she opens up for [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Katy Perry[/lastfm] at her California Dreams Tour Staples Center show November 22. Tickets are on sale now.
I like the message of this song and the video was really entertaining. Reminds me a lot of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Lily Allen[/lastfm] not only because they share accents and nationalities but also because they both have that smarmy, sarcastic humor in their lyrics. Let me know what you think of this week’s pick, Jessie J’s “Who’s Laughing Now?”
