Unassuming, down to Earth pop princess with a long and storied career ahead of her? Hipster culmination of ironic detachment that happened to make some good music? Or not-ready-for-prime-time player headed up the slow click clack of the fame roller coaster on her way to a Brittney/Lindsay/Miley/Amy spiral of self destruction?
Personally after being introduced to her this weekend by my 11 y.o. son I hope the former. There is something about her anti-bling anthem Royals that makes me hope she is a wordsmith and true to those lyrics that wants her to make the kind of music I want my sons to grow up listening to and speaking to them. Although I wonder about who is making the stylistic choices for her videos. Is it her and does she have a narcissistic streak or are her "handlers" going for something with the single shots on her?
She is the youngest Number 1 Billboard artist since Tiffany.
Such an interesting video as minimalist as it is.
Other songs from her debut are here.
