    She's a good songwriter who's written for many popular singers. She's also an amazing singer herself:



    Do It Like a Dude is not the most amazing song, but I personally love it because it's so catchy and fun to sing and dance to.
    I'm sorry but her voice is far from amazing. Technically it's nothing special and all the emotion seems contrived, I mean she can sing I'm not denying that but she's not amazing.

    Well, IMO she is. And better than a lot of other popstars you get in the charts.

    Ah yeah, she probably is. Just amazing singer to me means people like Mary J Blige.

    Do It Like A Dude alllllways gets stuck in my head. It's alright, don't know any others.

    Everything should add up to me liking her, but there are some problems I have with her image and the video and her youtube stuff that I haven't quite worked out yet. She reminds me of like, a really lite 2011 Nina Hagen (without the voice obviously)

    Wow, I'd be surprised if you've never heard Price Tag before, it's one of those songs that is always playing on the radio. But if you're someone who completely avoids the radio then I understand :p:

    But yeah, Do it like a Dude has that effect on me too

    I just youtubed it and I don't recognise it, but yeah, I never listen to the radio, so. It wasn't until March that I heard Whip My Hair for the first time

    that was the first thing I noticed about her. she had just released do it like a dude and I just saw the hair, the skimpy clothes and the wierd video and I just didn't like it! I thought she was just going to be another girl who tries to be shocking and out there to get famous. then I heard price tag then saw other video of her on youtube singing who you are and mamma knows best and I became a fan!

    She's a brilliant singer, which will become apparent as soon as she makes a decent song.

    I admit she's a bit annoying, but she can sing her face off.
