    Again through the arts we learn that the best of is invoked when we reach back and build on what has already done.. This is brand new.. but it's steeped in tradition that goes back 60 years. I'm not at all surpised to see that Outkast has something to do with this.​

    who said she sounded like James Brown? Inspired by, doesn't mean sound like. She paid him respect with her performance and her explanation.

    When I first saw her, I was touched by her spirit..hadn't heard her speak a word or sing a tune, but knew she had "something" that was special. Keep an eye on her, she's breaking molds!

    Yeah.. same here.. that's why I looked around for an interview.. I wanted to confirm what her Artistic expression had already told me. This industry has been known to swallow our Artists and Philosophers whole.. or piece by piece.. but I think she knows that.. and this internet thing changes the game.. it will be interesting to see how she handles the run at her. They come bearing gifts.

    Yes they do! The whole recoupment clause in recording contracts is modern day slavery! Those 'gifts' are quite enticing;)
