Bubbling Up: Selah Sue

Selah Sue is a young singer and songwriter from Belgium (land of Brussel Sprouts and Jean-Claude Van Damme) who's been making waves with her spot on youtube covers of great songs. Below, watch her cover Amy Winehouse's cover of the Zuton's song "Valerie" (one of my favorites). Her EP titled Black Part Love was released in 2008. She sounds like Duffy a little.

Jeffree Star - Get Away With Murder

 I find Jeffree Star kinda intriguing. He's making fun of all the crap that's going on in pop culture today and the dude can sing. The video for "Get Away With Murder" is over the top dance fluff but it puts all those pop tartlets to shame! The song is the first single lifted from his latest album Beauty Killer. If you're bored of the state of music (and entertainment as a whole) these days take a listen, its pretty fresh and a sick dance tune.

Susan Boyle Sets Chart Reign Record

So a year ago, Susan Boyle was living alone in relative obscurity until she tried out for Britain's Got Talent and ended up becoming an international youtube sensation. Her debut album I Dreamed a Dream has already hit number one in the UK and is set to bring in the new year with it's SIXTH week perched atop the US Billboard Charts. This is an example of when reality TV gets it right. She deserves all the success she gets, and I look forward to hearing more about her.
