It's Probably Hormones, Isn't It?

Question: is it *very* wrong that I have a sizeable girl-crush on a 16 year-old Australian pop chanteuse?



I thought so.

I'm assuming the lack of comments is an indicator of the RESOUNDING DISAPPROVAL OF SOCIETY AS A WHOLE.

Blimey, the Ozzies have managed to clone a clean-living better-looking Amy Winehouse.

(Nobody has any right to be this cool and talented at 16. I was still a socially inept, hideous teenage mutant at her age.)

I think she's part of a clone army of alternative Amys who are ready to step into any film soundtrack commitments etc. once the real Amy finally falls definitively off the rails. Which probably won't be long now.

LOL at your search term of the day.

You've been listening to radio 2 again - they play this all the time!

Tara said...

I suppose there are worse things. I just can't think of any right now. ;)

No, what Radio 2 do is play the first 60 seconds, then say "Sorry, no time. Our superficial and slanted review of the morning papers that you don't buy because they irritate you too much took up the time. Here's the pips. Blah, blah, blah..." Radio 1 is similar. Without the pips. And with less papers and more pap. Oh, for a radio station that plays music all the time, especially in the mornings.

I do like this, but I have a very good excuse as I am probably the radio 2 target audience.

Someone needs to get her into the pub and find some dodgy friends quickly though if she's ever going to be as big as Amy.

There is simply nothing I can say about this post that won't get me in an awful lot of trouble, but please don't imagine my silence to indicate any sort of disapproval.

Ah, no, I don't like listening to the radio because for some reason I have trouble following spoken words. Although if Stef is correct then it sounds like there's not much really to follow.

Chatterbox: I'm sure that when Ms Cilmi arrives in sunny Acton W3 for her obligatory young-Aussies-abroad year away, she'll have no difficulty in finding the pub. She may have some difficulty finding her way home again, though.

Not disapproving at all. Just curious. It does solve your inability to say penis problem though.

I don't fancy her, but the bass player is rather fetching.

My man-crush is probably wronger.

But surely you need the radio to make staying in bed seem like a less attractive proposition, if you're ever going to get up, Stef? It would certainly explain most breakfast DJs I've ever heard...

Ah, I wondered who this Cilmi person was (well, I did when I saw a Promo CD in Sounds OK: the 'before' to Amy Winehouse's 'after', evidently.

Wonder who's the 'in-between'?
