    @kutox1 people need to get rid of those spoons then. All you said is sadly true, I mean the fact that people are just focused on what's everywhere. But what I meant is that it is a little bit sad, just because she deserves more due to the great effort and work put on her music, and unfortunately only a few can see it.

    @GagaDeLaRoux seems that way, but then what can you do? She's making decent music, had a small bit of coverage here in the UK at least, but if people choose to listen to crap like Rita Ora and Katy Perry instead because it's being spoon-fed to them every day, then sadly that's what they will continue to do
