Lady Gaga, Rihanna, britney, Miley, Katie they are all performers - not singers
dont mix the two kids
I was thinking the other day how Ella Fitzgerald was a once-in-a-lifetime singer. Even though I'm extremely fond of her contemporaries: Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holliday, Dinah Washington, Etta James, they cannot hold a candle to her. She truly was the "first lady of song."
Sinead O'connor is another immensely talented singer who Miley had the gall to criticize recently
Sinead still has a loyal but small following. She's past 40 and kind of let herself go, and sadly many people want their singers to be attractive and packaged in a certain way which I cannot understand. She writes her own stuff and always mixes it up with genres: folk, reggae, rock, experimental. A true artist, but not surprisingly, a very tortured one
