Alicia Keys

The Element of Freedom is must have album for your music player, Alicia Keys is a star – love her makeup in this photo.

And the day came
When the risk it took
To remain tight and closed in the bud
Was more painful
Than the risk it took bloom
This is the element of freedom

Lana Del Rey

Lana del Rey has been on the glitterati buzz for a while, her song Video Games is so beautiful, it is worth a post. I also encourage you to go to her website and see the video for Born To Die. PS. I, too, want my own music video with a throne chair and the two tigers, please.

She reminds me of the coolness of Regina Spektor and depth of voice of Natalie Merchant On her Facebook she is described as Hollywood pop / sad core – too cool for school.
