You know what I love? People from Brisbane who have gone done good (it's International Speak Like a Yokel Day, FYI).
Take, for example, me. And when I say me I mean Kate Miller-Heidke. We share the same name, so I am assuming we also have must more in common.
I LOVE her. I hate the term 'girl-crush' with a passion, but if I were to have one, it would be her.
Just look at her:
I mean, she's clearly wearing a Ken Done scarf here. Do I really need to tell you any more? She's probably the only person (besides Kath Day-Knight, of course) that can rock Ken Done and make it fabulous.
Anyway, all her songs are amazing. Like, say, Mike Skinner of The Streets, her songs tend to tell a story. And I like that in a song. Although I don't like that in a person, unless the story somehow involves me.
My current favourite off her album Curiouser is this baby, I like you better when you're not around:
(Sorry for the poor quality vid...but I don't control YouTube, so quit your complaining).
I can't remember the last time I listened to a song so many times in a row.
It's so cheery, yet so bitchy. Kind of like me.
"I mean like what the hell is with her, I mean like, no offence!"
Kate Miller-Heidke & I like you better when you're not around?
Decision: FUCKING AWESOME.
