It doesn’t take me too long to write someone off, which is (I think) a universally known fact. If not, now you know. I’m pretty tolerant of everything, but once someone crosses me, that’s it. Same with music, food, films etc. If I didn’t have a good first impression of it, chances are I won’t give it a try again. The irony there being is that for a long time I was unable to make a good first impression on many many people. Surely there’s some explanation there. Psychology buddies, wanna help me out?
When I first heard of Jessie J being the next Lady GaGa (I hate when press uses phrases as such) I thought “Hmmm.” Then I listened to her song “Do It Like A Dude” and was simultaneously offended and disgusted for my gender and my ears.
However I recently found out that she did a song for the Easy A soundtrack (you should watch it, it’s a great film – I rewatched it on the plane, because Delta is so crap, that the other films I’d seen before SINCE THEY WERE FROM 2010. Seriously – where was Source Code?) as pointed out to me by one of new CA besties and I was completely unaware it was her. And now I’m torn because it’s a great song and Jessie J is obviously talented (but has such abrasive music).
Here’s the full length song here. Whatja think guys? Worth giving the girl from the same ends as me another shot?*
