i'm not denying her ability to sing. i just want to know where this ridiculous accent comes from. she doesn't speak that way normally, so why does it come out when she sings?

pirate?

is a strong australian accent

wouldn't blame you though for being confused

"Normal Singing" is with an American accent anyway. Everyone's so accustomed to it they don't notice sometimes.

i think she's good. she's an aussie writing good music, and not having some fucked-up personal life that we all know about. good on her
