Baby Girl


In a perfect world, she would have lived.

She would have been one of the most famous movie stars of our generation. She would have won an Oscar. She would have been the hottest pop star on the music charts. She would have married. She would have had adorable little celebrity babies.

Would have.


I'm the interpreter. I'm the one who takes your words and brings them to life. I was trained to sing and dance and laugh, and that's what I want to do.


Being female, you're raised to be a good, sweet girl and not flip out. So, I had to give myself permission to be mean and evil. It's tough. But I've always been drawn to the darker side of things.


All I can do is leave it in God's hands and hope that my fans feel where I'm coming from.


Keep working hard and you can get anything that you want. If God gave you the talent, you should go for it. But don't think it's going to be easy. It's hard!


I don't want to abandon one work for the other, and I don't think I need to sacrifice anything to put my all into either one of them.


I know that people think I'm sexy and I am looked at as that. It is cool with me. It's wonderful to have sexy appeal. If you embrace it, it can be a very beautiful thing.


You have to love what you do to want to do it everyday.


I stay true to myself and my style, and I am always pushing myself to be aware of that and be original. There are times I can't even figure myself out.


I think it's important to take a break, you know, from the public eye for a while, and give people a chance to miss you. I want longevity. I don't want to get out there and run myself ragged and spread myself thin.


I want people to remember me as a full on entertainer and a good person.

Its those times I truly hate it when someone young dies. She has so much more to give to the world-so much! She will never be forgotten!! xox

That's a great post. I don't really know who this person is but I really like the quotes.
I think P.A was cancelled. I don't know why. I LOVED it. Especially Ted. And Laura's wardrobe.

She was marvelous...the music world is lacking soulful singers like she was..ones that had actual talent and don't just hide behind big explosives on stage or mime. She was beautiful!! xx

Shannon said...

Her song "Try Again" gets stuck in my head at least once a week.

Great post.

She was the reason I owned overalls. She was amazing. I'll never forget where I was when I heard the news: I was sitting on a bench, next to a Coke machine with my best friend Jolyn, (in overalls), in Kohala, HI. Miss her music.

Beautiful post Jen!

I remember my older cousins listening to her when I was really young. It's sad that someone so talented had to die such a tragic and untimely death.

Great post.

Wil Harris said...

The music industry would be so different now if she was still alive. I still remember where I was when she passed, that was a sad day. This is a beautiful tribute!

Alex said...

God this reminds me how much I miss her making music. I'm going to go listen to her now...

It was so sad when this happened...I wasn't necessarily a fan (mostly just because I never followed her career) but I get the sense she was immensely talented.

she really was such an amazing talent.

Oh to Be a Muse said...

This is the only way I've ever remembered her: as an awesome singer/entertainer and a great person.

She was my all-time favorite. I dressed up like her in middle school almost all the time. She is the reason I love a great side swept bang!

Fashion Tales.... said...

Superb post! She was such an incredible artist.

Tights Lover said...

So true.

It's easy to forget about her now, but she got so huge so quick...and then it was over just as quickly.

I hope you have a great weekend, too!
