Rachel Platten is Creating Waves and a Movement with Sophomore Album
Following graduating college, I had stars in my eyes. I was hellbent on becoming a publicist. I've always been fascinated with the celebrity lifestyle but I also saw what a lot of people don't: famous people are people too. They don't struggle day to day trying to make end's meet or have the same problems but they are human first and foremost and should have well-rounded people in their corner. I grew up feeling like books and music gave me comfort and a form of escape when the world around me was grey so upon graduating college, I was set on becoming a publicist for an author or musician. Indie or otherwise.
Demi Lovato Will Have You in Love with Her Artistry with New Album 'Tell Me You Love Me'
One thing I love is someone who doesn't give a flying freak about what people think of them. They embrace who they are and they are candid about that person, flaws and all.

I'm not sure if I need to say this but Ke$ha started out as a songwriter for other artists, most famously Britney Spears. Her debut as an artist was called "Tik Tok," and featured a comment about brushing your teeth with Jack Daniels.

#MusicReview: DNCE debut album will make you D-A-N-C-E
Song by Song DNCE review "This ain't water but it floats my boat" is my favorite line on this track.

The intro opens with vocal scales with them introducing the simultaneous name of the track and the name of the band.
#MusicLove: Alessia Cara's #KnowItAll Is a Lesson In Hit-Making Music
