Cat Power
I cant believe theres no thread on the amazing Chan yet.
If Helen of Troys beauty could launch a thousand ships then I think Cat has the Voice to do such a thing.
Her voice is almost eirey its so beautiful.

I've been wanting to get her new CD for a few days now. I have no idea what she sounds like but there is so much hype around her lately it makes me curious

I'm all for feline rights...

(as with most shoegazing/new wave/ethereal balls, I don't like her music or her PETA-affiliations)

i like cat power's music a lot, but if you ever have the chance to see her live, i warn you - she has a REALLY hard time finishing performances. she often storms off stage in some kind of fit of something.

^^ Yeah, I heard about that. Apparently she has meltdowns during her performances. Makes her kind of endearing!

i've seen her twice and she did that both times. i don't know, it's kind of endearing, and it's also kind of annoying. i can listen to her albums and be so in love with them, so i guess i'll just do that

I love Cat Power... but sometimes she's overly depressing. Like 'Names' on You Are Free. Ehh..

I like her a lot too, but agree she can be quite melancholy. I have to be in the mood for it. Though her new album gets away from that quite a bit, and i think she's better for it.

I think she's just very very... shy, or secretive. Apparently a lot of her records have been made in the midst of emotional breakdowns. I find it quite endearing, but like with most unstable people, it can be quite annoying. I feel for her... her music has made me burst into tears more than once.

i love most of her albums and most of her music
as for her stupid personality...that's usually what sort of discourages me from her live performances (i've only seen her once though), she's never struck me as shy or even intrigued me with her i'm-so-arty emotional crap, i can only think of her as very talented as well as very disrespectful, ungrateful, egocentric and just plain pathetic to be around. i guess it's an issue with most women in rock music...because they're a minority, they really think they're a minority in the entire world and that drives them to fall into ridiculous attitudes that only end up portraying women as laughable posers.

I was able to see her on Letterman last week, and she was fabulous. She sang amazingly, and she was dancing around barefoot being silly - it was endearing.
