I think I’ve developed a bit of a girl crush on UK singer Gemma Ray since we saw her playing at a woefully ill-attended gig at the Purple Turtle on Saturday night.
I loved the way that the stage was decorated with flowers, and she wore the cutest vintage dress and shoes, but she didn’t act the least bit cute at all. She just did her thing with stylish reserve, apparently not requiring the approval of the audience at all. Refreshing stuff from a female performer, I have to say, and especially when MTV on the pub TV simultaneously played videos of gyrating near-naked female ‘artists’ throughout.
Evidence of my girl crush abundantly obvious in the fact that I’ve been drawing Gemma Ray instead of doing my taxes today.
