Some people were just born cool. Jenny Lewis is one of those people. Everytime I see her live, whether with Rilo Kiley, Postal Service, or solo, she absolutely blows me away. She has rad style and, Jesus, so much frickin’ talent crammed into that 5’2” body of hers. Like, you know how most people feel about Lady Gaga right now? That’s how I feel about Jenny, like, all the time.
I have also just realized that I have mad love for women in music who break up with their bandmate-boyfriends. Stevie Nicks and Lindsay Buckingham? Check. Gwen and Tony? Check. And now Jenny and Blake. I love them even more when they go off to basically kick their boyfriends’ asses in just about every meaningful category.
Jonathan Rice? 700,000% upgrade over Blake. If only he’d cut his damn hair…
Anyway, here’s some Jenny awesomeness:
And with the Rilo Kiley boys:
Did I mention she was on Golden Girls? See? Born cool:
And as a bonus, watching One Night In Paris.
Oh, you’re not convinced yet? Fine, I’ll whip out the big guns.
