You may have seen her performing at the MTV Music Awards in a bedazzled cast, or you’ve heard her song “Price Tag (feat. B.o.B)” on the radio this summer. Jessie J continues to get stuck in your head with her album Who You Are. Although it came out in April, this album was the perfect summer playlist for fans of British music, strong vocal ability and relatable lyrics. Who You Are stands as one of the few albums that I can listen to in full without skipping songs, with “Who’s Laughing Now”, “Do It Like a Dude” and “Who You Are” on repeat.
Serving as the only book I read this summer besides the endless amounts of magazines I leafed through, My Horizontal Life: A Collection of One-Night Stands written by Chelsea Handler, was surprisingly entertaining. I’m not a huge fan of her stand-up comedy or awards show hosting skills but this book proved that she is a great storyteller. Although it won’t make any school reading lists in a thousand years, I’d recommend it to any fans of Tucker Max’s I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell.
