    She's a big star in Denmark (our local lady gaga LOL) and used to sing just in danish, but last year she made her first album in english and is trying to break the rest of Europe and the US.

    this is her biggest hit so far



    and singing in danish at the central station in Copenhagen.... with danish school children doing a kind of flash mob.



    And she's gay friendly too.... cute video (it's called "the one" in english)

    Yeah... the remixes for "Addiction" came out on Tues in the US and the "Gutter" remixes came out last week.



    Side note: I think she looks like Jamie Eason (the fitness model) in the Gutter video.

    I'm not sure that I like the Gutter song, but Addiction is a good track.

    I like the horn section on this live performance.

    Unfortunately, I did not know a town called Medina from my childhood, I did not mistake her name for a term related to highway anatomy, nor am I significantly aware of any other Medina's.

    But I do know the danish one you speak of, and I like. :-)

    Hmm - I think her accent is pretty noticeable and her lyrics are ... off? But I like it. Every time I hear Addiction I can't help hearing "It's like an erection" instead though. Don't know why that is.

    the city Medina in Saudi Arabia, is where the prophet Mohammed is buried, so it is a holy city for muslims.

    some crazy people used that as an excuse for throwing eggs at the singer. they think her choice of artist name is sacrilegious.
    (she didn't even name herself after the city, but rather it's because of her Chilean roots, she says. Medina is a common girls name in Chile apparently)

    she did tell them off though (this is how that sounds in danish)

    My father told us a story that Charles Dickens (who road a train through our area in Western New York), got off the train and said "Where's My Dinah?" That's how the town got its name. icon_wink.gif

    nice duet w. another danish singerTina Dickow. they represent very different genres, but sound really good together.

    they're performing "open wide" (Tina Dickow) and "Lonely" - danish version (Medina)
