You know the last name- she's Judd Apatow's 14 year old daughter. And she's also really funny and teenagery and cool and her dad was the exec producer of Freaks & Geeks and ok obviously there is a pattern here.
You gotta love these Youtube stars. It just ain't what it used to be when I was a kid. Now you can live in a random town a million miles from the places where you can really "make it", but still "make it" by getting lots of people to listen to your skills online.
I love the whole "I rearranged this on my keyboard myself and I am in my bedroom with my Sonic poster and photos of friends in the background". She just has a really strong pretty voice for someone so young.
I include her mostly because she was snagged by Sofia Coppola to be in her dreamy (would you expect anything less?) film Somewhere (okay, a pattern here again... I already mentioned Sofia's The Virgin Suicides). But she's not just a pretty face in a famous family- cough cough Dakota- her understated acting is really lovely. This is really quietly beautiful movie. Side note: those may be the most amazing glasses I have seen in my life.
The Bleubird kids.
Duh. I mean, she's cool even when I do things like make her wear clothes that are too small and therefore make her look like she has no neck:
Hey, just trying to get my money's worth. This cost a whole 90 cents at Value World!
Thanks for reading! I think you're cool too.
