      If you don't know, why even take the time to post? Go Google and leave the true fans to honor her memory with respect.

      Wellllll...why not go back and listen to Lady gaga, since apparently that kind of low level talent is the only thing that moves your meter. DUH!!!

    I have never heard of this woman. It seems a lot of people on this board know her. I must have been under a rock.

      Agreed. look at all the ignorant fools leaving comments like "who is she?". Our society has really become a breeding ground for mindless sheep. How can anyone NOT know who she is? I give up on today's generation. Let them enjoy losers like Lady gaga and Pink. they think that crap is music!
