As of this afternoon, if you logged into NPR.org, you’d see my pretty face (in a god awful platinum blond wig) next to Paula’s. Why is my pic on NPR? well-there’s been a lot of media hype about a recent spread on Jacob Cooper‘s TimberBrit. We shot a video two weeks ago that launched slightly before the NPR blurb on All Things Considered.
Here’s a link to the NPR interview – complete with slideshow of Melly, and below is the youtube video.
what’s been amazing to me is the comment threads, we’re even a twittering topic..and on reddit? Various blogs have picked it up, and man, has it sparked a lot of discussion into what ‘opera’ is. It seems we have two audiences commenting, those of the NPR ‘opera must be written by dead guys crowd’, and the real Britney fans who think it’s weird, but somehow have missed the point that this isn’t actually Britney…I’m a little disapointed in that I expected more from the crowd that supported us nearly a year ago…when we packed TWO SHOWS in a row on a Sunday night in Tribeca. So apparently, there are more than nine people willing to pay for it.
Hanging up the wig for the evening, as always, yours in platinum love,
