Uh Ooooh BK stand up! They always do, no matter where you are! OK, so I came across this video on Huffingtonpost.com & I must say, I like it. I really really like it. I guess you can say it’s the answer to Miss Katy Perry’s ‘California Girls’. Smart! I hadn’t heard of this chick before, but thanks to this track she’s now On My Radar!
She did an interview with HuffPost and she described her love affair with Brooklyn.
"I landed in Brooklyn a little over year ago and immediately noticed a difference in the residents, as well as a difference in myself," she said. "It’s undoubtedly part of the New York City from the movies — but has more of a neighborhood feel. If the city is four-on-the-floor, then Brooklyn is a syncopated kick drum. There’s really just nothing like it."
“‘Brooklyn Girls’ allows me to be my own role model — my own #wcw,” she said (with a nod to Woman Crush Wednesday). “I hope other women can take that same attitude from it.”
I’m loving her sound and we’ll all be able to hear more when she drops “The Brooklyn EP” on September 9. However, you can head over to iTunes and preorder now and get ‘Brooklyn Girls’ and ‘Revolution’ instantly.

P.S. I told you girls run the world didn’t I? Didn’t Iiiiiiii! Ha!
Sadly, the 16 year-old Toronto native who’s remembered for her incredible message, passed away on Monday. I blogged about Olivia Wise back in October and posted a video of her covering Katy Perry’s hit single ‘Roar’. The teen was battling brain cancer, but mustered up the strength to record a beautiful, tear-jerking ballad; making it her own. The video swept the internet and received over 1 million views on youtube.
The cover was brought to Katy Perry’s attention and she sent a personalized message to Olivia saying: I love you. A lot of people love you, and that’s why your video got to me and it moved everyone that saw it.” It definitely moved me and I was saddened to hear that she had lost her battle with brain cancer. However, I smiled when watching the video again, seeing how courageous she was inspires me. During what could’ve been her darkest days she found reason to smile, to keep going. We all can learn a lot from her.
Olivia’s cover can be purchased on iTunes. According to the Toronto Sun, all proceeds go to brain tumor research via the Liv Wise Fund. Support if you can. Rest In Peace Olivia Wise. Thanks for sharing. xo Roz-O
VIDEO: GIRL WITH BRAIN CANCER COVERS “ROAR” BY KATY PERRY
This video will more than likely make you smile a little and cry a little! I know I did! "Roar" is such an inspirational song so it makes sense that Olivia Wise would find strength in it and record her own rendition of the song. BRAVO Olivia! Bravo! xo ROZ-O!
Olivia Wise has Brain Cancer. She came into a recording studio for her first time and recorded the Katy Perry song Roar. She couldn’t walk or stand, she didn’t have her full breath or the energy she used to, and she was managing her new pains and new limitations. While her physical condition was rapidly fading, her spirit remained untouched.
Be sure to visit and subscribe to her youtube channel here. Prayers for Miss Olivia Wise!

According to Billboard, Katy Perry’s ‘Roar’ is aiming to sell 525,000+ downloads it’s first week! You better go KP! ‘Roar’ will easily give Perry the biggest sales week of the year for a song, and likely her largest sales week.’ It’s clear that you kids are loving this track and legal music downloading is still alive! Thank goodness!
In other single news, Lady Gaga’s monsters are downloading her latest ‘Applause’ at a steady rate as well. It’s projected to ‘sell around 200,000 to 225,000 downloads.’
