At least in our head they are going head to head.
But come on, two young upstarts with strong images gunning for the same audience, that’s got rivalry written all over it.
So with two new videos out, who wins in this affliction of attitude (BAM, that's some good alliteration)...
See what we mean about sneak peaks? It’s all a bit ridiculous. But damnit if we aren’t going to fall into line and talk about them anyway.
Skylar Grey, the girl with the voice from every chorus ever, (that’s not true, but she did do Dre’s “I Need A Doctor”, Diddy’s “Coming Home”, and Lupe Fiasco’s “Words I Never Said”) has struck out solo. And she’s bringing something that’s been missing for a little while: Darkness.
She’s got a bit of a Goth thing going on. So if you miss Evanescence, you’re in luck.
Anyway, the following teaser just gives us an excuse to post a video of Skylar, alone in a hotel room, with her piano (because you know how all hotel rooms have pianos), delivering a spine tingling rendition of ‘Love The Way You Lie’, which she co-wrote. What a talented one...
