      That is what is called a two pronged antennae to pick up a remote signal to tell her to attempt to sing some note. Always wondered what ‘her interference trouble’ was? Happens a lot in cases where being a glam bimbo, is the first order of call.

    My goodness! That girl has got a lot to offer.
    You mean she sings, too? Hardly necessary!

    Had to check her out on youtube, Found an acceptable Habanera and some showtunes. Not in a class with the current crop of outstanding young lyric mezzos, but she has other attributes.

      Don’t know about the level of acceptability of her Habanera, but you should listen to her mangled French in the Seguidilla!

    You mean her silicone prostheses are infected? If they are, she may become deflated for a while if they have to be removed!

    I can see why a certain maestro/singer/director is interested in her career. It’s what’s up front that counts, infection or inflation notwithstanding.

    I’m much more interested in her boyfriend. Nicer Tits, and he can sing.

    My dear Gethin, I Love you, drop the fluffy one!!

    Remember the entire Chapter 10(?) of Gore Vidal’s Myra Breckenbridge when she (also Myron) had to remove her silicone leaking implants…it comprised just two short identical alarming sentences : “Where are my Breasts?”

    Perhaps K.J’s chest infection was caused by use of unrefined helium balloon gas; or it is in short supply, these past few weeks. A substitution with laughing gas might also do wonders for her voice.

    Or a quick course of chest acupuncture with hat pins might correct her troubling condition.
