Ah. Shirley Manson. The front woman for Garbage.
Last weekend in Dallas was Edgefest. An all day music festival put on by the local hard rock radio station there. I didn't know who half the bands were, but the ones I did know of were a mix of ones I didn't care about either way, and ones I loved. Garbage, Cake, Blue October, Arctic Monkeys, Foxy Shazam, Ting Tings, Cage the Elephant, Black Keys, Evanescence, Switchfoot, and many more were there. With pieces of the lineup, it almost seemed like a 90's music festival. The main reason I wanted to go was... GARBAGE.

When I watched MTV on in the 90's, it was hoping to catch a glimpse of 'Happy When It Rains', or 'Stupid Girl'. When  Romeo and Juliet came out? I flipped out about '#1 Crush' being a part of that.
I was one of the many girls who didn't just like their music, I wanted to BE Shirley Manson. Her beauty, her voice, and her style can't be matched by anyone I can remember from that time.

Clearly, you can see she still has that unique style that's always caught the attention of many.
