I'm addicted to picspammy. This month it's your favourite person. I have about a trillion favourite people in the universe, but I decided to go with my favourite singer/songwriter girl of awesome, Miss Jenny Lewis.

Now I love this girl for about a million reasons. Her songs were the first that I could really relate to as a female. I used to be one of those "girls don't make good musicians I only like guys because they rock harder" type of people, and then I heard The Frug and realised there are some things that only girls can relate to. I thought I was some kind of weird emotional freak until I started listening to Rilo Kiley and realised no, I'm just a girl who's kind of fucked up, much like this one (I mean that with love!). Her lyrics are beautiful and I kind of want to steal her hair. Jenny Lewis is my favourite person.




I'm a modern girl but I fold in half so easily.










I'd sacrifice money and heaven all for love, let me be loved.










So I found myself a sweetheart with the softest of hands. We were unlucky in love but I'd do it all again.










They warn you about killers and thieves in night. I worry about cancer and living right, but my mama never warned me about my own destructive appetite.










Let's not forget ourselves good friend, I am flawed if I'm not free.










You are what you love and not what loves you back.


Rilo Kiley - The Frug


Rilo Kiley - The Moneymaker


Jenny Lewis w/ The Watson Twins - Rise Up With Fists


Jenny Lewis w/ The Watson Twins - You Are What You Love (live)


Ben Gibbard & Jenny Lewis - Nothing Better (live)



Also, if you haven't heard it yet, go get the album Acid Tongue. It's the best of the year.

I adore her so much, but I can never find any decent pictures. Where on earth did you find most of these? Half of them I've never seen before, but she looks beautiful as always.

o man, I scoured the internet for these. jennylewis.com, rilokiley.net, and lots of searches through flickr and photobucket. I found a bunch I never knew existed but are now my new favourites!

Ahaha, thank you! I'll have to settle in for a proper search hunt today.

first of all, thank you for linking this at bandgirls, because I totally needed to de-stress by fangirling over one of my favorite people ever :D

\O/ The Frug was totally the song that made me fall in love with Jenny/Rilo Kiley.

I was going to make some, you know, intelligent comment about how much I love her, but all these pictures have reduced me down to 'eeeeee! Jenny's so awesome!' and I think I may have to snag some of these pics to make icons since, for some tragic reason, I don't have any of her.
14th-Dec-2008 05:19 am (UTC)
no problem! I'm glad so many people are loving Jenny as much as I do. she's just so pretty and amazing.
14th-Dec-2008 04:27 am (UTC)

Jenny Lewis would be my fictional girlfriend if she wasn't old enough to be my mother. Either way she's so pretty and talented and just *___*
