Jenny Owen Youngs is a guitar-wielding singer-songwriter who isn't afraid to speak her mind. When she isn't rhetorically asking, "What the fuck was I thinking?" on her breakthrough song "Fuck Was I," she treats her fans to onstage rants that run the gamut from South Park to encyclopedias. The New Jersey-born Youngs even won over bitchy blogger Perez Hilton with her unabashed wordplay and guts. Yet despite her blunt lyrics, she has a sweet, demure voice that sounds like a less-British Kate Nash. Youngs' recently released The Take Off All Your Clothes EP includes a cover of Nelly's "Hot in Herre." In concert, the indie-rocker tackles other hip-hop classics, like "Milkshake" and Missy Elliott's "Work It."
