Your Pop Alternative Source
The intimate shin-dig consisted mostly cocktail-sipping press-types. Of course, there were a handful of Natalia uber-fans who she extended an invitation, one notably rocking a day-old tattoo of Natalia's signature. After the crowd boozed for about an hour while Perfectionist blasted out into the Manhattan skyline, Cherrytree Records' founder and pop songwriter extraordinaire Martin Kierszenbaum welcomed Kills to the stage. The pint-sized pop star stepped behind her microphone stand—sans dancers—and took it back to the basics, stripping down her five-song set to just a keyboardist and her impressive pipes. Personal highlights included her soulful, cheeky rendition of the no-description-necessary "Kill My Boyfriend" (which should totally be her next single) and a beautifully-gutting ballad version of the Akon-produced "Mirrors."
