Yes, she's wearing a shirt with her face on it (this is going to be a new fashion trend, I can feel it! I just ordered ten with my own face on them) and yes she's using her phone to read the lyrics to the song (because she hasn't done it in a while), but goddamn if this cover of landslide isn't utterly listenable.… » 3/22/14 3:00pm 3/22/14 3:00pm
