Lady Love: My Top 5 Girl Crushes of 2011

These ladies aren't just easy on the eyes -- they're easy on the ears, too. They may not have much in common with each other, but what they do have in common is beauty, brains, talent and a new record in 2011. This year was a big one for women in rock and each one of these dames, at some point over the past 12 months, has made me curse my desk job, wishing just a little bit that I made a living rocking people's asses. They made me dance in my adjustable swivel chair, long for porcelain skin, a Swedish accent and messy tresses down to my waist. These are my top five girl crushes of 2011.

#5. Annie Clark, St. Vincent (Strange Mercy)

Also, I see you have a thing for chicks with dark hair, light eyes, and red lips. Cool, me too. (Except I guess for me, they're girl crushes since I'm a female.)

Oh, lol, for some reason I thought you were a dude (even though Ginny is obviously a female name..duh. I think I got confused by an article). My bad! : ( But also, good taste in girl crushes!
