Jessica Anne Newham is not the next Miley Cyrus. Nor is she the next BeyoncéKaty Perry or Robyn, though she gets a kick out of people telling her she could be the love child of the latter two. No, Newham is Betty Who, an Australian-born singer who earned a degree in pop music from Boston’s Berklee College of Music and feels a lot of weird emotions when she sees Usher.

“I got the 8701 Tour DVD when I was probably too young to be watching Usher’s 8701 Tour DVD because he comes out in these leather baggy pants, shirtless with like a floor length fur coat and like a really dumb hat, and I remember seeing it and being like, ‘I’m confused and aroused, but I don’t know what these emotions mean because I’m 11,’” Who told Radio.com. “That was a really strange confusing time in my life.”

Betty Who is also a certified viral sensation after her song “Somebody Loves You” was used in a video where a man, with help from a flash mob made up of his friends and family, proposes to his boyfriend in a Salt Lake City Home Depot.
