Were proof needed that ‘Fuck You’ is in fact the new ‘Crazy’/'Since U Been Gone’/'Poker Face,’ London singer-songwriter Eliza Doolittle is one of about a million artists (not an accurate estimate) to begin incorporating the song into live sets.

I shudder to think how many more artists would follow suit were there to be some sort of profanity-less version, but unfortunately that song simply does not exist.

Here’s Eliza’s cover recorded backstage with two awkward 14-year-olds she has charitably recruited to play in her band. Stripped down to just double bass and vocals, it’s got a nice laid-back jazzy feel, although it’s probably best not to actually watch the video because her actions and expressions are ill-fitting and really fucking annoying. I don’t think she’ll make it as an actress.

If you do watch the video, look out for the “oh shit she’s a gold digger…” line and the awkward expressions on the supporting cast’s faces as they struggle not to blurt out “nigga” at the end.

Sad she's try to grab attention by covering a genuinely good, catchy song. But I guess she's not the first person.

Oh man those kids in the back are priceless. I love how much the bassist cringed at almost saying 'nigga'.

Also you're very right about her mannerisms, fuck.

"Cause being in love with your arse ain't cheap"

"I really hate your arse right now"

Hahahahaha those lines sound so weird that way. Cool cover though.
