The Season of Porcelain Black

The Season of Porcelain Black by Lisa L

Fresh off a recent social media violation--Porcelain Black viciously had her social media accounts hacked by a fan, and had to take measures to protect herself and her loyal fans. She is all smiles; she is not letting anything bring her down this year.  She is working hard on perfecting everything in her life--getting in top-notch shape at the gym, operating a successful fashion line and gearing up to release the album she has put her entire heart into.

2012 saw the launch of Porcelain’s debut line, Noir. The reason for the great success of Noir line is because the products are items she actually does use on a regular basis. It is not the typical celebrity branded merchandise that the celebrity themselves would never even wear. Noir is made of the best materials, Porcelain only wants to share things she herself would wear. Right now the accessories she rocks the most come from Noir, The Kt tote is HUGE and amazing and sleek for any look. You can dress it up, or dress it down. The Krokodill I wear almost every day, the Metal-Plated Clutch dresses up any outfit perfectly. The metal strip doubles as a mirror. I always fix my makeup in that instead of going to the bathroom.

She is one of the rare celebrities who doesn’t see herself as anything but a regular person. She is just  Living her life the way she want it, no matter what other people’s judgments are. Doing what she has to do to make herself happy and living a lifestyle with no regrets. Freedom”.  Now that is the true American dream.

She consistently stays in contact with her fans, and interacts with them daily through social media. To fans, she is more than a musician and fashion designer. She is a beacon of hope. She has spoken personally to countless numbers of fans to help them work through and overcome personal struggles.

“I just want people to be happy, and be inspired. I want them to feel empowered when they hear my music. Like when they’re feeling down, they can listen to it, and it can cheer ‘em up.”

I praised her in a blog post for being a constant source of inspiration and encouragement to embrace individuality. I wrote this at one of the roughest times in my life, when I was freshly diagnosed with advanced Melanoma. I remember thinking, Porcelain is so beautiful and pale and influential, and she would be a great voice to speak out for awareness, so many would listen to her.

Upon reading my blog, she direct messaged me on Twitter and asked for my phone number. Over the course of a few months we had several great conversations. Now, two years later—Porcelain is always keeping tabs on me to see how I am doing and if there is anything she can do to help. Then she switches to girl talk, gossiping about fashion, movies—anything. I have crossed a precious line of fandom to friendship with one of my idols.

As I stated before, I know I am not the only fan she become personal with. This is what makes her music that much more effective. We know the beautiful voice behind the engaging lyrics is a sincere and sweet human being. She is simply just like the rest of us.

“I think its good to just be real and honest and not try and be something. Just be yourself.”

This makes the wait for the album somehow both easier, and harder at the same time. We crave her sound, but we know she is perfectionist so she is ensuring her fans receive the very best version of her.  Great music is a process, and the finished product will be golden.

It is exciting to know that Spring 2013 will kick off with a bang with the slated release of an official music video for upcoming single “Mama Forgive Me”.  Fans can look forward to the video hitting the airwaves towards the end of May.

Summer 2013 will be the season of Porcelain Black.
