Viktoria Modesta - Born Risky

Random internet surfing last night resulted in this new and unusual find. I watched the video twice before I did anything. After the first viewing I sat and thought about what I had just seen. Then I had to watch it again. Intriguing.

Meet Viktoria Modesta.

My initial reaction was why is this very beautiful woman playing like she's an amputee? I mean, I get the Gaga-esque bizarre weirdness merged with pretty artisticness of it all, but maybe a tad extreme? I could go so far as to say the song itself is empty pop without the handicapped theme... but then I started reading about who this woman is. She is an amputee who has not let it stand in the way of her doing everything she wants to do. She's also a talented creative personality with very interesting taste. And I like her eye makeup choices. I don't know enough about her to do more than post links and let you discover her for yourself, but as far as I'm concerned, she has a new fan in me.


  1. She's beautiful inside and out! What a spectacular show of music, it really does speak to me. I went to research about her at once and I'm so glad I did. What an inspirational story. Thank you for this post!

  2. An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that you should write more on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but generally people are not enough to speak on such topics. picbear
