Doug Brod: “I’m not a fan, but I understand why she’s popular… I think she’s absorbed a lot of what America is doing, with pop stars like Katy Perry, and giving her spin to that stuff. She was successful even before she was her own solo artist, writing songs for others.”

Listen: Jessie J’s “Nobody’s Perfect”

NEXT: Florence and the Machine

Kevin Wicks founded BBCAmerica.com's Anglophenia blog back in 2005 and has been translating British culture for an American audience ever since. While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
