Most Pop Stars are low on actual talent and high on physical attractiveness. Say what you want about their music itself, but when it comes down to it, for the most part, if they don’t fit the idealized norm for their society they’re not going to make it as a Pop Star.

Enter, Viktoria Modesta, a fledgling Latvian Pop Star who is boldly putting herself, and her ‘disability’ at the forefront of her career. It’s great to see someone who doesn’t fit the mold do something so flashy and confident. It’s not only good for people with physical challenges, it’s good for humanity.

The music isn’t quite my style but the video is absolutely worth a watch. The way her prosthetic is used is surprisingly original. The end especially takes advantage of her spiffy leg, and it actually makes me want to see more of her videos in the future just to see how creative they can get!
