Sure, Christina Perri’s debut album “Lovestrong” landed in the top five of the Billboard charts the week it debuted, but perhaps even more noteworthy for the 24-year-old musician was the fact her double platinum first single “Jar Of Hearts” was performed by Lea Michele on the “Prom Queen” episode of “Glee” (is there a bigger stamp of having made it for musicians in our new pop culture landscape? Probably not). So now that she’s overtaking the airwaves and TV sets, we had the tattooed sensation give us a little bit of background information.

You’re enough, just the way you are.
