Heavy-metal sensation, 8-year-old Juliet of Queensland, rocks our socks off

0

Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead is 66 years old. James Hetfield of Metallica is 48. Randy Blythe of Lamb of God is 40. Never too old for rock ‘n’ roll, right?

Or, apparently, too young.

Welcome to the heavy-metal pantheon, Juliet Childs — a product of Queensland, all of 8 years old, and a bonafide music sensation.

A video featuring Juliet, posted to YouTube earlier this month, had 13.8 million views as of 24 January. Her mum shot the footage. A family friend and music producer, Rob Sharpe, took Juliet’s angsty love song to her family dog Robert and her pet fish and slipped it into a full-metal jacket.

“My First Hardcore Song” is on iTunes, and there are T-shirts. And a Facebook page. Bite that, Lemmy.

What’s next, then, for this hard-drivin’, air-kickin’ rock ‘n’ rebel? According to the Courier Mail, her parents are drawing the line. It’s back to school for this Grade 3 wunderkind.

Now that’s hardcore.
