Luke Top is a renaissance man. Having collaborated with Cass McCombs, the Papercuts, and Foreign Born, his most recent endeavor with guitarist Lewis Pesacov, Fool's Gold, is as diverse as his background. The Israeli-born son of an Iraqi refugee and a Russian-born aviator, Top has adapted his Jewish faith into a new breed of afro-electronic music. Singing in Hebrew and accompanied by a 10-piece band, Luke Top and Fool's Gold is single-handedly transforming the Los Angeles music scene.

Another one of our favorite artists to surface in the last year, Brit popster (though he's got elements of rap, rock, and even classical music up his sleeve) Dan Black first rose to fame with his cover of the Notorious B.I.G's "Hynotize," which featured him rapping over the drums from Rihanna's hit "Umbrella" and a string section.

When Tori Amos pulled into town last week to play a slew of holiday promo shows (she's plugging her new "seasonal" album Midwinter Graces) we convinced her to stop by the Out offices to chat. We've hung out with Tori before (last time she told us a great Madonna story) but this was the first time we were able to get her on video.

For perhaps obvious reasons, a Catholic school upbringing often seems to serve as the catalyst for unleashing the diva buried deep inside those predisposed to being possessed by pop music demons. It was true for Madonna, it was true for Cyndi Lauper, and it's true for Convent of the Sacred Heart alum Lady GaGa. When she wasn't at Mass with classmates Paris and Nicky Hilton, the burgeoning star was storming the clubs of New York City's Lower East Side.

When Katy Perry chatted with Out late last year about her new song "UR So Gay," a flippant kiss-off to her guyliner-wearing, H&M-shopping, metrosexual ex-boyfriend, she had no idea how listeners -- both gay and straight -- would respond. Now, in a matter of months, the once bubbling-under singer has blown up, releasing her new album, One of the Boys, rising to the top of the charts with her stupidly catchy single "I Kissed a Girl," and launching a debate over her carefree use of the G word.
