The Buzz On: Natalia Kills

Meet Natalia Kills. You might also know her by one of her aliases: Natalia Cappuccini, Verse, Verbz or Verbalicious. Finally, my favorite part of speech gets some love!

24-year-old England native Natalia Kills, born Natalia Keery-Fisher, has been at the entertainment game for a long time. Natalia’s been acting since the age of 6, landed her first TV role at 9 and won a LAMDA Gold Medal for acting at 13. After giving singing and songwriting a try, Natalia Kills was discovered by Will.i.am in 2008 after he took notice of her self-produced and written debut EP Wommanequin. Not just anyone can woo a Black Eyed Pea.

Natalia Kills’ “dark pop” has garnered a pretty heavy comparison to the one and only Lady Gaga. And after a couple listens, we have to say that’s a pretty fair assessment. Both Natalia and Gaga worked with Akon and producer Cherry Cherry Boom Boom on their debut studio albums, and Natalia Kills’ single “Mirrors” could totally be a B-side on Lady Gaga’s The Fame. And we’re definitely not complaining about that.

Check out Natalia Kills, and catch her on tour with Buzzworthy favorite Robyn. And look for Natalia Kills’ debut studio album, Perfectionist, in early 2011.
